Fodor's Expert Review Canyon Motel and RV Park

1900 E. Rodeo Rd., Rte. 66, Williams, Arizona, 86046, USA

Sleep in a historic railcar or a stone cottage from a 1938 motor lodge at this 13-acre property at the forest's edge on the outskirts of Williams. The best rooms are the 1929 Santa Fe red cabooses: both are family-friendly (and can sleep up to six people), with two sides separated by a bathroom, giving parents a little privacy. The original wooden floor and tool equipment add to the authenticity. Cottage rooms are built from the local sandstone known for its variegated colors. A Pullman passenger car holds three rooms (railcar suites), each with its own bathroom. The motel also has grills and an outdoor fire pit, seven "dry" campsites (there is no water in the campsite, but restrooms, showers, and laundry are close by), and a 47-space RV park with full hookups.
