We had an overnight stay in Williams, AZ at an apparently recently renovated Howard Johnson's hotel. Really nice overhead rain shower in the tub. It was very clean, pleasant staff, and they had a waffle and sweet rolls breakfast. No eggs or meat, but very tasty. It was a short walk to enjoy the cute "old town" area of Williams.

My recent stay at this location was delightful. The front desk employees were friendly and professional. The housekeeping staff was excellent, especially Angelina who was responsible for my room. The express breakfast was fresh, well presented. The staff kept up with a high volume of guests of all ages, several countries, and many individual requests with aplomb.

Upon arrival I met the desk clerk from hell. Every question I asked he seemed put out or offended that I would ask a question. He was little interested in the fact that I even stayed at his motel. The room was fine, but he just made our stay miserable.

Twenty-four of us piled into our cars for the Fun Run and stayed a night in Williams. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our group with a block reservation. Thank-you to BJ the manager. The pool and Jacuzzi were spotless and so relaxing. The kids were welcomed and enjoyed the pool tremendously. The rooms were clean and... More

The room was fairly standard, it had a refrigerator and microwave. The bath was a nice size and the shower head was high enough to stand under. When you are tall this is a nice feature. It has easy freeway access but far enough away to be quiet. The city of Williams is very interesting. It is the last city... More

I sit in the room now as i write this and i have no complaints! The rooms look newly renovated with what i consider to be a larger flat screen than most hotels. The rooms are clean and the service was great. The hotel is only a block away from route 66 with dozens of excellent looking restaurants (obviously i... More

Breakfast was very good with options of waffles, cereal, toast, yogurt and fresh fruit. Staff was very friendly. We were within walking distance of businesses and the... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this property in Williams. Don't let the website photos fool you! The rooms have been nicely upgraded - good furniture and decor, lovely rainshower in the tub, upgraded flooring, and mini fridge, microwave and coffeemaker in the rooms. I didn't try the continental breakfast or the pool area so I can't speak to any of... More

You can't sleep as the A/C unit is too noisy. The room was smell when we opened the door. Finally I got sick after staying in the room for one night. Will not stay here again. Also have ever seen such a mean long face at the front desk. The one star was given to the indoor spa and pool.... More
