This is a great hotel choice primarily for one reason: the rooms. They are very large (claimed 481 sq ft), have large windows, and a "forest view" room (ponderosas) can be requested (extra). If your primary objective is to get a really nice room, this could be it (well, at least mine certainly was). The bathrooms are very ample and the shower volume is enormous. There are lots of little things that are not quite right about the hotel, but it all depends on what you are shopping for. Another plus: the pool -- large, 9-ft depth, pool guy there regularly. There is a two-mile walking trail in the Ponderosa forest. It is not a sylvan paradise, but it is handy and pleasant.

I woudn't go there to dine, especially not for lunch (and why no beer or wine till 3pm?), and I wouldn't depend on enjoying tv -- the picture on mine was very poor. Although there was an HDTV in the room, the hotel has apparently not subscribed to even one HD channel, so you watch standard definition channels stretched out and distorted. As I say, lots of little defects, but overall it was a pleasant four days, and I will probably return and would recommend it to friends, explaining certain things.

By the way, a little tip: Little America is a chain, and the name of the hotel in Flagstaff is "Little America Hotel". If you google "Little America Hotel and Towers", you will probably come up with the hotel in, say, Salt Lake City. If you don't want to book through Expedia, God forbid, google "Little America Hotel Flagstaff".

I read the reviews and decided to stay here after our Grand Canyon trip on the way to Sedona. Yes, it is SOMEWHAT upgraded. Do not be deceived. They upgraded some items, but some are utterly stuck in a time warp...1970's lamps, wicker headboards, olive green bench seat and dated furniture, our wicker headboard had a softball sized hole in it.. It is VERY clean with new carpets& linens only. If they were going to capitalize on the retro look, it didn't cut it! The rooms are VERY large, though and again very clean. The bathroom is large and probably the most updated (still, it had the fake crystal old-fashioned knobs). We got in late and literally just slept, so it was fine. If you enjoy staying in nice hotels, as we do, I wouldn't stay here longer than a brief overnight as we did. It was adequate.

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times and it is always a pleasant stay. This time we selected the upgraded room with the extra queen sofa sleeper and forest view. The view was somewhat obstructed, but the room was huge, comfortable, and clean. Our two boys loved watching the flat screen HDTV during our down time. We always enjoy walking through the grounds and its 2 mile trail through the cool pines. In the morning it was fun to watch the squirrels and cottontails scampering around the facility. It is certainly not the cheapest place to stay, but you can always expect a pleasant and relaxing experience here.

This is an absolutely amazing place! My family and I stayed here for two nights and we constantly marveled that such a place still exists. In the old days, Little America Hotels provided an oasis for travelers that had everything under one roof (as it were). Hotel rooms, restaurants, shops, gas, auto repair, etc. Although times have changed, Little America has not.

From the moment we checked in we all felt as if we had been transported back to 1963. The decor throughout is the heavy wood, smoked glass, dark colors, etc. that you usually only see in old pictures of your parents' in the mid-1960s. The sprawling wooded grounds and beautiful and have a hiking trail and playground as well as horseshoes! The pool is very large by modern hotel standards, a double circle pool with a real deep end. Surrounding the pool are actual tiki lights which are lit most nights! We ate in the upscale restaurant both evenings and found the food and service to be excellent -- and so retro. In fact, ALL of the staff from the front desk to the concierge to the room service to the housekeeping were friendly, courteous, and efficient.

What about the room? First, it was large. We ad two queen beds, which were made up in the golds and reds one would expect of the period. It had a real sit down vanity. The pink-tiled bathroom was also large and wonderfully retro. The whole room from the yellow bureau of drawers to the white iron chandelier was right out of the 60s. But -- and this is crucial -- none of it was proken down, worn, or seedy. It all looked new. Clearly, Little America is working hard to maintain the retro feel. We loved it.

All of this harkening back is softened by a few things that are modernized. High speek internet is avaialbe in the rooms (although you must bring your own ethernet cable). The televisions are nice plasma, wall mounted screens that look completely out of place, but are nice nonetheless.

The only downside to the place was the shower. The plumbing has NOT been modernized. Taking a shower is a real adventure. First you turn it on (it doesn't really matter how you set the valves) then you wait for it to get warm. Then you jump into the water and wash as quickly as you can before it becomes scholding hot. Then you jump out and wait for the next cycle, which will be heading down to ice cold. I suggest just taking baths. (Didn't they do that more in the 60s?)

Despite the shower problem, we will never pass up a chance to stay at a Little America. It is just too much fun.

We stayed for one night at this hotel, and were pleasantly surprised. It's a rambling place located behind a gas station. But the standard motel exterior belies the quality of the rooms and overall amenities of the property (on site concierge, etc.). Our king suite was very large with some luxury touches like a big flat screen TV and nice furniture in the sitting area. For the price we paid, it was a great value. Overall, a very positive experience.

Staff are friendly and positive. The large gift shop is a little kitschy, and the restaurant is fine for breakfast, but there are better choices for dinner in downtown Flagstaff.
