No bang for my buck

There was a gem show going on so all the prices were jacked up. This was one of a few available rooms and there was just nothing there. Bathroom and shower were small, blankets had holes in them. Would not stay here again.

Stay Away

Upon checking in with tired and hungry children at 6 pm we were given a hotel room that was never cleaned nor made up. The staff didn't communicate that to the front desk. When asked for an extra pillow to accommodate my three children I was refused and then when we (4) four paying customers arrived at the alleged FREE Continental breakfast during the (2) two hour window there were NO Donuts, No Cereal and No Coffee.

Pretty Good

Check in was a breeze and manager was very friendly and helpful. Our room was on an upper floor which gave us a great view of the Catalinas. Was in a good location for us to travel to the beer festival. Room was clean though kinda old and funky but we liked it. Breakfast was marginal but had coffee and juice. A very good value for the price. Would definitely go again.

One Night Stay

The price was right but you get what you pay for. No tv remote. The air conditioner did not work, Dirty washcloth in the bathroom. Breakfast was 2 day old bagels and 3 dried out donuts form the day before. Convienent to downtown but rough part of town

Average hotel

This hotel is a good location if you want close to the downtown area without actually being in downtown. It is a comfortable hotel that offers a pool, nothing real special. It is definately not the most spacious, and I've seen worse. If you are looking for a cheap and decent place to stay in Tucson, this is your hotel.

Decent motel, bad neighborhood

A local helped me find the place. My goal, I told him, was to get the lowest price without getting mugged. He seemed to think that this place fit the bill. The neighborhood did appear a little sketchy, but I didn't have any problems. (Didn't have a car to worry about getting broken into, though.) Polite staff, free continental breakfast okay. Nothing special. A place to get a good night's sleep for $50 a night.

Nice room for the Price

Check in was a little delayed due to computer errors. room was nice, but few number of available electrial outlets. large fride, larger thatn most hotel rooms, A PLUS. Had to request an iron and ironing board, most hotels have them available in EVERY room. Ironing board was a SMALL compact travel ironing board, not easy to iron on. Overall, for the price that I paid, the hotel was MORE than adequate. Nice Comfortable Beds, althogh the sheets had cigarette burns an holes. And Hot showers.
