The Adobe Rose Inn is beautiful and the hosts, Marion and Jim, are wonderful people who care about making their guests feel at home. Breakfasts are delicious! All rooms are lovely, each with their own personality. The location is great.It is perfect! As a world traveler, I can honestly say that this place deserves more than a rating of "outstanding!"

Beautiful place to stay.

Our stay at the Adobe Rose Inn was very nice. The location was great, we enjoyed the people we met there and Jim and Marion are lovely. Marion's breakfasts were delicious and the inn is quite beautiful. For some reason the ratings would not let me do outstanding or I would have given service that vote. The inn is tops on my list for where to stay next year.

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

The breakfast with the other guests and the hosts was such a friendly exchange of experiences that my wife and I felt as if we were among friends we'd known for years.

A relaxing Tucson retreat!
