Tucson is what is it, and old western town. My shower head did not work when I checked in, but they got it working immediately! Very Nice. The AC...

We had made a reservation online with one of the major booking agencies. We asked for a room with 2 beds for 3 people. When we arrived they did not have one so they gave us 2 rooms for the original price quoted. The area was very quiet and in a safe neighborhood. This an older motel, but newly painted...

The overall location wasn't so loud or terrible, however the pictures they have online definitely show something much more luxorious then they actually are. I'm going to say those photos are at least 10 yrs old! There was no coffee maker, no port for internet, no in room work desk! These were definitely apts turned into a motel. Our room...

My business partner and I visit Tucson every year and we stayed at numerous motels. All we did was sleep there. The owners are very nice to us, and we would stay there again. For the people that do not like the place go some place else and pay 4 to 5 times more. We do not travel 3,000 miles...

When even Motel 6 was gouging everyone for $60+ a night for some stupid jem or rock show this place allowed me to get a room and even keep some of my hard earned money and only charged me $40 a night including taxes. Thanks for not robbing me!!

“(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 :)”
