“Location, location, location for less than the hotels at the rim”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed at Maswik North in February 2013 and had lowered our expectations for this property after reading the previous mixed reviews. We were very happy with our stay, primarily because of the excellent location. Maswick is less than a 10 minute walk to the rim of the canyon, and only a two minute walk to the cafeteria (okay for breakfast because it's quick and there's a decent variety to choose from). When we first arrived we saw our room had a burnt out bedside lamp and one of the beds had sheets that needed changing (there was what appeared to be a bootprint on the sheet). These minor annoyances were dealt with quickly by the very polite staff. The room itself had a balcony, mini-fridge and in-room safe. If this had been a motel in a typical setting I would have given it a 3/5, but because of the location at the Grand Canyon it deserves to be bumped to a 4. Being so close to the rim at such an affordable price made it all worthwhile - we managed to get the "winter stay 2 night special" which put the room around $100 per night.

We stayed at Maswik Lodge on a family trip in 2005 and were impressed by the standard and value for money. On this trip our accommodation was pre-booked through Grand Canyon Association because I was doing one of their field trips. I had tried to book at other GC accommodation 7 months out but there was nothing available so used the GCA's booking service (they pre-book blocks of budget rooms for their clients) I discovered on arrival that there were in fact rooms available on the nights we were there, so it is always worth asking on check in if you prefer something more upmarket. As a result we were in the 'budget' rooms with no air-conditioning on the top floor of the Lodge and found them oppressively hot at the end of the day. Apart from this however rooms were clean, very large and functional. The rooms now even have a refrigerator, the absence of which I complained about in my last review of the place. Anyway when you're staying in the Grand Canyon, rooms barely matter!

Room Tip: If traveling in summer request a ground floor room, as they may be cooler. If your room is booked fo...

The service was excellent from the bellman and the registration desk considering the volume of people being served by the hotel. I got the feeeling from the activity that this place is a revolving door! The bus stops to take you all over the park are a block or more away so if you have a handicapped person it can be a challenge but active individuals will find the location invigorating. The food in the cafeteria was average but they had a nice selection for everything but deserts. Mule deer were on the property and we enjoyed watching them with their babies on our evening walk to get Pizza in the pizza parlor. The cost was steep for the room quality. Rooms were quiet. The actual beds better than expected for this hotel. Pillows and blankets needed major upgrading! The rooms were dated but very clean! All in all, a good experience!

Room Tip: Bring your own pillows and blankets! Ask for anything you need - staff are very accomodating and hel...

We stayed her because we wanted to stay in the park and be close to the rim. The room itself was just average, something like a days inn or super 8, nothing special but of course the price was $179.00, so we were paying for the loation. It was clean and had a fridge and a balcony. The bed, said to be a queen, was a very samll queen. It was close by the main check in and dining hall and that was nice, and shuttle busses were close by. Staff was very frendly, the lady who checked us in, Tisha was very nice, frendly and enjoyed her job, even the maids cleaning the rooms had a nice smile and a hello. We enjoyd our stay.

Stayed here at our recent visit to the Grand Canyon. The hotel consists of a main reception and dining hall building and a number of log cabins and motel style rooms. We stayed in a motel style room in a very quiet part at the back. The room was big ( for European standards) with two queen size beds and very clean. The decor was functional but one would not expect anything else. The front desk staff were very friendly and we had breakfast in the fast food style dining rooms every morning. Actually, I was quite pleased to find fresh fruit, cereals and green tea despite there being burgers and burritos etc. The hotel is only a short walk from the rim (5 mins) and has one of the village free sightseeing bus stops right outside.

I came to visit Grand Canyon (first time) during winter. I was hoping to see what thousands of other people have seen, but alas, in winter, the ability to see the canyon varies. It was filled with fog/clouds. Hoping that the next day would be better, we went to stay at Maswik Lodge. Partly because it was off season, there was no problem getting a room. Maswik is the lodge that is the least expensive, partly because it was the one that was the most distance from the canyon rim. The rooms were small but had a tv. Wireless was only available in the office. The restaurant was more like a cafeteria than a restaurant, but the breakfast was good.

We had been told Maswik was quite rustic so we were pleastly surprised to see how large and complete it was which included a full program with a great shower with lots of pressure. The room is not glamourous but it was quite comfortable, queen and much larger than expected. It is in a very quiet setting. It was great being close enough that we could enjoy the Canyon sunsets.
I would definitely recommend it.
