Copper City Inn Basics:
Copper City Inn, on the west end of the Old Bisbee historic district, is within walking distance of dining, entertainment and Bisbee history.
About the Inn:
The Copper City Inn is nestled on the side of a hill making up one side of the winding and beautiful Tombstone Canyon. The Inn is made up of three large rooms with large bathrooms. I stayed in the Arts & Crafts style Warren Suite which has a full kitchen with gas stove, full size refrigerator and large sitting area. From your retreat at the Inn, it's an easy downhill walk to dining, shopping and entertainment. And, since the hill is more like a slight incline, it's not all that hard to walk back!
The Inn consists of three beautifully decorated rooms with large in-room bathrooms, comfortable queen beds, wireless internet access and wonderful verandas. Each room has an individual balcony with views of Main Street, Tombstone Canyon and the Mule Mountains. A rear sun deck with table seating, umbrella, and chaise lounge is available for guests. Each of the three rooms has a different decor: Mary Jane Colter room is Art deco, the Louie de Bisbee room is French antique, and the Warren Suite is Mission Arts & Crafts. Additionally, the Warren Suite has a completely stocked full kitchen.
Rates are from $110 to $135 for the Warren Suite with kitchen. I would say this is very reasonable given the amenities, location and quality of the accomodations. Check the website for updated information.

Nice to Know:
- Rooms are up one two two flights of stairs so keep that in mind if you have any walking limitations. Also keep in mind that Bisbee is built on hillsides and so stairs are fun and part of the Bisbee intrigue.
- Smoking and Pets are a no-no.
- Entry is via keyless/coded electronic door locks. You will be given the code when you reserve a room. There is no on-site staff, however the owner is reachable via phone.
Fred Miller, who developed the concept of a beautiful hillside inn with three distinctly decorated rooms, works just down the street at a fabulous restaurant, Cafe Roka. You may find him there, in the center of the dining room tending bar. He is easily available by phone should you have questions although there is an instruction book in the rooms that tells all!
Look in your room for a card that offers a complimentary continental breakfast to inn guests. Just up the street is the High Desert Market and Cafe. Directions are with the card. Enjoy the little morning walk!
Copper City Inn - Recommendations:
I highly recommend the Copper City Inn for your stay in Bisbee. It is new, full of ammenities and, for me, the verandas provide the opportunity to spend some hours reading and relaxing while overseeing the activities of historic Bisbee.
The location is ideal. You can walk the winding streets, visit the museum, attend theatre across the street, find a restaurant, and shop 'til you drop within a few blocks from the inn. While you may hear some traffic, Bisbee gets very quiet at night.
The Copper City Inn is a good place to stay during the heat of the summer. The air conditioning works wonders and the screened windows off the veranda bring in the cool desert air at night.
The owner has thought of everything and takes pride in adding small details to each room. With all the comforts of home, you will want to stay awhile.
The inn has an informative website. You can call for a reservation or make one online through the website.
