Larian Motel Tombstone
Travel Blogs from Tombstone
Arrived in Tombstone around 1pm. We checked into the Larian Motel, a real Mom&Pop motel! It was highly rated on Trip Advisor, and although it doesn't look like much from the outside, it is very nice and clean, with everything we could want, except for a screen door (we have a thing for screen doors on rooms...). Since it is only 1 block away …
Today we drove 3 hours from Phoenix to the small town of Bisbee - known for its huge copper mines. We booked in to do a mine tour and while we were waiting shot down the road to see the huge open case copper mine. Very similar to the one in New Zealand (name escapes me!) and just as impressive. Then we went into the 'old' Bisbee township to get …
After a cooked breakfast we headed off on the long drive to Tombstone, Arizona. It was about an 8 hour drove, plus stops. The landscape is very different in Arizona. Mountains of rocks for miles and miles (yeas it is miles in America). Then all of a sudden you are driving on flat desert-like plains. We saw lots of cactii along the plains. We even …
... me, I told her that I'd love it if she took a bit of hair from around his mouth. She finally quit grooming when it was almost time for them to leave for an orchestra concert in Phoenix and assured me that she wanted to finish in the morning.
We had thought to leave early that afternoon, but ended up accepting Lacie's invitation to park by their house and plug into their electric. Sure enough, Lacie finished ...
... It took
him a week to recover so we decided to stay another week here….so glad we did.
We have been to Queen Copper Mine in Bisbee (2/13/14). It is
a lateral mine and we went 1700 feet into the mine and learned a lot from our
guide who has been mining for over 21 years. It was dark and chilly. They
suited us up with a raincoat, hardhat and miners head lamp and off we went.
Karchner Caverns was our next destination ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Larian Motel Tombstone
Great time in Tombstone!
Took the advice of others on TripAdvisor, and was not disappointed. Great location, friendly and accommodating owner, clean, nice sized room. I would recommend the Larian to anyone staying in Tombstone.
The best place to stay in Tombstone
The Larian is my favourite place to stay in Tombstone.I've stayed in three different hotels in Tombstone over the years,and the Larian was the best suited for me.It is ideally located in that you are staying right in town and you can walk to local attractions.It's on Fremont St.which runs parallel to Allen St.the main street in town,where the saloons and shops are, so it also offers a quiet retreat,after a hard day touring of the shops and bars.
Gordon is a friendly host and his staff are very helpful,the rooms are clean,large and comfortable.I spent 2 months in the US this summer,and stayed at the Larian on three seperate occasions.It's the next best thing to home for me,while I'm staying in Tombstone.
If you are ever in Tombstone, the place you want to stay is the Larian Motel. I am a single woman who travels the world over and I have stayed in many fine establishments, but NEVER have I stayed in a CLEANER room in my life! Believe me, I'm a "princess" and I wont stay in ANY "icky" places! The motel is vintage in its design, and each room has a name from the history Tombstone. I stayed in the Clanton room. The room was SO clean, plenty of towels, coffeemaker, blow dryer,TONS of hot water and windows you can open for fresh air! The staff is excellent and attentive, but the best gem of all is the proprietor, Gordon Anderson. This is the heart and soul of this operation, and he is such a great guy! He will tell you what there is to do in town, where to eat, what to try. He rocks! Trust me, this is THE place to stay.
Great place to stay
good clean large rooms at a great rate. Management very good and helpful. Within a few minutes walk of all attractions, well above our expections.
No reason to stay anywhere else, period...!
Our ninth visit here in Tombstone, guess where we stayed again? The Larian motel is without question the best place to stay in Tombstone.
Large rooms, very clean & up to date. Coffe pot, mini fridge very comfortable beds and smoke free!
We arrived in july 2005, I made a mistake making our reservations, upon arrival I found out we were a day early. This is peak time here in Tombstone & we had no place to stay.
Of course Gordon (owner manager etc..) would not let us sleep in the car ..so to speak. Unfortunatly his motel was full, Gordon went out of his way and called his competitors until he got us a room for the night..now thats good service!!!!
Motel is walking distance to the OK Corral and all events, you can't go wrong with the LARIAN!
We stayed for two nights and enjoyed ourselves from the time we arrived until we left. We stayed in "Doc Holidays" room and found it to be clean and tidy. Little disappointed that there was no fridge in the room to put drinks or food. We had a small child who was still bottle fed so I was unable to make the bottles up the night before I had to do it in the morning before we went out. Also no jug to make a "cuppa", they did have a coffee machine, so I just removed the coffee part and boiled the coffee pot that way. Overall, it was a great place to stay, owner was very accomodating and helpful. We would stay there again, it is so close to town and food venues. LOVED TOMBSTONE!
A great place to stay
Good, clean, comfortable rooms. Within walking distance to Allen Street, restaurants and other amenities. Would definitely stay here again. Loved the Motel and loved Tombstone.
Like my 3 night visit in September 2002 my 2005 stay at the Larian Motel was met with a most obliging owner and staff, the room was always very very clean and well maintained. A great place to stay at like the Larian makes ones visit to such a town like Tombstone all the memorable.
Our Retired Army/Marine son called us and told us he had motel reservations inTombstone, AZ. so we could visit our grandkids. My husband and I looked at each other knowing full well our son squeezes every dollar till it screams. We had great apprehension when he told us the name of the motel and it wasn't anything familiar to us, but we left Phoenix for Tombstone, and prayed alot.
Pulled into the Larian on our Harley before they had a chance to clean the rooms but they allowed us to drop our luggage off in our room and start touring the town. Gave great information on where to eat and were truly interested in how we were enjoying our stay with them. Rooms were clean and comfortable. They were always busy but would stop what they were doing to give us information or directions.
