      Won't stay here again.

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Great Value

      from

      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.

      Keep Looking

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Fantastic Getaway

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Highly recommended

      from

      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.

      Cactii and Coyotes

      ... Arizona's largest cactus, the Saguaro, and something like 100 other species of cacti. Who knew there were so many kinds...?

      We had a chat to the volunteers who worked at the visitors centre and got some excellent local tips for our later travels through Arizona. As sunset approached we drove around in the 40 degree heat (Celsius) checking out some pretty weird plants in this crazy looking landscape! I don't know if we found the park's official largest cactus ...

      Yesterday we rolled into Tucson. It was finally, truly getting warmer. I thought that the AC service on Shorty had done the job, but not so. Bogart's Service Center in Las Cruces failed us. No cold air was coming from the dash. Tomorrow I'll call them and see what can be done from 150 miles away.

      We went to the first RV dealer and looked at several coaches. It looked like we could get ...

      ... Greg and I joined the casino club and in return received vouchers for the casino buffet worth $20 and $10 credits each. So we had a really good supper and then played the 1 cent slot machines. It was a lot of fun and we walked away with almost $28 more than when we walked into the casino.

      ... and great friends!

      In the morning Nancy and Dana planned on outing for us to Sabino Canyon, giving us a chance to learn a little about native plants and cactus. Kim and her little grandson, Brayden, joined us as we rode the trolley through the canyon. Saguaros, tall prickly giants, patiently grow for 60-70 years just to begin sprouting arms. Palo verde trees aptly named for "green stick" as they store chlorophyll in the bark and appear as green trees. ...
