Stayed here for one night visiting Tucson for the first time in eight years. We have stayed in a few Best Westerns over the years and while this one was okay, it's not what we consider a typical Best Western.
The room (237) was good sized and clean. Separate seating area, two flat screen TVs. Bathroom had a Jacuzzi tub and the hot water was more than ample. A made to order breakfast at an attached restaurant was free with the price of the room.
The first word of caution is the bed. Hard as a rock. Don't expect a comfortable, softer mattress. Was like sleeping on concrete. In the bathroom area they had two sets of earplugs. We at first thought the walls might be paper thin but turns out the train tracks a few blocks from this motel. Heard freight train horns all night. In the seating area, the sofa was very worn out. When I sat on it it almost sunk to the floor and I only weight 170 lbs.
The bathroom was another story. Dimly lit. The Jacuzzi tub is tricky to get in and out of if you're trying to take a shower (Take hold of the rail inside) Getting out is tricky too and I banged my knee. It's set very high. Also, the water knobs are tricky as well. Make sure the main knob is not adjusted to a twelve o'clock position while you're in there. You will get scalded.
Now for the free breakfast...We went on a Sunday morning. The hotel was sold out and that corning two people called in sick. Took an hour for us to get our breakfast which was itself okay but greasy. My wife could only take a few bites. Our server was more than nice ad I made sure she did get a big tip. She was working 3x too hard.
Now for the location. Located just north of downtown Tucson, this BW is surrounded by older hotels which might remind one of the older parts of Las Vegas. It is situated right across the street from a park that the homeless people hang out. There were about eight camped out directly across the street. Again, this BW does not measure up to our typical experiences. less
