This hotel is in a very historic town and has its roots in the former mining community. I always enjoy visits to old, quaint areas but this trip was an exception. Can find only two good things to say about this hotel (and nothing about the town). One, the view from our room was nice - we were directly across the street from Castle Rock. Two, the bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. Downsides: The entire place is shabby and rundown. But, in my opinion, the whole town was this way. Everything looked old and used up. Chairs on balcony were wobbly. Service was nothing special - everyone appeared as tired as the town. And parking - there is limited hotel parking (maybe 8-10 slots) and they are not reserved for guests. Anyone coming into town can use them - and did. After riding past the hotel into town and back again, we parked about 1/4 of a mile uphill from the hotel and walked back down. Not ideal.…
We arrived on a rainy day. Puddles of water on the floor and a leaky ceiling. Although we had paid 2 weeks in advance, we were rudely asked to step outside the office when we checked in. After about 20 minuets, we found out our room had been given to someone else. As it turned out, that was a blessing in disguise. We both found the place creepy, dank and kinda a fire trap (or in this case like it would collapse in the rain). The owner was not helpful and appeared drunk. Would definitely not recommend this place. Bisbee is a cool town with lots of other options.
bed was good, and so was breakfast, but please hire a carpenter and painter! I don,t mind smoking, but I am not sure they should allow it on that porch, beautiful location but the whole place seem rode hard and put away wet, for a buck 30?
If you want a Keurig or a plasma TV in your room, go somewhere else....it'll distract you from the natural beauty and years of man-made, fascinating historical items/structures. Exit the hotel, go LEFT, go RIGHT....it doesn't matter- the eclectic shops and architecture surround you. The hotel itself is loaded with historical items, the smell of old timbers, a staff that enjoys their work and is eager to please, a 'Silence of The Lambs'- type pit/well !! The rooms are clean, the coffee is fantastic, and the folks hanging out in their chairs posted outside the rooms make conversation easy and spontaneous. Trust me on this!! Robert Naples, FL
The Inn at Castle Rock is a really quirky place to stay. We were given interconnecting rooms for our family of five, which was helpful. The kids stayed in Old West themed room, and the decor was fun and kitschy. The facilities are a bit basic (old bathrooms etc), so if you are after something fancy and modern, this place is not for you. Having said that, it was all clean and tidy and quiet. If you like interesting places full of character, like we do, you'll enjoy it. There was a complimentary breakfast in the morning, which included vegemite for the Aussies!
