“A Diamond in the Desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We really enjoyed our stay here. Maybe we didn't have very high expectations but this place really surprised us. The room was big and nicely decorated in a Southwest theme. There is a very lovely garden in the courtyard and the Little Colorado River is right behind the property. We had fun poking around the trading post and even bought a few souvenirs. Dinner was another surprise. The old dining room was beautiful. It has a punched tin ceiling and huge stone fireplace with lots of southwest artwork on the walls. The food was good to. Try the Navajo Taco, but beware order the mini unless you plan to share. The only thing we would have liked was a fridge in the room and there was plenty of room for them to add this.

This place was pretty nice. It is a huge tourist attraction with a huge shopping area and restaurant where tour buses stop but they did a great job keeping all of that noise away from the hotel rooms. The rooms were pretty decent in size and staff was fairly friendly. My only complaint was the uncomfortable bed. The hotel does allow pets, which is nice. Be careful in the restaurant, the food is very greasy and portion sizes are HUGE. My boyfriend got sick from dinner there. All in all it is a nice place to stay pretty close to the Grand Canyon.
F.Y.I. for planning purposes- there is nothing around the hotel (restaurants, stores, etc) other than what's on their property, there is a gas station on their property.

We booked a one night stay after a stop at the Grand Canyon. This place is a great find and cheaper than staying in the national park. Our room was large, quaint, and reasonably quiet. If you're looking for brand new facilities, don't come here. It was a bit hard to find the check-in point, since it is located quite a ways back in the gift shop/restaurant. The restaurant has a nice variety and the service is good. We got here after dark, and it was a bit of a challenge driving around to our room since the area is not well lighted. The courtyard was beautiful. We will stay here again if in the area.

On our retirement trip, my wife and I throughly enjoyed our one night stay and dinner. We watched the sun set over the Little Colorado River, ate a delicious fry bread meal in the wonderful dining room, enjoyed the beautiful gardens in the morning, and explored the trading post and historic buildings. All the people were extremely friendly, informative, and helpful.

The room was spacious, clean, comfortable bed, and had character (when did you last say that about a hotel?). Nice pictures, furniture, etc. The price was as great as the room. This is a hidden gem worth the stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a corner room which are the same size but have more windows. Rooms facing the gardens ar...

Nice over night stop in an area with little or no lodging on the road to Page, Arizona. Room was small but clean and quiet. Place is used for tour buses filled with tourists heading to the Grand Canyon. Has a wonderful store with all sorts of Indian arts and crafts. Also a restaurant on site. Will use again when in the area.

A perfect little 'find' on our trip to the Grand Canyon. Our room was comfortable clean and better equipt than hotels costing half as much again, with nice little Navajo touches and a view over the Little Colorado River Canyon. Plus all the history that is interesting and relevant to the area.

The dining room is beautiful with original features, the Tiffany Glass, the ornate tin ceiling and Huge stone fireplace decorated with Orthentic Indian Head-dresses and weavings. My only critisism was that the meals were too large, we had to leave so much. Breakfast was perfect (we ordered a breakfast sandwich which came with a choice of bread, an omlette & crispy bacon - plus a bowl of fresh fruit) which was $6.

The gift shop is huge, plus there is a small grocery store & delli - for take out sandwiches etc. There is also a lovely little garden area, and another beautiful but expensive up-market gift shop, a Wells Fargo Office, Petrol Station and RV Park. all on the compound which is 30 miles from the Grand Canyon National Park entrance. We would certainly use this Hotel if we pass this way again.

Room Tip: Ask if there is a room overlooking the Canyon.

Everything for the traveler is right here in one place! Check into your HOTEL room, with your pets, and enjoy! The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. They are decorated with a nice southwestern theme (just as i would expect). Only recommendation I would make is to add a small fridge in the rooms. We stayed a couple of nights due to the convenience to the South Rim of the beautiful Grand Canyon! Go SHOPPING! The store is very large and you could spend hours alone just browsing all of the beautiful merchandise. Prices vary depending on what you want. DINE IN at the restaurant or order a meal to take back to your room. The meals were all good but you have to try the Navajo Stew. The SERVICE was outstanding -- the whole team! GAS up and go sightseeing!!! REPEAT...
