One night at Maswick and One at Yavapai

I wanted to stay 2 nights in GCNP - I got reservation for the first night at Maswick lodge but second night was not available so I grabbed Yavapai Lodge. Is this doable? I know we will have to check out and keep the luggage in the car and it will be a hassle. Has anyone done this?

Yes doable, but keep checking for cancellations so you can stay at the same place, and ask when you check in, they may have a cancellation that day!. Also call for more updated availability.

I literally just did the same the past 2 nights, but in reverse. Wednesday night Yavapai, Thursday at Maswik.No real issues. Always worth checking for cancellations, which didn't happen for my group. Not too much of a hassle, just took 5 minutes to pack up at Yavapai, we went about our day and spent 15 more minutes checking in again late afternoon at Maswik before heading out again.

I'm confirming that persistance really does pay off in getting the room you want. I've had a reservation at Yavapai for a few months now which I was perfectly fine with. But as the date for our trip gets closer (we'll be there in a week!), the more I wished I was staying at the rim. Following Trip Advisor advice, I called every day for the last 3 days and tonight was successful in switching to the Thunderbird! You just have to be willing to wait on hold for at least half hour.... totally worth it! So excited!

@wave2wave, Thunderbird has the advantage of being right at the rim, in the main part of the Village, so convenient to all the restaurants, shops, etc. Yavapai is a short walk from the rim, in the woods, so quieter, and easier access, parking, etc.
