We skipped breakfast in the hotel and had a little lie in. The town of Williams was up early as the first train for the Grand Canyon leaves at 10.00am. We watched the end of a Wild West show at the back of the station then went for a wander around the town. Williams is a great little town with its economy reliant on tourism for Route 66 and the …
Well we've had a real mix of a journey so far and today was going to provide us with some more fun managing the Harleys across another unmettled road! Ooooops sorry Tim and Jim!

TravelPod Member ReviewsQuality Inn Kingman
Standard motel at a budget price. The reception staff were very helpful and the rooms are OK but that's where the quality ends.
