I honestly was a little bummed I couldn’t get a room at Bright Angel Lodge like the rest of my family this trip, but Kachina was surprisingly clean (much more do than the cabins) and had a cool mid-century vibe. My room had a coffee maker, which was nice since there is no restaurant or lobby here. Also a small fridge. The windows span the entire length of the wall- I had a nice tree-lined view of the back, but I’m sure the canyon room views would be spectacular. A VERY short stroll to Bright Angel or El Tovar for dining. Since it’s small, it’s easy to find your room as well! The only negative is the landscaping- I know we are here for views of the Canyon, but come on, they could do better than a yard of weeds with a few sad-looking shrubs surrounded by chicken wire!

Get a view of the rim!

Had a room with a partial rim view and it was worth the expense. Staying at a hotel in the Grand Canyon is not inexpensive, but it is definitely worth the effort if you can get a room. The opportunity to walk out and immediately get GREAT views (or even just look out your window) can't be understated. Easy to see sunrise and/or sunset over the canyon if you are staying there. Dining options right now are a little limited, so prepared to wait (or bring your own). Room was not big, but certainly clean and adequate for our stay. Check-in is at the El Tovar next door. Parking is limited right by hotel, so don't be surprised if you have to park a little further away.

We stayed for two nights and it snowed! The hotel was clean well kept up. After reading reviews online I thought it might be a little worn. Although the hotel feels vintage our room was not worn. It was up to date and very clean. Although the hotel is pricey the view of the canyon from our 2nd floor room before and after the snowfall was priceless. The biggest downside was the parking. It was a challenge to find parking and we were there midweek in March during Covid. There is an elevator but even with the elevator we had to use a small flight of stairs. If this is an issue for you the first floor is a must.

We stayed in a 2 queen partial rim view. It was nice to be right on the rim. It was very easy to walk outside and see the views. Could also see a bit from our window. My son spotted a deer out the window in the morning. Bathroom is small, but clean. It’s a very short walk to El Tovar. We were on 1st floor so didn’t have to use the stairs. We could hear people walking in the room above us, though. Would stay here again.

Clean and comfortable after hiking the Canyon

Came to the Grand Canyon about 14 years ago and stayed overnight back then. Staying at the canyon was pretty rustic back then. Thankfully the hotel biz up there has come a long way since then. The rooms were clean and comfortable with all the modern amenities. Took the train up from Williams and when we got to the Grand Canyon they had already delivered our luggage to our room. The room was simple but relaxing. Would recommend for a hotel right at the Grand Canyon.
