Yawn Tucson

Would not recommend Sat, Sep 26, 2015
The Aloft facility was spartan and cold. The room had leaky and slippery shower and the floors were dirty. The bed was very comfortable. There were exposed electrical wires and water damaged walls. The light switches did not work.There was no complimentary breakfast and for the money there should have been. We won't be back.

Perfect game day getaway.

Would recommend Sun, Aug 31, 2014
If you are heading to a ball game at the University, there is no better hotel. All the amenities you could want and just blocks from the football stadium and basketball arena.

Dining

1702 is a great local pizza and beer joint just a couple blocks away. Pizza isn't quite Magpie's (what is?), but it is tasty. Tons of beer choices, including several local brews.

Just OK, but I won't be back.

Would not recommend Sun, Aug 17, 2014
Not ideal for the business traveler. Internet service is poor. I had trouble maintaining a Skype call. No dressers. There are some shelves in a closet you can use if you are tall. I had to continually ask for a liner for the ice bucket. Didn't like the elevators. There are musty, dark and illuminated by blacklights; the blacklights are cool if you are 12 years old, not 58. Outdoor pool is quite small.

We were going to stay at another location but then later found out that the room didn't have AC, unless you paid for an upgraded room. We stumbled across this hotel and happy we did. It was great!

Ok for a quick trip

Would recommend Mon, May 5, 2014
If you´re in town for shopping or business, this hotel is for you,. It has a great location, the bus stop is right in front of the hotel main door and has a lot of parking space if you arrive in one. I prefere to look for in town good food spots for every meal, but the hotel solves it if you are in a hurry or don´t mind just grabbing something for the road. I´m enjoy and have high cleanliness standards, so in this particular matter they could do so much better, but nothing to be scared of. It is a great price-value spot.

Dining

If you enjoy seafood, you just can´t miss the oysters/clams at Kingfishers. The venue is horrible and you don´t give a dime for it from the outside, but the food is outstanding. Also try the shrimps from the entrees, you´ll love them.
