Better than others nearby
We walked in and got a room at the end of July without a reservation. Williams has very little to chose from and this Fairfield Inn is the best choice.
Even so, there is no elevator to the second floor rooms, the breakfast area is too small and the food poor. Gas stations and the local McDonalds are all high priced.
If you want a relatively clean and safe place to sleep on your Grand Canyon vacation, you'll be OK. Just don't expect more.
No Elevator & not up to Marriott Standards
Not as nice as Marriot standards should be. More of a Comfort Inn standards or below. Beds were uncomfortable and the shower had an odor. I wore my flip flops to bathe. This was not a good value for the price. I had to hike the stairs - no elevator. A/C was not on in the room & it was hot (JUNE!). Breakfast was not memorable.
Worst Marriott we've seen
I was shocked. We travel a lot, and stay at a lot of Marriotts. This was the worst we have ever seen. I am sure that the Marriott folks haven't visited this hotel in a while, otherwise it most certainly wouldn't be carrying the Marriott name.
Cheap but wouldn't stay again.
We arrived to find someone had ate their McDonalds lunch in our room, leaving a rumpled bed, ketchup stains and lettuce bits on the night stand. The carpet was dirty and while everything else seemed reasonably clean we decided to skip our reservations for the next day. We were also disappointed to find the pool was OUTDOORS and closed. Rather silly for a place where the temperatures are in the 40 - 60 range for over half the year. The continental breakfast, which wasn't great, was served in an area far to small to handle the crowd. The rates were very reasonable, but as usual you get what you pay for. I would not stay here again!
Great Overnight before the Train
Arrived very tired and the front desk was still processing rooms but said to give them an hour. Considering it was 1pm they were very pleasant. Had 2 rooms, they were;
Breakfast was convenient, prompt and kept supplied.
Around the corner from the train to Grand Canyon. If you need a comfortable room and want to save some money and don't expect the Westin, this place is worth it.
Couldn't be more helpful!
We stayed here one night in August 2004, the staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful, full of useful information and advice.
Whilst there my daughter left a much loved teddy bear in the room, we phoned a day later, the receptionist Janet was great and the bear arrived back in the UK before we did.
The hotel was nice, the rooms were clean. nice pool and the breakfast was good too.
Full marks to the Fairfield Inn
On the edge of town but very clean and a decent pool. some of the motels in the town are looking very tired and rundown we actually walked away from one after inspecting the room. good continental breakfast. Even had Praire dogs playing on the spare ground beside the hotel.Williams is about 1 hr from Grand Canyon but as we hadn't booked in advance we couldn't get any closer. Ate at Twisters a 1950's style diner and gift shop really interesting and Happy days! Town had a western show in the street in the evening which was a bit of fun Considering the closeness to the canyon it wasn't over cheesy or too touristy
I have never been this disappointed with the cleanliness of a Marriott property. I generally only expect a clean/basic room from a Fairfield Inn - this room was far under my expectations. The bathroom floor was very sticky and the room was generally run-down. The continental breakfast display had flies swarming around the bagels and bread. (We only stayed one night and left as early as possible the next morning without finishing breakfast.) To top it off, the hotel told us they could not give us a receipt or anything demonstrating that we had checked out due to a system failure. I was extremely unimpressed with this property.
We stayed here overnight on the way to the Grand Canyon. Very well informed and welcomed by receptionist who gave us a good run down on what was going on in town that night. Rooms were clean, facilities very good, and the continental breakfast was the best we had on our whole trip. No hesitation in recommending this hotel.
I stayed here April 2004 for 1 night prior to a trip to the Grand Canyon. The rooms were very clean and the hotel is right off the interstate but probably far enough for noise to not be a factor. Very clean rooms and seems to be a newer hotel. I paid arond $65 total for the stay. It is less than an hour from the south entrance to the Grand Canyon. We ate dinner at the Pine ? restaurant just off route 66. I'd rate it around average for the food. Good sized portions and great deserts.

... consider staying there rather than backtracking to Williams and doing it all over again in the morning. However, when we see the only two options for accommodation in town, one of which is closed - you have got to be joking! Williams it is! And thankfully we did go back to Williams - only 20 minutes away anyway. What a great little town with Route 66 running smack bang through the middle. The street is just like stepping back into the 50's and 60's. Actually ...

... one was the biggest we had found with items in the pot. At 11am we checked out and finally headed towards Flagstaff, our destination of the day. Passing by plenty of desert now, barren & nothing to look at apart from billboards & odd towns: Joseph City - hardly a city, a pocket sized town with a dirty great coal mining plant in it. Winslow - Route 66 divides both sides of the main town, we came off at the 2nd junction into The town onto 3rd avenue, seeing a few ...
