Our family of four just checked out today and we wanted to get online as soon as possible to rave about our experience at The Motor Lodge in Prescott. We had just touched down in Phoenix when we received a call from Joe that our room was ready ahead of the scheduled-check in time and we could go ahead and get in it as soon as we wanted. We arrived from the drive up from Phoenix and were pleasantly greeted by Joe and offered a drink on the house.
Other guests were sitting out on their patios, relaxing at the end of the day and it just felt like you were driving back into your childhood where people hung out, greeted each other and hung out.
Unit #5 was waiting for us: vintage 60s decor, carport, tandem bike for our use and loads of personality and charm in our room. I told Joe that the coffee table had to have been from my grandmother's estate sale, because I remember one exactly like it growing up - Brian said it was, in fact, his grandmother's table. Several types of old-style phones, from the old box phone with crank to the wall mount with rotary dial adorned the place. The lamps, side tables, vinyl couch, various transistor radios... all took me back to when I was a kid and hanging out with my cousins. Of course, the Liza Minelli needlepoint pillow completed the deal.
The stove was not functional, but we weren't going to use it. Microwave and coffee maker worked fine and that's all that was necessary. The beds were comfortable and the tvs were modern (much to our kids' liking). The old orange toy truck that cradled the lotions, soaps, and shampoo on the bathroom counter was a perfect touch.
As you can tell - we loved our stay. The ambience, the friendly reception and subsequent help with dinner and night activites just really started our vacation off on the right foot.
You're in a quaint little corner of the world - might as well ride the wave and stay in a real piece of Americana. The Motor Lodge will not disappoint. We will stay there again if we're ever back this way.
