Left Amarillo, Texas around 0715 hours and we are going to try to make it to Flagstaff, Arizona.
The day started out nice and sunny, but chilly. Then, the WIND started - gale force winds, blowing trucks all over the road.
Then, the SNOW started and it just kept snowing! We traveled across the western half of New Mexico in a storm …
As our trip is winding down, we headed to Flagstaff so that we are nearer to Phoenix to fly back to Buffalo. Along the way we stopped at the Glen Canyon Dam. Although it is a national park and the visitor center was closed, we were able to walk along the bridge and take pictures of the dam. More beautiful scenery along the way as well. What a …
Today Betsy and I are up bright and early - we're driving to Flagstaff - an hour and a half away from the GRAND CANYON!! We load up the car and leave the house just after 8! Just a wee bit excited!! We're trying to be creative and come up with a fun nickname for our road trip, but can't think of something that's perfect. Ah well, plenty of time …
Hotel is nicest so far. Air is fresh, fir trees smell wonderful and we actually needed to put on a sweater tonight. Temperature was 77 today so shorts were the order of the day though. Still no rain, 31 days now. Travelling this time of year is great. It's not high season so things are not as busy and less expensive.
Scenery was beautiful …
It's amazing the drain packing and moving can take on all of your energy. Considering our 2nd to last night as residents of the beautiful State of California allowed us only 3 hours of sleep, we more than made up for it on our last night (and last morning). Carla's mom was nice enough to put us up in Embassy Suites so we wouldn't be tempted to …

La Quinta's "Pets Welcomed" policy (no additional fees for pets) keeps us loyal to their chain for all of our road trips. So when we decided to take a spur of the moment trip to the Grand Canyon, we stayed at their closest location.
This location was one of the nicer ones we've stayed at. Clean, modern, and nice sized rooms (accommodated 3 adults and 2 small-medium dogs comfortably). The property is also surrounded by trees & grass so there's plenty of space to walk the dogs. It's a little drive to the Grand Canyon but worth it if you're traveling with pets. The complimentary breakfast isn't anything to write home about but you can usually snag a decent muffin and fresh fruit.
It snowed our last night there, which we were unprepared for, but the staff had scrapers available to help us clear the snow off of the car.

Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn & Suites Flagstaff
We did not have a good experience. NOISY hallways. unclean room. Breakfast not good quality. The bed however was VERY comfortable and loved the desk in the room. I got a little attitude when I asked for a blanket to be brought up, but the person who brought it was very nice. I would not stay here again but they did honor our complaints with compensation so I give them credit for that. They need to make improvements.
I was there for just one night, but I really enjoyed the La Quinta. The room was huge, with a big desk and really quiet. The pillowtop bed was also comfortable. Theres a bunch of places to eat within a minute drive.
Would stay there again
The staff were very friendly and very helpful.
The shuttle service was handy for transportation to and from the airport.
The breakfeast buffet was really nice. It included cereal, bagels, make-your-own waffles, muffins and yogurt.
The room was neat and clean. It was quiet. The hotel is situated at the end of a short dead end so there is no traffic going by.
It is within walking distance of a couple restaurants.
I would stay there again if I were to go back.
This is a great place
Of all the motels I've stayed in over the past three years, this has been my favorite. The room was clean and comfortable and very "homey". We were given an extremely nice hideabed for the kid. The lobby is a wonderful place to hang out and use the wireless internet. There are laundry facilities, and they work and are not overpriced. I would stay here again and again.
My only complaint: the fridge was a little loud at night, so I unplugged it - problem solved.
Wonderful Stay at La Quinta
Great stay for a great price. Provides a great (FREE) continental breakfast (fresh belgium waffles). Rooms were clean, good amount of space, and the best things was they allow pets (my dog Nimbus had a great time). Great location (1 1/2 hour from Grand Canyon and 25 mins from Sedona) with good restaurants nearby. The front desk staff were very friendly and efficient. They help provide excellent references for restaurants and printed out directions as well. Highly recommend pet owners to use La Quninta, Flagstaff.
Bad night's sleep
My husband and I stayed at La Quinta Flagstaff for one night (April 8, 2005). We liked the large room, and it was nicely decorated. We were impressed by the breakfast, which included make-your-own waffles and hard-boiled eggs. On the negative side, the bathroom was showing signs of wear. Also, the toilet was a very noisy flusher--enough to wake up the other person at night. The bed was not just firm, but hard. This made for a bad night's sleep, so I would not stay there again.
Great place to stay in Flagstaff
For a quick stay in Flagstaff this is a very nice hotel with a great free breakfast. No trains or interstate noise!
This hotel is nice and clean, the staff is very helpful and there is free continental breakfast. I would recommend this hotel for people staying in Flagstaff before visiting the Grand Canyon. Usually I am a very demanding guest, but really I have nothing bad to say about this hotel, of course bearing in mind its standard.
Nice, good value, we always stay here.
When we go to Flagstaff we always stay here, it is a really good value and it is very clean and comfortble. The rooms are nice with a touch of class. The breakfast is very good with a nice selection which is consistent every time. I recommend it.
I absolutely loved the La Quinta in Flagstaff. It was still being remodeled when we were there a year and a half ago. The rooms are square-shaped and seem much larger than normal rooms at hotels. You walk in and there is a"waiting area" with a mirror and a shelf. The bathroom was large. And, the window views were great. You could have a pool view or a mountain view. The pool area is very nice. The continental breakfast was in the large lobby area. It is very classy and cozy and I recommend it to anybody that wants to stay somewhere in Flagstaff.
