If you're looking for 5 stars, a spa, and every service under the sun, skip this place. BUT if you're looking for a unique, historical experience definitely check this out. My group book a room with a private bath and one with a shared bathroom. We stayed one night as we were passing through and I honestly couldn't have been happier. New Years Eve had just passed and everything was still decorated for the season. The staff at the front desk and especially the bar were so friendly and helpful. If you stick around the bar long enough and strike up conversations you will meet people from all walks of life which is entertaining in itself. We played pool (free popcorn in that bar; I believe there are 2 bars total), got drinks (warm spiked apple cider!), the boys enjoyed a cigar out on the balcony on a crisp winter night, and overall had an awesome time.

As for the rooms, they we spacious, warm, nicely decorated, clean and the beds were actually comfy. I definitely would not want to have that mattress at home for everyday sleeping, but for one night not a problem. The shared bathroom is shared among 4 or 5 other rooms, however I don't think those rooms were booked since I never saw anyone else using the bathroom but us. The private bathroom in our friends room was teeny tiny so I'm not sure it is worth the extra money. I guess it depends on the time of year you go. Either way both were clean. So if you are looking for a unique experience with friendly staff try it out as long as you're not expecting a 5 star hotel.

We hoped to book one of the rooms and have an event catered for a small group of under 30. The facility required almost $400 up front for a deposit and stated we had to spend $500 or more. As the date neared, the price kept changing...more for the catered meal, a charge or the linens, more charges and fees for every little thing....until the price was ridiculous. We have since been told that the food is awful anyway. We lost the deposit and booked elsewhere for an honest fee and great food!

The Weatherford Hotel is the best place to stay in Flagstaff! The locations is perfect, you can pretty much walk everywhere downtown or to campus easily. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful, they even let us store our mountain bikes in their dry storage while we were there. A special thank you to Matt for the great serivce and all your help!

Be warned though it can be very noisy at night (especially on the 3rd floor if you are close the Zane Grey Ballroom) but if noise doesn't bother you then this is a great place. Also, be prepared for a very small bathroom and unpredictable water temps.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite if you are looking for bigger rooms/bathrooms. The smaller rooms are a good inexpen...

spent one night, thank god, in the 'suite'. noisy as it was under some sort of staging area for the 'vintage' bar upstairs. bed was a lumpy mess. wall paper peeling, old and dingy.
for 130.00 we could have chosen many other options. stay away.

Room Tip: don't stay here

We were relieved to arrive in Flagstaff after a couple of nights in Las Vegas and found the staff at the Weatherford to be friendly and laid back (that’s not a euphemism for slow!)

Comments by other reviewers refer to the hotel being noisy & dirty - this is a tricky one - any sensible reading of the Weatherford’s website will show that the hotel is right in the middle of Downtown Flagstaff - plenty of bars, restaurants, interesting shops - and the Orpheum theatre is right next door. The hotel itself has bars with live music.
These were positives in my book, and our room was out of the way of the hotel bars, so we didn’t have any problems with internal noise, but I can see it might be a problem if you are trying to sleep in a room directly opposite the Zane Grey ballroom and it’s the weekend. (We had room No 42 which is at the back on the second floor. )

Our room & bathroom were very clean, the bed very comfortable - the furniture (again, I think the website shows this) is not new or modern - it has been chosen to enhance the 'Old West' which I think the owners are trying (pretty sucessfully) to achieve. If character is a problem for you don’t stay at the Weatherford. No TV in the room, but good wi-fi (and why you would want to watch TV when you can step out of your door and be in the middle of Flagstaff is beyond me). We ate in a couple of times - plenty of choice, lots of decent beers, reasonable prices. But there are lots of options for decent food within a very short walk - we had three fantastic breakfasts in three different places.

I have to agree that the annoying part was the lack of hanging space - we stayed for 3 days & it would’ve been nice to unpack., also there was the absence of any storage space in the bathroom. More annoying because the bathroom was spacious - maybe a case of style over substance here as the roll top bath was pretty but the shower impractical!

On balance the location of the hotel, charm of the decor and friendliness of the staff mean that if I’m ever lucky enough to visit Flagstaff again I would return to the Weatherford.

The hotel itself is old, but better than nearby similar hotels. The staff is very friendly, the bar upstairs has an awesome balcony and it's cool to walk around and look at the old furniture and photos. My room was big, airy, and bright, maybe a little too bright.

Spent a night here with a friend. Options for a room with 2 separate beds were between a room with shared bathroom or a single room plus cot as second bed. For USD150+, this is a disgrace. Especially as cot was dirty, room awful and tired and generally dirty. Stay away.
