Convenient to the South Rim
Basic accommodation, convenient to the South Rim, comfortable bed. Best part was a 5 minute walk to see the sun rise and sun set. Picnic tables were scattered around the various units to allow guests to enjoy your takeout food. Rooms were a bit dated but functional.
Our visit occurred during the Covid opening. We were lucky to find the Guest density was low and the hiking was a delight without the crowds. No shuttles running so you could escape to a quiet trail in no time. Maswik had the only open food court, so we saw a lot of guests passing thru from other accommodations. Our walk for morning coffee was a dream compared to their experience! Staff we wearing masks and social distancing was well marked.
I can not account for the lack of concern exhibited by the other guests. VERY FEW GUESTS showed any concern for space or face coverings. You will be surrounded by idiots at the Grand Canyon, in town, all of Arizona.
We selected this lodge because the rooms had external access. We felt very comfortable with the arrangement in consideration of the circumstances. After three days, we were looking for alternative food options.

Nice rooms, very clean. We had a 2 bed one bath on 2nd floor. Some rooms have balconies. Less than 5 minute walk to the south rim of Grand Canyon. Walkable to Maswik food court and information center.

Very close to nature but slow service
This hotel was great, as we were close to nature and only a five minute drive from the Grand Canyon. The service was very slow, we had to call 4 times and wait 3 hours to get a cot, but overall average.

Filthy dirty rooms
Had to leave our vacation 2 days earlier than expected being we weren’t going to stay in this lodge after seeing the filthy dirty bed sheets, comforter, bed skirt, pillows, and chair in this room. We were very surprised just how dirty this place was and we were only accommodated a few hundred dollars of a $1,000. paid trip. It was like something out of a scary movie. The comforter and sheets had black soot that smeared when you McGee and dried smeared blood on the sheets and comforter of the bed. There was thick dust on the bed skirt and heavily grease stained chair in the room. The pictures attached don’t show just how dirty it all really was.

Not Fancy, But Clean And Roomy
We really enjoyed our stay on the upper level of the "Yellow Pine" building. It was clean. The four of us had plenty of room, and the high ceiling made it feel even roomier. It was a short walk from the dining area, which we ate at several times. For those who don't need anything fancy, I recommend this option.
