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.
The Only place to stay 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.
What a Relief
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.
We pulled into this clean, campy little motel named the Larian. The place was tidy, clean on the exterior but the dreaded moment came when our son opened the door to "Our Room". My husband the "Inspector" walked in first, he was shocked, it was not only spotless, nicely furnished with soutwestern style furniture, but it was like new inside, non-smoking and fresh. The bed and bath linens were good quality with one of those small easy to use coffeepots to revive us in the a.m.; plus a little fridge for my water and fruit. We meant the owner, who was very cordial and we found he was raised in Tombstone and knew all the interesting places and information that we find is a real plus when traveling. The Larian Motel was located about 1/2 a block from the mainstreet of Tombstone and was quiet and friendly. This motel even had benches to sit and enjoy the people who stayed there, the owner had seemed to think of everything. We appreciated this small motels family feeling and the knowledge of this real Tombstonian. Our familys thanks for a great place to stay!!
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.

We spent almost the entire day at Tombstone. Loved it. Lots of fun. Managed to get one of the few rainy days they have per year! Stopped at Boothill Cemetery first as it was on the way into town and it wasn't raining just yet. Some interesting headstones. Took the horse and carriage street tour, which gave us a history reminder and we could get our bearings. Then checked out the original Birdcage Theatre. Very cool old original theatre interior. And ...
... basement, where the more pricey soiled doves did rtheir trade. The basement was also the location of the longest continuous poker game in history, damn game lasted over 8 years and something in the order of $10 million changed hands.
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 ...
I hadn't slept too well due to an upset stomach, so rising at 9am was tough, but I got moving. I found a local grocery store and got some breakfast. Tombstone was only a 20 min drive from where I was staying. The landscape started flat and dull, but soon enough, I was in amongst rolling hills, and there it was. Tombstone. The hills around the town just oozed old and pioneering. Old fences and houses. Bulky, rusting mining equipment ...

Decided to get a really early start tomorrow morning. Planning on being on the road tomorrow by 6AM. We'll see, we always have good intentions, but...
To the knitting group tonight, thanx for tagging along on the trip, enjoy hearing from you. To my group tomorrow, thinking of you, and YES I am getting my protein and vitamins in. Always! wonder if I should quit taking my vitamin D for a while? NOT.
... of midievel torture, and of coarse "The Thing". Now what the heck is "The Thing"? Well as far as I can tell, it is either a mummified Indian or a faked (albeit old) carny prop such as the famous frozen ape man, or sea monkey skeleton, or two headed calf. Of coarse, it could be also be an alien mummy from outer space! (queue Twilight Zone theme) ; ) Anyway, it was worth the $1 admission price and the Dairy Queen Banana Split Blizard I got. The adventure ...
