Activities/Attractions: "The Town too Tough to Die," Tombstone was perhaps the most renowned of Arizona's old mining camps. When Ed Schieffelin came to Camp Huachuca with a party of soldiers and left the fort to prospect, his comrades told him that he'd find his tombstone rather than silver. Thus, in 1877 Schieffelin named his first claim the Tombstone, and rumors of rich strikes made a boomtown of the settlement that adopted this name.

Tombstone, Arizona is located between the Dragoon and Huachuca mountains on a beautiful high mesa. During its boom period Tombstone was notorious for its brothels, saloons, and gambling houses and is also known for the famous Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday shoot-out against the Clanton's in the 1880s.

Many of Tombstone's historic buildings are within an area bounded by Fremont, 6th, Toughnut and 3rd streets. Among them are St. Paul's Episcopal Church, built in 1882; the Crystal Palace Saloon, one of the most luxurious saloons in the West; and the Tombstone Epitaph building, where the oldest continuously published paper in Arizona is still being printed. Western printing history exhibits in the front office are free to the public.

Truly a Historical American Landmark, Tombstone is America's best example of our 1880 western heritage, which is well preserved with original 1880's buildings and artifacts featured in numerous museums.

"After exactly one month traveling across the continent and back again to the east coast, Trail Raider's Inn was the best place we slept. The people working there was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and nice, and a beautiful outside area with a pool made the motel to a very relaxing place to stay."

"If you are looking for the cleanest, most conveniently located motel in Tombstone the Trail Riders Inn is the place. Paul and Lauren are great hosts and they have obvious pride in their property. Being just 2 blocks from all the action meant we just parked our car for the weekend and walked to all the attractions."

"Why pay the cost of a "chain" motel when you can stay at The Trail Rider's Inn for half the price, but get the same quality. All rooms are extremely clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Also located 5 mins walk to downtown Allen Street. We highly recommend this motel. Do not look any further."

"So while driving in town we happened across this quaint and cozy little Place called the Trail Riders Inn. It was perfect for us and just a 2 minute walk into town. The owners were so friendly and generous and helpful, we ended up staying 4 nights instead of 2. It was our first trip to Tombstone and we can't wait to go back and our first stop will be the Trail Riders Inn!"

"I loved staying at this hotel. It is walking distance to all the fun stuff in Tombstone. The owners Paul, and Lauren are great! They are friendly, and so are the employees! The hotel is clean, and has a warm cozy feeling, and the pool is great!"

"This is a great place to stay. The hosts are fantastic and directed us to the best places in town to eat, drink, shop, tour, and watch the shoot 'em ups! We felt like we were visiting our best friends - and we were only there 2 nights! By far - the best place to stay in Tombstone!"
