Trip April 6-9, 2010. We only wanted to stay one night (expensive!) on the rim of the Grand Canyon, so we needed an affordable place to stay both going and coming. Being a hotel snob, I was not expecting much for the $79 rate, and the things I had read about Flagstaff, etc. I was very pleasantly surprised- the room was very clean and updated, had a flat screen TV, granite sink outside the bath, free internet, and a partial view of Mt. Humphrey. The staff at check-in (both times) was very helpful, pleasant and chatty. The breakfast was typical continental, with a make-your-own-waffle station that my boys liked. Also cereal, fruit, danish, etc. Flagstaff is a cute college town that we actually enjoyed, and the drive to GC was only about 1.5 hours. We had considered some of the pricier ($129 and $149) hotels in Flagstaff, thinking they would be nicer, but we are so glad we saved the money and stayed at the Comfort Inn. We would 100% stay here again.
