3 star hotel
Area: Highland Vista Cinco Via
2.45 mi from Reid Park Zoo
Best Rooms: If you're looking for a pool view room, ask for any room ending either in *42 - 46 or *05 - *09 on floors 1 - 2 (e.g. 242, 109). The hotel can't offer spectacular mountain views because it's only 3 stories high, but rooms ending in *27 to *31 on floor 3 (e.g. 327, 329, 331) offer a partial view.
Best Rooms: Extended Stay America Tucson is located adjacent to E Grant Rd. and is surrounded by the parking lot, so you won't find any good views.
Best Rooms: The hotel has rooms in all categories that offer a nice view of the mountains. Ask for the ones that are at the far end from E. Grant Rd. It also has a pool which can be seen from a select few standard rooms on floor 3.
