On our way to the Grand Canyon, we decided to stay in a small town nearby called Williams. The only problem was that we ended up getting 6 inches of snow!!! It was horrible to drive in. We saw a ton of cars flipped over, turned over, and stuck in ditches. When we finally arrived, we ate dinner at the Red Raven. The town is really cute. It looks like a town out of a storybook.
... stocked up with water & off we went. The path down was surprisingly good & we got to walk through some of the rock, through these natural tunnels! Great to see the different layers up close & the views were spectacular. We made really good time so stopped on a ledge for a bit & saw all the pack mules go down into the canyon to pick the campers up. The route back up, although sweaty & fairly challenging was good fun & we found that we rocketed up there no ...
... drive the roads less traveled. I've driven around the country a couple times in a previous life for work, but that was almost exclusively via the Interstate. With this in mind, we left 395 as soon as possible and headed out for the Mohave Desert and Death Valley. The road in and out of Death Valley is chock full of astounding vistas and big, steep, high elevation change climbs and descents. We recorded a high temp. of 111* at Furnace Creek-no we didn't ...
... take. The last spot was the best one, but it was not easy to get to as we had to drive for six miles down a loose gravel road, hoping we had made good time ahead of the train on Highway 64 previously. (The train only manages about 35 to 40 m.p.h. and we can (illegally) do 70 m.p.h. if no traffic is in front of us. We must have got to the crossing at the town of Willaha about five minutes before the train. I say 'the town of Willaha', but all that is there is the level ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Williams
My partner and I stayed here for two nights early November on our way to the Grand Canyon, and were quite impressed given the price we paid.
Parking was very simple and ample, the rooms were quite nice, very comfortable beds, and the gift shop was quite well received.
The Doc Halliday restaurant on-site was a good feed, and the pool was quite a nice spot also.
Only paid about $60 (Fri-Sat nights) per night. Would definitely stay again if we ever went that way again.
Beautiful town too. Very cute!
My husband and I stayed at this hotel on Sept. 16, and 17, 2004. We came to Williams for the Grand Canyon Railway trip to the Grand Canyon. The hotel seemed clean enough except the bottom of the bathtub could have been cleaner, but I think it was partly worn. The room we were in was a king, non smoking room, and it was spacious and comfortable. Carpets probably could have been cleaned, but weren't terrible. Ate breakfast buffet twice in their restaurant and it was very good. Had cocktails in the lounge the first night and there was entertainment in the form of a guitar player/singer. It was enjoyable and relaxing. Desk clerks were very friendly. There is a coin laundry on this property, which I used. That was handy and nice not to have to take so much dirty laundry home! The pool and whirlpool looked nice, but we did not use them, so can't say for sure. When I looked in there, the pool was mostly empty. Kind of wished I would have brought a bathing suit! I would give this hotel a B- or C+. It looked much nicer than any of the other ones in Williams. The one next to the train depot looked nice, but there were some negative reviews posted about it here on tripadvisor, so we decided not to give it a try. We were glad we stayed at the Holiday Inn. We were able to walk to the small downtown area, though there were sections where there were no sidewalks, but traffic was light , and I felt safe doing that. I would recommend this hotel. We've never went wrong staying at a Holiday Inn, and this was no exception.
My wife and I stayed here for one night at the end of June on our way to the Grand Canyon. I used my PriorityClub points so the stay didn't cost anything.
Doc halliday was great!
We stayed one night at the hotel as part of a tour group package.It was a well kept place.comfy beds.Good size bedrooms and decent furnishing.basic TV(Lots of adverts and old films)very clean bathroom, good strong showers with hot water maintained.Food in the eating area was slow in coming and not that good.The singer who came on the coach to welcome us(doc halliday)was a good talker of the western style but his singing was not.It was an enjoyable stay with an excellent breakfast on route 66 (at a local cafe )the following morning.
Drab but you can dine cheap
Typical Holilday Inn: past it's prime and worn around the edges. I would not stay here again, but this hotel has one virtue: If you are travelling with kids under 12 they can eat free and you can save on your dinner and breakfast the next morning. Here's how: when you check in, they give you a 15% discount on dinner in their restaurant. The food is typical hotel C- fare. After you eat dinner they give you a two-for-one for breakfast the next day. All the while your kids eat free--so for about thirty bucks you can feed your family twice, and breakfast is a buffet, which isn't particularly good, but kids love buffets.
Good if you get a good rate
The room was clean an comfortable and parking was easy. The room amenities were nice, but we didn't notice any continental breakfast which I would expect from a nicer chain. We paid $62 for a Friday night through AAA. I probably wouldn't pay any more than this but it was fine for that price.
Good value for the money/great for families
I stayed at the Williams Holiday Inn this weekend following a trip to the Grand Canyonn. I rate it above average for the value, though it is not a 4-star hotel. The pool/jacuzzi area were excellent for kids. They loved that it was big, and it was busy at the time we were there.
Everything else was pretty much standard Holiday Inn fare. Nothing great, but reliable, especially for family travel.
Williams is a great town for a stop over, a small town, but beautiful and for a one night stay, it's perfect.
This place was fine.....certainly nothing fancy. It seemed clean though. For access to the Grand Canyon, I'd stay closer to the park.
There is no elevator and we were not travelling lightly. If you have a lot of suitcases, ask for a first floor room!
Though I am not an advocate of a staff being the hallmark of a good vacation, I must acknowledge that the first encounter you experience with a hotel front desk agent does set the stage for your outlook at a property. The H.I. staff is likely the best in all of Williams, AZ. The property is fair (2.5 to 3-star) but is clean to fit the H.I. name. The property recently underwent a renovation of soft goods (which means new pillows, blankets, carpets, curtains, etc). In addition, they have a new kitchen/restaurant that can handle groups well. We have used this property in years past with a group tour series and are seriously looking at a return in 2004.
HolidayInn Good Place to Stay
We stayed at this hotel for $59-mid-week. The room was clean and well-maintained. It is not a fancy room, but a roadside, clean, place to stay. There were a couple of good restaurants downtown. One was a Mexican style which offered patio entertainment. Across the street from that was a family style place with delicious pies and food. The only negative at the hotel and area was the washer and dryer at the hotel.
We were on a 2 week driving trip and I NEEDED to do laundry. One dryer took your machine faster than a one-armed bandit. I spoke to the desk and they shrugged and told me they had been having trouble with it. It was rather oh-well. I did two loads of laundry and my $59 room went up about $17.50. So, my advice....stay here, but wash elsewhere.
