The Westward Look was a very nice property. We loved the smaller buildings with just a few rooms in each. There was ample free parking throughout the resort. We enjoyed the live music in the bar on Friday night before we left, and were surprised at how popular that was. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was that the arms on the leather couch in our room was cracking and peeling. This property is located quite a distance from central Tucson, and most of our activities were a 30-minute drive from where we were staying. We tend to leave for the day when we leave our lodging, though, so this wasn't really a problem for us. There were many nice places to eat close to the Westward Look.
"Nice resort -- other than the insanity of their double beds"
All the north Tucson resorts are pretty similar -- pleasant desert scenery/architecture and good amenities -- and the Westward Look definitely fits the mold (heck, it's old enough that it may have created the mold). The two advantages of this property is its relative closeness to Tucson (convenience) and very large rooms (most seem to be more than 600 square feet). The one really big negative for families is that despite the size of the rooms, management has stuck with only offering rooms with two double beds (couples can reserve rooms with single kings -- you might want to call to make sure they'll actually hold one of these rooms for you). Sharing a small double bed makes for bad sleep and vacation crankiness, and it truly boggles the mind why you would place such small beds in such large rooms. Resort amenities here are good, but there's no golf and only average pools. We headed to the lap pool to escape the extreme noise of the two main pools: highly recommended if you don't have screechers in your party. Given these pros and cons, I wouldn't necessarily prefer this resort (especially with family), but I certainly would consider it if the price was favorable to other resort properties. I'd also note that the hotel can be a good deal if you have Wyndham Rewards points to spend.
"Not worth the price, rude front desk staff, loud, unclean"
My husband and I stayed here over the weekend. Our room was not ready at 4pm check-in and we were told they didn't know when it would be ready but they'd call us. We checked in on it again in an hour after hearing nothing, the room still wasn't ready but the manager put us in similar suite. Upon checking in, we were greeted by the drama of our neighbors having a very loud dispute. The bathroom had hair in the sink drain, paper in the toilet and a dead cricket behind the toilet as well. Staff race around on golf carts at a high rate of speed and almost hit my husband as we walked around a corner and one parked behind our car while delivering breakfast so we were unable to leave for our breakfast plans for a good 15 minutes. We ended up leaving without staying our second night due to more loud drama and music from our neighbors. Not a place I'll stay again, prefer the Omni by far.
"Lovely desert location"
Beautiful desert landscaping throughout. The pools and common areas are pretty and inviting. Our room was spacious, bed was comfortable; however, the room and bathroom decor is looking a bit tired. The step-in shower had a shower head that was not easily adjusted so the water spray fired right at me and out the shower door as I reached in to turn it on. The room walls are thin and definitely not sound proof. It sounded like elephants were occupying the room above us. I enjoyed a great massage at the spa with a massage therapist named Carol. The pool and hot tub were wonderful and the Sunday breakfast/brunch was very nice too.
Great resort. In north Tucson. Older resort but well maintained. Great value for resort experience. Have friends and family stay here when in Tucson. Summer rates offer great discounts with many amenities.
