My husband and I stayed at the Grand Canyon Yavapai Lodge on May 16-19, 2019. We have stayed at the Grand Canyon and love the place so much, but this Lodge has got to go. Delaware North, the concessionaire responsible for operations, has failed miserably: 1. You sign in and can sign off for no housekeeping because they don't have the workers,… Read more
My husband and I stayed at the Grand Canyon Yavapai Lodge on May 16-19, 2019. We have stayed at the Grand Canyon and love the place so much, but this Lodge has got to go. Delaware North, the concessionaire responsible for operations, has failed miserably: 1. You sign in and can sign off for no housekeeping because they don't have the workers, yet you still pay for it; 2. I wouldn't sign, but one day we got no service and all days our coffee and mugs plus towels were never serviced. 3. The blanket on the bed was dirty. If the hotel is shorthanded, perhaps there are good reasons. Then Delaware North needs to lower the price and tell visitors they won't get certain services. That would be honest. Do NOT go there! Go instead to the Xanterra hotels: El Tovar, Thunderbird, Bright Angel. They aren't great, but you'll be in the park and won't be ripped off.Another suggestion is to stay right outside the park where there are several options that look nice. Read less

The second I pulled into the lot, I knew this was not the place I was thinking it would be. Not impressed, overpriced by about double! I would stay at any of the spots in the town prior to getting to the canyon, or spend the extra money and get an upgrade.

Finding the Lodge was easy. Close to the General store, post office, etc. Room was nice and clean with refrigerator. Soaps very relaxing after the stress of finding our lodge room. No wifi. We even had an external wifi and it had difficulty working. No street lights that is why finding our room was difficult. Also no ice machine in the lodge… Read more
Finding the Lodge was easy. Close to the General store, post office, etc. Room was nice and clean with refrigerator. Soaps very relaxing after the stress of finding our lodge room. No wifi. We even had an external wifi and it had difficulty working. No street lights that is why finding our room was difficult. Also no ice machine in the lodge room. We stayed over night so it was OK. Close to the rim with a short ride up to El Tovar Lodge. Sorry we drove in a thunderstorm and it was raining at the time of our visit. I was glad I had the room. The restaurant is under construction but we ate at the Blue Angel restaurant and it was perfect after our sunrise view. Read less

We stayed in the hotel style side (east), great comfy rooms, a bit basic bathroom but everything there we needed. Fridge, coffee machine etc. Walking distance to the tavern and restaurant and shop. Good facilities- nothing fancy but good food. WiFi only at lodge. Bus system really good. Great location, not on the canyon edge itself but I think… Read more
We stayed in the hotel style side (east), great comfy rooms, a bit basic bathroom but everything there we needed. Fridge, coffee machine etc. Walking distance to the tavern and restaurant and shop. Good facilities- nothing fancy but good food. WiFi only at lodge. Bus system really good. Great location, not on the canyon edge itself but I think you have to book those way way in advance. Thought it was a little cheeky to ask us on check in form not to have our room made up everyday on the pretext of the environment. I get cleàn bedding/towels have an impact but making a bed and emptying bins do not when the teams are going room to room anyway. Read less

Booked a room and received confirmation. Upon arriving was told reservations were made by THEIR offsite reservation center and not valid. AFTER RECEIVING A CONFIRMATION! The desk personnel assured me this was not a problem as my credit card would not be charged. I explained that this was a problem, we had been hiking all day and were drop dead exhausted. The condescending agent replied, “let me explain in a way you will understand, you’re not being charged “. We were sent outside the National Park, to an awful room overlooking a dumpster. Was then contacted for feedback, I gave it, and nothing. STAY AWAY Read less
