Last of all we went back up on the stage and examined the "black Mariah" hearse, whish is one of only a handful still in existence and worth over a million dollars. We turned out the lights and ...
We had to stop in the desert city of Sierra Vista to get Tony Tahoe serviced and have an oil leaked looked at. Sadly the oil leak was pretty major and they would need Tony to stay in the shop overnight , we found a dodgy, smelly, noisy but cheap hotel for the night and had delicious pizza for dinner. $1500 later Tony is all fixed and we are back on the road, an expensive exercise but it's the risk you take when you buy an old car put a ton of miles on ...
... shootout at the OK Corral. Then he showed me the actual location of the shootout (around the corner from where the mostly German tourists are lied to), which is right next to the Marshal's HQ. As a historical landmark, the town remains posted in the 1800's, with lots of cool buildings and artifacts to pull you into the times. Not to mention the hired guns strutting up and down the dusty streets. We also hit up old Bisbee, which ...

After that we walked around Tombstone for a while. We saw the place called the Birdcage Theater and is one of the only original buildings still there. Everything inside the Birdcage Theater is all original from the 1800's. Inside was a tour you could take. It is only a short tour but really cool. After the tour we walked around a little bit when we heard this guy in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Copper Queen Hotel Bisbee
We spent one night here on our way to Mexico. I agree that the price was on the high side, but the place has a lot of charm (and history). We stayed in a room with two queen beds, and it was roomy. Nothing terribly exciting in terms of decor, but the beds were comfortable and the shower was good. The rooms was less charming than I expected given the decor in the lobby.
Eat there, sleep elsewhere
My husband and I visited friends in Tucson and they wanted to spend a night at the Copper Queen in Bisbee while we were sightseeing. Read mixed reviews so I wasn't surprised to spend $150+ for a smallish queen room, nothing exceptional or particularly charming. While we enjoyed Bisbee, it's not the kind of town where we'd expect to pay over $100 for a room. The hotel was okay but nothing to rave about. However, the restaurant, Winchester's, was excellent and worth the cost - about $150 for 4 people without wine or drinks. (Breakfast was fine also.) I'd recommend eating at the Copper Queen, finding a more reasonably-priced place to stay.
Charming but overpriced.
After reading J.A.Jance books that refer to the Copper Queen hotel, and seeing the charm of yesteryear I had to spend the $169 on a room. The doors seem original still with keyed locks, and a clawfoot tub. The room was spacious as it was on a corner of the building. The room was clean and quite accomodating. However, for the price the room ammenities were lacking and not comparable to even a chain hotel. This can be overlooked if price isn't an issue and you want charm and history. If you want value choose elsewhere.
Copper Queen Dining Room
We were not staying at the Copper Queen, but we decided to atleast eat there during our visit to Bisbee. It was a wonderful experience. The host and our waitress could not have been more pleasant. We did not order an appetizer, but recieved small plate with smoked salmon and caper "compliments of the chef". The main dish not only tasted great, but was beautifully presented also. My husband was too full for desert but I ordered Creme Brulee, and they brought out TWO small custard dishes, one for each of us, saying that the other desserts were a larger portion. What a pleasant surprise!! Between the staff, ambiance and food we had a really wonderfull dinner, and the price - very reasonable.
Okay but not great
The overal ambience was fun and the service was nice and helpful. However, the double rooms are small!! Hard to get around if you have more than one suitcase. Also, the water pressure was weak and the shower would change from hot to cold in a matter of seconds.. Don't think I ever got shampoo fully out of my hair. However, you are staying in old Bisbee so some of this is understandable. If you are a business traveler or traveler who needs to stay connected via the interent... then make sure to go check with the internet cafe around the corner and Wes can set you up on wireless for a small fee. Some areas of the hotel can get the wireless signal.
We stayed the night of May 12, 2004. After reading various reviews on TripAdvisor we knew that the parking was nonexistent. And so it was.
If your idea of a good hotel is a Holiday Inn, don't stay at The Copper Queen. Parking is non-existant, the floorboards squeak, the carpet is faded, it's old. But if you like hotels with character, this is the place. Odd shaped rooms, windows that actually open, a lobby that reeks with history - that is the Copper Queen.
A WONDERFUL STAY, EVEN IF IT'S HAUNTED
We came in on 10/31/03 Halloween evening and all I can say is it was one big party night. The town of Bisbee really knows how to have fun.
The Copper Queen Hotel was wonderful and the service is a+ Everyone was so friendly. I wouldnt think twice about staying here again. I look for great service and clean rooms and the Copper Queen has it and much more. Now if you are wondering about this hotel being haunted. You will have to stay and see for yourself. I know in our room on the third floor it had some strange things happening. It was a great time. Thank you all at the Copper Queen for a wonderful stay and keep up the great job.
Welcoming historical hotel.
The Copper Queen was a perfect respite for a lovely October 2003 road trip. The John Wayne room was a welcome site, all new and cheery and spaciously comfortable. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio, people watching. Its fun to go back in time when your room is updated to the now. I highly recommend this hotel.
Bisbee also has the Cafe Roka which is a must. Make your reservation when you book this special hotel. They serve wonderful food, have a delightful, competent staff and even to the exact table upstairs--our reservation was honored. That's service. Thank you Cafe Roka owner and staff.
