You might try the Econo Lodge Airport on East Van Buren. A friend stayed there overnight last year and liked it. Nothing spectacular, but comfortable and handy. It has a shuttle service if you want to go there directly and pick up your rental car the next morning. If not, Van Buren runs east and west about a quarter mile north of airport. The car rental people should be able to give you directions. Next morning, you will be close to I-10. Take that west to I-17, and you are on your way to Grand Canyon.

The area the motel is in is not the best. It is in transition. It used to be motel row for US 60 through Phoenix before the Interstates. The Econo Lodge is well lit and safe. Read the reviews here in TripAdvisors.

Hotels are pricey in the Phoenix area during the winter months. Normally, you can't find a decent (safe and clean) hotel for under $200 during this time. On business travel, I usually stay at the Marriott Fairfield Inn in Chandler (off Interstate 10). It's a bit South of the Airport, but the drive isn't too bad and the rooms are very clean and quiet. They have lots of restaurants nearby, and they provide free passes to the nearby LA Fitness gym which is great.

Otherwise, I'd stay at a Marriott chain hotel near the airport (Fairfield Inn, Courtyard, Townsuites), or one of the LA Quinta chains.
