I've stayed here many times over the last 15 years and have always found this motel to be a great value with very reasonable prices in a resort town. Prices are even less for seniors and AAA members. It has always been clean and comfortable with a parking lot spacious enough to not have cars parked "on top" of each other limiting room to unload bags, etc. The staff is quick to resolve problems, even if it might mean changing rooms. The desk clerks are cheerful, accommodating, and courteous. I generally heard no trains nor street noise. Beds and pillows are clean and comfortable. Plenty of hot water for showering, even in the morning. TV worked great. In room coffee pot worked well. The pool is good and well maintained. Do not depend on their clock radios for an alarm clock-they are not reliable; however, they have a wake-up call service. The continental breakfast is exactly what you would expect in a continental breakfast: pastries (sometimes), english muffins, cereal (including oatmeal), 2 kinds of juice, hot coffee, and plenty of butter and jam. There is also a basket of fresh fruit, like apples and oranges. Other motels sometimes offer waffles too, but their prices generally are higher. However, breakfast is in the main lobby, not a separate breakfast room, and there are only 2 breakfast tables for all guests. In the past, they had small trays so you could take breakfast for 2 back to your room along with coffee and juice. But at my last visit, these trays were no longer available, even on request. EconoLodge has been known as a budget motel, and should be compared with other budget motels. I gave it 4 stars (as a budget motel) considering it compares very favorably with even more expensive motels in the area. When this motel has been full in the past, I've stayed in other motels and paid lots more for a lot less. But if you are looking for lots more service and features, a big breakfast, and amenities, this probably isn't the place, but be prepared for higher prices elsewhere. But be careful.......prices can significantly increase here (like all other motels in the area) when there are special events in town, like the NAU graduation for example (usually in May I think), and all rooms in town are at a premium (if you can even find one without an advance reservation). I'm not looking for much when I travel.....just a good night's sleep and being comfortable. I can't imagine staying elsewhere when I'm in Flagstaff.
