Stayed at Yavapai West for 4 nights while attending a conference. Rooms were clean and modernized, very quiet at night despite all the rooms in my block being occupied. Access to the on site restaurant was close, only chose to drive at night when dark skies are prevelent (didn't want to bump into a tree or other things that go bump in the… Read more

We stayed for 2 nights, while visiting GCNP. The rooms are clean and have everything that you need. We rented 2 family units, with plenty of space for all. Remember, these are basic rooms at a national park. If you're looking for good wifi and a pool, this is not your place. If you're looking for a great deal in an absolutely amazing place, … Read more

In the main buidling, there are options to have dinner at the restaurant and a taverne. There is also a small take-away and a shop. Our room was okay, not very fancy, but good enough. Same goes for the bathroom. But it was clean, nice, warm and comfortable. Overall, we liked our stay here, so you can be very near to the Grand Canyon. Read less

The Yavapai Lodge offers basic accommodations inside the Grand Canyon National Park. The Yavapai East room is a typical hotel layout with two beds, a chair and lamp. It does provide two luggage racks to keep your suitcases off the floor. The Bathroom is a bit crowded with little counter space for a family of four. The sink is separate from the… Read more
The Yavapai Lodge offers basic accommodations inside the Grand Canyon National Park. The Yavapai East room is a typical hotel layout with two beds, a chair and lamp. It does provide two luggage racks to keep your suitcases off the floor. The Bathroom is a bit crowded with little counter space for a family of four. The sink is separate from the bath and toilet. The room does include a safe. The room did not really have internet access and I was okay with that. The room had an RCA TV (super old) with access to some cable channels but the service was spotty. I was told that they are upgrading the TV and the Cable system. Again I am not particular about this as we are at the Grand Canyon and this is the perfect excuse to disconnect. The Yavapai lodge restaurant was also basic...think high school cafeteria. The Salad bar had limited items and the soup selection was ok with 4 types. We had the soup and salad for dinner one night (you can only have one bowl of soup despite no signage saying otherwise.) I still rate the Yavapai at 4 starts as it met my expectations and was in a great quiet location. Read less

We really enjoyed our stay here, the lodge is central to the park so easy and quick to get to the viewing spots. Just make sure you finish all your work and are ready to switch off before you get there, little to no internet coverage available anywhere in the park.
