Thanks to tripadvisor we chose Sheridan house for a 2 night stay while we were visiting the canyon. This is a very nice B&B with modern and comfortable accomodations. We stayed in a suite on the 2nd floor of the Guest House. The main house has a lovely breakfast area consisting of indoor and outdoor tables to enjoy your breakfast. The hosts have developed a menu of 5 different plates you can select from. I tried the burrito which was delicious and HUGE. A breakfast smoothy or yogurt cup are starters before the main course, and cake is even offered as dessert! My wife had the Bagel sandwich and just raved and raved about it. Everything is prepared fresh and this is certainly one of the highlights of this B&B. The view from the breakfast porch is also a huge highlight offering peaceful serenity as you listen to the birds and breath the fresh pine tree air.
A small refridgerator and a tea kettle, as well as a candy dish (with mini snickers etc.) was in our suite. Nice amenities are in the bathroom. The absolute only improvement I could see was maybe higher quality mattresses. Don't get me wrong, they are fine but I prefer the pillowtop type.
While in Williams, we tried the Pizza Factory. We ordered 2 large pizzas, one beer and 3 soft drinks for under $50 and the quality of the pizza was very good. The crust was crispy, which is my favorite and sometimes hard to find. On our 2nd night we tried Rolando's Mexican Food and were pleasantly surprised with the above average quality of the things we ordered. Again around $58 for the four of us with plenty to eat. We stopped at the Canyon Club for a few beers and to watch the NBA finals game. The bartender was sweet and gave us a basket of awesome popcorn to munch on while watching the game. The domestic beers were $3.50 which was fair. They had an awesome shuffleboard table which you don't see often anymore.
The Safeway in Williams is an Awesome store for the size of this town. They offer many prepared Deli Foods if you decide to bring dinner back to your suite. They also have a Starbucks right inside the front door for those of you who are hooked like me.
Gasoline prices are 30 cents a gallon cheaper on the town strip than on the Highway so if you need to fill up, Try the Circle K or two others on the strip. The Dairy Queen has a nostalgic look to it and offers both chocolate and vanilla in the soft serve. We watched some of the "Shoot Out" on main street. A little Hokey for me but maybe fun for small children and it's free entertainment.
We chose to drive to the Canyon rather than ride the train since the train took twice as long and only allowed you a limited time at the Canyon before needing to return to Williams. Once at the park we stopped at their nice Grocery / Deli at the Village for some snacks before heading to the complimentary busses to take us on the Red route to see the best views of the canyon. It is spectacular but bus drivers seemed old/tired/cranky. Also the busses were PACKED which got old really quick. If I ever returned I'd skip the busses and do the personal car route. We parked our car at the visitors center. Each car pays $25 a carload to enter the park.
Please try Sheridan House Inn and Williams. You will not be dissapointed!
