Great Customer Sevice

The Front Desk Shayna did a great job of providing Customer Service and was very accommodating. The rooms were very spacious, and clean. We had a balcony over looking the pool and mountain range. Fantastic Scenery. Overall great stay. We have stayed at several locations in the area. This was the best by far. Not very far at all from The University of Arizona!

Stayed here for work.

The hotel is far away from downtown Tucson and any other attractions. You will need a car to get around. As, for the room it was clean and spacious. The wifi was strong and fast. The complimentary breakfast was just ok. I had a balcony which was nice but useless since it faced east, toward the airport. (I would've enjoyed if it was a nicer view) other people pointed out ask for a west view. The airport noise was a bit bothersome the first night but I got used to it. The only amenities where the pool, gym and casino. So, it did get boring after a few days (I don't gamble) Overall,it was a good experience if you want a quiet getaway with a little gambling and pool time this hotel is for you. If you want more than that you will be disappointed.

No pool side service. No bar services near pool. Were were looking for a resort style stay as they advertise. But you can definatley tell they want you in the casino . No immenities other than the casino which got boring. However, the room was great. Good price. I would stay there again but only one night due to boredom

NO pack N plays/cribs for little ones

The hotel was nice and clean. The rooms were as described... However, I was very disappointed that they don't offer any accommodations for little ones. No pack N play or crib. With that said, I slept with 3 yr old and 6 mo old in my bed. Definitely wasn't my idea of a good nights sleep after a long day of packing/moving/cleaning house to relocate to our new home.
