45 stars I flew in on business from the northeast and arrived 3 hrs

before check-in I was given a room and was grateful Staff always polite, friendly and deferential Food excellent, not pricey and great value Room rate almost half what I paid a month prior in Florida as a “snowbird” Hotel only a year old – still sparkles If my stay was connected to the convention center, my rating would be 5 stars Why 45 instead of 5 stars? Well, the complex is built at the edge of downtown and you either get a great view of the modern downtown skyline on the “good” side – or a somewhat seedy view of the neighborhood next door (not the most uplifting if you want to impress a spouse or partner) But now that you know, go ahead and book it, request the downtown view and enjoy Tucson!


Everything about this hotel was great, from check in customer service, the room service was great and the bar was good The property was clean and the location was goodOur stay turned personal with the staff when they text message to make sure everything was good from day 1 to day 3 from Leonard and Javier

The valets were extremely helpful from checking in the young lady was great to checking outWe will definitely stay again!!!

RECOMMENDED! Amazing customer service and very welcoming staff I genuinely enjoyed this hotel’s cleanliness and its hospitality Food was absolutely delicious

We are here for the Valentines weekend trip 2022 and I’m glad I booked Worth it, DON’T CHEAP OUT FOLKS! This is worth your hard-earned dollars for its price We had Valentines day dinner on our last day and was absolutely blown away One of our best meals and foodie experiences as a couple Absolutely surreal how well they were able to complement the wine (Syrah) that we brought in from home with their own food Attentive staff, amazing server, and great balanced service [not too intrusive or too aloof] I’d stay here every time I visit Tucson if I can

Beautiful resort splashed up against the desert mountain rangeNext to a great hiking trail behind the tennis courtsFood and restaurant were blah and not resort quality

Since food quality was blah, we ate outside the resort every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinnerGoing out to enjoy the local food is the best experience Many great food choices for foodiesDrinks were goodSwimming pool and jacuzzi hot tub were awesome, every day and evening

El Conquistador Tucson, A Hilton ResortHotelPLACE DETAILSa week agoBecause this “resort” didn’t send me a survey or request feedback about my stay like most Hilton’s do, I will post my review hereThe resort is beautiful and looks like a lovely place to relax Unfortunately for me, that wasn’t why I booked a four day stay there

Coming from Pittsburgh, PA and never being to AZ before made it difficult to decide where to stay I chose this hotel/resort becauseit was the closest place I could find to where I needed to be to tend to a family crisis I would’ve chosen elsewhere if I knew that there was no way to park closer to my room I wish this was indicated on your website or that someone in the Reservations Dpt warned me, Because I was in Tuscon to help clean out my family member’s house, I returned to the hotel each evening with several heavy bags and binsto sort through which forced me to rely on bellhops every time I was coming or going I waited up to 45 minutes for a bellhop on oneoccasion and then at least 30 minutes for all the other times I’m pretty sure there was only one bellhop available per shift and thatone bellhop always had the only cart with them so I couldn’t do it myself I must say that all my interactions with the bellhops were pleasant, and they all apologized when I told them how long I had been waiting Because the bellhops were the only highlight during my stay, I then had the unexpected task of making sure I had enough cash on hand to give them a well-deserved tip ($30 in $1 bills) I need to add that there was one front desk associate (Jolleane) who offered to walk me to my room as it was late at night, and she knew I had safety concerns This offer was greatly appreciated

Joyce Donnelly

This hotel has beautiful views but you certainly cannot credit the staff for that This is just a hotel that happens to have a nice viewThere are no microwaves, which is extremely inconvenient

If 2 star hotels have microwaves and a free breakfast, I would expect a 4 star hotel to have that as well It really deterred me from spending any money at their over priced restaurant since that is clearly the motive in having no microwaves Luckily there are nice restaurants close byThe hot tubs were not very hot Felt like bath waterRoom service was sub par, I had to ask for full sized towels because they forgot to give me some No real cleaning was done, just a quick towel and garbage grab and they were goneAlso, do not expect to do your laundry here They charge you per item, not per pound You’re better off driving 15 minutes to a laundromat and doing your own laundry for less than $3 (Opposed to $450 per shirt and over $8 per pant, etc)Overall it really seems like I should have gotten a lot more bang for my buck here

Shelley Johnsen

This hotel is certainly top notch in customer service Ann at the front desk, the lady who services the breakfast and the female bartender in the evening were exceptional Everyone greeted us no matter who they were or what they were doing

The pool is large, the outdoor sitting area is fantastic and the view is incredible The suites are very adequate and clean They do allow pets The only bad experience we had was that a room a few doors down had 2 large dogs that howled all day while their owners were out of the room The restaurant has good food, large portions The free breakfast buffet has a huge selection We would stay again if in the area

Andra Pittman

Our stay was great! The suite was more than big enough We didn’t have too much interaction with housekeeping except for asking for towels, housekeeping is upon request but I can’t say enough about the front desk and the ppl that worked in the food area The restaurant area is great! Breakfast was as good as , if not better than most restaurants

Cooked to order eggs, pancakes, yum! It is free but I recommend tipping Everyone from the cooks, waitress and bartender share the tips and they completely earn those tips They also have a great happy hour from 5 to 7 that can be anything from bagged snacks to prepared in the kitchen small plates It was delicious and the bartender was great!

Gina Schrock

I walk with a cane, I called to see if my room had a walk in shower and if I could be close to the entrance or a elevator spoke with Allison who double checked on the shower and delivered everything was perfect had a great view of the pool and mountains, room immaculate! Breakfast was great many choices and healthy ones too! Service was great for breakfast I will definitely be back for we visit family who lives here and everything was great!

Jon Olson

Room and staff were fine Max, waiter at the lobby restaurant was superb- great attentive serviceOnly complaint I have for the hotel was something apparently beyond their control…but is also beyond annoying

There is a bar (Gentle Ben’s, I believe Don’t patronize it Maybe it can go out of business) not only has their music cranked to the max, but the bass is so loud you not only hear it but feel it in the rooms that are unfortunately located on that side – South side I think It is annoying to the nth degreeThe other problem with rooms on this side of the hotel is that 6:30 AM on the dot, every morning the trash trucks back up…to the accompaniment of piercing beep, beep, beeps, and then to the noise of banging steel and heavy chains do the deed with multiple dumpstersNot knowing what it was the first morning I was convinced that a truck had just delivered a load of steel pipes or girders and rolled them off the truck and dropped them on the street We got to enjoy that everysinglemorning Lovely way to wake up three hours before you intended to on a vacationWe stayed here last year in a different part of the hotel and had no issues We expect to stay here again next year, but only if not on this side of the building

Greg Valdez

This hotel is located very close to campus and other downtown attractions Parking is available for a fee and there is a valet The hotel had an atrium feel with large open spaces

Rooms are decorated in modern furnishings and the bed was very comfortable There is a coffee maker in the room It was very clean, nicely sized and everything worked The restaurant downstairs serves breakfast that was delicious There is no complimentary breakfast For a one night stay it was great and I would stay there again

JB L (Jessie)

I usually don’t post review but for Aries I will Aries helps with housekeeping and has been very attentive to details—brings extra tea bags as I left some on the counter, brings makeup remover when I have makeup on my counter, etc Overall, room is more spacious than a typical Marriott, open building layout, good first floor dining/lounging space

As a titanium member, I received great accommodations I will note one thing for anyone who will stay here (and unfortunately it’s out of Marriott’s control), you will likely get eat plugs in the room as neighboring building has loud music occasionally and trash truck comes around 5:20AM- 8:00 AM regularly

Ceanna Esquibel

My boyfriend and I stayed here for prom for 3 days and loved it! The room was very clean, and we enjoyed the free breakfast in the morning We got the executive suite and enjoyed how big the room was There was a balcony and it was very pretty to look at the city

I wish you could turn off the light on the balcony but other than that we enjoyed sitting up there Again very clean room which was a necessity, so I highly recommend

Joe Sandoval

Cons: Have stayed in larger rooms for the same price in the past, however the view of the mountains was incredibleWe saw the prices for breakfast and decided we could get more for our money driving to a restaurant near byPros:Arrived very very late

Kept the front desk posted of my late arrivalShannon was at the front desk upon my arrival Greeted me with a smile and a wonderful welcome Didn’t have a single problem checking in We stayed 4nights and enjoyed every single nightHotel and rooms were very cleanBeds very comfortableStaff very friendlyHad an issue with the beverage cooler in the room Eva immediately came to the rescue with a new fridge Would recommend to others for sureI will definitely stay here againThank you everyone for a comfortable stay


Much better than most other brands because they have fresh air in lobby instead of strong chemical fragrance and it’s beautiful atrium and public spaces Pool is one of the most peaceful spaces I’ve been Luckily the music isn’t too loud in public areas but it would be better I’d they just turned it off because it sounds like there is someone with a boom box at the pool and in the lobby which is not the best experience

We stayed here for two nights in February and wished we had booked a week! The Adobe Rose is a very beautiful, immaculate adobe styled bed and breakfast inn with gorgeous outdoor spaces including an in ground pool There was parking on and near the premises

The rooms were all well appointed, clean and very comfortable Tom and Bob were wonderful hosts Communication regarding the reservation, check in/out, breakfast menus and the like was excellent And as other guests have pointed out, the breakfasts were amazing!! It started with wonderful coffee (and juice if you wanted) Followed by a fruit platter, main course and then dessert This delicious meal lasted us all day The neighborhood was very quiet, quite charming as well as very conveniently located to the convention center, the university, the botanical gardens, zoo, etc We will definitely stay here the next time we visit Tucson I am very grateful we were able to stay at this wonderful Inn!

Catherine Gallagher

A lovely get-away location for visiting Tucson The central courtyard is a beautiful oasis with plants and birds to make one feel totally relaxed Lots of tables to sit at outdoors

Indoors, there is a wonderful common area with a fireplace And the breakfast is divine The proprietor Tom made accommodations to my vegan boyfriend to ensure he had a beautiful breakfast to enjoy Wonderful food and great central location to visit many sites in Tucson!

Barbara MacLeod

I LOVED my two nights at the Adobe Rose Inn I visited Tucson for a quick professional appointment and was so glad that I had done my research to find a restorative, beautiful spot in a quiet neighborhood Everything was fantastic – I reserved the king room with the deep tub and was glad I did

Terry was so welcoming and cooked up two incredible breakfasts The flowers were in bloom, the pool was a lovely respite and I can’t say enough good things about my stay

Selfishly, I almost don’t want to write this review because I want to keep this beautiful gem all to myself! The property is absolutely dreamy with gorgeous plants and southwestern architecture and decor It was the perfect backdrop for the relaxing getaway that I needed Everything, from the grounds, to the pools, to my room, were all very clean

The staff were the cherry on top of the sundae–warm, welcoming, beyond helpful, and catered to burnt out people like myself Rhea, at the front desk, was so kind and friendly and helped me with almost everything I neededNow, lastly, but most importantly, I had THE BEST massage from David at The Spa I’m sure they are all wonderful, but if you need to melt away your aches and pains, he is the massage therapist to schedule with He was professional, listened to my needs, and removed a knot from my upper back that I thought would never go away, as multiple other massage therapists were unable to resolve the issue I also received a facial from Lois, which was hands down the best I have ever had My skin has not looked this refreshed in so long Thank you to everyone at this resort, from the cleaning staff to the owner, for such a beautiful and restorative experience I will definitely be returning

Benjamin Kastelic

This place is full of AZ history I highly recommend stopping by and saying Hi 👋 to Jill she was such a delight to talk to They have a restaurant open to the public

You can stay here the night at a great price too They have two pool and a hot tube Great food and drinks Walk the grounds and take a step back in history Weddings are done here too Great for the whole family

Ashleigh Weston

We were blessed enough to have our wedding here, and I cannot thank the catering and service team at Hacienda enough, including the events coordinator, Greta They were accommodating, included us in every step of the preparations, provided a fantastically picturesque setting, and brilliant food for our special dayWe stayed in the historic suite which was perfect for bridal prep time on the morning of, and we are beyond grateful to have had our special wedding day memories there

We’ll be back for the anniversary dinners for sure! Thank you Greta and HdS team!

Comfortable bed, quality materials in the room, plenty of swimming options including a swim up bar and large water slide Golf and tennis The breakfast was great! Staff was really friendly

Great views of the Catalina mountains Beautiful resortWhy is this not a 5 star review then? I’ve actually been in a 5 star hotel and there is quite a difference in quality and luxury Here are my critiques (minor gripes):The resort is very large and you’ll need to do quite a bit of walking to get to anywhere The pool area is in the middle; however, there is no direct path from the rooms to the pool This is the same with the dinning area Go from your room, to an elevator to the lobby, down two flights of stairs Need to leave to go anywhere in your car? Again, you’ll have to hike quite a ways to the parking lot from your room There was a tub in our room, but it was a single person tub Not exactly romantic if your plan is a romantic getaway

Krista Daggett

They are in the process of updating the rooms, the bed was a little too firm, the fridge in the room is way too small I hope they upgrade them!What a beautiful location! However be prepared for lots of walking, the resort is very spaced out and you can’t park anywhere near your room! The bellhop have lots of golf carts to shuttle everyone aroundWe were able to utilize the spa and enjoyed a couples massage, it was awesome! Nice facility

The pools are awesome, even had a guy playing music! Loved the waterfall, my husband loved the slideWe ate at both restaurants, good food Contigo was awesome! Highly recommended It was a great stay!

Justin Montgomery

The rooms were nice but honestly the beds weren’t queens and they were very uncomfortable Besides that it was great Service was on point

Everyone I encountered that worked there was great It is a bit pricey We stayed on the 4th of July so I don’t honestly know if we paid more or less than normal but my girl and her daughters had a blast The pols and slide are fun I’d definitely go back

From the moment we arrived to checkout, everything went so smoothly! I have only compliments for this wonderful hotel Yes it is 3 star hotel, but you honestly feel so much more luxurious than that with the gorgeous setting of hotel and views they offer! My partner and I loved the reception to welcome guests in the evening with two free drinks each and snacks The breakfast in the morning was amazing, from fresh made omelets to waffles and decent coffee, as well

The room itself was super clean, up to date with appliances/lighting fixtures, literally no complaints about anything in the room! Only compliments for embassy suites Highly recommend this location to anyone looking to get away! Also, it’s right off a busy street but you really can’t hear the traffic when you’re in the courtyard area Also, big and clean pool Will absolutely stay again in the future Thank you staff!

Helen Bonlie

We chose to stay on the far end (back) of the property, to avoid noise from the pool & restaurant/bar It was a great decision, as we heard NOTHING We also had great mountain views from the balcony without paying extra for them

I wouldn’t recommend staying so far away if you don’t want to walk a bit for breakfast or the pool thoughThe rooms are spacious & comfort, but they could use a little closer eye to detail when cleaning (carpets were a little dirty & there were cobwebs on the window) There was a musty smell in the room, perhaps most people don’t stay on the far end of the property? Our fridge wasn’t plugged turned on, but it did work once we got it on There was a burnt out light in the bathroom that made it darker than is ideal il, but not a huge deal The hotel seems to be older and while they’re updated it a bit, there are certainly places they could improve on, as the property is gorgeous & has so much potential!Breakfast was delicious & plentiful but the evening reception snacks were lacking The pool was fabulous & probably my family’s favorite partI would stay here again for sure, if just like to see the property held to a higher standard

Alan Heintzelman

I pick to stay at an Embassy Suites property for a little more space and for the cook to order breakfast and nightly reception This property did not disappoint – the rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast outstanding The rooms face into an open area that is lush with vegetation and includes a walkway, fire pit and swimming pool and it was very pleasant

There is plenty of easy parking access and the service was good everywhere we went The rooms are starting to show a little aging but it was very subtle and not an issue I would definitely consider staying here on a future stay

The service is okay excellent I cannot comment on a stay here but we did a spa day for $325 and I have to say the facilities are not up to par for these prices The sauna, cold pool, and hot tub whirl pools resembles something at an Orlando Hilton

The entire property is very old and I didn’t like the ambiance It definitely be kind to an older crowdI stayed at the Canyon Ranch Miami which no longer exists and it was very modern and beautifultotally different here The yoga studio was outdoors looking at the ocean I will never forget that experienceWe enjoyed the t pool for the ambiance and size Upon checking they did not clarify how to get snacks that come with our day spa, we starved until lunch then realized we could have went to the cafe at anytime Very disappointing to find out at the end of our day!Food was healthy and excellent and 5 star service, but I would never pay these prices for the facility

I’m writing this review both out of a sense of sadness, and as a warning to those who may be contemplating a visit to Canyon Ranch TucsonCanyon Ranch is a legendary name when it comes to destination spas and wellness resorts – for years, it’s been a hot spot for everyone from celebrities to first-time wellness-seekers to health aficionados, alike On a personal note, over the years, my mom and I enjoyed several mother-daughter weekend getaways to CR in Lenox, MA – and each experience was nothing short of amazing

With such fond memories of Canyon Ranch Lenox, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to visit CR Tucson for the first time with my husband It seemed only natural that the experience would be just as wonderful – if not better – in the place where it all beganSadly, I couldn’t have been more wrong From the moment we arrived, we were escorted to our bug-infested room with furniture so dusty we could write our names on it, and an AC unit which worked mildly, at best We’d been promised a room upgrade by “Reservations Consultant” Doug C, but alas, no such upgrade was honored at check in We were never really shown the property, or given any insider tips – and had it not been for my prior experiences at CR Lenox, we likely would’ve missed out on just about everything (eg pre-booking services and dinner, activities, etc)While our petite and dusty hotel room was uncomfortably reminiscent of that of a run-down Motel 6 – it was the poor service and food that really left us not only dissatisfied, but thoroughly disillusioned with the whole experience With few exceptions, the staff was unprofessional, unpleasant, and wholly inattentive Restaurant servers and kitchen staff frequently made mistakes in taking and executing orders – often presenting “flawed” food (eg a partially frozen peach tart) – but attempts to remedy the situation were virtually nil Rather, servers would just apologize for the error – and then scurry away, with no real fix I think I heard the phrase “I’m sorry” more often than “What would you like to order?”The meals, themselves, were quite disappointing, too CR had once been known for serving healthful, delicious meals – but this time, the food was unlike any CR cuisine I’d experienced before Not particularly healthful or tasty, the food was tolerable at best – and a disastrously-executed, nightly “serve yourself pasta bar” seemed to replace what was formerly a focus on seasonal, versatile fareThe rooms were cleaned with a lick and a promise – the same insects, dust spots, floor stains, and cobwebs that were present on our first night remained untouched throughout our stay With the exception of Brad in the Outdoor Sports Department, not a single employee checked in on us during our stay – it was as though they didn’t want to know, because they knew how flawed everything was Frankly, for the hefty five-star fee of ~$2000/night, it’s far from unreasonable to expect better, more attentive service – not to mention better lodging and foodSince our time at CR Tucson, my husband and I have pondered why Canyon Ranch would, in fact, make some of the choices they made – from their “chase us down if you want anything or need help” approach, to the serve yourself pasta bar at dinner, to the low-functioning AC units in the rooms, the desultory housekeeping, to the cheap plastic water bottles they’re still giving to guests, to the meager, largely overwhelmed and unhelpful staff – and it all comes back to this: it’s cheap Save a dime, and charge a dollar – it seems to be Canyon Ranch’s mottoI’m not sure if this disappointing experience is due to COVID, the pre-COVID ownership switch, or if there are other behind-the-scenes reasons for excusing such an unacceptable series of events Here’s what I do know, however – CR will only live off its former legacy for so long, and if guests experience what we “endured” during our recent stay, the day will not be long until the gates for CR are closed for good


Still lost and starving! I arrived at 11am today- sat by the pool alone (my bags were behind the desk and someone watched me impatiently as I desperately pawed through them looking for a swimsuit) finally I gave up and went swimming in my underwear I got antsy sitting at the pool, while teenagers fiddle with the treadmill, headed back to the club house- where a room became all of a sudden available It’s super far from everything and looks into someone’s camper

See photos I was starving and waited in line at the cafe, but my soul journey was starting, so I left the line and gave up on eating- got totally turned around looking for the right building (this place is a maze!) showed up crying Went back to the cafe for a big refreshing green juice, it was the size of an airplane cup So I did the 2 mile loop and saw that a stretching class was starting at 4:30, I arrived at 4:27 and she turned me away I asked if they were starting…? And no one welcomed me in So uncomfortable I just left instead of standing there awkwardly Wondering if I need to ask for a room change- the 200’s are super far from everything! I am so hungry and dinner isn’t for an hour- bring your own food!! I kind of just want to bail And go home, rather than feel really uncomfortable Staff is not as friendly as one would expect for a thousand dollars a night March 14, 2022

I 100% enjoyed my stay at The Graduate in Tucson The thing that stood out to me the most was the genuine kindness and prof of every person who works there Mike and Sandy checked us in and out l – I called them the dream team and my 7-year-old remarked, “Everyone here is SO nice

“The pool is super cool, I think Tucson’s only rooftop pool I felt pretty posh during my stay 🙂 The rooms are cute and most importantly SUPER CLEANWe will definitely be back! A perfect stay!

Casey Knight

Prior to stay I went through previous reviews and after reading I was skeptical but hoping for the best Unfortunately they were spot on Great hotel and location with easy access to explore the city

However, much of the staff seemed to be irritable and under the influences of substances in coffee and bar and restaurant/bar outlets We attempted to dine and enjoy the ambiance after check in but due to limited menu and lack of attention, we grabbed a drink then went off property The weather wasn’t ideal enough to utilize the pool, although the pool deck view is obstructed by high rise buildings The following morning we had hoped for a better experience but was even more disappointed The same “Manager” was working the coffee bar Service levels were very poor and the individual gave off odors from their night or even that morning, along with their mask was only covering their mouth This hotel has a lot of potential I just hope that upper management take the right steps to hire and replace some of the current staff

We only stayed one night but I wanted a clean room and a welcoming atmosphere after a long day of driving The resort delivered The room looked just like the picture and it was clean and relaxing

The thermostat was easy to use which made our stay comfortable The staff was so kind and welcoming They helped us figure out dinner and get settled The waitstaff was amazing and the food was delicious We spent a few hours at the grill and had a wonderful time We are planning to come back with our full family to enjoy the other accommodations Worth the price

Doug Wicks

It’s a nice resort, beautiful environs Reasonably priced, good facilities, very nice staff Like a lot of properties, I think it needs a little refresh after covid, seems like certain things have not been attended to as perhaps they would have if Wyndham was flush, and staffing was not an issue

Paths around the property need repaving Less trafficked areas of grounds had bits of litter Carpet fraying a bit at the junction w hard floor of the bathroom Mostly very nice but


We had stayed previously at the Loews Resort and had such an awful time there we decided to give this place a try, and I’m so incredibly happy we did The staff was so nice and our check in process was quick and easy, we booked through bookingcom and had no issues at all

Valet was present and able to help us to our room immeadiately and he was such a sweetheart The staff working along the property are incredibly knowledgeable about its history John Wayne and Dean Martin had stayed here before and the room they use to stay in is now the cutest gift shop The room service was amazing, everything was fresh and clean We tried all the deserts and couldn’t pick a favorite they were equally so wonderful in their own ways We walked around the gardens and the chefs garden was so amazing We saw so much wildlife including a snakes, cardinals, lizards, and lots of different species of butterflies We learned about a ghost that also roam the property and in the beginning of my stay I swear I had seen her standing in our bathroom checking on us We are huge paranormal fans so this was an out of this world stay Definitely coming back Thank you so much to everyone here!

Very uncomfortable It has a halfway house atmosphere The “residents” dominate the common areas

They made my wife and I feel we were infringing on them There were verbal conflicts between residents We have stayed here multiple times the past 2 years This will be our last We will advise our outstanding of state family to stay elsewhere Management has made their choice

Kris Conner

Ok, so before you judge this place by my post you have to understand a little about me I love skunky places They just have a little more character without any pretensions

Ok here we go first off this place is in a strip mall so make no bones about that It is clean, the beds are very comfy and the pool is good sized with a nice hot tub The laundry room is a plus! And there is a great continental breakfast that seems to be a dying commodity these days I love the hacienda styling in the courtyards Now the far side the hotel has partnered with a local rehabilitation center and does house some folks who are working to get clean So if this for you is an issue do be aware as the hotel does not just share this fact Otherwise 4 stars overall

Kelly Chin

35ish for me Room is mostly well appointed and maintained

Parking area doesn’t inspire confidence, but no mishaps Cold shower one of two mornings, moderate noise from outside and from walls that seem thinner than normal, and a tub drain plug that doesn’t actually fit the drain lowered my rating Breakfast spread is mostly fairly good, though the scrambled eggs were not

This is one of the best hotels that I’ve been at ever! The room was very clean, the linens were freshly washed and the pillows were so fluffy I wish I could’ve taken them with me Staff was polite and no bed bugs either I was offered complimentary continental breakfast, unfortunately couldn’t go due to time constraints but still a nice thing they offer

Our bathroom was extremely clean and the AC worked perfectly for the hot Arizona weather Overall a great stay! Would definitely stay again if I visit AZ another time ☺️

Ana Mendibles

First, I want apologize for my clumsiness spilling my coffee on our first morning, my family and I, all have been under a lot of stress with our AC broking down in our apartment But y’all were the most kindest staff, God Bless you all Very comfy stay I’m glad we stayed

Awesome hot breakfast, great variety, and filling Very clean room and bathroom Great lighting in room, not too dark or bright just right We felt very secure and safe that’s a big plus, because we’re three girls (mom and two daughters) and a dad; and he has to work in the early morning Our son was across from us I was happy for that Only one or four things to improve on are more towels, toilet paper, toilet is bit low and loose, also tub is bit slippery But overall Country Inn still gets an “A+”! We’re happy we pick Country Inn Thanks Guys and Gals you’re all the BEST!!!
