Virgil's Corner Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 13 Tombstone B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 April 2017

We only stayed one night so perhaps we didn't get the real "feel" of the place. The location is excellent, walking distance to Alan Street and most attractions. The check-in process was fine, in fact, the caretaker called us to see what time to we were expecting to arrive so she could meet us there. The home is really nice and updated, clean from what we could see. The room was spacious and clean. Each room has it's own A/C and you are able to adjust the temp to whatever is comfy for you. The bathroom was spacious and clean - except for the half-used shampoo! I always bring my own so it wasn't a problem for me, but yuck! The only down fall was the breakfast. The lady handling it was very nice and tried to be accommodating. There were seven guests that day and the breakfast was very sparse. My husband and I could have ate most of it ourselves! When she asked the group if we needed anything else, a few of us asked for more scrambled eggs and bacon. She said she could do the eggs but would have to run to the store for more bacon. We all politely declined. She did bring out more eggs but only enough for two people. There was a pot labeled "decaf" but it was never filled. The the pot with regular coffee was empty the whole time we were there except for breakfast. The Keurig was there with lots of options for tea and coffee but no water so it wasn't much help. We ended up leaving a bit early so we could get a very early lunch/late breakfast before heading out of town. Didn't ask about Wifi and it wasn't mentioned so I don't know if it was available. In fact, not very much was mentioned about the property. There was a fire pit but no details on how to use it. Overall, nice accommodations, nice location but very sad breakfast. Guests shouldn't leave hungry. Not sure I'd stay here again. Price was alittle high also.

We booked Virgil's after having read most of the reviews particularly those mentioning the staff, because, as we all know, the people who manage the day to day operations of any accommodation can make or break your stay there. Upon arrival we were informed by the current hostess? that she had only been there for 3 weeks and that all the previous staff had suddenly resigned leaving the owners to find replacement personnel, perhaps this had some effect on what followed. We were requested to pay up front, which is not unusual, and this was conducted on a mobile phone with the owner who does not reside nearby. Having paid we of course requested a receipt, however, we had to send numerous texts and e-mails to the owner before we received one. It appeared that as soon as we had paid, the owner lost interest, and it was left to the current hostess? to run everything. The actual owner(s) reside in Texas and appear to rely on locally hired staff to run their enterprise. On the welcome blurb it clearly states breakfast was between 06.00 and 0900 daily, but we were 'instructed' that it would be served at 08.00 and apparently it was 'take it or leave it'. the cook did his best, but he had another job to go to. The meal was basic to say the least and the choice was whatever the cook decided not what one would like. There was no de-caffeinated coffee even though we had specifically requested this for health reasons, he had to purchase some locally and on the 2nd day he ran out of orange juice! I had cause to visit the kitchen for some milk and there were very little food supplies there, including such staples as bread, milk etc. On the morning of the second day I asked when the room would be serviced as we were there for 4 days and was told, "Oh, we only do that when you leave". We were shown a nearby laundry room with clean bed linen and towels and invited to 'help ourselves' I make enough beds at home and do not expect to do so at a B&B! This was simply unacceptable and I requested the room serviced a.s.a.p. This was eventually done by the cook's partner who also works full time at another nearby hotel as a maid. The job was poorly done it was not dusted, a dirty bath mat left in situ and the shower not cleaned. It appears to me that the owner needs to spend more time actually running the business instead of resting at home in Texas. Eventually we left a day earlier than we were due to and moved on. There were other areas worthy of complaint, which I photographed but I have not mentioned as I think anyone reading this will get the picture of the circumstances. I will say that the bed was comfortable and the shower superb, but the other failings ruined the experience for us. We have sent an e-mail to the owners recording our complaints an received an unsatisfactory reply. No doubt the owner(s) will wish to offer explanations and rebuttals of my comments but I only speak as I find and feel my comments and observations are justified. I would never return here.

Room Tip: I would not return to these premises

We stayed her for one night in the room “Morgan & Lou”. We loved the interior of the room, especially the bathroom. All was clean, including the big lounge and dining area, wifi worked well. We were the only guests at this time. The breakfast was nothing special. The B&B is close to Allan Street with the main attractions of Tombstone.

Loved this place. What a great stay in this historic town.
Place is relatively new and the rooms are very modern with all the amenities you would expect at a hotel but with a home feel.
The staff is very welcoming and gives provides the basis for an excellent stay. The place starts to feel like home right away.
Breakfast is served family style each morning for the guests so it's a chance to meet new people and enjoy good food to start the day.
My wife and I stayed here while we were in town for a wedding and we would love to come back. A great location close to all the local attractions and history.
Great hospitality from a group that cares about their guests. Will be back for sure. Highly recommend staying here.

Generally, TA does right by us. However, this time was a bust. Listed as the #1 B&B in Tombstone, we left feeling disappointed and unfulfilled. Living in SV (just 18 miles down the road) we wanted a convenient and different place for a "stay-cation". I won't go into all the details but there was a dead plant, dead bugs, and mouse droppings. Oh, and in our bathroom, 1/2 used shampoo bottle. My husband could, and does, a more memorable breakfast. Nothing special at all. Blah, blah, blah. Literally.
