This is a lovely place to stay and the staff is terrific. We may have stayed here five times while visiting family and have never had a bad experience. My sense is that the staff is treated well and they reflect that in the way service is provided...always warm and friendly. The restaurant is very nice even though I am not a fan of Southwest food. Lorena has a welcoming manner and will always try to adjust dishes to one's liking.

It lacks a gym but, given all its other good qualities, it becomes less of an issue.

Extremely comfortable extra large double queen room with adobe fireplace. Superior bedding. Original hard saltio flooring. Sparsley furnished w/ need to upgrade wear and tear. Terrific pool area and cozy spa. Modest restaurant. Great value and overall comfort and very polite service for family's or couples. Request second floor with view of Catalina Mountains.

At the Lodge on the Desert I stayed in a historic section of the hotel. The room was charming, amazingly spacious and spotlessly clean. All staff was friendly and courteous. Room features good in-room coffee with glass mugs. The restaurant, while pricey, had interesting choices and was of very good quality.

Room Tip: The historic rooms (mine was 153) are lovely, but surrounded by concrete walkways so the sound of rolling suitcases or passerbys talking to each other was common.

Lovely, pretty place. Comfortable room. We enjoyed staying there and would certainly return and recommend it. Nicer view on the second floor if you do not mind stairs. Good food at restaurant; service should be better and more pleasant.

Everyone in my party was so very pleased with this hotel! I had a surprise party for my mother's 90th birthday here, and the whole hotel staff was not only in on it, but they actively helped the surprise along, and enjoyed it immensely. The staff was very helpful when I called several times in advance to book reservations, when we arrived, the staff not only met my needs with the four rooms that I took, but they made sure that I was happy with the location, room arrangements, etc. The head manager, Frank, personally asked how everything was going each day, and made sure to personally help any request I had. Wow! What incredible service! The rooms were great (love those fireplaces!!), and the location was just right (close to downtown, but private and quiet). Not only would I personally stay here again, but the other 9 of us said that they would do the same!! Thank you, Lodge on the Desert, for making our stay comfortable, wonderful, and a vacation to remember!

Room Tip: We asked for the ground floor, away from the road. It was perfect!!
