It's depressing to see how the property has deteriorated from its former greatness.
Hi there,

I am a journalism student at the University of Arizona and I am writing a story about Spanish Trail. Are you willing to talk to me about this place?

Thanks.

Thank you.
Being a relative newcomer to the area I have no stories to offer but have to add that in all my trips past the place over the past few years I've found it fascinating and have often wondered about it. Now that I know what it was called (and that so many people here have such wonderful memories of the place) I'm even MORE interested in learning more about it so I'm very happy that you folks are doing a story on it. Please let us know when it will air as I'm sure there are very many folks out there who would like to see it.

Ken

Interesting historical Arizona - vanishing - it's surprising that remnants of Spanish Trail are still there - and the old places on Miracle Mile - and just yesterday I passed the old Buckhorn Baths Motel up in Mesa.

I've lived in Tucson since 1977. One of the first things that caught my eye coming into town has to do with the Old Spanish Trail, and yet in reading three pages of posts here, not a single person has mentioned "The Little Old Railroad Train" that sat on the roof of the front of the main building.

FYI to those interested, in response to a phone call I made to the station (KGUN - channel 9 - in Tucson) I received this reply:

"This is Kevin, writing from the ABC station in Tucson.

You'd called, wanting to know when our story on the Spanish Trail Motel would air. I want to know you know it's scheduled for May 13 during our 10 p.m. newscast!"

Yes we had one of our Proms at the STHotel in the 50's. Can't remember which year but I'll guess 57. In those days it was one of the really good hotels.

I Live In Tucson, See The Sign Everyday. My Nana
& Tata Would Go There On Their Date Nights,
If I Win The Lottery I Would Bring It Back To It's GIory Day!
Or It Would Great If The City Calls For It To Be A Historical Location,
To Protect It, That Would Be Amazing!

Sadly, it's more likely to be torn down.

As an FYI, the KGUN 9 story last night didn't focus much on it's history (though it DID talk a bit about it) - mostly though it covered mainly what an eyesore it currently is.

Wow, interesting to find this site...I played there many times with my show/band "The Schillings" in the early 70's. I loved Maury Adler, he was a wonderful person. I met many famous people whenever we played there and remember fondly swimming in that wonderful pool. I recall we would play there and then head back to Lake Tahoe to play at Harveys in December...from warmth to snow...
