I spent a wonderful six evenings at the Sam Hughes. Susan Banner, the owner, was gracious, friendly and full of good information. The Inn itself suited me perfectly. I chose the single room, which was completely comfortable. I can't remember when I've slept so well. What I enjoy so much about an inn is breakfast and the Sam Hughes was...

Sam Hughes Inn is the most wonderful place - near the University, and with easy access to shopping and museums; truly home away from home. Susan Banner is a marvelous host, and her breakfasts were sublime. We had wonderful discussions around the table; breakfast was more like a great dinner party. The rooms are comfortable and clean; we slept as...

Had a wonderful stay. Susan the innkeeper was very helpful and fun to talk too. My room was separate from the house and opened into a lovely garden. It was very peaceful. Breakfasts were tasty and the guests were interesting as well. Be sure to pet Lucy, a very sweet and gentle dog.

Everything about our visit to the Sam Hughes Inn was perfect! The historic home is spacious and the landscaped grounds are beautiful.

I've just returned from Tucson and can't wait to return. I stayed for a week at the Sam Hughes Inn in the historic district of the same name, near the University of Arizona. The Sam Hughes neighborhood is quiet and residential, discreetly upscale with most properties showcasing gorgeous desert landscaping. Palms and cacti are everywhere. The Sam Hughes Inn is...

Sam Hughes Inn in Tucson was a wonderful place to stay. Quiet, rooms very clean and nicely decorated, delicious breakfasts.
