“Good value for money.”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Stayed here with my wife and 2 babies in September as were going to the Grand Canyon. Ideal place to stay for people on a budget as is only 1 hour drive from Canyon. Williams is a beautiful town. Air con didn,t work in room on first night so didn,t sleep much that night but started to work on second day. One of the bed covers had a cigarette burn in it. Bath abit dirty in bathroom. Deadlock on door very useful as stops babies from getting out of room. Breakfast room consists of 4 tables with 2 chairs apiece. Tables uneven causing alot of spilled food. Too small and could be improved. No baby chairs available so caused abit of hassle when trying to have breakfast. Overall hotel very clean and comfortable but abit dated. Would stay again. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly.

Good value. Comfortable. Okay continental breakfast but there was nowhere to sit in the breakfast area because there were only 4 tables and 13 chairs and many people had to eat standing up or take the food back to their rooms.

We got in around sundown and got a room here. The heated pool and hot tub made up for the meager breakfast offered. I would stay here again but only if I had the coupon that we found the next day in a travel magazine that would have saved us $20.

Only one hour drive to the Grand Canyon and steps away from the Grand Canyon Railway.Room was clean and spacious - bed comfortable - The pool and hot tub were perfect temperatures. Only draw back is that we were in the second building and had to walk outside to get to the pool area. Staff were friendly. Good value for your buck. We had breakfast at the Pne country Restaurant which was delicious. Would stay at the hotel again.

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.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 night visiting the Grand Canyon. A 2 queen beds room that we got was big and clean. A good location not far from HW. A staff was friendly. A breakfast area was small but not crowded. A breakfast was average. We would stay at the hotel again.
