We stayed here for one night for our honeymoon.
I picked it because of it's location, since we were only spending one night at the Grand canyon, I wanted it to be on the rim of the Grand Canyon.
We arrived around 1pm, and check in was not until 4pm.
We went hiking and came back about 3:30pm and it was ready.
We chose one of the cheaper options, so the room did not have a shower in it, just a sink and toilet, there was a shared shower area in our building.
We did not feel the need to spend the extra for a shower considering it was only a night,
however if we were spending more than a night I would opt for a room with a shower, and also a room facing the Canyon with a canyon view and spend a little more money.
Our room did not have a canyon view, but it was only about a minute walk from our room to the rim.
The location is perfect, we were able to watch the sunset and sunrise, sunrise was better for that area of the rim.
You can start walking the rim trail from there and the Bright angel trail head is a 2 minute walk from the room.
Okay as far as the room goes, it's very small, the sink was tiny and there was not much space to move around or for your luggage.
The worst part about the room was how uncomfortable the bed was, only one pillow for each of us and that pillow was flat, so we took our coats balled them up and used them for pillows, the mattress was very hard too.
The other part we didn't like was how thin the walls were, one side was a man snoring that sounded like he was in our room it was so loud, and the other side of us was a lady hacking and coughing the whole night through, we weren't sure she was going to make it, it sounded so bad.
I do have to say the room was clean , no problems with that.
Check out was quick and easy, most employees were very friendly.
There is a restaurant, bar and gift shop at hotel.
The Food is pretty good at the restaurant, We had great service for breakfast, but encountered couple rude employees on the dinner shift.
Overall the Positives for Bright angel lodge is its location to the Grand canyon, and really only that.
The negatives were small room, uncomfortable bed and thin walls.
I have a family member staying here May next year, and I told them that since they are only staying a night to keep the reservation because the location is wonderful, any longer than that I would have advised to see what their other options were.
