“Nice inexpensive base in Tucson”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

You won't do any better for the price! The staff was friendly and the exterior quite nice. The room was clean with updated furniture, bathroom and paint -- very nice. Frankly, we thought this hotel was superior to the Hilton Resort we stayed in while in Scottsdale.

If you are in Tucson, this hotel should make you happy. The two room suites are reasonably priced, have been recently remodeled and have all the bells and whistles we wanted. Rooms were very clean, the staff was always smiling and helpful and the included breakfast came from the attached restaurant where we ordered from a menu of about 10 choices. We also ate there for dinner and were very pleased - not only with our choices but with the prices, too. That staff was also fast and always pleasant. The hotel is located just a few easy blocks to downtown and the historical district. Two for 1 drinks at the lounge, free newspaper, and water always available at the front desk were some of the perks. The one down side would be the lack of sound proofing. One could sit on their veranda and use their cell and inside the room we could hear every word clearly. Also, Tucson has lots of trains! But the noise from the trains seem to stop at a decent hour and ear plugs come with the room if you need them. I recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Some or all of the suites have been remodeled. And they are located far away from the main street.

During my stay, I was pleased with the new arrangement and color of the hotel. I like the location of the Hotel. It gives me quit access to anywhere in Tucson because it is by the freeway. The lounge was a nice place to socialize. They had a dinner or sub-dinner special for every night, which I tried and enjoyed. In recent years, I have spent many night's at this Bestwestern Hotel and never had to complaint about the staff, and being by the U of A campus, no complaint’s.

Room Tip: No compliants about any rooms

I stayed here while attending a 2-day course at the university. I didn't want to stay at the hotel on campus due to the price but this one was nearby and very reasonably priced. The place looks fairly new and everything is in good condition. The AC keeps the room at a decent temperature as long as you turn the fan from "on" to "auto". Included with the room is a free breakfast at the restaurant across the driveway. It's nothing fancy but is a warm, freshly cooked meal of either eggs, pancakes, waffles, or some combination thereof. The restaurant also has a lounge which I didn't go to and never heard a noise from.

The only downsides (although my rating of 5 shows how minor I found them):
- The rooms are very dark. The only large window is out onto the outside patio/walkway and is under an overhang, so not much light gets in. Also, because it leads out into the walkway I wanted to keep the curtains closed
- It is a little bit loud, with the occasional noise from the road and a nearby train. I would say though that the road noise is similar to most other restaurants and the train is fairly infrequent.
- If going to the university, it is a bit of a walk, about 20 minutes until you reach the edge of campus (I'm not a slow walker)
- I didn't explored too much but it didn't look like there is much in the way of food around the hotel except for their own restaurant, certainly not any of the major chains.

If you like sleeping on a granite slab this is your place. To their credit t was a clean facility. There is a lot of noise at this property with trains, police, and traffic which is why they provide you earplugs.

Thank you for taking time to submit this review regarding your stay at our property. I apologize for not exceeding your expectations.

I am shocked to hear that our bed did not meet/exceed your expectations as they are less than a year old & we receive a lot of compliments on them. We purchased Sealy PosturePedic Pillow Top beds as they are one of best beds available in the market.

Once again, I sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused. Thank you for the business & we hope you will give us another opportunity serve you in future . . .

Went to Tucson for a quick get-away. We were looking for a place that was close to the nightlife and the University, and this place ticked both the boxes! The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, clean, and the beds are very comfy.
Upon check in, we were greeted VERY warmly by the two clerks on duty. We were late arrivals, so from past experiences in our travel we didn't really expect too much on the friendly side. BUT we were greeted with big smiles and lots of helpful advice, ranging from the best taxi companies to walking distances and routes. Also, we were each given two vouchers for free drinks in the bar. Nice! (But avoid karaoke night...yikes)
The attached restaurant is where morning breakfasts are served. It is pretty chaotic if you go towards the end of the time frame allotted. The servers do their best with grouchy travellers, but the food is good.
The location is great. Its a 15 minute walk to the nightlife district, and a 5 minute drive to the University.

Room Tip: Get a room by the pool.
