“Living large in the past”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

50's style Motel with interior courtyard and parking at your room. Air conditioned and big TVs. Years ago that would have been a big draw, now a perfect place to relive the past. Excellent staff was very gracious to our group of Hot Rodders for the third year in a row. Rooms are very individual, clean, and comfortable. Excellent fun stop.

I like older hotels, non-chain hotels and historic properties. The Apache Lodge fits all three criteria. Though there were better known chain hotels at the same or even slightly lower prices, we chose this property on the basis of its charm and character. There is, apparently, a fairly wide distinction between the basic and the deluxe rooms we chose one of the basic rooms, at about $70.00 per night. It was very basic and featured virtually no amenities other than television. No breakfast. No coffee in room. Our room faced the highway. The hotel is located at the junction of a state highway and busy city street. So there was a fair bit of road noise. The beds were adequate, wifi strong and the staff was friendly. i hope that the peeling interior paint isn't lead-based. The hot water was anemic.

Shop around in Prescott and you will find better hotel deals. However, if you are a road history buff, this is an authentic motor court hotel from the 1940s. We liked it because we could park our Harleys right outside our room, out of the street view.

Room Tip: Stay away from the highway side.

My wife Ginnie & I spent a very comfortable night at the old Apache Lodge in Prescott last Friday. The price was excellent; the location was convenient; and the accommodations were both clean and comfortable. We especially appreciated the friendly staff.

Room Tip: Room #27 has a view of Thumb Butte.

We drove by apache motel and turned around bc the look of the hotel was appealing to us. Called John and he was extremely nice and excellent customer service! The room we stayed in was remodeled and looked amazing! The AC worked great and the heater that looked like a fireplace worked awesome! I would recommend this place!

This motel may not look like much from the street but it is really a nice motel at decent rates. The people are friendly. The rooms are small and a bit dark but OK. I enjoyed my stay here-it is a good old fashioned motel with a real key and not one of those magnetic keys that always seem to mess up. The towels are thick, good assortment of items in bathroom. Two complimentary bottles of water in the refrigerator. My room did not have carpet which -to me- was great. Not only is a wood floor easy to clean but it seems to me it would be more sanitary. Beds are great. The internet is good but I could not access it on the second day. Perhaps they change the password every day, I do not know. But, I did not get back to the room (after visiting with friends) until around 9PM and I lonly use it to check on emails and send emails so it was not that important .So, I did not check to see if the password had been changed or if the internet just was not working. It had worked that morning with no problem. My one suggestion is to put hand holds in the bath or a bath mat or replaced the bath mat strips as the tub was a bit slippery. However, the water pressure was great as was plenty of hot water. Ice is 25 cents which is OK as I seldom get ice at the motel. However the rooms are centered around a patio (I think they are a few more rooms outside and behind the patio) so everything is close and easy to get to. I will be back as folks there treat you like a "GUEST" and not just someone staying in a room. I will stay here again.

We visited Prescott for a one night stay and found Apache Lodge online. The place is definitely a 50's era motel, very quaint adobe look with rooms in the process of being somewhat modernized. The office was charming with antique office gear, the manager was friendly and efficient. The rooms were on the small side but very clean, comfortable bed, nice hot showers, etc. This is NOT a luxury resort but if you want a nice inexpensive place to stay this place is it. The Lodge is within 1 mile of Courthouse Square and Whiskey Row, very convenient.
