I loved staying at Bright Angel Lodge. The room had been updated but they kept many historical features and what was added fit with the historic nature of the lodge. Sometimes you don't get much at National Park accommodations other than being in the park. At Bright Angel Lodge, the room was great, reasonably priced and you are truly just steps away from the Canyon rim. The lodge was also super convenient to the Hiker Shuttle. The bathroom is small, but it is private and functional. I look forward to coming back again.

We stayed in one of the rim view cabins. It was a great experience. Expensive but so worth the price. The cabin is about 50 ft from the rim. Not having to deal with parking or driving in from town every day made the stay even better. Was here two nights. The cabins are just far enough back that even with all the people, it was never loud or disruptive. The walls are a little thin. The cabin is basically a 4 plex and we had to listen to our neighbors from New York argue about money at 3:30 AM. Great way to be on location to watch the stars and see the Milky Way. Room was very clean, and front desk was exceptional. Room has a small fridge and coffee pot. No microwave.

Unforgettable Experience

My husband and I stayed in a rim view cabin following our one-day rim to rim hike on June 9th. The view was breathtaking and the cabin was perfect. Quiet mornings at the rim before the crowds arrive are simply magical. But what really sets Bright Angel apart is its wonderful staff. Derek at the front desk was exceptionally helpful and kind. The biggest surprise was finding my lost (valuable) earrings in Lost & Found a week after my stay. My deep gratitude to the room attendant (6145) who found and turned in my lost earrings and to Rose in Lost & Found for shipping it back to me. Customer service and human kindness at its best. Thank you Bright Angel staff! We can’t wait to go back.

We stayed in the standard lodge, which had multiple rooms. The rooms are tiny, but clean and comfortable. We were but a minute's walk to the rim. Had an issue with noisy neighbors past midnight but otherwise, all would have been just fine. I would suggest, if possible, booking one of the separate cabins on the rim.

What a great experience! My cabin was about 1/2 the price of my family's room at the El Tovar, but was much nicer and appeared recently renovated. It's just plain fun to stay here. Mary Colter wanted each cabin to look a bit different so it actually feels like a real village that sprung up on the canyon rim. This is THE place to stay at the canyon! Rooms sell out fast, but keep checking as your stay date gets closer and many times a room will open up (that's what I did). Don't feel like you need to get a partial rim view cabin; these rooms are set a bit back from the rim trail and have no outside furniture to sit and enjoy anyway (do you really want to look at the canyon from inside your room?) Other rooms are all just steps from the rim. The only problem is most of the rooms have only 1 bed, and only a queen at that, so you and your honey will need to cuddle a bit. They will also not allow a rollaway in most rooms, though I'm not sure why as my cabin had plenty of floor space for this. Many families will therefore need to book two rooms, doubling the cost. But, if this all works for you, you will not soon forget a stay here.
