Buffalo Pointe Lodge
Ranked #10 of 12 Williams B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 October 2006

We stayed at the Buffalo Pointe based on travelor's reviews from TripAdvisor, and I have to admit it's the first time I felt that TripAdvisor let me down -- although admittedly I did "ignore" some of the negative reviews being the generally positive person that I am! I've stayed in a lot of different B&Bs, but this one just really doesn't measure up! My overall feeling is that the owners/managers just really don't care enough to pay attention to all the little details that distinguish a B&B from the local Motel 6! For instance:
1. We had to go downstairs to ask for a roll of toilet paper, as our roll was 3/4 empty when we moved into our room, and no extra rolls to be found in the room or bathroom.
2. We had to keep taking the lid off the toilet and "fixing" it ourselves, as it had a problem with either not flushing or constantly running, which was very annoying.
3. Towel bar in the bathroom had parts missing/broken -- how hard is this to fix?
4. Little details such as no where in either room (we had two) to hang shirts on hangers (we ended up having to hang shirts on a wall sconce.
5. This is strictly a personal preference -- but we feel that no matter how nice the animal is, DOGS DO NOT BELONG IN A BED AND BREAKFAST ESTABLISHMENT!
6. The rooms are just slightly above "shabby" category, i.e. stains on the carpets, curtains made out of sheets, etc.

I stayed in this lodge while visiting South Rim of Grand Canyon. Although more expensive suites in this lodge may be OK, the Sportsman and Wildlife rooms are terrible. Wildlife room has the toilet separated from bed only by a curtain, so you can feel the odour while you sleep (It's more like a Jail room). The space in this room is too less and is not enough for even a single person. Sportsman room is little spacious but only half the size of a standard hotel room. The themes in lodge rooms should be appreciated and the breakfast provided is wonderful, so not a bad place to spend one night but not more than that. Lodge staff is not coordinating in terms of reservations and cancellations.

Stayed here 2 nights in January. Thick snow all around and very cold. Room comfortable but very cold and draughty and lacked any sort of coffee or tea making facilities. Not quite what we expected but owners were very friendly and it was OK for a couple of nights.

We serve coffee and tea every morning. Coffee/tea machine available for every room on request.
Every room has an independent heater, some have two. We are not sure the Glouchester England visitors are refering to the right B&B.

Fabulous accomodations. My family and myself had a great 3 day stay at the Lodge. Estefana and Greg were great hosts. They make a 'mean' breakfast. The "little town" atmosphere mixed with the Route 66 fame.

Greg and Estefana make you feel like family. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is fantastic and the host and hostess are superb! We stayed in the Harley Davidson Room which my wife and I really enjoyed. They even held some of our luggage for us while we stayed overnight at the Grand Canyon. Like I said . . . you are treated like family at the Mountain Country Lodge. This is definitely the place to stay in Williams, AZ.

This is a great place to stay when you visit the grand canyon and you don't want to stay in the park. The rooms are great, the breakfest is a real breakfest and not just coffee and donuts but the best of all are the lovely couple who run the place and let you feel like your at home.

We went to Williams for 3 days as a side trip after spending 4 days in Vegas. Our first time at a B&B and we would definitely go back again. The rooms have themes (we stayed in the Deer Room). A little smaller than we expected but adequate with a separate entrance. Greg and Stef were great hosts and the full breakfast included in the price cannot be beat - waffles, pancakes, eggs plus they brought out plates of cut fresh fruit. Day 1 we went on the Grand Canyon Railroad which I highly recommend. Day 2 we went to the Canyon on our own and took the Desert View Drive and came back through Flagstaff where we stopped at Wupatki Sunset Crater Volcano (a totally different scene than the canyon). We went to Black Bart's for dinner and the show. You have to visit the little shops in Williams with all the Historic Route 66 memorabilia. Had to stop at the old fashioned ice cream shop, Twisters to cap off the day. Had a great visit and would return again.
