Great stay for a rest after hiking the Canyon. Our rooms were comfortable and the bed put me right to sleep. Bath/shower had all the amenities and it even had in room TV. The wifi isn’t the greatest, but you are here for the views, not downloading You Tube videos!

Breakfast buffet made this room awesome!

The family room we had included bunk beds big enough for our 9 and 11 year old kids. Our teen got her own queen! We bought the breakfast feature with the room and were pleasantly surprised! HUGE buffet -- eggs, bacon, sausage, chorizo dish, oatmeal, cream of wheat, juices, coffee, etc.. Some reviewers said they were not impressed. If you like breakfast food and are hungry, you will love this place. It was a 10 minute walk from our room to the breakfast place. Also, 10 minute walk to shuttle stop. Glad we stayed in the park to see sunset and sunrise, just as all the advisors on TA were saying,

10 Days At The Yavapai Lodge... The Buffet Is Your Typical Buffer, However I Find Their Menu Items To Choose From Is Slim, And The Exact Same Food For Breakfast, Lunch And Dinner Never Changes, Day After Day... Staff Tends Not To Watch The Food And Replenish When Close To Empty, They Seem To Wait Until A Guest Points It Out, Which Can Then Take 5 - 20 Minutes To Change Out... Most Buffet’s Replenish Dishes On Their Own As Needed, Or In A Matter Of Seconds As It Is Pre-Made And Ready... I Waited Over 5 Minutes On The First Day, And 15-20 Minutes For 1-3 Dishes To Be Replenished Each Day After That... Serving Spoons And Ladles’s To Serve Food Onto Your Plate Can Take An Extra 5 Minutes Or Longer To Bring Out, As They Supply Fresh Utensils With Each Change Out, But Fail To Bring Out The Utensils At The Same Time As The Food ... With This In Mind, Check The Hot Food You Want First, It Will Be Cold If You Need To Wait For 1 - 3 Dishes To Be Replenished... My Daughter Ordered A Breakfast Burrito (Made Fresh), They Made It Wrong Each And Every Morning ... The Majority Of Staff Is Seasonal (Makes Sense), However Most Seem To Come From Asian Countries As An Exchange Student For Job Experience , And Do Not Speak English , So If You Ask for Something Chances Are They Will Not Understand... Have Fun, South Rim After Breakfast Is Amazing!!!

Not a bad stay.

Considering how expensive it is to stay anywhere near the Grand Canyon (including the towns of Flagstaff and Williams) I felt pretty lucky to have found a vacancy here a week away from coming. However, the person on the phone never mentioned that our room was part of the few buildings that did not have air conditioning. Would I have declined? I'm not sure. But, it would have been nice to know. When we arrived at 10:00PM we entered an 85 degree stuffy room and could not figure out why the AC wouldn't kick on. When we called the front desk, that is when they informed us about no AC. Kind of a "oh by the way" thing. They did apologize and I now know why the price was lower than I was expecting for a room less than a half-mile from the rim. I do give the lodge bonus points for sending somebody out to our room with something to "swat" the many moths and May Flies(?) that were dive-bombing us. I assume that they came in when house keeping was cleaning the room because I noticed they would leave the doors wide open while they were in there. But, despite the rough intro to our room at the lodge, the temperature dropped to 45 degrees that night, and with the blessed ceiling fan running and the window wide open, we actually slept very nicely at night. Yes, it did warm up during the afternoon, but, we could get it cooled down for most of the time. The room itself was very nice and updated. We were even greeted one early morning with an elk looking in our window at us. Can't ask for a better wake up call than that.

Based on what I read I was a little concerned about this hotel but it was perfect. We stayed in the air-conditioned section and were pleasently surprised. It was updated, clean and a good location. Parking is easy but it's just a short walk to the grocery store and a over-priced (typical for tourist attractions) restaurant. Watch out for elk poop on the sidewalks. They are just wandering around everywhere.
