This was my third visit to the south rim. Our room at Maswik lodge was pleasant, large and updated. Not a traditional multi storey hotel, there are many low rise buildings which made it unique. The balcony was cozy and comfortable with a pair of Adirondack style chairs and a table. While not at the edge of the canyon, it was a short walk… Read more
This was my third visit to the south rim. Our room at Maswik lodge was pleasant, large and updated. Not a traditional multi storey hotel, there are many low rise buildings which made it unique. The balcony was cozy and comfortable with a pair of Adirondack style chairs and a table. While not at the edge of the canyon, it was a short walk away. The whole park has undergone an initiative to become a designated dark sky preserve. The stargazing from the balcony was phenomenal. We had only wished there was less balcony overhang but it provides sun protection. I loved that they adopting eco friendly practices like recycling (even a little bin to recycle kcup pods) and large dispensers of shampoo, conditioner and soaps. The main building had a food court which had pretty reasonable prices. Read less

Warm check-in welcome. Regular hotel room. A little dark but doesn't really matter as it is quite spacious and direct outdoor access. Surrounded with trees and wildlife. It is well located close to the red shuttle route and the bright angel trail - and has its own blue shuttle stop. The hotel also hosts a great gift shop and the only food court at… Read more

We stayed here as part of our Grand Canyon Railroad package, and found the stay quite satisfactory. The check-in staff were friendly and accommodating. When we discovered our initial room assignment was quite a distance away from the lobby, the front-desk staff readily reassigned us to a more limited mobility friendly location (also moving our luggage while we were on a sunset tour). The room was a bit dated, but clean and comfortable (more than adequate for what little time one spends in the room anyway). The food court provides a nice variety of eating options (we enjoyed an offering from the Pizza Pub). The complimentary flashlights from the front desk were greatly appreciated; though the night skies can be beautiful, they provide little to no illumination for walking between buildings. The hotel lobby building is on the shuttle system route, which then offers easy access to the rest of the south rim. Certainly lodging right on the rim has its advantages; but as those options are often scarcer to secure, this facility is certainly satisfactory. Read less

The best thing about this motel is the location; within a few minutes on foot you experience one of the most spectacular views of the canyon. The people that work there are helpful in planning tours and are passionate about the park. Services are limited and can be descibed as indoor camping. If you know that going it you will enjoy.

We stayed at Maswik for 2 nights while visiting the Grand Canyon. Great location - just a short walk to the trail head. Friendly staff. The room was very run down and my sheets were stained.

We stayed at Maswik for 2 nights while visiting the Grand Canyon. Great location - just a short walk to the trail head. Friendly staff. The room was very run down and my sheets were stained. They had been laundered- the stains were old - but come on! Bleach or replace. The cold/hot water situation in the shower was a mess. After adjusting to a comfortable temperature everything would be fine for about 2 minutes - then it would go freezing or scalding with no warning. We wanted to spend our short time enjoying the canyon not dealing with management and fixers, so we made the best of it. I would NOT stay there again. Read less
