The L Motel

We were on a road trip and never knew when we’d be in what town, so I would come on TripAdvisor and look up the hotels in the town we wanted to stop in about half an hour before we got there, and book a room sight unseen. The reviews for this place sounded okay but we should have taken the hint when the GPS on my phone kept taking us somewhere else! We finally found the place and from the outside it looked a bit run-down but we gave it the benefit of the doubt. First thing we found was that our (ground floor) window didn’t latch. I think we’d gotten their last room and we were too tired to go look for another motel so my husband rigged up something to hold it shut. The neighborhood seemed pretty quiet so we didn’t particularly feel unsafe. The room seemed clean enough, although the bathroom wall had a huge hole around the shower head so the shower pipe flopped around when we used it. The bathroom didn’t seem terribly clean either. In the morning, I went to look at the “breakfast” in the lobby. It consisted of a jug of orange drink, a jug of apple drink, and assorted store bought “pastries” like Hostess or Little Debbie’s! I couldn’t find the desk guy to return the key so I went back to the room and helped my husband load the car. All of a sudden I turned around and the guy was standing literally about six inches behind me! We told him about the broken window latch and he took a cursory look at it and then basically begged me not to give them a bad review. All the while standing within just inches from me. Very unsettling.

We arrived to this hotel to have a base from which explore the area. The staff were incredible nice and helpful all the time. There was a breakfast included with coffee, juices (orange and cider), brownies, bagels ... really nice for the price of this hotel, which is on the Route 66! The room it was very clean and beds comfortable. Bathroom was big and a good shower. It is located near the road and for some people might appear a bit noisy in the morning but you are on the 66 route. We will definetely come back. Thank you!

Was dupped by favorable reviews on Tripadvisor. The place is a dump. Old interstate type motel. I would not and did not stay there. I would not walk on that carpet without shoes. My first inpression was not favorable and I inspected the room prior to check in and promply cancelled my reservation. Management was very pleasant however clientele was questionable and rooms were plain bad. It looks like they tried to put lipstick on a pig.

Rooms very comfortable, clean and the staff are very helpful. The reception man was very friendly and helped us with everything we needed. The only thing that could be improved is the Wi-Fi... it didn't work in our room and we found the best place we to have it is when sitting in the reception.

We stayed here on our way to palms springs for two nights! We went to see the Grand Canyon and wanted to be able to explore flag staff by night! It was a great centrally located hotel to be able to explore the downtown/historic area! We had a great experience and time at the L.

We booked a room for a very good price. It looks like the pictures. Service from the manager was perfect. Helped me print tickets and gave me information about touristic places. Free wifi, about 5 different channels. Everything is close by (5min walks) Town center, places to eat, the station etc.

We didn't feel that comfortable in that motel, but it was alright for just one night. The breakfast area is in the same room as the reception is. So you will have company from the motel host while you are eating. There was no air-con and therefore it was really hot in the morning when we had brekky. It was great to have at least some muffins in addition to white bread with jam. We experienced that the guy didn't know his way around this village well. He pointed us in the wrong direction, which was a bit annoying. I believe people at the reception should know where the next Supermarket or convenient stores are.

It is a family own motel. You can tell they work hard. Owners were super nice. Rooms were decant. One room had a dusty fan and we asked them to clean it within 5 minutes job was done. Location was good walking distance to their downtown. It is a kids friendly.

This was just a pleasant stay and the guy at the reception helped us as much as posible. We made a wrong reservation and he assisted to change it without charging more. In conclusion, all you can ask from a motel.

Close to downtown Flagstaff with ample parking and nice reception service. Our room was large and the bathroom had a window. Coffee making facilities in the room (but no tea bags), fridge and TV. Broken chairs outside. Peeling walls in the bathroom, ceiling must have had some accident, bad smell went away after some time (or we got used to it), tub needs to be changed! Rather noisy neighbours, but that's not their fault, it's the walls that are really thin. Breakfast sort of ok, good bread, packed muffins and biscuits, not really nice breakfast environment, barely fits four people all standing around the small counter. Again, no tea (why!? Isn't easy to provide some hot water and a couple of tea bags?). I do not think I would come back but for budget reasons. Rates during the week are good, but the place is not worth the money on weekends.
