I reserved what this motel laughingly refoers to as the "double room," so called not because of the size, but the fact that it has 2 beds. When I got there to take the room they told me they had none of the room type I had requested as they had reserved them for those who simply drive up as...

It's an older place, but a great place to stay. Never any problems. Been staying here for years. The swimming pool is ok. Quiet in the summer time, ( no college ). We would always recommend this place, it is very good for the price.

It's old and basic but after traveling for hours it will do! Plus the price was the cheapest I could find and it's right across an awesome bar. I found it to be cozy and basically a good deal for the price.

The bare necessities on a budget. Once she found the booking (messy office, stacks of paper everywhere) the price quoted was immediately questioned. Her dissatisfaction at the low number ($32/night) brought to my attention. I just shrugged to give her the impression that it wasn't my problem. She accepted and proceeded to check me in. Asked if I needed the...

Upon arrival the front desk managers were great. They gave me great advice on restaurants and things to do in Downtown Tucson. Rooms were very quiet and kept clean considering the historic age of the hotel. The price of the room was perfect for the amount of service I received. Its a great place to stay for a weekend or...

The hotel staff is very friendly and location is perfect to stay in Tucson. Since my last stay, the owners have done quite a lot of changes in the rooms by upgrading their furnitures and amenties they offer. Best of all, my price was practically the same since last. The area has done a lot of improvements as well and...

 of 5 bubbles Bill83873, 31 Dec 2015 | Read review
“(i was told) Rooms with kitchenettes are located in the inner circle driveway, if you book a room without it, be prepared to have to park your car on the other side of your room and walk around the corner to get to room, OR be prepared to drive and park right in front of your door along a narrow one way gravel road. Can be inconvenient if traveling in a huge SUV :)”
