Travel Blogs from Prescott
We didn't get a great sleep last night, there were heaps of trains going through the town, about 1 every 15 minutes and we could hear them tooting from our room. We woke up this morning to a lot of snow. Our car was completely covered! It was great to see but we weren't sure how we were going to go driving to Sedona. Alan used the plastic TV guide …
... in planning, no roadblocks in preparation, zero arguments from anyone trying to talk me out of it, and eventually total support from everyone once they understood what the Camino is about.
Somewhere along the way, I think it was around late February or early March, I was wondering for the umpteenth time why ************e was showing much enthusiasm or interest in my trip. How could that be? I was going to walk the historic El Camino de Santiago for pete's ...
... Arizona. Big day - rode 409 miles (660 kms). We're dropping down from the high desert country so warming up. Tomorrow heading for Yuma - hot as hell...... Had a few beers at a historical old hotel where the Earp brothers used to drink & ...
... for Gumball Rally (1976) in the morning. An Econolodge came up first and then a slightly cheaper Motel 6. So we opted for the latter (Harry was free in a two bed room) and paid $71 (including wi-fi). Our suitcases had barely entered the room when I was suddenly in desperate need of a beer - it's a 'long-hot-day-on-the-road-on-holiday' thing. Motel 6 is reliable and cheap. You get everything you want in the small double en-suite room and the air conditioning always ...
... into her pads and lower leg. But had she complained? Nope. Cholla, Kevin told us later, is also known as Jumping Cactus, because it almost seems alive when it snags you. It's a tenacious little *******, with barbed spines that are loaded with neurotoxin and huuuuuurt, which Chris discovered when he pulled them off Athena WITH HIS HANDS. She looked appropriately grateful, took three steps, and promptly picked up five more cholla pads. Chris also found a group of ten stuck to -- ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hassayampa Inn Prescott
Can't take simple reservations
The hotel is ok but taking something as simple as a reservation and keeping it straight seems to beyond the staff's capacity to handle. I made two reservations one for one night and one for later that week for two nights. when I arrived for the first they had two rooms booked not one. I was assured that the second reservation was fine. later that week I had not received a confirm so I called and they had lost the second reservation. I would hate to see what they would do with a booking of anything larger then 1 room when they can't handle a simple room reservation. save yourself the aggravtion and stay somewhere else.
A piece of history..
I have stayed at this lovely lady a number of times. I travel quite a bit for business and get tired of the cookie cutter rooms that are provided on a nationwide scale.
This is a hotel that is designed for the traveler who enjoys something different, something a little out of the ordinary and who loves to be surrounded by the history of the place.
The food is wonderful, the staff very helpful and you can't find a better spot for a nightcap than in the bar right off the lobby.
I can stay anywhere I choose and I choose the Hassayampa each time.
Sometimes historic is just old...
The Hassayampa may be historic, but in my book it's just old. There is nothing charming about this place at all. The rooms are small, the bathrooms border no terrible. The staff appears essentially indifferent to guest needs and cannot seem to handle any requests beyond giving you the room key. The location is reasonable for Prescott but finding parking (across the street) appears to be an exercise in mystery that nobody at the hotel can advise on. Save your money and check into the Marriott (SpringHill Suites) down the road. At least you know you'll be in the 21st century!
OK, would stay there again.
Stayed there one night. Room was clean, but small. Bathroom was tiny, and had to scoot around the bed to get to it. Otherwise, was just OK-location is great; right downtown. Lobby is beautiful, and if you remember that this is an older hotel, you will enjoy yourself. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Pricey and just ok
It was pricey and not that great, I read the other reviews and thought of giving it a try.
The hotel is certainly well located, downtown. You can smoke there, but again, you can smoke ANYWHERE in Prescott. That's actually annoying, if you are a non-smoker.
Bed was good, room too small. I give it a "2" for the price x what you really get.
Nice and worth it
The elevator was cool and the breakfast was great.
At least I could smoke!
It's hard to find a smoking room these days, and I was glad to find one here. It was a little pricey, but at least we had a chance to relax and it was downtown. They allowed smoking in the bar and restaurant too, which was very nice. The rooms are a little small but the lobby is nice to sit in. I liked it.
Built during the great age of jazz, in a historic and very quaint mountain town; our recent stay at the Hassayampa Inn, was spectacular! Super frindly staff, cozy small period rooms with great cushy beds, ambience extradinaire! Restaurant superb! And live jazz in the lounge! Heck, it;s right off the square and the best Prescott has to offer! Will recommend to all!!!!
Very pleasant and friendly; great breakfast
wonderful old hotel... walking distance to historic downtown... Elegant for an old West Hotel - rooms are small but comfortable. Breakfast is included and its great food, with a charming dining room and an inclusive menu. Staff were all pleasant, the windows do open and I did have a thermostat in my room. All in all, a nice experience and an interesting small town.
We stayed at the Hassayampa Inn on our 22 Wedding Anniversary July 27, 2002. The room we stayed in was nice, but obviously under construction during the week. The Hotel is very nice, with the breakfast included in the price. A very nice sit down breakfast and the service was Excellent.
