We stayed out of Las Vegas on this family vacation, rented a car and drove to the Grand Canyon for just two days. Had we been able to stay the week, I would've made reservations on the grounds of the National Park, but we chose this option and were very happy with how it turned out.
The hotel was located just a few minutes from the GC Natl Park entrance. The staff was very helpful with maps and times for getting into the park for sunrise/sunset and providing details on where to pick up essentials for staying at the Canyon all day long.
The room (2 queen beds) was what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express: clean and beds were comfortable. Bathroom was definitely small for a family of four, but clean and in good working order (toilet flushed well, water pressure was good). There was a mini-fridge that helped keep our perishables fresh. Parking was free and wifi worked ok (were told its spotty near the canyon anyway).
There were several chain and local restaurants nearby, but only several, although all were within walking distance (up and down a mile-long strip) of the hotel.
For staying at the Grand Canyon just a few days, this hotel was a good choice for cost and location.
