An older, nicely maintained motel, with super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Delicious and filling made-to-order breakfast at the restaurant on property, included with our booking. Clean pool and hot tub area. Location was perfect for getting to where I needed to get to each day. The only 'problem' encountered was the lack of hot water for my shower. It...

Older hotel nicely updated with fairly spacious rooms and modern bathrooms. We had a 1st floor king-sized bed room in the building by the pool. Hotel layout is spread out with some rooms across the "alley" in a separate building than where you check in. Since it's an older hotel, walls seem to be a little thinner than you'd expect--we...

I always try to book this motel when on business in Tucson. It's an older motel but very clean and comfortable and the staff is AWESOME! You even get a freshly baked-hot-out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookie during check-in! My meeting was too early to enjoy their complimentary breakfast. I did visit the lounge the evening before. Nice place to unwind. No...

We stayed at the Royal Sun while on business in Tucson for the annual, amazing book festival. The hotel's chief selling point is its proximity to the University of Arizona campus, which is a long walk or short (5 min) bike/car ride away. Don't expect many amenities -- there isn't even an elevator for lugging your bags to the second...

Best Western Royal Sun is just blocks from UofA which makes it an excellent choice if you have business there. The area is pretty run down, has been for many many years, but that's Tucson for you. If you want new and fresh, stay in Oro Valley or Catalina Foothills. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was spacious...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in February 2016.

Although older, this motel has been reno'd a few years ago. Certainly clean, great value with the breakie and cocktail coupons. The location puts you right in the middle of Tucson locations. The restaurant on site has super service and the best choices for breakfast. My husband thought the bed needs to be replaced....perhaps the only consideration.
