Trip to LA
Hotel was perfect in location. We arrived late and check in was a little difficult because it was dark and hard to find parking and check in office. The next morning's view was so worth it! There was no place to eat inside the park upon our arrival at 9p. Luckily we had some trail mix and chips with us.

Good 6.0
2 day stay at the Grand Canyon
Me, my husband, and our adult daughter stayed 2 nights at the Thunderbird Lodge inside the Grand Canyon. The lodge is outdated on the outside, but it looks like the owners have tried to keep up with modern amenities and decor as much as possible on the inside. Overall it was quiet, safe and clean. Rooms are small and a bit cramped and A/C did not work that well. Walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors. Beds are just okay.

Poor 2.0
No electricity- ruined food
The electricity was out when we arrived. It came on a few hours later. The next morning when we went to leave I noticed some of my food was frozen. I didn’t complain at a time because I thought it was just a couple of things. Later realized it was most of my food that we needed for our trip home especially with Covid and not getting to restaurants. They would not give me a refund because I didn’t call until the day after. Very disappointing.

Stay in the canyon!
I have been to the Grand Canyon many times but this was the first to stay in the canyon; it was well worth it! My family love it! I would have liked more amenities but I understand during this time.

Very good 8.0
Easy access to GC
This place was amazing because of the easy access to the Grand Canyon. We got to see deer eat right in front of our room window and hotel. The only issue we had was the fridge not getting cold.

Good room, awkward check-in
Loved the location in a not so friendly travel climate. A clean room but awkward check-in. No registration desk onsite, need to check-in at nearby Bright Angel Lodge. I would stay again without a doubt.

Good for the price
We had read the prior reviews and so expected a very basic room. That's what we got, so expectations met. The pillows were awful in my opinion and I had trouble sleeping as a result. My wife was fine with them, however. We did have a view of the canyon, which was awesome. And it was super convenient being located right on the rim. Our room was 55% off, so hard to beat that!

Pleasantly surprised
Pleasantly surprised with the quality of this place. Awesome location with a “view” of the Canyon from our room.

Magnificent View for the price
This lodge is on the south rim and steps away from the Grand Canyon. The room was comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. We could even see the Canyon from our window. At night the elk came right to the door feeding on the sparse grass. It was amazing!! The price for our room was great considering we could have spent hundreds more and had the same view. The only issue was that check-in was at another facility and that was not indicated on the doors to the lodge(which were all locked) or on the website.
