I did not get the room I booked on Orbitz.

Absolutely love this property located in a nice neighborhood in Tucson. We got married here 20 years ago and the place just keeps getting better! Be sure to try out Locale (food and coffee house just a short walk away) and the Tucson Botanical Gardens!

Staff was wonderful and the place is gorgeous

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Everything we needed was on property.

When we checked in and out the staff were very friendly. The room was clean the only thing I didn't like was the smell in the room.

The property was charming and comfortable. Waiting in front of the hotel for rides were not as comfortable since there are no benches or seats provided.

Grounds were well manicured and staff was friendly and helpful. Room cleaniness, especially the bathroom, needs to be improved.

People working there were super friendly and the entire property was very cute.

We love the pool/Jacuzzi and the breakfast everyday!

The pipes in the bathroom made wheezing sound on and off making it difficult to relax in the room.

The property was beautiful and tranquil. Everyone was pleasant. Our only glitch was the included breakfast. Service was chaotic and very slow but the food was pleasant. At dinner, service was much smoother and more timely but dinner was not included.

It was clean and friendly

Very nice. A little outdated

Great hotel. Reasonable price and gives you the true Arizona experience and feeling. Room was huge and loved the fireplace. The included breakfast was so great. The grounds were very pretty and well maintained!

Delicious breakfast, charming atmosphere, private casita

Pros: Great location, lovely large rooms, terrific staff. Good restaurant for creativity. The so-so: Breakfast: good coffee. Two choices, medium quality but not bad. The downside: the pool is lovely but small, and boxed in by the buildings so it has no views. I go to Tucson for the views! Likewise, the rooms on the first floor have no views at all. Mine had a sliding door only, no other windows, and the door accessed a tiny courtyard where I could enjoy tall Adobe walls and monsoon bugs biting me, but I wouldn’t exactly leave the door open for fresh air. All in all it’s a nice property but not my favorite.

Loved how clean it was.
