The second time we have had the pleasure of staying at the Sam Hughes Inn, a great location. Susan is always very attentive and breakfast is always tasty and abundant. The rooms are clean and bright. Our bathroom was comodious and well appointed.

A wonderful stay in our own little "hide-away" with fantastic breakfasts and an attentive hostess! Sam Hughes Inn is in a convenient location for seeing the sites of Tucson.

During our pre-New Year's visit to Tucson, my fiancee and I stayed two nights in the Santa Fe Room at the beautiful Sam Hughes Inn. The room, which was accessible from an outdoor patio, was spacious, clean, and adorned with southwestern influences (e.g., the bathroom had lovely Mexican tiles). Susan, the innkeeper, was pleasant and prepared delicious breakfasts that took one's dietary restrictions into account. Lucy, the resident dog (a poodle mix), is very friendly. The backyard with its water fountain exudes peace and tranquility, and the inn's location in the Sam Hughes Neighborhood (hence, the inn's namesake) is very close to the University of Arizona. The Sam Hughes Inn offers superb value, and I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Tucson.

This was my fourth visit to the Sam Hughes Inn, and I've just reserved my fifth visit. Susan is a perfect host, and the accommodations are like being at home!

Susan was wonderful. Details overflowing. I had to have a special diet (Gluten Free) and she was able to make a lovely breakfast the two days we were there. She went above and beyond with researching the diet . The food was filling and such attention to detail . Her wonderful dog Lucy is as sweet as can be. The room we stayed in was in the guest house and was perfect. Clean and she had everything you could possibly need. The gardens in the back by the guest house were lovely. I will and have told many people about this B&B. Thank you Susan.
