Very pleased. No elevators but staff is willing to assist when you request it. Managers very attentive. Close to market and trolley stop. Short distance to yavapai geology museum and the best sunrise spot in the park.

Don’t let the outside fool you!

I thought we were in for it when I pulled up to our unit. The outside looked old and dated but we were pleasantly surprised when we opened the door. The room was spacious and clean with more than enough room for the two of us. The lack of A/C was a nonissue. We were there in early May and opened the windows for 30 min and the room was cool (seems there is always a breeze on the Rim). The restaurant/tavern was great and we picked up some supplies for the rest of our trip at the grocery store/ market that is on site as well. I would definitely stay here again!!!!

Ripped Off

My husband and I stayed at the Grand Canyon Yavapai Lodge on May 16-19, 2019. We have stayed at the Grand Canyon and love the place so much, but this Lodge has got to go. Delaware North, the concessionaire responsible for operations, has failed miserably: 1. You sign in and can sign off for no housekeeping because they don't have the workers, yet you still pay for it; 2. I wouldn't sign, but one day we got no service and all days our coffee and mugs plus towels were never serviced. 3. The blanket on the bed was dirty. If the hotel is shorthanded, perhaps there are good reasons. Then Delaware North needs to lower the price and tell visitors they won't get certain services. That would be honest. Do NOT go there! Go instead to the Xanterra hotels: El Tovar, Thunderbird, Bright Angel. They aren't great, but you'll be in the park and won't be ripped off.Another suggestion is to stay right outside the park where there are several options that look nice.

The second I pulled into the lot, I knew this was not the place I was thinking it would be. Not impressed, overpriced by about double! I would stay at any of the spots in the town prior to getting to the canyon, or spend the extra money and get an upgrade.

Staying over night at the Grand Canyon

Finding the Lodge was easy. Close to the General store, post office, etc. Room was nice and clean with refrigerator. Soaps very relaxing after the stress of finding our lodge room. No wifi. We even had an external wifi and it had difficulty working. No street lights that is why finding our room was difficult. Also no ice machine in the lodge room. We stayed over night so it was OK. Close to the rim with a short ride up to El Tovar Lodge. Sorry we drove in a thunderstorm and it was raining at the time of our visit. I was glad I had the room. The restaurant is under construction but we ate at the Blue Angel restaurant and it was perfect after our sunrise view.
