“A great value on the road passing through”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

I had seen very positive reviews on Tripadvisor on this old school motel and seen prices advertised online for less than $50 per nite. Since our trip was in flux, we didn't make advance reservations but rolled the dice that it would be available if we needed it.
The very accommodating owners honored the internet rate instead of sticking us with some obscene rack rate typical of walk-ups. We were promptly processed and in our cozy double room in less than 5 minutes. While about a half mile walk to downtown Flagstaff, the motel was still convenient to nightlife and restaurants without engaging our vehicle.
Despite being at a main intersection of town near the university, even the room near the front office was surprisingly quiet. Basic ammenities were provided, the room was spotless and the ventilation system worked smoothly and quietly. The bedding was comfortable and bathroom clean with excellent hot water & pressure, and good drainage at the fixtures.
Our brief stay was very pleasant and enjoyable. I would recommend this motel for a quick, affordable night or two while passing through or attending a special event downtown or at the nearby university.

Room Tip: Though we found the rooms near the front office and busy intersection surprisingly quiet, a room tow...

This is an OK property. Stayed here for 1 night, rooms were clean (enough). Can be a bit noisy from the street and because of the fact that your room window is 2 feet away from the motel parking lot.. but I guess thats what happens with a lot of these places. Wifi was working properly, but very slow at times.

Why stay anywhere else?

This is a clean, neat, no-frills hotel close to Routes 40 and 66. Plenty of diners and restaurants around. Beds and pillows were comfortable enough but not luxurious. Rooms have fridge and microwaves, but not coffee-makers.

For coffee in the wee hours, when the lobby is not open, I went about .7 miles down the street to McDonald's which is open 24 hours.

There are plenty of restaurants around so dining is no problem.

This is a great value. The owners deserve a lot of credit for their effort. It really shows!

This is a very good no-frills motel that does what it does simply but very well. Rooms initially seem pretty spartan with their minimal decoration, but they have what you really need: very large, comfortable beds, effective heating/AC, large TV, fridge, microwave (at least, in the one we had, they did), good shower, hair dryer etc.

Everything is very clean, and the whole place is very well-maintained. Good parking, with excellent access to main roads. Surprisingly quiet considering location.

Family who run it are v helpful and friendly, and the location is good for seeing Flagstaff's old town.

All told, one of those places you think twice about reviewing, lest other people make it so popular you can't get in anymore at these bargain prices...

Room Tip: Rooms near the metal stairs can be disturbed by people clanking up them late at night.

I had stayed here many years ago and as I had to walk to the Amtrak station at 5AM to catch my train, chose to revisit. Surprised that hotel was so well maintained after all these years. Bed was comfortable and room clean. Gentlemen at front desk very friendly. Will come back here next time. Incidentally AAA recomends. My rate was very reasonabe.

We didn't have a room booked when we got to town and looked at a few places...Little America Hotel, and Hotel Monte Vista. Didn't want to pay a 100 bucks at little america..but it looked really nice...and didn't want a shared batch at monte vista...and low and behold we found a hidden gem.

Highland is a motel so don't get your hopes up too much but the management is fantastic, the rooms are clean, and it's close to the "action" of downtown and right across the street from NAU.

We had two queen beds which served their purpose for the night. It only cost about $50 plus tax, which was great and included wifi..a little slow..but who cares..and coffee tea in the morning. It also had a mini fridge which I was not expecting but really appreciated.

The manager at night gave us two resturant recomendations and it turned out to be great...more on that review later..
The next day he even drew a map for us on the best way to get to Sunset Crater, Wupatki, and Grand Canyon, then on to Vegas...very nice people.

Just don't expect the Four Seasons, but it's a great deal for the price.

Room Tip: Pick a room by the stairs if you can since there are not elevators

Two of us stayed here and the size of the room was great. The room was clean and ready for us when we got there without any issues. We were there in the middle of winter and the heating worked great. We stayed here without a car but it wasn't a problem because it was only a short walk into the downtown district, microbreweries and restaurants. The University adjacent is worth a wonder around too. The staff were accomodating and polite and made us feel welcome. For the price of the room it really was the best value place we stayed in on our whole trip. Definitely recommend it to anyone, with or without a car.
