This was the second time I have stayed here. It is like visiting wonderful friends. The Inn is beautifully decorated through out and next time I hope to enjoy the surrounding grounds. Did I mention it has the best breakfast in town. A third visit is a must.

We highly recommend Catalina Park Inn. This is our second visit and we hope to return many more times. A delightful, beautifully appointed inn with large, comfortable rooms and excellent food. Located within walking distance to the university, shopping and downtown. Mark and Paul are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make their guests welcome. We hope...

Mark opened the door to a beautiful, sparkling clean home. Our room was very comfortable and complete with all we needed. The 4 nights we stayed both Mark & Paul couldn't have been more helpful and insightful to our needs. Anytime there was talk of something going on in Tucson all the paperwork was in our hands before we knew...

Our second visit to this lovely B & B was like coming home to family. Paul and Mark are the quintessential hosts with a real affection for their city and its culture (we've grown very fond of the area ourselves), providing an endless menu of activities in and around Tucson. The inn itself is beautifully restored and decorated, with the...

We recently visited friends in Tucson and stayed at the Catalina Park Inn.We have stayed there before and wholeheartedly give it our highest recommendation.

Thanks for your glowing review! It was nice to see you again (after your last visit to Tucson in 2007.) Please don't wait another five years to return! But thank you so much for remembering us. It is always nice to see guests from the past. Our repeat clientele is like a large extended family. Some go way back to...

My husband and I just spent 4 nights here. From the moment we called to make the reservation to the moment we left things could not have been better.

After spending one night at the Hotel Congress for a wedding party -I moved to this warm & calming inn. I stayed in West Room and loved mornings on the balcony overlooking wonderful cactus garden.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review Sonja. I really enjoyed our breakfast conversations. I am glad you decided to try staying at an inn by yourself. We actually have a lot of single guests (male and female) who enjoy the homey feeling of an inn and meeting and talking with interesting fellow travelers at breakfast. Hope to...

This place is a gem. It is a beautiful historic house in the West University neighborhood, just a few blocks from the restaurants, bars, shops, and music venues of Fourth Avenue and downtown Tucson, as well as close to the U of A.

Opposites attract. Take my husband: He prefers the homogeneous blandness of big name resorts, where no one knows your name and hot river rock massages are available daily. I, on the other hand, like to wake up to funky authenticity, architectural history and personal touches. Something that resembles home, away from home. When I informed him just a few miles...

Wow! What a great review. Thanks very much for taking the time to post it. We are always glad to hear about someone “flipping” a B&B skeptic to become a B&B convert. The “surprise” was a gutsy move. Way to go! We really appreciate you noticing all the subtle details. Thanks again. We look forward to you next visit. Mark...
