We stayed here for two nights in July for a visit to the Grand Canyon and the surrounding area. The hotel is easy to find on a main street with a public parking area across the street. The staircase is long and the treads are narrow, but wasn't a problem for us. Mtion-sensing lights illuminate the stairs. There is wireless internet access if you have a computer or iPad. We are a family of four and stayed in the Big Bertha room, which was quite large. It has two queen beds, an armoire, a dresser, and a TV. The room is decorated in Victorian through Art Deco style and was very charming. The beds were comfortable. There is no A/C, but even in July we didn't need it. The temperatures were very pleasant and a ceiling fan kept the air moving. The bathroom is quite large, with an antique tub with claw feet. The room faces away from the street. We never heard any of the other guests, but we did hear some noise from bar patrons from the building behind the Red Garter. We shut the window and it was no noisier than a neighbor with the TV up a little loud. They eventually left.
Breakfast was served from the bakery downstairs, any of the pastries in the case (which were delicious), served with fruit and your choice of three juices, milk, and/or coffee. Also available were cereal choices and yogurt. The innkeeper, (John?) greeted us both mornings and we had some great conversations about the Grand Canyon and the local area. He has posted several sightseeing loops on his website, which we followed and greatly appreciated, as we never heard of some of the national monuments, and they were definitely worth visiting. We enjoyed our stay very much.
