So happy that we stayed in a cabin. Couldn't be closer to the Canyon. GREAT price! Cute and clean. Room had a fridge and coffee maker. Very quiet. Really enjoyed being able to just walk out the door and start hiking or just watch the sunrise at the Canyon. Our room was near the road, but not much traffic after the sun went down. We only had one chair for seating, other than bed. Photos showed that some rooms had a table and 2 chairs. I would have preferred the table & chairs. No outdoor seating to have a cup of coffee or glass of wine, so would have been nice to have indoors instead of sitting on bed. Front desk said each room different, but could try to request. No air conditioning. The ceiling fan did an okay job, but we'd read previous reviews and brought a box fan to put in the window (since we were driving and could pack it). Glad we did, as it was still quite warm at end of August/beginning of September. Parking was a little random. No assigned spaces. But, always found a spot in the evening when day trippers were gone. Food at Bright Angel bar was fine, but we found better food at Yavapai Lodge.

Ideal place to stay for us

We stayed here in July. We booked it almost a year in advance and we are so glad we did. This was a great place to stay as we only had one night in the Grand Canyon. You are literally right on the rim which makes it so easy for walking around the rim and watching sunset and sunrise. We were in a room in Buckey Lodge and really liked it. Straight out into the fresh air and a few steps to the rim. The room was fairly small but very tastefully decorated and clean. And we spent most of our time outdoors enjoying the amazing views. Staff were friendly and gave some good tips.

Splurge to stay at the Grand Canyon Rim during your stay!

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the Bright Angel Lodge, and had a wonderful experience. We booked our rooms 8 months in advance. We splurged on getting a room with a bathroom (would recommend!). The cabin was fully equipped with towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, a coffee maker, coffee, tea, and a refrigerator. We stayed at the beginning of September. With the rooms having no A/C it was hot during the day, but it cooled down in the evenings with having the windows open. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend staying at the South Rim while planning your trip to the Grand Canyon! It was so nice to walk back to our rooms after a long day of hiking and sightseeing versus driving.

I postponed our Grand Canyon trip 1 year to secure accommodations at Bright Angel Lodge. Staying so close to the rim is a great experience. You can visit the Canyon at different times of the day (like sunrise at 6:00am) and take breaks in between. After each break, it's "wow" all over again when you see the Canyon. We found the rooms to be clean and cozy. Fridge and no microwave. We had a claw-foot bathtub and my folks had an accessible walk in shower. Staff was friendly and helpful. I will stay here again next visit. Food tip: If you have food allergies gluten-free casein free GFCF the Canyon Village Market and Deli has some food selection. The Market deli makes a gluten-free pizza. We were not able to find grab-and-go GFCF selections at Bright Angel Lodge, but we ate at Fred Harvey Burger which had a toasted Udi's gluten free bun. Location: The Yavapai Museum of Geology was our favorite stop as it gave us a greater understanding about the layers in the Canyon.

RIM VIEW ROOM IS A MUST!

I booked this hotel over a year before we came and asked for these rooms due to previous room tips and reviews. We had adjoining rooms of 6146 and 6147 which had the better view and was in the middle. Rooms were very good, clean and comfortable with good amenities (tv looks like it's snowing). Good chairs that swivel in the window and a door giving access out the front to the rim. Location is next to the Lookout Studio and directly out to the rim, perfect location. Up for the sunrise and took great photos, with a coffee in hand whilst sat on the wall, perfect. Loved to have stayed longer and well worth the money.
