This is part two in our Williams experience. We had to shift to another place to stay and we chose here. Even though we could not stay in one of the cabooses (yes, they have two plus a pullman car that you can stay in) we were able to catch a room in refurbished Route 66 Motor Lodge. (Note: A Motor Lodge is where you can drive right up to the room, sometimes they have carports, this did not) The Canyon Motel & RV park was constructed in the 1950's during the heyday. It has been restored and it is wonderful.
The buildings are made of rock construction. The office/gift store is decorated with railroad and other memorabilia, mostly pertaining to Williams. While you are in the office purchase one of the daily fresh made blueberry muffins. They are some of the best I have had anywhere.
Our room had two queens size beds, both very comfortable, and there was room to spare. The bathroom was much larger than I would have expected out of the era.
the best was the owner. When I explained the situation she was able to work us in for our remaining night in Williams. This is difficult this time of the year due to the Polar Express event (and the parade, and the tree lighting ceremony) and there are usually a lot of folks in town.
Comfortable beds, nice clean rooms, great decor (ok, I love trains, what can I say), I would highly recommend the Canyon Motel to anyone.
