“Great Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Would have given this another half star if able to. Rooms are located in clusters of buildings yards from the main office/gift shop/dining area. Room was very large and had a nice little balcony. Bathroom had fairly recently been renovated and tiled and was nice. The heat in the room was a little strange and didn't really keep a consistent temperature, but was adequate. If you are on the second floor you'll be carrying all your stuff up stairs, so be aware if that is an issue for you.

We saw a half dozen deer and a fox within 15 minutes of arriving and more deer and elk were visible from the balcony during our stay. The lodge is really close to two tram stations, one to the west end of the paved roadway and multiple trails and overlooks, the other heading into the village and other stations, trails and overlooks. There are also several trails and points of interest within walking distance of the lodge. You can walk to the rim in 5+ minutes.

Would stay here again next time at the Canyon.

Room Tip: We were in the Mesquite building, which was farthest from the dining/shopping and check-in building...

If you choose Xanterra, you can bet on quality of service. Talking about Maswick Lodge SOUTH we have to admit that rooms are too small for 4 people, as we were 3 and we had no room for luggages. For a little more you can have much more.

This lodge is exactly as advertised. Nothing fancy: 70's era, motel-style, no frills. But it just happens to be nestled in a pine forest in the midst of a spectacular national park.

We had two queen beds in a large room with a refrigerator. No air conditioning (unless you count the two wall-mounted fans), but that certainly wasn't an issue in March. A plain old-fashioned tube television, which we didn't use. The bathroom was very small, but the shower provided good pressure and immediate hot water. Everything was clean and fresh-smelling.

The rim of the canyon is a short (10 minutes or so) walk away, with incredible views as well as more lodges, restaurants, and the Bright Angel Trailhead down into the canyon.

We enjoyed everything about our stay here, including breakfast in the Maswik Lodge cafeteria, helpful desk clerks on both check-in and check-out, lots of clean fresh air, and a very quiet night. We especially appreciated the attention to recycling and earth-friendly policies. If we get to visit the Grand Canyon again, I can't imagine spending more on fancier lodging. This place was a perfect national park experience.

Room Tip: Maybe a first floor room is a better choice in hot weather...

My wife and I stayed in Maswik North Juniper building for 3 days in the week of March 10th. We had an excellent stay and would like to stay here when we visit in future. Grand Canyon is a special place and staying inside the park and close to the rim is the way to experience it.

Maswik North's location is very convenient for all services. It is less than a 5 minute walk from the Rim, the Bright Angel trailhead, and the Hermit's rest bus transfer station. It is on the Blue Bus-Village Route. All this means you will spend less time getting to interesting places along the rim.

Despite our late arrival on March 13th at 10 pm the check-in process was welcoming and very efficient. Special thanks to the friendly gentleman with the Scottish accent who checked us in.

Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, quiet and had all amenities. The beds are comfortable, the sink is located just outside the bathroom. There is a TV, hair dryer, refrigerator, iron, ample towels, and in general all the amenities found in a hotel room. I had read the reviews on Tripadvisor prior to my stay and was a little apprehensive. After staying there for 3 nights my opinion is that while this is not an upscale or luxury accommodation, it is an excellent value.

The Maswik Cafeteria is conveniently located in the complex. We had a pizza dinner one evening, and grabbed a sandwich to go on another visit. The prices are reasonable.

The only issues we encountered is WiFi service. The Xanterra Guest Wireless access is fine and I could connect to it without any issues. However their ISP service provider is not reliable. The room is well insulated, and this minimized the noise from a heater that would kick in a few times at night.

One other thing I noticed. Xanterra seems to run the park guest services very well. We availed of several services and encountered no inconveniences. We dined at the El Tovar one night, went on the Canyon Vista Mule ride, rode on the park buses, and shopped at the various stores. Their employees seem happy, are friendly and eager to help, and in general offer very good service.

All in all we had a very memorable and enjoyable vacation and Maswik Lodge North was a winner for us.

Room Tip: Maswik North was a good choice for us. We stayed in the Juniper building. A second floor room is q...

We had visitors in town from Upstate NY. Although it was only a couple days in advance we decided to try to get room sat the Grand Canyon. The Maswik had three rooms available so we booked them. Since it was short notice we did not have high expectations but ended up being VERY pleased with the Maswik. The rooms were large, clean, and quiet. The windows looked out over a treed area that could have been in the middle of a forest. The vaulted ceilings and decor were a perfect compliment to the Grand Canyon visit. The cafeteria has good food at reasonable prices.

On previous visits we always made the Grand Canyon a day trip from Prescott. The stay at the Maswik made the entire trip a much nicer calmer visit. The staff, although very busy, was super friendly, as are most everyone working at the Grand Canyon. We'll do this again on our next visit.

We tend to expect prices and service in tourist destinations such as the Grand Canyon to be overpriced and the staff over worked. The Grand Canyon accommodations and staff are such a pleasure; the prices are reasonable for a National Park and everyone seems to genuinely workign in the Park. Visiting the Grand Canyon can be a life altering experience, and the staff and accommodations make the ancillary facilities a wonderful complement to the visit.

Room Tip: Our second floor room was quiet, but I think all the rooms woudl be as good.

There is no replacement for staying in the park, no matter where you stay. Six of us traveling together stayed in the Redbud building with adjoining rooms on the first of two floors. I was in room 6882. The rooms are average, two beds, TV (not a flat screen, but we didn't use it), updated bathroom, small refrigerator.

A few issues that I had with this hotel:

1. We could hear the people staying directly above us when they were walking around - all night.

2. They use flat sheets on the mattresses. They don't stay on the bed.

3. The blankets were slick and slid off the bed multiple times through the night.

We didn't sleep too well, as you can tell.

A few things I appreciated:

1. We came to this hotel as part of the Grand Canyon Railway package, which was amazing. They had our luggage waiting for us in our room upon arrival.

2. The scenery is amazing, and there are free shuttles that take you all around the local area.

3. The food in the restaurants was reasonably priced and pretty good.

All in all, we had a decent stay in the park. When we come back, I will try one of the other hotels though.

Maswik Lodge was a great choice for my family. It had two restaurants, a gift shop, was a tour pickup/drop off location, and had a lot more close parking spaces than the other lodges in the village. The room was what I expected and all we needed, really. We only were in the room to sleep and shower, otherwise we were enjoying the park. The weather was cool when we stayed here, so the A/C was not an issue, but there are two fans in the room for hotter seasons.
