Very cheap stay in Williams, perfect for a visit to the Grand Canyon.

The hotel: it's a typical, cheap hotel. The room was OK although the curtains were very short so the room was very light at night. The breakfast was very meagre, we gave it a miss. The room smelled a bit smokey despite being a non-smoking room. I wouldn't want to spend 2 nights there, but for £50 it is a perfectly fine stopover on the way to the Grand Canyon.

Williams itself was a nice surprise. We had been in the US for 2 weeks at this point and could not believe how early everything closes - restaurants in particular. Even cities like San Francisco are a bit of a shock for me as a European, who is used to being able to eat good food at gone 9pm. Anyway, Williams was surprisingly lively and we managed to get good food quite late in the evening, which was a welcome treat.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that does not face the main road, as the curtains on the rooms facing the road don...

We stayed here for 1 night en route to the canyon.
This is in an excellent location - only takes 10 mins to walk to the town and the historic route 66.
The place itself is great value. The rooms are cheap but well equipped. Good internet. Clean beds, good showers, overall clean and tidy. Coffee is available in the room.
The pool area (indoor) is tired looking but perfectly fine and functional.
The breakfast wasn't great - it was all served in polystyrene plates but it was ok. They had tea, coffee, juice, muffins, waffles, toast and cereal.
Overall we had a comfortable stay. I had a good sleep as there was not excessive noise. I would stay here again.

Nice, clean, friendly service for a good price. There are restaurants within walking distance. the Grand Canyon Railway depot is next door and the zipline is across the street. The only downside was that it was difficult to set a comfortable night time temperature, possibly because the mattresses have a plastic cover that I found a bit uncomfortable - even with the doubled sheets on the bed.
