The DuBeau Motel was located on the original alignment of Route 66 through Flagstaff. At this spot the route crossed the railroad tracks and began heading south and west out of Flagstaff. This site was the perfect spot for A.E. DuBeau to build his "Motel Inn" in 1929. DuBeau came to Flagstaff from Los Angeles and chose this spot to create a hotel designed specifically for "the better class of motorist." The property rented rooms from $2.50 to $5.00 per night and had such amenities as in-room baths and toilets, double beds, carpeting, and heated garages for the cold winter nights. The DuBeau continues to serve visitors as an international youth hostel.
