Great Hotel - 8/11-8/13/04
My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this Embassy Suites. We had a suite on the 3rd floor which was clean and in excellent condition. The hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating. The made to order breakfast and evening reception are a great benefit. The cook and bartender were both extremely friendly and knowledgable of the area. We ate one night at Oregano's which is an Italian restaurant within walking distance. The food was reasonable and very good. The Hotel is also located close to Route 40 which was very convenient. During our visit, we visited Meteor Crater, the Petrified Forest, and Lowell Observatory. They were all facinating and well worth the time. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
We just spent 5 nights at the this Embassy Suites. The staff here is A+. The bartender at the evening manager's reception was especially friendly as was the cook at the morning breakfast. The location is great for exploring Sedona, Grand Canyon, Painted Desert etc.
EMBASSY SUITES TOO LOUD
I felt this hotel was nice, but I was really disappointed with the noise. One night, there was constant running through the hotel halls. I was on the first floor and could hear all of this. I would fall a sleep only to be woke up by running and it sounded as if the whole floor was coming down. Poor construction? I don't know what the deal was, but I was not happy not being able to enjoy a good nights rest at $159 a night. The other thing that bothered me is I was in a nonsmoking room, however the room smelled like smoke. The hotel was also going through some type of remodling project which left a mess in the parking lot. Flagstaff temps are too cold for a lot of swimming. This hotel offered an outdoor pool, but seemed to forget a heater for it. The better plan would have been to skip the pool and make the hot tub larger. Last but not least, I felt the rooms were a little on the dark side. I would not have been so frustrated with this property if it weren't for the running and noise.
Great Location & Hotel
My husband and I just spent 9 days at the Embassy Suites and have no complaints! The location was perfect for everything we wanted to do and see. It's close to Sedona, the Grand Canyon and other attractions. And it's under 3 hours to Laughlin if you want to do some gambling. But the best is the "made to order" breakfast EVERY morning! We ate like kings every day. The staff was also very helpful with questions that we had. I highly recommend this hotel.
Quiet. Great Breakfast
We stayed here for a week in May 2004. The hotel is located close to Northern AZ University and away from the railroad tracks so we didn't have the train noise that we saw in other hotel reviews. The room sizes were adequate though not spacious but very clean and comfortable, including the sofa bed. All of the staff were both helpful and friendly and the front desk clerk had preprinted directions to just about anywhere you'd want to go. The kitchen manager, Rob, whom I nicknamed the Eggzuberant Omeletteer, makes a great breakfast and he's both friendly and entertaining to watch while he works. If I have the occasion to go back to Flagstaff, I'll try to get a room there first.
If you're looking for a spot with a good made to order breakfast, quite, very clean, great location, laundry machines, pool and friendly staff you've found it. We stayed here after a long day at the Grand Canyon I wish we had stayed more than 1 night. Flagstaff looks like fun.
Nice hotel, especially for Flagstaff, which is not noted as an exotic location.
Good sound insulation; Quiet inside, even though located on heavily traveled Old Route 66 Clean, well kept 2 room suite; Friendly staff; Cooked-to-order breakfast was included, which easily saved us $25-$30/night (Traveling with 2 adults & 2 always hungry kids).
Family of 3 enjoyed their stay !
Simple, clean, & accomodating ! We stayed two nights w/our 4 yr. old son and enjoyed the newly renovated hotel. The only negative thing I can think of was that the coffee both in the room and downstairs was REALLY lowsy ! Complimentary cocktails and breakfast cooked-to-order each day were very convenient. Beautiful Barnes & Noble w/Starbucks (thank goodness !) across the street. Enjoy !
Enjoyed this Embassy Suites Hotel!
Our family of four recently(August 2003) stayed in the Flagstaff Embassy Suites. We loved the location and would definitely stay at the hotel again if we were to visit in the future. The cook-to-order breakfast every morning was terrific and was included in the cost of the room. For a family it was especially economical. The staff was courteous and helpful. The chef at breakfast was especially friendly and accommodating.
Pretty standard Embassy Suites operation in a nice location. Smaller Embassy Suite than most, 3 story. People were very friendly, breakfast was good. Smaller dining area than usual, but smaller crowd. Barnes & Noble across the street, NAU a short walk.

I keep wondering, did I get on the right plane this morning? After all, we did wake up at 5am, got dressed in a hurry, downed a cup of coffee and headed off to the airport. The flights were fairly uneventful, and it sure looked like the Phoenix airport I flew into.... 82 wonderful degrees, palm trees, a nice breeze. I wasn't thrilled with the …
... with so little traffic as well. Also most of the cars would pull over at the first opportunity to let us pass. The complete opposite of UK drivers who would nearly kill them selves before letting you pass.
... even puts her shoes in a plastic bag so they don't make her clothes dirty. She thinks of everything!
The Canyon is definitely very grand. We have flown over this thing twice now so we kind of understand the enormity of it, but to be here now standing in front of one small part of it is mind blowing and puts it into more perspective of how incredibly big it is. Simply amazing!
We had a walk around one spot where ...
... people, occupied between AD 1200 and 1400. Once a thriving river community, all that remains are partial walls of the structure and petroglyphs carved into the stone of a small canyon.
Then: the Blue Mesa, of which we learned that the formations consist of thick deposits of grey, blue, purple and green mudstones. No word yet on what a mudstone might be.
... was not a hardship, just a navigational problem.
Yes, we went wrong at first base, and turned right out of the hotel out of the wrong exit. Easily done, but within minutes we were being spat through a tunnel and out again in the opposite direction to the one we wanted to be going.
I guess it meant that we saw more than most, which has to be a bonus?
Unpicking ourselves, we then headed off back to Paradise Drive. Such a misnomer; and on down past the hugest and ...
