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

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

Not only is this place one of the dirtiest place I have ever been in. It is also NOT handicap or senior friendly. You have to stay across the street to some detached Lodges, which by the way have no lighting. It was pretty scary walking back from dinner in the dark. What if we came across a bear? We... More

We stayed here for a night to view the Grand Canyon.The lodge had a lot of windows for nice morning sun light.The facility was clean but dated.This lodge was located inside the Grand Canyon National Forest but not on the rim. However, it was a short drive from there. There was no Wi-Fi, which would have been nice.The room was... More
