    Very nice property. Ate breakfast and dinner (happy hour) at lodge. Would stay again. Use this lodge as a base to visit the area south of Tucson. Room was large and very clean. Service was very good. February was good time of year to visit.

    @ajeepgirl80 - Downtown is approximately 10-15 mins away. Uber and Lyft are heavily used, and can be very helpful when parking is at a premium due to special events.
