We stayed overnight at Kachina Lodge in April 2014, booked a partial canyon view room. They put us at ground floor close to Bright Angel restaurant, with full view to the canyon (don't think it was partial canyon view, whole window was facing the canyon, beautiful). The room was old and not too big, but very well maintained.
The main benefit of staying right at the canyon is that it was easy to watch sunset and sunrise, which are really beautiful and majestic. You just need to walk outside the room or took a short drive if you wish to watch from another point. The temperature really dropped after sunset and before sunrise though, bringing a blanket from the room helped :) and I saw some people did the same thing.
We also found out that the sky after dark was lit with thousands of twinkle stars, nothing i have ever seen before, amazing. The view of the canyon with twinkling stars was just out of this world.
The only complains were 1) limited parking lots, 2) limited number of restaurants (you may want to reserve for dinner if you do not want to wait for an hour).
Other than that, we had a great time at the Grand Canyon and good night sleep at Kachina Lodge.
