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.

The taxi picks me up at 4am on Saturday morning to take me to JFK. I get to the airport in just 40 mins and walk straight up to the check in desk. I pay $25 to check in a bag that I later realise is smaller than most people's hangluggage.
It's a 6 hour flight to Pheonix but very basic. No movies or food on this one. I fall asleep before …
I have wanted to see the Grand Canyon for as long as I can remember and in fact this trip was the reason for our American holiday. And it didn't disappoint. It was fabulous.
I'm keeping this entry fairly short as although the photo's don't do it justice, they still speak louder than any words can.
We left the Little America Hotel …
I had been looking forward to Monument Valley. Jeremy had told me about his trip there a few years ago where he and friends hired a Native American to take them around the fantastic wind and dust eroded stone pillars so beloved of the old John Wayne movies. We sadly were on the coach the whole route with just a couple of "comfort" breaks and a …
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.< …
... my time and money going? What are my skills, passions and interests? Who can I become while I am alive on this planet? How can I do it all differently, to suit my goals and dreams?
I sit and take a moment to brace myself and promise myself that I will continue to express and live with the same confidence, attitude and sense for adventure with which I have gained from this 5 month sabbatical. I am who I am, but I have also changed greatly from this trip. ...
