Breakfast was delicious. Got to pick my own fresh grapefruits and lemons. Location was ideal.
Great Location , Quiet safe neighborhood, The owner , Leah , was terrific . nice room , great bed , good A/ C , good parking , very friendly , and private, as well . Close to the trolley and Time market , 6 blocks from the University.
Very small bathroom , esp. the sink .
This great little B & B is located in the heart of Tucson. It is walking distance to downtown, 4th Ave and the University. The warp around porch is a very comfortable place to sit - sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon. Parking was always available on the street. Lea provides sumptuous breakfasts every morning including fresh fruit, yogurt, fresh baked muffins and scones and a different hot entree such as frittata, eggs Benedict, pancakes and bacon each morning. Our suite, #1 - the Zen room had a full kitchen which was convenient but we didn't cook there because we were close to so many great restaurants.
If you are a light sleeper you may be wakened by the trains that pass through downtown Tucson several times a night with their horns blaring. The decor in our room was a bit tired - the ceramic tile in the bathroom is cracked and loose, the bed cover is worn, the kitchen had mismatched cutlery loose in a drawer, there were no glasses except for 2 wineglasses and one was cracked, the water cooer was empty and the hot water tap on the water did not function. There was no kettle or coffee maker but we were able to make do heating water in a pot for tea. Lea was very responsive and had replacements available.
very helpful owners
the fridge in the room was very loud
Spacious room. Friendly approachable manager.
It calls itself a hotel yet there was no daily maid service. I guess I should have read the fine print.
Strategic position (15 min walk distance to UA). Fantastic breakfast home-cooked every morning. Kindness of the hostess. I would come back again.
Train and high speedway close-by. Room fine but moderately clean.
Fantasrtic house design and room style, outside terrasses, opportunity to meet guests and owner
Breakfast Not so easy to find
Lea was great fun to talk with and find out the house and her history. The location is close to the U, restaurants and access is easy from the interstate.
The nature of old houses is that conversion to a B&B leaves some things insufficient - like the shower that had to conform to the slope of the roof. University Ave is plenty busy.
Great location to enjoy the Monsoon weather.
beautifully decorated rooms. We enjoyed the kitchen to cook our own meals. We could walk to restaurants and stores close by. Very much enjoyed the hosts and friendliness. Very helpful and giving directions and helping us get to know the area.highly recommended.
Siting on porch at night. Good location for visiting national parks
noisy aircon; lack of kettle; lack of nice fluffy towels (or any towels for 1st night; not appropriate kitchen equipment. The fridge was too large and cooled to too low a temperature.
I liked everything about the Big Blue House. Accommodations were great and breakfast very nice. Lea is a wonderful hostess and is sure that everything is fine with her guests.
Fantastic location in Tucson - get any where in a matter of minutes! The house has great character and well there is Lazlo the house kitty who sat with us on the front porch! We had a great time!
The beds were a bit hard, but otherwise the place is great!
the privacy, the front porch, the front porch cat, the breakfasts, the character of the room
Proximity to UA. Uniqueness of room decor.
No Kleenexs in room.
The B & B staff was friendly and made sure we were taken care of. The breakfasts were very good. We would return. The location near the U of AZ and 4th Ave. was excellent.
It was in the historic downtown area.
The room was dark and cold.
decorated in excellent taste - an interesting building. Great location for the university, restaurants and tourist attractions.
Nothing to dislike.
Innovative blend of modern and older style furnishings and fittings in a wonderful old home, and proximity to the University of Arizona.
No gripes - it was a great experience.
Lovely environment. Delicious breakfast. Perfect location.
This is the perfect place to stay in Tucson. Close to 4th Avenue with all its shops and restaurants, close to the freeway if you want to explore the area, and a wonderfully private home away from home. We loved it and will definitely return if we are in the area.
Location was perfect for walking. Our room was private and had a lovely porch.
The details were lacking, such as no paper towels or towels in the kitchen, no shampoo, hot water wasted water while waiting to get hot. The pillows were lumpy and the bedding was ragged. Not sure if this was only our unit or not.
Nicely decorated rooms.
Service is uninterested.
