All the one story buildings are totally renovated this year and have a/c. Originally we wanted to stay at lodges on the rim. So glad we chose Yavapai! The rim is so congested and crazy busy with way too many people. Yavapai Lodge buildings are hidden in the woods. So relaxing and beautiful. A short walk to rim. There were elk outside our… Read more
All the one story buildings are totally renovated this year and have a/c. Originally we wanted to stay at lodges on the rim. So glad we chose Yavapai! The rim is so congested and crazy busy with way too many people. Yavapai Lodge buildings are hidden in the woods. So relaxing and beautiful. A short walk to rim. There were elk outside our lodge room everyday. The walking path to rim right there too. Super clean also!!!! Will only stay here!!! The two story room buildings are NOT renovated. So stay in the one story buildings. Read less

Yavapai is my choice when I visit the Grand Canyon. While it isn't on the South Rim, it is less expensive and only a short drive to the rim. Easy walk over to the Market Place for food, drinks and souvenirs. West side is a little older, but the room was very clean and in good shape. No wifi in the rooms, but you can connect in the lobby.… Read more

Unfortunately no coffee machine in the room, but the front desk will give you a ticket for free coffee at the Market Place. Good value on the South Rim. Restaurant is currently closed. Read less

We stayed here for two nights. Location is great because it is inside Grand Canyon national park. They had a grocery store and a couple of food places onsite which is a plus. Price was cheaper considering it is inside the park. The rooms overall were not super clean. We found an old t shirt behind the chair. The bathroom looked super old and run… Read more
We stayed here for two nights. Location is great because it is inside Grand Canyon national park. They had a grocery store and a couple of food places onsite which is a plus. Price was cheaper considering it is inside the park. The rooms overall were not super clean. We found an old t shirt behind the chair. The bathroom looked super old and run down. The toilet seat looked as if it was painted. There was a small refrigerator and that’s it. No microwave which was a super bummer. No coffee maker I’m guessing due to covid? They did give you coffee vouchers to use but have to wait in a very long line and the coffee was awful ! There was a clothes steamer and hairdryer which didn’t make sense if they took other amenities out due to Covid. Pillows were not super comfortable but I don’t ever expect much staying somewhere. Overall it was an average stay and I probably would not recommend staying more than a couple days. Read less

I was thrilled to be able to get a reservation at the Yavapai Lodge inside the Grand Canyon South Rim. I like that it was the older motel style - single story, park right in front of your room door. The room was updated and very nice, extremely quiet and comfortable, and very clean. I stayed two nights, it was great being so close to the… Read more

The room was updated and very nice, extremely quiet and comfortable, and very clean. I stayed two nights, it was great being so close to the trails. The only disadvantage was that most of the restaurants were closed so good food in the park was hard to fine. I would stay here again. Read less

Great customer service, clean room, perfect location! The front desk employee greeted us with a friendly hello and gave us a map of the park and showed us what restaurants were open without us even asking. Our room was clean and we had more than enough towels and pillows. The soaps and hair products were eucalyptus stress relief, which was a very… Read more
Great customer service, clean room, perfect location! The front desk employee greeted us with a friendly hello and gave us a map of the park and showed us what restaurants were open without us even asking. Our room was clean and we had more than enough towels and pillows. The soaps and hair products were eucalyptus stress relief, which was a very nice touch. There was an ice machine a few doors down from us that worked great. There was no microwave in the room, but we read that in a review ahead of time and brought our own instapot for heating up meals. There was a fridge in the room. Another nice thing about Yavapai Lodge was a paved path all the way to Mather Lookout which was very convenient for sunrise and sunset strolls. We will absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Grand Canyon National Park. We loved our experience at Yavapai Lodge! Read less
