We really liked the location. It's surrounded by trees and is away from town so it’s nice and quiet. The staff is professional, courteous, and accommodating. You are about 1 hour from the Grand Canyon so it makes an ideal base camp. The rooms have been recently renovated and are nice and clean. Ours had a safe, refrigerator, and a nice new flat panel TV. The expanded continental breakfast they advertise is actually a full breakfast with eggs, sausage, cereal, waffles, fruit, and more. And everything was excellent. The indoor pool looked great but we didn’t have time to use it. We think for the price, quality, and amenities it would be hard to find something as good. And for us, having a Denny’s next door with happy hour specials is an added bonus.

We stayed at the Days Inn in Williams AZ as a convenient stopping place bewtwn the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. Williiams is a neat town on old Route 66. We selected Days Inn after seeing how the manager responded to all comments on Trip Advisor. That showed a strong commitment to service and hospitality, which we found reflected in the facility. The room was very nice and clean. Something unusual is that they have Direct TV - so there were more channels to watch than possible. Staff was friendly and offered a good suggestion for a restaurant, and even gave us a coupon for a discount (even though the restaurant was in another hotel). There were a lot of people at breakfast, but the staff made a solid effort to keep everything filled. A good selection of food.

Room Tip: Hotel is seperated from th einterstate, so all rooms are quiet.

We are thrilled you were so happy with your stay at the Days Inn of Williams. Thank you for sharing your great experience with other travelers. We have been working hard to make many improvements to the property after recently purchasing it, and have many more plans to continue to make it even better. Next time you come to Williams make sure to visit Bearizona, it is such a fun excursion. Williams also offers great hunting, fishing along with many hiking trails in the beautiful pines of Northern Arizona! Thanks again, we hope to see you again soon!!

Family of four had a great three night stay while we were visiting the Grand Canyon. Entire hotel has been renovated and we had no problems with our room. Staff was very nice and helpful. Williams is a very nice small town with a nostalgic Route 66 feel. Plenty of nice places eat at reasonable prices. Park Service has a small office downtown so you can get your tickets, info, maps, etc. before you get to the park.

A recently refurbished hotel on the outskirts of Williams. Just too far out to be convenient to 'hike' into town but a lazy drive. Does anyone just walk in the US? If they do, it seems that it has to be called a hike!

It is actually located on the old Route 66 and Williams makes a living out of this historical fact. The hotel is clean, quiet (if you ignore the guests who ride Harley Davidsons. Why the nostaligia and forgiveness for these noisy, smelly, over-sized motorcycles?) and comfortable. An adequate indoor swimming pool.

There was the usual scrum as there is at any hotel that offers a free breakfast. Whilst I'm on observations, insulting to those who take it that way, sorry, why is it that so few people can operate those waffle making machines and, when they do make a mess, what stops them cleaning it up? The food on offer was edible on Day 1 but not good enough to prevent us visiting Dennys next door on Day 2.

Oh, and a convenient distance to the Grand Canyon south rim visitor centre, which is why we were there.

Room Tip: Front of the hotel, as the the noisy motorcycles park at the rear. Also mid-corridor, away from entr...

It was very kind of you to take the time to write a review for other travelers. We have worked very hard to renovate the Days Inn of Williams since our family recently purchased the property and have many plans to continue to make improvements in an effort to make us the nicest hotel in Williams Arizona. Our family also owns the Denny's you visited and are happy you found it up to your expectations.

I had 4 very lovely nights at this Hotel, the staff were so helpful and room was spotless. Loved the bed (I had the choice of 2 in my room). The keycard wouldn't work at first, the maintenance men were there in a minute, and were very good. The breakfast was amazing, with everything you could possibly want.
I cannot fault this hotel, the staff even booked a couple of tours for me, no trouble at all, and to top it off its only an hour from the Grand Canyon, perfect.

We stayed at this hotel on the 8th of Juli 2012 after visiting the grand canyon (south rim) and it was worth it! its not a luxury hotel, but then at the same time its a motel. The best part of it is that the breakfast is included and that they offer free parking!

rooms:
-really spacious
-clean
-nice beds

Location:
-1 hours drive from the south rim
-a lot of restaurants nearby (cheap ones)

The only negative aspect is that we found a lot of old cigarettes in the safe deposit box. But once again they cant controle everything.

would recommend!

We went to the Days Inn over the labor day weekend and what a blast. Great rooms and I really expected as busy as it was that there would possibly be a lot of noise, never heard a thing. Exactly what I like in a hotel when I'm trying to sleep. The pool and hot tub were amazing. The staff was friendly and accomadating. Not to mention the convenience of Dennys To Go right next door. We will definately be staying there again.
