Howard Johnson Express Inn - Williams

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was clean and quiet. We only stayed one night but it was convenient for our travel plans.

The interior door leading to the adjoining room would not lock. There was blood stains on the sheets. The bed spread had a large oily stain.

Nice, staff in evening and morning could be nicer.

The location of the hotel stay was prefect for our visit to the Grand Canyon. However, we didn't rest very well because the hotel was hot and stuffy. The lobby, hallway, and room were hot and stuffy. The breakfast room was so stuffy that we opted to skip the free breakfast and drive up the stteeth to grab McDonald's.

This hotel will save you money but you get what you pay for. Rooms are tiny. Bathtub has weird spots on the floor. Carpet looked worn. Pool is absurdly tiny. Good place if you're looking just to crash after all day on Vegas strip. Next time I'll just shell out some extra dollars for another hotel.

The hotel is very clean and comfortable. It exceeded my expectations.

The room was clean and nice. Unfortunately the wi-fi was slow and our TV didn't work. The connection was horrific. It kept on stalling/pausing during every tv show. It said it might be because of weather and to call the front desk if it continued so I did. The woman that answered said she would let her manager know. But I was never contacted again and the TV never got better. Not even the next morning. Also the continental breakfast was a little disappointing. There was no fruit or yogurt. Only carbs (waffles, cereal, white bread and mini muffins). I loved that it was centrally located in town and of course close to our next day trip to the grand canyon.

It was a good location for the Grand Canyon Railway.

Wasn't there very long, hard to comment it was a good stay

This hotel was fine for the money. Not an upscale place, but the rooms were clean. Lobby smells strange, but rooms did not. Staff was friendly and very accommodating with adjoining rooms. :)

You have to cook your own breakfast, they put the pancake mixtures n waffles or pancake cooker, n let your cook your own

Great accommodations. A little expensive at $106. A night. Pool and hot tub were wonderful. Bathtub needed a mat, I used a towel so I didn't slip.

Continental breakfast poor. There was no fruit-I kept going down at different times each day to see if i missed it. The mgr. said they never have fruit. Syrup for waffles sugar free. Apple and orange juice tasted watered down. Internet Wifi must be used by neighboring apartments also as it was like my old dial up. Slow and would stop working. Mgr said to call tech support, but you know that is kinda their responsibility.

The Howard Johnsons in Williams saved our trip. Of course we wanted to stay closer to the Canyon ( who wouldn't), but everything there was either booked up or out of our budget. Plus it was too cold to camp. Ho Jos came through with a clean, recently refurbished room at a good price. There was a pool and jacuzzi, but after a day of her hiking and a couple beers we fell right asleep.

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

It was a good place with nice restaurants near by. Approximately 1 hr drive from south rim. We liked it.

Not a bad place to stay, you can hear your neighbors like they're in the same room with you though. Very small bathroom with signs of mold. Other than that - a decent value

Not very pleasant stay, Mgr was not very co operative on answering the questions. asked for the receipt of the stay, told me that I have to get it from where Booked the hotel, I will never stay there again nor recommend to others

Lobby had a pool and hot tub. Free breakfast in the morning with waffles, oj, cereal, muffins, coffee, etc. Room's were nice and clean and the tv had plenty of channels. Just a short walk away from "downtown" Williams where there are tons of restaurants, bars, and gift shops. Hour drive north to the Grand Canyon south rim, quick and convenient.

Nice clean room. Noisy room AC fan. Breakfast left alot to be desired. Friendly male manager.
