IT is an OK place to stay, close to the Grand Canyon is an advantage
The room was clean and neat, the air and water were working fine. We use the hotel to sleep only. Except one night that we ate and had the buffet. Too much food, some of it was of good quality. The parking is not that easy. Depending on the time of the night, you may have to walk a bit because the parking is outside basically on the street. The facilities need some repairs. The AC of our room (353) was hanging out of four screws that came out of the wall. It looks like it has been like that for a while.

Large comfortable room.
We chose to stay in Tusayan because of its proximity to the Grand Canyon and planned to use the shuttle bus. We ended up driving to the park instead but our one night stay was pleasant and comfortable in our large room. The separate sitting area with TV could be closed off from the bedroom area so my early riser husband could read or watch TV while I slept.

We recently stayed at this hotel and booked 2 rooms for 4 people. We had planned to have a late night and hence agreed with the hotel for a late checkout at 12 pm the following morning. Unfortunately despite that and the 'do not disturb' sign on both doors, we were woken up early twice per room by housekeeping trying to come in and then again demanding to know when we were checking out. There was no accountability when we spoke to the front desk and we were told it was a 'housekeeping issue'. Basically, if you expect to have a restful stay, do not book in this hotel.

Adequate place to stay
This Hotel is nothing special, but it was a convenient location being a 20 min drive away from the Grand Canyon. There are free shuttles in Tusayan you can get to take you into the Canyon as parking lots can fill up, but we went at about 715am and there was plenty of parking. The hotel is a bit odd as the section we were in all surround a central indoor restaurant area which has a high roof and trees. Blue fairy lights on the trees give it a cheap feel, would be better without them or with just plain white fairy lights. They play music in the central area for most of the day which you can hear quite loudly in your room, I think they turned it off around 10pm, but I think the overall experience would be better without it altogether.
The room interiors are average, a bit dated. But overall it is a fine place to stay, it was clean, wish we had paid less for it but I think that is more to do with the location.

Great hotel outside south rim
This was a great hotel for our one night stay. It’s reasonably close to the south rim, less than a 20 min drive to the rim. We had a corner room and it was significant size which was amazing, my only complaint was there was very minimal outlets for plug in and the beds were extremely squeaky. You couldn’t move your arm with out the bed squeaking. Overall great hotel and the staff was very kind.
