Best known for its alpine scenery, exceptional skiing and being within easy day-tripping distance of the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff is a magnet for outdoorsy types.
The bulk of Flagstaff’s hotels are two-star, with a huge range of comfortable and affordable two-star hotels in historic downtown Flagstaff as well as in the forested fringes of the city.
For more two-star hotels, head to neighbouring Williams, a small city with bags of Old West charm and a mix of budget motels and big-name hotel chains. Or you could even check in to a two-star hotel at the Grand Canyon or in the two-star lodges in Grand Canyon Village, giving you bragging rights of sleeping on the south rim.
Wherever your two-star hotel in Flagstaff, you can make use of the city’s award-winning Mountain Line bus service. Its eight routes cover most of town, stopping off at all the biggest attractions and making it easy to get around on the cheap. There is also a 50-mile network of walking and cycling paths for moving around the city free of charge. Walking tours of the historic old town are a great way to get to know the city and you can pick up free guides and maps from the visitors’ centre.
If you want to go even further afield, hire a car and explore the scenery at your own pace. Or you could take to Flagstaff’s hundreds of miles of walking, hiking and cycling trails and enjoy the mountain scenery and the fresh alpine air that goes with it.
Activities worth splurging on in Flagstaff include skiing or snowboarding on its world-class facilities, visiting a handful of the museums in the old town and day-tripping to the Grand Canyon. The canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, is as impressive in the flesh as it is in guidebooks and a must-visit on travels to this part of the world. You can hire a car and drive to the canyon, catch a train from Williams or hop on a bus from near your two-star hotel in Flagstaff.
