The hotel was, but the owners/managers were great, helpful and friendly. They went above and beyond to make our stay easier. The place had been renovated at some point, but the carpets could have used a shampooing. We had complimentary wifi and a continental breakfast.

We chose Ho Jo because it was close the the Grand Canyon. The room was clean and decent sized. Plus it was right around the corner from route 66 and downtown Williams.

This is our third time staying here and each time we have enjoyed the pool, spa, and the hotel's close proximity to downtown Williams. It's a no frills place, but we keep coming back, so I guess that says something. Really, why pay more if we're going to be out and about all day? We've always passed on breakfast, so... More

This hotel was sufficient for our needs but was not anything to write home about. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and our basic needs were met. Pros: basic room, relatively inexpensive compared to Tusayan hotels, had a decent pool and hot tub with long hours, close to downtown Williams. Cons: Hotel is divided into two buildings requiring...

Stayed here on a trip to Grand Canyon. Everything was sold out by the Canyon so stayed here. Booked on line. Paid too much. If you go check out hotel coupons. Found a coupon book the next day with an ad for $59. Prob worth that. Not worth what we paid. No elevator so stay on first floor. Skip their... More
