Despite the name, Yavapai is not a single "lodge," but rather a large complex of no less than eight separate buildings located off the canyon rim and to the east of Grand Canyon Village. But getting to the Village to eat or hike is no big deal, We were there in March, so we just drove for five minutes. In... More

Stayed here one night - didn't spend much time in the room! But it was solid - clean, two queen beds and OK bathroom. Location was either a short walk or drive to main parking area and canyon viewing points. Overall, good place to sleep, which meant we could maximise our time at the canyon.

The room was ok and the beds were comfortable, but there was a lot of misleading info on the internet about this lodge. This lodge is not in a convenient location. True, it is in the GCNP, but that's all. What you see on the map is where you check in. The actual rooms are farther away (ours was 1/2... More

We only stayed one night. We had two rooms next to each other. The rooms are motel like and very average. There wasn't any wi-fi coverage and 3G was spotty. They do not provide bars of soap or small shampoo/conditioners, there are large stationary bottles in the room. The rooms are standard motel like, glad we had two doubles, as... More

The Yavapai Lodge has some drawbacks that are worth mentioning in more detail below, but I was mainly pleased with my three night stay here and recommend it with only a few reservations. Location: The location is excellent, and the main selling point of the Lodge. Located within the Park grounds, near the Market Plaza, it's steps from a blue... More

There's no point extolling the virtues of the Canyon, but if you're to stay within the Park, then Yavapai is to be recommended. A great big room, spotlessly clean, not much of a view (unless you like trees), but quiet and well located. A ten minute walk to the Canyon edge and a twenty minute stroll to the Bright Angel,...

I expected more basic accommodations at the Grand Canyon. The rooms were very modern and suited our needs for the 8 hours or so a day we were in them. Parking was convenient, location to Visitor Center / General Store / Bus Line was all great as well. The rooms are a bit small but you can make it work... More

This lodge does not have a View but it is comfortable and fairly new rooms. There is a TV in the guest room. The cell service is erratic and there isn't wifi. The heat/air worked very well. It is near the Blue bus line and General store. General store has food, tee shirts, souvenirs and a deli counter. All in... More

We enjoyed our one night stay at the Yavapai Lodge in the Grand Canyon. Room was clean, seemed to be refurbished, close enough to walk to the main lodge/cafe and the Blue bus route, and overall we were pleasantly surprised. Sure, Yavapai doesn't have a canyon view like the more expensive El Tovar, but glad we stayed. We dined at... More

Yavapai Lodge does not have nice canyon view. You basically get a motel room with a parking lot view. It's clean. It's convenient. It's next to a cafe (not so good) and the general store (quite large). It's also in the Blue bus route which takes you around the village. This is a typical national park motel type lodge.
