Stayed in room 3! Very cute and immaculate. The staff is so friendly and helpful I can't say enough. We walked down to restaurants and back. Definitely has the very personal touch to make your away in Prescott fabulous.

Stayed at the house offered by Motor Lodge and it was great! Talk about ammenities! We love to take our own food for breakfast and dinner and this was perfect. The absolute best equiped kitchen ever for this type of rental. Great views and quiet community - love it.

When the wifi code is "thegrooviest" you know you are staying in a cool place. Within walking distance to town..easy walk. Check in with Brian and a cold Mexican beer to greet us was a great touch. Gave great recommendations for hikes, meals, and must sees. We stayed in Room 10. King bed, fireplace, small kitchenette. Small bathroom.....he tried to... More

Just finished up my second visit to the Motor Lodge. It is still a fantastic place to stay. The great service is the number one reason to stay here. Unmatched among any of the chain hotels... Brian and crew make everyone feel like they are #1. It is within walking distance of Whiskey Row and all the restaurants in the... More

We live in Phoenix & love taking quick trips to Prescott. We were referred to the Motor Lodge by some friends a couple years ago & have stayed multiple times since. On our most recent visit to Prescott we decided to try a new place only because we bought a Deal Chicken which turned out to be a mistake! We... More

I was so excited to come home and write about this place. When I walked in and was offered a cold beer and a friendly smile. From that moment on, we were only more and more surprised and delighted by this motel. The Room: Forget about it, always ask for "The Hideaway" Room #13. This used to be the owners... More

I can't say enough about the Motor Lodge! Every detail in every room is quirky and eclectic and so much fun. The hosts are such friendly, warm, welcoming men. And extra touches like homemade cookies and a little magnetic chess game for the car as we left were beyond anything I would have expected. I give the Motor Lodge my... More

A must stay in Prescott! Totally awesome, homey, fun, and "groovy" place. Walking distance to the courthouse square area. Joe took great care of us and gave us exceptional restaurant recommendations! What a great time. Will definitely be back!

I felt like a real guest at The Motor Lodge. Joe welcomed us with a wonderfully cool beverage first thing. Our room was beautiful, the bed was dreamy, the chandeliers in the carports were the "cherry on top" . We enjoyed sitting on the patio in the mornings and evenings and being visited by the resident cat. Joe and Brian... More

This is definitely a unique place to stay and you won't be disappointed. While the rooms are decorated in a wonderful quirky retro style, it is also the little things that count. The owners have worked hard to make this a fun place to stay and they are more than helpful on things to do in the area, places to... More
