Snagged a last minute room
We stayed here at the end of our rim to rim to rim Grand Canyon backpacking trip as our flight was the next day. We were originally going to camp and had reservations at the Mather Campground. We decided we wanted to try for a lodge room instead and this room was available (unbelievably). I was very happy with the room - it was clean and had been renovated. It was also very quiet but we were on the end of the building. There was a refrigerator and coffee maker in the room which was nice. There is a food court and pizza place in the main building of the lodge. All in all, I was very happy with the room and the fact that it was available.

The Maswik Lodge was not our first choice for lodging, but it was one of the few options still available inside the park when my husband and I booked our March 2019 trip. (For reference, we booked our room in December 2018.)
Nevertheless, we had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the lodge! Our room was large and had everything we needed for our 2-night stay. The food court was nothing spectacular, but I was pleasantly surprised by their selection of gluten-free items.
The biggest perk of the Maswik Lodge is its incredible location. The rim of the Grand Canyon and the Bright Angel Trailhead are a short walk from the hotel. After staying in the GC Village, I cannot imagine lodging outside of the park.

This is a decent motel within a 3 minute walk to the rim. The rooms were clean, although I did have to attack a spider in the bathroom. But that was no surprise considering it's location. One morning we were coming back from watching the sunrise and there were several deer hanging out at the steps of our building. That was a real treat. We also saw a couple from our window.
I would definitely recommend staying here for a night as opposed to staying just outside the park.

We ( myself and a 10 and 14 year old) were in the Mesquite building near the back of the property. It was a decent room with mule deer grazing right outside our window! Not fancy but included everything needed. I appreciated the bathroom
set up with sink outside of the toilet/shower area.
Only complaint involved the bed...only had feather pillows and the fitted sheet on the queen size bed was not queen size and the bottom /feet end corners did not stay on the mattress. Thought about using the folded blanket in the room but it had some sort of stain on it and decided not to.
Food in the food court/pizza pub was average. Pizza took a good 30 minutes to get late evening after a sunset tour. Sometimes sone of the stations in the food court were not manned making it challenging to order what you wanted, but there was a good variety and lots of grab and go options.

We booked this lodge because it was all that was left for the dates we needed. We were expecting a dated and shabby place, but not so! The room was really nice with ample space. So close to the bus- park here once and walk to transportation! There was a nice little private porch off the back of our room. There is also a mini frig. The beds were comfy and linens nice. Also close to dining for the lodge, which is food court style so there are many choices, including grab and go which was handy for us. The only downside was that the WiFi was really terrible, so just edit your pictures and turn off your phone!
