Williams HoJo's

Good continental breakfast would have been nicer if they would have had some fresh fruit. No complaints at all. Great place. Everything in town was within walking distance.

Great place to stay in a quaint, busy little town.

Our room was better equiped than expensive hotels we've stayed in. It was quite clean and had lots of plugs for our electronics! Everything worked: frig, microwave, hot shower. Great breakfast. The hotel is just two blocks from train depot and three from Main St. Lots of little shops. No need to use the car.

Good value for money in GrandCanyon trip

Very helpful front desk Mr. PJ. Clean rooms. Nice location near route 66 and I64 to grand canyon. Small breakfast area with limited early morning hours. No elevators so have to drag luggage to 2nd floor thru stairs. On asking had no 1st floor rooms but people coming after us were given 1st floor rooms! Very small but clean swimming pool. Good size jacuzzi. Water was luke warm only. Room toilet plugged up and we were provided with a broken plunger to open it ourself by a female 1st. It was later taken care by Mr. PJ. Still overall it is a nice hotel with reasonable price, cleaniness and easy access to highways. Will recommend this hotel.

Really good

We arrived late, however check-in was really quick and easy. Our room (no smoker) was clean, big and comfortable. In the morning, we had a free breakfast...obviously no the best one, but right.

An hour away from the Grand Canyon

There are many chain and local eating establishments. Local shops are quaint. Local people were very friendly and helpful. Gas and food prices are comparable to California. Room was a bit over-priced, but clean with friendly helpful staff. Nice free breakfast with waffle bar.

Met requirements but plenty Good

Our destination was the Grand Canyon, but the car trip there was a bit long. At least the staff tried to place us very near our other family's room. Then we were told to use the breakfast facility even though the website said to not expect that ... that's good service. I do wish that smoking rooms were not so intermingled with nonsmoking rooms as they are in this and many other hotels.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

at the Grand Canyon, the in-park shuttle service is a good idea for the first-time visitor. Take the blue shuttle route until it connects with the red shuttle route -- the blue route mostly connects shopping areas and the red connects real sight-seeing

Good Stay

We booked at this HoJo for the price, included breakfast, and the pool. It was well worth the price and location! The breakfast area in the lobby was dreadfully hot, stuffy, and small. However, the homemade waffles were pretty darn good. The front desk was more than accommodating with pool towels and additional shower towels. However, the indoor pool area was very stuffy. The room was clean, and the window cooler (a/c) worked wonderfully!

This Howard Johnson was within a short walking distance to the Grand Canyon Railway. And when we returned to the depot it was just another short walk to dinner and back to the HoJo.

Decent motel

Pros: 1) About 60 miles from Grand Canyon - not too close but is not too bad if you don't want to spend a lot and stay at Tusayan or inside GC. 2) Good service - they are quite friendly 3) Free breakfast and free wifi Cons: 1) Bathroom wasn't quite spotless. A bit stained but not too bad. 2) Sometimes I could hear people walking / jumping on the floor above.
