Ghost City Inn Information


Built around 1890 as a boarding house for lodging middle mine management, this building has seen many uses. Although most of its life has been spent as a boarding house, this Jerome building served as an ashram as well as a restaurant in prior years. The building went through a major restoration project in 1994, 2003 and again in 2014. From the Victorian elegance of the Verde View Room to the rustic feel of a north woods cabin in the Northern Exposure Room the owners have made each room special and inviting. The building still carries some of the uneven floors and original beadboard ceilings. All our rooms have private bathrooms, Direct TV, ceiling fans, and air conditioning. The Ghost City Inn has been featured on Sonoran Living Television, the Fox 10 Morning Show, Arizona TV 3 as well as the Boston Globe, Miami Herald, Inn Traveler, the Arizona Republic and many, many more! If you are looking for lodging in Jerome, Arizona, see why the Ghost City Inn is the most talked about place to stay in Jerome. From the front veranda, you will witness the surrounding splendor of old Jerome, the Verde Valley nearly 2000 vertical feet below, and the breathtaking views of the terraced red rocks of Sedona. At night, these magnificent views melt away to be replaced by a lush tapestry of stars that one can only see when the “big city lights” are far, far away. Then watch the sun rise over the Verde Valley as you sip a cup of freshly brewed coffee or tea. Arrington Journal and Inn Traveler magazine has listed our Inn as “Best Weekend Get-Away in America”, “Most Perfect Stay” and “Best in the West”. The Ghost City Inn is Jerome, Arizona’s most unique accommodation. Make us your home base and save some money! We are only 35 minutes from Sedona and close to everything else in Arizona.

Richard Faye and Ingrid Sarris bought the Ghost City Inn in early 2016 and promised the former owners not to change too many things. Ingrid has worked in the hospitality industry all her life. She owned a Country Inn in the North Georgia Mountains and a restaurant in Jamaica and Atlanta. Richard has been a builder of commercial and residential property and will try to stay ahead of his honey-do list at the Ghost city Inn.

Booking Terms and Conditions


Please note that we are a historic building which sits high off the street. Therefore, there are many steps to negotiate even to the first floor rooms.


  • Road from Phoenix (110.0 miles)

    From Phoenix, take I-17 north to Exit 287 (Camp Verde), turn left onto Hwy 260 and drive towards Cottonwood. In Cottonwood turn left onto Hwy 89A. Keep on Hwy 89A all the way to Jerome. Make sure to pay attention to the road signs since Hwy 89A makes quite some turns. Once in Jerome, you'll see the sign of the inn on the left of the hotel and the hotel immediately in front of you while the road is making a sharp right turn just before you enter the main commercial district. Parking is on-street, either along the curve immediately in front of the house, or in the gravel beside the road as you approach. Be careful not to park in front of a) red curbs, b) the neighbor's driveway, or c) anything with "No parking" painted on it. From Sedona, take Hwy 89A south to Cottonwood. Proceed through Cottonwood, staying on 89A and heading towards Prescott/Jerome. See above for directions for the rest of the drive.
