Sir, we have been staying at the Country Inn & Suites on 705 Freeway in Tucson for the last (4) years. Trap Shooter price has been 85.00 per night with a FREE HOT breakfast. The Breakfast is GREAT and if you subtract the 20.00 dollars or more for Breakfast some other place the Room charge is a Good deal. David, Heather, April and the rest of the staff Are VERY nice people and the Rooms are SUPER Nice.Located between Speedway & St. Mary's Exits on I-10 and about 15 Minutes from TT&SC.I would call NOW as There are a LOT of trapshooters stay there.Phone # is 520-867-6200 Hope This Helps. Oh by the way there is another Country Inn & Suites in Tucson But, is out by the Airport. Joe Whitehurst joe90t
I stayed at the one out by the airport a few years ago for a shoot, it was the host htel then. Not far from the club, easy to get to once we learned our way around. There are some high end resorts there also if you want to go that route. I'd stay at the County Inn again, it was a good deal and bfasts were good.
The Casino Del Sol on West Valencia has a 4 diamond hotel. They worked with the Tucson T&S and offered a double room for around a $100./night, plus taxes. If they are still offering this price it would be a great place to double up and still have a bargain.
It's "high season" for the city during the Spring Grand so they may be much higher than during the Autumn Grand. I'd call the Gun Club for details.
smsnyder, Just a word of advice---DO NOT stay at the Motels on the EAST side of Tucson. Red Roof Inn and others have had cars broken into and Trap Guns stolen in the last few years. Some of these Motels are "Drug Dealer" havens and have had SHOOTOUTS in the past. I SPEAK the truth on this subject but, Hey it is up to you. If you want to call me my # is 575-760-1379 Joe Whitehurst joe90t
I stayed for years at the Quality Inn on east Benson. Having our trailer, makes our stay much safer. I was becoming increasingly concerned with the neighborhood the last couple of years -- may still be ok but there is a motel 6 and another shakey one pretty close...........(the QI does have armed guards - jfyo)
I had a reservation at the Hampton Inn by the airport and after SES mentioned the "special price" at the casino I called and got 2 rooms there at that $99 price point.
Hampton was in the $130 range. The reservation lady at the casino mentioned that I got the last 2 rooms, but if you're looking for a room I'd call and see if they are really booked for that special price. It certainly seems to be the best deal in town for the money and safety factor.
Besides, how can drinks and blackjack be bad after a long day at the club?
Like was said..My cousin lives near there...his directions are A) only bring the guns you absolutely need B) Remove any gun related stickers/Items from the outside AND inside your car..dont leave your shooting coats, sweaters or hats in view..C)bring the guns in the room with you as discreetly as possible in the sturdiest travel case you have and handcuff/chain it, hidden if possible to the most unmoveable pipe or part of the room structure you have access to....the thieves have shoot calendars and to them its like Xmas and they will be shopping in force ...he knows this from experience
If you have to leave any valuables in your vehicle, here's a tip. Get a single size flat sheet from Walmart (cheap) in black or the color of your interior. Place it over everything inside, like flats of shells, or anything that looks tempting. I have done this for years in the back seat of my truck for things I didn't want to lug into the room. It's simple and effective because they usually spot something in plain sight to break in. I would also be aware of your surroundings before moving gun cases into the room. Do the same thing if your out to eat or shop during your stay. There is no such thing as a safe area of any town, good luck.
