Howard Johnson Express Inn - Williams
Ranked #15 of 30 Hotels in Williams
Reviewed July 10, 2005

The Howard Johnson, got my tour group out of a hole when the Holiday Inn, Williams resold our rooms. Other than the smell of Brinjal pickle, the hotel was conveniently located and was reasonably clean. Pool was small but the Jacuzzi was a nice touch. Lack of breakfast was a downer. OK overall.

Stayed: July 2005

After checking with the Holiday Inn, Rodeway Inn and several other hotels in Williams, we stopped into Howard Johnson. We needed 4 rooms with two beds, preferably non-smoking and none of the other hotels had more than two rooms available. Every hotel other than HoJo quoted a price range from $49 to $79. HoJo did have the four rooms available but was charging $110 per room. When I asked about a AAA discount, the desk clerk knocked off $5. Two parties in our group decided on the $49 hotel while we decided on Howard Johnson. After making it home a day later I decided to check their website and found that the same room, for the middle of the week availability, ranged from $69 to $79. And what did we get for $105 + tax? Bathrooms with the wallpaper stripped from the walls, holes cut into the bathroom ceiling, ratty shower curtains and beds that seemed to have the same sheets from the previous guests. I think we were royally ripped off but had no other recourse after we left. Suffice to say, I will not be staying at a Howard Johnson again. For the price, it is not even close to the rooms we stayed in at “The Views Inn Sedona” a few days before. For $69, the rooms were larger, cleaner and very well decorated.

That's what my son asked when we walked into the main hallway and what we asked ourselves during our stay here in April '03. We never found out and it's probably better that way. The front desk staff was rude- she ignored me while on a personal (?) phone call. When she finally paid attention to me she complained about a family who had just checked in with a "noisy brat" The continental breakfast was pitiful- stale boxed donuts and lukewarm coffee. The indoor pool was nice but we had to walk outside to another building to get to it. Pros: It was cheap & it was close to the depot for the Grand Canyon Railway. We thought we'd save a few bucks ($92, to be exact) and stay here instead of the hotel affiliated with the train but I guess you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Лучше выбирать номер с видом на огороды, а не на дорогу. Но все равно городок тихий.
