When I read reviews to stay in the park, they are correct. Staying in the park saves you a lot of time. Now my review is around covid-19 period so many places were limited or crowded because of limited capacity. I wanted a room for pets and this is why I picked this hotel. It is perfect location for trails that take dogs. You can do the upper… Read more

Now my review is around covid-19 period so many places were limited or crowded because of limited capacity. I wanted a room for pets and this is why I picked this hotel. It is perfect location for trails that take dogs. You can do the upper rim hike with dogs and around the park too. Perfect location for owners with dogs. Rooms are nice and new. Definitely would come back with my dog and son again. Read less

Yavapai Lodge is in a great location inside the Grand Canyon park near the South Rim. However, the lodge buildings and rooms are very old. Remindful of old remote highway motels. The rooms are sparse in basic amenities - no coffee maker or hair dryer. The rooms were clean. Expensive for the type of room, but location may be worth the price.

I started getting concerned after looking at recent reviews, but I have nothing but good things to say. Quick and friendly check in, asked for extra blankets, delivered in about 10 minutes.

I started getting concerned after looking at recent reviews, but I have nothing but good things to say. Quick and friendly check in, asked for extra blankets, delivered in about 10 minutes. Asked for extra towels another day, came in less than 10 minutes. We stayed in the recently renovated west units. It was quiet, and dark at night. Did some star gazing with a phone app in the parking lot, good fun. Short walk or drive to the lodge, restaurant, general store area. Restaurant staff very friendly, food decent, service quick despite no indoor seating. Only poor attitudes we ran in to were in the coffee shop. Everyone else was terrific. Great access to the eastern end. Less chaos than central town. Only down side is there is no room view of the canyon, but your rim side in less than a 5 minute drive. Parking on that end was not an issue. More crowded on weekends, but still not uncomfortable. Read less

Could only give this property Only a 3 out of 5 due to the fact that the pictures online do not match the room we were given. Our room was on the edge of being semi mid century modern, but was lacking so many detail in order to call it a mid century modern room. The bathroom was terrible. Dirty, painted over so many times, and it just needed… Read more
Could only give this property Only a 3 out of 5 due to the fact that the pictures online do not match the room we were given. Our room was on the edge of being semi mid century modern, but was lacking so many detail in order to call it a mid century modern room. The bathroom was terrible. Dirty, painted over so many times, and it just needed some love. We did however love the fact that this hotel was away from the chaos of the rest of the hotels. There were so many people everywhere that it was so nice to get away. This would have let me give a 5 out of 5 for this very reason, but just couldn't do it. The Tavern attached was horrible - STAY AWAY! I am not sure what diners do while staying in the Grand Canyon, but the Tavern was not the option we should have made. Plenty of parking onsite, which was great, and the reception staff on the day of check-in were super nice & helpful. Read less

Loved this room! Things were very clean and the bedding was unbelievably comfortable! A very pleasant surprise - Bath and Body Works stress relief lotion, body soap, shampoo and conditioner provided in the bathroom. There are windows that you can open if you want the fresh air! Fridge in the room and the faucet water is safe to fill up water bottles or water bladders for hiking! Each room is ground level with your own entrance. Walking distance to lodge restaurant, deli, grocery store and shuttles. Lights are yellow at each door with no other lights so you can pull chairs out on porch area and watch the amazing Grand Canyon dark skies. We saw a falling star, just beautiful. Definitely will stay here again! Read less
