Historical Traveler Reviews Adobe Rose Inn Tucson
A Home (Far) Away From Home
It's hard to say which we enjoyed more: the beautiful (and beautifully furnished and decorated) house, the lovely room (the "Sam Hughes"), the delicious breakfasts, the hospitality of the warm and friendly hosts, the interesting guests, the excellent service, the ideal location, or the reasonable prices. Wrapped up all together, it was a wonderful package. (Plus there's a lovely pool we didn't have time to swim in.) We've stayed elsewhere on our frequent visits to Tucson, but now that we've discovered the Adobe Rose, that's where we'll go from now on (if we can get a room; it's a very popular B&B, especially during the high season).
Friendly and Relaxing
We just got back from a 3 day stay at the Adobe Rose Inn in Tucson, Arizona and we just don't have enough superlatives to describe our stay. Jim and Marion were wonderful hosts, the food was delicious, the rooms were comfortable, the ambiance was friendly and relaxing, I could go on and on. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and wished that we could stay longer. It was hard to come back home after having been so pampered at the Adobe Rose. We will definitely stay there again, hopefully soon!
A beautiful rose in the desert
The rooms are beautifully decorated in southwest style and comfortable. Our room opened into a public sitting room with comfortable chairs and interesting reading material. A side door opened to the patio and swimming pool. A hot tub was also available near by and we slipped out each night for a relaxing soak before going to bed. What makes a stay at the Adobe Rose memorable, however, is the warm hospitality of Jim and Marion Hook. You are treated as though you are a guest in their home. From your first welcome on arrival until your departure no request goes unanswered. We were there three mornings and each breakfast was different and delicious. The inn is centrally located in the Sam Hughes District two blocks east of the University of Arizona campus within a short drive of several outstanding restaurants. Because of the proximity to the university the breakfast table may include anthropologists. atomic physicists. or political scientists from the Balkans, along with a mix of travellers from any area of North America or Europe. Even the sleepiest guest will find the conversation stimulating. We highly recommend the Adobe Rose
Best place to celebrate love!!!
Just this past weekend for Valentines Day my boyfriend and I had the opportunity to stay at the Adobe Rose in Tucson hosting is Marion and Jim Hook. We stayed in the Sam Hughs room complete with a adobe fire place and a huge beautifully tiled bathtub. As if the room wasn't full of character already, awaiting us where godiva chocolate hearts and a delicious bottle of champagne. The Adobe Rose also has a jacuizzi and pool, and soft fluffy robs in your room for afterwards. The outside area is like a secret garden with corridors, orange trees, private sitting areas, and stars abundant. I truly can't say enough good things, it is now Monday morning and we are still glowing :) Marion and Jim are so lovely, the baked oatmeal was fantastic, and converstation as well. Jim even gave us a tour and a bit of history about the place. Every room is unique with art tile and earthtones. Walking into the Adobe Rose is like walking into a hug. Thank you again Marion and Jim!!!!Deana & Jay :)
The Adobe Rose Inn is a GEM
The Adobe Rose Inn has wonderful accommodations, a great location, very nice hosts, and fabulous breakfasts -not to be missed. I have highly recommended this inn to all my friends!
We just stayed at the Adobe Rose Inn and the place is fantastic. Jim and Marion have made some great improvements and are continually looking for ways to make the stay more enjoyable. New murals, lights, ceiling fans, etc. were things that went up that made great improvements. Can't wait to go out there again!
Wonderful people& a beautiful place
Recently My husband and I had to stay for an extended period of time at the Inn. It became really "our home away from home". We had a great time. The place is very pretty and if you like funky old neighborhoods with some character, then this is the place for you. The new innkeepers, Jim and Marion Hook are very genuine people and truly enjoy running this Inn. The location is perfect if you have the need to be near the Medical center at U of A. The breakfasts are tasty and plentiful and there are many good restaurants to visit within the area.
Better than Tucson's 5 Star Resorts
Recently, we stayed at the Adobe Rose for an extended period of time.
We found that every aspect of our stay exceeded all of our expectations. Jim and Marianne, the new owners of the Adobe Rose, really make sure that everything is just right for their guests. A full breakfast is served every morning and Marianne gladly accomodates special requests including restricted diets, special times, etc. The pool and patio area are delightful for relaxing in the evening. The Inn's location is VERY convenient for the University of Arizona and some of Tucson's best shopping and dining areas. We will definitely recommend the Adobe Rose to friends and family visiting Tucson. We felt that the Adobe Rose was a much better choice than Tucson's large resorts.
This Rose is missing a few petals!
My wife and I stayed at the Adobe Rose Inn for three nights in April, 2003. We paid $127/night including taxes and breakfast each morning.
Overall, I would describe our experience as "mixed." First the good points: The location is great: a quiet neighborhood near the University. Our room (a suite, actually) was spacious. The breakfasts were good. Now the not-so-good: Our room was in the "auxiliary" building, around the corner from the main facility, and we were on the bottom floor. Above us were two men who arose early each morning and we heard every step they made and every word they spoke. Soundproofing was non-existent! Maintenance was poor: The room was dusty, the garbage disposal in the kitchenette was broken, several light bulbs were out.
The doors on the kitchen cabinets did not close properly, remaining ajar at all times.A small closet near the front door was open to the outside hallway, making it possible for someone to enter the room through the closet! While the room did have a phone, it was not connected to a central switchboard, so there was no way of knowing if you'd gotten a message while you were out. The breakfasts were good, but the dining room was too small to accommodate the full number of guests. We wound up eating in the kitchen one morning. Not the world's worst hotel, but it needs work. Perhaps if we'd been in another room, with nobody overhead, we would have been happier.

As we drove across New Mexico on our way to Tucson, we saw an almost constant stream of billboards for "The Thing". None provided much information but they definitely hyped the 'mystery'. I checked out Wikipedia (mobile internet is our friend) and discovered that The Thing was a mummified woman and child in a glass topped coffin originally created for a '60s era sideshow. We were due for a stop and it was only going to be $1 so we exited the highway to be ...

Almost immediately, Casey spies a most unusual creature that we research and learn is the Abert's Squirrel (AKA tassel-eared squirrel).
