5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2011

this is the best place I could recommend. Friendly staff and clean. It's not the ritz but it beats those dirty cheap motels. Plus the Galaxy diner is near by and bunhuggers and a few other eateries plus Barnes and Noble and other shops.

My wife and I take great pride in our motel. We are on the premisis every day to make sure that all parts of the motel operations are done correctly. We are not perfect but do our best to make sure our guests are fully satisfied. If we do encounter an unsatisfied guest in the future we would appreciate your comments in person so we can correct the issue immediately. Thank you, Scott Worthington/Owner/Travel Inn.

Small, run down, dark, matress was like a pancake, paint coming off the walls, beaten up.

I was scared to take my clothes off. The bathroom looked like something from a third world country. No alarm clock. My neighbor called it seedly...that might be kind. I couldn't wait until morning so I could get out of there. Wall heat/AC - I didn't want to think about who had been in the room and what had gone on. This place promoted that kind of feeling.

Worst hotel in my life time. I wished I had spent another 30 to 40 dollars and had a better room. It was too cheap either. $60.00. The reviews for this hotel are misleading. Don't stay here!!!

In the morning I went to the office and the employee was asleep. No wonder I didn't get a wake up call.

Room Tip: Stay Away From This Horrible Place!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2011

My husband and I took an over nighter to see flagstaff; we are from Colorado. We didn't book in advance and maybe that would hve saved us a little on the price, but when we got here we asked to see a room and the owners were so very friendly. We had a pet so we needed per friendliness and there was only a ten dollar fee; much better than most. After seeing how clean the room was we decide to stay. It was perfect size for just us and the heater worked great. Didn't find anything weird in our room and eerything was spotless. Would be nocice if they had alarm clocks but that's basically all that's missing. Had a fridge and microwave as well as a television. Good water pressure in the shower too. All in all the owners were fabulous and very helpful with all of our questions. Book in advance to avoid steeper prices but for a one night stay this place was excellent! We will definitely come back!

I stayed here in December. The attendant at the front desk was really friendly. My room was just $44, which is reasonable for the area. Discount if you are a AAA member too.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2010

Stayed here for one night en route from Nevada to Santa Fe. Since we didn't get into Flagstaff until 11:30, it didn't make sense to spend a lot of money on a room so we chose this place; we had a coupon so it was very cheap. It was decent enough and seemed clean. The room was on the small side but it had free wireless and a fridge. It's not that close to the train, like many other Flagstaff hotels are, so it was quiet. While it was nothing special, I'd stay here again if it were just to catch a few hours of sleep, but I wouldn't choose it for a longer stay.

Large, clean rooms. Beds comfortable.
Breakfast consisted of cook your own waffles, cereal, toast - coffee and tea.
Inexpensive for a family of 5.
We found the staff friendly and helpful.
