    Great room and service

    It was great. The room was big and clean, we loved the gas fireplace and the little patio where we could sit and enjoy fresh air. All of the amenities were great. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Tucson.

    Great hotel. An Oasis. Room wasn't too fancy and bathroom was small and outdated, but very clean. The grounds were impeccable. Restaurant was nice and the staff was friendly and efficient.

  • 6.0.Good

    I was expecting a fire place in our room so I was immediately a bit disappointed when there wasn't one. We had planned for a late check out, however, the bed was so uncomfortable to the point where neither of us could sleep. We ended up packing up and leaving at 630am, skipping breakfast. Drinks at the bar are way overpriced. Everyone was super friendly and service was quick when I called for bathrobes.

    I always stay here when I come to Tucson.

    Any time I go to Tucson, I enjoy staying at Lodge on the Desert. The service is always so wonderful and I especially love the on-site restaurant and bar. Food is fabulous and the wait staff really take care of you. Grounds are always immaculate and the pool is refreshing. Highly recommend.

    Charming retreat in the desert

    A seamless experience from check-in to check-out. Beautiful little casita rooms with a courtyard view and chairs to enjoy. Beds were super comfortable and we LOVED the gas fireplace. Restaurant on site provides complimentary breakfast and outdoor seating for dinner. Super convenient location, just down the street from the botanical gardens. Would return here in a heartbeat.

    Unable to dine at the Hotel Restaurant

    The lady at check in was amazing, the staff in the Cielo's (Hotel) Restaurant and bar were also amazing. However, we were unable to dine at the hotel restaurant because they were full with local people. We stayed 2 nights and didn't get a reservation either night. They did serve us a fabulous complimentary breakfast which made up for not being able to dine at the hotel at night.
