One can imagine all the thousands of families that have stayed in this old lodge since it was built. People , who like us, have enjoyed the amenity of staying within the National Park and being so close to all its wonders . Our room was probably a little better than we expected - clean, cosy and comfortable. It is all you need when you are enjoying the South Rim from sun rise to sun set. The Lodge is close to a large restaurant, pub and general store. You can park right outside and use the Park bus system to get about. We were there in November and found it possible to park at the Visitors Centre to get buses from there which saved a bit of waiting time. We only had 2 nights, one very full day, but with the help of the Rangers at the Visitors Centre to plan our time, we were able to see a lot of the lookouts and come away with a fabulous impression of the Grandness of the Canyon.

Nice cottage

We wanted the "inside the park" experience. We booked this lodge and were very happy we did. It was an off season so it was not crowded, which is a good thing. You can control the heat, so that is also good. Beds were comfortable. Room small but you won't spend the day inside!!!

Great location, easy parking, very quiet and peaceful

We stayed here for 2 nights in June 2018 as part of a road trip. We previously stayed in 2000 and some friends of ours who visited the South Rim a couple of years ago and stayed elsewhere told us the canyon was now very noisy and overcrowded. So we were pleasantly surprised to find that the area around Yavapai Lodge was still quiet and peaceful! I liked that I could park right outside the lodge. The room was very nice, and very clean. the check in staff were very helpful. It is a short walk to the shuttle bus stops. We would definitely stay here again

Average - but better deal than the overpriced competition

Finding a place to stay inside the park can be a challenge - and you need to book way in advance. While this is an average 2 star accommodation it is at least reasonably priced. Don't not like the main restaurant, but the bar had reasonable food and outdoor seating. While it is not located on the canyon rim it is next to the general store, which stocks all manor of provisions.

A very nice Lodge

Clean, rooms, nice staff, good value. Easy access to the buses that take you along the canyon rim. Decent food and drink at the restaurant! A very spotty wifi only at the Lobby, and none in the cabins. American national parks doesn’t seem to prioritize cellphone services and wifi! It’s more third world.
