More About Tucson, AZ Hotels...

Plan Your Stay Around the Best Seasons 

There is virtually no rainy season in Tucson. If you love the sun, anytime is a good time to visit. From October to late March, Tucson experiences warm temperatures in the low 70s. This is a popular time to visit, so book your accommodations early. 

If you want to avoid winter crowds as well as Tucson’s hottest weather, then April and May are the ideal months to visit. The temperature averages from the mid 80s to the low 90s, and the city hosts the Arizona International Film Festival and the Tucson Folk Fest during this time. Tucson experiences its hottest temperatures in June, July, and August, with highs consistently in the 100s, which coincides with when hotel rates are lowest. 

When Getting Around on a Budget, the Bus is Your Best Bet 

Tucson International Airport is only 15 minutes away, making transportation to and from the airport a breeze. Although the airport has eight rental car companies on site, as well as taxi and shuttle services, the city’s Sun Tran public bus system is the best bet. 

With full fares costing only $1.50, the Sun Tran has routes from the airport to downtown, and hundreds of other stops throughout the city. Because of this, Sun Tran is the preferred method of transportation in and around the city as well. Walking the city is also an option, but it is wise to avoid the mid-afternoon temperature highs. 

For the Cheapest Hotel Rates, Stay Near the City Center 

Tucson has tons of great restaurants, museums, and shopping, which is why the city center is the perfect place to stay. The Best Western Plus Royal Sun Inn & Suites and the Marriott University Park are both inexpensive hotel options within walking distance of 6th Street and the entertainment district. 

For more low-cost accommodations near the city center, the Super 8 Downtown is right next to the Tucson Convention Center and the Motel 6 on Congress Street is conveniently located near I-10.

If you’re looking for accommodations closer to the Santa Catalina Mountains, the Westin La Paloma Resort and the Embassy Suites also offer budget-friendly rooms. 

The Outdoors is Tucson’s Number One Attraction 

There are a number of great indoor attractions in Tucson, like the Pima Air and Space Museum and the Tucson Museum of Art and History, which encompasses a few downtown blocks. But, to really experience Tucson without spending a lot of money, the great outdoors has it all. 

Sabino Canyon and Saguaro National Park offer hours of beautiful hiking and bird’s eye views of the city. Mount Lemmon and the nearby Butterfly Peak Natural Area are perfect day trip destinations just a short drive from the Catalina Foothills. And, for the perfect sunset walk, the Kitt Peak National Observatory offers breathtaking views of Tucson.
