The Lodge on the Desert (306 N. Alvernon Way; 520-320-2000 or 877-498-6776), 4 miles from campus, is a moderately priced choice, with rates somewhat higher during the winter season (December-May). The lodge will remind you of a Mexican hacienda. The Arizona Inn (2200 E. Elm St.; 520-325-1541), just over 1 mile from the campus, has all the amenities of a grand hotel, including tennis courts, a swimming pool, and acres of lawns and gardens. Some less expensive choices are more convenient to the campus. University Inn (950 N. Stone Ave.; 520-791-7503 or 800-233-8466) has a midtown location close to shopping and to the campus, and you can have a double room in a relaxed atmosphere for an inexpensive rate. One mile from campus (courtesy car to the campus) is the Ramada Downtown (665 N. Freeway; 520-622-6491), with doubles in the moderate range, a peaceful garden, and a heated pool. A couple of nice bed-and-breakfasts are within walking distance of the university. La Posada del Valle (1640 N. Campbell Ave.; 520-795-3840) has a special rate in the moderate range for university visitors that drops down from June-September. Peppertree's Bed and Breakfast (724 E. University Blvd.; 520-622-7167) is a 1905 Territorial home offering a full gourmet breakfast and afternoon tea. Peppertree's has moderate rates for its 4 rooms.
 
Local Accommodations: Far Away:
Consider Tanque Verde Ranch (14301 E. Speedway; 520-296-6275). This is a fabulous ranch with riding and tennis, indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, and exercise room. It's a very expensive choice, but the cost includes 3 full meals. don't forget that the very expensive Canyon Ranch Spa (8600 E. Rockcliff Road; 520-749-9000) is in Tucson. You can enjoy a luxury spa and be only a 35-minute drive from the University of Arizona.
