“Unexpectedly good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Stayed for a night before our drive to the grand canyon. Booked thru expedia to find out that we have paid for the night already, so check-in was a breeze.
The American diner nearby was quite nice and "American" as we don't see this kind of stuff in Asia.

Well, our room was on the 2nd floor, so we need to carry our own luggage up, but everything else - bed, shower, hair-dryer all worked well.

The reception desk did an excellent job when a call for me could not be transferred to my room. He came to my door and let me answer to the wireless phone.

No complaints for a motel like inn!

So the hotel is located on Milton which is a main artery in Flagstaff close to a shopping plaza and it turns out that it is surprisingly quiet and very conveniently located. The plaza just down the block has a Safeway and a large laundromat with washers that take double, triple and quadruple loads. The room was clean and safe. Quick check in. Great value. After staying at the Radisson for a night after our rafting trip this worked really well and stayed us lots of money. Would definitely return.

We got stuck coming into Flagstaff coming from the Grand Canyion on a college "homecoming" weekend. We saw a good recommendation for the Budget Inn in Flagstaff, so, we looked at the ratings on TripAdvisor and booked.

We were not disappointed. The room was big, very clean, very quiet (considering how busy the road was) and an absolutely excellent value for the money. Bed was comfortable. Good walking distance to most anything you would want in Flagstaff.

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs room as far from the road as possible.

Stayed here for a couple of nights recently, room was clean and comfortable. Price was good, compared to other hotels in the area, and wi-fi was good.

Staff were a little slow (but I was checking in at 10.30pm, so understandable), but there were no issues with the room. Sink it outside the bathroom, which I feel often progresses morning routines when there are several people in a room!

Area feels safe and is close to Walgreens for any essentials, with a Target down the road for any substantial food; there are also several restaurants along the street for evening options. I would stay here again if ever in Flagstaff!

The staff were very helpful, had two big beds which are not usually associated with budget priced hotels. Nice big bathroom & toiletries. No facilities but free wi-fi
Fan in toilet noisy but staff said they were replacing a part , which was on order

I had seen generally favorable reviews on tripadvisor and booked based on that recommendation. Was a little worried when I first pulled up to the hotel as it didn't look particularly favorable to me from the outside. Check in was all manual and I had to pay for the two nights before even seeing the room. That was the end of the negatives though in general.

The room was quite clean, and well cared for. The facilities are a bit dated but they have definitely done a good job of keeping things painted and clean. Room was a fine size and everything worked. Furniture was in good shape etc. Really overall a solid room especially for the price.

Location is great, right on the main road to attractions like the Grand Canyon or Lowell Observatory. A Dunkin Donuts is going in across the street so in a few months a solid breakfast option will be right there as well.

Room was also quiet and no issues with outside noise or other rooms.

Overall an easy recommend for a budget stay. Not a lot of frills, but clean and quiet and in good repair.

Not bad as a base for visiting Grand Canyon. Clean, no frills kind of hotel. Good restaurants within a short drive and a Walgreen's and Galaxy Diner were within walking distance. The rooms are nothing fancy, but it was a good, affordable option for us.
