My husband and I stopped at the Grand Canyon on our move from California to Texas. Staying inside the park was the best decision. Within walking distance we saw the canyon, lots of walking paths, nature was beautiful. Eateries snd general store were within walking distance from our room, we stayed on the west rooms building 3.The rooms had AC, and more like motel with the door outside but we were happy because our truck was loaded with our things overnight. It's not a fancy hotel but the room was clean, spacious and exactly what we needed. The only downfall was no wi-fi and my signal was poor. Staying in the park was convenient and I'm so happy we stayed here.

Grand Canyon Hotel
This was a decent place to stay at the Grand Canyon. It is not within walking distance to the canyon but it is centrally located and the bus service is free and easy to use. The rooms are clean and basic, like at most national parks. There is a nice grocery store and restaurant that is walkable however. For some reason all the ice machines in the complex were empty on our last day - took a while to find one to use!

Heats up like a tin can in Summer, No A/C
Great location, walking distance to bus, food, post office and groceries. Great parking. Quiet. We stayed the end of July to Aug 1. Our room was not air conditioned and there was only one window to open. The ceiling fan was not adequate. The room was cinder block and it was so HOT. It was cooler outside than inside the room. A/C is a must for summer stays at the Grand Canyon.
There is no WiFi or cell service. You must walk to the restaurant for reception. It worked nicely.
We would stay here agin, just not in a summer month.

Convenient But Out Of The Hustle and Bustle
We were in Yavapai East in the middle of a beautiful forest. Because we were on the second floor we kept the curtains on our picture window open all the time for the view. The hotel is located within walkind distance of a restaurant, take-out, and grocery store, all with good, fairly reasonably priced (for a tourist place) food. We were also close to the bus stop. Our unit had been renovated and had a nice bathroom, comfortable bed, nice carpet and draperies. The El Tovar is a fancier hotel, but there was so much traffic and activity in that area. Even though it was off season there were a lot of people and alot of traffic around the other hotels in the park.

Our room comfortably accommodated us (we slept 5 in the room, 2 double beds and a cot). Hotel was quiet and clean. We ate most of our meals at the Lodge, which was convenient and of reasonable quality (not many food options in the park).
