I was thrilled to be able to get a reservation at the Yavapai Lodge inside the Grand Canyon South Rim. I like that it was the older motel style - single story, park right in front of your room door. The room was updated and very nice, extremely quiet and comfortable, and very clean. I stayed two nights, it was great being so close to the trails. The only disadvantage was that most of the restaurants were closed so good food in the park was hard to fine. I would stay here again.

Great customer service, clean room, perfect location! The front desk employee greeted us with a friendly hello and gave us a map of the park and showed us what restaurants were open without us even asking. Our room was clean and we had more than enough towels and pillows. The soaps and hair products were eucalyptus stress relief, which was a very nice touch. There was an ice machine a few doors down from us that worked great. There was no microwave in the room, but we read that in a review ahead of time and brought our own instapot for heating up meals. There was a fridge in the room. Another nice thing about Yavapai Lodge was a paved path all the way to Mather Lookout which was very convenient for sunrise and sunset strolls. We will absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Grand Canyon National Park. We loved our experience at Yavapai Lodge!

Dog Friendly National Park Lodge

National Parks tend to NOT be so dog friendly but the Yavapai Lodge and The Grand Canyon offer some great options. The Yavapai Lodge was great and the staff was super friendly. We stayed in Yavapai West which from my knowledge is the newly renovated rooms and you can tell. The room was great and extremely dog friendly. The location has paved trails (dog must stay on paved trails) and is about 1/2 mile from the main visitors center. Our room was also about 1/2 from the market / deli. It was super nice to walk the dogs around the south rim in the mornings then rest mid day. (it was hot and the rim got extremely packed during the day) Then go back out for the sunset. Overall this place was great and we are already planning a trip back for winter.

VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE BEDS/PILLOWS

This lodge is in a convenient location. The lobby area was very clean. We stayed here mainly because I had my dog with us. The main area with the beds was more updated-plank flooring (likely vinyl or engineered), large flat screen TV, mini fridge. They provide the water/food bowl for your pets, which was also nice. The bathroom was very clean also (they give you Bath & Body Works shampoos/soap/lotion/shower gel). The flooring in the bathroom was outdated, but it was certainly nothing that affected our comfort. We loved staying right in the park, and it was nice seeing so many stars since this is a designated Dark Sky area. One thing to keep in mind. There is no Wi-Fi in this lodge. You have to go outside the lodge closer to the main lobby/market area for service.

It is in dire need of upgrades. It is convenient to the north rim, being inside the park. We were here mid August 2020, during Covid-19 and were able to book a room the day before. If you are staying at the Grand Canyon more than 1-night, I’d recommend staying at a hotel just outside the park. I usually don’t mind paying a little more for convenience, but this time it wasn’t worth it! My husband and I were disappointed with our stay here.
