“Great place to spend the night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

If you don't want to / can't afford to stay 'in the park', this is an excellent alternative 15 minutes drive away.

Although the hotel is large, the breakfast room could easily cope and offered one of the finest breakfast selections we've seen on our trip, especially given the room price.

We could hear everything and anything that went on in the hallway. The door did not have very good lining to at least muffle voices, we could hear people whispering to one another. That's how bad it was.

Which leads to the second problem, the housekeeping staff that worked our building were extremely loud. To be more accurate, there were maybe 2-3 that were extremely loud. They would have conversations down the hall from one another as they were cleaning separate rooms.

The restaurants attached here, as well as the breakfast buffet, were average. Don't go here for dinner, you get average food for really high prices.

My advice, pay the extra money and stay in an upgraded room. Avoid eating here.

Room Tip: Don't pick any room by a stairwell. You will hear everything.

Dear Vang0605:

Thank you for your comments concerning your stay at our hotel. I appreciate your taking the time to write and post your review and hope you will accept my apologies for any inconvenience you experienced.

We all were disappointed we failed to give you the fine accommodations we strive for with all our guests. With that said, noise can be issue in any hotel and unfortunately some rooms can be noisier than others depending where they are located on the property. I am sorry you encounter this issue here at our hotel though. We have investigated your comments and will take steps to ensure that the issue you experienced does not happen again to any guest staying in the room you were in. We have also had the Housekeeping Director speak to their staff and they have been made aware of your comment and have taken immediate corrective action.

Again, thank you for bringing this to our attention and we surely hope if you are in our neck of the woods so to speak, you will definitely stay with us and see the improvements we’ve made from your comments.

Sincerely,
Heather

I love the BW Premier hotels and this one was great too. It also had a nice gift shop, restaurant, lounge with fireplace and free breakfast! Great location, only 6 miles from Canyon and a lot cheaper and nicer accommodations than at Canyon. The lobby and other wall have great artifacts, statues and pictures of local history throughout the hotel! Would definitely stay here again especially for $89 a night. Beds were comfy and room was spacious. Tv Remote had been sanitized and placed in its own older. Best of all each room had its own Keurig coffee machine!!!!

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and got a free upgrade to 2 Kings which was a bonus. Based on the negative reviews it seems like most of them were written by travelers who stayed there in the summer, where it's extremely busy. We stayed in the winter and it was the low season and we only have good things to say about our stay. Big and clean rooms and a decent complimentary breakfast. I could imagine that parking would be a problem during the high season though. Other than that, it's a great location if you're visiting the Grand Canyon. It's only a minutes drive to the South Rim entrance.

Dear JonathonT:

Thank you for taking the time to write and post this nice review of our property, Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn.

We were happy you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to upgrade you and your family. We appreciate your kind words and that you enjoyed the all the hotel had to offer from the large size room to the very popular continental breakfast buffet. On another note, it might seem like parking would be a problem but there is a large parking lot on the backside of the hotel that you might not have seen if parking in the front or on the side was closer to your room.

We hope you will visit us again and have just as enjoyable if not better experience.

Sincerely, Heather

I've never stayed at a Best Western resort before, but I found this place to be great. Our room was clean and spacious. Tue bathroom had a bathtub, I also liked the soaps and shampoos being in dispensers. The breakfast was also great. There are many activities like bowling, Whig we had a lot of fun doing. They do have a restaurant, although we ate somewhere else. It's also very close to the Grand Canyon. Overall our stay was great, and this will be our hotel the next time we come to the Grand Canyon.

This is a big hotel with a flow of tourist(groups) checking in and out each day. There were no elevators available to the second floor.
The mainbuilding has restaurants, shops, laundry, bowling, gym and pool. The pool was not looking clean and the whirlpool smelled a lot of chlorine.
The rooms are average. Breakfast is a fastfood buffet, the food was good (compared to other hotel breakfasts). There are only big (8 persons) tables available.
We had dinner in the hotel. It was expensive, but the taste and quality was really good. One of the best in Tusayan.
The wifi signal was not always strong.
Parking and location near Grand Canyon is very good!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 2nd floor can only be reached by stairs.

Dear Dekpau:

Thank you for your comments concerning your stay at the Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn. We appreciate you having taken the time to write and post this review.

I have read through your comments and I apologize you were assigned a guest room which was in one of our two story outer buildings. Only the main hotel building has elevators to the second and third floor. Although I know you didn't know this at the time, we suggest anyone coming to visit us, if stairs are an issue; ask for a room if available in the main building.

We're glad you were able to enjoy your dining experience and some of the other amenities of the hotel. Please do stop and stay with us again if you’re in our area.

Sincerely, Heather
