Howard Johnson Inn - Flagstaff
Ranked #55 of 65 Hotels in Flagstaff
Reviewed 18 November 2013

This hotel was fantastic value for the price, so much so we extended to stay an extra night. Room was renovated, modern and very clean. Very well equipped with coffee maker, fridge, fast wifi, lots of hanging space, full length mirror and shaving mirror but no microwave, Brand new bathroom with large shower (no bath). Overall the room looked exactly like the photos, so I'm not sure what the previous reviewer was talking about (perhaps not all the rooms have been renovated. In regards to noise there is a pub next door with live bands and train noise intermittently which was sometimes quite loud. A sold out country music concert next door could only just be heard in our room, but I think the train noise would be of concern to light sleepers. Walking distance to Sizzler, Burger King, Taco Bell and a bunch of other restaurants. The hotel even had its own restaurant but we did not try it out. Around 1.5 hours drive to Grand Canyon. Checkout is 10am, if I had one suggestion it would be to make this later. Breakfast not included but can't complain for the price, excellent value.

Room Tip: Front room was clean and modern.

Walked in mid/late afternoon and asked to see a room, this was done in a very ungracious manner, thankfully the room we viewed looked very clean and modern; the guy on reception would do well to understand a little more about customer service! This place has clearly had a recent facelift and the rooms are very clean, nicely furnished and a good sized. Fridge but no micro.
We requested a room as far from the road as possible due the rail line across the road - these trains are loud and go very regularly at night!
Stayed 2 nights. Good value. lots of parking and easy access to all routes.

Room Tip: Request a top floor and as far away from the road as possible

If I was able to give this motel a 0 I would. First off, the pictures are not accurate. We took some actual pictures of the room and location we were given. I booked this room through Expedia and I think that was my first mistake. When we arrived to the property, the looks of the front of the building were off putting, however we figured it was just for 1 night. We went into the office and were issued our room keys and told our room was "around back". The only access was from the street and when we made our way back there, it looked like a Section 8 apartment complex. Our room was in the corner next to a storage room for the restaurant. There was a bicycle chained to the pillar right in front of our door and it appeared that there was someone living in the room on the second floor. We went into the room, which smelled musty and had brown recluse spiders in the bathroom. There was extremely loud Spanish music blaring from what we think was the restaurant. We laughed so hard out of total shock and knew we couldn't sleep there. As we were getting into our vehicle to leave, there was a creepy man in a van with no windows staring at us. We Googled "best hotels in Flagstaff" and found the an actual hotel,
which honored an Internet price I had found. The manager, staff and room were amazing and we ended up staying 2 nights. We were out the $44 for this Howard Johnson room, however I guess it was worth the lesson learned. Sad because growing up we had both stayed in Howard Johnson Hotels that were nice. Too bad I can't upload the pictures of what this motel actually looks like. P.S. Ho-Jo I want my $44 back.
