“The Bates Motel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

What a horrible experience. What kind of hotel/motel provides guest with a room on the ground floor and no curtain for the bathroom window (room101). It's not as though this was an error, it was intentional because there was no curtain rod or screws to even hang a rod. We had to used duct tape to cover the window with a towel. The walls in the room had splotches of a different colored paint not as part of the decor, but a tacky attempt to cover possible repairs. The blankets on the bed were torn and full of lint balls. Needless to say I used my own because just the thought of using these made me itchy. If our arrival time hadn't been so late and we needed only a few hours of sleep, I would have never used this motel. The online description of this motel must have been written by the managers relatives.

Dear guest:

We appreciate you taking the time to complete this TripAdvisor review and provide us with some valuable feedback! Please know that we are working continuously on making updates and improvements to our property, and your feedback greatly assists us in this effort.

We sincerely apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay with us. We're very unhappy to hear about your dissatisfaction with our bathroom window, blankets, and paint job. Again, we sincerely apologize.

However, it's worth noting that since your review, we have been working diligently on refurbishing our hotel rooms! We are currently applying new paint to our rooms, as well as new carpeting. We've also completely redesigned our lobby area.

The work really has just begun in the refurbishment process, though. We're planning on making more improvements in the coming months, and it's safe to say that all of the issues you experienced previously will be resolved entirely.

We understand that based off of your last stay with us, your return is unlikely. However, if you'd be willing to give us another chance, I can promise that you wouldn't think to compare us to "The Bates Hotel" again!

If you're interested in a second stay, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Very simple and clean room with all amenities - microwave, fridge and TV. Staff was courteous. Very close to the "downtown" of Flagstaff with lots of delicious local and ethnic cuisine. The continental breakfast was below average with cold sugar-filled cereal and muffins but for the price of the whole room you could go out and enjoy a cafe breakfast in town! The hotel is next to a railway but we didn't find it loud. We would definitely stay here again! Swimming pool was under construction.

Room Tip: All rooms were decent as they all faced the town

I would definitely recommend my family and friends to the Travelodge. The rooms were very clean and again the staff was awesome. The breakfast bar was filling every morning. Great views of the mountains behind the hotel. Also to have instant hot water was great and the hot water doesn't run out. Thank you again Travelodge!
