The hotel

The historic lodges of the American West are evoked in this friendly hotel's construction. The area's only indoor pool and whirlpool is here, and the rooms blend rustic charm with state-of-the-art amenities. The restaurant features a twice-nightly Western feasts dinner with live entertainment. At the bar you can sit in an actual saddle - yeehaw! The brilliant IMAX® cinema, featuring the Grand Canyon, Hidden Secrets show, is just down the road.

Reserved a room for 5 (2 adults and 3 kids) and was given a room smaller than I have had in London or Paris. I thought it was a mistake, it wasn’t... There were not enough towels or the cot in the room. Once the cot was placed in the room there was less that 1’ of space between the bottom of the bed and the cot.

Reserved a room for 5 (2 adults and 3 kids) and was given a room smaller than I have had in London or Paris. I thought it was a mistake, it wasn’t... There were not enough towels or the cot in the room. Once the cot was placed in the room there was less that 1’ of space between the bottom of the bed and the cot. At $400 per night this was a joke. I don’t even know how this meets fire code. Major disappointment, if you are a family I recommend you go elsewhere. Read less

The style of the hotel, especially the Lobby made you feel like you were visiting a big hunting lodge. Our 11 year old grandson loved the huge fireplace and seating area around it. The pool was very clean with a nice hot tub. Rooms were beautifully appointed with comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. Nice buffet breakfast with lots of choices.… Read more

The Saloon was a fun place for a drink and snack. We will happily return next year! Read less

This is perhaps the nicest hotel outside of the Grand Canyon (1 mile outside of the south gate) Warm Lobby with large fireplace, comfortable seating, coffee in the morning and cookies in the afternoon. Very helpful front desk staff. Our room was 237 which was had 2 queens. Spacious, clean and comfortable. The room had a Keurig coffeemaker,… Read more
This is perhaps the nicest hotel outside of the Grand Canyon (1 mile outside of the south gate) Warm Lobby with large fireplace, comfortable seating, coffee in the morning and cookies in the afternoon. Very helpful front desk staff. Our room was 237 which was had 2 queens. Spacious, clean and comfortable. The room had a Keurig coffeemaker, microwave and small refrigerator. Water also provided in the room. Lots of cable channels to choose from if you have kids. Good sized bathroom with lots of towels. Eco conscious room. Our room had a furnished balcony that faced out to the back of the hotel with a view of trees and a hillside. The hotel pool was indoors and there was a separate Jacuzzi. Kids spent a lot of time there as it was open until 10 pm and was perfect after half a day in the car or after a day at the canyon. The purple free shuttle to the Canyon Visitor Center stops outside of the hotel on the street but you will need to get a park pass from the IMAX theater site one block away to show the driver ($35 for a weekly pass). There is a gift shop, restaurant with nightly entertainment and a separate bar in the hotel as well. Lots of fast food and other restaurants up the street as well. More food options and shops in the town of Williams (50 miles away) but would highly recommend this place for anyone traveling to the Canyon. Read less

We were literally a 5 min drive to the entrance to the Canyon. Nice clean rooms, nice big soaker tub in the room. Staff were friendly. We had breakfast buffet there- was actually better than we expected. Did not eat dinner there b/c of the bad reviews. Overall, a really nice hotel and nice clean rooms. Would stay there again.
