“Best B&B in Tucson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013

We highly recommend Catalina Park Inn. This is our second visit and we hope to return many more times. A delightful, beautifully appointed inn with large, comfortable rooms and excellent food. Located within walking distance to the university, shopping and downtown. Mark and Paul are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make their guests welcome. We hope to come back soon.

Mark opened the door to a beautiful, sparkling clean home. Our room was very comfortable and complete with all we needed. The 4 nights we stayed both Mark & Paul couldn't have been more helpful and insightful to our needs. Anytime there was talk of something going on in Tucson all the paperwork was in our hands before we knew we needed it. Both Paul and Mark are great hosts and Catalina Park Inn is one B&B that you can truly enjoy. Our time in Tucson went very quickly as there is so much to see and do. Breakfasts are delicious and the coffee cup is always filled.

Room Tip: Our stay was in the West Room. Great location with a comfortable,sunny balcony overlooking the sky...

Our second visit to this lovely B & B was like coming home to family. Paul and Mark are the quintessential hosts with a real affection for their city and its culture (we've grown very fond of the area ourselves), providing an endless menu of activities in and around Tucson. The inn itself is beautifully restored and decorated, with the most amazing cactus gardens all around the grounds. There are many areas to relax and enjoy the serenity and yet, it is very close to just about anything you might want to take in while visiting Tucson. Our bed was cozy and comfortable and there isn't an amenity missing that could have made our stay better! Breakfast is the best we've ever had at a B & B and we can't wait to visit again and perhaps enjoy a longer stay.

We recently visited friends in Tucson and stayed at the Catalina Park Inn.We have stayed there before and wholeheartedly give it our highest recommendation. The inn keepers, Mark & Paul, are the most gracious hosts and really make you feel as if you are a friend who has come to visit with them. The inn is exceptionally well maintained and the food is excellent.
The breakfast were a real taste treat, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The beds were so comfortable. We slept well and woke rested and ready for our day.
We have stayed in many B&B's, all around the world, and the Catalina Park Inn is, by far, the best B&B experience we have ever had. Mark & Paul have gone to great lengths to make sure all their guests are well fed, sleep comfortably on outstanding mattresses, and have everything they need to make their stay a relaxing and enjoyable one. I can't say enough good things about this B&B.
The renovations were well done, updating plumbing and wiring, yet maintaining the charm and character of the original structure. The gardens are beautifully landscaped and are a relaxing place to walk or read.
Thanks, guys, for sharing your wonderful home with us again. We'll be back soon.

Thanks for your glowing review! It was nice to see you again (after your last visit to Tucson in 2007.) Please don't wait another five years to return! But thank you so much for remembering us. It is always nice to see guests from the past. Our repeat clientele is like a large extended family. Some go way back to the early 1990's when we opened the inn. Our Best Wishes, Mark and Paul

My husband and I just spent 4 nights here. From the moment we called to make the reservation to the moment we left things could not have been better. The room we chose was lovely and had a huge patio--perfect for end of the day relaxing! The bathroom was big enough to be another bedroom! Breakfasts were delicious.... not an assortment of cold cereal and packaged muffins but freshly prepared and scrumptious. Mark and Paul are really perfect hosts. Able and willing to give good advice and delighted that you are enjoying the city they obviously love. Just about the only minor downside is related to staying in downtown Tucson.... you can hear the train at night (though it's a distant noise) if you sleep, as we do, with windows open.

Room Tip: Not a bad one in the lot!

After spending one night at the Hotel Congress for a wedding party -I moved to this warm & calming inn. I stayed in West Room and loved mornings on the balcony overlooking wonderful cactus garden. Unfortunately, due to a death in his family, I never met one of the owners-However, Paul was great host, cook and conversationalist! The location is very convenient to just about anything in Tucson-Loved the overall atmosphere and it was good to enjoy a B&B after being single again! Good to get over misconception that B&B's are just for couples! When I get back to Tucson-will definitely stay here again!

Thanks for taking the time to post a review Sonja. I really enjoyed our breakfast conversations.
I am glad you decided to try staying at an inn by yourself. We actually have a lot of single guests (male and female) who enjoy the homey feeling of an inn and meeting and talking with interesting fellow travelers at breakfast. Hope to see you again! If we make a trip down south we will definitely give you a call. Cheers, Paul.

The staff at the hotel was great. I booked them using booking.com. Eventhough I used an ouside sourse, they still contacted me by emal o inform me of the check in time and give me a number to call if we would arrive outside of the ceck in time. They were so helpful, they gave us lots of suggestions for dinner (a lot are included on their website). The Inn was within walking distance to the main area so it was a great location. The room was lovely and very comfortable. They cooked a wonderful homemade breakfast in the morning that got us ready for the day. The only thing I wish we would have done different was to stay an exra night so we could fully enjoy it!
