Historical Traveller Reviews of The Hotel Arizona Tucson
Not great, but not horriblefrom RatherBeDiving
If you're a light sleeper, this is not the best place for you. The walls seem to be pretty thin- we could hear the people in the room next to us talking and they weren't talking that loudly. We were on the 10th floor and we still had a lot of traffic noise from the street below.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend it and I wouldn't stay here again, but I'm not completely regretting my stay- I got it on Priceline for a pretty good price. The location is great if you're going to the Gem show or something else downtown and the view of Tucson from our window is great.

Stay Away!!!!from 4bzboys
What we learned from this experience is to always look up reviews on Trip Advisor before booking a room! It would have been just as clean staying at the hotel down the street with the sign busted out. I would say that this is a 1 star hotel. If your brave enough to stay then wearing slippers at all times is a must, and don't forget the blankets! Oh ya, earplugs also! How could I forget about the train that goes by at 10p.m. 1, 3 & 5 a.m. Oh well, at least they blow the horn several times to let you know its coming.
Never again!!!from SakeDad
The rooms are NOT what is pictured on the website, they are considerably threadbare and the ceilings are very low. Many had missing closet doors as well. The only time we could get maid service was when we told the desk we were leaving and available for it, otherwise no maids showed up.
The bartender acted as though we were a bother to stay for, the front desk was run by very inexperienced people who kept repeating "Our system isn't set up for that" no matter how simple a request!! Get a new system! Also, while they do have LodgeNet wireless access in the rooms it is extremely slow at 11MB.
Unless you consider Motel 6 a 5 star property I would HIGHLY recommend you NOT stay here!!
In the immortal words of Bette Davis....."WHAT A DUMP!"
Great Stay at Hotel Arizonafrom TinkFan

NOT impressed - definitely not a typical 3-star hotelfrom airplanebob
I was not given the room that I was promised. Prior to arriving I learned that the hotel allows pets. I contacted the hotel and I explained that I suffer from pet allergies. The hotel promised me a room on the upper floor. Upon checking in I was given a room on the second floor. The first couple of floors smelled damp and stale.
Our room smelled pretty bad. Fortunately, our window was broken. We were able keep the window open and run the air conditioner; this allowed the smell to dissipate in a few hours.
Our bathroom was pretty cramped and did not have enough towels. Black mould was growing on the caulking in the bathtub/shower………very unattractive.
The corridors and rooms looked like they were in poor condition. I saw lots of surfaces with flaking/peeling paint and wallpaper separating from the wall. This gave the place a generally rundown appearance.
The bathrooms in the lobby smelled terrible. They either smelled strongly of urine or they smelled of bleach. In either case I held a towel over my nose when I walked into the bathrooms.
When I checked into the hotel the desk clerk asked me for a credit card; he explained that the card was needed to incidental expenses. He also wanted my driver’s license. When I produced the cards he immediately walked into the backroom and returned a photo copy of both the cards!!! I was a little surprised but he told me that he would keep them on file for the duration of the stay. When we checked out I asked for the photocopy of my driver’s license and credit card. The desk clerk refused to give me a copy of my cards. He told me that the hotel keeps the photo copies for 5 years and then discards the copies. I explained my concern for credit card security. The desk clerk explained that only the hotel staff has access to driver’s license and credit card numbers………………Hmmmm……not sure if I like this.
Upon arriving home I called my credit card company to explain that my card number may be compromised. In doing so they checked my account and located and unauthorized charge by the hotel !!!!
The Hotel Arizona is definitely not a 3-star hotel.
s allfrom magaz
We were only there for one night but we did have dinner in the restaraunt and after the show we had a drink at the bar. The one consistency throughout was the lack of customer service by the employees.
We were a group of 7 and we had 3 rooms. None of the beds were comfortable.
We were told by the hotel that they had a very nice restaraunt so we decided to try it. It was a buffet with minimal selections that were mediocre at best. disappointing.
I tried to provide feedback but was told that they had no forms available.
If I was attending the convention center again and wanted to spend the night in Tucson I would absolutely stay somewhere else and pay cab fare for the ride. This place is not worth it!!
Not the Best Hotel for Your $$$from MichaelB30
Sunday morning came and when I went for my free breakfast, I was told that the restaurant was only open M-F. If I had not upgraded to the Presido, I might have given this place 3 stars. The rooms are clean, but for the money, there are other hotels in the area that are a lot better.

Top Local Tips for Tucson
Plays right in your back yard. The Convention center and theater are right in your back yard. The view is excellent.
Breakfast and lunch home cooking! Robert's Restaurant on E. Grant and the Hungry Fox on E. Broadway have amazing breaksfasts and lunch specials on weekdays. It's good home cooking and both offer great value for the dollar.
