My daughter and I stayed her while she was doing a tour of University of Arizona. We appreciated the proximity to campus (walking distance).

Cozy and welcoming

Jim and Marion create an atmosphere at which we immediately felt at home. They are so friendly, welcoming and helpful. Our room (the Rincon) was so comfortable. The seemed to enjoy going out of their way to prepare a safe breakfast for me, taking into account my food allergies. We plan to return.

Nous avons apprécié cette étape à Tucson. Nos hôtes Marion et Jim ont été très accueillants et prévenants. Nous avons apprécié l'excellent petit déjeuner cuisiné par Marion et pris en commun avec les autres guests. Nous conseillons l'Adobe Rose Inn et y reviendrons

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.
