Not "duffers" but delightful stay
Posted Oct 11, 2016
The Casitas at Sabino Springs were like a default for us because mostly all the other Tucson hotels' booking status said "exceeds maximum guests" for us: two grandparents, and three grandchildren. I was sold when I saw that the Casitas had two actual bedrooms, a sofa bed, and a FULL kitchen. I was so surprised at just how full that full kitchen was: nice dinnerware, drawer full of cooking implements, full size coffee-maker, bagel sized toaster, full refrigerator with ice and water dispenser. Had read other online reviews that mentioned the possibility of seeing javelina and quail, and yep, that did happen and we were just delighted with that. The grandkids had a good time outside in the arroyo, running up and down the banks. Pool area was really relaxing. We didn't use it, but the Casita has a fireplace! Another reason that we chose this "hotel" was that our outings were for Mt. Lemmon and Sabino Canyon and they were relatively close to the hotel. The only drawbacks were ants in the kitchen, as other reviewers had mentioned, and also that business areas were a bit of a drive. That did not affect us because we had planned to be in transit anyway, but future guests should plan their shopping accordingly. We are not golfers, but for those who are, there was a poster in the kitchen that noted reduced rates for golf fees for Casitas guests. Grandkids said they'd like to come back, and I hope the good rate we got is still in effect when we do.
