“Incredible Value”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

My family and I just stayed in this hotel, and we had a great experience. It's in a convenient location, and the price is very competitive -- you can't fairly compare this place with a 5-star ranch resort.

The rooms are all suites with separate living room and bedroom, a bathroom, and a tiny kitchenette with microwave and mini-fridge. There are three sinks -- one in the bathroom, one outside the bathroom, and one in the kitchenette. The two double beds are modest-sized, but they were clean and comfortable. Overall, the suite felt pretty big even with 2 adults and 2 kids sharing it. We had no problems with the cooling system, noise, or maintenance.

The staff is extremely friendly and laid-back here (in a good way), and the cleaning service was great. They had a nice outdoor pool and hot tub, which we used. Free breakfast every day went beyond continental with hot food and a waffle maker. You could also get free coffee, apples, and cookies throughout the day. Parking was a breeze, but then again, this was Tucson.

All in all, I can highly recommend staying here. Sure, there are also some great vacation rentals in the area, but if you are going the hotel route, give this place serious consideration.

Room Tip: Not sure a pool-side view is worth the extra money; skip it.

I stayed for 6 nights to attend a family celebration. Local family, including young children, often visited me at the hotel, both in my suite and in the lobby, Every time I looked toward the reception desk to see if they minded, all I ever saw was staff with a smile. In fact, all the staff from front desk, to housekeepers, to breakfast staff, always greeted guests with a smile. My suite was clean and the bed comfortable. Trader Joe's location across the road made stocking my mini fridge a breeze - especially since I didn't have my own transportation. My only request is that the elevator door be painted a contrasting color to ease identification.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the ice machine which is a bit noisy.

We stayed for 7 nights in this quiet, clean, comfortable hotel conveniently located in St Philip's Plaza at Campbell and River. Staff were friendly, helpful and caring. We loved the pool and being able to borrow books. Breakfast was cheerfully served and started the day well. Good value. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the Windmill Suites when I visited U of A at the end of August. I have had unforgettable experiences there. The reception was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, roomy, practical and the bed supper comfortable. Besides the free bicycles are available for guests, which was very appreciated to be used to enjoy a city tour...

Fairly quiet even next to pool. Easy to walk to Zinburger, PF Chang's, Scordato's Pizzeria & Scordato's and Trader Joe's is across street. As with most breakfast included hotels, I'd rather let them keep what we Americans allow to pass for food and have a reduction in rates while I go to a bakery or restaurant to get healthier, tastier food. We were pleasantly surprised by a Saturday morning farmers' market in the complex near the hotel. Knowing this, next time we stay here we'll bring a cooler and see what's available. And we will stay here again. Had the spa & pool to myself at 7 AM.

We stayed at the Windmill Suites when we took our son to check in to the U of A this summer. It was a great location at a great price. The beds were surprisingly comfortable and the room was spacious. The elevator in the wing we stayed at was a little retro - really small and looked like an after thought in the design but it was functional and got us to the floor we needed. Over all I would recommend this place for a weekend stay when visiting Tucson or your student at the U of A. The local is perfect. We also got to enjoy the Farmer's Market that was taking place in the plaza on Saturday morning. That was an added treat we didn't expect but really enjoyed.
