One of the best parts of traveling is meeting interesting people. In Prescott, we didn't even have to leave our motel to do that. Joe, the owner, was welcoming, friendly, fun to talk with and full of insights about the area. What won our undying affection, though, was when on our second day, we discovered our rental car had a...

The owners of this hotel love what they do and it shows. They have made this motel fun, super comfortable and reasonably priced. The beds are great, decor is funky and a variety of rooms for what your needs are. It is within walking distance of the old downtown area and it even offers covered parking for your vehicle next...

From the moment we checked in and were greeted by the two most amazing owners to our checkout full of tips of breakfast spots to check out on our way home, this place was THE BEST! The Motor Lodge has Palm Springs retro chic style DOWN! A short walk into downtown, ample parking right in front of your home-away for...

My husband and I stayed there while visiting family in Prescott, and found a great place to relax. The rooms are decorated with a respect for mid century modern, while being comfortable and cozy. We loved sitting out by the fireplace on the deck of the office, enjoying the night air. Joe even came out and brought us blankets. Walking...

Our visit to "Arizona's Christmas City" was made special by our stay in the delightful Motor Lodge. Attractive, exceptionally clean, comfortable and warm lodging thanks to the in-room gas fireplace and our friendly and accommodating staff (Amanda!) and hosts. Christmas Eve was a delight, complete with a snowstorm dropping 6-8 inches of snow and the generous offer by our host...

So love this place. A throw back to the 40s. Always clean and comfortable. We will stay again. They are so welcoming with a drink waiting for you at the door. Gas fireplaces outside in the evening to sit around.

We stayed here in October for a little vacation and decided to use Prescott as a base to wander around central AZ, very cozy accommodations, each unit was decorated differently and the Host was very friendly and helpful with recommending restaurants and getting us in to those restaurants, we would highly recommend The Motor Lodge and stay again. I would...

What a fun place! Convenient to walk to downtown and Whiskey Row. Got a great suggestion for tapas at El Gato Azul by the super nice lady at the reg desk (who also called us to let us know we could have our room early and how to make the scenic drive from Sedona through Jerome-highly recommended).

This is the cutest, hippest place in AZ, for sure! Loved the unique vintage items, the art, the atmosphere and the AMAZING customer service by the staff! And the warm cookies at check out were a nice touch too! We will stay here again!

We stayed at The Motor Lodge for one night, and would definitely stay here again. Great Location: The Motor Lodge is about three (short) blocks from the courthouse, and we were able to walk down to Whiskey Row in about 5-10 minutes. If that's too far for you, they also had beach cruisers that you could borrow (fair warning, it's...
