I am a travel agent and stayed here two nights while visiting the Grand Canyon. Upon arrival, Elyse gave me a tour of the property (which I did not expect) and was very courteous at check-in. I booked a private room and I was glad I did - it was quite small, but clean and perfect for one person. It had an ensuite bathroom which was also small but adequate for my needs. Even though I was near the road, noise was not an issue; I got two good nights' sleep!
The free breakfast provided is adequate, with porridge and healthy options to choose from (and surprisingly good coffee!). There are two kitchens on-site and a lounge area with free foozball and pool tables for guests. There was a room for internet at $2/half hour if you did not have your own device to use the free wi-fi. Most of all, the area was great - several unique local dining options were within a couple of blocks' walking distance.
The real highlight of my stay was the Grand Canyon tour offered by the hotel. At $85 per person it's substantially cheaper than a lot of other tours out there yet provided good value for money. Our guide, Dan, brought us to several lookouts as well as down a trail 800 feet into the canyon. A great day and a trip highlight for sure!
