Reviewed 3 August 2013

Filthy rooms, trashed beds, ancient matresses, dingy linens, and a completely inadequate air-conditioning system that has never been updated since the 50s when they were installed, no working phone at front desk, no return calls about a left item. The Silver Saddle Steak House next door however is absolutely great.

I was surprises when we arrived. The pictures on the internet must have taken many years ago. The front desk was dirty and cluttered and the bathroom had mold. The pool had no water, Trashy looking, we were placed at the back end of the hotel and at 3am we were awakened by the sound of the police and drug...

This motel is actually right on the on ramp for the I-10 so lets face it, there is going to be some road noise. I never found it overly intrusive. It did mean that the motel was actually a bit hard to find: I came down Park from Tucson, which intersects with Benson but the Interstate gets in the way....

We were in Tucson on business for one week. My fiance had stayed here previously however the owners were new. We were given only two towels...had no hot water...our tv did not work and we did not have a blanket. They have an AAA sign up there is NO way this is current.

I stayed for 5 days here during the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. I needed a kitchenette due to food allergies. I absolutely loved the room, it was more of an apartment. It even had a dining room with a table for 6. The carpet was a little old and dirty, the kitchen had new tile and was spotless and...

We stayed at the Lazy8 motel in Tucson for 4 nights in May 2009 to kick off a Southwest USA sightseeing tour. We live in Germany and planned the trip ahead of time on the internet and found this motel on Google. One on of the main criteria for us was to get a budget motel that's clean and has...

I have stayed at the Lazy 8 at least once a year for many years. In the past I would have always agreed with their slogan, Tucson’s Cleanest Budget Motel. However, I now find slogan to be somewhat less that completely accurate. The grounds are littered with paper debris and cigarette butts, the paint was peeling in the bathroom, the...

The Lazy 8 advertises as "Tucson's Cleanest Budget Motel." The trouble is, cleanliness will not make up for the fact that the motel needs plenty of maintenance to improve the comfort of guests. Here are some of the problems we encountered: 1. The sweep at the bottom of the door was missing, which must be very drafty in colder weather...

The Lazy 8 is an older motel in need of some maintenance but is clean and comfortable. It is a little difficult to find, access being from a freeway exit. Their website has instructions to help find the entrance. It is quiet despite being near the freeway - the rooms are located well away from the road. Staff were particularly...

I was touring the National Park Service's desert parks and monuments in southern Arizona, and planned to be in Tucson for four days. After reading reviews here of the Lazy 8 Motel in Tucson, I was a little tentative, so I booked a room with kitchenette for one night to check it out. It turned out to be better for...
