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.

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.

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.

Disappointed

Chose because of convenience to St. Mary's Hospital in Tucson. Stains on 'bedspread' and chair. Hair in the bathtub. Trash on the ac/heating unit. Something sticky on the carpet. Hallways smelly and unkept. Only one waffle iron on Sunday made for a 20 minute wait. Furniture aged. Tv reception very fuzzy. Suspect area.

Great location if you're partiicpating in Tour De Tucson!

I came into town to participate in the Tour De Tucson Cycling event. This hotel is about 1.5 miles from the start line. The location makes getting to and from the start line extremely easy. There are many restaurants within a couple of miles downtown. However, the downtown area is currently under massive construction and parking was impossible so I ended up just ordering pizza to the room. So, if lame pizza isn't your thing - bring snacks! The room was comfortable and clean. The quality of the building is exactly what you're paying for - lackluster. The walls are EXTREMELY thin. I could hear the guy next to me as if he were in my own room. The people above sounded like they were bowling with loud techno music to boot. I called three times to complain and each time the desk was extremely gracious and helpful. In the morning there is a nice little breakfast available. If you're doing the event, many of us rode over from the hotel leaving our cars in the parking lot. A very nice perk as there is currently no parking downtown. Overall, for what I paid for the night, it was fine. If I did that event again, I'd stay there just for the location.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

With all the construction downtown, make SURE you know how to get to your restaurant or you'll drive around for hours.

Not Bad for the Price

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

Worked for me.

It was an overnight layover on a long journey to San Diego, CA from Pensacola, FL. Was very glad it was easy interstate access and had eating facility very close by.
