Historical Traveler Reviews Sam Hughes Inn Tucson
Sam Hughes Inn, within walking distance of the University of Arizona, is a quiet, classy B&B in a quiet, historic neighborhood of Tucson. Proprietor Susan Banner not only has a good eye for southwestern decorating style but also prepares breakfasts that look as good as they taste. Two rooms have separate entrances from the beautiful walled patio and garden; all guests have access to a very comfortable "family" room. Since the U of A often lodges academic visitors at the Inn, breakfast conversations can be as stimulating as the food. We have twice stayed at Susan's inn, last week for five nights; and we've already talked with friends and relatives about joining us for a return visit next winter. When we've seen enough museums and parks for the day, we love walking around the neighborhood and admiring the spectrum of classic, livable houses. Where else can you walk on immaculate sidewalks that still bear the imprint "USA / WPA 1931" ?
Warm and authentic
Sam Hughes Inn is our home away from home. The ambience has authentic Southwestern decor but in a rich and old fashioned way (which we love)- stucco walls, wood beamed ceilings, chili peppers on the walls... the innkeeper is a fantastic cook, and the place is immaculate. Often you walk into a B & B and there is a funky odor- here the only smell is of the delicious cooking. The landscaping is lovely- we love the orange trees outside the bedroom window. We highly recommend this B & B after spending hours and hours researching the others- there is no other choice for us.
Wonderful Room, Hospitable Inn Keeper, Highly Recommended
We wish we could find such a nice place, for such a good price on all our travels. Susan, the Inn Keeper, clearly pays attention to small details and it shows.
Her rooms (we stayed in 2 different rooms) are very clean and nicely decorated. The beds were more comfortable than our bed is at home.
The location of the Inn in this historic neighborhood was interesting and provided easy access to all parts of the city. We felt safe and very much liked the neighborhood.
Susan was friendly and helpful. She spent lots of time answering our many questions. Her breakfasts were a real treat.
We would certainly return to this Inn and recommend it to friends and family.
Thank you Susan!
A Home Away From Home
We just returned from a wonderful stay at the Sam Hughes Inn in Tucson. The inn is truly a home away from home - very comfortable and welcoming. The innkeeper is a great cook, breakfasts are terrific - she could not be more helpful in providing info about the area - the gardens are beautiful and restful - and it is altogether a great place to stay. We highly recommend it!
A Remarkable Oasis
Spent a solitary Christmas holiday in Tucson, and thanks to the exceptional hospitality of Susan Banner (the Innkeeper here), I felt the warmth of the season each of my 5 days. The breakfasts she prepared were fabulous, always including homemade dishes, breads, salsas, etc. The Inn was quiet, comfortable, and superbly located for me to be a tourist without a rental car for a few days. This Inn is a reminder of how wonderful, and personal, a B&B can be; and the privacy afforded the guests exceeded my expectations. Highest recommendations!
A peaceful retreat
Tucson's "Sam Hughes Inn" is a peaceful, welcoming place to come back to at the end of the day. What a nice change from the hotel/motel chains! The Tombstone room where I stayed is its own little retreat at the back of the spacious yard, near a bubbling fountain and herb garden. It was absolutely private and quiet, with a very comfortable queen bed, cable TV, wireless internet, and amenities such as toiletries, slippers, hair dryer, and even bottled water in the fridge. The gourmet breakfasts prepared and served by host Susan were delicious, ample, and varied. Susan was a gracious and friendly host who thoroughly enjoys her guests and lovely inn. It is located in a historic Tucson neighborhood, tranquil and calm, with plenty of room for parking. I look forward to my next stay at this great inn!
Excellent place to stay
We spent 4 nights at Sam Hughes Inn and found it to be welcoming and a really pleasent experience.
We stayed in the Tombstone room which was adjacent to the house. It was very clean, excellent shower (bath robes supplied) and a very comfortable bed.
The traditional home-made breakfasts were delicious and different every day.
We were invited to make use of the sitting room, and the garden was wonderful plus very relaxing.
Our host was a mine of information, and so helpful even finding us info on the web about places we wished to visit.
If we return to Tucson, we would not hesitate staying at Sam Hughes Inn.
Serendipity in Tucson
I have stayed here three times, twice in January and again this May. The inn is beautifully decorated and landscaped, rooms comfortable, food excellent. The innkeeper is very congenial and helpful, knowledgeable about restaurants and fun places to visit or things to do. Easy to get to and easy to go anywhere from. Five stars!
Loved the Inn
We stayed for the weekend at Sam Hughes and loved the inn. We spent our time in the Tombstone cabin which is the only room detached from the main house. It was very private, decorated in rustic cowboy chic, and we enjoyed walking through the gorgeous gardens outside to get to our little hideaway. Tombstone has a large closet, queen bed, writing desk, wireless internet, small cable TV, bathroom with huge shower, small fridge, and fluffy bath robes. The gardens were perfect to relax in, with a lovely fountain in the middle and the sound of birds all around. Tombstone has it's own window air conditioner, which was an added convenience. The only negative to the room is that there is a small skylight above the bed. With the sun coming up at 5:30am each morning, there was no chance to sleep in. Susan, the innkeeper, was very friendly, and gave us great sightseeing recommendations. The main house has a large living room/seating area with a great selection of books. The website is very informative (----).
Loved Sam Hughes Inn
This is a great place to stay. Within a block to the university, safe neighborhood, very clean, decorated in southwestern style, innkeeper is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, the breakfast is the BEST you can get, rooms are very clean and comfortable. The property has a HUGE backyard that is totally landscaped with trees, cacti, flowers, a fountain, etc. Just beautiful to sit outside and relax. I would not hesitate to stay here again. You won't be disappointed.

... has developed a 2+ mile walking trail through Tucson. Armed with a map, my hat, a camera empty of batteries, a sundress and, of course, water and sunscreen, I set out on my walk. I jumped onto the loop trail within a block of our house, at the Wishing Shrine and Elysian Grove. There is a four-inch wide painted line on the sidewalk to follow the trail all around its perimeter.

... The lady across from me asks what I am doing in Tucson. I initially think I am in for a winner because she has all sorts of suggestions about what to do there. Then she tells me her daughter is off to Australia and has been there every year the last 3 years. She is 17 now. I think to myself that is very odd for the states and people who can afford to send their child abroad each year do not catch trains 3 days to get to LA like this lady. I should have picked up the ...
What a wonderful way to start the new year! We awoke early to find the desert covered with snow, calling us to come out and experience one of our favorite places in a brand new way. Catalina State Park at the foot of the Catalina Mountains has been one of our 'homes' for the past three years, and it's great to be here. We had seen in the weather forecast that snow might be possible so it was really cool when Kent looked outside late the night before to see the ...

On the way out of town, we stopped at the old graveyard, Boothill, where there were some really interesting graves. Many unknowns, but also many who ...
