Arizona Motel 6 upgrades to Phoenix design prototype

DALLAS, Texas – Motel 6 announces the completion of its renovated location in Flagstaff, Ariz., located at 2745 S. Woodlands Village. To celebrate the renovation and to showcase the new modern look and feel, Motel 6 Flagstaff staff and Motel 6 senior management welcomed community members and guests at an on-site ceremony and offered tours of the new guestrooms.  

“We are very pleased to bring the “Phoenix” design to Flagstaff and to add even more price value to our guests’ experience at Motel 6,” said Olivier Poirot, CEO of Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6.

The newly-renovated Flagstaff property features elements of the new “Phoenix” prototype design, which includes a modernized interior, sleek European boutique-style guestroom, wood-effect laminate flooring, 32” flat-screen TVs and granite bathroom countertops.  The modern guestroom design features bright accent colors, ambient lighting, and a pedestal bed that complements the room’s sleek, clean design. Guestrooms are also equipped with a multi-media panel with A/V plug-ins for mp3 players, video game systems and laptop computers; Wi-Fi internet access; and a settee/banquette area for two.

In addition to its modern styling, the “Phoenix” design incorporates a number of environmentally-friendly features. The renovated Flagstaff property utilizes Motel 6’s current energy management practices including the disposal of hazardous waste with a Fluorescent Light Bulb and Battery Recycling Program and reduced water consumption with low-flow aerators for faucets and shower heads and 1.1 gallon low-flow toilets. The wood-effect laminate flooring is made of 80% pre-consumer recycled material.

Motel 6 Flagstaff offers a perfect location for an affordable getaway as guests have easy access to enjoy many of the region’s astounding national and state parks – still at the lowest price of any national chain.

Currently, Motel 6 locations in select markets around the country are being renovated with elements of the new prototype.  For more information on Motel 6, please visit
