Historical Traveler Reviews Arizona Riverpark Inn Tucson
Won't stay here again.
Our first clue not to stay here was the front desk requirement that they make a copy of a drivers license for security purposes. Our room was on the first floor, courtyard side, near a security gate to the parking lot, which did not lock. There were people going in and out of the gate for most of the afternoon and evening, and some of them looked more like vagrants than hotel guests. We complained to the front desk but the lock was not repaired. We ate at the hotel restaurant, Brennigans, and the service was inept and the food was terrible. There was a large group at the next table complaining to a manager, who kept saying the kitchen was "in transition". The breakfast bar was pretty good, though. Our room was reasonably clean, but dingy and the security bar that goes across the sliding door was broken. I did not feel safe at this property. When we left the next morning there were police cars circling the parking lot. Next time I will pay more and stay somewhere away from the freeway. Also, the photos make the place look a lot nicer than it really is. The upside is that the staff was friendly and courteous overall.
No Class, but adequate
Check in left me with negative feeling about the hotel. The rooms were clean, but there was trash in the halls. Asked for a 4:30 a.m. wake-up call which had not arrived as we left for the airport at 5. Front desk personnel were not welcoming nor efficient. Rooms lacked class.
We had a memorable experience the last time we stayed here. We arrived in our dirty jeep, which was loaded with assorted camping gear, we were hot, dirty and sweaty after a week of camping and the staff treated us as though we had arrived in a limo. How wonderful it was to relax after a long hot shower in a nice clean room with a comfortable bed, not to mention not having to eat our own cooking. Since then we have become regulars and recommend the hotel to our friends.
Pool was not heated. Poor lighting outside and in room. Practically sits on the freeway. Grounds not as large or attractive as listed.
Affordable for business travelers
This hotel would be the best for business travelers, not much for vacationers. It was among the cheapest in the central Tucson. Each room has a fridge, a microwave, and high-speed internet connection. Quite functional. However, vacationers would be disappointed by the view from the room and the bathroom. It's not a luxurious place, but I think it's worth for the price.
Didn't want to leave. The staff was happy to help (especially Rogis in Bennigans). Beautiful grounds! The room was clean & roomy with all the conveniences of home. We loved the heated pool w/jacuzzi. Can't wait to come back next year for a longer stay. - Rob & Peggy of Long Island, NY.
Great place to stay
I enjoyed my stay here. The rooms are large, clean, well furnished. Our room was equipped with a microwave and refrigerator. The lobby is large and adjoins a Bennigans Tavern which is part of the hotel complex. The service was excellent, and our rate included a full breakfast. I will stay here again.
Simple, Comfortable, and great for dogs
The Riverpark Inn was the only thing I enjoyed about Tucson. The people who worked their were very polite, and nice. It wasn't overly fancy, but had everything to make a very enjoyable stay. There was construction being done but that wasn't a problem. The hotel was very quiet, pleasant, and fun with a heated pool, hot tub and a free breakfast at a great tavern and grill right on the Riverpark property. And everyone was so great with my dog, very easy going and friendly towards him. I was so glad. I would definatley stay there again.
Bad, Bad Experience
I booked a room from their own website which offered $59 for a standard room or $69 for "courtyard view". Took the upgrade, and upon arrival, found that a courtyard view included a backhoe, dump truck, and lot filled with dirt. In addition, found that our second floor sliding glass door opened up to nothing but a gate fencing it off-no balcony, so why they had a door, I don't know. Asked to be moved to a first floor room (which comes with a patio) on the other side of the courtyard that was not under construction. We were accommodated, but at checkout, found that my inlaws received the same type of room in the first place at a cheaper rate by booking over the phone, however, when I called before making reservations, was told that $69 was the cheapest rate (even though lesser rate was shown online). In general, front desk were thoroughly confused about what the rates were, and think a view of construction is considered an upgrade. Also very rude. Would have changed hotels if everyone else hadn't been booked.
An excellent and cheap place to stay $40 a room Sept 2004 - the best value for money on our trip to Arizona last year - with a superb breakfast and more than adequate facilities and polite helpful staff. The only crticism was that we could see it but not get to it - the directions could have been better - but once you know it's easy.

... I survived my first time on a western horse! In learning more about the horses it seems they are completely trained and disciplined. They know on a slow ride that they are not allowed to lope or they will be punished, so no matter how hard you kick your horse it will not go fast, or faster than its normal walking pace. They also know hand signals and follow the horse in front so when one stops they all do which helps to lessen any fear. Quite ...
