Very clean, comfortable, huge bathroom. Looks recently renovated. Highly recommend this lodge if you're looking for somewhere clean and comfortable, and very affordable.On the main road in town, we walked to dinner every night. The breakfast room provides hot and cold food, although the selection is sparse.

Ok I stayed in this motel for 2 nights; each night was in a different room as I did not know for sure how long my stay would be, due to just staying there for a quick hunting trip. Both rooms where very close to the same but the first one room# 110 the bathroom was set up very odd...

Very nice motel in the Charming town. , cozy and clean rooms, continental breakfast, but satisfying. Take a walk around Williams, we were cowboys Street show was really nice. There are a number of motels on the main street Williams. They sit on historic Route 66

My family stayed here in October 2012, and other than we couldn't find a hotel close to the Grand Canyon,we chose this EconoLodge.It is quite a bit run down, but very cheap. I would prodably try another hotel if I were to travel through Williams again.

Small rooms, comfy bed, decor a bit old. Decent breakfast. Nicely situated at an hour's drive to the canyons. Price is good, good alternative for people who don't want to shell out at the GC village. Town had a carnival of sorts that day, was very colorful!

It was clean and the beds were comfortable. The air-conditioning was a bit old but did the job. The staff were helpful enough and compared to other places in the area it was pretty cheap. At the end of the day it's an Econo Lodge - that means economy - you get what you pay for. But you're near the...

We were going to stay in Flagstaff but the whole town was booked. So we drove on to Williams. For $84 the Econolodge is not bad but wouldnt pick it again if I had the choice. Its over two miles off 40 in Williams across from a bar. The front desk was very friendly but the facility is out dated....

Needed a place to crash after visiting the grand canyon, and found the Econolodge @ williams. The hotel is situated on the hart of main street, and it was a lot of fun walking the old 66 road and williams main st. The hotel, unfortunately, was very disapointing, especialy because it has good recommendations and rating in trip advisor. Well,...

This place is obviously an old route 66 motel that appears to have been bought out by Econo Lodge. That being said if you don't like older rooms and need something more modern looking this may not be the place for you. I found the place to be decent as I think they did a good job preserving the motels...

It was our great trip to Grand Canyon. To Grand Canyon it was, to Econo Lodge in Williams not so much. First impression when I entered the room: STINKS!!! Really, really bad!!! OLD furniture, OLD bathroom appliances. Apparently, Econo Lodge in Williams has no idea what a bathroom ventilation fan is. Moreover, they do not think they should have ventilation...
