“What a treat !”
Reviewed September 24, 2009

Built in the early 1900's as individual cabins, renovated in the 40's with common roofs and car ports, the aptly named Motor Lodge is an eclectic gem ! Joe and Brian clearly understand customer service and hospitality with beverages, warm cookies, fruit and a welcoming attitude for every guest.

Rooms are wonderfully decorated, beds and linens are soft and first rate with every room spotlessly clean! Our room (#8) had a living room, kitchen and large bedroom with 2 queen size beds and was a perfect home for our participation in the historic Prescott car show.

A wonderful weekend getaway we'll revisit at every opportunity. Thank you Briian and Joe !

When you are attending a car show, where better to stay than a motor lodge? The Motor Lodge was a blast. Joe and Brian are simply the best hosts I've ever encountered anywhere I've stayed. Our room was warm and comfortable. We had a chance to see our travel companions' rooms. No two the same. No corporate feel or look. The carports were great for keeping our shiny clean Corvettes away from the potential mountain showers. A lot has already been said about the cookies and beverages offered on check-in. In addition, Joe brought our group a bowl of grapes to enjoy after dinner.

We highly recommend the Motor Lodge. We are looking forward to returning many times.

George and I found our second home at the Motor Lodge. Greeted by
Chopper, embraced by Joe & Brian, and bid farewell with a little sack of
warm cookies. We're going to remember our visit for a long time, and,
we're not telling anyone else. Its one of our best kept secrets.

There is something special about this place. From the minute you arrive and are greeted with a glass of wine or a beer of choice, to the minute you leave, I promise you will love every minute of your stay! The rooms are beautifully decorated with a retro contemporary flair, and the beds are really comfortable with top notch bedding! The location is within walking distance to Whiskey Row and many great restaurants. But honestly, above and beyond everything is the unbelievable service you receive from Joe and Brian. They are amazing hosts that make you feel like a friend in their home. I mean they even bake you fresh cookies every evening! We left feeling like we made 2 new friends and definitely plan to come back to visit again! Thank you Joe and Brian!!

My partner and I traveled up there for weekend at the school and Joe and Brian have a diamond classed place to stay. From the moment you drive in to the time you leave, We did not want to leave. The rooms are wonderful, the hospitality is first class. We have booked already for November so we do not miss out on another fabulous weekend stay. If you want to step back in time to a time when life was not so fast paced, the motor lodge is the place to be.

I almost hate to write a review because this place is so wonderful that once people discover it, I will no longer be able to get a reservation!

Actually, I feel fortunate to have discovered The Motor Lodge because I visit Prescott quite frequently and have been looking for a great place to stay that is close to Whiskey Row.

The owners, Brian and Joe, make you feel like fast friends the minute you check in. They are a wealth of information about the area and make great recommendations for places to eat.

The entire property, including the rooms are fun, trendy and clean with the most comfortable beds.

I can't wait to go back to Prescott, see Joe and Brian, and stay at The Motor Lodge. Thanks for a terrific experience.

My partner and I decided to take a day trip to Prescott, from Phoenix, wanted to get out of the heat. We decided to head to Whiskey row in Prescott. Once we got there and had a bite to eat we decided to spend the night. We had heard about the Motor Lodge here on Trip advosr and decided to check it out.
WOW, it was perfect. We were greeted by Joe and Brian and their dog Chopper. As we checked in, Joe offered us a glass of wine, and then proceeded to give us some great advise for dinner. The Lodge was awsome, I felt like I was with family yet had our own space. The rooms were fashionable, hip and cool. the beds are to die for, I did not want to get out of them.
Even though our stay was short, I can't say enough good things about The Motor Lodge. We loved it.
Thanks again to Joe and Brian (owners) for making our short staycation better than ever.
We will be back!!!!
