It's all about location when you stay here. Rooms are basic but functional. They are designed for a 1 or 2 night stay. There is a shop and cafe on site but you need to watch the opening times. Take a walk at dusk and enjoy the views of the canyon, this is the reason to be here.

We've stayed in the Yavapai Lodge "East" during our roadtrip through the United States in July 2014. Since we arrived by car it was great that the hotel was very easy to find and had alot of parking spaces just infront of the rooms. When checking in we were not sure what to expect but when we could finally enter... More

What to say about the Grand Canyon - amazing!! ... Came on short notice so not much to choose from. The East rooms here are above average with a/c (awesome view out the window into the forest) but DON'T get one at the ends of the hall if you are not getting up early - you will be bothered by...

How often do you get to go to the Grand Canyon? For us, maybe once in a lifetime. So we wanted to stay in the park and close to the rim. This lodge does exactly that, no frills attached, but comes at a price. Though clean and very friendly, it's just your basic motel without air conditioning or wifi. If... More

Just stayed 2 nights as part of our "tour" of the west coast. Had no idea what to expect. The accommodation was booked by our travel agent. Struggled to find it on the sat nav but turns out you just put "Grand Canyon" as there seems to be just one road in. £25 access at the gate then drive to... More

We stayed in one of the lodges. Very basic but all you need. No air con. Ceiling fan was adequate. Incredibly dark at night so take a torch. we were about 1000yds from South Rim of Canyon and wandered down to catch sunset which was terrific but as soon as the sun had gone we had a difficult time getting...

Thank you for your comments on our Yavapai Lodge. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, and the advise to bring a flashlight is excellent. Grand Canyon is very aware of maintaining a dark sky environment. The star gazing is spectacular, and maintaining low lighting is part of the reason why. More

This is one of the best national park lodge rooms I have stayed. I stayed in the east side rooms and they were fantastic. Nothing much to talk about when you look from the outside, but when you see the room, that opinion changes. The beds were comfortable. Bathroom and bedroom were NEAT and had a premium look. It had...

It was a great experience, big bedroom, nice bathroom, very clean and comfortable after a long day hiking in the Park. You can admire the sunset and come back to your hotel without driving very long as it is right in the park, with a good cafeteria close to it. We had a view on the woods from the bedroom.... More

The room is typical for what you get at any motel chain like holiday inn express, or best western etc, but inside a national park. Air conditioning, TV ,hair dryers, small refrigerator, ample parking and one of the major hubs for the bus system. We have stayed in many national parks , so I was expecting more dated furnishings -... More
