Long line of lodges - painted white brick walls inside and basic facilities - looked a bit like a prison cell with those walls. Canteen style restaurant nearby - very busy and they got the orders wrong for a few of us - too busy to go back to for a breakfast. Bar is right next to it and you could have food there - very full and busy. Their general store also had a small cafe. Free shuttle bus that took you to various spots. Very dark at night - need a torch.

We chose this lodge for the location and we were very pleased with the proximity to the Rim Trail. Room was clean. Food choices at the lodge were a little disappointing so we ate off site for all meals. Ground floor rooms are noisy near the stairwell, lots of people coming and going late at night and early in the morning. Would still recommend if you have a short time at the Grand Canyon and want to get an early start.

You want to hike the canyon, you reserve almost a year in advance then pay an arm and a leg and expect some comfort... wrong !
rooms are clean, no complaints, but the bathroom fixtures need a serious upgrade... and the pathetic WIFI ? , available but useless at the speed of a dialup !!!( still better than a year ago when there was none )
paid for the dog but got a , not so clean kennel and an empty bowl ( and the dog was the reason we stayed there )
Too bad there is not aMotel 6 there to offer better services...
I will go back next year, of course, but think harder where to stay

Good place, excellent breakfast
We booked a room with breakfast package. The room was clean, spacious and very confortable. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was very good. But the breakfast was the best to get energy for a whole morning hike along the north rim trail. Assorted and delicious. I would definitively come back!!

Best accommodation Grand Canyon
We loved this lodge as it was close to and in walking distance to the Visitors Centre and main hub and viewpoint of the Grand Canyon.
We especially loved it as it was QUIET without the throng of buses and tourists going past the front. Set in the calm of surrounding bush land , with deer , chipmunks and possums as visitors.
The room was a good size , clean, with great heating, fridge, coffee machine.
It has its own restaurant and is a short walking distance to a store.
Great place to stay.
