    I reserved a king size bed. Which we did not get. The hotel felt and looked dirty. Things were broken in the room cable selection was poor no espn no sports period. The hot water was brown For the price, I expected a lot more . I will not stay at this hotel again. The Big breakfast that the website advertises, Not true they were out of everything all three mornings, by 8.

    I liked the nighly rates that helped my family save time and money on our road trip!

    The customer service representative at the front desk was very short with me, and rude. I felt like I was rushed and un-valued as a customer. We were unable to take part in the free continetal breakfast as well because of the location was too small. It only sat about 10 people which is far less than the hotel occupys. We had to go and buy breakfast for my son, which we had not at all planned on. Our hotel room was not very clean either. We chose not to use the shower because of it. I have been to Howard Johnson before and had a decend stay but not this particular location, which I would not recomment to anyone.

    It was located close to the downtown Williams shopping area.

    The hotel owner was rude on check-in, the towels were thin and dirty, the pool and spa were closed, the non-smoking floors allowed smokers which made the non-smoking room fill with smoke.

    The lobby was unbearably hot first thing in the morning and the continental breakfast was a joke

    Breakfast - fresh waffles etc.

    The airconditioning was not working despite the thermostat being changed. Airconditionoing is poor. The soap etc provided are of poor quality.

    Williams is a typical village in route 66 with restaurants, supermarkets, etc. A good and cheap place to visit the south rim of Canyon. Have indoor pool and jacuzzi.

    The personnel is not really sympathetic

    the spa! very nice after a long day, and the breakfast.

  • Older travelers

    we didn't like how we could hear everything. We were kept up most of the night after driving 5 hours to get there by the customer above us, we could hear them walk across the floor and we could hear the TV all night.

    It was close to the Grand Canyon Railway without paying the price of the Grand Canyon Hotel

    We didn't get the room type we booked through you, which was later adjusted on our credit card. The continental breakfast was very limited and they were out of some items. When we were having problems not getting our king size room the desk clerk wasn't very accommodating. It took calling you to get some response from him.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Even though the room was clean, the air conditioner didn't work properly so the room wouldn't cool enough for comfortable sleeping. The continental breakfast was less than satisfactory. There were no bread choices for toast (only white was offered) and the waffle batter was so thin the waffles came out more like crepes. The desk clerk was rude on check-in when we questioned the room price, and he had a credit card number on our reservation that wasn't the one given. We will not stay here again nor would we recommend it to others.

    Didn't like anything other than the location. Also I can give 6 out of 10 for cleanliness of the room ---Gerald Silva----

    Totally dissatisfy with the quality of the hotel at Wiiliams. My first Howard Jonson hotel experience was at Toronto Canada in 2005 and was a nice hotel. Because of that experience I choose this hotel and totally unhappy with everything. Hotel employee at the reception didn't had a greeting or smile on her face and talked like a robot. We skiped the breakfast even its free because of the quality of dining area. I beleive this is a franchise branch and this is how your comapny reputaion goes down. I will never book Howard Johnson Hotels [ Specially hj at Williams] or recommend to any of my family members. ----Gerald Silva----

    We liked the town of Williams az, walking along Route 66 in the town that evening and seeing the Retro-Americana was great. Easy one hour drive to the Grand Canyon.

    Hotel poorly maintained. Water was yellow and undrinkable due to high manganese content. Kids did not want to enter swimming pool due to the yellow water. Wireless internet did not work.due to the yellow water.
