Lovely retro motor inn close enough to downtown Prescott to walk there. Very comfortable rooms, decorated accordingly for the era in which I grow up! The owners are extremely pleasant and fun. Every room has a little deck out front from which you can have a cocktail and chat with your neighbors.

The room was really lovely, we actually wished we'd had more time in Prescott and would have liked to stay there. Will definitely have to next time I'm visiting family. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was adorable though we didn't make use of it. Also, would love to use the fireplace when it gets cold! It's in a great...

I'm Platinum at Marriott, Diamond at Hilton, and neither of them treat me as well as I was treated (along with my wife) last weekend. This is just a fabulous place. From the moment Brian (owner) checked us in, we knew we were in for a treat. We were greeted with complimentary wine/beer prior to being shown to our room,...

Lodge is completely remodeled with a very modern theme. Great location with easy access to square and other attractions. The resident cat is a hoot. Owners very friendly and accommodating. Glass of wine upon arrival was a special touch

We stayed in the Stardust honeymoon suite. Gorgeous! Joe the owner was so great, even gave us a glass of wine e on arrival! They had a headboard from the honeymoon suite at the Stardust plus an old menu. Bathroom was ultramodern. Great attention to detail everywhere on the property. Will definitely be back!

Very helpful, very friendly staff ( actually a sympathetic guy, supposedly the proprietor who runs the place). For friends of trendy tasteful design places it's a must stay. You like to stay in the perfectly decorated room, clean and well maintained, ac, tv, wifi - marvellous! Motor Lodge is three blocks from the square in the town centre on Montezuma...

There are enough reviews for this motel that I don't feel the need to reiterate them again for you, the reader. You by now about the welcoming feeling, the drinks, the personal touch, etc. blah blah blah. But there is a tabby that has the run of the property that did it for us. Don't know his name, but with...

My husband and I stayed at The Motor Lodge for 2 nights and it was the very BEST! Upon arrival we were greeted with wine and beer and given great recommendations for restaurants near by (El Gato Azul & The Barley Hound...both were AMAZING). Our "classic" room had a huge comfy bed, eclectic art, a front porch for hanging, a...

We travel quite a lot, and I'm sure like us, many of you are tired & bored with the typical hotel/motel experience? For sure, mark this on your list of places you MUST STAY in Arizona! I urge you to break away from the crowd to experience something better! The owners bought this very old run-down motor lodge (typical of...
