    Excellent stay!

    Wonderful Stay
    It was a wonderful stay. We were only going to stay one night, but ended up staying two. The room was quite spacious and very quiet, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The included breakfast was also very good. It was made to order, so it was fresh and hot. We would absolutely stay here again and would reccomend.

    Exceptional 10.0
    All was wonderful with the exception of the young lady at front desk who displayed a lackluster sense of customer service. Not rude but an entitled air about her.

    Very lovely hotel
    The hotel was an excellent find. The place was more like a resort than a hotel, i will probably go there every time i pass through Tucson. The only thing that i would complain about was the air conditioner couldnt get the room cold enough after a day that reached 90°

    Good 6.0
    Room had dirty paper plates when I checked in. Had to buy my own toilet paper because there was none. Had chairs on the patio the first night and there where moved to another room that night. Room didn’t look like the room that I chose on the picture.

    Quaint and beautiful hotel!
    Amazing boutique hotel! Place is very well kept, beautiful grounds and room. Cute, almost cottage style rooms. Huge room! Walls are concrete so noise level is almost non-existent!

    Cozy and peaceful!!
    I booked this room just to get away for the night and relax. It was exactly what i wanted. Very peaceful and serene property. Love the restaurant. Friendly and attentive staff. The only thing I wish they had was access to Netflix or streaming movies in the rooms. They did have a good selection of channels and HBO though. Highly recommend.
