Oasis in the desert
Susan, the innkeeper/owner, and the Sam Hughes Inn B&B are perfect. My group made a necessary quick trip to Tucson with one day dedicated to fun. We stayed two nights at the Sam Hughes Inn. This visit was at the height of the Corona pandemic; therefore, cleanliness and safety were paramount. Susan was as particular about these two areas as we were. The room and amenities were spotless. She provided ample amounts of the exact breakfast items that we requested. We stayed in the Santa Fe room with our own private entrance off of her large, gorgeous, inviting patio. Susan and I emailed and texted with questions and updates before and during our stay. She offered tourist and restaurant advice which was very helpful. The price for the room, the location (in a quiet, historic neighborhood adjacent to the University of AZ), and the hospitality cannot be beat. I highly recommend the Sam Hughes Inn.

Safe & secure; great location & hospitality!
Susan was wonderful communicating with me in advance, providing COVID-safety information, asking what I wanted for breakfast, and giving arrival instructions. I felt very safe in her B&B, in the midst of the pandemic. I only wish I could have gotten to know her more personally... but that can hopefully happen the next time I'm in Tucson.
