Best bang for the buck!

Can not beat the value for a good nights sleep but the breakfast needs upgraded. See full review

Not a Good Place to Stay

We were not very satisfied with this hotel. There was no TV reception except for lots of snow on the screen. There was mold under the top ledger of the bath tub. There was also lots of noise, apparently, very little insulation between rooms. We would not reccomend this hotel to anyone in the future. The best we could say about the hotel was that it was just a block down from the Grand Canyon Railroad.

Not so great

I called two weeks ahead to make sure that the two rooms were adjoined. They assured me they would be. When we arrived with children, we were told that I never called to reserve the two adjoining rooms. The clerk basically callled me a liar, in different words of course. So, the trip started off badly. Very inconvenient for the family. The view from the window was a ghetto. Glad I did not have to spend too much time at the hotel.

Below Average

The staff was helpful, however; the room and bathroom were small and not very comfortable. The water in the pool and jacuzzi was a bit cloudy. Both my husband and daughter developed a rash the following day after swimming in the water.

mediocre stay

There was no A/C in the lobby/breakfast area. It was quite stuffy when eating breakfast. The breakfast area could be larger as there was always a wait to eat. The breakfast selection could include some fresh fruit, bagels, etc. It would make for a better experience at the motel. The swimming pool water look green and cloudy as if it had not been maintained.

Could be better

For the money, it wasn't a bad hotel. Could have been a little cleaner and the free breakfast was not much at all. A little noisy but not too bad. Location was good, within walking distance of downtown Williams and right next door to a nice laundry mat if you need to do laundry.
