No security for guests. Wifi poor The fate of this hotel to be working and its location. I was three nights, and it was enough. It is worth looking for another...

Hotel manager/owners photocopied my credit card & ID, said they had no info from my res on website. They were very rude & property was dirty. Breakfast was horrible, ended up leaving & going out to breakfast.

Wasn't too sure when we pulled in to register, because the parking lot was being sealed and there were no cars parked at the motel. Managers were friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Lodgings were near the Grand Canyon Train Station, which was important to us.

You probably want to stay here because all accommodation really close to the Grand Canyon entrance is either booked or very expensive. This place will serve your needs with clean rooms and friendly staff. And the less than one hour car trip to the park entrance was acceptable. Williams seems to be invaded by Route66 tourist traps. This hotels location...

Pleasantly surprised! We had a last minute change in our travel plans that resulted in our need to find a new place to stay. We made reservations here and were overall—pleasantly surprised! The comments about the continental breakfast are accurate and the service isn't great. But overall, the room was clean, comfortable, and updated.

We needed a place to stay at 1:30 in the morning. This was the cheapest in town and cut us a deal. . Bed was very comfortable. Had a decent breakfast, juice, milk, muffins, cereal, and the best part was the waffles. The hotel is located very close to the train terminal. The only complaint is it was a bit...

Over priced and insecure. After paying WAY TOO much for the room, when we arrived they wanted to add an additional $3.50 a day service charge. The room would have been fairly priced at $70 or so but not at $274.00.for 2 nights. The doors between the buildings had room key card locks with tape over the locks so anybody...

The room was clean, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The only complaint I have is that when we checked in the lobby had a foul odor like something cooking. I would not go back in there for breakfast because the odor made me nauseous.

The reviews on this hotel were not glowing- however we decided that since we were only staying one night- we would give it a try. I was actually surprised at how nice it was! It was clean and tidy, and the shower was nice too! Our kids enjoyed the pool and the breakfast was great- so great they ran out...
