    Welcome to Mon Ami Bed and Breakfast

    Mon Ami is a quiet, private, comfortable Bed & Breakfast tucked away in a Central Tucson neighborhood. Each room has a sitting area but there is also a lovely garden where guests may relax, Private entrances, private baths and many more amenities await guests at Mon Ami. From Mon Ami it is easy for guests to get to many of the sights in the city as the Inn has easy access to both east west and north south routes in Tucson.




    It is situated in a tranquil residential neighborhood with acres of unspoiled desert landscape that frame unfettered views of the Catalina Mountains. It is also close to everything!

The University of Arizona, downtown Tucson and beautiful Sabino Canyon are just 10 to 15 minutes away. If you desire an invigorating jog or relaxing stroll in the desert, they're just outside the front door.

  • Insider's Info

    Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Patricia Sparks for sharing her own secrets with!
    Why do most travelers stay at your inn?

    It is centrally located in Tucson and a good value.

    What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?

    Most guests rave about breakfast and like that the inn is very comfortable and inviting. My favorite part is having the opportunity to meet such wonderful people – B & B guests are a very special group.

    If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?

    The Sonoran Desert holds many spectacular sights. In the winter the warm sunny weather is an attraction, but in any season there is ample hiking and biking.

    What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?

    It exceeded my expectations!

    What’s the best kept secret about the area?

    The stunning mountain views, especially at dawn and dusk when the shadows are so spectacular and unexpected, as is the couple of acres of unspoiled desert right across the street in the middle of the city. The B & B is also quite close to a major wash, so occasionally, even in this very urban setting unexpected wild life may visit -- I have seen havalina, bobcats, coyotes and lost of birds. 

    If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?

    There are several parks – Saguaro National Park, Sabino Canyon, Karchner Caverns; Museums – Sonoran Desert Museum, Bioshphere II; Gardens, Tucson Botanical Garden, Tohono Chul Gardens; Observatories --Kitt Peak National Observatory, Mount Lemon Sky Center; and the University of Arizona – Mirror Lab, State of Arizona Museum, Center for Creative Photography, etc.
