How to Get Here

We’re located about 20 minutes from downtown Tucson. It’s a beautiful scenic route! Go west on Speedway out of the city and continue on Gates Pass Road until it makes a T at Kinney Road. Turn left onto Kinney Road and enjoy the scenery in Tucson Mountain Park as the road dips and curves through the desert. As soon as you exit the park boundary, look for Cat Mountain Station – it’s the first business on the right and you’ll see our Roadside Inn just across the street on your left. Cat Mountain Lodge is located behind Cat Mountain Station on the right. We’re located near the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park West.
