Unexpectedly nice stay near downtown Tucson

We were a bit on alert after reading a bunch of negative reviews, so it was a pleasant surprise to enter the place and stay there. The room was spacious and very clean (including the bedclothes). It was well maintained by the cleaning personnel. All equipment has worked in the room - from TV to wi-fi to coffee-maker. The reception people were reasonably efficient. This motel does not have large parking but it was not too crowded and we used it to park our car.

There is a Kettle diner next to the Clarion, which is quite decent and open 24 hours.

I won't stay here again.

Hotel website says 3A approved-not listed by 3A. Hallways needed vacuuming & air conditioning both days. Ice machine top held with duct tape + bucket on floor. 2nd floor balcony door would not open. Moved across hall to noisy street side & tub was missing stopper. Next door complained TV was too loud-it wasn't. Rooms were pretty clean. Continental breakfast was OK. Sign outside priced rooms for $15/night less than hotel's or this website.

Disappointed

Exterior parking and landscape pitiful. One middle age couple drove in with us, looked around, and drove off. We paid you $60.00 for one night. A sign in front of the hotel said $45.99. I asked the desk to honor that rate and she sign the sign was a mistake and should have been removed. I paid $60. The next day the sign was still present @$45.99.

Not great but not bad either

This is definitely not a three star hotel. But I didn't pay a lot so I can't complain too much. The room itself is large, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was pretty good. So not a bad place but not a three star.

Not too bad.

I asked the booking agency for two nonsmoking ground floor rooms but were given two rooms on the second floor and way down the hall from each other. Wouldn't you think you would book the two rooms next to each other unless asked to do otherwise? It sure would be logical to me. Also the air conditioner in Room 240 was so noisy it soulded like a freight train coming through every time it kicked in and it only kicked in a couple of minutes at a time. Just enought to scare you awake. There were missing light bulbs in both lamps on the tables. I know they were probably stolen by previous guests but that probably should be checked when the rooms are cleaned. Also there was a ladder just leaning against the wall in the hall. The people at the front desk and other staff were very nice but it would be nice if they all spoke English since this is the USA, right? Nice breakfast and the little gal working the breakfast room was right on the ball filling everything up. She did a nice job. I would probably stay there again but would certainly check out that air conditioner noise first. Beds were very comfortable.

Not Bad for the Price

Close to downtown, but due for some renovation. Nice hot tub. Pool is unheated and thus unusable in winter.

I won't be back!!!!!!!!!!

Repeat of last years experience "reservations for wrong night, but the staff took care of it. Rms 150 and 151. Bathroom in 150 is an abomination...big black holes in several areas of bathtub,,,grouting and tile mastic very-very bad and unsightly. Late & loud party outside of 151 prevented sleep 10-11 pm. Ask for wakeup call for Rm 150 at 4 am....did not call and result was late reporting for Tour de Tucson Sporting Event. 151 did get called about 15 min late. Overall maintenance of building-doors-halls says this is a skid row "DUMP"
