Little America Hotel Flagstaff

Reviewed May 13, 2009

When we arrived, we were very impressed with the grounds, which are wooded and serene. However, there were several cracks in the facade, as we soon found out! For one, the a/c vents in some of the rooms were not opened after the winter season, so the air did not work for the first 24 hours day until maintenance came. Two, the pool was overrun with kids of all ages, as well as plenty of teenagers and young adults drinking up a storm. It was graduation weekend for N.A.U. so the place was filled to the brim with partiers. Before arrival, the front desk assured us that only parents would be staying on-site. Third, what others wrote about the showers is true. They run hot and cold and hot and cold, so one second you are freezing and the next your're burning! Maintenance blamed this on 68 year old nickel plated pipes that have never been updated to copper. No bottled water is left in the rooms for guests. There is no microwave. The patios do not open up and there is no room to sit on them and relax. Security was powerless to control all the party animals. The maids will knock on your door and call you in your room even if you have the Do Not Distrub sign on the door. Finally, trash from guest's room service meals was left in the hallways for over 24 hours and housekeeping did nothing to clean it up! Definitely not a classy place.

My sister and I love Little America for its decor, cleanliness, convenient location and friendly staff. The hotel is located near a highway, making it easy to access when travelling around North Arizona (Grand Canyon, Wupatki etc.) All amenities including a great gift shop, restaurants, gas station and even walking paths are right on location. The decor is vintage but not dated, it's really designed rather than leftover from old times. The park surrounding the hotel adds charm as well, there are song birds, squirells, and wonderful nature right outside your window.

We've stayed at some fancy, expensive hotels in the past - but our family of 5 was extremely (and surprisingly) happy with this HUGE room with comfortable queen beds, a separate sitting area with pull out sofa, a separate table, large two sink bathroom, etc. For the price, it's hard to beat. We stayed the first night and last night of our trip around the Four Corners. The decor was lovely, and everything was very clean. The only thing that was 'average' was the breakfast buffet. Great gift shop, reasonable prices. Loved the wooded area behind the hotel. We had 4 inches of wet snow, and the kids went out and played before we left. We had absolutely no train noise - it's pretty far from any tracks.

A great, individual hotel, definitely worth a visit if you are in the area and a nice change from the usual chains. We had a lovely room, large and luxurious, and there was a good atmosphere in the hotel, a blazing log fire, comfortable relaxing chairs and very helpful staff. There were no lifts and plenty of staircases.... don't go up the wrong one, check where your room is first! We had a meal in the hotel restaurant as we arrived quite late and this was average, but the service was slow. We made up for it the next morning with breakfast at Denny's, across the road.

I booked this hotel based on the advice of tripadvisor review and it was worth it!!!! My boyfriend and I wanted to do several activities while in Northern Arizona: Barringer Meteor Crater, Petrified Forest, Grand Canyon, Lowell Observatory, Spa. We were on a budget and wanted a good central location but also a reasonable, comfortable hotel to come back to at the end of the day. Little America was perfect.

It is 1.5 hours from the Grand Canyon, 1 hour from the painted desert and the petrified forest (amazing), 30 minutes from meteor crater, and 5 minutes from Lowell observatory. It is 1 hour from Sedona and the land of spa and sun.

The rooms were AMAZING. HUGE. I booked at the last minute online and expected a rinky dink room. We had a queen bed, fridge, huge bathroom and guest room. Clean and comfortable. The staff were super friendly and the prices for food was surprisingly reasonable (we come from New York City so maybe we arent the best to judge).

The hotel has a great fitness center, pool, and a 2 mile nature walk that allows you to soak in some calm and peace.

We were exceedingly happy with our choice and thanks to tripadviosr reviews for this. Great if you have kids or large groups.

This hotel absolutely exceeded our expectations in every way. My daughter and I only stayed one night on our way to Santa Fe. However, because of our experience , we plan to come back and make this hotel our destination. Our room was super large, clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the view of the trees and birds. During our stay, there was an unexpected snowfall which made everything even more beautiful. We walked in the snow along the trail behind the property. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and again, were pleasantly surprised. Our meal was not ordinary "hotel fare" but really tasty and beautifully presented. The hotel gift shop was yet another great find. The selection of items as well as the reasonable prices were amazing. All of the staff that we encountered from front desk, room service, wait staff, and gift shop personnel were friendly, courteous, and extremely customer-oriented. What a great find for us. And the price was extraordinary for the value we received. There were lots of families with teenagers and younger children as well as senior citizens and younger couples. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning to be in this area. Super!
