“A Retro Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2012

It is hard to leave this retro Shangri-La after being greeted by Kim so graciously and being "hosted" by Brian and Joe, the owners. They have put love and care and retro details everywhere. We felt we were staying at someone's home/compound and we greeted the other lucky journeyers there with a kind of smile of, "Aren't we lucky we're the chosen ones who are in the aegis of Joe and Brian (and Kim)!" Suggestions of where to eat and where to go, depending on one's interests are happily given. We very much recommend The Motor Lodge. Bicycles are available to use gratis, and most rooms have a covered carport. The other reviewers are right on.

This is a great place to stay! Everything you read about The Motor Lodge is true. From the moment that you arrive Kim, Brian & Joe are greeting you. We arrived early & our room wasn't ready yet so my boyfriend & I decided to walk to Whiskey Row (about a 3 block walk). We were gone around 4 to 5 hours & when we returned to our room Brian had left fresh baked brownies & a note telling us that he had filled an ice bucket with ice for us & had left it in the small refrigerator. The rooms are quaint, with a great retro decor theme. The patio area out front was nice & relaxing to sit at in the evening hours. We will defintely be back the next time we visit Prescott. We live in the Phoenix area & will gladly spread the word about this jewel in Prescott.

What a pleasant surprise. As others have noted, met with cheery smile, a cold bottle of beer and a complete introduction to the remodeled 111 year old Motel. Room was cozy (bathroom fitting of an old Motel - that is, small), and quiet. Came complete with covered car port (very welcome in the June heat). Got recommendation for Italian dinner (Papa's Italian Restaurant - see review on Trip Advisor - excellent restaurant). Would stay here again for an overnite stop!

From the moment we arrived to check in at The Motor Lodge and were greeted by Kim with a big friendly smile, a bottle of beer for my husband and a glass of wine for me, we knew we were in for a special treat in Presott. The owners, Joe and Brian, have taken personalized customer service to a level of excellence that we have seldom experienced when traveling. Our room was clean, decorated in sort of a hip/retro style and the king size bed was super comfortable! We loved the patio out front and spent time visiting with "the neighbors" every evening we were there; Joe and Brian have created such an atmosphere of friendliness. The hotel is located just a couple blocks from Whiskey Row and the Historic Downtown Court House Square area; there are many restaurants and plenty of unique shops nearby. Joe even delivered fresh baked homemade brownies to my husband on his birthday, the second night of our stay. We are already planning our next trip back, not just for the delicious home baked choolate chips cookies we got "for the road" at then end of our stay, but also for the great value. Stay here, you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Every room is unique; I don't think there's a bad one in the bunch. Room 9 is known as the...
