After exploring the North Rim and driving back to South Rim, I was too exhausted to take pictures. What I do remember, is that the room was nicely appointed, had a very comfortable bed, and was in a prime location. It's nice to be able to have everything in walking distance. The view.... the rim view was breathtaking and LITERALLY just steps from the lodge. It was in walking distance to where we had dinner, at El Tovar.

While touring the Grand Canyon we stayed at the Thunderbird Lodge. The lodge offers spectacular views of the Grand Canyon itself and has free shuttles to take you to different parts of the park and trails. The wildlife, elk, deer, and bighorn sheep, are surprisingly unafraid of people and can be seen along the roadways, trails and common areas.

You can't beat the view. The room is just average and overpriced but you can't beat the location and view. Just wish they had assigned parking spots for guests staying there. Parking is a big pain. Make sure you make reservations for dinner in the village before you get there.

We stayed at the Thunderbird Lodge for two nights. We found a parking place in front and didn't move the car except for one time, but took shuttles everywhere. Initially, we thought it odd to check in at another property, but the logistics weren't that bad. The front desk person that we dealt with the entire time was Linda. She was an absolute joy! Yes, it was expensive and no, the room wasn't commensurate with the price. However, the view couldn't be beat and THAT was worth it! It truly was convenient to be steps away from such grandeur. Our trip was a once in a lifetime experience and staying on the South Rim was very worthwhile.

Ideally positioned on the Canyon rim at the Bright Angel point. I’d booked a partial rim view room, which gave a lovely sight to wake up to. We arrived early & were able to check in a good 2 hours or so before the usual 3pm time, which was great. The room was a good size, with a safe and fridge available. No complimentary breakfast (as expected for in-park accommodation) but food is available at the Bright Angel lodge a couple of minutes walk away. Although there’s parking outside & next to the lodge, it’s 1st come 1st served with all park visitors, so you may need to walk a bit to get to the lodge (although we were lucky & got a spot just outside!)
