Handy lodge for visiting the Grand Canyon
Stayed here for three nights when visiting the Grand Canyon. It's in the National Park but away from the Village, (half a mile) which is busier. Great location for us. There is a restaurant nearby, albeit a bit basic but another eating place ( The Tavern), which has more on offer. There is a store/supermarket which sells a lot of stuff as well. Great little coffee place too. Handy for the visitor centre and the drive to Desert View. Would recommend due to location. Room was a bit basic but perfectly serviceable and comfortable. Staff very friendly.

Comfortable lodging with a great location
We stayed here during a group tour of Canyon lands in the US. It was the ideal location and a short walk to the South Rim to view at sunset. We took the path behind the ranger station and encountered Elk about 2 minutes into our walk. Its pretty much no frills but the bed was comfortable and the shower was nice and hot. No AC but there was a ceiling fan and it cools down nicely at night.

We were in the east side rooms , after an easy check we drove around to our block where our room was to see Deer a few feet away.
We stayed three nights so had two full days to get out and see the canyon from its various aspects, the buses are essential if your going to make full use of your time.
Binoculars and a decent memory card for your phone are essential so is water as with th3 altitude it’s easy to suffer from dehydration.

It’s in the park
We stayed here as we wanted to be in the park.. unfortunately there was no more accommodation in the Grand Canyon Village, which really is the area to be. Yavapai is probably a couple minutes by car. There is a shuttle as well. There are two sets of accommodation East and West. The East have air condtioning, and is closer to the actual reception building, which is down and across the road at an area called Market Place. Reception on checking in was very mechanical .. her is your room key, here is the instructions .. had to ask for more info. The buildings are in 2 storey blocks .. would have been nice if they at least told us we were on level 2 .. no elevators and 3 heavy bags. Room was adequate. We were misinformed about the shuttle. Told to pick it up outside reception, but we found the bus stop right outside the accommodation that took us directly to the village, if we had picked up where suggested, we would have had to go the other way for a bit before it turned around then pass the bus stop which we should have taken.

Great place to stay!
We were fortunate to be able to stay in the park at Yavapai Lodge. The room was large and comfortable, very solid and well done. There are 2 sections of the lodging; one with a/c and one without a/c. Choose carefully if you visit in the summer time!
Also, the food at Yavapai Lodge is great! Huge portions of good home cooking. You won't leave hungry! ☺
