“Nice property, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2011

Spent 1 night here while traveling AZ, appears to be a fairly new property. Hotel staff were friendly and efficient, no issues with room either. Room was very large (a premium king with balcony). Separate shower and tub, view of desert from the tub, kinda unique. Small but very nice pool facility. Free wifi, comfortable bedding, flat screen, clean room. Nice casino, a bit smoky, but not too bad. Buffet was not too good the night we were there (friday night), it was a mexican food buffet. Mostly tacos, taco salads, tamales and soups. Food did not taste great and the appearance of the buffet was unappetizing, cost $9 per person. People who dined at their steak restaurant said it was good.
Easy access to I-10 and Tucson airport.

Room Tip: Book a Diamond Club rate online. if you dont have their Diamond Card, hit the casino first, get one...

Stayed for the weekend, and made reservations through their website. They have some good deals if you sign up for their casino card, which takes 5 minutes. Had a really nice kng room on the 4th floor. We've learned to stay on upper floors in any casino because there is always someone walking around regardless of the time. If you are a light sleeper, get a room far from the elevators, as this area is noisy, especially if there is a wedding or event going on. The guests seem to hang out and yak by the elevators. Room had a nice balconey and view, although the door was hard to open. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Room had a fridge, but no microwave. The air conditioner was way to noisy to leave on overnight. The property location is a bit cheesy, but the hotel, conference center and Casino are very nice and well decorated. The food options are adequate. There is a continental breakfast that has a lot of choices, but ends at 9:00, so if you want to sleep late, you'll need other options. Full Breakfast is limited to the food court in the casino, which is a little slow, but good quality food and several choices. The upper end steak house, which is actually in the casino, was very good and had many choices and a nice wine list. The hotel itself only has a coffee bar, the breakfast, and vending for food, but the casino is a short, indoor walk, and even though smoking is allowed in most of the casino, the air was not bad, even when it was really busy. There is a nice non-smoking area with a lot of gaming choices as well. We would go back anytime.

Room Tip: Upper floors away from the elevators are best.

We live in Tucson and occasionally stay at the local resorts and hotels.
We stayed in an Executive Suite and we were not disappointed. It was beautiful, spacious and well designed. The jacuzzi was one of the largest I've seen. The water temperature was just right. The rooms are removed from the main casino so there was no noise to disturb you. We had a choice of several on site places to eat and chose the Steakhouse for an early dinner. Again, we were impressed with the food and service.

I'm a local so I REALLY have NO excuse, just don't make the same mistake I did. We wanted to stay overnight after Ron White's performance recently and booked the hotel thinking it was at the same site as the Theatre venue... not so, it's 8 miles away at the OTHER Desert Diamond Casino. Thankfully they provided a shuttle, but we were hoping to just 'stumble' back to our room afterward. I totally missed any reference to this on the Website.
That all being said, the hotel was very nice, the steak house good and the room spacious, clean and comfortable. The A/C was a pretty noisy, though, and when the airport is in north flow you're going to have airliners taking off directly overhead. Fortunately, TUS is not a hugely busy airport.

I like this hotel and have stayed a couple of times. The rooms are nice, the beds are soft and the price is between $ 100-110. If you like to gamble great, but I enjoy the food and the room.

It is fairly new, and we stayed during the week one night so it only cost $80 or so. Very nice looking, clean casino and hotel. Nice rooms, clean, large and comfortable. A couple dinning options although we didnt eat at any of them as we were only there overnight. The pool area looked very nice although it was too cold to swim. Casino had a non-smoking area which was nice.

Girlz getaway golf and gambling trip was perfect except my friends gamble too much:) After a day of golf we settled into our very clean, quiet rooms at Desert Diamond that included breakfast. Girlz are members of the casino and as such get great discounts divided with roommate makes everything just perfect! We even got to sit outside and play cards by the pool before heading back home to husbands and house work :) Staff is always extremely friendly and helpful.
