Worst worst worst place I've ever stayed. I recently went on a trip with 2 of my friends to the grand canyon. We decided to stay there since it was on rt. 66 and close to the shops. The first thing the indian man told us was to not go into Jessica's restaurant next door. He seemed adamant on that.... More

Although many probably may be "above" staying at the Highlander Motel, we found the experience to be adequate with nary a complaint. Truth be told, it is a small room, and the bed is not super comfortable. However, there are many pluses to offset these minor inconveniences. In a small motel with 12 rooms, you do get to park right... More

We were looking for a clean, safe, comfortable inexpensive room after a day at the Grand Canyon. This fit that criteria nicely. The room was small but everything worked, it was clean, the bathroom was adequate, the beds were comfortable and the linen was very nice, including a better than expected bath towel. We parked right in front of our... More

This is a nice route 66 motel right in downtown Williams at walking distance from restaurants and shops. The rooms are clean and there is a hair dryer and a fridge. Check in and check out are fast and accurate. The WiFi is free but slow. Free parking and the place is safe. The price is very reasonable bt there... More

After having car trouble, I was unable to use my reservation for 7/22/15. Booking.com contacted Highlander Motel on my behalf, to see if an arrangement could be made to either cancel my reservation or issue a raincheck. Highlander refused and stated they had already charged my credit card. I was surprised that they couldn't work with me because I had... More

We chose to stay at this motel in early May of this year on our way to the Grand Canyon and that choice was made from postings on this site. I was so utterly disappointed in this hotel. The room was dingy at best! The room was very small you barely had room to move around the bed, and walk... More

Loved this place. Our first time to the area. This hotel is right on the main strip, thus a very doable walking (strolling, too!) distance to all the cafes and shops, AND conveniently a block from a Safeway grocery store, a rare bit of civilization after hours. I mention this because you'll quickly realize (we're New Yorkers, we stay up... More

Traveled Route 66 with members from our corvette club. Spent one night at the Highlander. Remodeled rooms are very nice. Older rooms nice and clean. Motel is in a good location. If in the area again I would definately stay at the Highlander again.

My family and I visited Grand Canyon on both 18 and 19 May 2015. While there, we decided to spend a night in the Highlander Motel which is about an hour away from Grand Canyon. We took a double room with 2 queen sized beds which was suitable for a family of four to overnight in. The price was very... More

Our family stayed here for 3 nights while visiting friends and the Grand Canyon. It served it's purpose for a place to sleep, shower and be close to our destinations. It's very clean and the owners were very nice.
