“Excellent Choice for Grand Canyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Why pay so much more to stay inside the Grand Canyon National Park when you can save some money at this lovely hotel which is situated just a few minutes drive to the gate entrance of the park. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Room was large, clean and beds were comfortable. Very quiet even though hotel was fully booked. Plenty of parking although it might be difficult to find a spot near your room. Hotel consists of several blocks. Restaurant, shops, reception, breakfast room, laundry and everything else is in the main building so ask for a room in main building if you don't want to walk too far. Only the main building has elevator.

Staff at reception were very helpful and professional. There is also a travel desk where you could get maps, information and book helicopter rides etc.

Great Breakfast in a very large and spacious room enough for all guests. For dinner, we ate at the Coronado Room restaurant within the hotel. Food was good but a bit expensive as serving portion was small. Good value though if you catch the early bird dinner special.

Another great feature of this hotel is the games arcade with pool tables and bowling. What a super idea to have this in the hotel. In the evenings, there is really nothing much to do in Tusayan so it was fun to be able to enjoy these facilities. The bowling was very popular among the many families staying at the hotel.

Would definitely stay here again and absolutely highly recommended.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in November. It was a great stay. The staff was so helpful in giving us advice on our trip. Amy at the front desk was especially helpful. When we were checking in, she suggested that we head right to the canyon to catch the sunset which was beyond spectacular. The room was a good size, nicely decorated and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was spotless. There was a coffee maker with hot water for tea or hot chocolate and a refrigerator. The iPhone dock was a plus. The breakfast buffet was great with a lot of items that you don't usually see on a free breakfast buffet. I read some comments about the food on the buffet being cold (but we just popped our platter into the microwave that was across from the buffet for 30 seconds to resolve that). The restaurant in the hotel was excellent and a bargain if you can catch the early bird special from 4 to 6 p.m. We would recommend this hotel and will stay there again on our next trip to the Grand Canyon.

Seriously great breakfast. Best I've seen for continental. Not just your average fruit loops, muffin and coffee. Spacious, clean room. Very well priced for all that you're getting! I will be coming back to the grand canyon in the future, and I will (without shopping around) be booking a stay here once again.

This was the perfect place to stay while we recently visited the grand canyon. The rooms were huge and very clean. Staff was excellent and very helpful. The price cannot be beat for such a great room. Literally a couple of minutes to the gates of grand canyon. The free breakfast in the morning had many choices and while not the best i have ever had still filled us up. The hot tub in indoors and is quite small but we still squished in 8 people. There is also a bowling alley that was fun and a little lounge. There is not much in this town and the alcohal is expensive in the gas station so I recommend bringing it and snacks with you if possible to save a little money.Nice gift shop as well. The hotel is fantastic- I will return if ever here again.

Dear dudesd:

I’d like to take a moment and thank you for writing and then posting this review of our hotel.

We were so pleased to learn that you thought this was the perfect place to stay here at the Grand Canyon. I know the staff appreciates being complemented and the continental breakfast buffet is good and very popular. As we are in a remote area, items normally less expensive other places do tend to be a bit pricey here although our room prices cannot be beat.

We are so happy again you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next visit.

Sincerely,
Heather

This was by far the nicest Best Western I've ever seen, and was a fabulous value for the money we paid. Our room was massive, extremely clean, and so thoughtfully, tastefully and well decorated. I love all the old black and photos. Even the bathroom was huge and had a very large tub. There was even a Kurig with plenty of coffee. Lots of other nice amenities in the room like clock/radio with Iphone dock. Bed was very large and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Our breakfast buffet, which was included, was fairly large and definitely satisfying. I wanted to stay in the Grand Canyon longer just to stay another night here.

Dear Sarah G:

We appreciate you having taken the time to write and post this review of our hotel.

It was such a pleasure to hear you considered this one of the nicest Best Western you've visited. We appreciated you acknowledging the value of the stay and our staff. Our employees only want every guest to have a memorable and enjoyable trip to the region. In addition, your comment about the old black and white photographic that line the halls are amazing and truly show the rigid and hash times back in the late 1800’s.

We hope you will visit the Grand Canyon area again as all those wonderful amenities, large bath tub and comfortable bed will be waiting just for you :).

Sincerely, Heather
