... with entertainment and a a train robbery on the way back :) It was 2 1/4 hours each way with 3 1/2 hours to have a good look around - we walked just over a mile of the rim and then caught the bus back to the train depot for ice cream and more photos. On return to williams we had a nice meal and collected some more souvenirs. Vegas today ...

... say again that in the brilliant sunshine of the early afternoon, this was a wild and beautiful unspoilt place with not one telephone or electricity pole. Not even an aeroplane flew over us.
That was the nice bit! Naturally I had to find something that was not clearly marked on either a printout from the internet or in the DeLorme Atlas I had bought some years before: It was Laws Spring - an essential source of water for the first and subsequent trail-blazers. It was indeed one ...
... arts and crafts. We saw a zone-tailed hawk riding the wind above us. I'm not sure if we have seen one before. After leaving the overlook we descended into the Canyon and soon began seeing red rocks. We followed Oak Creek and there were lots of oak trees and other greenery all the way down.
It wasn't long until we stopped at Slide Rock State Park. We paid the entrance fee of $20 and walked back the Pendley Homestead Trail to Slide ...
... back to the Visitor's Center because the bus made so many stops and it was really crowded. Hardly anybody got off at any of the stops but we had to stop at them all.
When we got back it was 5:30 and the Center was closed. So we went to the car and headed back to the house. I made Pizza Casserole for supper. Erin had never had it before and she really liked it. We looked at pictures and blogged and went to bed.

Historical Traveler Reviews Motel 6 Williams West - Grand Canyon
Great Service, Nice Room, Good Coffee and Tea
I booked this motel because I saw the other reviews on this website of how great it is. Those reviews turned out to be great and aided me in planning. Now, I am making this review in order to help others plan.
After renting a car, I drove for a long time to get to Williams and arrived there needing some rest and comfort. After arriving at Motel 6 I was greeted by a nice young woman who was very helpful in registering me and getting me and my family a room-quickly! I was happy to have had such a nice reception at Motel 6.
The room was above average (compared to other American motels) and had better amenities than other motels I have stayed at. The TV has HBO and some other channels which help keep the family busy while father is tired. Over night, I felt safe and was highly satisfied with my room. I had a good view of a hillside and something called Dollar Tree (similar to Big W?). Overall, I got good nights sleep.
In the morning, coffee and tea was served. The tea was great and the coffee was pretty good. This is a good plus in the morning as other motels I've stayed in don't offer this.
Overall, 5 stars for excellent staff, morning coffee and tea, and room value.
Nice clear motel
stayed for one night at motel 6 west.the motel was very clean and the people at the front desk very helpful.price was o.k. we booked 4 month before oneline with a special rate.
We came here for our last night at the Grand Canyon after leaving the EconoLodge. It was very clean, and very new. Highly recommended if you are in the area.
My husband and I recently stayed at this motel in Williams. It is above average for the price and a great value. We travel quite frequently and now that we are retired have been trying to find low cost motels that are above average. This was one of those properties. The staff was Excellent! The rooms were large, clean and provided us with a good nights sleep. You won't find designer shampoo or hand cream but you can save money and bring your own. We went on line and got the Motel 6 internet rate which was $32/night. We have paid much more and gotten much less. A good value and a very nice place to stop for the night
Very nice place and friendly staff
I just stayed in this hotel during the xmas weekend. and it was nice experience.
The rooms are big, clean and the staff is courteous and very friendly. She helped me in the middle of the night when the bathroom got locked from inside. Very nice and clean place, best value for money.
Nice place for the money, location not so great, loud traffic
I just stayed at the Motel 6 West in Williams, for the internet price of about 30.00 a night the place was great, EXCEPT for the location. The West side of the hotel is parallel to a street/corner entrance to a neighborhood and it seemed like 3 out of the 4 cars, or pickups, had dual exhaust and everyone would gun it at the corner so it was not the most quiet or peaceful place. Other than that it was great. If I stayed there again I would ask for a room on the east side of the building or I will probably get a room in a mom n pop thats away from all the noise ( if thats possible). Nice and clean. Freindly staff Everything was in good condition and the room was big.
Nice place to stay for the money!
Nice place to stay for the money. Came to see the Grand Canyon and stayed for a couple of days. Nicer than most Motel 6 that we have stayed in. Big rooms. Clean. No amenities such as hairdryer, iron, refrigerator, microwave. Enjoyed the stay. Would stay again. Right down from the main part of Williams, nice walk. We stayed on the second floor. We did not locate an elevator, so you might want to request the first floor if you don't want to carry everything up the stairs. Good deal for the money.
No more than a place to lay your head. Room door wouldn't lock.
I arrived so late at night, I got the last remaining room - and there was a reason why it was the last.
The door wouldn't close fully. It had obviously been forced at some point, and both the lock and security bar re-fitted as a result. It was a pretty shoddy job. I had to put on a portable pressure lock (I bought it ages ago for use in dodgy hostels) to seal it shut. I've never used it in any motel or hotel apart from this one.
The room itself was very worn with broken fittings, cracked walls and peeling paper. However, it was clean. The bed wasn't comfortable and the pillows were extremely thin.
Williams has few accommodation options, but you might like to try one of the others.
Four of us stayed in June 2004 with our dog. Great deal for the price we paid. Room was very clean. Hotel is close to Safeway so we bought our food from there.
Excellent value for money
Having accommodated us on a late booking the rooms and service were excellent for the money charged. Located close to many amenites.
