What a fun place! Convenient to walk to downtown and Whiskey Row. Got a great suggestion for tapas at El Gato Azul by the super nice lady at the reg desk (who also called us to let us know we could have our room early and how to make the scenic drive from Sedona through Jerome-highly recommended).

This is the cutest, hippest place in AZ, for sure! Loved the unique vintage items, the art, the atmosphere and the AMAZING customer service by the staff! And the warm cookies at check out were a nice touch too! We will stay here again!

We stayed at The Motor Lodge for one night, and would definitely stay here again. Great Location: The Motor Lodge is about three (short) blocks from the courthouse, and we were able to walk down to Whiskey Row in about 5-10 minutes. If that's too far for you, they also had beach cruisers that you could borrow (fair warning, it's... More

Our room was so cozy with a very comfortable bed and bedding. We were even able to charge our car in the carport next to our room. When we checked... More

I rented the Motor Lodge's house up on the hill. It was so nice to have the space to chill. I was dropping my niece at Embry-Riddle after a terrible family tragedy, and we were both pretty frayed. She stayed with me instead of the dorm for the orientation, and those couple of days truly refreshed us. There are great... More

i have stayed at the motor lodge a handful of times, and each time it lives up to, and even exceeds, the last. i have visited single, with friends, with my husband, and with my children. the location is great; close enough to whiskey row to feel the downtown prescott atmosphere, yet tucked just far enough away to feel peaceful,...

What an exceptional experience... I mean, really. I have not been up to visit in many years, and was wondering if it was as good as I remembered it. Yep, it was. Which is surprising, as most things never live up to 'the first time', so to speak. Joe, one of the owners was there and as charming and wonderful... More
