We enjoyed our overnight stay at The Red Garter in Williams, AZ. The rooms are very clean and well taken care of. It is in an old brothel as the website says and we stayed in The Parlor room. Deb, was very nice and helpful. She makes great treats for breakfast! John, the owner was very nice and informative about... More

Our first trip to the Southwest & the Grand Canyon. We decided to stay in Williams to ride the train. With the area room prices as high as they are, we decided we wanted a unique lodging experience. What is more unique than a turn of the century haunted ex-brothel? This was our first B&B experience and we are hooked!... More

This inn may be small, but it is a great spot to spend a few days. Not only is it clean and comfortable but the people who run it are genuinely friendly. I stayed in the Parlor Room and it was perfect for me as I was travelling solo. Williams rocks on the weekends. There is a great variety of... More

We enjoyed our stay during our trip to the Grand Canyon. The staff was extremely friendly and made us feel at home. The Big Bertha room was big enough for my wife and I and our two kids. The kids enjoyed the evening snacks. I enjoyed the history about this location. The only draw back with the Big Bertha room... More

The Red Garter Inn is perfect for Williams. The little town has such a quaint and quirky atmosphere, it is a shame not to revel in it. When we booked our stay, we didn't think much of Williams, just a place to stay to catch the train up to the Grand Canyon. But we thoroughly enjoyed Williams and the Red... More

My friends and I did a road trip on our vacation in Vegas from Canada to Williams. What a great night in Williams. Great little town and the Red Garter was a true hilight on this trip. We stayed in the Big Bertha room that had a huge bathroom, comfortable beds and a balcony with a view! The owner was... More

We picked this place because it was a historic property and we were not disappointed. The owners are wonderful folks, taking time and care with the place and with the guests. John entertained us at breakfast with fascinating stories of the history of this former brothel. The rooms were old and charming, and impeccably clean. If you want a chain... More

What a perfect stay our time the Red Garter Inn was. Our stay is already two months ago but the nice warm memories are still there..We stayed in the Red Garter Inn because we wanted to stay at an individual place next to the Grand Canyon Railway which we wanted to take. The Red Garter Inn is a very unique... More

We were booked at the Inn in October. The government shutdown closed the Grand Canyon. We called 6 days before our booked date to cancel because of this. We were told they had a 10-day cancellation policy and we would only receive a refund if they were able to rent the room. I kept checking the web page and noticed... More

jwholst, Owner at Red Garter Inn, responded to this review

Please do be aware. When making a reservation at a B&B you are contracting for a big piece, in our case 25%, of the inn's total income. Cancellation policies let you know how seriously the inn takes your reservation and the guests options always include canceling in a timely manner or buying trip insurance. Due to the government shutdown we... More

Located on Historic Route 66 just south of the Grand Canyon, the Red Garter offers lodging and breakfast in a beautifully restored 1897 saloon and bordello.
