“Clean, comfy & cheap!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012 via mobile

Paid $39 for a double room. Room was v spacious with tv, fridge, microwave & air con. Bathroom was decent size. There is free wifi but it's painfully slow.

Staff friendly, breakfast was small & light.

Overall a great stopover motel, v cheap but clean rooms. Served my needs perfectly.

I needed an easy hotel close to the Amtrak station (15' walk) for an overnight stay in Flagstaff. The cost is perfect. Although the hotel's wifi was not brilliant this was not a real problem: the wifi is "kindly" provided by nearby hotels (no PW needed).
The breakfast is poor but ... who cares.
The room was ok.

This is a very simple inn. The price is right, and compared to so many other places in the Flagstaff area, this one is the nicest one i have been in. The staff is friendly, and the rooms are clean. I have never had a problem with bed bugs here, as rene71 stated, and the sauna and hot tub area is very relaxing after a long day of hiking. Bottom line, I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice, inexpensive place to stay.

I chose this motel because of the price. it looked ok. I had to take a trip to Scottsdale to take my son back to school and I left my older daughter here with her younger siblings. She said the office staff were very rude and inconsiderate when she asked them questions. There wasn't really a sauna and even though she was 19, she was told she couldn't go in the sauna. I got back to the motel around 8:30pm on this Sunday night of 09/25/2011. My son woke me up and said he was itching. I got up, turned on the lights and he had bites on his arm, shoulder and on his side that he was lying on. The thing about it, is these bed bugs didn't bite anyone else...just my little boy!!! BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU CHOOSE TO STAY...YOU WON'T ALWAYS ATTRACT THEM AND YOU COULD VIRTUALLY TAKE THESE PESTS HOME!!!! THE ROOM WE STAYED IN WAS 124... I KID YOU NOT, I WOULDN'T STAY HERE.

Room Tip: i don't recommend this inn at all!

We rolled into flagstaff on a day the heavens opened... It was the first motel we saw and we took it!

The place was clean and the service was polite, the room was dark and basic but was ok for a night! We were a bit out of town but all in all a comfortable place!!!
