This motel is located at the bottom of a parcel of budget hotels directly off the southbound freeway ramp. But if you're coming up from the south, it may be a bit cumbersome to locate. In fact, you might pass it and have to double back from the Congress exit. My room was a large KIng. It had both a microwave and fridge; also a double sink. But when I checked the desk drawer, the Tucson area tourist guide that I found inside was from 2006! Another annoyance was that it took a day for me to get a light bulb for one of the room lamps. I think they located the bulb but forgot to notify me. One afternoon I came back and couldn't get the air/heater to start up. After fiddling around with it for a while, I discovered that the housekeeper had pulled the main cord, probably to vacuum. The breakfast bar actually ran out of coffee, cereal, and waffle mix. Moreover, they installed a new juice machine during the breakfast period, causing a significant delay of service. The next day, they changed the cereal dispensers during the same time frame. However, I observed that management was actively trying to refurbish the motel. There is a small exercise room, guest laundry, and outdoor pool area. Wi-fi is available. The lobby area is clean and has a couple of computers for guest use. They also get daily copies of the Wall Street Journal, but not the local paper.
They also have ample parking around the entire complex. The location is just south of downtown Tucson and the street at the exit ramp (22nd) goes straight east through Tucson at a decent traffic flow. There's also an adjoining restaurant and a 24/7 Waffle House across the way. Otherwise, for shops and restaurants, try downtown, west on 22nd, or around the University, including 4th Avenue. But don't overpay. This is not a classy part of town.
