I fulfilled a bucket list item by visiting the Grand Canyon last week. My daughter selected Maswik Lodge because of its location on Park Property. She takes after her old man in her ability to make great decisions. Maswik served as our 2 day HQ for our 3 day visit to explore the Grand Canyon. Concierge provided great advice on ideal viewing spots for both sunrise and sunset. We chose to visit in January to avoid busy season. For sunrise, take a blanket from your room to add warmth. Then head back to the food court for a hearty breakfast. After breakfast, grab a fudge sample in the gift shop before heading back out on the trails.

Value, Location, Decor
We only stayed at the Maswik Lodge one night but enjoyed our stay. I loved the room decor and appreciated the small table and chairs. Could use extra outlets or usb ports for charging devices. We unplugged a couple lamps to use the outlets. There is food service and a lovely gift shop in the lodge. We ate at the pizza pub. The pizza was average... We have had much worse and much better. The asian wings (i think a special) were delicious. There was a decent selection of draft beer and TV’s with the game (NFL play-offs) on.

The best place to stay at Grand Canyon
Not a new place, but very clean and a great location within the park. Has every amenity we needed. I loved that it was just a few steps from the very nice buffet style restaurant, which was perfect for getting a good, quick meal (with a lot of variety) before heading out to hike, bike, etc. Staying elsewhere would have meant a bus ride to and from meals.

Very clean and convenient
Stayed one night, very clean, spacious room with a cabin feel. It is conveniently located inside Grand Canyon close to visitor center, there is parking close to the room . The room is located in a 2 level building with a sitting area outside. Room had 2 queen beds, a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. Bathroom was decent size. No WiFi in room, only WiFi in Lodge - which I was unable to connect to. Lodge has cafeteria style food items - a wide variety, also has pizza and pub area. Check in and check out is easy , decent value for the rate.

Clean room close to the rims...
We made a last minute reservation for a room with two queen beds in early January. The room had a small refrigerator, coffee machine. Food court/lobby/pizza pub is within walking distance and it had a reasonable selection of menu. During the summer and Christmas/New Year season, same room goes for $200-$300 a night; we stayed during the off-peak season so the room went for $150. Reasonable value considering that it is a motel room but in the middle of a very popular national park.
The lodge is 8-10 minute walk from the bright angel trailhead/lodge or one can choose to ride a park shuttle.
A couple of downsides:
(1) We stayed in a two-story building and if you are staying downstairs, you are at the mercy of upstairs neighbor behaving appropriately. We could hear them jump on the bed or round around. I slept through it but it kept my wife awake until midnight.If you are sensitive, you may want to ask for upstairs room or stay in 1-story cabins (I think they had these.)
(2) Heater was loud and it is right next to the bed; sometimes it will even blow cold air instead of hot air.
Some key highlights:
(1) close to the rim
(2) decent cafeteria and pizza pub within short walking distance
(3) clean room and bath
(5) coffee/tea packets
(6) no general store onsite
