You'll Find Tombstone Motels in Walking Distance to Town
A wide variety of Tombstone lodging choices are available in walking distance to town. Drive a short distance out a bit for even more options. Prices are quite reasonable. Book accommodations to suite your desire: from very basic to unique and deluxe!
We used to be visitors ourselves, though, and we've stayed in quite a few Tombstone motels. We've always loved Tombstone, and visited as often as we could.
We're glad to have you come to town. Are you planning to book a room? We hope some of our tips can help you out.
One thing to remember is that no matter the usual rate - the rates increase at many motels during big special events days. Increases of 20%, 30%, or more - depending on the lodging. That's during Wyatt Earp Days, Helldorado Days, Vigilante Days, etc.
When we used to come to town as visitors, most times we'd stay overnight. Sometimes we'd book a Tombstone motel for a few nights. We sampled a number of lodgings. We never stayed in the same place twice.
Our family members have also stayed over in Tombstone, at a variety of spots. They've given us helpful input, and we've included that information here.
That's why we can provide you with personalized input & reviews on places to stay. In some cases we have tips on spots you won't even find on the big hotel search engines. Locals always know the little bargain places in town!
You're sure to find a clean, comfortable Tombstone motel that will fit your own needs, style and budget. So check us out - see how we can help!
Choose an In-Town Tombstone Motel
The following choices are within walking distance of "downtown" Tombstone. Always nice to be close to all you want to see and do. Plus if you like to have a few drinks - or take in some night-life, no worries about the drive!
City of Tombstone's Downtown
That's Allen Street, where all the main shops and entertainment can be found. Along with the parallel streets of Toughnut and Fremont. Plus the connecting streets: essentially downtown ranges between 3rd St. to 6th St.
Budget Host Inn - 502 E. Fremont Street. 1-800-BUD-HOST or 520-457-3478
It has historic Adobe areas dated back to 1879, and is known to have haunted areas!
Budget is a key word - no luxury here. If you're looking for a low rate, and not worried about extra amenities, look into this one.
We stayed here just before we bought our house - it was fine, clean and adequate for our needs.
Located on North Side of Fremont Street (Hwy. 92)

Clean room with the essentials.
The Larian Motel is a popular stay.
Larian Motel - 410 E. Fremont Street. (520) 457-2272

This Tombstone motel was awarded 2016 Trip-Advisor Certificate of Excellence
We've stayed here and definitely recommend it. No complaints, comfortable, reasonably priced.
T. Miller's Mercantile Hotel - 530 E. Allen Street. (520) 457-2405
4 different rooms with vintage Tombstone related decor
Billed as "no frills" - in that some normal amenities are not in the rooms. A common area is available to all with a kitchen, lounge with a TV and a nice balcony overlooking the action on Allen Street
Rooms are nice, comfortable, clean with either 1 or 2 queen beds
2 of the rooms have a shared bathroom, 2 have a private bath - all priced reasonable and accordingly. Private, free off-street parking
It has a new owner from when it was called The Silver Nugget. So if you see reviews for that, these are no longer applicable
As we were closing on our house in town, we stayed here in the "Oriental Room." It was comfortable enough, with it's own private bath. We loved the balcony, being able to relax outside and watch everyone below. I think they could have nicer seating out there though!

Trail Rider's Inn - 13 N 7th Street. (520) 457-3573
Very basic motel, rooms are small with 2 Queen-size beds and Western decor
Parking outside your door
We've stayed here. It was comfortable enough. Some reviews quote the bathroom as small & that is the main flaw, we'd say. We also found the hot water was a little inadequate when we were there, running tepid toward the end of a 2nd shower. That was about 15 years ago - I don't know if they've improved that situation. (If you stay - we'd appreciate your more recent feedback.)

Great rates! If you're looking for a good deal in a Tombstone motel, a stay with over-all good to excellent reviews, and a place with character - you should try this one. After all, you're not visiting Tombstone to be pampered at Trump Towers! You're here to walk into town to enjoy the sights, interact with locals (try the Crystal Palace) & enjoy the history. This is the place to be!
This is a terrific book about Tombstone AZ, it's background, it's very being. It's called "Too Tough To Die" - The Rise, Fall, and Resurrection of a Silver Camp; 1878 to 1990. I consult it all the time for information. It really covers so much about why our town is the town that it is. It's a good resource for the background of this historic place. Lots of authentic, historic photographs - many that you may have never seen. You may want to check it out...

Maybe you like a full Vacation Rental - just like home! All of these types of lodgings are available in the Tombstone area - if you prefer that to a Tombstone motel...
