“Decent Digs in Flagstaff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The actual owner was gone at the time I stayed there with my father and girlfriend, but his replacement was a very nice friend of his from India. The night we were there, we wanted to have some tea and the girl who was keeping night watch told us there was no tea for the rooms, but proceeded to give us several bags of her own delicious teas. That was a plus in customer service.

As for the rooms, we are usually traveling the third world and appreciate budget rooms. The US for us is not such a budget destination (I am a US citizen, and done heaps of roadtrips and prefer to camp, sleep over at friends' houses, or use Couchsurfing.org), but this room for the 3 of us was decent enough and also not so run down as other reviews mentioned. Maybe they did some remodeling by the time we were there in May 2013?

Overall, it was a nice experience and Flagstaff worth a stop through for the Observatory.

I didn't realise when booking but the Hotel is right next to a really good area for Bars & Dinning.
Big flat screen TVs and friendly staff.
Quite grubby rooms, need paint and new doors minimum. A little like the Motel Ealr & Randy Hicks used live in.

Room Tip: Don't expect much from the rooms, but if you like watching TV you'll be happy.

We stayed at this motel over the Memorial Day 2013 holiday weekend. They made us feel at home, really enjoyed our stay!

The only thing that stopped us from giving this motel a 5 star rating, is they had no pool, but that's okay.

The manager and employees are very nice and friendly. If you stay here you can receive a 10% discount at the restaurant across the street, and the manager actually went over there with us to tell the restaurant that we were staying at his motel, so we could receive the 10% discount. That was so nice.

There were no malfunctions of any appliance, everything worked. The bathroom has a mirror where the shower is! I have stayed in so many motels and hotels, where there is no mirror in the same room as the shower. There is a large flat screen television, and they allow pets! Yay!

They readily accommodated us with a large parking space, so we could park our truck & flatbed trailer, which was carrying our new buggy. That was very important to us, and they were so gracious to understand.

It is very close to a lot of different restaurants and stores, so it's very convenient! The sound of traffic didn't bother us at all, and we were closest to the street.

Overall, very, very cozy, we will DEFINITELY consider staying here again!

Thank you "L" Motel!

Look in the dictionary under 'hellhole' and you'll see this disgusting excuse for a hotel. The manager attempted to BS us by saying the room was 'OK'....liar. They added a utility surcharge the the price, we were stuck. Filthy, trashy, not what the photos depictIt's not worth my time to write this review but I have to leave 200 words.

Great management, affordable rate, and fantastic location!

My only complaint is the motel is an older building, but I would not call it dirty or unclean -- just older. Management really seems to care about the guests, and seem to be making changes wherever they can.

This motel was nice with an astoundingly large bathroom. Because of a mistake with our reservations we got moved to this place from Howard Johnson. I wouldn't have paid the price they were asking as I don't think the room was overly nice. It was comfortable and clean with nice staff. The discount I got was well worth it.
