“Great hotel close to Canyon National Park”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed here on an overnight while visiting Grand Canyon. The hotel is located in the town just outside the park and is serviced by shuttle buses to the park.

The hotel itself is at the higher end of the Best Western chain. There's a restaurant and bar as well as a gift shop. Rooms are clean with many practicalities. Wifi works like a charm.

Only downside for me was the food wasn't great.

Dear ImprovisedTravel,
We appreciate you writing a post about your visit to our hotel.

As you mention we are in close proximity to the south entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park. Shuttle buses are available which pick up guests in front of our hotel every 20 minutes driving them into the national park and back. This is convenient for guests and many do chose to ride the shuttle buses.

As you mention, we do have three restaurants onsite as well as a gift shop. There is also an arcade and bowling alley on the first floor. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the food while you were here.

Thank you again for staying with us. We appreciate your comments.

Best regards,
Heather

We are a family of four and stayed in a two-room suite. It was more expensive than the suites we usually book but for us the extra expense was worth it. The location is one of the hotel's biggest selling points. It is very convenient to Grand Canyon National Park and although we didn't use it there is a park shuttle right outside the hotel for those that would prefer not to have to look for parking within the national park. The suite was very spacious--we stayed in the main building. Breakfast was so-so. Staff was very friendly across the board, and we liked the game room / arcade in the lower level.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel and I wish we had stayed longer! The room was great, staff went above and beyond, and the game room, Bowling alley, and hotel bar were really nice. Just outside of the Grand Canyon and half the price! Would stay there again!!

This is the best hotel in Tucsayan, which is the town at the entrance to Grand Canyon park south rim. It has all the amenities, including a nice pool, full breakfast and even a bowling alley. Great choice and nice staff.

My wife and me stopped off here as part of our route 66 trip, albeit a slight diversion.

Unfortunately there was a difficulty with the booking. The hotel came up trumps and addressed the problem most admirably.

The hotel is well placed for trips to the Canyon.

The room was fantastic, very spacious and clean. Breakfast was also very good.

Arrived 3 hours later than expected due to delays on the highway with a major truck accident, so were pretty well "fried" upon check-in. Clerk said we were upgraded to a suite "just because" and was very informative regarding where to park, breakfast, etc. Offered the bellman's help getting all our things in (on a 3 week road trip so had many items to bring in.)

Chose this hotel due to its proximity to the Grand Canyon and didn't have high expectations even though it was much pricier than we're used to. Found our suite and IT WAS AMAZING! Absolutely everyone we came into contact with was welcoming, helpful, friendly, and the suite was spotless and incredibly comfortable.

We were on the 2nd level of the main building which I would recommend, since they have a bowling alley and other entertainment on the first level. The public spaces include a waterfall, restaurants and gift shops. We did hear some voices through the adjoining and exterior doors, but this didn't affect us since we could close off the bedroom from the front room, and the air conditioner drowned out any other noise on the bedroom side.

Breakfast was a buffet which was very extensive and varied and replenished frequently. Tables were plentiful and kept cleaned. Refills of coffee and water were offered by wait staff circulating the room.

This is truly a resort level experience. The only negative was that we could stay only one night!!!!

Just recently stayed at this hotel and found it to have some major benefits. It is located directly on the Grand Canyon shuttle line which allows for one to skip by the car lines to enter in the park. Make sure to have your park pass before boarding the shuttle. The rooms are spread over 5-6 buildings, but we found the 2000 building to be a nice location that was fairly quiet. Our room had a malfunctioning toilet, but was fixed as soon as we reported it. It is a quick walk across the courtyard to the pool and main building. Pool was a little small, but not very crowded. The gift shop and restaurants were a nice bonus. The pot pie was excellent in the canyon room restaurant. The sports bar and arcade were in good shape, but the bowling area has some glitches mechanically that need to be followed up on. We have a fussy eater, but he found many choices at breakfast to fill up on. Overall, our family of four had a very good experience.
