Reviewed 26 June 2014

This hotel is very outdated. The room was dirty, the bed linens and towels were just awful. The sliding window to go outside to your "deck" was in such bad repair it was almost impossible to open! The a/c did not keep the room cool. We booked a package trip from the grand canyon railway with a train trip and bus tour of the rim. This was the only hotel that was offered to spend 1 night at the canyon. After a long day we had to stand in a long line to check in and then our room was not ready. The staff were not helpful or friendly at all. Our bus tour included lunch at a cafeteria at this hotel where once again we had to stand in a long line to get our food which could not be eaten. I am very disappointed that the AAA endorses this hotel for this package as there are several other hotels at the canyon that seem much better with decent food.

Our room was very outdated and had bugs, including some decent sized spiders. The bathrooms appear to have been updated in the last few years, but had not been cleaned very well. The bedspreads are very old and outdated. Didn't even want to touch them much less sleep under them.
The cafeteria had decent cafeteria style food.
Signs to denote where various rooms are would be helpful, as would lighting for people returning after dark from dinner or sunset tours.

In a nutshell: I am giving this place 5 stars for location, cleanliness, friendliness of check-in staff, ease of reservations, and comfort. As long as you know that this isn't the Ritz, you won't be disappointed. It's basic and clean and you cannot beat the price or the fact that you are a few minutes walk from the GRAND CANYON!!

I have stayed at Grand Canyon lodges several times, always in the Maswik. This is a basic, super-clean, motel-styled lodge in a gorgeous setting. The rooms open to outdoor corridors like in the older hotels. The room is very functional, clean, and has everything you need. The beds were comfy, with clean sheets. The bathroom was small, but clean, with plenty of fresh towels. There’s a small frig, TV, coffee pot, and the heat works. There are 2 fans in the room, so I don’t know if there is airconditioning. There’s a little desk, but no wi-fi, except in the main Maswik area where you check-in.

LOVE the green aspect – shampoos and conditioners and body wash were in stationary, reusable containers, same with the hand soap and lotion at the sink (REALLY reduces plastic waste). I love staying in “green” hotels – but, unfortunately, they are few and far between; I appreciate that this place recycled and even had a recycle bin in the room!

What I love about this place, and other national park lodges, is dealing with the Xanterra Corp. Making reservations is incredibly easy and efficient. You have everything you need when you check in. The lady who checked me in at Maswik was wonderful – she was so nice and helpful, as are all employees from Xanterra I have come into contact with here and at other national park sites.

The rate was AWESOME considering I stayed a few steps from the Grand Canyon. The rate here was better that a rate I got an hour and a half away in Flagstaff, Arizona.

If you have ANY reservations about staying here, forget them. It exceeds all my expectations every time I stay here. Trust me!

Spent one night here to be near the rim of the Grand Canyon. Check in was easy and quick. The room was better than expected for park lodging. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Bathrooms appear to have been recently updated. Wifi was spotty in the room but got better the closer you were to the main building. Maswik has a nice cafeteria. Very short walking distance to Grand Canyon Rim and other south rim lodges.

We found the accommodation clean and comfortable. The rooms are large and close to the south rim, you can slip down and watch the early sunrise, just remember to take a jacket.
We found the food sufficient for what we needed. There was variety and whilst not an outstanding meal, it was fine for our needs.

We stayed in the cabin area of Maswik Lodge. the cabins were neat and clean. They had ceiling fans and heaters . Also coffee makers and a frig. Parking was at your door. The cafeteria had good selections at resonable prices. The walk to the rim was about 5 minutes.
A pleasent surprise.

Husband booked a room for June 13th-We checked in our room on June 13th and found out the air conditioner did not work-staff told us it takes about 10 minutes for the air con to turn on-After 15 minutes we complained to staff-the room did not appear clean and the queen beds had dirty bedspreads, took bedspreads off the bed only to find the blankets were not clean either. Called the registration office and staff agreed with me that the bedspreads do not get cleaned often(mostly never)--yuck--we canceled our reservation but staff was nice enough not to charge us for the room--and they re-booked us at the Yuvapai lodge. If you like a clean room and clean bed--this is not the place to stay

Room Tip: we left before we could comment on sleep quality but the mattresses appeared to be well worn out
