The Tuxon is similar to a European boutique hotel. The lobby is new. The hotel itself is more like a 1950’s motel. The rooms recently remodeled, small but tasteful. The towels great. The neighborhood is convenient to downtown and the convention center but a bit sketchy. Exterior rooms face I17. Interior rooms face the nice pool area. Noise from traffic easily muffled by running the fan continuously.

The Tuxon was such a marvelously well designed and welcoming place. The sign at night shone like a beacon. With the simple, uncluttered lobby, you soon became familiar to staff. The triangular array of the rooms and the other balcony, with the pool in the middle, was brilliant. The rooms themselves were comfortable with had just the necessities. The food options were limited but tasteful. I ate breakfast 6 or the 7 days I was there. Staff were friendly and accommodating. It was like a high end hostel, but in a good way. Very good value for a hotel. We loved our stay there.

Fun place, good bar, good food, nice staff. I've read complaints in reviews. This is not a business hotel. I stayed here for a wedding and didn't need a business center or something like that. The design is original, not the usual boring hotel stuff, and the beds are high quality. There aren't other food options in walking distance, but Tucson isn't very walkable. Lots of good restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive.

Clean, modern, stylish and comfy.
I only stayed one night but it was a great experience. Check in was quick and friendly. There is a pool, small bar and restaurant services in the main building, but I did not use them. It's obvious these are old motel rooms that has been renovated, but they did a fantastic job. Our room was extremely clean, stylish and comfortable. My bed was very comfy, loved the comforter too. The parking lot gate closes at 9pm, which is nice for added security. We chose a room in the back of the complex, so we had a view of the "A" mountain. Check out was nice too. I received an email with a link to check out. Easy and quick! It was a very clean, modern, stylish facility. I would recommend staying here and will consider it when I'm staying in Tucson again!
