We stayed in a Pioneer Cabin. There were two of us. I had asked ahead of time if there would be ceiling fans in both rooms and Forever Resorts said "yes." This was incorrect. We were there when it was around 90 degrees and roasted. There is no A/C which I understand since it is not normally that hot there. So fans were crucial. There was no room… Read more
We stayed in a Pioneer Cabin. There were two of us. I had asked ahead of time if there would be ceiling fans in both rooms and Forever Resorts said "yes." This was incorrect. We were there when it was around 90 degrees and roasted. There is no A/C which I understand since it is not normally that hot there. So fans were crucial. There was no room cleaning but you could get more towels or your trash taken out if you called and asked. They have also removed the coffee pots although their website said there was a coffee pot in the room. You could attempt to get coffee in the lobby of the lodge but most of the time they were out. Then you'd trek over to the Deli and stand in line for coffee. Food options were bleak. The Lodge Dining room was open only for dinner. And unless you had a reservation you were going to be eating at 9 PM. The Deli was the only option for breakfast and lunch. There weren't many healthy options and much of the food was pre-packaged elsewhere and trucked in. Pizza was very popular but the pizza oven broke down for a day. Our room had many dead bugs in the windowsills and the shower was moldy. The prices sure seemed high enough that they could afford to hire a few more people and pay them enough to incent them to be there. We enjoyed our visit but won't come back given the poor accommodations and lack of good food options. Read less

Where to start? We arrived at night in a thunder and lightning storm. I’m on east coast time so I’m up and wide awake at 0430 hrs. I sneak out of the cabin and the Lodge is open, only staff moving around. I sit alone at the big window looking out at the canyon. No one else up?!? From behind me I hear “would you like a cup of coffee?” Moments… Read more

I sneak out of the cabin and the Lodge is open, only staff moving around. I sit alone at the big window looking out at the canyon. No one else up?!? From behind me I hear “would you like a cup of coffee?” Moments later, I’m enjoying a fresh cup of coffee, sun coming up at the North Rim of our Grand Canyon. Thank you “Rose” for the best cup of coffee ever. Read less

This was our first time here and we loved the place. We stayed in a pioneer cabin #36 and it has more than enough room for the four of us. The cabins are old and the bathroom is small but that adds to the charm. The cabin had two entrances and to me it seemed as if long ago the pioneer cabins were rented out as two separate cabins.

This was our first time here and we loved the place. We stayed in a pioneer cabin #36 and it has more than enough room for the four of us. The cabins are old and the bathroom is small but that adds to the charm. The cabin had two entrances and to me it seemed as if long ago the pioneer cabins were rented out as two separate cabins. I guess people in the old days were okay with sharing a bathroom. The windows are old and some don’t close all the way so you can’t lock them. But even when locked someone could easily get in. Good thing people don’t come to the Grand Canyon lodge to break into people’s cabins. Be prepared for a long walk to unload your stuff especially if you arrive and can’t get a close parking spot. They did have a few 15 minute spots closer to the cabins to load and unload but if those are filled be prepared to a few long hikes back and forth to your car. Like everyone else mentions the location is superb and we would definitely go back. We did bring our own breakfast items so we didn’t have to try and find breakfast here. We did eat at the deli once and the food was fine. Make sure to make reservations early if you want to eat at the restaurant. We are there both nights. Read less

We stayed in a rim view pioneer cabin (#18). We were super excited to stay right in the park. The cabin was the perfect size for our family of five and our kids enjoyed the bunk beds.

We stayed in a rim view pioneer cabin (#18). We were super excited to stay right in the park. The cabin was the perfect size for our family of five and our kids enjoyed the bunk beds. We were surprised to find mouse droppings in the cabin on the sheets and table. Being from the country we just passed it off as being outdoors. That was until that nigh. Oh my… we had a small mouse visitor starting about midnight in our bedroom trash can and running around the room. You could hear it’s making sounds and moving in the trash can inside the cabin. Finally I got my cell phone and turned on the flash light to see a tiny mouse moving around on our bags. The next morning we found mouse traps under the beds, so the lodge knew there was a mouse problem in that cabin. No one should rent a cabin with mouse droppings on the sheets and tables. When we checked out the next day, the staff didn’t even ask us if we enjoyed our stay. Just do you want an emailed or printed receipt. When we told the staff about the mouse, it didn’t seem as a surprise and we received “oh we will let maintenance know.” No apology or anything. I have to give the place a three because our kids loved it and despite the mouse we made great memories. You can’t get closer to the Grand Canyon. But something has to be done about the mouse in that cabin. Read less

Some online information is wrong for the North Rim this summer, as the park and lodge reopen. Big things: 1. There is nowhere for a good breakfast. Rooms have a mini-fridge but this summer NO COFFEE MAKERS. FREE COFFEE IN THE LOBBY OF THE LODGE. The deli is open, limited, and not great breakfasts, nearby options are few. BRING YOUR OWN BREAKFAST… Read more
Some online information is wrong for the North Rim this summer, as the park and lodge reopen. Big things: 1. There is nowhere for a good breakfast. Rooms have a mini-fridge but this summer NO COFFEE MAKERS. FREE COFFEE IN THE LOBBY OF THE LODGE. The deli is open, limited, and not great breakfasts, nearby options are few. BRING YOUR OWN BREAKFAST MAKINGS AND BRING YOUR OWN SNACKS. 2. The lodge is not serving lunch, deli lines get very long. Buy early, or bring your own makings for a picnic on the patio overlooking the canyon. 3. The lodge is open for dinner, and there are huge windows overlooking the canyon. BOOK AS FAR AHEAD AS YOU CAN. BOOKING IS BY EMAIL ONLY, THEY WRITE BACK. MANY FOLKS HAVE GOTTEN HERE WITHOUT RESERVATIONS AND HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO EAT IN THE LODGE. We have been here for a week and had dinner 4 times. 4. THE LODGE IS DOING TAKE OUT DINNERS, NOT PUBLICIZING IT MUCH. 5. BRING YOUR OWN PILLOWS AND AN EXTRA BLANKET FOR EACH BED. 6. THE PIONEER CABINS ARE TIGHT AND DO NOT HAVE A PORCH. 6 IS CROWDED; 2 WILL SLEEP ON AN UNCOMFORTABLE FUTON. FRONTIER CABINS HAVE A NICE PORCH WITH 2 ROCKING CHAIRS. CLOSER TO THE LODGE AND RESTAURANT. ALL CABINS ARE RUSTIC. DAILY CLEANING NOT AVAILABLE, ASK FOR CLEAN TOWELS. 7. COME PREPARED for the conditions this year and you will be glad to you are here. Summer weather can be quite hot and then quite cold, rain is always possible. Enjoy one of the most beautiful places in the world, and a great national lodge and park. Read less
