“Very cheap and simple but good value if you are on a budget trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

Our American Triple A -dependant fellow American travellers hesitated. The motel is very simple indeed (some Norwegians might be offended as the flying Norwegian flag outside the hotel was half) but the sheets were clean and so was the bathroom. Continental breakfast was included and it was by far the best continental breakfast we had during our long distance trip Don't know if they have the same breakfast every morning but it was big with fruit, pancakes that you make yourself (we Europeans do not fancy pancakes in the morning that much), bread, cereals and milk, tea and coffee of course, ready made sandwiches etc. Perhaps they have a generous breakfast because they have big signs with "Bikers Welcome!"

Right on the main road so you can take an evening walk on Route 66.

The doubles were $60 but as we were Seniors we paid only $50 in October. Friendly staff.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

We were amazed at the variety and quality of the food served by this motel at the breakfast bar. From the hot and fresh ham/cheese/egg croissant sandwiches and waffles to the spread of fresh fruit (watermelon, apple, banana, grapes, pineapple) -- very pleasant meal was spread in beautiful decor room. The ordinary cereals and juices/drinks were there, but we so enjoyed the fresh fruit. Though an older motel, the rooms are spacious and adequately clean (you may inspect and take your choice of rooms) with king beds, etc. The only item we found not up to specifications were the linens. However, it was easy to swap bath linens for what we wanted.

Room Tip: Familiarize yourself with rooms available (we were happy with rooms on top floor) and the location o...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2011

We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2011. Great welcome from owners, clean, spacious room, comfortable bed, really would recommend this hotel. Yes it is a bit dated, but after staying in 8 other motels, this was one of the nicest. They really looked after us.

This Hotel couldn't be located any better in Williams . A couple miles from 3 or 4 Lakes for fishing . The Front Desk Clerk " Janice " was just the best . Very friendly , very informative about places to go and just an all around great person . We look forward to staying at the Mountain Side Inn on our next trip . The Room was perfect . Everything was Clean , Comfortable Beds , no noise , Great Hot Water but really clean . The continental Breakfast was great . I just love the way they have this place decorated . Old West and we enjoyed it very much . Thank You Janice and Charlie for a great time in Willams . We look forward to our next stay .

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2009

This isn't a great hotel, but it has a certain charm and the price is good. It's an older hotel and looks it. Our room was reasonably comfortable, although perhaps not the cleanest place I've ever seen. There was a crumpled Kleenex between the sheets and a wad of hair under the pillow. And the breakfast was pretty much just toast and Cheerios. But still, it was kind of cute. The staff were very friendly. Our room had a double bed, and a Queen sized bed with a single bed over it, bunkbed style, so it's nice for a family. All in all, I'd stay here again.

Staff was very attentive and helped us plan our Grand Canyon excursion, and was very helpful! Thank you Yesika! Its a dated motel, but the price is great, the room was mostly clean and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Short walk to great restaurants and shopping. We had no problem with internet, cable tv, staff, towels, anything. We even stayed an extra night for the peace and quiet! Thanks for the enjoyable stay.
