There is no internet available at all. They say it is in the lobby, but you can not connect. Rooms are similar to M6. To charge $184/night is absurd. I stayed in the Maswick Lodge in the past and it is much better. I also recommend Bright Angel Lodge.
Really great place for a family trip to the Grand Canyon. Rooms don’t pretend to be posh, but are v spacious and clean, although they have a motel- look about them from the outside. Food is good for families and reasonably priced. Ten minute (brisk) walk to the south rim - we even saw a baby rattler!
Was a little worried given the pics but the room was recently renovated and the beds were very comfortable. The check in was a little chaotic as they lost power but other than than that, the stay was pleasant. I would definitely stay here again!
NEVER STAY HERE - NIGHTMARE, the heater in our room was not working they forced us to sleep in a 61° room two nights in a row, maintenance repeatedly showed up did absolutely nothing and left. We lost all power TWICE. it wasn't until I had a complete fit at the front desk that they moved us. Terrible service, run down, shabby, freezing cold rooms, ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE - THIS IS HELL. Oh and no TV either
There was a heavy rain/snow storm mid-March the day before we came. I was worried because the roads were closed the day before we arrived (18.5 hour drive from Texas). However the roads were clear when we arrived. We checked in at 4pm, had a nice dinner with local brew beer in the lodge’s tavern. We have 2 dogs, they absolutely loved the snow there. There is ample and safe area to take them to potty around the lodge area. The kennel is phenomenal in regards to care and service. They were so accommodating with our detailed care instructions. Weather was hit/miss. Our mule ride was canceled the next day due to heavy rain. We spent that day at El Tovar having lunch and did the scenic drive and got to take a few photos of local mule deer. The gifts shops (4 at park!) were fun to explore during the rain. I got this comfy sweater and pair of hand knitted socks I love. The next day was bright and sunny and we got to hike down south kaibab to cedar ridge. Pack warmer clothes than you think you need!! Also- don’t book outside the park website for rooms. Weather is hit or miss and road closures are frequent-you want to be able to get a reimbursement if needed.…
Horrible place to stay. Overpriced 1 star motel at the best. Just because they are the only hotel in the park, they are not even trying to be customer friendly. Rooms are outdated and stink with dog piss No internet, no wifi!!! BE AWARE! Mold in the rooms, big gaps around doors and windows. No lights outside, very hard to navigate and find your suite. Only 4 car charges for thousand something rooms. Hard to imagine how frustrating it will be during peak season
I was really expecting sub-par based on the reviews. The room was clean, the bed and pillows comfy. That’s enough for me! In a place like the Grand Canyon, connectivity is the least of my worries. Put your device down and enjoy the natural beauty of the area! The one improvement I would suggest is to place the room numbers on the pavement so one can see them at night. We came in after supper. It was hard to see any of the room numbers. I finally remembered the hotel clerk had circled our room on the hotel map.
If you’re looking for somewhere cheaper, this is your best bet but you get what you pay for. The rooms are outdated; such as, no vanity and very outdated bathroom, carpet very old looking, sunlight comes through cracks in door, no microwave, and no wifi. It was a very big shock that there is not wifi in the rooms so hope you have cell service here. The bathroom shower was clogged on arrival and the toilet flushes very slow. The maintenance person told us these have been around since the 50’s so you can imagine the issues. The walls are very thin so you get woke up around 7 to kids every morning. Also, upon check in they want you to sign for things that they don’t explain to you like foregoing housekeeping, donating to the lands for each night you stay, etc. These are optional so just make sure you read before signing. Again, if on a budget, this place will do. In addition, don’t waste your money on the pizza from the tavern because I think it’s a frozen pizza warmed up for ~$12. We ate sandwiches most of the time because the food is not worth it throughout the park.…
When we were looking to stay in Grand Canyon, Yavapai lodge came up. I was surprised at the great price and rating because it's located inside the park. We booked just a week ahead. The day before, due to the crazy snow storm and road closure, they were really nice to allow cancellation, so we went there a day later. Good: clean room. Recently remodeled (east room). Friendly staff. Easy parking. Great price! (First week of March). To improve: loud AC, low bathroom counter. Hallway strong new paint smell (I guess it could be a good thing the following week)
The location of the lodge is ideal, with easy access to the South Rim viewpoints you can't go wrong. There is also a shop located near the lodge with a great selection of merchandise, food and more which was handy for dinner during our stay. When we arrived, the first room they sent us to, whilst it wasn't unpleasant unfortunately the air-con wasn't working and in the middle of summer it was far from ideal. But we called the reception and within no time they had a room available for us to move to. The room was ideal for our stay, we were out sightseeing for most of our time but it was perfect for when we had finished the day. Not that it's a necessity, but if like me and you don't have access to data and need wifi to contact family, then you will have to go down to the main lodge for access to wifi as it isn't available in the room, but the walk down is pleasant enough to not make it an issue. Plus, on our walk down we had the pleasure of seeing some locals to the park :)…
