“Nice stay for the money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

On our trip to the Grand Canyon, we stayed here for one night. Great location, easy to find. There is another Motel 6 ("East") just 500 feet down the road. Very strange!
In "West" we had a nice, clean, very spacious room on the ground floor with refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, tv and free WiFi. Friendly staff. They don't offer any breakfast, just coffee. Safeway is just around the corner.

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

We stayed at this Motel 6 West while touring through the National parks. Do not confuse this with their sister (Motel 6 East) property one block down and on the opposite side of the street. The rooms are very basic and do not offer a fridge, microwave, clock/radio, coffee maker or hair dryer and the rooms have laminate floors. The beds are nice and firm and the comforters have this southwestern looking Motel 6 logo on them. The sink in the room is separated from the toilet/shower area.

They have a nice large indoor pool and a jacuzzi with the capacity for about 10 people. I used the pool/jacuzzi twice while there and no one else was ever using these facilities. There were showers next to the jacuzzi and plenty of fresh towels in the pool area. The hotel had two washers ($1.75 each) and two dryers ($1.25 each). There is an ice machine in the lobby, a soda machine that states it takes $1, but on a separate piece of paper it states $1.10. There is a room next to the lobby that serves coffee in the morning and offers a microwave, but no type of other breakfast service, another wasted area. Also the lobby has a tall, tall ceiling with a sofa, chair, tv fireplace and not much else in this massive area again more under utilized space. This lobby area was not a typical Motel 6 lobby, so I inquired with the young lady at the reception and she stated this hotel was previously a Holiday Inn.

The main negative item with my stay was that we had rowdy neighbors talking loud and slamming doors for more than one hour. I notified the reception to please speak with the neighbors. Reception made an effort, but the noise continued for at least another hour. The reception stated there was a large group staying at the hotel and there was not really an option to move as they were spread throughout the property, so reception did make an effort to rectify the situation. I even spoke with the neighbors and it finally settled down about thiry minutes after speaking with them. The second night of our stay there were no issues.

For the price and access to the pool, jacuzzi, location to the main grocery store one block away and all the restaurants within walking distance I would return again.

Room Tip: Rooms with the laminate floors generate more noise than the carpeted floors.

First of all: Make sure you go to the right hotel. It´s located on the right side entering Williams on Route 66 from the West! That is: It´s positioned on the south side of the road. Why it´s called West we´ll never know. The East Motel 66 is not as good and is positioned on the other side of the road - the left side entering from the West. This hotel is clean, the parking is easy and the indoor pool is real nice. The best: The service of the front desk crew. All in all it´s the best Motel 6 we ever saw. And we travel a lot, with groups from Europe (20-30 people) . We´ll be back.

Room Tip: The south side rooms are quieter-it´s about the trains passing through at night.

Cheap accomodation and close to town (food, shops, restaurants, pubs and other facilities).
Place is dirty and smelly.
Non-smoking rooms are not really non-smoking cause you can smell smoke and fumes.

Talk about cheap! Despite the good reviews, the price had me a little scared at first... But I was pleasantly surprised. We were in the "pool" building. The room was clean, comfy, quiet, and HUGE! Keep in mind though- these are basic rooms, no amenities like coffee maker, microwave, fridge, etc. But this was fine with us because we were just passing through and needed something cheap and pet-friendly. Also check out Pine Country Restaurant for some awesome breakfast and pie! Right up the road.

Stayed on way to the Grand Canyon. The rooms were large and fairly clean.
No microwave, No fridge. No coffee maker. No hair dryer. No shampoo - conditioner etc...
Furniture was worn and mismatched. Bedding was worn and should have been
replaced. Bath towels we slightly larger than hand towels and so thin you could see
through them. We placed post cards in the out basket at the "front desk" and they
were never delivered.

We just showed up here without booking and it was fairly reasonable considering this is a very touristy town, if a little overpriced for a motel 6. Still, the receptionist was very helpful and friendly, the inside pool and spa was a nice bonus and it was easy to access 'downtown' Williams and the restaurants etc. The room was clean, we actually got 2 beds despite only paying for a small room (don't know if they only have 2 bed rooms or they were just filling the ground floor). There is no elevator which could be a problem if you had big suitcases/a stroller/wheelchair but perhaps they use the other motel 6 across the road if you have these needs, you would be best to enquire before hand.
