We were planning a weekend in Williams with another couple. Highlander Motel was recommended to me by another business owner in Williams whom I trusted.
If you prefer the corporate anonymity of a chain hotel, then the Highlander is not for you. However, if cleanliness and comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and comfortable showers, friendly and knowledgeable owners, and a central location are paramount, then Highlander Motel is the place you want to be.
The owners, Alain and Sandra, a delightful young couple from Belgium, were friendly, helpful and fun.
We loved being able to park right in front of our room.
The rooms are small, but very clean. And charmingly decorated. Alain mentioned that they are redecorating and modernising the rooms, however, the heavy, rustic wood furnishings will be staying and really add character to these rooms.
The price is definitely right, and the Highlander is centrally located. We were able to walk to all of the shops, to Starbucks in Safeway 2 doors down, to the restaurants and the bars. The Williams Police Department is a mere 2 doors away.
The motel is also well built so that one doesn't hear all of the outside noise, like in some other hotels. We didn't even hear anything from the rooms on either side of us.
Another review mentioned that the rooms do not have blow dryers, and that is correct, however, Alain is happy to bring you one, if you just ask.
Alain and Sandra are very accomodating and we will certainly stay at Highlander Motel when next we visit Williams.
