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.

  • We happened upon the Rose Tree and so glad we did! We'd never heard of it. The aroma floating from the doorway of the house was delightful and got even better as we walked into the courtyard where the...  more »

  • I'm a loyal fan of the plant world and this 8,000 sq. ft. Banksia Rose tree is stunning. Planted somewhere back in 1885, "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" confirms that this is the world's largest. How is it possible, you ask.....
  • I went to Tombstone and was more excited to see this than anything else. LOL
  • The rose tree itself is incredibly impressive. There were a few flowers left on the tree when we visited, but I can imagine how stunning it would be in full bloom. To say that the plant is massive would be an understatement. I was just expecting to see the rose tree on my visit, but I was incredibly impressed with the museum they had on site, and the staff were very friendly. This place is well worth your time if you're visiting Tombstone.
  • The Rose Tree itself was impressive and the artifacts interesting, but the staff was just rude. I walked in with my Aunt, gave the lady behind the desk a $10 bill ($5 for each adult) and smiled at her. She replied, "Thanks for the tip" sarcastically. It was arrogant and kind of ruined the experience.
  • Well done museum and the rose bush is awe inspiring
