Travel Blogs from Bisbee
We got an early start from Albuquerque, pulling out of the driveway at 0700. Once we had cleared the city it became evident that there wasn't much between Querky and Tombstone, our eventual destination.
We didn't get any photos of the drive, mainly because my co pilot and navigator was either asleep or having minor freakouts as we passed through several very mountainous areas.
We arrived in Tombstone dead on 4:30pm, ...
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 ...
... Black Friday must be hell here for the workers..."Shootout on aisle 5"
All in all, it was mission accomplished and all lights to the border were green. It was a lotta fun hanging out with Delaney, and will definitely hafta spend more time in Bisbee later. Rob gave me all the info I needed for crossing over to Mexico, and away I went. Adios Estados Unidos.

Tombstone... I love it here and if you are ever in this part of the world it is a must visit. The original buildings, the people, Boothill, The Crystal Rooms, OK Corral, six-shooters, etc and it is all such recent history, fantastic.
Arrived quite shattered after the run from Portal and headed straight out for a Wild West beer tour; Crystal Rooms, Big Nose Kates (where the barmaid was actually wearing a gun on her hip!), steaks and more bars! ...
... question was posed in my mind, should the US leave some lights on? Should they maybe even open the gate a little? Is it always harmful to welcome our neighbors in?
The reality is complex, and the US is not simply a house that can welcome or deny visitors. I was able to experience both sides of the story, the pushing and pulling forces. I saw a boarder factory that paid workers less than $70 USD per week. I saw why people would be driven ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel San Ramon Bisbee
Direzione cordiale, posizione comoda
Questo hotel si trova vicino all'hotel Copper Queen. È vecchio ma molto bello. Ho parlato con Tamara per la prenotazione che è stata molto gentile. Anche se alloggiavamo nella più piccola di sei camere, c'erano dei piccoli tocchi di classe graditi come biscotti freschi, una bottiglia d'acqua, biscotti per il caffè al Bisbee Coffee Co. dall'altra parte della strada. Il rumore esterno può infastidire durante eventi speciali cittadini, ma per noi non è stato un problema. Era divertente stare in un hotel non standard. Spero che riusciate a prenotare online perché io ho avuto problemi a ricevere il segnale sul cellulare per chiamare. Prezzi ragionevoli.
Friendly management, convenient location
Hotel is next to the Copper Queen Hotel. It's old but quaint. I spoke with Tamara to make reservation and she was very friendly. Even though we stayed in the smallest of the six rooms, there were nice touches like fresh cookies, bottled water, chips for coffee at the Bisbee Coffee Co. across the street. Outdoor noise might annoy during special town events, but we weren't bothered. It was fun to stay in a non-standard hotel. Wish you could book online since I had trouble getting a cell phone signal to call. Reasonable rates.
Gerencia amable, bien situado
El hotel está al lado del Copper Queen Hotel. Es antiguo, pero pintoresco. Hablé con Tamara para hacer la reserva y fue muy amable. Aunque nos alojamos en la más pequeña de las seis habitaciones, había toques bonitos, como cookies recién hechas, agua embotellada, fichas para un café en el Bisbee Coffee Co., que está en la calle de enfrente. El ruido de fuera puede ser molesto durante eventos especiales de la ciudad, pero a nosotros no nos molestó. Fue divertido alojarse en un hotel atípico. Ojalá se pudiera reservar en línea, ya que tuve problemas para conseguir línea por el móvil para llamar. Tarifas razonables.
A Great Weekend
It was our 37th wedding anniversary and we always wanted to go to Bisbee to see what it was like. We decided on the Hotel San Ramon based on the reviews we read in TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed in the least. The rooms were exceptional. We wanted room #5 for Friday night but it was booked but room #1 was available so we took it. It was fantastic. Saturday room #1 was booked but #5 was available so we took that. Once again the room was fantastic. I couldn't say anything negitive about the San Ramon if I tried. Tamara had champagne and flowers waiting for my wife when we arrived on Friday and everything was just perfect. If you ever go to Bisbee you have to stay at the Hotel San Ramon. Plus the fact that the restaurant in the same building called Santiago's is a great place for a casual dinner. I would definitely give the San Ramon a "10".
Great overall experience, but you might need earplugs
Great experience! Staff was extremely friendly during reservation and checkin and gave us lots of advice what to do and where to go. The room (no. 5) was perfect, modern and stylish, everything including the bathroom was very clean. From the "comfy point of view" clearly 5 out of 5.
One minus, however, for some noise problems: Didgeridoo player on the street at 2 AM, music from the bar (?) at 2:30 AM, guitar player somewhere in the house woke me up at 8 AM, air conditioning noise from adjacent room every few minutes - but that's probably to expect when booking such a convenient downtown location in an old building. With earplugs you'll be fine - and prices are incredibly low.
Our room was large, clean, with high ceilings and newly remodeled throughout. Great touches like a jar of chocolate chip cookies on the night stand. The San Ramon has a good location just down the hill from the Copper Queen, but much more intimate and private with only 6 rooms. My husband and I thought the San Ramon was better than hotels we've stayed in for twice the price. We will definitely be back!
I noticed that this last guest responded that they didn't like the lack of coffee or wireless in the rooms. We do in fact have hi-speed wireless internet. I am terribly sorry if you weren't notified of that, or if maybe it wasn't working for some reason. We will always do our best to remedy such things on the spot if it's brought to our attention.
Also, you should have been given tokens for coffee at the Bisbee Coffee Company. If you weren't, again, my sincere apologies for the oversight. We chose this option over in-room coffee because it's SO much better than any of that pre-packaged stuff. ;o) We hope that you will consider visiting us again, and please bring this note to my attention. We'll be sure to do our best to make amends.
We recently stayed at the San Ramon in Bisbee, Az. It is located in downtown Bisbee in the famed Brewery Gluch area. This is an awesome place to stay. Only 5 rooms but very clean, not typical hotel decor and very quaint. It was a real treat to find this treasure and the people were very helpful. Would recommend this to everyone.
The rooms are newly updated, clean, spacious and bright, with a manager/owner that is friendly and available. The A/C is state-of-the-art and very quiet. All rooms are reasonable priced for Bisbee. An EXCELLENT restaurant "Santiago's" is just a few steps from your room.
