We took a spur of the moment trip to Prescott so we could kayak on Watson Lake and explore the town. I never thought the highlight of the trip would be our lodging at The Motor Lodge!! From the moment we registered to the moment we checked out, we were treated as house guests, not as paying customers. The little cottages were comfortable, with front porches to drink our morning coffee, or to sip the beer or wine offered by the management. They made suggestions for dinner, even making reservations for us, and asking us about our dinner afterwards. We kayaked on the lake, then took a bike ride into town. Don't expect high end bikes, but what the heck, we had fun anyway! The bathrooms were small, well, tiny, but it didn't seem to matter. It was fun to sit on the front porch and chat with a nice couple from Paris next door - and discuss our dinner experience with a nice couple from Canada 2 doors down. All in all, a fabulous experience. We will return!!!

Room Tip: As for a room with a porch and a covered garage. The 2 rooms on the end (#5 & #8) do not have p...

The Motor Lodge is truly a special place. It is a 50's and 60's style roadside motor lodge with the personal attention and service of a five star hotel. We were welcomed with a glass of wine, which is very nice after a day of air travel. The philosophy here is relax and have a good time. Joe, Brian and Kim are terrific. They are eager to help with information about the Prescott area. It rained during our stay and Brian wiped the water off the patio chairs and Joe brought the guests umbrellas! The rooms are amazing. They are each uniquely decorated in a fun/funky/retro style. We stayed in room 6, which has a king bed and a great bathroom. The room was spotless. We had a great conversation with Joe before we left and
he gave us directions for a scenic alternate route back to Phoenix. We're looking forward to our third stay at The Motor Lodge. Thanks Joe, Brian and Kim

Room Tip: Choose a room with a garage which will keep the car cool in hot weather or a motorcyle dry in wet we...

In true Trip Advisor fashion, this place is amazing, from the wonderfully decorated rooms (period) to the owners who make it all happen. Welcomed with a wine or beer and excellent instructions on everything at the lodge to recommendations on food and sites. This is a must if you're looking for something special. We stayed 5 days and would have stayed longer. Your own patio with chairs and charm of the past. Everyone there seemed to have the spirit of the 50ties and again, how nice can everyone be, really, everyone. Thanks and we look forward to it again and again....

This place is great, I only wish we could have stayed longer than one night. A warm welcome greeted us accompanied by a delicious cold beer and chat about the area and where to eat, what to do etc. The rooms are great, park your car right outside and they have bikes you can ride around on (unfortunately we couldn't as it was raining). On leaving you're given a bag of home made cookies which were AMAZING. Tip - try the Plaza bowl about a mile or so away, a really old school bowling alley with cool old decor and cheap games.

We stayed here 9/9/12 for our anniversary and it was great! Kim was so accommodating. The first room she gave us did not have a patio and she moved us to the "apartment" with grace and humor. We wanted to sit outside and enjoy the cool weather. The rooms are so enchanting all done in the 50's and 60's decor. She greeted us with a glass of wine and gave us cookies when we left. She was a joy to talk to. Everything was so clean. We love this place and will be back.

Room Tip: the apartment has two bedrooms and a larger kitchen although the bathroom is smaller
