My husband and I just returned from a first visit to the Grand Canyon. We stayed one night at the Best Western in Tusayan and another night at a lesser property. I will say that our room was large and very clean. We had two queen beds and we booked through Booking.com for $178 PLUS TAX. Which made this expensive as far as we were concerned, but I booked it because it was close to the park and all the " in the park" hotels were already full.
Our room was very clean and had upgrades including an I-pod dock and a "clean" remote control, which was wrapped in a bag. The breakfast was included and was good. The dining room was pleasant and clean. The buffet included frozen waffles and premade sausage patties, the usual scrambled eggs and toast. Fresh fruit and cereal of course. I did notice that bacon was missing from the choices. The food was fine, but not really up to the quality that I expected.
The hotel itself is very nice and the staff is very friendly.
We were asked to join the Best Western Point Program and we were told that after that initial stay that after one more stay, we would have earned a free night. So we searched out another Best Western on our way home and stayed there and were told that the information was incorrect. That program was no longer. So we felt deceived. That was not a good thing.
Next time we go to the Grand Canyon we will stay in Williams, which is 50 miles away. The hotels there are less expensive and it is an easy drive after spending most of the day seeing the canyon. The town itself is inviting and has many restaurants unlike Tusayan where the dining choices are limited. Also the gasoline is around 20 cents a gallon cheaper downtown Williams.
So if you plan a visit to the Grand Canyon, consider staying outside the area to expand your choices.
