Me and my family stayed at Maswik just for one night, we came from Los Angeles and going next day to Las vegas, and see Grand Canyon was one of our preferences. Very good Hotel with a big room, since we are five, very clean with a good shower. No wi fi at the room. Excelent Cafeteria where we had lunch and the next day a perfect breakfast. Our room was at a silence place and not on the second floor,it was very good for us, since we had lot of luggages.Don`t expect luxury place, it is very simple but good enough to spend a night. The advantage to be inside the park is a great positive point. The staff at front desk was very kind and helpful, special thanks to Regina.

You don’t expect the Ritz at an outdoor setting like the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. But there are some standards you desire. What we found here missed the mark as far as that goes. I was shocked while taking a shower to find about 20 dark hairs stuck to the widest of the three walls of the stall. And they ranged about 3” to what had to be over a foot long. It was shocking. How could this be missed by the housekeeper? My imagination ran wild. I thought, did a spirit warrior take a shower after the room was cleaned? Then, being in the medical field, I thought that the person is losing so much hair that s/he might be ill – I became more somber with that thought.
As well, the rest of the room showed signs of neglected housekeeping. The coffee carafe had a broken handle, resulting in liquid flowing down the side – onto one’s hand. Careful! There was litter from other residents. I thought about calling Reception about the hairs and requesting someone in authority to come witness what I had found. But I realized that all that would result would be some hapless soul sent to do what I did – just sluice the detritus down the drain. It took several cupfuls of water, I am sorry to say.

Stayed one night at Maswik North on our first visit to the Grand Canyon. The location is literally a 10-min. walk to Bright Angel and El Tovar and has the advantage of being quieter for sleeping. Amenities are fairly basic for the price (no wifi in the room), but the convenience of the location can't be beat. The slightly higher price of the North rooms was justified if you like a little more space, not having hikers trekking by your front door, and a parking spot right at your room.

It was hard to find 2 rooms in the village, even with some anticipation. Still thought it was pricey for the old and not so clean room. We found even old food in the fridge, very disgusting indeed. No breakfast included in the rate. The best thing for sure was the place, very calm and way dark at night, might have something to do with the animals that live in the area (and we've seen lots of them). It's also great to sight stars.

We stayed here for 3 nights during our road trip and we loved it. We stayed in a cabin furthest from the lodge itself, so closest to the rim and we thought it was great. Very spacious for 2 people, and although there was no aircon, this wasn't a problem at the time of our stay. We thought the Maswik cafeteria was perfectly fine - really enjoyed the Philly steak sandwich. And considering the location and the demand for accommodation at the South Rim, we though the whole thing was pretty decent value for money. The desk staff were friendly and efficient, and the cabin was kept very clean during our stay. It was also in a great spot to see deer wandering about in the evening. It enabled us to make the most of our days exploring the South Rim. Would definitely recommend the Maswik Lodge, though maybe not in high summer due to the lack of aircon. NB though, dinner at the El Tovar was overpriced and overrated. Nothing wrong with the food really, but not much of it.

The property looks like a typical 1960's or '70s apt bldg.We stayed in the "Willow" bldg; the rooms are set up in several 2-story bldgs w/20 rooms each, & you walk to the registration bldg which also houses the cafeteria, gift shop & tour desk. The rooms were very clean, furnished in sturdy, utilitarian "lodge-style" furnishings. The bathroom has recent tile & flooring & was vented to the outside (which is handy when having to share a bathroom, for obvious reasons), & had fridge,safe, decent coffee & tea for the AMs, Bed linens were new-ish & very clean. Spotty, grainy TV reception for those evenings in, after touring the canyon. All staff very friendly & helpful. A request for extra pillows was answered within minutes. Anywhere else these rooms would be about $69, similar to a Super 8, or old Holiday Inn.

Room Tip: Normally book several months in advance or take a chance on a cancellation for last-minute booking.

We stayed at the Lodge for 2 nights which was plenty long enough, it was expesive due to the fact that it is close to the rim ie. walking distance. In hindsite a better way to visit the Grand Canyon would be to stay outside the park only 20 min. down the road. THe lodge was basic but clean, the restaurant food was expensive and poor. except the pizza restaurant that was OK.

Room Tip: If you don't like stairs ask for ground floor
