Lodge on the Desert - El Montevideo: $99 for a One-Night Stay and Breakfast for Two During Low Season (Up to $230.50 Value) or $140 for a One-Night Stay and Breakfast for Two During High Season (Up to $330.50 Value) at Lodge on the Desert

After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Gain respite from the chaos with today's Groupon for a one-night stay and breakfast for two in the best available traditional or deluxe room, not including the deluxe spa king room or suites, at Lodge on the Desert on Alvernon Way. Choose from the following date and price-point options:

  • $99 for a stay during the low season: August 21–September 30, 2010, and May 22–August 20, 2011 (up to a $230.50 value)
  • $140 for a stay during the high season: October 1, 2010–May 21, 2011 (up to a $330.50 value)

Lodge on the Desert is a 103-room boutique hotel situated on five acres backed by the sublime beauty of the Santa Catalina Mountains and bursting with genial hospitality. The charming rooms available in this auspicious auberge are flavored with traditional Southwest décor, comfortable furnishings, and 32-inch or larger HDTVs. Like all siblings, each room expresses a slightly different chromosomal combination. Possible features include Mexican-tile floors, 10-foot ceilings, outdoor patios, and cozy gas fireplaces. Pathways meander around the lodge’s grounds, winding among regal palms, manicured lawns, pedicured native cacti, and seasonal ribbons of flowers like so many shimmering facets in a cherry Ring-Pop gem.

Swim in the contemporary outdoor pool and challenge the memory-foam bedding from your room to a game of Memory, the card-flipping game it was built specifically to master. Terry-lined bathrobes make non-terry-lined day clothes seem absurdly uncomfortable and as antiquated as wood-barrel overalls. Nearby, some of Arizona's finest golf courses enticingly whisper to club carriers while superb tennis facilities cast their nets toward racqueteers. Area attractions also include the Tucson Botanical Gardens, Reid Park Zoo, and the Tucson Museum of Art, each of which display the natural beauty of either flora, fauna, or artista, the latter of which blooms plentifully in the great tempera and celluloid plains of the desert.

Reservations required. Cancellations are possible until 3 p.m. three days prior to reservation, after which Groupon is forfeited. Today's deal is not valid October 7–9, 2010, and May 12–14, 2011.

Reviews

In & Out magazine and Tucson Weekly praised Lodge on the Desert. TripAdvisors give the hotel an average of four owl-eyes, and Expedia travelers give it a 4.5-average-satisfaction rating. OpenTablers give the lodge's restaurant a 4.1-star average, and 83% of Urbanspooners like it:

  • Blending the historic with the modern is always an architectural challenge, but when that challenge is overcome, the results are often very special. And special is the best word to describe the preservation and renovation of the historic midtown hideaway known as the Lodge on the Desert in Tucson. – Linda & Dr. Dick Buscher, In & Out

Excellent food and service
Jack J. · July 8, 2013
Very impressed with the food and the service!
Darsha D. · July 4, 2013
I think the wine list could use a little work but there are 8 or so wines by the glass. All and all a really good experience.
