We had to call Maintenance several times. The Air Conditioning & Heating could not be adjusted. The A/C blew at full blast during late September when it wasn't needed, making the room extremely cold. The toilet needed to be fixed, the sink wouldn't drain.

I was afraid this hotel's location would make our stay in GCNP difficult. I thought we had to stay right at the rim. As it is, the location is actually better than staying in the Village, in that it's halfway between the visitor center/bike rental shop and the Village/Bright Angel Trailhead. Also only a 15 minute drive to Tusayan for meals… Read more
I was afraid this hotel's location would make our stay in GCNP difficult. I thought we had to stay right at the rim. As it is, the location is actually better than staying in the Village, in that it's halfway between the visitor center/bike rental shop and the Village/Bright Angel Trailhead. Also only a 15 minute drive to Tusayan for meals (limited food options in the park). Nice little coffee stand with tasty breakfast burritos first thing in the morning. Room has been renovated recently so everything is clean and in working order. Nice vintage photos of the park on the walls. Don't expect luxury -- this is a basic National Park lodge. It's all about location. Read less

We were very pleasantly surprised by this lodge. Although not on the rim, it is very quiet and secluded (deer were blocking our door when we pulled in). The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom is definitely older and very basic. But overall, a clean and quiet stay. We walked to the general store for pre-made sandwiches/salads when the… Read more

The bathroom is definitely older and very basic. But overall, a clean and quiet stay. We walked to the general store for pre-made sandwiches/salads when the line at the Tavern was too long. We had easy access to the visitor's center and to all of the bus lines. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would easily make this our first choice the next time we visit. Read less

You have easy access to all three free bus lines to view the canyon. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant located on the ground but seating and food choices are limited due to COVID-19. It is pet friendly and also has a supermarket to buy grocery. All in all a wonderful stay for friends and family. Read less

The Yavapai Lodge is an older lodge in Grand Canyon but has been nicely updated. Its not fancy but the beds are comfortable, rooms are quiet and its close to the shuttle stop and Yavapai Tavern. Bath & Body Works products are a nice touch. This was a perfect moderately priced hotel in a good location and the Elk in the parking lot were fun to… Read more
