Howdy partners, before heading out from our cheap motel we took the chance to grab some pictures in front of the Worlds largest Chili which sits outside the reception.
It was while grabbing these pics that we learnt that the motel once had Clint Eastwood as a guest during his 1967 filming of "Hang 'Em High". To be fair i don't think they …
... Fleetwood people and they were checking on it. We still are working the reduced pressure in the kitchen faucet. Barbie and I went into town and got a replacement part but it was the wrong one so we will return it. There is an RV service place down the road so David stop there when he returns the parts.
We have had wonderful meals (Barbie's an ...
I got home on the 30th of July.
My computer started behaving badly and has been in the shop since.
I am glad to be here - I have not been home during monsoon season in a long time. I had forgotten how dramatic the storms are.
When I got home the cable TV was out (my house sitter does not watch TV). The company fixed that but broke the internet in the process. It is all ...
... we visited the graveyard at Boot Hill. The boys were amazed at all the people who were killed back then and also in the number of "Unknown" people buried there. Who were they? We headed out about 2:30., stopping for the night in Ft Stockton and then on to Katy. Reflecting on our 18 day adventure, I don't have too many words but will say these: To those who are Empty Nesters - consider taking your grand kids on trips out of town to neat places - ...

I was feeling seriously tiered so didn't drink anymore, shared one bifter with Lee, everyone went out and I used the opportunity to have my Thai Salad and chilled. Went straight to bed and more or less slept straight through apart from being woken up once by someone and then Anthony and Lee bursting into the room about 8am telling me about their nights, I told'em to **** off and let me sleep, they did, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Landmark Lookout Lodge Tombstone
My husband and I stayed here by chance. We decided to stay overnight in Tombstone because we arrived in the later afternoon and most of the places to see were closed or closing for the night. The front desk clerk was very nice. The room we had was non smoking and was on the second floor with a good view. I was pleasantly surprised because we stayed at two other Best Western's during this vacation and had almost decided to never to stay at another ever again. The other two weren't so great.
Never stay there again
We stayed at the Best Western-Tombstone in January and very dissapointed. The motel is very old and the room was very outdated. The pool was not heated and the staff was very rude. You are much better off staying at the Holiday Inn Express next door which looks brand new.
Stayed there Tuesday night, March 29th. We had driven there from Roswell NM which is a long drive and we were tired and hungry. The first question I asked the desk person was if they had a restaurant and a bar on the premises. He said yes. After I paid with my credit card and was ready to walk out of the office he said they only served beer and wine...which neither of us drink...and that they only had "finger" foods...like pizza and chicken strips. He should have told me those details when I asked. Then I told him I didn't want to stay there and I wanted my credit card credited and I would go somewhere else and he said he couldn't remove the charge because he didn't know how to do it and it couldn't be done until morning...yada yada yada. We stayed because we felt that we might be charged even if we didn't stay. The lighting in the room was very dim...must be the lowest watt bulbs available. There were cigarette butts in the ash tray from the former occupant. Oh, I needed to access the internet to make flight reservations home and the charge was 20 cents a minute. My husband and I belong to the Best Western Gold Crown frequent guest membership and on this Southwest trip we stayed at five other Best Westerns in Santa Fe, Phoenix, Roswell, Sedona and Tuscon and all the other Best Westerns graciously allowed me to use their internet service at no charge. The next day the owner of a gift shop in Tombstone told us the nicest and least expensive place to stay is a family owned motel that's within walking distance of everything...the name was something like Landrys, I think. We didn't stay in Tombstone another night or we would have stayed at that place. I was told it's family owned and the owners take great pride in the place. My recommendation...forget the Tombstone Best Western!
We recently stayed at the Tombstone Best Western. We also found it to be an average older motel with a pretty rock garden and a western homey feel. We were also very disappointed that the firepits were not lit. Reservations were made online. I requested a non-smoking room but was aware that this was considered a "special request" and was not guaranteed. We got a smoking room that was stuffy and had a VERY smoky smell - much worse than most smoking rooms. Room lighting was barely adequate. Breakfast was ok. While we were eating breakfast, an older women asked to use the office bathroom because the toilet in their room was out of order. The desk clerk replied in an unsympathetic way that there wasn't an office bathroom and said that maintence had been called to fix their toilet - she didn't say when they could expect it to be fixed or offer to let them use a room that was vacant. If we go to Tombstone in the future, we will stay elsewhere.
I spent last Monday night at the Tombstone Best Western. I found it to be an average (older) motel with a pretty rock garden and (some) friendly clerks. However we had some disappointments. Our main reason for picking BW was the firepits and pool. Well, the "heated" pool was not warm enough to take a dip, plus that area was dark. (Try Esplendor at Rio Rico, now that is what heated should be). We returned from dinner at 7:30 and neither pit was lit. What a disappointment as we had planned to sit outside by the warmth and view the stars. Instead we ended up in our room watching Raymond reruns...not much to do in TS at night. Also our bed was very uncomfortable so we had a bad night's sleep. Breakfast was about average. The atmosphere had a western homey feel but for those who do not need a pool I would go with the less expensive TS motel or the Larian. If you do, I would definately try the Holiday Inn next door.
Great place to stay! Very recommended
This is an awesome place. I've stayed here twice and will definitely go back again. The rooms are very comfortable, and the views are fantastic. The desk staff is courteous and helpful. I made a mistake on an on-line reservation, and the staff was happy to honor the reservation, even though I showed up a day early. The place has a real friendly vibe. The outdoor areas invite people to talk to each other. There are two fire pits plus a nice walking trail.
This motel was great!! The view was wonderful the people were great. We got there early and they still let us have the room. Met some other people that were traveling and they were so nice. The room was totally clean and it was more than we expected after staying in the Best Western in Alamogorda Best Western. (it was a dump) Would stay again there anytime.
A different kind of hotel
We stayed one night, with reservations that had been made months in advance. Late check in was no problem. The whole hotel at night is kinda spooky , howling coyotes and all. I loved the stone walls and the beds were very comfortable. When my husband had to traipse up to the front desk for ice late at night he said he got this "Bates Motel" vibe...but we did enjoy the hotel. The continental breakfast was doable, no complaints. I read a blip saying the hotel was "within walking distance" of the all the action....NOT..unless you like to drag around small children on the side of the road...We would definitely book this hotel again.
I had reserved 2 specific rooms,2 mths.in advance,when we arrived they told us that theydid not put a note next to my request and they were sorry that the rms were already taken....this was a special trip with my family....then the rms they did give us did not have 2 beds as i requested,so they gave us a cott...They did not even offer to give us a discount after all this......I was very disappointed with this lodge....We will never stay there again!!!!
A warm welcome
We spent two nights at this hotel. It's in a great location with wonderful views. The new owner, Inder Sandhu, is trying very hard to make the hotel an attractive destination. The hotel was basic, but clean, and the staff made every effort to make us comfortable. They have fire pits where guests are welcome to gather in the evening and it was a great opportunity to exchange travel information with other guests.
