Kevin and Shirley Young, a couple of California transplants, had a dream of resurrecting this historic property. The Youngs sold almost everything they owned to buy the classic old fixer upper motel.
They moved from the fast paced lifestyle of California, leaving behind lucrative careers with a famous hotel chain, to settle into the charm of Williams where nostalgic neon lights meet wild west cowboys on famous Route 66.
In addition to the historic 1939 flagstone cottage-style motor court, there are two 1929 Santa Fe cabooses and a 1950 Pullman railcar that you can stay in. They offer you a special one-of-a-kind lodging experience in Northern Arizona.
Kevin and Shirley were part-time RVers, so they decided to build a RV park on the property's 13 acres. They opted for quality over quantity for a more intimate feel, being surrounded by the Kaibab National Forest.
The Youngs say it's exciting to offer more than a "cookie cutter" motel and RV park to guests from around the United States and the world. They welcome you with open arms to come and experience their dream and escape from the ordinary at The Canyon Motel & RV Park.
They wish to thank their friends and family who helped them on their journey. They also thank their guests, past, present and future. And most of all they thank God for all the blessings they have been given every single day.
