Mawsik South Rooms are Nice and New!
Price of the room was high, but makes sense given location and demand. Rooms were brand new and beautiful, kitchenette was hugely helpful while traveling with a family (especially since the food within the Canyon village was so-so)

All about the location!
Very basic standard rooms, but very clean. You pay to be inside the park, which is what we wanted. The room was average size, the bed comfortable, but I didn't care for the pillows, it was like they were filled with air you couldn't not flatten. Bring you own pillow! We didn't have a deck/balcony just a window looking at the back of the hotel. We didn't see any animals, but since it was cool outside we loved having the window open. Coming from Florida, we are big fans of hotels that allow you to open your window and get some fresh air. Check in and checkout were very easy and the staff was nice. We decided to cut 1 night off our trip (2 days was enough, unless you are hiking down the canyon). I called the front desk and they gave me a full refund on my 3rd night. I wasn't expecting that, so I was very happy!

Not a great experience!
We stayed in the Mesquite Building on the lower level, this lodge was a part of a package offered by the Railroad.
I was very disappointed in this lodge especially our building which was the only building that did not offer a porch with chairs.
The room was about as basic as I’ve ever seen. And the grounds (sidewalks) around our building were broken up and dangerous at best.
There was suppose to be a pub with pizza but it was closed and the food that was offered looked like it had been there a while.
It seemed that if you purchased the package deal you got the worst rooms. They said it would have two queen size beds (I requested an up grade to a king size and was told I couldn’t with the package, I told them I was fine with paying extra because my husband is 6’4 and queen size beds our not comfortable) when we got to the room there were full size beds.
The bathroom had been remodeled but was not clean and there was dried up coffee on the counter around the sink.
As far as furniture other than the beds, there were two hard metal chairs and an old wooden table and tv stand with a small tv.
There was something on the sheers that I didn’t want to identify.
I wish I could have seen another room to see if all the rooms were this bad, but I couldn’t. Due to what we experienced, I would not recommend this lodge to anyone and will not stay here again.

Standard room close to the rim
After reading the reviews I knew the rooms were going to be basic standard rooms. You pay to be inside the park, which is what we wanted. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and I didn't care for the pillows (no matter how many I used my neck would always be hurting in the morning). We didn't have a deck/balcony just a window looking outback. We saw one mule deer walking but didn't have to go far to see others. Checkin and checkout were very easy. Would stay here again if I were to return.

Great Stay Inside the Park
Our room in Willow was much nicer than I expected. After doing so much research I knew I wanted to be inside the rim, but I also knew the hotels were pretty basic. Our room was great. The bed was comfortable, the room clean, we had a refrigerator, and we had a sliding glass door on the first floor that had mule deer outside of it every morning! We also had a very cute table with two chairs. It was so nice to be inside the park. We would come back for lunch and a quick rest then get back out there.
