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

First time staying here. Was a fantastic place. Lots of colorful décor. Joe and Brian as well as the rest of the staff where very friendly and helpful. We spent four nights and would stay again. Liked setting on the porch/deck having breakfast and enjoying the start of the day.

What can I say about this place? Bizarre? Quaint? Quirky? This is the second time my husband and I stayed at the Motor Lodge. The first time I went we were like two kids 'oh my God' we said, 'this is so quirky.' At first after traveling first class and staying at Marriotts for the earlier part of the year... More

My experience at The Motor Lodge was not that of mere lodging while traveling through Arizona. My stay at the Motor Lodge was that of walking into a parallel universe. (just hours ago, arriving from a stressful workweek in NYC) friend from Tucson and I stayed in the front 'cabin', the porch being the favorite room. after eating dinner on... More

Immediately as you pull into the cul-de-sac, you notice the tight quarters for parking and the colorful decor that stands out but far from gaudy. (late we would learn that we had a carport) Joe, the most hospitable host, greeted us before I could even ring the bell on the counter. We hadn't even checked in, when he had offered... More

Our family of four just checked out today and we wanted to get online as soon as possible to rave about our experience at The Motor Lodge in Prescott. We had just touched down in Phoenix when we received a call from Joe that our room was ready ahead of the scheduled-check in time and we could go ahead and... More

Stayed 3 nights in room 10 over the 4th of July weekend. It was a "family" atmosphere with most of the other guests hanging out on their patios, playing games with the kids in the parking lot, and just having fun! Nicely restored "50's style" rooms, comfy bed, and a stone fireplace in our room. We spent evenings outside on... More

My wife and I recently visited our daughter in Prescott, AZ and we had the opportunity to stay at The Motor Lodge. First, the owners and staff are friendly, fun and engaging. As we arrived to check in we were offered beer or drinks, gratis. They provided us with the best restaurant suggestions and went more than out of their... More

I stayed here when I had two days worth business in Prescott during the week, and opted to spend the night in town versus driving up from Phoenix twice. I was intrigued by the concept of a boutique motel, and I much prefer to stay at independently-owned/operated places than impersonal large chains if I can help it. The Motor Lodge... More
