Nestled in Ponderosa Pine Forest, Maswik Lodge is only a quarter-mile from the Grand Canyon’s edge. The modern lodge is split into North and South sections. Motel-style rooms are open year-round and rustic cabins are available in the summer months. Rooms feature televisions and a full bath. North section rooms are more spacious and offer in-room coffee, refrigerators, air-conditioning and cable television. Cabins are small, with ceiling fans and showers. A large, wooden cafeteria opens early and closes late. The front desk staff is happy to guide families in the right direction toward area trailheads, mule rides or helicopter tours.

We feel so lucky to have secured two nights in this location -- walking distance to Canyon Rim. Staying within Grand Canyon Park is the way to go if you can. You are right there for all the hiking, programs, excellent bus transportation around the park. Friendly staff, good food court, nice gift shop, easy check-in and check-out. Need to make reservations way in advance (we lucked out by frequent checks for cancellations). Rooms were good sized and very clean, but rustic. Everything you need (small refrigerator, Keurig), but not lots of luxury frills. But that is good, makes you actually feel like you staying in a National Park Lodge!

This is not about the fantastic Grand Canyon, but about the room in the Lodge. Expectations were higher, respectively, price. Not thrilled. There were old towels that had lost their color with an odd smell.
