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).

Best Service Ever
The location inside the park was perfect and the staff was so helpful and answered my many questions about the Grand Canyon. The rooms were clean and the cost was family friendly. The views from outside the windows were amazing and location close to everything.

Accommodations here at yavapai Lodge were perfect the beds were comfortable and the family suite made it perfect for us it was very close to everything that we needed while we stayed and it was great to open up the windows the next morning and see snow in March .the only bad thing is that we barely had any Wi-Fi and we couldn't use our cell phones on cricket cell phone service very sporadic Wi-Fi but then again that's why we are here in the mountains to get away from all electronics

Nice but chilly
The huge room at Yavapai Lodge West was a pleasant surprise but nothing I did to the thermostat seemed to turn the heat up on the very chilly March mornings in the GC.
I enjoyed the fancy, cute coffee bar very much and the charging outlets were wonderful but there's no cell phone reception or wifi so my devices weren't in use much.
I'm in my 70s so the walk to the Lodge was inconvenient.
The room itself is very nice and the beds comfortable. There isn't enough hot water to take a bath but conserving water is important at the GC so probably shouldn't be using the bathtub anyway. I had hoped to warm up in the tub but the water was tepid.
So bundle up in winter and enjoy the Lodge. I did. A good effort was made to make the rooms cute and comfy and I was happy to spend a few days there. The National Parks are a treasure!
