Tips for Choosing
Your Tombstone Arizona Lodging

Owners or managers of these types of lodging facilities often have a more personalized interest. They may live in the same building, or in an adjacent residence. They’ll be quite invested in your stay’s comfort and happiness. They’re usually friendly, people-personalities, who’ll enjoy meeting you, ensuring you get off to a satisfying start. Yet they’ll be aware of your sensibilities, as well. Not to overdo, so as to cause you discomfort, letting you alone when you desire.

When thinking about lodging you’ll want to choose in Tombstone, imagine certain questions. We’ve itemized them under headings, but it may be wise to peruse them all. Some can be applicable to all categories, depending on you.

Do You Want Historic Tombstone Lodging?

Arizona is quite a Historic State, with many preserved, vintage buildings used for lodging. Consider asking:

  • Are there elevators? And if not, how many floors must be traversed to the rooms? Are there any rooms on the first floor (if that’s a need for you)?
  • Similarly, is this building (or any rooms within) handicap accessible? If that’s a need for you.
  • If it’s Tombstone lodging, Arizona summers especially will have need for good air conditioning. Especially if you’re sensitive to heat. (See our Page on Choosing When to Visit>) Also Tombstone does get cold winter days. So consider if you have sensitivity to cold. If these are concerns, ask about the cooling and heating systems for the room.
  • Some antiquated homes-turned-lodging may not have individual bathrooms for every bedroom. Which means using shared bathrooms. If that’s important to you, ask if the room you’ll have will have its own private ensuite.

Traveling With Your Pet

Are you traveling with a pet? Definitely plan to see if they allow your 4-legged family member. They may, but charge extra. But again, they may not. Allergies are the main concern among the general population using their lodging facility, for their disallowing pets. Particularly when they’re a smaller site.

On the Other Hand: Some lodgings have their own resident furry friend. A friendly greeter who loves meeting you. Will you love meeting them? Another thing to consider, if you’re the one with an allergy, or distaste for the tailed clans.

For now, here’s our Pet Friendly Stay List>

Bed and Breakfast Tips

Bed and breakfast lodging is often more specialized and unique in their particulars. It’s often good to know some quirks ahead of time. Keep some of these questions in mind. Ask ahead if they apply:

  • Even young children aren’t welcome in some bed and breakfast lodging. They’re just not suited for the younger set, generally that means kids under 12 years of age.
  • Are you worried about keeping in touch via WiFi, or having good evening entertainment on television? Ask ahead about such electronics. Many may not have up-to-date technology available.
  • Do you have meal quirks? Gluten-free? Vegetarian? Many food styles can be accommodated within their breakfast service. But if not, and you ask ahead, then you may be offered options. Or know to get a reservation elsewhere.
  • Remember to inquire about arrival and departure times. A bed and breakfast isn’t always as 24-hour available with that, as are motels and hotels.

Vacation Rental Tips

When we travel, this is one of our favorite methods of lodging stays. You essentially get an entire apartment unit, even sometimes a little house or cabin, for less cost than hotels or motels. With all the comforts and conveniences of home. Plus even more savings by eating some meals at your “home away from home.”

We usually have breakfast in our vacation rental unit’s kitchen. Then we’ll have dinner out. Sometimes we’ll fix a picnic lunch there to take out with us. It’s almost just like being at home. What tips should you keep in mind when looking for Tombstone lodging via Arizona vacation rentals?

  • First of all, read reviews. Maybe they’re 1 or 2 disgruntled people, as you can never please everyone. But if the overwhelming majority loved it, then it should be good to go. If the likes stated what you would’ve liked, all the better. Ideally look for a minimum of six good reviews. 
  • But if you see THE ideal place to stay with no reviews yet, then call the owner with some very detailed questions before booking. (Who knows, they may offer you a discount for being one of the first to book!)
  • Be sure to read all the details about the unit carefully, to know what to expect. For instance: are the bedrooms separate, or is the bedroom incorporated into the living room and kitchen? You may want to know, especially if you have children along.
  • Know the check-in procedures and times, since they’re going to be more exacting than at hotels and motels. You may have a self-check-in with a digital lock. Or you may have to meet the manager at some unfamiliar spot. Be sure you know how to contact the right person, in case of a difficulty.
  • Preview photos, so you have familiarity with the surroundings and the lodging.
  • Know the rules of the lodging. They all have specific rules to follow.
  • When you arrive at the lodging unit, inform the host right away of any damage seen, or anything not working. It’s important to communicate quickly, rather than take possible blame for something not your doing.
  • Now relax, enjoy your trip & your Tombstone lodging, Arizona style!
