I have heard that it's hard to get a good night's sleep at many of the hotels in Bisbee because of the street noise, especially on weekends. So i sought a quiet place to stay for my boyfriend and I. The Copper City Inn seemed to fit the bill, and based on all the rave reviews, my boyfriend and I decided to stay here for our 1 night in Bisbee. Location was fine, no complaints there. Our Room (The Coulter room) was very well maintained and clean. Lovely bedding, and comfy bed. Loved the headboard too! As others have mentioned, the free wine was a great touch and much appreciated. I have no complaints with the room itself. It was great. My big problem was with the lack of privacy. The Coulter room is right next to the Louis room. The doors to each room are only inches apart. They share a common wall and the walls are PAPER thin. This is bad. We could hear every single word of conversation that came out of our neighbor's mouths as if they had been right there in our room with us. I was very bummed out about the noise level here. When we first walked into our room, our neighbors were blasting their tv. It was so loud in our room that my boyfriend and i could barely talk. Every little sneeze, cough, spoken word, was heard crystal clear through these walls. It made our stay very uncomfortable not only from the perspective of having to put up with our neighbor's noise, but from the perspective that i felt like i had to whisper to my boyfriend so they wouldn't hear OUR conversations. I was a little surprised also to see that our balcony was also lacking in privacy. There are 3 pots of small plants that separate your balcony from your neighbors. I was about to head outside on the balcony until i saw the feet of our neighbor laying out in the sun on their side. I basically would have been sitting right next to her had i gone out there myself. Wonderful if you love making friends with strangers, but crummy if you just want a peaceful moment of solitude. =/ If you are a light sleeper, or care about your privacy, the downstairs Warren Suite would probably be your best bet. I imagine that is more private and less noisy. And lastly, an oddity i have to mention: I swear i heard footsteps ALL night long coming from somewhere. I couldn't understand it for the life of me. I kept waking up and hearing it and wondering "who on earth is walking back and forth all this time, at this hour..." Also kept hearing a ball dropping and rolling repeatedly throughout the night. I had many crazy intense ghost nightmares in my sleep due to these noises. They say this building is not haunted, but i do not know what the heck i was hearing!
