Skip the traditional motel – Shady Dell Trailer Court

Shady Dell Trailer Court and Dot’s Diner

1 Old Douglas Road
Bisbee, AZ

Unique lodging

What a great idea! Travel trailers as motel rooms. Those aluminum marvels from postwar America that embodied the notion of “let’s hit the road.” No Airstreams, but a nice roster of other vintage models like the Crown and Spartan Manor with even more details and amenities. The presence of Dot’s, a ten-stool art deco throwback next door adds to the charm. Great breakfasts at very low cost, and according to the guy at he griddle, the best pies you’ll find in the state!
