Location, Location, Location! 


Unique accommodations in the Heart

of Historic Downtown Flagstaff.

"Du Beau's Motel Inn" opened its doors in 1929 as one of the first Motels in America! 


The project began in 1927, when a Canadian entrepreneur Albert E Du Beau relocated to

Flagstaff to materialize his vision of a posh "Motor Hotel". He purchased a prominent site

on the original Route 66 corridor and chose a "U" shaped layout for his 3 building complex.

His clever plan included guest rooms opening onto a courtyard car park and enclosed

steam heated garages (which were destroyed by a fire decades ago), 

as defining features of his modern Motel concept. 

Mr Du Beau specifically designed his Inn to cater to a burgeoning breed of travelers; 

"auto tourists" venturing out on the open road to explore America in their fancy new motorized vehicles. Not only did he offer warmed garages for his guests' prized Model T's, he also

enticed customers with luxuries intended for "the better class of motorist" including carpeting,

double beds and tiled indoor bathrooms... for an all inclusive price of $2.50 per night! 

Today, the Motel Du Beau Travelers Inn continues to host a myriad of happy travelers. Its prime location, colorful history and distinctive character make it a popular respite for adventurous

Nomads from around the globe. The Du Beau is the perfect choice for folks who are seeking

quaint  accommodations, welcoming guest services, old world ambiance and best of all...

the convenience of parking your vehicle and exploring the charming downtown district on foot.

An abundance of eateries, brew pubs, art galleries, and locally owned shops 

surround this memorable "Travelers Inn". 

If you're in the mood for a one of a kind, retro lodging experience, the "Mo Du Beau"  is it!


We look forward to meeting you,


Lisa and John McCulloch
