Recent guest reviews

You are better off getting breakfast elsewhere. Unless you are to the breakfast before 9 you might do better than we did. We ended up finding are own. Others staying there were equally disappointed.....

The layout of the hotel. The size of the rooms. The breakfast were great. The WiFi was a bit slow.

Older property but very well kept. The grounds are nicely landscaped. Staff was nice. Room was clean and breakfast was good. The room/casita we stayed in was very spacious. We will be staying here next time we are in Tucson.

Private and quiet. Casita different, quaint but dated.

We had a very nice stay. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful.

Amazing service, very quiet place among the city a gem of the desert

Beautiful property, nice amenities, great breakfast and pool area.

Very pleasant staff. Very good restaurant and bar.

Free Breakfast and salt water pool and hot tub great. Nice grounds. Convenient location. We're used to timeshare trades and thus were surprised at complete lack of kitchen facility/utensils.

Lodge on the Desert far exceeded my expectations. This place is fantastic.

Great location, lovely grounds & landscape, restaurant is first rate.

Charming hotel, beautiful grounds, friendly staff, and an amazing value. We always stay here when we come to Tucson, and can't wait to go back. Highly recommended!

Gorgeous hotel with historical flavor - highly recommended

On the first and second day at your lodge the breakfast buffet were cold..eggs and potatoes. We ate cold cereal and fruit the remaining days of our visit. One evening we went to your restaurant to eat dinner. We had slow service (was not busy -only two other tables). Staff was not available so bar staff came by table to take order. I felt he could not be bothered with us. This was reported to front office staff. Other than these two occasions, lodge was beautiful and we enjoyed staying there.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant was clean and the food was fresh. Highly recommend this hotel.

We had some issues with our billing and all was taken care of by CRISSTINA. SHE IS WONDERFUL. Lucy & Matt Gadish
