After driving from Las Vegas, we wanted to find a hotel in Flagstaff, so as to leave early the next morning to go to the Grand Canyon.
I checked my "Room Saver" Coupon Book ($48.99) and decided upon TRAVELODGE - UNIVERSITY. It was conveniently located on Historic Route 66 and close to the Hwy 180 which would bring us to Grand Canyon.
We came from the direction of the I-40 and got off at Exit 191
The Travelodge amenities included: at-door parking, which I like, In-room coffee makers, Cable TV, Free high speed internet, all rooms with microwave oven/fridge, continental breakfast.
Coupon Books can be found at Welcome Stations and rest areas and coupons are based on availability.
Hey I just found a new webiste called www.flagstaff-hotels.net ... it gives info and weblinks to various hotels in the Flagstaff and surrounding areas. Something to check out when your surfing and looking for info on Flagstaff rooms.
When I went to Flagstaff in 1998 in order to dicuss student exchange programmes, I was stationed in the NAU-hotel and I very much enjoyed it. Student of the hotel school manage this hotel and it is quite luxurous. Furthermore, the students are rather naive, so when you ask for a simple brandy, your glass will be filled really well.
When you DO need a smoke (within the hotel it is not allowed) just have a walk along the campus. Do not feel afraid, cause a kind of police cars will follow you everywhere (especially at 5 a.m.)
Wow, the air is really cripspy over there, smoking a cig at night or early morning!
Very nice campground. A very convenient location, with Williams just down the road. There is a fee, and the season runs from May thru October.
Right by a lake, with lots to do. They also have many trails.
Wigwam motel Holbrook ( 1950 ). Lou Diamond Phillips filmed a few scenes here for the Indian classic ' The Dark Wind' by the great Tony Hillerman.
Actually, it's not really a public type of accommodation. This is the dorm I lived in: Cowden Hall. Actually is was called a Learning Community. I was sure that the office had made a mistake when they placed me here, because this particular dorm was designed for serious, straight-A students on Honor programs. Moreover, most of the inhabitants were Freshman, while I was registered as a Junior. Nevertheless, I did end up in Cowden and I had a great time anyway. My roommate, Jenn, was very sweet. Even when I went out every night and got home about the time she had to get up.. (She was in the ROTC program.)Lots of respect to her; she got up at 5 am almost every morning for P.E.!
