I am doing roadtrip Denver->L.A. in July/August with my teegae sons aged 18 and 14. I had problems booking my one night on South Rim. I ended up booking Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites in Tusayan at $209+ since I couldn't get anything in the GC Village.
Now I see that Bright Angel Lodge has available room for my day. I booked the Holday Inn with cancellation possibilities (full refund).
It seems that the Bright Angels is on the Rim and much cheaper.
Given that I bring my 2 teenage sons (18 & 14) should I change to the Lodge or stay in Tusayan.
