Literally 100 feet from the canyon. Not luxury but clean and comfortable. NO services or front desk in building but food and shopping a short walk. Good option. CENTALLY LOCATED IN PARK VILLAGE AND NEAR SHUTTLE BUSES.

Clean, comfortable, and has everything you need 40 ft from the rim of the Grand Canyon! TV reception was a little snowy, Unfortunately they have torn out the grassy area around the hotel, because of litigation involving the tourists getting too close to the Elk (and the Elk not liking it). Shame the actions of a few spoil things. You... More

This is an excellent choice for a GC visit. We had a lovely two nights. The lodge is not luxurious but has absolutely everything you need. Their restaurants were good and the whole set up very professional, not surprising since GC is incredibly popular. We saw and walked the canyon in its sunny pomp but also got completely fogged in...

Good option for busy South Rim, room had good, not great view of Canyon, but room was comfortable and convenient location; close to several decent restaurant options. Hotel close to shuttle buses, which are the best and easiest way to navigate the South Rim

We got a room on short notice during spring break. We weren't expecting much but were positively surprised. Nice room with fridge and coffee maker, good coffee, comfy beds, and clean. So close to the rim, beautiful surprise. We also liked their efforts to save water and other resources. We would always stay again.

We stayed for two nights with a partial rim view. We were on the 2nd floor and while you could see the folks walking by on the path, we saw more of the roof from the 1st floor. I'm hard pressed to say whether 1st or 2nd floor was better. Likely 1st would have been best as our 16 month... More

This was a perfect location to stay if you have limited time at the Grand Canyon. The lodge was clean and very comfortable for our family of three. It's not luxurious but has all the conveniences you need. Nice clean bathroom, blowdryer, coffee maker, toiletries and comfortable beds. It's a bit busy in the area, so if I was staying... More

There's no question, it's a treat to be that close to the rim! The hotel is incredibly basic, but you're only there to sleep! It was tight quarters for a family of 4 (and no cable TV service) but we would still stay there again. The parking is a nightmare and we were told things clear out by early evening.... More

We stayed here on a recent visit to the Grand Canyon National Park on the South rim of the canyon. The hotel is rustic and unimposing on the outside. The rooms however have been all updated and are clean, functional and comfortable. The bathrooms while not large are very nicely done. Comfortable beds, pillows and bedding. We asked for a... More

My husband and I stayed here in April 2014 for our 10th Anniversary. It was amazing! The room was very basic - bed, tv, wireless internet, and a bathroom. We requested a rim side room with a view and had a room on the first floor. Being able to see the Grand Canyon from the room was awesome! We were... More
