Reminded me more of a Howard Johnson's. The place is a pit, the rooms are small and the prices are high. But I don't know that any other spot is better. If you don't make reservations a year ahead, then this is probably as good as it gets at the Grand Canyon. Breakfast was acceptable and the location was great.

Comfortable accommodations, comfortable bed. Don't expect much more than this. It was quiet, clean and not very far from the park entrance. Sheets and towels were soft and pillows were adequate. The room had a coffee pot, hair dryer, and various other amenities. Don't wait to buy your groceries until you arrive. Buy them in Flagstaff or some other bigger... More

Stayed here during my visit to Grand Canyon NP. Location is very good, close to grand canyon village. Room was ok. Breakfast was the best out of the 8 hotels we stayed in during our trip. Ample choice and good food. The price was also among the highest though.

We stayed two nights and found this to be a good hotel with great staff. The location was perfect for the Grand Canyon. The rooms where pricey but to be expected for the location. My only issue was that the internet service was terrible. I would stay again.

Granted, I know that you can get away with charging $200/night for a Motel 6-style room, but it doesn't mean I can't get grouchy about it. Besides, I've stayed in $200/night rooms that were far worse. This place was hoppin' - lots of tourists - because the location is pretty good - a few miles outside the entrance to the... More

We had a relatively pleasant two nite stay, with no major inconveniences. This place is a Holiday Inn Express, so don't expect luxury; expect a decent room. It's important to note that we stayed here because there were no rooms available within the Park. That would have been my first choice. This was a perfectly acceptable 'Plan B.' We got... More

This hotel was a good stop for getting easily to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Clean room, bathroom was clean but it was a bit small. The free breakfast wasnt very good,the choice was very limited,made worse by the male staff starting to clearaway & empty bins ages before the closing time.

I realize this hotel is convenient to the Grand Canyon but I felt it was overpriced for the quality of accommodations. The rooms could certainly use some updating and not the other ammenities Holiday Inn usually has...warm cookies when you arrive and 24 hr coffee service.
