Son and I stayed two nights to tour the Grand Canyon. Nice, clean rooms (bathrooms slightly dated but functional), about 100 yards from the train station, 150 from the center of town. Not just friendly, but HAPPY employees. Continental breakfast was basic but good (it's free, remember... so don't whine), and it's hard to find any fault with the place. I'm not sure how anyone can complain that a small hotel can't handle 100 bikers at once... it's Howard Johnson Williams, not the Hyatt at LAX. The only other local motels on par are at the train terminal (more expensive) and Holiday Inn (outside of town and not within walking distance of anything). You get what you pay for, and it's definitely worth paying for this. I highly recommend Pankaj Patel and his staff for your next visit. I'm already planning my next trip, and I haven't even finished unpacking yet.
