At the Trail Rider’s Inn we found comfortable hand-sewn quilts which adorned the comfy beds in each room. A cozy seating area, combined with good TV reception to provide a wonderfully relaxing evening after a day of history and sightseeing in Tombstone. Rooms were priced from just $45 per night (double) and at those prices, we (three couples -- me and my husband, my sister and brother in-law, and our friends Claude and Nancy from Minnesota) found that we could enjoy a very comfortable stay AND have breakfast at one of the lovely nearby restaurants for less than the price of staying home. Everything was extremely clean and the service was both friendly and professional. Direct dial telephones and free morning coffee were also appreciated.
The days we visited (December 2 and 3) offered bright sunshine with temperatures in the mid-40’s to low 50’s. Locals discussed the current "freezing-sub normal temperatures" while our friends from Minnesota found the temperature -- almost "balmy" and sincerely appreciated the lack of the need to "dig-out."
Within easy walking distance from the historic area and the notorious saloons, gambling houses and the O.K. Corral we felt that the Trail Rider‘s Inn offered a much appreciated "travel bargain" and should be famous for its pleasant and comfortable rooms, inviting atmosphere and a wonderful staff that fulfilled our every need.
