Breakfast in Texas, lunch in New Mexico and supper in Arizona Stopped in to tombstone, neat place, a little off season so not all open yet. Had fun at Big Nose Kate's Saloon. This morning we found out we were on the edge of hurricane Manuel, flash flood warnings for west Texas, we dodged major rain till noon, then we were good. One small shower, then cleared up and rode into the sunset into ...
We set the alarm for 5.45 and set off with kids sleeping still, a big no no, but hey it's the last journey - a four hour cruise into Phoenix airport to pick up the car....it seems like a long journey and we all want it to just end today. We pick up the car, me and the girls, I felt such a blonde when I couldn't start it only to discover it had a flat battery and had to be exchanged.... Then onto Cruise America to say goodbye to our home, what was meant to be four ...
... with salad and real veges (broccoli, cabbage, etc.) as well as a bowl of peas in pods and some of that shithouse Miso soup. Had a nice teriyaki chicken dish for my appetiser and a salmon fillet for my main so pretty healthy all in all. Unfortunately the good work may have been undone by the huge glass of Asahi Draught that accompanied my meal :) Back to the hotel to repack for my early start tomorrow. Need to catch the Amtrak train at 8.15am for my long journey to San Antonio, Texas. Over and ...
... today, within five miles, we had Rain, Snow, Sleet and Hail. For you Upper-middle-aged folks, you'll get it. If not, ask you mom. She'll know. ;0)
It will be cold tonight, in the lower forties, but we're armed with great grandma's quilt made from fleece. Her great-grandparents ranched in Wisconsin. Lynn inherited the quilt via her aunt June. It's warm and does the job for us. Thanks Granny!
Thank YOU for stopping by...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Suites at Sabino Canyon Tucson
This was probably a beautiful property at one time. The rooms are set around courtyards, the middle courtyard having a pool. It has a Spanish southwestern style with lovely tile and a nice lobby. However, the lobby is dim, and the property looks worn. The rooms need refurnishing badly. The free breakfast is good enough; the beds are comfortable; and it is very reasonably priced.
Great! Don't know what the others are complaining about!
Stayed here on new years, and my girlfriend and I just had a blast. It's difficult to qualify completely, but I thought that this was one of my best overall hotel stays. First off, the price was a steal. The hotel isn't near the highway, but it is very close to Sabino, and the scenery is great. The staff wasn't the most cooperative, but the overall look and feel of the hotel made up for it. Great breakfast for free, including waffles. There was also a fireplace in their wonderfully decorated lobby. The courtyard/pool area is also very romantic.
4star, old school AZ comfort at the COMFORT INN. The room is fanastic, evertything in the breakfast offer is above average. Excellent people on staff. The pool and hot tub are hot!
I would like to preface this review by stating that this COULD be the best Comfort Suites I have ever stayed in, which I will get into below. The property and lay-out are perfect with the 'hacienda' theme of the property...the court yards, spacious lobby and décor of the entire premises. The staff was pleasant and friendly and everything was clean and tidy. For the nightly price of a room (we paid $104 per night), I find these important enough to bring to you attention in hopes of your looking into the situations.
Hotel doesn't appear to be well maintained. In the first room we were assigned, the window fell off its track and into the room when I tried to raise it. In the second room, the window also was rickety and wouldn't stay up. both rooms faced onto a parking lot, and although on the highest (second floor) looked like their windows could be easily accessed from the outside. The rooms themselves were smelly and the place appeared near -abandoned at 8pm in the evening.
Stayed here Dec. 2004. Attracted by $60/night advertisement in the free Arizona Traveler Discount Guide. Although it was a non-smoking room, the room stunk of smoke (it seemed to be coming from underneath the door of the adjoining room). The thin comforter on the bed also stunk. After hearing a barking dog 3 rooms down for hours, I finally asked to be moved. The front desk clerk said the dog apparently belonged to a "long-term guest" (this motel also houses long-term stays). They moved me to a room upstairs in the back of the motel. Minutes after settling in, I heard a big bang. The wrought-iron gate that allows guests to enter/exit the facility was directly underneath my room. This gate was used all night long by what I suspect are the the transient "long-term guests". Checked out at 5:30 a.m. The front desk clerk was unable to process my transaction using cash due to a computer error. I had to use a credit card. I will never stay here again. This motel really needs to clean up their act.
We had a great stay at this hotel. Breakfast great, rooms very nice and the staff all very accomadating! Will always stay there while in Tucson!
Don't stay there
Well, as above the breakfast was terrible. If that were the only problem I could live with it. We had a kitchenette - with no dishes or utensils. The bed didn't have fitted sheets so you woke in the morning sleeping on bare mattress. The plugs in the bathroom didn't work - yes you had a hair dryer you just couldn't use it. The bathroom light was out. I called twice then went to the front desk to get it myself. Still didn't work. Had to shower in the dark. Called for maintenance the third time and they finally came the second day. The worst though - our toilet backed up and they had no one to fix it. I spent $100 to stay in a hotel where I had to get dressed and go find a public bathroom to use because the management of this hotel could not send anyone to fix it.
Free breakfast....you get what you pay for.....
We stayed here in late October 2003. We were very disappointed in the free breakfast too. Most everything was gone when we went to breakfast the first day, around 8:00 am, and the staff didn't really care to refill anything. We asked for sugar for the coffee and were told they didn't know where it was, and they obviously didn't care to ask anyone else where it might be. The hotel itself was ok, but don't expect to get a nice breakfast.
Don't Count on the Free Breakfast
The hotel itself is nice enough, but the free breakfast that was advertised we only got one of the three mornings we were there. The first day, breakfast was great. The second, the containers were there, but empty. On the third, even less was available and the people working the breakfast didn't seem to care or know where to get more of anything... eggs, cream & sugar for the coffee, or even dry cereal. It was very disappointing.
