Little America Hotel Flagstaff
Travel Blogs from Flagstaff
Jamie's grandparents Dan and Paulette very kindly took us to Flagstaff via the area known as the snow ball area. The area was so different from the arid desert region for sure, with green trees and a variety of flora, but the altitude made breathing very difficult for me.
From there we went to Flagstaff where we booked into a very nice hotel.< …
First morning that no alarms had to be set & I was still awake at 8am. Lay in bed until about 11am reading. Was nice not to hurry & to just take our time. Got up then showered, then sorted dirty clothes to take to the laundry room.
To wash & dry clothes took about 1hr 15mins so in the meantime we spent some time & money in the …
It was another early start. Cases ready by 7.15, on bus at 8am. We didn't bother with breakfast we just had snacks in our room. Essentially it was just a long day on the coach but going through some wonderful scenery on route. We went through Monument Valley where scenes from many films (Forrest Gump, Thelma & Louise, The Lone Ranger) plus …

d). Sedona's main attraction is its stunning array of red sandstone formations, the
Red Rocks of Sedona. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when
illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The Red Rocks form a breathtaking backdrop
for everything from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain

It's just after 3:30. Kids are in the pool at our hotel in Flagstaff, air is cool and fresh after the heat of the desert. The day started off in Albuquerque. We had our first good cup of coffee in what seems like weeks instead of days at a local Starbucks. The drive west of Albuquerque through the red rocks and another lava flow was stunning. Such a unique landscape!! Our destination was the Petrified Forest and the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Little America Hotel Flagstaff
We stayed here in October 2003. As expected, large rooms with 1970's vintage/dated furniture (the nostaglia experience) in a quiet, wooded setting. The outdoor pool with hot tub was very nice. Ask for a room that faces the pool with all the mature evergreen trees and walking trail. They light gas torches along the walking trail at night which is a nice ambience. The restaurant has a good breakfast which is reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful. Room rates above average for the dated decor but clean, quiet and easy access from the highway. Downtown Flagstaff just 5 minute drive away. Would stay again.
We just stayed there and loved it. Room was HUGE and spotless, shower was great, superthick towel, great service, etc, etc, etc. Yeah, the furniture hasn't changed much in about 40 years, but it's clean and comfortable. What a welcome relief from the usual "corporate" hotels.
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for just one night in September 2003 and I was sorry our stay was so short. This is a wonderful hotel.
Don't be decieved by how it looks from the highway (like a roadside motel). You drive down a driveway and come to the hotel and will quickly see that it is a lovely hotel. It has an old-fashioned elegance about it. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms, and bathrooms, are huge and decorated with really pretty, and interesting, antique furniture. This is no cookie cutter style hotel! In the courtyard out back there is a large heated pool, with poolside waiter service, and a hot tub. They also have a walking trail through the woods, a volleyball court, and horseshoes. The food at both hotel reatuarants was excellent. Don't miss this place if you are going to be in Flagstaff!
We were on a tour of california for our honeymoon and stayed at the LA for 2 nights and it was our favorite hotel of the tour, the staff were helpfull, and the rooms large, went for a swim in the heated pool surrounded by rabbits and other wildlife. The choice of food is great from a cafe style with steaks etc to a more expenive upmarket restaurant. Yes the decor is a little dated, but thats all part of the charm of this hotel. We hope to come back to LA for our Anniversery one day.
In July, 2003 we went on a 3 week trip across country and the Little America was one of the best hotel/motel experiences that we had. It was very clean & roomy.....a great value!
Love it, it's the best.
My family and I have stayed here during the months of January or February for the past five years. It is by far one of the most beautiful spots in AZ. It's close to Old Town Flag & great restaurants, including the one across the street. Hotel staff always go out of their way to get our rooms close in proximity. Great Fireplace. Also close to Sedona. If I had a complaint it would be the coffee, terrible, and I'm a coffee drinker. But the cafe and restaurant in the hotel are excellent. Christmas lights are unbelievable. Thank you. We'll be back...
Loved it here
stayed here in late june and had the best time. came in on amtrak & they sent the bellman for me. room was a junior suite with a grove of pines outside my window. had no problem seeing the tv from the bed or the living room--it swiveled! great big bathroom with a hugh oval bathtub...loved it. used the hiking trail, pool, gift shop & cafe, all great. there is a bus that goes by the hotel into downtown and out to the mall everyday except sunday & holidays. when i asked for a cab on sunday to go downtown, they offered the services of the bellman!! even took me back to amtrak on sunday morning at 4:45am--who could complain
Didn't feel this hotel lived up to the recommendations we had received from friends/others. Don't get me wrong. It's not a bad hotel. Everything was clean and the rooms were slightly larger than average...... As mentioned by others, you do get the feeling that you could actually be on a Brady vacation with the decor being very 70's or late 60's. Away from town so you have to drive there, which proabably isn't an issue for most. And we haven't stayed at any other places in Flagstaff, so this might be the best of the bunch; relatively speaking.
What a pleasant surprise !
Their writeup in AAA seemed too good to be true so, unfortunately, we booked our first night elsewhere and drove over to check the place out in the morning. The courteous and well-dressed man at the desk said he would find us a perfect room at a great price. Believe it or not - he did just that. We kept waiting to find out what the down side was going to be and there wasn't one. Dated decor? I suppose you could say that but it was beautiful, comfortable and very clean. I hope they never change their style as it made us feel special. We have stayed in the top hotels worldwide and this one was perfect without being stuffy and pretentious. It was 39 degrees in the morning and I swam in their lovely, heated pool all by myself -- the hot tub, too. There is a great gift shop and restaurants on the premises, nearby access to the highway and a casual/entertaining steak house across the street. We hope to return to celebrate our anniversary there again this October.
It's your father's Little America
The place just doesn't change much. It still has the large rooms with the funky decor. There's a rumor that they have multi-room suites, or at least one, but I've not found it. However, you can get adjoining rooms. The TV is still large, on the floor and nearly impossible to see lying in bed. But, LA Flag does have a hiking trail and outside play equipment for kids. This is pretty much interstate highway travel lodgings before the all-suite motels and resort amenities took over the marketplace.
