  • Pleasantly surprised at the quality of the room; great bang for the buck

    This is a review of the lodging. I stayed in one of the rustic cabins, and was pleasantly surprised; not nearly as rustic as expected. Lots of good to say. VERY clean; the bathroom was upgraded; the bed was very comfortable; the heating system was silent and spot-on; Keurig coffee system; quiet small fridge; TV was old but worked great; room was quiet; free wifi worked but a little slow during peak times; the front desk was helpful; saw Elk from the front door; and the room was a one minute walk from the rim. In fact, I parked my car 20' from the rim. I've stayed at Yosemite Lodge (more $$) and this Bright Angel room was nicer. Great bang for the buck. Only potential negative is parking. It's like any national park; it can get dicey. If you try to park right in front of the lodge for check-in, you may not have luck. Drive around to the back. If you're confused, double park and get a site map from the front desk.

  • Exceeded expectations!

    This was our first time at the GC. Since Bright Angel has been around for a while and I spent a lot of time on Trip Advisor message boards, my expectation were that accommodations would be average. We found them better than average. There were 2 adults staying in the cabin.

    We originally booked at Yavapai Lodge and based on advice from people on the Arizona message boards, we switched to a cabin at Bright Angel. So glad we did.

    I don't remember our cabin number but it was pretty much tucked in the middle of all the cabins. We had a rental car and left and came back several times, but didn't have an issue with parking. However it was Feb. When we did find a parking spot, it wasn't a long walk to our cabin, but was a little tricky with luggage. It would be nice if they assign one parking space for each cabin. I cannot imagine how crazy parking gets in the summer.

    The beds could use an upgrade and the pillows replaced. Great water pressure in the shower and plenty of hot water.

    However I am giving it 5 stars because I absolutely loved staying here! It was cozier than I am expected and loved feeling like we stepped back in time a bit. Maybe our cabin was recently remodeled, but our bathroom was awesome. Very up-to-date. I never take baths in hotels and I did here. Loved the extra heater in the bathroom that you could turn on and off. Our room was immaculate.

    The front desk staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We left at the start of a snowstorm and some roads were closed. Front desk staff helped us figure out how to get where we were going.

    The restaurant was good. Not five star dining, but they had vegetarian options so I was happy about that. Spent time in the looks pretty tired but the bartenders were good.

    You just cannot beat this place for location and value. I believe our cabin was around $140 a night. You literally walk 30 seconds to the rim. As a side note, I wouldn't pay extra for the rim cabins. None of the cabins were far away from the rim and we noticed there was a LOT of foot traffic past those rim cabins and I would bet that during the high season, it is much worse.

    We did go over to Yavapai Lodge and were super glad we didn't stay there. Everything was much easier to get to at Bright Angel.

  • Cozy cabin

    Once I finally found the lodge, due to road closures everywhere in the village and low lighting, I was very pleased with my cabin. Bed was comfy but the pillows were quite hard, which we found difficult to sleep on. Also, very thin walls; didn't realize there was another room on the other side of the wall. Short walk to the edge of the canyon.

  • Amazing

    We stayed in a cabin on the edge of the rim. Spectacular views would recommend getting up for sunrise a sight to behold. The walks are amazing and if you get tired you can hop on the bus. Try and catch the American Indian dances.

  • Fabulous Location

    - If you are going to visit the Grand Canyon and want to stay overnight, then you MUST stay at one of the National Park Service hotels or lodges. Bright Angel Lodge is on the south rim and is located just steps from the rim of the canyon. We stayed in a cabin (do not pay extra for a cabin with a rim view because they all are just steps from the rim). Our room was warm and comfortable especially since it was very cold outside. The bed was super comfy, there was cable for the TV, and very hot water in the shower. It was a bit rustic but very clean and cozy. The food was very expensive for what you get but it was good. Just overpriced as was the bar. We stopped in a few of the other hotels for drinks and a difference ambience. El Tovar was our favorite bar. But we totally loved staying at Bright Angel and getting up early to see the deer walking through and the morning sun on the canyon walls. There is nothing better.
