The cabins are very basic but have everything you need for a short stay. The location is 10/10 and the views from the hotel are completely breath taking. There are lots of options for food but just be aware that nothing is open very late so if you are getting back late from any trips, just be conscious you may want to eat elsewhere.

Hiker rooms at Bucky Lodge at Bright Angel

Bucky Lodge adjoins Bright Angel Lodge and had hiker rooms with shared baths. I was nervous about this lodging and the bathroom situation. The room was immaculate and had obviously been updated. It had a small sink and mirror which was great to teeth and hair. Room had a 3 foot upholstered bench at end of bed, 3 drawer dresser and another cabinet with small frig and top had ice bucket and small coffee service. Bathrooms were just a couple doors down with great locks and do not disturb for door handles. Always available and very clean. Best part is all the rooms just steps to the rim with no buildings between lodge and rim trail. So easy to po I to bright angel for food or gift shop. It was pure magic! Did I mention cheapest room of ALL in park Grand Canyon Lodging.

Using 3rd party to book here (AGODA) - don't do it

This review isn't about the lodge per-se, but about using a 3rd party to book at this lodge. In my case, I used the website AGODA to book a stay at the Bright Angel, and here is what happened: Agoda is the worst. I booked a 2 night stay in the Grand Canyon at a fairly expensive lodge, for a fully equipped room. After a complete day of hiking, I arrive at the front desk filthy and tired. I am informed that they (Agoda) booked a room without a tub or shower (no bathroom). The room they booked has a public shared bathroom shower down the hall. Sorry folks, I didn’t pay nearly $400/night for that. I ultimately had to book a stay at another lodge, which I paid for out-of-pocket. The lodge employees (gracious!) were familiar with this exact situation, apparently it has happened multiple times in the past (something about Agoda using the booking code “2QX”, where the “X” means ex-bathroom). I tried to work through this problem by calling Agoda 7 times! I kept getting the runaround until call #5, where an Agoda employee called the actual Lodge, verified my story, and verified that the lodge would indeed issue a refund because of Agoda’s error. I then received an email stating that they cannot refund my money. Call #6, the Agoda employee again verifies that lodge will refund the booking. The problem is, that the lodge must refund Agoda and Agoda must refund me. They ultimately refused to do that. In summary – I would heavily advise avoiding doing business with Agoda for anything. They are based Singapore, they outsource their support to people who simply follow a script and cannot think. They use 3rd party booking partners as middle-men, and absolve themselves of any responsibility for the ultimate booking. In my case, they completely failed to deliver what was promised, and refused to refund my booking (in fact, they offered me 10% Agoda cash, gee thanks). Never, ever again….

We were pleasantly surprised. You don't know what to expect when you book a cabin. We were in awe as to how close we were to the rim. We were set back a little, which was actually nice to not be on the main path. Room was clean, comfortable, had a frig and a great shower. You can easily walk to El Tovar or the bus stops and some hiking trails. Only negative is that parking is shared by everyone including those using the park for the day. Tip, there is Starbucks coffee at Yavapai, coffee at The Fountain wasn't very good. And make dinner reservations in advance

Quaint Cabin Steps from the Rim

My husband and I stayed in a 1 Queen Cabin at the Bright Angel Lodge in April of 2024 during our first trip to the Grand Canyon. We had originally planned to stay at a hotel in Tusayan, but as our trip approached, rooms became available at the Grand Canyon Lodges. We also looked into Maswik Lodge and Thunderbird Lodge, but decided to book a cabin at Bright Angel because it seemed to have everything we would need, and it was surprisingly more affordable than staying outside the park. To say we were delighted with our decision is an understatement! Check-in at Bright Angel Lodge was quick and convenient. Linda at the front desk was friendly and provided a lot of helpful suggestions for where to park, where to eat, etc. We were assigned cabin 6174, which was a duplex cabin. We arrived late in the afternoon and had no trouble finding a parking spot near the rim and our cabin. The cabin itself was adorable and extremely clean! It had a queen-sized bed, a small dresser, one nightstand, a small closet that contained a safe, a mini-fridge, and a coffee maker. The private bathroom had a full shower, toilet, and a small sink. I think our cabin was accessible because the shower appeared to allow for wheelchair access. It included a fold-down seat as well. The only negative was the lack of counter space in the bathroom. There was none, other than a few narrow shelves above the toilet. A hair dryer and toiletries were provided. The outside temperature was in the 70s when we arrived and cooled off into the 40s at night. The cabin does have heat, but we barely had to use it. We were very comfortable and it was extremely quiet. I stepped outside in the middle of the night to check out the sky and was absolutely in awe of how clear it was. There were stars EVERYWHERE! The best thing about the cabin was its proximity to the rim of the Grand Canyon - it was less than a 1-minute walk to the rim! It was also conveniently located next to the restaurants at Bright Angel Lodge and the shuttle stops! We would not hesitate to stay in one of the cabins at the Bright Angel Lodge if we return to the Grand Canyon!
