I stayed here three nights with my two adult daughters. The hotel was clean, rooms were nice and the service was very good. Breakfast was not quite as good as other hotels I have stayed at, but the price was much cheaper so it was an offset. There was a great pool, nice hot tub and a wonderful fire pit that the staff gladly turned on because it was raining and cool. They had live music every night in the bar. All in all it was good experience and I would certainly go back again.

Very nice hotel for size of the community. The rooms were clean and of a decent size. Very nice and clean swimming pool and the the fitness center had adequate machines. Very attractive lounge and a decent steak house menu. My only complaint was the prime rib I ordered was a thinner cut than I am used to so my meat was overcooked. I am not accustomed to asking how thick the cut. Pleasantly surprised. Have stayed here prior to this visit and would stay here again.

The facility is in a nice setting up on a hill in beautiful Williams, AZ. The outdoor grounds were nice and well kept. Pool and hot tub looked great although we didn't use them because it was cool and rainy. Breakfast is adequate. The rooms were nice and very clean and staff was helpful.

We stopped here for one night on our way to the Grand Canyon. Let me preface the review by stating that we had just come from an awesome stay in Las Vegas, so the four of us were on a "hotel high" that abruptly ended when we entered our room here.

Whenever we travel, we try to stay at Hiltons since we belong to their reward club, and particularly like their Hampton Inns (you may prefer Marriott, Sheraton, holiday inn, best western, whatever--just be nice to yourself and sign up (for free) with a few chains you really like and try to book all your stays within those chains--it pays off with little perks, discounts, free nights, etc). I'm using Hampton Inn as a point of reference, since it would be unfair to compare the BW to a Four Seasons.

Anyway, our $175 (with aaa discount, mind you) 1-King room had no sleeper sofa. A rollaway would have cost an extra $10-$15/night (don't remember). Now, one thing I'll say is that instead of California king, the room must have been a "pharaoh" sized bed because it was very wide and pleasantly comfortable--nothing fancy as far as looks went, but definitely large enough that we ended up not needing the rollaway (2 adults, teen and tween).

Next, breakfast ended at 9 am---sharp---on a Saturday! You should've seen how many people came down and got lucky to get juice for breakfast (and that's if they got down there by 9:05). Breakfast is probably the most important meal while you're on vacation because it fuels you up for your daily activities that often end up sacrificing lunch time/quality. They could have at least mentioned the unusually early closing time during the check-in process. However, I'll give it to them that their scrambled eggs are better than most I've had in a hotel--very buttery. The only explanation I can come up with for this schedule is that the breakfast area occupies the same space as their restaurant, so they probably have to get the guests out of there in preparation for lunch service--still they should have warned me.

Finally, the room had a fridge, but no microwave. When asked about it, the girl told me some rooms have one but we could use the "community" microwave which was located in a general area with a fridge and washer/dryer on 2nf floor. So you can still heat those cold leftovers--just not in your room.

Where they have you is the location. There aren't too many hotels in Williams, and just about all the ones that were there were sold out, so there's not too much you can do (the same thing happened to us in Kingman, on our way to LV--this time a Hampton inn--overpriced because there's not too much out there).

If Williams is your destination, then by all means I recommend this hotel. The hotel room itself was clean, offered a secluded feel since its located on a sort of hill, had a nice tv (our youngest said, "they spent all their money on the tv!") and entertainment armoire--in fact the fridge is under the tv, so don't think that you don't have one. They had a couple of desks and chairs--the room itself was a nice size (plenty room for a sleeper sofa!), so if you're in a pinch, the rollaway bed should not make the room feel like a sardine can.

If, however, you're kind of just stopping by on your way to grand canyon, perhaps want a taste of the old town, to catch the desperado outlaw show in the evenings, get some good food and maybe even check out the farmers market they seem to have on Saturdays---without necessarily spending the night in Williams---then you should probably look into staying 25 miles away in Flagstaff and have a lot more reasonable choices.

In the end, my disappointment was with the price to value ratio. In my opinion, it wasn't worth the price. Maybe it was a combination of it being the July 4th weekend, peak travel season, good old supply and demand, and poor planning on my part (booked it a few days before arrival), but I just cant recommend this hotel without suggesting that you to book well in advance (maybe cheaper?) and without alerting you to the fact that Flagstaff is really just about 25 minutes away.

Now, my conscience is clear.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a stop over on a Great Railways Journeys trip. Nice, comfortable hotel with good facilities. A bit of a walk along seemingly endless corridors to get to our room, but no complaints about room itself, which was spacious and well equipped. Williams is an interesting place to stay, with an Old World charm about it, with quaint shops and good range of restaurants. The cowboy gun fight show is worth watching before getting on the train for the Grand Canyon. The train trip takes two hours through pleasant countryside, and has very informative guided narration about local history. The train is boarded by outlaws at one stage, collecting change for upkeep of the rail track and rolling stock. A great show for adults and children alike. The Grand Canyon is of course a brilliant experience, especially, if like us, one takes a plane trip along its length (take sick bag though). We ate evening meals out in Williams rather than eat in the hotel, but the breakfasts included in the price were of a good quality. Recommended as a place to stay, either short term or for longer as a base.

Room Tip: No advice really. The rooms seemed to be consistent when discussed with fellow travellers. There a...

What a pleasant surprise to see this Best Western nestled amongst the trees that surround Williams after traveling through the desert from California.The hotel has a nice lobby with someone playing music until 10.They have a restaurant too.The staff was very helpful and even offered us a cheaper rate for the first night than the one we booked.Although the other motels are right in town, we much preferred being surrounded by all the trees.My husband went exploring and hiked up the hill twice.

Williams was a pleasant surprise to visit.We stayed here two nights.There are a lot of restaurants and souvenir shops that cater to Route 66 fans.The railroad that takes people to the Grand Canyon is located here.I agree with another reviewer that it is not necessary to take the train to the Canyon.It is less than an hour away and you won't see the canyon until you get off the train.I liked the Best Western in Williams more than the one we stayed at near the Canyon.

We didn't have time to sit by the fire pit or use the pool.The continental breakfast was very good.They had scrambled eggs, sausage,biscuits and gravy, fruit, yogurt, toast, rolls, etc.

We saw the Best Western in Flagstaff and this is a much better location and much newer.
