I stopped over in Flagstaff on my way back to Tempe from hiking Havasupai so I could visit the Lowell Observatory. The Highland Country Inn surpassed my expectations based on the price and type of property.
As a single traveler, the Pros: The room (#111) was very clean, smelled good and had newer carpet and furnishings. The bathroom was adequate; the shower was good and didn’t lack hot water and the towels were average, but okay. The bed was comfortable and was outfitted with good linens. The room had a refrigerator, small microwave, TV and high-speed internet access (although I did not use). And if on the 1st floor it’s very easy to bring in travel bags because you park outside your room.
Cons: The pillows were flat and not very good/comfortable, the noise level of the road wasn’t too loud (the hotel is set off Milton a few yards or so. I could hear footsteps above and running water from the adjacent room (not sure if above or beside). However, when traveling, I wear earplugs so each of these was of no consequence.
Neutral issues: The soap and shampoo were miniature sized but adequate. Rooms have outside entrances, so that may concern some.
Summary: All in all, this is a decent accommodation for a brief stay and I will visit again when in town.More
