“Lovely Letson Loft”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Last weekend my husband and I went on a romantic getaway to Bisbee. The bumper sticker I saw on my first day "Keep Bisbee bizarre" says all you need to know about the town. It is strange and artistic, full of history, characters and ghosts. IT IS WONDERFUL. What isn't always so are the hotels, which are also unfortunately a little bizarre. However the Letson Loft hits the perfect note. A historic building on Main St. with an interesting past, it is tastefully decorated. It is perfectly appointed balancing turn of the century charms with modern amenities. Our hosts were warm and welcoming, but never intrusive. When we first arrived we noted the room that we had chosen opened directly to the check in area. They cheerfully switched rooms for us, however it should be noted, now that we have stayed at the property that we would have had no problem with noise had we not moved. In fact if we return we will try that room next. Despite the age of the place it was very quiet despite being full the first night of our stay. The continental breakfast was really just some sweet rolls and fruit, but that is really all we wanted. The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 star review was the parking was not great, you have to park behind, and then check in at the front...we accidentally stumbled into the back door of the Sam Poe gallery, and the proprietor was kind enough to show us where to go. Also the price seemed a little high to me, but honestly I'm a tight wad, my husband who is not didn't bat an eye. I will gladly stay there again the next time we are in Bisbee.

Room Tip: The first night all the rooms were open before check in and we looked into all of them, there's...

We had a good experience at Letson. The hotel is located on main street so you see and hear everything. The hotel was very clean, decorated nicely and felt comfortable. The staff sets out a very nice continental breakfast and the environment is very casual. We liked our room and it was fun during waking hours; the only down side to the rooms up front (we stayed in room 4) is that the street noise can make it difficult to sleep if you are a light sleeper. It wasn't a problem for me but my wife was up most the night until she realized they offeed ear plugs. Eating tip....there's no shortage of bars but if arriving late you may want to eat in Tucson, Tombstone or Sierra Vista as the only place open after 9pm is a place that looks very questionable. Definitely not Letson's fault just offering up so advice for late arrivers.

Room Tip: If you need quiet then select one of the room at the back, Suite 5 is probably the best for that but...

We had a wonderful stay Letson Loft Hotel. The rooms were clean and lovely. We stayed in Room 5 - very large room with King bed. Charming décor, large rooms, comfortable beds. The breakfast was perfect for me - fruit, cheese, Danish, coffee and teas. My husband needed a bit more breakfast, but that was fine. The staff was so accommodating and helped to make our stay perfect. The hotel is perfectly located within walking distance to great restaurants and shops. We will definitely return!

Room Tip: Rooms 3 and 4 would be noisy since they are located next to the stairwell and the main reception are...

I absolutely LOVED the charm and decor of this hotel. The property is situated on the main drag in Bisbee, so is the perfect choice for those who plan to walk and stay in the town center.

My boyfriend and I stayed in a room with a King-sized bed that had lofted ceilings, enormous sky lights, and a lovely sitting area. The decor was tasteful and elegant, a welcome surprise from what many western B&Bs normally offer. It felt more like being in a upper-class hotel in a large city than a B&B in a small Arizonan town. The room came with water bottles and hot tea. The bathroom amenities were fairly standard for any similarly-priced hotel. The hotel is historic, and the manager did a great job of explaining the history upon check-in, and showed us the wall of historic pictures that depicted the Letson during the early 1900s.

We slept well and were extremely comfortable in our room. Despite being on the main Bisbee street, there was hardly any noise, aside from the rain on the vaulted skylights -- a welcome sound for Arizonans!

The only disappointing part of the stay was the meager breakfast. For a Bed & Breakfast in this price range, I would have expected a greater, more ample selection. We were offered a small buffet-style choice of watermelon and grapes, some cheese, and a tray of chocolate croissants that were store-purchased and cut in halves. There was coffee, orange juice, and tea. The spread was, well, not really a spread. It was fine for a quick bite, but we were hungry within the hour and chose to have a true "American" breakfast elsewhere.

Overall, I would absolutely choose this hotel again, knowing that I'll likely have to supplement breakfast on my own. The room was beautiful, and the feel of the hotel was clean, romantic and luxurious-- a true gem in the historic, quirky town of Bisbee!

Just returned from a lovely 2 night stay at the Letson Loft. We stayed in room #2, overlooking Main Street. Great location. Nicely updated. Ridiculously comfortable bed. I usually steer clear of B&Bs because I can't stand the hokey decorations (Victorian, frilly, etc.)...the Letson is very tastefully done. Highly recommend it if you are looking for a great hotel in Bisbee!

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking Main Street, you'll have a great view and very little street noise.

This was our third stay at Letson Loft. We booked a nice room facing the street. The room has a lovely and so comfortable queen bed. The bathroom is nicely appointed. The inn is on the second floor of commercial buildings, so you have to climb a rather steep set of stairs. No problem for us, but it might be a problem for some people. When we stayed here in the past, the manager baked fresh tea bread each evening for the next morning. Not so anymore. The breakfast rolls or cupcakes are store bought. We enjoy staying here very much and love Bisbee with all its quaint shops.

Room Tip: I prefer a front room even though it faces the street. Earplugs are provided. I don't care for...

This is a small hotel with European charm. The location is super, right where you want to be. The rooms are decorated very nicely. A fun spot. There is no elevator as it's a old building, so you need to be able to carry your luggage up stairs. There is a breakfast of rolls, coffee, juice and fruit. The staff is really friendly and helpful.
