Days Inn Flagstaff-West Route 66
Travel Blogs from Flagstaff
We woke up early in anticipation as we were going to see some amazing places of interest. We drove about 25 miles to the Meteor Crater and paid $16 per person to enter the site. On arrival we could see the rim of the crater and looked impressive. We walked around the museum and took in a few facts about the crater before being greeted by Eduardo ( …
Today we left Vegas behind and continued our epic journey across America! Today would be a mind blowing experience of seeing the most random attractions and sights, with plastic dolls on the sidewalk and old motels that still hold their historical value.
We began our trip and our first place of interest was the Hackberry Stores, it's …
So today we are planning to drive to Flagstaff as tomorrow we have to get to the Grand Canyon. We did decide on making one small detour though, since we have the time: the Petrified Forest National Park.
As usual, I'll save you all the boring driving story, it's always the same anyway. It is weird though that after so much …
This morning we said good-bye to Vegas with its $20 breakfasts and $40 dinners of two pizza slices and drinks! We plugged Henderson into the navigator and then got lost on our way to Lake Mead and the Hoover dam. Of course we were not really lost - just took a more scenic route but Richard was fussing about making the 9:30 tour given how far we …
After a three hour drive from Scottsdale, we make it to Flagstaff. Driving through desert, more desert, the occasional cactus then mountains and huge pine trees. Climbing higher and higher into the mountains, the air becomes thin and cooler. Finally, signs of civilization emerge and we arrive in the mountain town of Flagstaff. Elevation around 7, …

Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Flagstaff-West Route 66
Stayed for one night (11/26) upon returning from Grand Canyon and was pleasantly surprised. Normally do not stay at Days ..but we were traveling with our dog and it was one of the few properties in Flag that accepted pets. Train noise was not all that bad, and it certainly did not keep us up at night. It could be horrendous closer to the tracks. The trains are pretty much heard all over the town...some places worse than others. There are different buildings at this property, with the one we were in being reserved as pet rooms. Very clean with older furnishings. Tub and shower in with toilet, and sink/mirror out in the main room. Roomy area to walk pets complete with "scoopers" right there at the ready. Continental breakfast served in the main lobby area which would be a walk across the lot from the pet building. Depending on which way your rooms faces , you could score a wonderful view of the mountains. My only reason for not giving it a 5 out of 5, was that the walls are paper thin in this particular building and your neighbor's TV, barking dog, etc, could easily be heard. Not a big deal for us but if you';re a really light sleeper, could be an issue if you have a noisy neighbor. A terrific place to stay.....especially if you're travelling with your best furry friends!
Stayed 1st November 2004. Top quality hotel at cheap rates. Helpful staff and no train noises at all.
I had stayed at this property with my mother in September of 2000 (and loved it) and we decided to return when we visted Flagstaff this September.
I was extremley impressed, from the moment I walked in the office. The office was large & beautiful, the staff exellent.
The windows of the rooms large, they looked out to the pool & a large grassy area.
Breakfast was good, 3 types of juice, tea coffee, waffles, toast , english muffins, donuts & fruit.
What more could you ask for. The rate was only $62.00, for 3 of us.
Also they have a beautiful game room.
I like to travel a lot, so I stay at many places. I have paid $130.00 for 1/2 the accomodations
I really would recommend this place.
I really liked this hotel because it was large , everything is so tiny & cramped these days, not this days Inn.
A great stay
My wife and two kids and I stayed in one of the two room suites for 6 days in August 2004. It was a great room for the price and the staff was friendly and helpful.
If I wanted to be picky I could lower their score for worn drapes and a few minor things, but I don't care about any of that. I like a good matress, which we had, good price, which we got, and competent staff, which they were.
One note, there is a train crossing which means you hear the train across the hyway 24/7. It didn't bother us but if you are a light sleeper, find an area of Flagstaff away from the trains.
A Great Place to Stay
This was a great place to stay for a very reasonable rate. A short spin from downtown, yet none of the loud rumbling of trains/horns that you get in all the downtown hotels. (Beware the Hotel Monte Vista in this regard-also stayed there in the past).
Cont. breakfast was minimal but adequate, staff was very nice, accomodated our late check out request. Rooms were good size, very clean and not cramped. All in all, a great place to stay and a wonderful town to visit. I will be back.
Great Hotel for the Price!
My husband and I stayed at the Flagstaff Days Inn last weekend to get away from the 110 degree heat. The check-in staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our room (two queen beds) were very spacious and surprisingly clean! They need to move the shower head up so you don't have to crouch to get your head wet! The beds were very comfortable and the only drawback were the train horns - which are pretty hard to get away from in Flagstaff. The only negative to this hotel is their breakfast which consisted of cereal, waffles, which you make yourself, toast and a bowl of apples and oranges - we decided to go back home through Sedona and stopped for breakfast at the Junipine Resort which was not only a beautiful location but a very good restaurant.
Gem of a Motel
Wow, this is a great motel and very inexpensive. It is super close to the Raddison and after staying here I wonder why people pay extra to stay at the Raddison. I guess looks are deceiving; it seems like it was recently updated inside. In fact we went through Flagstaff to get somewhere else and on the way back I knew we had to stay at the days inn again. The staff is nice; the free breakfast is great (fresh waffles, cereal, juices, coffee, toast, fruit, etc). Overall a great bang for your buck!!!!
The Best Days Inn I have stayed at
I have stayed at quite a few Days Inns and this one is the best! The rooms are very spacious and clean, with floor to ceiling glass windows.
Decent furniture, new carpet, nice bathroom and big dressing area. Free cable TV including HBO. Deluxe breakfast with do-it-yourself fresh Belgian Wafer in the big, nice lobby. The staff is very friendly, helpful and responsive. We booked our room through Days Inn's web site for only $35 a night (early Junuary). What a deal!
A good Day's Inn
One of my favorite Day's Inns. Nothing really special about the place, no extra "character", but it's very comfortable, well laid out, easy access to rooms, decent outdoor pool in a courtyard (not sitting next to the road!), spacious lobby with not-bad free coffee, good staff. The type of place that gave me a good impression of the Days Inn chain (until I stayed at some wretched ones). Located on the two-lane spur that heads out to westbound 40 past the Flagstaff Botanic Garden and built up-slope from the roadway, decent views.
The downside is they've jacked prices up over the last couple of years, making it rather expensive as a place to choose at the last minute. Try and find a good rate and it's worth the stay.
