We came up to Prescott to stay for our 10 year anniversary and had found the Motor Lodge online. It promised comfy, retro accommodations and it didn't disappoint! The owners are super sweet and can give a recommendation for a great restaurant, hike, or don't miss shop. I was nervous because I had a back injury and he had recommended... More

All the positive reviews other people have written for this place are spot on. It is quiet, clean, friendly and full of character. Sitting on your porch you meet other visitors as they are enjoying the outdoors as well. You are offered beer or wine upon arrival and cookies when you check out.The room was made up everyday and consistently... More

My Partner and I stayed at the motor Lodge this summer in August. WE LOVED IT! Not only is the property unique, but the location can't be beat. All of the staff was happy and fun to chat with. The motor lodge is one of those places that give the phrase "it's a small world" it's meaning. Chatting with the... More

If you are in Prescott, this is the place to stay. Upon checking in they offered us a beer....heck ya!!! The whole place is a cheeky throwback and nicely done. It's kitschy in a good way. They had a lot of fun decorating each room differently. We had the two bedroom unit with a small kichen and it was great.... More

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
