Prescott Valley is located approximately 12 miles east of the town of Prescott and is the 7th fastest growing area in all of Arizona. Prescott Valley, once known as Lonesome Valley, is highly developed with several the big brand stores that are often found in major metropolitan areas, such as Costco, Barnes and Noble, Whole Foods and Trader Joes just to name a few. Prescott carries the charm of the Old West, but Prescott Valley is often more convenient for travelers who require these resources. Prescott Valley is close to many of the outdoor activities as well. In general, all the outside activities are within reasonable driving distance from both Prescott and Prescott Valley. So choosing where to book your hotel really just depends on what activities, attractions or resources are most important to be near.
