This motel was sold in the last couple months and is now owned by the people who own the Westerner across the street. When we arrived, they did not have our reservation at the Highlander, as it was made prior to the sale. They did put us in the Westerner. Nothing special, no continental breakfast. Management seemed rather uninterested. Room... More

I chose the Highlander for a one-night stay during a road trip. Had been to Williams once before and I knew the motel's location was perfect for seeing the town on foot. Williams is also a great location to stay when visiting the Grand Canyon, although that wasn't on this year's itinerary. I was in Room 9, which had a... More

The Highland hotel was clean and simple. Loved the town and would stay there again! The owner was really warm and welcoming. I was short on milk for my little one and he got some for me out of his own fridge.

We stayed at Highlander while visiting the Grand canyon. Room was small but clean. Owner was nice. Not 5 star but suited our purpose. Williams was a nice town with a western show in the street. Would stay here again if visiting Williams

Clean, affordable motel in an area that's generally expensive and fills up quickly. When I got in, I was informed the price on my reservation was higher than the final rate that day and they knocked it down without any prompting. Pleasant, no frill stay in general, but the soundproofing could use some work.

Nice and clean, but not more than what would you expect from a motel in this price range. Located nicely on the way to Grand Canyon, or just on the way. Great for 1 or 2 short nights, wouldn't stay there longer.

Rolled into the Highlander past one am and the manager was still so nice and insisted we take food and drink from the stash for all hotel guests. Room was pleasant and clean and he was flexible abt late check-out too. No big frills just a nice place to stay.

We stayed one night and it's a good value motel. The room was clean, it had a nice sized TV with cable and the internet connection was fast. The owner was very nice. Every room is different, we had the Mustang room.

We stayed at this motel in the quaint town of Williams in Arizona in order to see the Grand Canyon. The motel is about 50 miles from the Grand Canyon. This place is in need of an update. The decor is kind of old west. Old lamps, exposed beamed ceilings and the lowest sink I've ever dealt with.Will only stay... More

We arrived at dusk, freezing from a 60 mile bike ride in 40 degrees. The owner sent me straight to the room without checking in and told me to turn up the heat and get in a hot shower. The shower was powerful and had as much hot water as I needed. This 1936 motel has been nicely renovated with... More
