Trail Rider's Inn Motel
Ranked #5 of 9 Hotels in Tombstone
Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

I'll start off saying we came to party and have fun! After a night at the saloons we came back to our room and received a few complaints. I guess we didn't realize the walls are paper thin. You can literally hear the tv next door. The next morning the owner told my friend to give a biker, 20$ as a bribe cause his sleep was disturbed. I thought that was unprofessional. When we reserved our rooms we were told they were 82$ a night after tax. When we checked in it was 97$ and were told we were misquoted. The rooms were clean and comfortable even though we did find a roach. After we came home we realized they charged our card an additional 20$, they never explained that charge to us or told us they were going to charge us for anything. If I ever go back to tombstone or know anyone who does, I will advise them not to stay here unless you came to sleep or whisper..

Planned a quick one night stay on spring break with my family. Also talked a neighbor into joining us on the trip. Really excited about seeing Tombstone, and having kids experience an actual "motel" versus the usual Marriotts. Booked two rooms next to each other. one for the wife and I, and the other for the 3 boys, oldest 16, and twin 10 year old boys. The rooms are not adjoining, but they are next to each other so all is good. Or so we thought. After the drive from Phoenix were looking forward to checking in and getting out to Big Nose mates for dinner. Upon checkin we are told that the owner gave away our room to a large group of bikers (I'm ok with bikers,had a Harley for years), so that they could be close to ash other. We are then shown to the room for the kids, which was outside of the normal U-shaped Motel property, past two trailers one with a barking pit bull, past the dumpster and into this little room right on the highway. The woman showing us was very kind and apologetic, and kept saying she was sorry, but it was the owner who did it, and he was off for the night. There was no way we were splitting up our family. They did offer to try to find us other accommodations, but we also had the friends and his family, and it would be too much to ask them to leave also.
Finally I was introduced to the owners wife, she too was very nice and upset with the situation. She offered me the second room for free, a savings of $60.00. I explained that as much as I appreciated this gesture, it was more about the vacation, and this night was clearly ruined, my wife was upset, etc.
As for the actual motel, it is very rustic. It is clean also. The beds are acceptable but their were holes in the blankets etc.. The heaters put out a smell, and I did notice there was a holder for a smoke alarm, but no smoke alarm. Electrical was the typical old building without outlets, lots of plugs into one, sand rewiring. Shower was a challenge, very small and either scalding, or cold. I must say our friends room was nicer than either of ours. I would steer clear of room 14, as it is really off the main property by a dumpster and across the street from a building where a bunch of guys in orange jumpsuits were hanging out. They all had "ADOC" on them.
We all laughed at the sign in the office asking guests not to swim with open soars or diarrhea. It also requested that if you were incontinent, that you should wear tight fitting swim trunks. Well that pretty much guaranteed we would pass on the pool.
They put out coffee and orange juice for the guests in the morning, along with some donuts, all a nice gesture unless it runs out before you have yours. Sorry not early risers on vacation.
In a nutshell, the ladies are nice, the place is clean, but very rustic. I can't recommend this place to families because of their decision to separate us to keep adults close together. If this is important to you, choose another property.

I can't say that we had high hopes while making reservations in Tombstone just given the size of the town. We were pleasantly suprised by Trail Rider's Inn Motel. The room was basic, but clean and we were lucky enough to get one with both mini-fridge and microwave. Our friends room nextdoor had microwave only. It is kind of a bummer that you can only get ice from the office that closed around 8:00 both nights we were there. There was no noise from the neighbors, but we were also in an end room. Not much to speak of for in-room ammenities; hand soap and a full size bottle of body wash...not sure if that was provided or left by previous guest. The continental breakfast is a nice gesture, but nothing to boast about.
Can't beat the price and location; the few encounters we had with the staff were pleasant, but make sure you're ready to go right at check out. The housekeeper was in our room as we were still loading up the car!

Room Tip: Room #10 was and end room and had both mini-fridge and microwave, but room #9 had much larger TV!

Hospitality runs this cute property and we never want to leave! Paul and Lauren embody the spirit of owning and operating a nice Inn. Friendly and helpful they truly want you to enjoy your time here in town. It's located within walking distance of the historic district of Tombstone which is quite convenient. And when you're back at the Inn the experience of quaint tourist hospitality continues.
The amenities:

It's so cozy here we will always recommend this as the must-stay hotel for visiting Tombstone.
Thanks again Lauren for being genuine and friendly for my birthday stay.

We stopped during a recent trip to Tombstone. The owner was a great lady who personally took us to our room. We were in room 15 which had a full and Queen sized bed. The room was a little cramped, but it was immaculately clean. The bathroom had been remodeled and was quite nice. There was hot fresh coffee outside of the Office starting at 6am. Overall, a pleasant stay in Tombstone.

Lauren is an incredible Innkeeper and although Paul was away this trip, we know he does his part too to keep this Inn running, clean, and in great shape. We love staying at Trail Riders and do so every time we come to Tombstone and have been for years! It's close to the action but not to close. Both Lauren and Paul are always around if you need anything and help you out with a smile. Great pool and jacuzzi....really just an overall great experience every time for the past 4 years!

Trail Rider's Inn has been a great stop on our rushed trip from one coast to the other. The room was spacious and clean, the motel was only a 5 min walk from the main street of the town. Also it was a very cold night and it was really nice having the heat not just in the room, but in the bathroom, too. The owner was super pleasant and we enjoyed talking to her. And the price was very reasonable, too. We really wished we had more time in Tombstone!
