Average property but it served us well!

Since we were traveling with our pet, our room was located in Yavapai West. No complaints there - our room was dated but clean and well-equipped, somewhat secluded (which was great due to the holiday crowd), and very convenient to walks to the Rim, etc. Although we didn't use them, it was great to see a huge kennel in our room with the usual pet amenities (water/food bowls, plastic mat, treats, waste bags outside). Only things we would've liked was to have a microwave oven in the room so we'd have options to heat up items from the restaurant or the general store, a stable internet connection, and ability to take the dog around the hotel's property (obviously, not the food areas). The front desk said our dog was fine at registration but not allowed elsewhere in the main lodge. Oh well. Still, it's a great place to stay!

I was along for the ride and wasn't expecting much after reading the reviews. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised to find the lobby to be welcoming. The Yavapai Lodge is located across the parking lot from the General Store so that is a huge plus. Once you are checked in you drive around to your room. I found our room to be clean and somewhat modern, maybe we had one of the recently remodeled rooms. The bathroom is pretty basic. What I cared about most was cleanliness and a good nights sleep and Yavapai Lodge checked the boxes. The small cafe that serves coffee and to go items is a great place to grab quick items. If you are looking to sit down the breakfast food in the restaurant looked tasty and reasonably priced.

Great price

Cheapest hotel on-site. Upon checking in, I was upgraded to the newer rooms, so that was really nice. The only downside is that there is no wifi in the room. I was fine with it, but if your group is addicted to the internet, they would have to drive out to the lobby and sit there. It was hilarious to see so many people in the hotel lobby in the evening using their phones!

The lodge was really nice, much better (luxury) than I expected - need a car to access as was a little off the reception and the restaurant in snow. The receptionist was really helpful and explained to us how to get around. The sunrise point was about 5 mins away by car. I am told gets really busy in summer and better to book in advance.

First time to the lodge. Snowed a ton as we were driving in. Area is beautiful covered in snow. Roads were not so good- especially in park. Didn’t matter much though as the buses that go around the South Rim were very convenient. Stayed in an “East Side” room- the slightly more updated rooms with an inside entry. No elevators to second floor rooms. Weird smell in hallway of building 5 on second floor. Room was comfortable. Linens are adequate, not awesome. TV picture quality is poor. Didn’t matter for us- didn’t watch much. Nice to be able to walk to the South Rim. It was too bad that a lot of the park services were closed due to the shut down; but, luckily didn’t ruin our trip.
