This was not a pleasant experience. Grotty hotel, horrible rooms, even worse bathrooms, awful night's sleep. Cheap, yes, but not worth the saving. Never again.
Breakfast area is big enough for about 6 people to eat, in a grotty lobby area.
And (common to too many hotels we stayed in): horrible polystyrene (styrofoam) plates, cups and plastic cutlery. Not only unpleasant to use, but what about the tons of rubbish they generate? Very American, unfortunately...
The hotel had a problem with the water supply, and we were told not to drink it. When asked if we could use the filtered water in the drinks machine, we were told we could buy water in the nearby gas station!
Williams is a cool town, though. This hotel is not. Avoid. Really, avoid.
