10/10 Exceptional

Clean, modern, stylish and comfy.
I only stayed one night but it was a great experience. Check in was quick and friendly. There is a pool, small bar and restaurant services in the main building, but I did not use them. It's obvious these are old motel rooms that has been renovated, but they did a fantastic job. Our room was extremely clean, stylish and comfortable. My bed was very comfy, loved the comforter too. The parking lot gate closes at 9pm, which is nice for added security. We chose a room in the back of the complex, so we had a view of the "A" mountain. Check out was nice too. I received an email with a link to check out. Easy and quick! It was a very clean, modern, stylish facility. I would recommend staying here and will consider it when I'm staying in Tucson again!

6/10 Good

Converted motel, best left to the party crowd.
pros: the decor chosen was great, and the staff customer service was great as well. Really friendly team working, and you can tell they were working hard to keep the grounds clean. Cons: this is not really a hotel for relaxation. We booked cause it was a great deal and had a pool, however it seems like they open the pool to the public on weekends (we saw a lot of people with wristbands). There was a kids birthday happening at one point. We ended up not using the pool as much cause it was hard to find a time when it wasn’t packed. The pool is small and seems like letting the public come to the pool might be best left to the bigger hotels so that guests can enjoy it. The second major con is that we couldn’t sleep. The walls are super thin so you can hear conversations in neighboring rooms, we had one quiet night out of four where our neighbor went to bed at a reasonable time. The rest of the nights there were people partying in the rooms, smoking and talking outside of our room, and the last night we had a group of kids next door that was laughing and screaming until 1am. We made several calls to the front desk, sometimes it worked to quiet people and were thankful for staff help but it just seems to attract a party crowd and that’s just not what we were hoping for. While staff were lovely, and there are a lot of nice touches, we will definitely choose another hotel that’s a bit more peaceful next time as it gave us a lot of anxiety.

Tuxon Hotel in Tucson
The hotel itself is very cute, easy check in, friendly staff. The bar and coffee station are right next to the pool and the bar has patio windows poolside. The rooms are nice. Comfortable bedding and pillows. Shower has plenty of shampoo and body wash available.

Great modern take on old Tucson motor lodge. Room was cozy, but very comfortable with great towels, comfy bed and lots of USB ports. I'd add some throw rugs for a bit more warmth since the vinyl plank floors are kinda drab (although I can see why they used them since people walk right from blacktop parking lot into the rooms).
