We stop in here.for some R+R after a hike from rim to rim in the.Grand Canyon and it was just what the doctor ordered. A hot tub and pool to soak in and.not a lot.of people. Nice.little breakfast, hot shower and.only $62. Who says no to that?! A pretty quiet place.for being so close to the action in town.

When booking our reservation we were quoted a "total for stay" price but when checking in and signing my credit card I discovered a hidden fee that the manager explained it was for the pool and internet. I showed him my confirmation reservation showing him the price I agreed to and he pointed out the fine print that I had... More

No security for guests. Wifi poor The fate of this hotel to be working and its location. I was three nights, and it was enough. It is worth looking for another... More

Hotel manager/owners photocopied my credit card & ID, said they had no info from my res on website. They were very rude & property was dirty. Breakfast was horrible, ended up leaving & going out to breakfast.

Wasn't too sure when we pulled in to register, because the parking lot was being sealed and there were no cars parked at the motel. Managers were friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Lodgings were near the Grand Canyon Train Station, which was important to us.

You probably want to stay here because all accommodation really close to the Grand Canyon entrance is either booked or very expensive. This place will serve your needs with clean rooms and friendly staff. And the less than one hour car trip to the park entrance was acceptable. Williams seems to be invaded by Route66 tourist traps. This hotels location... More

Pleasantly surprised! We had a last minute change in our travel plans that resulted in our need to find a new place to stay. We made reservations here and were overall—pleasantly surprised! The comments about the continental breakfast are accurate and the service isn't great. But overall, the room was clean, comfortable, and updated.

We needed a place to stay at 1:30 in the morning. This was the cheapest in town and cut us a deal. . Bed was very comfortable. Had a decent breakfast, juice, milk, muffins, cereal, and the best part was the waffles. The hotel is located very close to the train terminal. The only complaint is it was a bit... More
