Where to stay in Tombstone

Tombstone may bill itself as the "Town Too Tough to Die," but there's nothing too tough about its accommodations. This frontier town offers a good selection of affordable inns and small motels providing every comfort of home in or near the historic central district. Most of the town's bed and breakfasts provide cable TV, free Wi-Fi, and access to a private swimming pool. For a more rustic "Wild West" experience, pitch a tent at one of Tombstone's campgrounds.
