              Good location and no one bothered me.

              Room design -- living room w/ tv and BR w/ tv. The karaoke in the bar was a hoot!

              The restaurant food was truly terrible!!! The restaurant staff (excluding the chef's talent), however, was superb.

            • Older travelers

              The staff were very pleasant helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable with a great shower and there was also a fridge which was beneficial. .Complimentary breakfast was also included in the price of the room.

              staff very helpful, free breakfast voucher, suggestions of what to do. Well located in Tucson for sunset trails and 4th Avenue restaurants. East to get around and everything worked.

              Actually it was a bit pricey for the level of facilities. I think it was closer to $90 when it felt like a $60 place.

              Hot tub was nice. But I needed it to try to help the stiff neck I got from the crappy, too hard pillows. :^(

              WiFi was constantly disconnecting. Unfortunately, so was the Ethernet connection. Unacceptable. My toilet did not flush well, leaving waste in the bowl. Air conditioning fan was too powerful and too loud to sleep with; I left it off each night. The "Free Breakfast" at the on site restaurant gives new meaning to the term "greasy spoon". I've been staying at the Royal Sun for years, but things have degraded past the point of no return, in my opinion.

              Key didn't work second day and it was annoying having to go down the steps again to have it remagnetized. Also didn't realize from your website that you could request a ground floor room. I had to drag a heavy suitcase up the steps and was not offered help.

              It was fresh, newly remodeled and far enough away from I-10 to avoid hiway noises. Very clean, friendly place and staff was helpful. Pool and spa nice too!
