A Parent visit on Broadway

The Staff was friendly and responsive to our needs. The room was clean and adequate. The hotel is close to UofA in what I would call the middle of the City North to South, on I-10. We had a small problem with the original room and were moved to another room immediately that was an upgrade. They were very nice and quick about it. Beds were comfortable and definitely worth the value.

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"

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.

By freeway

Not sure what it is conveniently located to except for the freeway and the Waffle House. U of A is within driving distance. Shopping is within driving distance. Convention Center is within driving distance. But so is Mexico. Nice view of A Mountain, so it might be a good place to watch the 4th of July fireworks. Nice spa. Some maintenance problems. Light bulb out in stairway. Had to change rooms because the toilet ran. Staff seemed nice about it.

Sleepless in Tucson

We arrived at about 10:30 pm,checked in...room looked fine and then the loud music started...continued to about 2am. Finally some sleep. The following day, we arrived back to the hotel and the beds were the way we left them...trash full, restroom dirty...last time we will stay there. I wouldn't recommend it to my mother-in-law.

A lot to be desired

There was mold in the bathroom and a general feeling of old and not so clean. The internet access was a joke. This was a very poor representation of this chain of hotels.

Hotel needs a good cleaning

Very disappointed with the cleanliness of the hotel. Cigarette butts and random debris on carpets in the hallways. The sheets were stained and there was a dead moth in the shower. We stayed at many hotels all over the state this trip and this was by far the dirtiest and most disappointing.
