Tucson Weekend

Pros: The ability to walk to many places and the very friendly staff.
The Downtown Clifton was a very pleasant surprise. Choosing a hotel online can be hit or miss. The hotel was very close to downtown Tucson and the start, finish line of El Tour de Tucson. My wife and I were able to walk nearly everywhere we wanted to visit. The room was clean and stocked with snacks. The staff was very friendly. If you visit be sure to visit the 5 Star Restaurant and Market and the Cushing Street Restaurant. Both are three or four blocks from the hotel. Both have excellent food. We also got discount coupons for the 5 Star Restaurant.

Accommodating with personality!

Pros: Décor (mid century meets western) of this 50s style motel in a nice location for exploring downtown and adjacent neighborhoods, price, friendly staff
Cons: An additional chair in the room, coffee pot in room (coffee in lobby wasn't ready when we got up)
Location: nice location, nice walk to Broadway, downtown area, nice restaurants nearby
Staff were friendly and accommodating, arranging an early check in so we could visit with family on a rainy day.
