“Nice and cosy”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Of course, the cabins (we had a frontier cabin), are small and noisy and made of wood. And yes, you can hear your neighbors. We were lucky to have quiet neighbors. But hey, you're on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon! The cabin was perfect for 1 night, nice and cool, with a nice bathroom and shower and 2 beds. We slept like babies. And woke up to see the sun rise above the canyon.

This was my second and last trip to the Grand Canyon for an overnight stay. It's really sad. I love the scenery and the National Landmark it is. Unfortunately, they have priced themselves out of 99% of familes being able to afford to stay there. The government always gets on TV after a national disaster and say how they will not let anyone price gouge the public. Well heck, take a look at what you are doing at the National Parks. I rented a "Frontier Cabin." $135 a night. One double bed and a single. No room for luggage. Luckily I was traveling alone and used the single bed for my motorcycle back pack. No A/C! For $135 I would at least like a fan, NOPE! The shower was as small as I had ever seen. You almost had to step out to turn and get back in. If I had paid $40 maybe I could understand. This was the most expensive lodging I paid for on a five week bike trip.

Check in is done by pencil and paper. There was only two older ladies and they were in no hurry. I stood in line over 40 mins to check in.

There is no way an "average" family can ever afford to go there and spend the night. The US Govt is really limiting who can go. Make it affordable for all families.

I woke up early because of all the foot traffic from the helpers and you have to leave your windows open in 90 degee heat. I was greeted by a chipmunk and small green lizard on the floors. The chipmunk had gotten into my food. Big cracks around the cabin.

It's a darn shame the government allows these contractors to ripoff the public like this.

Room Tip: Stay outside the Grand Canyon and drive in for the day.

Views are magnificent ,restaurant was very good.The day we arrived in September ( from hot Las Vegas) was really cold and windy, so advise to bring jacket & jeans. Accommodation, clean & comfortable. There is no TV not a an issue but there was no WiFi which was very inconvenient.

Room Tip: Book 12 months in advance

Lovely log cabin located right in the Park. Amenities were basic but certainly met the need. Very clean and quiet location. Restaurant staff seemed tired and worn out from summer season. Cabins Convenient to trails. Would stay here again.

We spent the weekend here in mid-September, and loved it. 40's at night, high 60's in the day, just about perfect. The aspens are bright yellow & beautiful contrast to the evergreens. We stayed in a rustic cabin which was very clean & pleasant, No TV & a gas log fireplace made for a nice evening reading. Everyone we encountered was pleasant, courteous, & professional. The Lodge restaurant was excellent for dinner, & we thoroughly enjoyed our venison & trout meals. The Manager of the restaurant was a great fellow....Our 1st visit to the North Rim, & it is SO preferable to the South Rim. Sunrise & sunset from the veranda were fun & beautiful. Met lots of other travelers & enjoyed that too. At nearly $200 a night, this is not inexpensive, but our room was very clean & no a/c was not an issue. We will probably bring our travel trailer to the campground next time, but I'm glad to have had this experience. We'll be back ! !

We had intended to visit the North Rim and then carry on around to the South Rim, however it was raining and extremely foggy when at 12:30pm we arrived at the North Rim. Being that we were on motorcycles and riding in this sort of weather is dangerous, especially due to the fog, we took a break and had coffee and light lunch in the Lodge restaurant. My fiancé had a salad, while I indulged in a piece of blueberry pie which disappointingly - was made with canned filling. The forecast was to continue as was for the remainder of the day and into the next, so we enquired about a nights' lodging, only to be told that the lodge was completely booked and our only hope was for cancellations that may be available after 3pm. Fortunately the fog lifted for a couple of hours, so we walked around the North Rim area and snapped some photos while we awaited news of a cancellation which may provide a room for the night. A "rim view" cabin became available, and due to the weather and fact that the Lodge was the ONLY accomodations for many miles, we snapped up the $200 cabin. Unfortunately the rain and fog settled back in mid-afternoon, and we were stuck in the cabin which had no television or internet access. What a boring and disappointing experience, to be at the edge of the Grand Canyon with no views due to heavy fog and no in-room entertainment to pass the time. $200/night and no amenities - really in this day and age? Thought we could at least enjoy some drinks at the Saloon, however their drinks were over $7 just for a beer - again - really? Great historical facility, but needs to get with the times, offer better value/amenities for the guest costs. The cabin was quite dusty, with numerous spider webs and several live spiders. To say the cabin had a "rim view" was a stretch, although it was steps from the rim which was cool, the "rim view" was completely obscured by really overgrown trees and scrub brush. Do some tree trimming, clean away the spider webs etc - improve the experience for your guests.

Room Tip: Cabin was quite dusty, with a lot of spider webs. "Rim View" isn't technically true d...

We spent the night at the North Rim GC Lodge the week before July 4th. The cabins are dated and could really use an upgrade. The showers are the tiniest I've ever seen! Also there is no a/c. We tried opening the windows but the foot traffic combined with our loud neighbors made for a very long, hot night. Considering this is really the only place to stay and they're always booked, you'd think they would have a multi-function heat-a/c unit in the cabins. We ate dinner at the lodge restaurant. It was average, at best. We did, however, enjoy the breakfast buffet and were lucky enough to get a window seat that overlooked the canyon. We booked two nights but only stayed one. We explained why we did not want to stay the additional night and they were very understanding and apologized for any inconvenience. At least we got to see the north rim of the GC and that was fantastic!
