Ramada Foothills Inn & Suites
Travel Blogs from Tucson
Tucson, Arizona seemed like an odd place to start exploring the USA... But here goes: SYD>LAX>PHX>TUC! 21 hours later, all the travelling was definitely catching up with me! Luckily Andrew showed up at the airport to meet me and did the responsible thing when looking after a jetlagged girlfriend: took me to the pub! …
Loved the hot tub...
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 ...
... wouldn't believe the computer they had!
Daddy's 70th was the best day of all. We went to a horse ranch to have lunch. We went downtown to a brand new Rum Bar for his birthday dinner. It was just a great day, celebrating a big birthday!
When we left the next day the energy changed. No one really wanted the great trip to end. It was a hard goodbye, and we missed each other immediately. Still do. Love you guys! Learn that technology! You can do it!
... experience, a contrast from the line dancing and rope act the nights before. The ranch is positioned as such in the desert there is little city light to obstruct the view of the night sky, and this was a lovely relaxed way to spend our last night; in the pitch black with all our new friends star gazing. :-) Each night we enjoyed a few beers and Margarita's with dinner and we really appreciate Sarah and Cally's present which made that possible! Very enjoyable fun evenings with new ...

We arrived well before checkin and were given a complimentary upgrade because the room we were going to have wasn't made up yet. The service was brilliant and the breakfast was amazing. Definitely recommend!

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Foothills Inn & Suites Tucson
Outdated but very clean
Very clean rooms,nice hotel. The rooms were a little outdated as were the bedspreads(stitching coming loose). I do not recomend toddlers staying here because there were cables or electrical wiring hanging from the ACs. I had to cover them up. Beds were very comfortable as were the rooms, lots of space.
We booked this hotel the week of our trip, and I was a little nervous that we would not get the 2 queen bed non-smoking suite that we had requested (one review we had read said they didn't get what they requested), but when we checked in after 9pm, the room was exactly what we had reserved. We traveled with 3 young children, including 2 year old twins, and the suite was perfect for us - the separate sleeping area helped accommodate different bedtimes. There was also a small refrigerator and microwave in the room which enabled us to bring and prepare food/sippy cups for our finicky toddlers. The room was clean and nicely-furnished; the only thing we needed was extra towels as only three were provided. Check-in, since we had made our reservations online, was quick and efficient, and the computers in the lobby available for guest use was a nice amenity. The breakfast buffet was more than enough, and there was enough variety to please every family member. Fresh fruit and yogurt, waffles, eggs, cereal bar, oatmeal, dry cereals, etc. Check-out was also quick and painless (always a plus when you're traveling with small children). The hotel was close to our destination and several kid-friendly attractions. The price was a good value, and it's not easy to find rooms that allow more than 4 people. We would definitely stay here again!
I recently spent three nights at this property that I located through Sidestep. My room was large and clean, the inn/grounds meticulously kept, and the front desk personnel professional, friendly, and polite. In addition, the continental breakfast was great, there was a happy hour each afternoon with free beer, wine, and snacks. Complimentary passes to a nearby fitness center were available. I got a super price through Sidestep and would certainly stay at this Ramada again.
My wife and I just returned home to Connecticut after a five night stay at the Ramada Foothills. We had a wonderful time, and we were extremely pleased with the accommodations,service and amenities. The grounds were immaculate, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and social hour. The pool and Jacuzzi were a relaxing way to spend the afternoons, and the use of the computers with high-speed internet access came in real handy. It was in a great location as well. We highly recommend the Ramada Foothills Inn & Suites.We hope to return to the Tucson area in the near future, and look forward to our next stay there.
My husband and I, brother and his wife booked our rooms two months in advance of our week long stay here. We picked this hotel because of its location nearer Sabino Canyon. Last year when in Tucson we stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites on N. Oracle Road which was EXCELLENT. This place was not. On check-in, after having booked king-sized suites, we were both given rooms with only double-beds. We argued with them that we had been guaranteed the king-sized rooms. They apologized, said nothing was available and would move us the next day. Didn't happen......same story. By that time we had settled in and they told us for our inconvenience they would charge us the same rate for the entire week, as opposed to our understood agreement we would have to pay $10 more on the weekend. We accepted that because we did not want to spend more time dealing with this when we wanted to start our sightseeing........but on check-out a week later the man at the desk argued with us that he had no record of this change in rate. We finally got it taken care of but not without a great deal of frustration on our part. We also learned when talking with another couple at the pool that they had been coming there for twenty years and been given the same treatment upon their arrival!!!!!!! No king-size bed for them either, same promise of a move the next day and didn't happen. They informed us that it was under new management, that the hot hors d'oeuvres previously served at happy hour were no longer. However, the mattresses ARE brand new and very comfortable. If we return next year, we will definitely not stay here again.........pool was also HOT whenever we used it as opposed to the Hampton Inn and Suites which was refreshing all day long. It was also a greater hike to some of the sightseeing places we wanted to go than was our stay on Oracle Road.
We chose this hotel based upon recommendations found on this travel website as well as other travel websites. We were definintely not disappointed.
We stayed here in November of 2004 and were quite happy. We chose this Ramada because of the price and its proximity to Sabino Canyon. The room was nice and it had a small refrigerator and a microwave which was a nice feature. Other nice features were the free continenetal breakfast and happy hour. You receive coupons for both when you check in. The continental breakfast was very good and allowed us to have a free, satisfying breakfast without leaving the grounds. Happy hour offers wine, beer or soda with chips and salsa. It was a good way to meet other travelers and exchange tips on Tucson. Because this Ramada is in East Tucson, it is a bit of a drive across Tucson to the Sonora Desert Museum, Old Tucson Studios, and Saguaro National Park West. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return.
We picked this property as it was close to Sabino Canyon and we were tired after a long hike and drive. We were pleasantly surprized that the desk clerk took notice of our travel magazine and let us know we could get a discount if we used the coupon inside( which we had overooked) We checked in to find a great clean room with all the amenties one could ask for. The motel provides a coupon for a 'social hour' (actually 2 hours long...) and beer and wine are provided on the house. One also gets a coupon for the Inn's very nice continental breakfast which satisfies the morning hunger most admirably. We enjoyed our stay here so much that we came back for a second night 5 days later when we passed through Tucson again. All in all, a very nice place at a great rate. Oops, almost forgot... the pool and hot tub are great too.
A Poor Quality Experience
The mattress in our room was worn-out and the bedspread was badly soiled. We notified the General Manager and she was 'too busy' to address our concerns during our stay. This was not the kind of service that we have come to expect from a Ramada.
A really pleasant hotel
The Ramada Foothills was perfect for my daughter and I, the front desk staff were helpful and knowledgeable about the area, the pool was warm, clean, private and nicely landscaped, there was a nice selection of food at breakfast and the rooms were clean and quiet. The nightly reception was dull but then neither of us drink beer, wine or pop (you're only choices). There were plenty of restaurants near the hotel and you could get to most places in the city fairly easily. Definitely would stay there again!
