Let's be honest, if you're going to the grand canyon you're not going there to stay at a swanky hotel. This being said, the Yavapai Lodge has great amenities - I would say that it is comparable to a regular hotel in terms of amenities however, something which truly blew me away was the friendliness and willingness to go the extra mile of the staff. Every single person I talked to was able to answer my questions and Natalie C. at the front desk went incredibly above and beyond her duties to make sure that my stay was as good as it could be. It's true that approaching people with kindness, openness and no expectation will often yield better results than any other way but that aside, Natalie truly made a difference. As someone who'd never been to the Grand Canyon before she made my stay incredibly special. If you get to read this, thank you Natalie - I really appreciated your kindness and it stuck with me! ;). All in all, there's so much to see in terms of beauty around there, not just scenic but there's an ambience to be felt when you're around people who are surrounded by beauty of such magnitude. And, if you need a few creature comforts I will say that the brewery/restaurant is also pretty great! Highly recommend! :)

Although the rooms are not fancy, they are practical and clean. The products in the bathroom are from Bath & Body Works which was a nice touch. The air conditioner worked well and the bed was comfortable. This place was in a perfect location due to its accessibility to a general store with groceries, beer and wine, and hiking equipment as well as a post office and the restaurant at the Yavapai registration building was very good too. We bought postcards at the general store to mail out to family and they arrived with the Grand Canyon postmark within a few days. Overall, its was a good experience and would stay there again.

Awesome Place and worth every penny (well priced for the location). Everything was awesome about this place amenities, location, staff and cleanliness. Maybe the best part of all was Jamila at the front desk on our way out, she put an awesome final touch on our impression of the place. Thank you Yavapai Lodge!

The hotel was nice, but nothing special besides location. The location is great!

I highly recommend staying here for the convenience factor. The fact that you stay in the park makes it worth it, especially if you want to take an early morning hike to beat the crowds and/or heat. The restaurant at the lodge was also very good! I highly recommend the elk burger. The lodge was a little expensive and the room was nothing special, but as previously stated, location was everything, especially since we started hiking at 4 am.

You stay here because of the location and not because of the accommodations. The rooms were big and the air conditioner worked well. The location in the Grand Canyon National Park was awesome. Now for the not so good. The carpet needed cleaning. The lighting was poor. There was no housekeeping service due to restrictions which is fine BUT there was no convenient way to dispose of any trash. Many of the eating sites were closed and the nearest required a 10-12 minute walk each way.
