We had a wonderful experience at The Lodge, and Case (front desk) deserves a raise! He was so accommodating, friendly, professional. The room (beautiful, clean) and grounds (perfectly maintained) are picturesque....so glad we chose Lodge on the Desert and would love to stay there again.

Breakfast is included: it’s a good buffet. The hotel is about 45 minutes from Old Tucson, maybe an hour, depending on traffic. Hope this helps.

Hello paintnut8, Trail dust town is 5 miles from the hotel and a 10 - 15 minute drive. Our front desk staff can help with direction. We look forward to seeing you at the Lodge! Jim Kerrigan General Manager

@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.
