Great location, large, comfortable suites. Staff was very helpful in moving us to a new room that was not handicapped access. Decent continental breakfast. Close to variety of restaurants and river walk.

Walk to the paved, laned, Riverwalk (sans water during our visit) restaurants, and shops. Great views in the Catalina Foothills. The Windmill is impeccably clean with spacious suites. The room was comfortable in temp, amenities offered & bedding. There are a few buildings, many rooms, and some rooms allocated for travelers with pets. Sparkling spa & pool. Ample parking. Service outstanding. Minus one star b/c of (1) dated colors, fabrics, fixtures & appliances, (2) a bit of a chore to get here from the highway, and (3) really cheap TP.

I could tell from the photos that the hotel was dated. I don't know how they are able to find enough working, old-school CRT TVs to furnish every suite! That said, if you're not a TV fan, you might be very happy here. Although the hallways are dated, with VERY low ceilings, the rooms have higher ceilings that don't feel claustrophobic. The rooms are actually suites, and they are HUGE. The living room has a couch and coffee table and desk, there's a kitchen area (just a microwave, mini-fridge and coffeemaker with tiny sink--no dishes, utensils, etc.) and a large bathroom with two small sinks--one inside the bathroom and one between the bathroom and the bedroom. The bedroom is large, the bed was comfy, the windows were large. All in all, very, very comfortable. The heating/cooling unit had a fan that could be set to run constantly. Between the fan and the fact that I could close off the bedroom from the bathroom and living room, I never heard a thing from the hallways while I was trying to sleep. Nothing is more important to me than a good night's sleep, and even though this hotel was full, I got that every night of my three-night stay. I also loved the neighborhood: restaurants right there, a Trader Joe's very close, and fairly easy access to the UA campus. The hotel offers a free, hot breakfast and you can even ask to have them deliver a pared-down version to your room. I didn't take advantage of any of that, but it smelled good. A few other things that the hotel should update besides the TVs: 1) get hangers that don't fall apart the moment anyone tries to hang anything on them. 2) get larger wastepaper basket liner bags. The ones in the garbage cans were so tiny that if you dropped any garbage into them they'd immediately fall down into the bottom of the can in a heap. I spent more time picking garbage liners up off the bottom of the garbage cans and picking my fallen clothes off the closet floor than I did sleeping. Also note that the tub, while huge, is plastic. Everything was very clean, although if you sit down on the tub, you can observe a very small amount of mold on the underside of the horizontal surfaces in the plastic tub. Aside from these minor inconveniences, I had a wonderful, peaceful stay. My suite felt like home. I had a nice view to the pool area, which appeared to be deserted most of the time. Finally, the front desk staff were all very friendly. I have to travel to Tucson often on business, and will plan to stay here again, not only for the comfortable and peaceful room, but also for the friendly staff and the great pricing.

I used to stay at a different hotel for the gem shows, and found this to be much better in so may ways! I traveled solo, and found the neighborhood to be great! Loved that I could walk to dinner. The suite was immaculate! The decor is a little dated, but the bed super comfy! I felt like I was going home at the end of each day! Free breakfast, free wifi, excellent value!

Room Tip: I was in the main building, but it does not matter

Clean comfortable room. Hotel was well kept. We spent 2 nights here and were well pleased. The man who checked us in on Jan 27 was not overly friendly and seemed to be a little unorganized. We would stay here again if we are in the area. Road construction made it a little hard to get into and it is located in an odd place in a plaza but once you figure it out it is ok.

This is a quiet, well run hotel with spacious accommodations and the best beds. We have already returned once and are going to return again in the new future. We can't recommend this hotel enough. The kitchen features are a nice bonus although the breakfast is more than adequate and very satisfying. The front desk staff and the maintenance staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms have features to recommend them.

We visit for 3 weeks every year for Christmas and New Year and this was the best holiday ever with not a single mishap and lovely weather. Not many staff recognised from previous years but hugs from those we've come to think of as friends. This hotel has been taken over by Hilton and will soon be renamed Homewood Suites. I only hope the proposed refit will mean benefits to the guests in modernisation without too much of a price hike as we hope to return each year whilst we can afford to do so. Thanks to all the staff who made our visit so enjoyable.
