Last minute booking. Owner was very friendly, gave us some tips for dinner and some muffins for breakfast. Stayed in family room, enough space for 4 people. Bathroom could be bigger though. Excellent location. Little bit older, but cosy and clean.

the bed was like a circus trampoline as a few well-worn wires and a bit of fluff on top passed as a mattress...the "carpet" was sticky with foot disease and funk...had to wear socks to avoid contact...the bathroom door did not close....the drain pipe was missing providing a "hillbily shower" to everyone trying to get through the parking lot...at $60/nite...

We (5) stayed for two nights in a family suite with separate bedroom. The room was a bit tight to move around, but satisfactory. The hotel owner was very friendly and helpful (giving us dinner coupons and recommending to go see the nightly gun fight). The hotel is a little far to the restaurants in town to walk if you... More

We stayed in the family suite, which had 3 beds. The rooms was nice, if dated. The beds which is really what we wanted were so so, with at least one bed still having plastic on the mattress. Other then that it was nice. The town itself was nice as well, a little on the touristy side, but nice.

Motel is clean, comfortable, and a great find at a great price. The owner is very nice and freely makes recommendations on restaurants and things to do. The motel is at the eastern edge of Williams on fabled Route 66. Everything is within walking distance though if you want to drive there is plenty of parking available. Room included fridge,... More

We stayed in this motel on our way to the Grand Canyon. Although it's an older motel it was clean, a good location and very affordable. The staff was very nice and friendly and accommodating. Would stay at this motel again if I was in the area.
