A friend and I stayed at Phantom Ranch for two days in February 2015. Despite snow at the South Rim, it was comparatively warm at the bottom, and I found I was warm with a normal jacket and a rain guard. Though we would have preferred a cabin, availability at the time of our booking made it so we stayed... More

Did the mule trip down and spent one night at Phantom. I had one of the cabins, it could sleep 4, has power, A/C and heater, a little bathroom and a beautiful view. The food was great and they have a vegetarian dinner option. The whole place is very welcoming and well run. The staff Rocks, they are awesome. You... More

We stayed one night in the dorm. The location is beyond wonderful. But the physical plant is run down, and needs a refresh. Staff is nice and helpful (nothing like coffee available at 3:00 am for an early start). Meals are ample and served spot-on time. Challenge can be fellow guests, but that's not the lodge's fault. Get to the... More

Beautiful Haven after a hike down South Kaibab trail. Awesome views of the canyon from the trail and very welcome site of the black bridge. A cold beer, shower and hot meal. It's all good. We stayed 2 nights in the dorms and were able to meet new and interesting people. Everyone settles in early so things get pretty peaceful... More

We stayed for 1 night in the dormitory after hiking down from the top that day. It's a beautiful setting and they are exceptionally organized there. The dorms were as clean as they could be with people coming in with hiking boots all day. There's a toilet, shower and sink in the dorm. Most people were asleep by 9.30pm but... More

Comfort at the bottom of the canyon. After riding the mules down, it was a welcome reward to arrive in Phantom Ranch, and grab a beer in the canteen before dinner. The cabins were comfy, private, and warm. We were in bed at 8 pm after having enjoyed a filling steak dinner with all the trimmings. We were ready for... More

Stayed here 3 wonderful nights. Even though it rained the entire way down and our first day here this is a magical place. Travelled with 4 people who all got on the phone at 7am on March 1, 2014 and kept calling until we got dorm rooms and stew dinners. It wasn't until the morning of our hike in that... More

We stayed TWO nights, had a cabin for four, and loved every minute. Upon walking in after our hike, you feel like you entered an oasis. First stop, the canteen, for air conditioning and some liquid. And some more liquid. The food is great, with two sittings times for both breakfast and dinner. We took late breakfast our first morning,... More

It was a bare bones but really good experience. Pretty fascinating to think that it hasn't really changed since it was built. Certainly at least a once in a lifetime experience, do it if you can! We were lucky and had a cabin with a bathroom in, def. do that if you can.

We stopped here for one night. Everything was clean and functional. As it was cold we were very happy the heating was effective. The history of the place is very interesting. The food was excellent and there was plenty for everyone. We had lots of people eat even if they were campers along the way which I thought was a... More
