Little America Hotel Flagstaff is less generic than many of its competitors, with atmospheric decor inspired by Native American culture and the breathtaking scenery of the Southwest. It is set within 500 acres of beautiful pine forest on the outskirts of town and offers a variety of rooms and suites. These range from Double Rooms with two Queen beds to the ultra-luxurious, duplex Presidential Suite. All categories offer a sitting area or separate living room, a 55-inch HD TV, a Keurig coffeemaker and high-speed Wi-Fi.

During the summer months, spend lazy days relaxing by the hotel’s heated outdoor swimming pool. The hot tub remains open all year round and kids will love the seasonal North Pole Experience, which includes a trolley ride through the forest to Santa’s Workshop. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, head to Silver Pine Restaurant & Bar, where seasonal menu options range from burgers to tacos. The hotel is also a good choice for corporate guests with 10 meeting rooms and a full service business center.

A favorite pick for students and visiting families, Econo Lodge University is located a five-minute drive from downtown Flagstaff and within walking distance of several campus buildings. Although the decor is outdated, the rooms themselves are clean, comfortable, and convenient. Decide whether you want one King or two Queen beds and benefit from amenities including a coffeemaker and a TV with HBO and pay-per-view movies.

Complimentary continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi add to the hotel’s overall value. There’s an outdoor pool for cooling off in summer while cold weather hook-ups in the car park let you plug in your vehicle’s block heater in winter. Use the laundry to freshen up your wardrobe before the next leg of your Route 66 road trip. Lastly, the hotel is pet-friendly and although there’s no on-site restaurant, there are plenty of budget eateries within a few minutes’ walk.

Hampton Inn & Suites Flagstaff East enjoys a peaceful location outside the city center, within easy reach of Walnut Canyon and Sunset Crater Volcano national monuments. Before you depart on a family day out, fuel up on the hotel’s free hot breakfast or pour yourself a cup of coffee from the 24-hour stand in the lobby. Don’t feel like exploring? Stay back at base and let the kids spend a fun-filled day in the heated indoor pool. There’s even a hot tub for Mom and Dad.

All rooms have an LCD TV, free Wi-Fi, a mini-fridge, and microwave (so you can pick up basic food items from the on-site convenience store and heat them up in your room). Opt for two Queen beds, a King bed with a double sofa bed or a suite with extra space to play and sleep. Although there’s no restaurant, there are several family-friendly options nearby, including a popular pizza bistro next door. The hotel also offers cribs and high chairs.

Whisk your loved one away for a weekend at Starlight Pines B&B. Housed in a quaint, Victorian-style home complete with charming blue-and-white paintwork and a wraparound porch, the hotel offers a quiet location with stunning mountain views – yet is still an easy 10-minute drive from downtown Flagstaff. Inside, a wonderland of carefully curated antiques and Tiffany lamps awaits. Reviewers love the B&B for its unfailingly friendly hosts and its intimate atmosphere.

There are just four guestrooms, all of them individually decorated and fitted with luxurious claw-foot bathtubs. Measuring six feet in length, these tubs are big enough for a romantic soak for two. Choose the Lily Room to enjoy breathtaking Mount Elden views from the privacy of your own balcony, or the Dragonfly Room for the privilege of the only wood-burning fireplace in Flagstaff. Whichever you choose, your days at Starlight Pines start with a gourmet, two-course breakfast, the highlight of which is the host’s specialty Grand Marnier French toast.

In addition to its downtown location, Inn at 410 Bed and Breakfast has a storied past. It was built as a private home in 1894, then painstakingly restored before being re-opened as a guesthouse in 1991. Today, it is Flagstaff’s top-rated B&B with 10 uniquely themed guest rooms and suites. These include The Southwest, a two-room suite adorned with Native American arts and crafts; and The Conservatory, a turn-of-the-century tribute to Beethoven complete with a love seat and canopied queen bed.

All rooms have a fireplace, cable TV and a coffeemaker with Wolfgang Puck ground coffee. Triple-sheeted beds provide a blissful night’s sleep while the private bathrooms come with luxury Gilchrist & Soames toiletries.

The B&B has a complimentary open bar while all-inclusive rates cover off-street downtown parking, internet, movies and a delicious array of snacks.
