“Love this spot!”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

We pulled in around 3:00 and were greeted with a friendly smile and an offer of a glass of wine. One of the owners took us up to our room. Lime green and orange greeted us and we loved it already. Add to the great retro look was a cozy gas fireplace and a very comfy bed. Every unit has its own front porch for relaxing or looking at the stars. This was by far our favorite spot for our vacation. Kudos to the owners who have a real flair for making their guests happy!

We ended up staying at the Motor Lodge based on Tripadvisor reviews and couldn't have been happier, or more pleasantly surprised. The owners have taken a 1930s travel motel and made it into an extremely appealing (and comfortable) sort of time capsule lodging. From the chairs on the patio, to the period kitchenette, to the gas fireplace and California King bed, it was the most fun we've had in a long time. Extremely friendly and helpful check-in person (they offer you beer or wine!). Fresh-baked cookies from one of the owners on check-out. Frankly, it's worth a trip to Prescott just to stay at the Motor Lodge.

Bikers’ nirvana although we were the only ones there that night. Real cute place. Easy walk to town and covered parking attached to the room fit both bikes nicely. Bicycles and Tricycles hanging on the wall in most garages and a nice gas fire pit lit after hours and chairs on the office patio. A cute touch was the bread box in our kitchen had an array of bread related literature and a classic Bread CD. The showers are built for tall people.

Room Tip: Easier parking in the two rooms streight up the drive for biger vehicals.

Location: convenient walk or bike ride to town square, one block from Granite Creek Trail, convenience store right next door.

Décor: funky retro, very well done.

Comfort: rooms were very comfortable although not large, plenty of room to put stuff and not trip over it. Lots of electrical outlets. Bathroom is very narrow, but it hardly interfered with a great stay. All the rooms have some sort of outside seating area. We stayed in room #9 which has perhaps the largest deck.

Extras: the free bicycles and welcome beer/wine are a very nice touch.

Really though, the staff at Motor Lodge (owners and employees) were very friendly and accommodating during our stay, which makes a stay anywhere more pleasant.

Stayed here for a night passing through Prescott. We were greeted at check-in with a choice of wine and beers and shown to our room. The room itself was perfect; big, spotless and comfortable. Also gave us a great dinner recommendation. If anyone i knew was even vaguely in the area I would insist that they stay here. Perfect.
