“What a pretty place to stay...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2009

We wanted to stay a nite in Tombstone and found the Tombstone Boarding House. Sylvia, the owner, did everything to make sure our needs were met. We ate dinner at the Lamplight and the staff bent over backwards for us. We stayed in the Red Room, quaint, lovely period decorations. The rooms are a little worn, consequent to their age, but absolutely spotless! We enjoyed our stay here tremendously!

Cute little place across the main drag of old Tombstone. We stayed in the red room which was very secluded and romantic. It was small and just the right size for my sweetie and I. Its very quiet at night - we slept like babies. Breakfast the next morning was a GREAT way to start the day in the Lamplight Tea Room while the owner served us. We are definitely going to be back there soon.

We stayed in the white room and had the Lovers Indulgence Package. The room was small but clean and cute. It was very easy to walk to the main street in Tombstone. Chips and dip and ice tea were brought to our room as soon as we arrived. There were free soft drinks while we were there. The Lovers Indulgence Package also included champagne, chocolates, flowers and bath products. We had breakfast served in bed and that was a wonderful experience. Sylvia is a great host and the food was delicious. We also ate at the Lamplight Room Restaurant next door. The food was GREAT, the service was WONDERFUL, and the guitar player was FABULOUS! I would stay here again.

My husband and I stayed two nights in the Green Room at the Tombstone Boarding House. The Green Room is on the end, with a big window looking out at the house across the street, mostly. The room is tiny but well appointed, with a little sink in an alcove, and a tiny separate shower/toilet room. There is a comfortable queen bed, a dresser and a wardrobe. The furniture is all antique and the room is very tastefully decorated. Once we got over the smallness of the place (and stowed our suitcases in the car) we were quite comfortable.

Sylvia has strict rules about the time: Coffee is served at 7:30 (well, 8:00 one morning) and breakfast at 8:30 - no exceptions, even though we were the only guests. Well, we've stayed at a lot of B&B's and the innkeepers have to have their lives too. The breakfast was very, very nicely prepared and presented. Both days we started with fruit and juice, and then had a main course, prepared hot and fresh. Sylvia kept us company while we ate, and gave us lots of good information about the area.

On the whole, it was a good experience. After seeing the other choices in Tombstone, I'm pretty sure that if we went back we would stay at Tombstone Boarding House again.

My boyfriend took me here to celebrat the 4th. Our room was beautiful, clean, and we loved the claw-foot bathtub! We enjoyed the privacy and the "laid back" atmosphere here. Sylvia is such a wonderful lady. We ate at the Lamlight for dinner and it was excellent. The wait staff get very busy but everyone is very friendly and attentive. Everything was fresh and tastey. Breakfast at the B&B was absolutely perfect! We were in walking distance of Tombstone and enjoyed the historical information the staff at the B&B had to share to enhance our stay. They even gave us advice on the best renactment to check out (Thanks to Bonnie!). We enjoyed sitting on the bench outside our room and watching the fireworks on the 4th. I would not only stay here again, but I would recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy Tombstone!

We stayed there for 3 days. Breakfast was wonderful each morning and served at 8:30 sharp. Coffee and orange juice flowed freely. Every morning was a little different. We also made reservations for the Friday night meal and it was probably the best we had in all of Tombstone. So far as I know all the rooms have separate bathrooms and air conditioners. We used it as a base of operations to walk around Tombstone a little each day but also to branch out to Kartchner Cavern and some nearby ghost towns. Sylvia, the proprieter, was able to make many recommedations for the local area as well places to see in Tombstone itself. My wife and I thought it was wonderful and are considering another trip next year.

Stayed at the Tombstone Boarding House B&B while in Tombstone (2 nights). The owner, Sylvia, was a great hostess. She cooks and serves a big, delicious breakfast. She was very helpful and full of information about the area. Our room (the Red Room) was neat, clean and comfortable. Located off the main drag in a quiet area. Would absolutely recommend this spot and would stay there again!
