My stay at the Howard Johnson, located at 801 West Route 66, Flagstaff, AZ, 86001, was by far the worst overnight experience I have had. When we arrived (after 9pm) there was a construction crew working and half the parking lot was takin up with dumpsters. To get to our room we had to walk through a maze of debris... More

I stopped at this motel because it was conveniently located and looked ok from the outside. However, the bed was very old and lopsided and the bathroom was dirty. The walls are paper thin. This hotel is old and is in desperate need of updating. Don't waste your money here.

We stayed for 2 nights to go to Grand Canyon National Park. It is about an hour drive from there but a scenic drive to take. The motel is undergoing a total make over and looks great. The staff very friendly. If on a budget it is definitely a good place to stay. Very close to stores and restaurants.

Location, price and availability on a weekend landed us at this motel for a night. We were pleased to see the room had just gotten a facelift. New carpet, tile in bath and shower, new sink and toilet. Same old bed and 60's era furniture along with an old CRT TV. Still, we weren't expecting a lot for the price... More

The motel is dated, though some room renovations are underway. The staff is friendly. Continental breakfast is meager, but OK. The lock on my room door did not work properly and the security latch was broken. The room was clean. There is no elevator to the second floor for those who might need it. It is conveniently located near the... More
