These older lodge type buildings remind me of our family trips in the 1970's. The buildings are clearly older now, but have been more or less kept up over this time. We were assigned an upstairs room on the end of a block (as we requested a quiet room), and this was both quiet and comfortable. The room itself was a little dated (old TV, heaters, fans, and WC) but it was all clean in fine working condition, and we have no complaints at all.
The overall "campus" (yes it is quite a large complex) is well kept, tidy, and very well managed. The reception staff were very efficient and welcoming, and answered our questions easily. The food services are all cafeteria style, but the food itself was quite acceptable, and there are upper-class options elsewhere in the village if you want. The management of the campus have a very strong eco-friendly set of policies for the lodges and that is very much appreciated for a national park. All of the park buildings and facilities somehow remind me of my childhood when our family would go on car-trips... the atmosphere has not changed very much, and that is somehow a very welcome relief.
The real advantage to staying at Maswik (as opposed to outside of the park) is that it is the best value with close proximity to the Canyon itself. It is a good 10min walk from the hotel to the rim, but there are free shuttle busses everywhere in the village that run well into the evening.
Although the cost of staying in the village is much higher than outside of the park (there are no deals to be had here!) ...we were very satisfied with our stay at Maswik Lodge, and would certainly recommend it to anyone seeking the "value" place to stay on the South Rim.
