Get there early. Take a jacket and water bottles. Don't get to close to the edge. Buses are provided but lots of walking is available as well. Buses shut down early so plan your furthest reaches first.

You should stay one night (that's all you really need). There are lodges right inside the park itself. Maswik and Yavapai are the more affordable ones. Check the official national park website for links.
