“Excellent service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Wifi wasn't strong enough to work but besides that the hotel was great! Great location. Very close to Grand Canyon. Fabulous breakfast! Reasonably priced. A few restaurants close by. Book early on line as it is more expensive to walk in and book. I'd come back again.

Stayed December 2014

Pros: nice room, lobby, and terrific free breakfast. High quality decor throughout, very pleasant. Many well-dressed foreign tourists stay here.

Cons: Way overpriced. Not in the park. Outside in the town of Tusayan, which is a tourist rip-off town, top to bottom. Tusayan has worthless internet, forget it. Few reasonable dining options--we ended up at Wendy's, rather dismal for dinner.
Crowded parking lot. Large bus blocked my parked car, and bus driver very uncooperative.

Grand Canyon National Park should do something to provide honest, decent lodging near the park. Tourists are really at the mercy of a place like Tusayan.

There are several hotels to choose from near the Grand Canyon, but this one was way above the rest. It's only a couple miles from the hotel to the edge of the canyon, so the location was perfect for a good night's rest before a long day of exploring. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The room was spacious and clean. The beds were comfy, and the Bath and Body Works shampoo and conditioner were a welcome surprise. The breakfast selections were awesome not just cereal and yogurt, but eggs, sausage and bacon were available and delicious. I would definitely stay again :)

Great location and hotel for visiting the Grand Canyon South rim, it took hardly any time at all to get to the park. Get up early if you don't want to queue for breakfast. Breakfast was okay, nothing amazing but kept us going for a while.
We managed to get up and have breakfast early enough to avoid the mad rush getting up to catch the sun rise in the Canyon park.
Definitely worth the visit and it is a nice little village to have a brief look around.
Did not get to use the pool and hot tub as it was full of college exchange students which was a shame but still a great hotel to visit and stay at.

Travelled with 3 friends to check out the grand canyon and just needed a cheap a place to stop for the night. Very happy with this hotel; location and price is great and it even had a pool/jaqueezy. All 4 of us wanted to share a room to save some money and the front desk upgraded us to a 2 bedroom kid's suite so we could have 3 beds. 2 grown adults sleeping in bunk beds was a hoot; just added to our fun. The room was very comfortable but the free WIFI was slow, but bear in mind you are in the middle of nowhere. Decent free breakfast too. Overall, I probably wouldn't come here to romance my certain special someone, but for a comfortable night's stay before hitting the road again, it's perfect. Very close to the canyon too!

Room Tip: Kid's suite can sleep 4 adults in 2 bedrooms quite comfortably and affordably! Just have fun!

The hotel location was perfect! The breakfast was great, the room was fantastic. It check in staff was not friendly, actually the only friendly staff I meet was the breakfast lady and 1 housekeeper the rest were kind of jerks. I asked 1 person if we need a parking pass and she said no but later on another staff member told me we did need a parking pass. Also the hotel was sold out so getting a parking spot was extremely difficult,

The hotel was perfectly located at the entrance to the Southern Rim of the Grand Canyon. The check in and out process was simple and quick. The room was clean and very comfortable. All of the amenities were as described. The continental breakfast was very good -- pancake station, eggs, bacon, sausage and your usual cereal and fruit. The staff was very efficient and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting in the area.
