My wife, son and I recently spent 4 nights in the Little America Hotel in Flagstaff. The hotel is located immediately off Interstate 40, and is operated in conjunction with a truck stop, grill, and convenience center. The hotel portion, however, is well separated from the other operations, and really only shares a portion of a driveway.
Although initial impressions from the highway lead may lead you to believe that this is a motel, it is really a full-service hotel. There's a restaurant (not bad), concierge, large gift shop, pool, and room service. Our double queen room was absolutely spotless. Although the hotel has the look of a place that's been around for 50 years, it is in excellent repair, and the rooms are clean enough to be brand new. The decor, as mentioned elsewhere, has a dated style, but the furniture isn't old. The beds were comfortable, and the staff was courteous and helpful. The rooms are on the large side.
The hotel is actually composed of several buildings that are all interconnected. I knew from other Tripadvisor reviewers that the hotel's “Preferred View” rooms have views of the forest, instead of the parking lot (for a little more cash). When we reserved our room, the person on the phone suggested that we request “Lodge 4”, which we found is furthest from the restaurant, but also very quiet, with views of the woods. We didn't mind the walk, but others might (and you can also just drive to the restaurant and/or gift shop). Also, it occurred to me that there could be significant foot traffic on the ground floor main corridor in lodges 1-3, especially in inclement weather.
We found the Little America Hotel to be welcoming, convenient, and well-managed. We would hesitate to stay here again, or to recommend it to family and friends.
