Got a great deal from the tourist office. Cabin is cosy and situated 10 steps from the rim edge. Plenty of tourists trying to peek in but not a big problem. Nice log fire and big bed,great for couples.

Cabin is steps away from the South Rim!! Awe inspiring!! Room was very clean and had a great fireplace. The only drawback is that there is little privacy with all the tourists peering into windows. Also, since it is a historic building, tourists think that they can walk into the living quarters! Management should post a sign indicating that this... More

We flew in from Las Vegas to The Grand Canyon for an overnight stay. It was better than I could have imagined. It was a beautiful majestic view. We saw the Sun set and took shots of Tequila to the Greatest Natural Creation on Earth I have seen!

My wife and I stayed here for our one night at the Grand Canyon. I chose it because I wanted to overwhelm her and because I knew it could get cold in the Winter time and I wanted to be able to walk out to the rim and right back in if we wanted to warm up. The cabin is... More

We stayed in the Bulky O'neil Suite for 2 nights in September. The suite has 2 rooms and both are well equipped,there is a small bathroom, and all the suite was exceptionally clean. There is an issue with parking, we struggled to find anywhere near Bright Angel and think this should be addressed by Xanterra. The views from the cabin... More

Staying at the Bucky O'Neil suite was a great experience. The bedroom and living room are very comfortable and the mini fridge/sink/food prep area is a great convenience. The closeness to the canyon edge cannot be beat. Things to watch out for are all the foot traffic and people thinking this is a place they can walk in and look... More

We stayed in the Bucky O'Neill suite for three nights in early August. It is the closest to the South Rim, although several cabjns in Powell lodge are almost as close. The funnest part of staying here was that people were literally walking into the suite all the time. We gave numerous tours and even met a family who was... More

If you have the money and are looking for a unique lifetime experience, this is a great stay. The history and location make it a one-of-a-kind opportunity. The good news is that it is right on the rim and the bad news is that it is right on the rim. Because of its location, literally every visitor to the south... More

The Bright Angel Lodge sits on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and the Buckey O'Neill cabin sits the closest to the rim of ALL lodging in the park, with the most glorious view imaginable! The Buckey is the oldest structure in the park and while staying there, you will feel as if you stepped back in time. You... More

Last minute cancellation, got us the Buckey O'Neil Suite for half the price. Beautiful Suite/Cabin, and amazing views. Would stay again in a heart beat. Everthing about the suite was wonderful. Had a few people peek in the doors and windows, we even invited them in to look around. If you get a chance to stay at the Suite do... More
