My husband and I were in the Phoenix area house hunting and decided to take a trip north and check out Prescott- we called a few days ahead of time and by some stroke of luck they had a cancellation. We booked our room for 2 nights and I was so impressed with every detail. We were welcomed with beers,...

This place was great! We got the phone call early that day saying they were ready for us if we wanted to check in early. Arrived to be welcomed with a glass of wine, cold beer and soft drink for our daughter. The decor was great fun for my husband and me, our daughter had never seen a rotary phone....

Don't bother looking anywhere else in Prescott for accommodation... in fact if you are visiting Arizona ... arrange your trip to get here... its a tourist attraction in its own right. The hospitality is amazing, the decor is out of this world and the location is perfect - a gentle stroll into town to the delights of "Whiskey Row" yet...

Pulling our car into our own garage bay (right next to the room) and seeing the retro chandelier hanging above (on an automatic timer, no less) was the first of numerous interesting, welcoming, and accommodating impressions this place made on us. In our room, a gas fireplace set in a stone hearth, controlled by the thermostat... a phone call during...

Go no further, my weary travelers! This is THE place to stay! We are repeat offenders for this lovely retro-funky-friendly place! The owners and assistant are amazing with customer service! Their hospitality knows no bounds as they greet you with a drink and a smile. Upon checkout, each of our party received a "care-package" of homemade cookies...yum! Thanks again for...

Stayed one night in room 10. Offered a glass of wine/beer at checkin which was a nice touch to help unwind from the drive. Was shown the room and features, very personal. Comfy bed, awesome fireplace, fun retro furnishings including a retro kitchen area. The porch had a great 'traffic light' that came on automatically at dusk. You get your...

This quirky, delightful, independent lodge will take you back in time, to the days when folks sat on their porches and visited with their neighbors. My husband and I had only one night to enjoy the Motor Lodge, and would love to come back. Truly unique and well planned, from the old Stardust Hotel headboard, to the 1955 comics in...
