Experience the Beauty and the Warm Hospitality of The Joesler Historic Inn known as "La Posada del Valle”, or The Inn of the Valley of Tucson! Our Inn was the first bed and breakfast Inn established in Tucson and is located in one of Tucson’s most historic buildings. Tucson’s most famous architect, Josias Joesler, designed the Inn in the 1920’s as a near perfect example of early “Santa Fe” style architecture. This style is based upon the haciendas of the southwestern region, using true adobe construction, authentic Spanish tile, large porches, courtyards, breezeways and in our case, beautiful landscaped grounds. Our lush courtyard garden is shaded by citrus trees and enormous date palms and bursts with the color of bougainvillea. Furnished with fine southwestern antiques, original antique artworks and folk art, our Inn is truly the only one its kind in the region. Your host, Janos Siess, was previously the long-term manager of New York City's famous Café des Artistes restaurant - Janos and his family really know the meaning of fine food and warm hospitality! We are dedicated to providing you with a unique and relaxing experience during your stay.
The Oriental captures the exotic influence of the Chinese and Southeast Asian settlers in the old western mining towns. The private entrance of the Oriental opens to our large and lush gardens. The Oriental provides queen bed accommodation. Private bathroom included with bath and shower! Private entrance!
The romance of the fine Victorian hotels in old western towns is captured beautifully in our Crystal Room, named after the famous hotel that still stands in the nearby old mining town of Tombstone. The Crystal opens onto a charming, small private courtyard. The Crystal provides queen bed accommodation. Private bathroom!
The Rancheros embodies the colorful spirit and fine tastes of the Mexican ranchers, whose unique style has continued to evolve through to today's modernist influences. The Rancheros opens onto a spacious private courtyard. The Rancheros provides king bed accommodation. Private bathroom!

For our reunion, we chose a bed & breakfast to insure having a common area for our family of first and second cousins to meet and share stories over a glass of wine. We stayed four nights, enjoying the Tucson sites during the day and fellowship in the evenings. La Posada's main room fit the bill nicely with two couches and several chairs that could be organized for our purpose. A computer and wireless internet also met our needs for trip planning, etc. While this B&B is quite old, it is also very quaint and interesting. The breakfast each morning was outstanding, featuring a fresh fruit bowl with yogurt dressing and either eggs or french toast for the main entree. It was delicious but only served during a very short time window. There is no coffee service other than that done for breakfast. The outside of La Posada could be delightful but was in a terrible state of upkeep. Weeds abound and a lack of watering was evident. Checking in was interesting as there is no proprietor on site. You call a phone number and tell them you have arrived. They provide a code for the front door lock and you are then on your own. It was rather nice to be trusted to that degree, especially in this time of heightened security, but I can see how a less than scrupulous individual might take advantage. However, your room has its own lock and key and we felt secure. My wife and I stayed in their least expensive room (room 2) and it was adequate. One cousin and her husband stayed in room 4 and it was quite nice, though quite a bit more expense. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and it was wonderful to sit around at night and catch up on each other's lives. La Posada provided precisely the experience we desired.

This is a wonderful place to stay. Breakfast is wonderful. La Posada del Valle is lovely, clean and quiet. If we come back to Tucson we would always saty here for at least a couple of days.

This is a beautiful home and I had a lovely room. Breakfast was fabulous--no need for lunch! The host and his helper were very friendly--really couldn't ask for more. My expectations are high, so I couldn't give more than three stars in honesty but, I give three very high marks for this bed and breakfast.

We normally stay at the Marriot but it was full for U of A family weekend last month. We were very pleasantly surprised by the B & B. We were reluctant because we had a small child with us. He is 9 and they say - your well behaved children over 8 welcome. We read this to him and he behaved for us. It is a very old house with squeaky floors and lots of charm. The first night we were there by ourselves but the next two nights there was two other families. We walked back and forth to the events at the campus which was about a mile trek each way. Just be careful if you do the same because the streets are very busy - Campbell and Speedway. The breakfast was delicious especially the chorizo and eggs our first morning there. My husband was in heaven! We will definitely stay here again.

Water cooler didn't have any water in it. Would like flavored cream for coffee. Food was excellent as always!

La Posada Del Valle is lovely. The rooms are comfortable and you can sit outside and relax in a very nice garden or porch. You can also hang out in a living room full of books and artwork. Breakfast is super delicious and the people who work there, Janos and Soccoro, are really nice, friendly and accomodating. It was my second time there and if I return to Tucson, I will stay there again.

We've stayed here before and this last visit was all we hoped. The location is convenient to all of Tucson. The atmosphere is authentic, personal and warm. But the absolute highlights are Janos' personal oversight (he called me the day before our visit to remind me of the security code) and Soccoro's breakfast...complete with her smile! I recommend rooms 4 and 5.
