My husband and I stayed here April 2010 and had a lovely time. From the moment we arrived Brian and Joe were so welcoming with a laid back easy charm.
Our room was cosy and comfortable. The only thing to be aware of is the overhead shower is in a rather small cubicle, which means you can't get your head out of the spray so have to wear a cap whilst showering, unless you are planning on washing your hair, and the long over hang of the tap at the wash basin means you can't bend over it very easily to wash your face, but....the quirkiness is all part of the fun of staying somewhere different. If you want the bland precision of a chain hotel then stay elsewhere.
The table and chairs set outside each room, makes for a pleasant place to sit and relax with a book in the afternoon, or a candle lit chat with fellow guests in the evening. Having a fridge in the room is handy to keep drinks and snacks cool, although there is a convenience store only a short way down the road. Prescott itself is great, with plenty of places to eat, and drink, all within strolling distance.
When we left, Brian suggested a very scenic route for us to take on our route back to Vegas (the original Route 66) and gave me a jar of local honey to take home with us. It tasted great by the way.
Nothing is too much trouble for the owners, so just ask. It is the small touches that made such a difference to our stay in Prescott, and I have no hesitation in recommending The Motor Lodge to anybody who appreciates a bit of individuality.
