My husband and I ended up in Grand Canyon West due to the Government shutdown. We didn't make it to the canyon until 5p so we felt we didn't have time to see the whole canyon before sunset and still had to figure out where to stay for the night. As we spoke to Luke at the Hualapai Center where you buy the Skywalk tickets he recommended the Hualapai Ranch. We took his suggestion and it was the best thing we did! The town was set up like and old west town, the cabins were clean and seemed newly built. There's a dance hall where meals are served and you can mingle with other guests. They were offering a bonfire with smores but the wind didn't cooperate that night. In the morning there where free wagon rides while old time gunslingers walked through town. Motorcycles riders... the 9 mile gravel road leading to the grand canyon west is not that bad if you're an experienced rider. Be prepared for lots of dust and bumps but it is a wide road which is mostly flat on either side. Also, the ranch allows you to park your motorcycle between the cabins. They provide security for cars but they are understanding of riders wanting to keep their bike close.
