Only stayed for one night, room really comfortable, clean and with good amenities. Nice bar and lounge, lovely decor in lobby and throughout the hotel. Good location near main Route 66 and free western show before the train leaves for the canyon. Staff friendly and helpful and some great restaurants nearby, would recommend Pine Country.

The hotel has a medium sized rv park on the north side of the complex where we parked so i don't know anything about the rooms in the hotel. Facilities where nice and clean. The pool was good but they had a strange water cleaner that...

We bought the package tour that includes two nights here and one night in The Canyon. The hotel is quite nice. The lobby has been refurbished in a grand style. The rooms are comfortable, except for my pet peeve, the pillow. Guess I should have learned to bring my own.

As part of the Grand Canyon Railway package, we stayed two nights in this hotel (before going to the Grand Canyon and then two nights later when we came back). The place is very clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. It is a very large hotel, on two floors, and it can seem like a maze to...

Wonderful! the rooms were large and cozy. We had an inside room so the noise level was fantastic. The bed was extremely comfortable and service was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.
