The hotel was very nice and it was cool to have a casino and restaurant downstairs. The place was spotless and the employees were friendly, but the rooms were a different story. Although the rooms were clean and nice, too, the bed was very uncomfortable, and the pillows were straight out of a Motel 6 or something. The TV had a mind of its own and may have been on another rooms frequency, but the channel would change on its own, the volume would change, too. The A/C unit was one of those units that comes through the wall and sounds like a jet taking off every time it kicked on! Lastly, we were there for 2 nights with 2 rooms. Neither room was cleaned or restocked for the second night, so we had no fresh towels, coffee, made bed or anything. When we got in it was too late to call housekeeping, so we just dealt with it. For such a nice hotel that was so close to the Tucson airport, it's a shame that the main thing that you count on was not done. I doubt we would stay there again.

I dealt with the front desk staff about 4 times and they seemed like they did not know what they were doing. Everything else was awesome!!!

The Hotel and Casino are always clean and well maintained. I always enjoy coming here. Only one small concern, I stayed in the Hotel overnight with my special needs daughter as she loves coming here for her birthday: the beds in the special needs rooms are pretty high for a person that has mobility issues. Otherwise, she always has a great time. The staff at the front desk when we checked in were AWESOME.
