Hi Alicia, Hotels get very crowded during the Tucson gem shows; it
would be better to have a reservation before you go. Look on the
travel websites like Orbitz or Travelocity for a hotel around Casa
Grande, AZ; that’s along I10 and about an hour outside of Tucson.
Most of the hotels you’ll find along I10 between Phoenix and Tucson
will be the less expensive chains which won’t charge as much as the
hotels in Tucson.
