I stayed one July night in the least expensive room ($99) at the Canyon Rose Suites and found it a pleasant experience.

There are at least as many places of lodging in Bisbee as there are reasons to visit Bisbee in the first place. Most of the hotels & inns are old … a hundred years old or more.

I have had the pleasure of staying in many historical hotels & inns, including European castles. Considering their antiquity, travelers have to decide if the experience of living temporarily in a relic is worth doing without certain modern amenities and putting up with a few quirks & inconveniences.

Built for local miners in 1895 by the first mayor of Bisbee, the Inn has 14 comfortably furnished rooms, all with their own theme: Asian, Geronimo, Sultan’s Harem … you get the idea. “Eclectic” would be a gross understatement. Somewhere between quaint and quirky. But none so outlandish that I would describe it as “kinky”.
The Copper Queen Hotel still stands majestic after more than 100 years.
Worth a look around the lobby and saloon. Relax with a drink on the front patio. Take a Ghost Tour.
