Staying at the Lodge on the Desert felt like vacationing at a tropical resort. We only had one night in Tucson (next time it will be more!), but loved every minute of our stay at this beautiful boutique hotel! The vibe, the large rooms, the history, the comfort, the decor, the spectacular grounds, the saltwater pool, the bathrobes: everything! I love that this place cares about the environment, uses eco-conscious cleaning products and serves fresh local food. The hot free breakfast was absolutely delicious! I was very pleasantly surprised. And the pool is open 24 hours. We got back to the hotel after midnight and swam under the stars. It was magical. The staff was extremely friendly. Extra thanks to Alex at the front desk and Line at the breakfast buffet for making us feel so very welcome. Can't wait to return!

The room was very clean. The pillows, linen and towels are first rate. My husband and I enjoyed the on site restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. Most notable was the staff. From Alex on the front desk to the housekeeping staff - they are top rate. The entire team demonstrated a desire for our comfort. We plan to stay longer next year.

Room Tip: Very Clean room. Very comfortable.

Lodge on the Desert will be our go-to hotel in Tucson from now on. Beautiful grounds, attentive and friendly staff and our 1 bedroom suite (108) was huge and perfectly appointed with two outdoor patios. Good bed, nice TVs, very well lighted bathroom with double sinks. Breakfast was very good on the lovely patio. Nice pool area. Ask for a room in the newer section. Lodge on the Desert is a great value in an excellent location.

Absolutely beautiful grounds. The rooms were clean and spacious. All around staff were very friendly from check in to maintenance to the restaurant to check out. We received friendly hellos everywhere. We loved that the swimming pool was open 24 hours. We really enjoyed our stay!
