Certificate of Excellence

This hotel features large spacious, nicely appointed and clean rooms at a very good price. Staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Hotel offers breakfast that was OK for the price (i.e., free) as well as a large in-room safe, WiFi, microwave and refrigerator. I have stayed in this hotel before and will continue to stay here next time we visit the Grand Canyon.

Our stay at the Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn was a pleasant surprise. Because of the economical rate, my wife and I expected "run of the mill" accommodations. This establishment exceeded our expectations. The price was outstanding, the rooms were very large, modern and impeccably clean. The "fine dining" restaurant was truly a surprise. My wife and I had our 25th wedding anniversary dinner the previous evening in the "big city" at three times the price and found that the restaurant at this hotel was just as good. Especially the chocolate piano...really cool. The Inn is just a few minutes from the Grand Canyon and has many family oriented features including a bowling alley, family restaurant, and sports bar/restaurant, in addition to the aformentioned fine dining restaurant. Our family has stayed at countless hotels in over thirty countries, in six continents, and this gem is a very pleasant surprise. We will definately being staying here again and recommending the Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn to family and friends.

Dear Ching_wa:

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to compose and post this nice review of our property here at the Grand Canyon.

We were happy you enjoyed your stay but were sorry to learn the walk for you to the main building was so cold and heavy coats were necessary. We do experience cold, snowy and windy weather in the winter quite often but spring and summer are just around the corner. So come back.

Thanks again and hope you will stop in again if yo’re passing through Tusayan.

Sincerely, Heather

My sister and I checked into the hotel and were pleasantly surprised by how outstanding the rooms were. The pictures on their own website do NOT do them justice! The front desk clerk was very helpful, the bowling alley and pool table areas were fun! The free breakfast was great. The prices were great as well. Can't think of any negatives at all and will definitely stay here if we come to grand canyon again.

Room Tip: We chose a room on the first floor which was easily accessed in the 4000 block from the back and the...

We are always so thankful visitors appreciate the wonderful services and amenities we have. The bowling alley/arcade, large spread breakfast buffet and the proximity to the park's entrance can't be beat and are most popular with our guests.

Thanks again and hurry back . . . we look forward to your next visit.

Stayed here in early February and it was the perfect spot for a Grand Canyon stay. Very friendly staff, exceptionally priced room given all of the extras (keurig coffee maker, huge buffet breakfast, great workout room). The TV reception was not great so we had to move to the sports bar to watch the Super Bowl but they were happy to accommodate us.

We stayed here for under $80 and were very happy. The room was large and comfortable, with fridge and microwave. It is very close to the Grand Canyon, as other reviewers pointed out, so close we easily drove up to the south rim to watch sunrise. This is a large motel, but in the winter is not very full, so it was quiet when we were there. They have an indoor waterfall, bar, bowling alley and restaurant onsite. It must be crazy here during the summer crowds! The historical pictures are in the hallways and guest rooms and are very interesting as they all have labels explaining their significance in Grand Canyon history. Our only complaint was that recycled water is used in toilets and the disturbing note on the lid, but maybe the whole town is that way, don't know.

Dear Northernk:
Dear 52Call:

Thank you so much for writing and posting this nice review of our hotel here at the Grand Canyon.

We appreciate your kind words about our property and amenities but were sorry you were disturbed by the "reclaimed" water usage. Reclaimed water is used all over the United States in many, many hotels, but especially here in Arizona. You must remember whether you are at 1,000 ft above sea level in Phoenix or at 7,000 ft here at the canyon, it's all still very much the dry, arid desert where water is not abundant. We try very hard in many different ways to save our water and that is one very efficient way to do so.

We hope you'll visit us again soon and thank you. Sincerely, Heather

Traveling to the grand canyon to just spend a brief time. We wanted to stay close but not pay in-park prices so we took a chance on this hotel. Got a great rate so we were thinking it would be less than mediocre. This place was a treasure. Rooms were huge and clean. Service was friendly. Breakfast was superb--fresh fruit and wonderful biscuits and gravy,etc. Loved that there was a great bowling alley, arcade and a bar that turned tout to be a fun place to just hang out. The hotel looks a little dated, but some of that it just it's rustic charm. We all said we would return there and next time bring out kids.

Thank you so much for the nice review you wrote and posted for our Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn.

You would be surprised how many people are surprised to find a hotel with large, clean rooms, a friendly, knowledgeable staff, wonderful amenities like the bowling alley/arcade and a great breakfast spread here in a remote part of the country like the Grand Canyon . . . but here we are as you find out. And great value for the buck.

Please come again and bring those kids! We look forward to seeing you again.
