Looking for budget lodging for Flagstaff can be a bit of a challenge. Was here for a couple days and looking to save a few bucks over the newer chain places in town, and also want to be walkable to the downtown area. There were a couple places downtown that, as we walked by them, we understood the hit or miss Tripadvisor ratings of them. They were clearly nice old town hotels that were the class of the territory in the last century, had fallen on hard times, and have someone now trying to look after them. Would love to stay at such a place, but was concerned after seeing them there are more concerned about their bar business and not making investment to be a boutique hotel. More like a place for drunk revelers to flop at night.
Herein comes the Highland Country Inn. Walkable to downtown, though it might be uncomfortable to some on a cold winter night. Rooms are very clean and quiet given the nearby busy streets and ever present trains in Flagstaff. Must be the way this property sits on the corner offset from the main drag. Clean rooms, older furniture in good condition, and workable newer heat/AC unit. Love the fridge and micro. What I also like is that the owner appeared to be investing significantly in room upgrades with several rooms noticeably out of revenue production being worked on.
Wifi worked great. No breakfast, which might be important to some just passing thru. For those staying multiple days there were several great places for b/l/d within a block or two.
Only one weird thing to mention... When is the last time you stayed somewhere and had no sign for the door to tell maid service the room was occupied? So if you are out and sleeping late, guess what - maid service will wake you up knocking on the door. Either an oversize by the management on a simple low cost hotel/motel standard, or some kind of weird pet peeve of the owner. Simple enough to make your own sign and hang it on the door yourself.
