“All that and more”
Reviewed 1 February 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the motor lodge this last weekend. We were in room 7 which had a cozy fireplace and lots of interesting art. When we arrived Kim showed us to our room and made sure we were all settled in. This is a great property very fun and interesting. There is free parking,wifi and a fridge in the room. But it's the customer service that makes this property stand head and shoulders above any other property in Prescott. This place has a really fun mid century modern vibe. We will definitely stay there again when we are in Prescott. Thanks for a great weekend!

Spent one suite night at The Motor Lodge, with my daughter and 2 grandson's. We arrived late , a note was placed on the office door greeting us,fireplace was on, beverages in the refrig. If you want nostalgia, this is the place to stay, clean, quiet and comforting.

Been meaning to stay here for awhile and finally did. Cozy fireplace, nice host's, definitely clean and comfortable for a small little hotel. They give you a drink when you arrive and are very helpful with ideas and suggestions of where to go depending on what you are looking for. Lots of character in this place if you are looking for something different, which I was. Downsides, a little bit further of a walk to whiskey row than we thought. Probably not a big deal normally but we were freezing. Not ideal in winter. My husband was not crazy about the bed and said it was not comfortable, and the bathrooms were especially small. Not a huge deal to us but may be to others. Overall we had a very nice stay it just wasn't as spectacular as I expected based on the other reviews.

My son and I stayed in the two bedroom apartment unit 12 for one night while visiting a local college. I was disappointed that we couldn't stay longer. The apartment was fun, immaculately clean and comfortable. We arrived later in the day and it was unseasonably cold. We were greeted by space heaters that had been added to our rooms to keep us cozy and some cold water and beer in the fridge. It was such a welcome gesture at the end of our long day.

The only negative that I could mention is the size of the bathroom and shower; however, this wouldn't be an issue for everyone. The bathroom was small and made it difficult to juggle toiletries for two people. It wasn't a big deal for one night but would have become a pain if we had a longer stay. The shower is probably 2 x 3. If that doesn't appeal to you then I would ask for a different unit.

We loved The Motor Lodge and will definitely stay there again on a future trip.

Room Tip: If a small shower is a problem for you, then request a different room.

Brian, Joe and Kim are the best. Full of lunch/dinner recommendations when we asked. Great for conversation. Great mini tour guides. ( I was able to see the rooms no one else had checked into yet) They all look really groovy! If it hadn't been 11 degrees I might come back more often, but that isn't there fault. They did manage to wrangle up a little snow for us. Thanks for a great visit. When I come back to Prescott I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

We spent another amazing weekend at the Motor Lodge. Joe, Brian and Kim are the best hosts/hostess around. We stayed in room 5 this time. Things don't stay the same at the Motor Lodge for very long. They are always putting in something different and new. We are looking forward to seeing the new deck for room 5, hopefully, by the Summer. Expect to be treated like old friends and enjoy meeting other guests of the Lodge. There is a strong sense of community when you stay here. The absolute best place to stay in Prescott!

Room Tip: All rooms have their own unique charm...try them all.

This place is #1 in the area for a reason- very friendly owners- beer/wine on arrival and freshly baked cookies on departure were very nice little touches. We were also given excellent recommendations for dinner/breakfast and routes to walk around the town. The room we got was very comfortable with a snazzy retro feel. All in all an excellent experience.

Also make sure you sink a whisky or 5 on whisky row- the bars had a real wild west feel!
