A snowy visit

Pleasant room, comfy beds. Well cleaned. Lots of hot water, which was good because it snowed a lot (we visited in March). Additionally, there is heating and a fan in the bath room, making a good impromptu drying room for people who have been out in the snow for a few hours. No WiFi in rooms, the only place to get it is in the reception, which is some distance away.

Don't stay here if you're expecting a five star royal stay; this is simple a good, basic motel with clean rooms, and very convenient location. Our room was in a quiet building, close to the main visitor center so rather than hassle with parking, it was far easier to just walk less than half a mile to the visitor center. Main blue bus line runs right by the motel so you can easily catch the bus to anywhere you'd want to see. Dining hall in the main lodge building was good for breakfast and dinner, pricey but pretty much on par with other dining options. Wifi is only in the main lodge so that was inconvenient but the cable tv worked fine. No air conditioning but when we came you'd never need AC. Heat and ceiling fan worked fine. Beds were comfy and shower was clean with good water pressure.

Disgusting.

Were checked in by receptionist leaning against the wall ( left side of desk ) and treating me like he prefered I had stayed away... Room was in a sort of army barrack looking building. All parking spaces were already occupied, no elevator so dragg your luggage up the stairs. Room stuffed with oversized dull furniture, loose carpet, smelling dusty and badly, first thing we did was opening the window. Just put our luggage in room and went for dinner. Bed was ok but next morning....HORROR HORROR found traces of poo on bathroom floor, had not noticed previous evening because we were so in a hurry. Decided to leave « hotel », it’s not worth to be called a hotel, it’s a dusty, smelly, dirty old dump, immediately.

Only stayed here for one night, but it was perfect for what we needed. You're out all day hiking around, all you really need is a place to sleep. Yes, the rooms are outdated in a lot of ways, but who cares? It's a place to shower and lay your head after a long day on the trails. Conveniently located next to the visitor center & all the shuttles to take you wherever your heart desires. Nice little tavern & restaurant to stop at for a pizza & cold beer after a productive day. I'd definitely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone looking to visit the grand canyon. Sure, there's other hotels along the rim with better views, but for the price, this place was great.

This was not what I expected of a National Park lodge. I had to wait 45 minutes for a room to be ready past the checkin time. The carpet had animal hair balls and had not been vacuumed properly if at all. The bathroom window did not close which let in cold air. The room was very cramped. The ice machine was turned off but was on in other buildings. On the plus side, the linens and bedding were nice. The room price was exorbitant compared to the value and cleanliness.
