Not a new place, but very clean and a great location within the park. Has every amenity we needed. I loved that it was just a few steps from the very nice buffet style restaurant, which was perfect for getting a good, quick meal (with a lot of variety) before heading out to hike, bike, etc. Staying elsewhere would have meant a bus ride to and from… Read more

No WiFi in room, only WiFi in Lodge - which I was unable to connect to. Lodge has cafeteria style food items - a wide variety, also has pizza and pub area. Check in and check out is easy , decent value for the rate. Read less

We made a last minute reservation for a room with two queen beds in early January. The room had a small refrigerator, coffee machine. Food court/lobby/pizza pub is within walking distance and it had a reasonable selection of menu. During the summer and Christmas/New Year season, same room goes for $200-$300 a night; we stayed during the off-peak… Read more
We made a last minute reservation for a room with two queen beds in early January. The room had a small refrigerator, coffee machine. Food court/lobby/pizza pub is within walking distance and it had a reasonable selection of menu. During the summer and Christmas/New Year season, same room goes for $200-$300 a night; we stayed during the off-peak season so the room went for $150. Reasonable value considering that it is a motel room but in the middle of a very popular national park. The lodge is 8-10 minute walk from the bright angel trailhead/lodge or one can choose to ride a park shuttle. A couple of downsides: (1) We stayed in a two-story building and if you are staying downstairs, you are at the mercy of upstairs neighbor behaving appropriately. We could hear them jump on the bed or round around. I slept through it but it kept my wife awake until midnight.If you are sensitive, you may want to ask for upstairs room or stay in 1-story cabins (I think they had these.) (2) Heater was loud and it is right next to the bed; sometimes it will even blow cold air instead of hot air. Some key highlights: (1) close to the rim (2) decent cafeteria and pizza pub within short walking distance (3) clean room and bath (4) refrigerator (5) coffee/tea packets (6) no general store onsite Read less

We stayed at Maswik and really liked our stay. First of all, the main building had a food court that we really liked. It offered many different options for a reasonable price.

We stayed at Maswik and really liked our stay. First of all, the main building had a food court that we really liked. It offered many different options for a reasonable price. It had a great gift shop. The lodging is separate, and parking wasn't an issue. The room was nice with an updated bathroom. Our only issue was the heat working too well! We finally had to turn it off at night because it either blew really hot air or cold air. It is somewhat off the beaten path within the park, but if you can't get one of the hotels on the rim, it's a good choice. We saw deer roaming around the parking lots, which was fun! Read less

Given a choice, I would have stayed at one of the properties located along the rim of the canyon. However, this was what was included in my package so I was stuck with it. This lodge is far off the rim. No views to be had, you will need to take a (free) village bus to see the actual canyon. There was no heat in the main check in when we arrived.… Read more

This lodge is far off the rim. No views to be had, you will need to take a (free) village bus to see the actual canyon. There was no heat in the main check in when we arrived. After waiting in line, I was told my room was not ready and they would call when it was. I ventured into the "lodge" area, which looks just like your average ski lodge, with several food and beverage options. We wanted to watch a football game so we went to the pizza place within the lodge, which everyone we asked had assured us was "the" place to watch a game. Perhaps this would be true if it were 2002, but 2 small low-def flat screens and one larger flat screen did not make it ideal viewing. We ordered food and chose the least bad spot to watch the game (they would not put the game on all the tvs). Pizza is decent - order a whole pie; by the slice is not good. Wings were hit and miss. The young man behind the counter had a bad attitude. I received a phone call that one (out of three) of our rooms were ready, but since all eight of us wanted to go to the rooms, I told them I would wait. They said they would call as soon as they were ready. An hour later, still no call. After another half hour we went to the freezing front desk again and asked about our rooms. They were ready, so I'm not sure why we didn't get a call. At this point it is nearly 6 pm. We were in a far off building, and had to traverse icy unsalted streets and pathways to get there. The rooms were fine - clean and cozy in a very rustic lodge sort of way. Wifi did not work. Television reception was fuzzy. Rooms are dated and could use updating badly. Having paid nearly $270 per room for one night, I would say this place is definitely not worth the money. While clean, the service is not good and it's definitely not a good value. Read less
