This is a lodge inside Grand Canyon National Park which sets it apart from other places to stay, but it is definitely more motel than lodge.

This is a lodge inside Grand Canyon National Park which sets it apart from other places to stay, but it is definitely more motel than lodge. Very plain and simple, the room was a comfortable size, but really on the pricey side for an accommodation like this- you are basically paying for the location. It is set in the pines which are gorgeous, but there are NO benches or picnic tables in the entire outdoor area of the lodge- no place to socialize or enjoy the evening except in your room. If we were to stay here again, we would definitely bring camp chairs to sit outside. I would likely stay in the town that was 7 miles up the road next time which also offers easy access to the park and shuttle system. Read less

The lodge is located in the heart of the Grand Canyon village. It’s a motel walk-up style with tremendous proximity to the best hiking paths in the park (Rim trail, Bright Angel, Kaibab). We were grateful for the refrigerator to keep our water and fresh fruit cold. The rooms were VERY basic and dark with cinder block walls and tiny dark bathrooms… Read more
The lodge is located in the heart of the Grand Canyon village. It’s a motel walk-up style with tremendous proximity to the best hiking paths in the park (Rim trail, Bright Angel, Kaibab). We were grateful for the refrigerator to keep our water and fresh fruit cold. The rooms were VERY basic and dark with cinder block walls and tiny dark bathrooms with no countertop space. Because it's located in a National Park we weren't expecting anything special but we're happy with working a/c, tv, slow wi-fi, and a comfortable bed. Nothing luxurious or fancy but it suited our needs for a two-night hiking trip. Read less

Let's be honest, if you're going to the grand canyon you're not going there to stay at a swanky hotel. This being said, the Yavapai Lodge has great amenities - I would say that it is comparable to a regular hotel in terms of amenities however, something which truly blew me away was the friendliness and willingness to go the extra mile of the staff. Every single person I talked to was able to answer my questions and Natalie C. at the front desk went incredibly above and beyond her duties to make sure that my stay was as good as it could be. It's true that approaching people with kindness, openness and no expectation will often yield better results than any other way but that aside, Natalie truly made a difference. As someone who'd never been to the Grand Canyon before she made my stay incredibly special. If you get to read this, thank you Natalie - I really appreciated your kindness and it stuck with me! ;). All in all, there's so much to see in terms of beauty around there, not just scenic but there's an ambience to be felt when you're around people who are surrounded by beauty of such magnitude. And, if you need a few creature comforts I will say that the brewery/restaurant is also pretty great! Highly recommend! :) Read less

Although the rooms are not fancy, they are practical and clean. The products in the bathroom are from Bath & Body Works which was a nice touch. The air conditioner worked well and the bed was comfortable.

Although the rooms are not fancy, they are practical and clean. The products in the bathroom are from Bath & Body Works which was a nice touch. The air conditioner worked well and the bed was comfortable. This place was in a perfect location due to its accessibility to a general store with groceries, beer and wine, and hiking equipment as well as a post office and the restaurant at the Yavapai registration building was very good too. We bought postcards at the general store to mail out to family and they arrived with the Grand Canyon postmark within a few days. Overall, its was a good experience and would stay there again.

Awesome Place and worth every penny (well priced for the location). Everything was awesome about this place amenities, location, staff and cleanliness. Maybe the best part of all was Jamila at the front desk on our way out, she put an awesome final touch on our impression of the place. Thank you Yavapai Lodge!
