“A true taste of the southwest.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the Adobe Rose. Marion and Jim were warm, accommodating and very helpful. The "beige breakfast" was amazing, and the conversation was even better.

Our room was warm, clean and well appointed, and we were very pleased with the setting. I found the squeaky wooden floors charming and homey. I'd recommend the experience to anyone looking for comfort, cleanliness and southwest charm.

Thank you for your kind comments. We love the Southwest and it is always good to know that we have captured a piece of it at the Adobe Rose. We also love letting our guests know the interesting places to see and great restaurants here in Tucson, many of which are within walking distance of the Inn. We look forward to your return and I promise to serve the beige breakfast while you are here!

What a great place to stay. We rented out the entire place for my son"s graduation from U of A. We had time to all be together and just relax around the pool area. Marion and Jim are wonderful host. Would highly recommend the Adobe Rose Inn.

We're so pleased that you and your family enjoyed staying with us when you celebrated your son's graduation. How proud you must be of him! We enjoy hosting family events such a graduations, reunions, small weddings and birthdays. One delightful woman brought her entire family here for her 80th birthday and again for her 85th birthday. Thanks for letting us participate in the fun as hosts.

I spent some days at the Adobe Rose Inn and I had a wonderful time. It was in walking distance to campus and the owners are both very nice, open minds and make the best breakfast ever. The Adobe Rose Inn is a perfect place if you want to stay in an authentic place with awesome people and if you don't mind meeting and chatting with other guests during breakfast. I meet so many different and very interesting people in a short time and enjoyed that experience. If my way will ever bring me back to Tucson, there will be no other place for me where I would rather stay than the Adobe Rose Inn.

Green Features: They have a beautiful Sky-light in the living room and provide excellent local or home-made food.

We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed conversing with some of the interesting people who stay here. We usually have a a great mix of people from all over the world -academics, renowned astronomers, those exploring the magic of the Southwest and, on occasion, movie directors, poets, baseball players and authors - to name a few. We make a sincere effort to purchase fresh, locally grown produce to serve at breakfast each morning. Thanks for appreciating that.

My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our 5 night stay at the Adobe Rose Inn! Marion and Jim were so welcoming and gracious that it seemed that we were visiting friends in their home. The breakfasts were delicious, and the property itself was very comfortable. We stayed in the Rincon Room, one of the smaller rooms, but it was totally adequate since we were basically only there to sleep and shower. We're already planning a return trip, and I already know which room I'd like to try next!

Room Tip: Always say yes to the scones at breakfast--you won't regret it! If you want a little more priva...

Green Features: Thoughtful! There were no plastic or paper utensils, for example, and there was adequate place for rehanging towels for reuse. Also, the system for watering the landscaping seemed very efficient--something so important for that desert environment.

We'll be delighted to add you to our list of return visitors. The Inn has rooms of varying sizes and, as you know, all have private baths. Half of our rooms are not attached to the main house and have private entrances. Many of our guests choose the room in which you stayed because they like to smell breakfast being prepared. We're curious as to which room you will choose next. We make a sincere effort to be as green as possible. Thanks for appreciating our efforts.

This charming BNB is in a wonderful location, close to the U, restaurants, and in an architecturally rich neighborhood which we enjoyed in our walks. Marion and Jim were very helpful in pointing us to selection of restaurants - with a map to find our way. Everything was made easy, including giving us fresh oranges, grapefruit and a styrofoam cooler to use in our travels.

Green Features: They have highest standards for environmentally-friendly practices.

We're glad that you enjoyed our historic neighborhood as much as we do and we are happy that our maps to local restaurants ware helpful. We only recommend independent restaurants that consistently offer incredible food and impeccable service. Luckily there are many such places of all price ranges nearby the Inn. The local citrus is delicious and we were happy to tuck a few in your cooler when you left.

We couldn't have been happier with our time at the Adobe Rose. Jim and Marion were most welcoming and helpful-- even let me take a pre-season dip in the pool! Breakfasts were delicious and the location in the Sam Hughes historic district was perfect for us. Our room was just outside the dining room but that didn't present any problems. The house was beautifully decorated with many unique southwestern touches. All in all it was the ideal spot for our first few nights in Arizona.

Green Features: Green all the way and we really appreciated that. We were encouraged to use sheets and towels for more than a day which makes so much sense.

We are delighted that we were able to provide a great introduction to Arizona for you. Tucson is a diverse and amazing place and we love to show it off. Although we are located in central Tucson, we are only 30 minutes or so from the majority of attractions in the area. We enjoy having guests like you who are from Western MA. You brought back memories of many pleasant times spent in that area.

We have been going to the Adobe Rose for over 5 years. We are regulars and now more like family! The rooms are cozy and very comfortable. The breakfast is delicious. If you have dietary restrictions, no need to worry. You will be taken care of! Marion and Jim are incredibly wonderful, caring and customer oriented. The pool is quite lovely in the summer heat. It is walking distance to campus and restaurants. It is very close to downtown. Starting in July, you can take the new train system to downtown from the campus. It is also a great neighborhood for walking and biking.

We are so delighted that you are among our returning guests! We do respect everyone's diet and firmly believe that good food creates good conversation and a great atmosphere. I enjoy the challenge of finding tasty recipes like the banana chocolate chip vegan muffins I serve. Non-vegans have asked me for the recipe which I do share. We also enjoy our location and know that we will see during football season as we are a short walk to the stadium.
