Positives: functional and comfy beds and the coffee machine was a great addition. Great for 1 overnight stay Negatives: expensive, the lock on our cabin has seen better days. The room could have done with a much better clean and the there could have been better lights.

Terrible! Prisons and hospitals contractor Aramark, operates Grand Canyon North

Serving prisons, hospitals, elder-care institutions, Grand Canyon North rooms and food services are contracted to Aramark (ARMK: stock symbol) a publicly traded Fortune 500 company, Aramark controls the North Rim Grand Canyon Lodge and food. Grand Canyon North generates revenue for ARMK by harvesting unskilled labor to handle food, website, reservations, and rooms in parallel with prisons and hospitals, schools and dorms. Expect the worst and hope for the best.

A shame.

The positives: location and all of the staff I met were wonderful. The negatives: the condition and cleanliness of the accommodations. We stayed in a frontier cabin, which was grubby, and the carpet was filthy. The mattresses and pillows were terrible. If the CEO of the company that runs this place knows about the condition of this property, shame on them. If they do not know the condition of this property, shame on them. Corporate greed, plain and simple. Such a shame, as it really wouldn’t take much to upgrade these facilities. I’m sure the condition leaves a bad taste in many peoples memory of their visit.

Bucket List checked off!

We were fortunate enough to be able to secure lodging here! My husband has been trying for a couple of years to do a R2R hike from North to South. Being able to get an early start was key. We stayed in one of the motel-type rooms, with parking across from it. The Dining Room was huge, had friendly staff and awesome views. The trailhead was a little over a mile, where I dropped him off at 4AM and continued on to explore the grounds myself. There's something so surreal about being the only person at the normally busy Bright Angel Point. It was just me and my little squirrel friend. We were expecting the amenities to be limited, as typical for remote locations like this and Havasupai Lodge for example. But at the end of the day, I would pitch a tent and eat beef jerky just to be able to see stellar views! DEFINITELY WORTH IT!

Great Views, poor lodging

While the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is a majestic beauty that everyone should see, the accomodations on the north rim are poor. You stay in old log cabins with very few amenities: no wifi, no tv, mostly no cell signal and worst of all the hot water either did not work or took 5 minutes of running to get. Not what you would expect considering the large amount of money you are spending each night. I still consider the North Rim experience so much better than the South Rim, just make sure you lower your expectations for the lodging.
