... at Old Town Artisans in downtown
Tucson, a collection of shops of art and crafts with a courtyard and restaurant
in the middle. We found a unique
restaurant just down the road from the rv park called Hot Rod Café. It has floor to ceiling windows overlooking a
garage that works on old cars and hot rods.
You can sit and have lunch and watch them restoring cars.
... Museumn the morning. It was cold and a bit blustery, and a few showers! It was an amazing experience. We took a guided tour of the primary inside hanger, and the female guide was very informative. We were particularly interested in a large jet-like sleek aircraft called the SR -71 Blackbird spy plane ( in service in 1965). It was originally called RS-71, but when the airforce brass presented it to President Johnson, he kept ...
... had crept halfway across now. And stepping out of the car was awful! We checked in as quickly as possible and set about unloading the car and cranking up the air-con in the room, the big comfy awesome room! Wow! What a nice place we had, complete with it's own private little balcony! Of course we didn't make any use of the balcony until the sun had gone down, but despite being in the desert, the temperature didn't drop as much as we would ...
... The desert is not a desert. Thanks to the Colorado and other rivers, huge fields of green and brown produce vegetables, cereals, fruit, cotton and a high quality durum wheat beloved by pasta makers. Cattle fattening farms make use of the hay and other byproducts. And East towards Gila Bend one crosses a huge aluminium farm with rows of shiny concave reflecting surfaces 12 feet tall stretching North as far ...
... the planned experiments because they were so busy working to raise their food and survive. The original group was four men and four women. Two couples got married after the two year confinement. The Biosphere 2 is now owned by the University of Arizona and is used by students for research projects but none of them live inside the facility any more.
The tour was very interesting and we were glad we took the time to stop there....now back towards Apache Junction.

Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Inn & Suites Tucson
First of all I must say that the Country Inn and Suites are the lowest priced property in this area, if you book online and pay in advance the price is $66 a night. Indeed the rooms are small, the walls thin, and the property difficult to negociate, as one reviewer put it, as if it were designed by MC Ecsher, but it is overall a very nice place to stay!
Great place to stay!!
Don't pass up a chance to stay here. Fron the wonderful reception from the front desk to the warm cookies offered to you when you leave the front desk to the frree USA newspaper at check out. The heated spa was large and clean as was the heated pool. The fitness center was clean and very nice. The room was very clean and well appointed. They even a "happy hour" from 6-7 every nigh. Nice touch!! Please don not miss the breakfast before you leave. Will be back!
I had to visit Tucson for a conference and I have peaked this hotel to extend my visit in Tucson for 3 more days. It was an excellent choice and people were more than friendly to me. The hotel was great and was given a great room with pool and jacuzzi view. I had two TV sets which I really didn't need to, a small living room and kitchen equipped with fridge, microwave oven and coffee maker (plus the coffee).
A good choice
Really nice hot tub/pool area, free cookout on Tuesdays, good comfortable suites with cooking facilities..easy parking...no complaints here...
I was a little concerned after reading some of the reviews of this hotel, but decided to give the hotel a shot because of it's location. I was pleasantly surprised by my experience. I actually ended up calling about 4 am to check on the price of rooms and the young man who answered the phone was extremely helpful and VERY pleasant. I arrived at midnight and the front desk staff was extremely helpful and check-in was a breeze. I was staying with my mother who is in a wheelchair and the young man opened the door for us and even told us the most convenient place to park. We requested a non-handicap room because we needed two beds and were told that even though they were almost 100% full if we needed to have a handicap room they would make the necessary arrangements. Our room was extremely clean and very cute. The room was extremely spacious. Even though it was not a handicap room there was plenty of room to navigate the wheelchair through it. The water pressure was AWESOME!! I have never had such good shower pressure anywhere else in Tucson. We were unable to check out the pool because of the rain. The air conditioner cooled down the room in approximately 15 minutes, which is vital when it is 110+ degrees outside. We did not check out the breakfast because neither one of us wanted to get out of bed. We were so comfortable! We never heard any traffic from Oracle and we were on the side corner parallel with Oracle Road. We never even heard our neighbors or the people above us. When we went to checkout of Sunday there were a couple of people checking out at the same time, but we were assisted right away and checkout took less than 3 minutes. This was a wonderful experience.
The Country Inns & Suites at 7411 North Aracle Road, Tucson, AZ was simply awsom. My fiance and myself stayed there for 6 nights and loved every minute of it. Our room was very spacious, clean and adorable. Our room was equipped with a mini kitchen and sitting area with TV and telephone in one room and bedroom with king bed and bath area in another room, also with TV and telephone. The hotel atmosphere was lovely. The pool area was always clean and neat. The staff were very nice and professional especially the desk manager who was very helpful with giving us suggestion on fine dining in the area, site seeing, etc. Even the price was reasonable. We would definately stay there again the next time we are in the Tucson area. ONE GREAT HOTEL!!!!!
We stayed there for a weekend in mid-January this year. Here is the breakdown:
A hotel designed by M. C. Escher?
A decent mid-price hotel, but the "suites" are very small. The layout is strange, with endless ramps and stairways; it feels like the place was designed by M. C. Escher! Rooms on the front, facing Oracle Road, are a bit noisy. Ask for a room in back, overlooking Tohono Chul Park. The staff is friendly; the free Continental breakfast is OK.
When we stayed there (January 2005) the rooms had been recently repainted, and everything was bright and cheerful. However, the beds are not very comfortable: horrible foam-rubber pillows, cheap bedspreads. Also, they do not change the sheets unless you remember to put a card on the pillow asking them to do so! This is not cool! They should change the sheets automatically unless you specifically tell them it's OK not to change them!
Country Inns and Suites by Carlson on Oracle
On a recent trip to Tucson we stayed at Country Inns and Suites by Carlson on North Oracle. This facility exceeded our expectations in many areas, the grounds are very well kept with flowering cactus and trees, our suite was spacious, clean and modern, with a full kitchen, the included continental breakfast surpassed any other we have ever had, the pool area is like an oasis and includes a putting green and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed for five days and will return to this facility on future trips to Tucson.
