Why We’re Here

How It All Began

Our motor hotel was originally built in 1962, an era defined by its carefree spirit. Think The Jetsons meets Easy Rider. In fact, when that 1969 independent road classic was filming in and around Flagstaff, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and the rest of the crew stayed in and worked out of the Americana.

Though thoroughly reimagined, our 89-room retreat still channels the ease and optimism of that golden age of road travel with a playful dash of retro-futurism and an open embrace of our astounding natural wonders added for good measure.

Fun Design

With a custom redesign led by Andrew Alford, our hotel’s playful aesthetic pays homage to Flagstaff’s deep ties to astronomy, extraordinary natural surroundings, and our location right on iconic Route 66. A nostalgic vision of a future that once felt possible is brought to life through bold colors and vibrant geometric graphics that are equal parts vintage and modern. From the neon sign to the disco balls in the guest rooms and the shifting lobby color palette that echoes a vibrant Arizona sunset, this is a hotel designed with good times in mind.

Welcome Wags

Come with your fur babies and four-legged best friends. The hotel’s amenity fee covers their stay and use of the Barkyard, where hotel reviews are communicated in zoomies. It’s the perfect place to meet new friends, find the perfect place “to go,” and freshen up at the dog wash station.

It’s important we take care of this spaceship, Earth. Being in Flagstaff — the world’s first International Dark Sky City — we made sure our property’s lighting, paint, and signage reflect and emit as little light as possible, so we can all keep enjoying unspoiled starry nights. Down on the ground, we’ve planted drought-tolerant landscaping, swapped glass and plastic for aluminum cans, offer guests reusable water bottles upon check-in, use bio-friendly food packaging and flatware, and have two EV charging stations to get you fueled up and back on the road.

Lowell Observatory

Go from road-tripping to exploring space with tickets to the Lowell Observatory available here as part of our exclusive room package and at the front desk. It’s a fascinating place any day of the week, but the “meet an astronomer” event on Saturday evenings is a highlight that’s included with the ticket price. We can also help arrange for their astronomers to hold private star-gazing events at our hotel for groups with a room block.
