We stayed in a motel room at the North Rim Lodge. The rooms were clean and it was just a basic room with a King bed. It was quiet at night and peaceful. There was a porch outside our room which had a couple of chairs. There was a very nice view in the evening of the night sky from our porch area.
The best part about staying here is the North Rim Lodge. It has a beautiful patio which over looks the Grand Canyon. It is just amazing !! The view is incredible. This makes up for the basic room. There is a nice deli there at the lodge that sells hot dogs, pizzas and sandwhiches. It was pretty good. We had dinner in the lodge restaurant. You have to make reservations. We thought it was just okay. It was almost $40. for both of us but it was cafeteria tasting food. I wish we would have just ordered something from the Deli and ate outside on the patio. Another nice part of the lodge is they have a bar there. You can order some drinks at the bar and sit out on the patio. It makes for a nice evening. It is just beautiful and relaxing The night we were there the park had a telescope out so everyone could look at the different stars and planets. I loved it. The people who brought children seemed to love it too.
There is a nice general store at the park. We bought all of our food supplies for hiking there. It was nice as well. Everyone working there was so friendly.
Walking through the park by the cabins this place reminded me so much of a summer camp. I would highly recommend staying here if you can. This place books up early because it is the closest place to stay in the North Rim. We originally were going to stay at Jacob's Lake Inn. Because the North Rim was full. Jacob's Lake seemed pretty far about 1 hour away. I kept calling and eventually there was a cancellation at North Rim. I recommend you do the same keep calling back for cancellations.
Also the hiking is nice in the North Rim some of the trails give you better angles to see the Grand Canyon.
