Yavapai Lodge East Pleasantly surprised by the rooms: very clean and quiet with comfy beds, good air conditioning and heat, lots of hot water, fresh towels every day. Adequate coffee maker and mini fridge. Save money and time while in the park grab a few groceries on your way in at the big Safeway in Williams, Az.

This was the only room I could find months in advance, so book early for any room at the Canyon. The parking here is easy and close to a bus stop. The other hotels seemed to have very limited parking as that area is much more crowded. This room was decent, very clean and we had no issues. We did... More

Our family of four got a great rate (about half-price) on booking.com for this lodge, or we may not have stayed there. But, it was a very clean and comfortable room within the Grand Canyon Village, and a short drive to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. We loved the decor, giving a retro feel to the room. The...

There are not many places to stay near Grand Canyon National Park. This lodge would be the best choice for exploring every bits of Grand Canyon. Apart from location, also it is well occupied and clean. But you need to pack some food. The only restaurant here is serving the low quality food ( the best word to describe is... More

I think the bad reviews of Yavapai are harsh. They can be justified when you consider the very steep price, but otherwise this is a standard updated 3 star motel complex that has good toiletries in a spacious bathroom and nice beds with duvets. The air con works well and it's nice being able to look out at the tree... More

Booked this Lodge as it was the only one available when I booked. It was a great pic! About a 10 min walk to the rim of the Canyon and closer to the market place which has souvenirs groceries and a really good deli where we ended up eating at a lot. When we did end up visiting the other... More

We stayed for 2 nights in early October 2014. We really liked the room and our stay at the Grand canyon. The room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. No Wi-Fi in the rooms but it worked fine in the cafeteria. Food in the cafeteria was fine and reasonably priced. From the rooms its a short walk... More

Great location right inside Grand Canyon National Park. I was in a Yavapai East room. Basic hotel room. Not great but not awful either. Probably would not stay here again. Would wait for availability at El Tovar.

We spent 2 nights at Yavapai West at the beginning of October. Our room was clean and comfortable, however the area is old and run down and not what you expect for the price. The motel style parking is very convenient though if you have a lot of luggage! It can also get quite hot in there at times so... More

Thank you for your comments on your stay at our Yavapai Lodge. I would not be pleased to be woken up by staff doing exercises, and having an attendant disturb me in my room. I am forwarding your experience to our Rooms Director so they can better plan their morning exercises and be more sensitive to disturbing guests. Thanks again. More

I've never been to the Grand Canyon and wanted accessibility and a decent price. Ok, in the park, nothing is cheap except the water and the shuttles. This was very reasonable. I was concerned by some of the complaints about finding your row of rooms. Not to worry! Signs were everywhere and even traveling by myself with no extra eyes... More

Thank you for your comments on your recent stay at our Yavapai Lodge. I am glad to read that you enjoyed your stay. And you advice of a flashlight is excellent. Due to the attempt to maintain a dark sky environment, lighting is kept to a minimum. And the stars are spectacular! More
