Hands down the BEST hotel in Tucson, Az for the price! We recently had the pleasure of staying here in a Casita style King Suite and WE loved everyday of it! The facility & grounds are styled of the Mexican cultures with rustic looks and warmth. We had a patio on our front & back porches. It is PET friendly so both our cat ????& turtle loved it too! Their breakfast is truly first class served daily with multiple hot menu items that are freshly made and some self served items. The restaurant and bar have daily specials that are both refreshing and cost appropriate. This hotel/resort has some of the 520's gorgeous sunset & sunrise views. ????The front desk staff greet you with smiles and genuinely good customer service. The house keeping staff do great work keeping the rooms and grounds clean and in order. Our family can truly recommend this hotel to all for a nice quality stay that recharges your batteries for your days! ???? Thank you to ALL staff here for making us feel welcomed, appreciated and valued....
My gf and i stayed 2 nights here. approx 140 a night, however this is not a resort. No central HVAC system in the rooms. Still using wall units. In July when the temp is 115 this is very important. Also they advertise a hot tub. Its a jacuzzi next to the pool. Which is also a small pool for so many rooms and they do not open unit 9:00 am which seems ridiculous in the summer. The rooms also have shower only, so do not expect to take a soothing bath. This is just an upgraded hotel advertising as a RESORT. Sorry La Posada. In addition the upgraded breakfast is below standards and one day there was bacon, but no sausage or potatoes, no pastries and the next day there was. This is very inconsistent and not resort style standards. Most likey we would not stay again. Many other properties in Tucson.
