It was so nice to be right in the park. The hotel was nice. We had a king room, with plenty of space & a very nice bathroom, Sunrise right from the rooms window. Parking is a big issue. We think they should assign a parking space to each room; when you pay for a room, you should be able...

We spent 4 nights here from April 27th until May 1st. We booked a partial rim view and it was worth it to us. We had a king room that had plenty of space and was well worth the money spent. If you plan to explore the canyon and the park amenities then you need to stay at the park....

Room was clean and ready on arrival. Bed was not especially comfortable and the pillows were horrible. However you don't get luxury in a national park and this was quite fine for a two night stay. Thee is very limited cell and internet service here.You can't compare this to the wonderful Zion Lodge or you will be letdown. Enjoy the...

You can't beat the view from these rooms - you can see the canyon every morning when you wake up. You're seconds from the village's few restaurants, a deli/snack area at the Bright Angel Lodge, and pretty much all the main south rim trails. The rooms themselves are pretty good, though my family mentioned the AC unit made them stuffy....

Nice hotel. Located in the Grand Canyon National Park. Part of a complex of 4 hotels. South rim of the Grand Canyon is right outside your door. Rooms were clean. Would suggest paying the extra $$ for a room Canyon side so you have the view. We faced the entry road, but as I mentioned, the rim is right out...

Nothing special about this motel except the view. Hotel has coffee, horrible wifi, and is a typical motel room with no amenities but the price. The price is for the view. View is amazing. Worth it to wake up and watch the sunrise over the Grand Canyon from your bed.

We stayed here for a night and the room was nice and cozy. Great that there was coffee and tea in the room since it was snowing outside. You don't need a room with a view here. We were on the ground floor facing the street and that too was a pretty good view. 20 steps out of your room...

We spent a lot of time planning our trip the the Grand Canyon. We weren't sure if it was worth the effort to keep trying for a room on the rim versus staying at the Maswik. I think it was worth it. We ended up getting a canyon side room at the last minute. It certainly wasn't as important as...

I was very lucky to find a room at thunderbird lodge when I planned the trip just a month ago. Usually the rooms are sold out. If you want to stay there, book earlier. The room is clean and comfortable. Next to the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately, we got snow the day we arrived. It was cold outside. So we stayed...

We stayed two nights at the lodge and found it comfortable, clean and so convenient. Our room had a view of the canyon and we stepped right out to the South rim trail. The beds were super comfortable. There is in room coffee service and a mini fridge. Everything in the bathroom was modern and clean. Ample soap and lotion...
