“Great location for visiting the Grand Canyon”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We spent 2 nights here whilst visiting the Grand Canyon, and it was a very clean, comfortable and pleasant stay.
Just down the road from Williams' main street, the hotel hosts good parking facilities, spacious rooms and a very nice pool and jacuzzi area.
Our room was really 2 rooms, with 1 double bed, large TV, desk/chair and a kitchen area in one, and 2 double beds, large TV and bathroom in the other.
The air con worked well, as did the free wifi. In the lobby there is free juice and coffee and also a popcorn machine you can help yourself to!

The hotel is in walking distance of the main street which is fantastic! It's full of lovely authentic shops selling lots of Route 66 stuff, great restaurants, bars and interesting bits and pieces to look at.
It's about an hours drive from the South rim of the Grand Canyon which is pretty convenient. WIlliams is a lovely town, we were very nicely surprised with everything there! Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Advice: The hotel is only 2 floors and therefore DOESN'T have a lift. Remember this if you have...

We stayed in this hotel when visiting Grand Canyon, which is about an hour drive from the hotel's location. We had a king size room, which was spacious, although the bathroom was a bit small. Overall the hotel was clean. The breakfast was okay. We had to pay $9.95 extra per person and, being a vegetarian, I could not each much, apart from scrambled eggs and fried potatoes. Also, a lot of tables were not cleaned. My recommendation would be to eat breakfast outside of the hotel. Also, the cable TV was broken for the whole 3 days were were there. Bonus points were free popcorn and teas and coffees in the reception area.

We stayed here so we could head to the Grand Canyon, this is located just an hour south and a really manageable drive on easy to navigate roads. On a side note the Grand Canyon is simply breath taking, hard to describe but you must go see it for yourself... oh and this is where I proposed! She said yes so that was a definite bonus :)

Back to the hotel, everything was nice enough, clean and tidy with a nice lobby area. We did pop to the adjoining steak house which for us was disappointing but for a cheap base to the south rim ideal.

This small Holiday Inn has a swimming pool, lovely shop, laundry room, internet and offers nice rooms and breakfast. It's on the edge of Williams, Arizona, just one hour south of the Grand Canyon. We found Williams to be a great little town, full of character from its am-dram gunfight enactment to its charming restaurants.

Didn't have great expectations from this Holiday Inn chain. However it was good. Great indoor pool complex with very large spa tub. Room was a little tired but fully functional and clean. Nice extras in the lobby. Free popcorn for the kids and coffee for the adults. Free USA Today newspaper in the morning. Bar staff miserable. We didn't eat there so can't comment on the food. Williams is a short walk away. Hotel is next to Freeway so that is worth noting although our room faced away form the road so no noise.

Room Tip: Take note of the Freeway when requesting your room

Good location, right off the freeway, close to the road to Grand Canyon Village. Olivia at the front desk was super professional and helpful. She saved the day by scoring a roll-a-way bed for us when there were no two bed rooms available. New LG LCD TV with proper HD cable signals. The indoor pool/hot tub area was decent but had some cracked tiles. No elevator promoted, but it was not a problem for this two story property. Very family friendly property overall.

Although there was not a free breakfast, there was a promotion for kids eat free with a paying adult. In room microwave and fridge made this a strong value for this area.

Used Hotwire to book this hotel while on the road. Older hotel. No elevator. Staff was friendly. Rooms are getting dated. Overall an OK place to stop for the night. Not a lot of selection in the Williams area. Williams was a great place to walk around in though. Great show put on by the locals every night on the main street.
