Easy walking to many restaurants and attractions on historic Route 66. This is a bit of a tourist destination just outside Grand Canyon so the prices are higher than the product would get elsewhere. It was a clean room and a good sleep.

Checked in without a reservation, was given a decent walk up rate. Check in was smooth and polite. Secure place to park my bike in front of my room. Room was basic but clean and tidy-shower was one of those "curtain blow all over the place" but functional. Good value for money.

The hotel itself was not bad, nothing really wrong with the room. The location is fine, on the main street and easy to walk to the shops and restaurants. The problem with my stay came after I left. They charged me $23 for 2 additional people being in the room, which there never were. Only myself and my friend were... More

The econolodge was clean but dated. Perfect for a one night outside of the grand canyon. Great pillows and bed. Seems well maintained and staff is very friendly. The hotel had multiple quiet hours signs posted which was great for tired travelers.

I booked two rooms for this Friday, July 24th for one night. They had an advertised online special for $20 per room (which at the time of booking, I suspected was an error, but that is what was advertised so I book the rooms). When I book the website said there were 5 rooms left at this rate. I printed... More

We made the reservation the day before and called as soon as we had service on the Grand Canyon railway to let them know we're on our way. Room windows are left open so it was hot in the room which is why we called an hour ahead so it would be cool in the room. The air then shut... More

I arrived in Williams very late so I didn't have a lot of choices of places to stay. This one was at the end of the road and still had vacancy lit up on the sign. I was pretty beat from a long drive so I decided to just stay here. The price seemed a bit high in my opinion.... More

Stayed here after trying to find cheaper hotel for a one night stay. The room was clean and the staff was very helpful. The breakfast was the same standard as the other chain hotels I have stayed in. Good place if you are looking for a simple room for one night.

After a week on the road we were tiring of mattresses that were too firm, pillows too high and rooms that are only non-smoking when we are there. Although the room was small and furniture dated, the bed was soft and so comfortable. Mattress and pillows were great and the room was clean and not smoky. The location was quiet... More
