Maswik North or Yavapai East or West

We are visiting next week and there are still rooms available at both these lodges.

Which would be the best best location and the nicest accomodations. We will likely stay 2 nights.

Thank you.

Maswik always books up before Yavapai.

We've stayed at Maswik twice in the past... the location is awesome.. very short and easy walk to the rim.

For the money, it's an awesome deal. The rooms were very clean too,.

I wish we were there right now!

Enjoy.

Thank you for your help. We have booked the Maswik and will be there one week from today. I am so excited! We are leaving Vegas on Monday morning and driving north to Page for two nights, the GCNP for one night, one night in Flagstaff and the last two in Sedona before heading back to Las Vegas the next Sunday.

@ktgirl: good job on scoring the room at Maswik! Remember, it's a National Park, not a resort, so don't expect the Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, etc., but then again people will give their right arm to stay in a broom closet inside the park during peak season, so you got very lucky.

A couple more things in case you weren't aware: due to a roadslide that occurred on the main highway leading South from Page, a detour through Tuba City AZ will be necessary on your way to GCNP. Map ->: http://goo.gl/maps/cpSZh It will add +/- 1 hour to your drive, so plan on taking 3.5 hours to get to the South Rim, longer if you stop at the Cameron Trading Post and/or the overlooks on the way to Grand Canyon Village on the East Rim/Desert View Drive.

If you would like to visit the Historic Downtown Area of Flagstaff during your visit, have to tell ya that parking and driving is a nightmare there - lots of one-way streets, very few proper parking spaces, etc. One of the local tour companies, the Grand Canyon Store, offers a free on-call shuttle from the local hotels to their office downtown. They'll give you a walking map and a packet of coupons for restaurants, gift shop and other local merchants. Then when you're ready to go back to your hotel, just pop back to their office (it's across from the AMTRAK station, super easy to find) and they'll take you back.

Have fun!
