We wanted more time with family and friends in Tucson. One more round of thinning out stuff we don't need, picking up a few things we do, and getting Bertha ready to head east. It's been great to have time with the family and long talks. Oh and Julie learned how to shoot a rifle and a hand gun including a bit of self defense lessons too. Colin said it' a bit like his EMT. Good skills to have but you hope you never have to use them.
... Still east but down a bit or right of my original plan. It's hot as hell in Arizona and we're only scheduled to arrive in Dallas tomorrow morning. So it's a long drive and I'm trying to avoid making eye contact or small talk with the tattoo'd ex con seated next to me. But again, I really didn't have the best bunch to choose from. So I will update again after my Dallas experience which has to include a Texan steak, duh! And a piece of meat would be nice too. Bye for now ...
I will end the blog in Tucson. The trailer is unpacked and we're settling in to Donna and Bob's house for the winter. We're definitely going to enjoy the weather here and getting outside without putting on long underwear, coats, and hats. I won't miss driving on ice and snow. Our plan right now is to stay until the end of March. The jury is still out as to whether or not we want to move out of Alaska. Maybe we will just be Snowbirds. Total miles driven since we left Anchorage: ...
... with yellow and red blooms and prickly pear cactus weighted with deep maroon fruit bring bright splotches of color to the otherwise brown and green landscape. We left the trolley at a point where we could easily descend to refreshing little wading pools fed by a single waterfall. Very surprising to see such fresh water and a flowing falls as almost every river and creek bed we crossed were bone dry. We shucked our shoes and socks and waded into the water. ...
... and a picnic lunch. We got brave and drove to the Transportation Museum in downtown Tucson. It wasn't open but we took a view pics just the same. Then on the way home we stopped at the new Casino Del Sol www.casinodelsol.com/ for a couple refreshments and try our luck at the Poker Slots. No big winnings but enough to cover the refreshments we had. All in all it was another full and fun day here in Tucson.

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Suites Tucson
We got this place on priceline. We were quite surprised at the size and the atmospheree. The place is quiet and relaxing. They have a very nice pool right in the center. They have high speed interenet in room that is really affordable (bring laptop with wireless card). They have a small fridge and coffee. I went in March when Tucson is high season- but got this place for a great price and were very pleased. Staff was great and helpful, very willing to help any situation. I reccomend this place, you can't go wrong.
Had a wonderful stay
We stayed here in the Fall of 2003 and they were in the midst of remodeling. The rooms were very comfortable and large and now with the new furnishings must really be nice. The pool area was one of the nicest I have seen. Our stay came with a complimentary breakfast which was great. Don't hesitate to stay here.
Nice place to stay
My husband and I stayed here April 26-28th. I had read the reviews and was a little hesitant. We got an upgraded room with a AAA discount. It was nice, but not normal Radisson quality. The pool was very clean and well kept. Lots of places to sit in the shade and under umbrellas. We ate at the Breeze Restaurant and like other Radisson restaurants, the service of the food was poor. Our waitress, Kim, was exceptionally cheerful which made it worth the wait. We have not had good luck with any Radisson restaurant. I would not hesitate to stay here again, but Tucson is just not one of our favorite places to visit, but I would recommend it over many of the other hotels there.
Not very nice
I had to go to Tucson on business and all the other hotels in the area were full, so I stayed at the Radisson. I had to park in the back of the hotel, so I had to walk forever to get to my room. Not great if you're a woman traveling alone. All the halls are exterior corridors, so I felt very vulnerable coming and going from my room. My experience in the restaurant was not much better. My room was very "used." It was in need of updating. I was told my room had just been renovated--most of it looked old to me. I don't believe I will return.
Very Nice remodelled hotel
I thought this was very nice for an older hotel; my husband and I are partial to new hotels, but got a bargain on this hotel on hotwire.com, and we were pleasantly surprised. It has a central courtyard with a very nice pool, and everything was immaculate (it looked like they emptied the ashtrays outside the elevators hourly!) Yes, the carpet was badly stained, but the furniture was new and the rooms were very spacious. And they had the best in room coffee I have ever had at a hotel. It may not look like much from the outside, but if you give it a chance you will probably enjoy your stay.
This might be a good fit
We stayed at the Radisson during Thanksgiving. I believe that DoubleTree had let the property slide after they had decided to sell it to Radisson. The pool was clean during our stay. Several of the buildings were vacant, as the furniture had been removed, and there were painters and carpenters buzzing around everywhere re-doing the rooms.We had a 2 room apartment with a coffee maker and a small refrigerator. The furniture was basic, and everything appeared to be clean. Some of the tiles in the bathroom were cracked, but not badly for a hotel of 'that age'. The bathrooms had 2 sinks and a separate tub and shower.We did not eat in the restaurant, as we were in Tucson to see relatives, but I did see a sign in the lobby that said 'Changes are in progress, and you will be pleased'.
Incredible value 11/14-16/03
After reading reviews here, was really hesitant. Our bid was accepted on priceline for this hotel, so off we went. Had absolutely no problems with this hotel. It's now the Radisson. A large section of the hotel was undergoing renovation. We heard absolutely nothing. No noise, construction hammers, nothing. Our room, suite, was large. Small refrigerator and microwave when you walk in with a desk and chair. Sofa sleeper in living area with television. Bedroom also had tv. Balcony off living room. Large bathroom, separate shower and bath. Very comfortable room. Solid 3*hotel. Not a lot of tv channels, only disney for kids, no nick or cartoon network. Large closet. Two sinks. Upgraded amenities. Saw some kids in the pool, but it seemed too cold for us.
Alexanders, restaurant on property, good food. Very nice staff.
Elevators all operational. Card key entrances for extra security. Would definitely stay here again.
Had a Great Time
We spent a week at the Doubletree and had a wonderful time. We had a poolside room and spent a great deal of time in both the pool and hot tub. The rooms were very clean and the service was above average. The kitchen area was very limited; but we weren't there to cook - so, it really didn't have any bearing on our stay. We look forward to staying there again.
Stayed here for 5 nights, our room faced the pool area with Alexanders Bistro across the way. Our first day there, we went to the pop machine, to find that all 6 of the machines that we tried were out of product, geez, we couldn't even get a bottle of water. They were empty for the lenghth of our stay. We ended up going to the gift shop to get one. After that we took a drive to the nearest Walmart, and purchased our own pop to keep in our room. Not to mention all the large stains on the carpet throughout the room. The cookies upon check in were the only thing that impressed me. Too bad we booked this place ahead of time for the 5 nights. It was very quiet !!
Come and see what the new Radisson Suites Tucson has to offer.
We stayed here for three nights. Our door faced the pool but there were no windows on that side of our suite. Our balcony was right over the restaurant roof and exhaust fan. We had to keep the doors closed and the air conditioning on. We felt very closed in.The pool was large, but was dirty and filled with leaves. Many of the (few) patio chairs were broken and the tables were dirty and sticky. It was obvious that they had never been wiped off.We had dinner in the restaurant one night. The mozzarella sticks were still frozen inside and they offered to recook the half eaten ones! The service was extrememly slow.We rented a movie one night that didn't work. We complained but were still charged full price. I also discovered that were charged for two phone calls (.84 ea) that we never made.We were very disappointed with our stay here.
