This is the old Econo-Lodge that was here for years, now this has a new name and Owner. The service is the same, same clean rooms. This is still the place to say for your pocket and it is walking distance to town, if you have 2 to many drinks, you can walk to the Motel and not get stopped... More

Christmas time with my sweet little two year old and my parents bought us tickets to polar express. I was so excited and couldn't wait to book a stay at a nice place to make this a memorable and special time. Unfortunately my little boy came down with a nasty flu bug. I tried my hardest to make it fun... More

My wife and I drive through Williams a few times a year but had never stayed. We did not know what we were missing! We usually stay at Choice Hotels and this one was a good Choice. It is definitely an older property but has been well maintained. Staff was friendly and the rooms, although very small, were well laid... More

We enjoyed our stay here. It is not for everyone. It has been updated. Room was perfectly clean and second day was left the same way. We had a queen bed. Mattress was hard but seemed fairly new and comfortable. Bathtub was big by today's standards and easy to soak in. Shower head was water miser but still pretty good.... More

Stayed for two days and overall the property met my needs. Very clean and good bed for sleeping. Across from a 50's style diner restaurant and more upscale steak house. Easy walk to other touristy type places in downtown Williams. Good location if visiting the Grand Canyon or a long day trip to Monument Valley and back.

Great location; easy walking distance to downtown area. Looks like everything is frozen from the 1960's, which is part of the charm. Very clean and well kept. Breakfast would have been perfect if I was a 6 year old and didn't care about quality and taste. Great place to stay if you're trying to embrace that feeling of the old... More

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.
