I was on a road trip for the Thanksgiving holiday and in Tuscson on Thursday planning to head south to Tombstone on Friday when I recieved a phone call informing me my home in Flagstaff had burnt down, I HAD to return to Flagstaff and was unable to continue with my trip. I contacted this hotel which I had a reservation and was rudely told that I would be charged anyway that this was not their problem. and I was charged. I understand the "rule" but please have some consideration.
we had 6 of us staying there for 2 nights and found the place to be so nice and comfortable much better than some of the popular hotels we stayed in , in other parts of the states. we travelled from australia just to stay in the silver nugget and were not dissapointed, i would recommend this place to anyone excpet if you think you are to good for a place like this - well done jim
Dont be fooled by pictures on their website.When you get there the rooms are nothing like they look on this.The rooms are very outdated,for example old well worn beds.Threadbare and badly stained carpets.
At first we thought the stains were part of the carpets pattern.The door to the room could have been forced open with minimum effort by a young child.Expected old world charm not three inches of dust in the room.
We were told the smell which penetrated every room was the old wood of the building.However it was the same as the gents toilet you find in any public bar.
Paid for two nights,stayed one,slept fully clothed on top of the bed,it was that bad.
As soon as I walked through the door, I thought I was in the wrong place....I expected to walk into an old western atmosphere...you know...with wood floors and leather or rawhide furniture...instead I walked into what looked like someone's old house with hodge podge furniture and all.
The bathroom in the Wyatt Earp room was silly...if you have long legs, you might as well forget sitting on the toilet (there is some silly little dividing wall right where your knees are supposed to be)...not to mention the tiny little shower. If you rent any of the other rooms, you have to share the only other restroom with 3 other rooms, and one of those rooms can sleep up to 4 people...so basically at any point you could be sharing that bathroom and shower with up to 8 people (including yourself)....also...the walls are very thin...if you know what I mean...
The beds in some of the other rooms were NOT comfortable at all...I thought I was going to sink to the floor!! I stayed for a few nights...at one point I had the place to myself...the next night more of the rooms were rented out, and let me tell you, I haven't been so upset....the other renters were very rude and were extremely loud and drunk and kept me awake well after 2am!!!
The only good thing about the place is the balcony and the view of the town and the birdcage theatre....other than that I would suggest just renting a room at a well known hotel. At least there you will get what you paid for!!
It is a wonderful veiw from your very own balcony!

We stayed for 1 night. I cant wait to go stay at least a couple of nights. It is a great location. The veiw of the town is wonderful! You can see everything going on in town from the balcony. The place feels like home. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would recomend the "Rose" room.
LOVED THE BALCONY OVERLOOKING THE SHOPS, STAGECOACH ROUTE, BIRDCAGE AND TOURIST (PEOPLE WATCHING). ALTHOUGH WE SHARED THE KITCHEN AND DINING AREA WITH THE OTHER 3 ROOMS IT WAS LIKE WE HAD THE PLACE ALL TO OURSELVES. YOU SHOULD SEE THE EARLY MORNING VIEW OF THE MOUNTAINS.WILL BE BACK JULY 2006 AND WOULDN'T THINK OF STAYING ANY WHERE ELSE
