Marion and Jim Hook are excited to be the innkeepers of the Adobe Rose Inn. Both feel that their previous careers have been invaluable in helping them establish one of the most sought after bed and breakfasts in Tucson.
Marion worked in the field of education, both domestically and abroad, for more than 30 years. For the past 2 decades before coming to the Adobe Rose Inn, she developed programs for international guests of the US government. Her work often involved hosting international dignitaries for an evening, a weekend or several weeks. She even prepared and served lunch to former Indonesian President Habibi.
Jim worked in the people side of Information Technology for over 30 years as a systems designer, as a management consultant, and as a sales executive. Several themes have been consistent throughout Jim's diverse careers - excellent, high quality customer service; flexibility and enjoying people.
Marion and Jim's interests include travel (they've traveled to 15 international countries and most of the States in the US), lively conversation, food, global events, and blues, jazz, and rock 'n roll. They welcome the opportunity to host you at the Adobe Rose Inn and make you feel welcome in their home.

I came by myself and never felt alone. What a wonderful experience for a "first timer" to Tucson. My time here was wonderful and although I am sad to leave my son at UA, I leave with a sense of retreat and relaxing that I have not experienced for a long time. I look forward to my visit in October and I look forward to my stay here at the Adobe Rose. (Glad I made reservations early!) Blessings to all who stay here. You will be well cared for.

I enjoyed very much staying here at your wonderful Adobe Rose. It was great to return from the Canyons to this place. The breakfast may only be described by a poet, since that is "culinary poetry."
We really enjoyed our 6 days at your lovely bed and breakfast. Jim and Marion, you were so helpful, interesting, and fun to know. Tucson became lovelier because of our stay here. Thank you very much. See you again!

Thanks so much for such a very pleasant and homey stay - it was quite "brilliant"! Breakfasts were delicious - when we could be bothered to get up for them. Breakfast conversations were always interesting - pancakes with intellect. What fun! Thanks for tending to and providing shade for the cacti that were bought.

I came out here to this hot, sunny, dry desert from Iceland and was welcomed in such a way that it felt like I was at home still, in my little apartment in Reykjavile. To start and adventure in a foreign country at the Adobe Rose Inn is such a warm welcome that the heat, sun, and the strangeness of it all makes the challenge easy, fun, and a very positive experience. Thank you both for a wonderful welcome at this turning point in my life.

We loved to our stay for the past 2 nights - Nogales & Tubac were just as you described - had a great time, bought loads of good stuff - your advice was right on target - enjoyed your breakfasts - Thanks for being the perfect down-to-earth hosts. We were so comfortable here. Enjoyed the Southwest décor and, of course, the pool.

The Adobe Rose Inn is the best place we have stayed at. It felt like staying at home, and it was great staying here being it was my first weeks away from home. Thanks for making my move to Tucson so much easier, for taking care of every single detail, for recommending great places to dine. Thank you such a welcoming and loving place. I will greatly miss Marion's delicious breakfasts and intelligent comments and all Jim's advice. I hope my family and friends have the opportunity to stay here some time. Thank you so much.

The Adobe Rose is definitely a home away from & Mom doesn't cook as well! (shh, don't tell!) It's always relaxing to come here and chill, instead of being stuffed in a small, stinky hotel room. We all appreciated your hospitality. We'll see you at the next Rock Show!
