    « Would stay here again... »

    I booked Best Western Grand Canyon only a few hours prior to my arrival. They were out of designated pet rooms but opened up another one so I could stay here with my dog. They were overwhelmingly cordial at check in and check out, even giving my dog a welcome bag with milk bones. The lobby is lovely. Very convenient to the entrance of Grand Canyon South Rim.

    Minutes from the entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park. Clean rooms. Nicely decorated lobby and rooms. Loved the framed photography in the hall on the main floor. Nice gift shop.We would stay there again.

    « Do Not Recommend - Find an Alternative »

    Find another hotel. Found this specific Best Western confused about the concept of hospitality. When guests arrive after a very long arduous car trip -- you don't say, when they arrive a bit early, yes rooms are available, then come back and say -- sorry, rooms aren't available unless you pay $25 per room for early access. What? Are you serious? Can you operate a hospitability business any worse? I complained --and Mgt responded by blaming the front desk agent. Poor management. Find an alternative hotel near Grand Canyon. There are plenty to select from.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    Just outside of the Grand Canyon, this hotel had plenty of space, clean rooms, a pool and game room. A couple of restaurant choices and friendly, helpful staff. There are also several restaurant choices nearby and a quaint downtown area. Enjoyed my stay!

    « Just ok hotel very close to the Grand Canyon »

    We picked this hotel because of its location - just 1 mile south of Grand Canyon entrance. The hotel is fine, nothing special. Rooms were spacious but plumbing could use some upgrading - as guests in the room above were taking a shower I could hear the water running - thankfully it was not during the night. AC and fan were working but air circulation was poor. Even though the room was very large, the air was stuffy. We did not need much and just needed a convenient place to stay during our visit to Grand Canyon. Overall, it was an ok stay, We had limited interaction with the staff but everyone seemed friendly and willing to help.

    « Comfortable hotel - shame about the restaurant »

    A large property with clean, spacious rooms and very large bathroom. The bedroom also had coffee making facility in the room with a dedicated sink to this area which was very convenient. It is located just 10 minutes drive from the Grand Canyon Car parks. From a bedroom and location point of view we were happy with out choice. However Tusayan offers mostly fast food restaurants so on the first night we ate at the hotel buffet which was a monumental mistake. Shame on the hotel for serving such atrocious food. The hotel must think that tourists will not come back so it doesn't matter.

    « Good but could have been better »

    Staying out of the Grand Canyon was a smart move on my family's part which is why we stayed at this hotel.. The buffet did not look appealing and I was surprised that breakfast was not included. The staff were pleasant and I must admit the soaking tub in our room was a god send after hiking in the canyon. Would I. stay here again, the answer is yes

    4
    « Good but the buffet was terrible.And breakfast is not free but should be. »

    The buffet was awful. I would compare it to cafeteria food. I could have eaten at Wendys near the hotel and it would have been better. And for half the price. I paid $66.43 for 2 adults and 2 kids and left hungry. And the taste. It was junk. The ice cream machine they use is the same one in my kids middle school. This hotel would have been fine except for the buffet. If I stay here again I would not use the buffet again, We had the breakfast in another part of the hotel. That was really good. I don't understand why the breakfast was great, the buffet was horrible and I paid $18 more for the buffet! I think it is disgraceful the hotel has this buffet, serves it to guests and thinks it's acceptable. It isn't. It's far from it. I go to eat dinner on a Sunday night, expect good food and experienced this subpar cafeteria food. I mean, come on, I ate at the airport for this price and the food was better. The hotel had a prix fix in the restaurant where we ate breakfast but it was from 5-7. Too early for me after spending a day at The Grand Canyon. You guys really know how to get a person and take advantage. On a Sunday night most places seem to close so what did we have available other than the buffet for a reasonable price? I'm on a budget trying to save money, expecting decent food. I wish we had gone to the restaurant and had a decent meal even though we would have paid more money. Another thing: I noticed there was no microwave or refrigerator in the room. I've stayed in many hotels and they all had refrigerators and microwaves. The only one that didn't that didn't this trip was in Las Vegas.

    « Excellent time! »

    This hotel was way better than I expected. It is very busy in the main building and parking was hard to find. We went to check in and that was super smooth and fast and the staff was excellent. I guess according to the other reviews it really matters in which building you stay, the main building (and perhaps other ones also ) is old but well kept. As being a Diamond Select member we were assigned a room in a Very new building and it had a balcony facing the beautiful pool area. The room was amazing with a huge bathroom and nice walk in shower. the room was huge with a keurig coffee machine. Probably one of the best rooms I have ever seen in Best Western Hotels. The hotel had a nice indoor pool and also a heated pool and a nice hot tub. Breakfast was great with omelet chef but it was lacking fresh bagels.

    « Would not recomend to my Friends »

    My wife and I checked in here on Sunday 4/8. The Hotel seems older and in need of an update but the rooms appeared clean at first glance. We got our stuff into the room and left for the Grand Canyon National Park. When we got back to the room we noticed the front of ac/heating unit was nearly falling off. The crib that they brought to the room had a used crib sheet. We decided to live with the ac unit and called the front desk for a new crib sheet. We got our swimming stuff on and we to the pool. The indoor pool was freezing(I'm from the northwest so use to it being a little cold). When we got back to the room our crib sheet still had not been brought. We were hungry and order a pizza for take out at local place. While I was gone my wife made another call for a crib sheet. Then she noticed tiny blood spots on the main bed comforter. She call front desk again asking for new comforter. When I got back 20 minutes later the crib sheet and comforter still had not been changed and I went to front desk asking why no one was responding to our problem. They offer to switch our rooms at this point. We to be honest would have just rather stayed in first room but didn't think they could respond in timely matter to get our little one to bed. Don't know if this was just a bad night for the hotel but I definitely would not recommend it to any of my friends.

    « Not a favorite »

    We had modest expectations for this hotel, but it really fell short. On the plus side, check-in was lightening fast, and the staff was overwhelmingly pleasant at every turn. And the hotel truly is well positioned for the Canyon and for the handful of local restaurants. But that was not enough to make up for the lackluster facilities and sub-par food. Our room was very basic, but the loud refrigerator and ventilation made for fitful sleep. And the dinner buffet was -- honestly -- just awful. We were happy that our plans only included one nights' stay. I'm not sure if there are any better lodging options on the south rim, but I would rather camp outside than spend close to $300 for a night at the Best Western.

    « Nice property, location and helpful staff »

    The location was great. The property is very attractive and well kept. My interactions with the staff were always pleasant and helpful. The bungalo layout was nice, and parking was convenient. Would have preferred a ramp instead of stairs for moving luggage.

    « Outstanding!! »

    Coming from Vegas to the Canyon this was the absolute perfect place to land! Fabulous greeting, easy check-in. Clean rooms! I mean really CLEAN!! Comfy bed, great water pressure, dining and bowling alley all great. I spent some time standing by the fountain and was so comfortable in this hotel I nearly dozed off. I would and WILL be returning (say May or Oct) and know I'll have the same experience.

    « Great location and stay! »

    I cannot say enough good things about this motel. It was clean, staff helpful and friendly, weight room had lots of equipment. We had lunch at the buffet, grabbed a quick bite at pub for supper and ate breakfast at the buffet. All were very good. The location was perfect for going to the canyon.

    This hotel was close to everything, restaurants and shopping. We had super comfy beds. There was an outdoor pool and hot tub as well as a bowling alley. It was really nice having a store there for necessities.

    « Not great. Noisy. Dated. »

    Really noisy place with music blasting at the pool late into the night. We could hear people all night at the pool. Rooms were so dated. Beds were not very comfortable. Check in and check out was easy but we would not stay here again.

    « Clean, comfortable and great place for kids! »

    We only stayed one night, but had a very good experience. Our room was upgraded out of the kindess of their heart and we ended up in a king size suite. Very comfortable bed, large bathroom, and very nicely decorated. The hot tub was nice and hot and I could see how fun the hotel would be for a family with kids. Convenient to the Grand Canyon! Would highly recommend if visiting the park!

    « Great Family Amenities »

    This hotel had great amenities. Pool, hottub, arcade, bowling and 4 restaurants to choose from. The staff are great and helpful I would recommend this hotel for others we had 5 in our group, including 3 teenagers who lik we d it very much very close to the Grand Canyon entrance and walking distance to the market and imax theatre

    « Great option for visiting the Grand Canyon South Rim »

    My husband and I checked in very late at night and we were promptly greeted by a friendly check-in clerk. We were able to park by the hotel entrance closest to our room. The room was clean and large and warm. Everything about the check in and check out process was easy. The hotel is only about a 5 minute drive from the entrance to the National Park, so we were able to get there bright and early. The price was so reasonable. Would absolutely stay here again when visiting the Grand Canyon.

    « Best Option Near Grand Canyon »

    Our family stayed here for one night while visiting the Grand Canyon. The hotel is huge, with four separate buildings. The pool is large and was busy. Rooms were large and quiet over night. The hotel has three different restaurants of varying value. Breakfast is NOT free like at other Best Westerns, but for $14 you can do the buffet which adds custom omelettes and some fancy pastries above and beyond the typical free selections. The hotel is great for kids, with a fun center and bowling lanes in the lower floor. Free in-room Wifi worked well despite what I read elsewhere. The hotel was more expensive than most Best Western's, but was certainly the nicest we stayed at on our trip. The location is excellent, with about a 15 minute drive to the Canyon Village where there is plenty of free parking for exploring the rim or various trail options. Make sure to stop in Williams, Arizona if you exit out the South access road. It was a charming town about 2 hours South.

    « Really nice! »

    Wonderful two nite stay here. Comfortable two queen bed rooms with small fridge and microwave. Free wifi. Complimentary coffee and tea and juice bar in lobby. Arcade, bowling alley, two bars and two restaurants. Indoor and outdoor pools. Tons of parking and a big property with multiple buildings. Couldn't have asked for more in a Grand Canyon stay.

    « Very Dissatisfied »

    The receptionist were not friendly at all and when told about the problems I experienced in my room they acted like it was my fault. When I got up and tried to take a shower, the shower didn't work and the commode ran all night. In addition, my key to access the entrance door didn't work and I had to get the maid to let us in. I paid $289.00 for that room and there was no Continental breakfast. You had to fork out $16 per person if you wanted to eat there. We had stayed in a REGULAR BW at Page, Az the night before and it was wonderful and paid only a fraction of the cost of this PREMIER facility. All in all, I was extremely disappointed. It was definitely not worth what we paid for 8 hours of sleep.

    « Wonderful Hotel and close to the Canyon »

    We stayed three nights here, March 13-16, and found everything we needed. Our room was enormous, large bath, also a sink in the room at the vanity so we could use both at the same time. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were also nice. I liked the two sheets, with a thinner comforter between them. So much better than a big bedspread that doesn't get washed after every use. The bus for the Grand Canyon stops just in front of the hotel. Everyone was very friendly and eager to please. Even a flavored water machine by the front desk, and free! We had breakfast at the hotel and it was cheaper than the breakfast we got from McDonald's across the road! We would definitely stay here again!

    « Excellent Stay »

    During our visit to the Grand Canyon we stayed at the Best Western Squire Inn. The room was very spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bus shuttle for the Canyon stops right in from of the hotel so it is very convenient to get to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Breakfast in the morning was very good with a wide selection. I would definitely stay here if I was returning to the Grand Canyon

    « Beautiful hotel, but missing a very basic necessity »

    Location is perfect - right down the street from the south entrance to Grand Canyon. This hotel does not provide free breakfast as most Best Westerns, although they do offer a breakfast buffet for a price. There are several restaurants almost within walking distance nearby, however. The walk to and from our room was nice and the view of the lobby from the spiraling staircase was so inviting, we only took the elevator at check-in and check-out because of our suitcase. Hotel has nice entertaining features for adults and kids. When I booked this hotel, I overlooked some of the older reviews that the Wi-Fi could be improved. Obviously, this has not yet been addressed as we had to bring our laptops to the lobby, the only place Wi-Fi was working, when the hotel wasn't busy to access the hotel's Wi-Fi. This became a big issue for us as it rained while we were there and there was too much fog to even see the Canyon from any observation point. We tried to do some really needed online catch up work instead to make use of time lost but ended up leaving the hotel early because of the Wi-Fi issue. Great hotel - just a big disappointment for an upscale one such as this not to have basic Wi-Fi.

    « Great Location-Nice Decoration-Friendly Staff-Close to the Grand Canyon National Park »

    I stayed there for one night with my wife in the last week of Feb 2018. It was a cold night and we arrived late after a long drive from McCarran Airport, Las Vegas and were warmly welcomed by Genesis (Front Desk Staff). He checked us in quickly and gave direction to our room, which we appreciate much as we were tired and wanted to rest ASAP. It was Room# 0321 that we got which was in a different building (Building # 3000) across the parking lot from the lobby. The room was clean, warm and comfortable in all respect. We slept well, and there was not much sound or disturbance we heard. Teejay checked us out in the morning. Again, he too was quick and efficient. I wanted to get some coffee before we head out to the Grand Canyon National Park. While there was coffee machine in the lobby, but there was no cup at that time. Teejay was kind enough to arrange for cup and lid for me. While, at some other time this simple thing may seem rather trivial and quite expected for, yet on a cold morning when I really needed some coffee, this meant a lot for me. I truly appreciate your hospitality. My thanks go to Genesis, Teejay and Best Western Premier Grand Squire Inn in general to make our stay enjoyable. As a Best Western reward member I have stayed in many of their hotels around US and this one is undoubtedly one of their best. No wonder their tagging as premier as well placed. We stayed for one night only and did not have much time to explore the hotel. Yet, out of a brief look that we could have the hotel compound looked really nice, well decorated, well equipped with indoor pool and overall happy staffs to keep their customers happy. Restaurants on-site, available breakfast buffet (about $ 14/person) but cannot truly comment on those truly as we did not eat there. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will return here if we are back in the area. Thank you Best Western Premier Grand Squire Inn.

    « Family trip »

    This hotel had a lot of things going for it. Proximity to the park and lots of amenities- indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center, indoor arcade/game area. There's not much to do in Tusayan in the evening so the activities down stairs were nice to have. The room was just fine. Could use some updating and brightening up. Prices at a lot of the restaurants are high, there aren't many restaurant options in town.

    « Close to the park and a nice place to stay »

    This place was not what we expected. It was very nice and the quality of the rooms was high. Make sure you get a room in the main building to have easy access to the hotel facilities. It snowed when we were there which made the place look like a winter wonderland. The small town has a range of food options and the entrance to the Grand Canyon is only a short drive away. It is easy to go back and forth to the park which is a great plus.

    « Nicest place in town, loved it! »

    Traveled with another couple who stayed across the street at the grand hotel. BW wast by far nicer cleaner and the staff amazing. I especially liked Jessica who was the cashier at the amazing breakfast buffet, what a sweet funny lady! Mention u have AAA and u will get 10% discount.

    « Great Trip »

    Wonderful service, comfortable room, only downside was the expensive buffets and the hours of the food options, but no big deal because I really just needed a bed. Awesome that the fitness center and pool are open 24 hours if you want to use them.

    « Huge Hotel with Multiple Buildings »

    We enjoyed our stay and the fact that there was a soaking tub included. The HDTV programming was very sharp. When you go for ice, take your room card, so that you're not locked out. There is no complimentary breakfast.

    Hotel is close to the entrance to the Grand Canyon, shuttle even stops right out front if you don't want to drive into the park. Rooms were very nice and spacious. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious at the 2 restaurants we ate at. Having the bowling alley and arcade along with the pub made for great evening entertainment the whole family enjoyed. Highly recommend the Grand Canyon Squire Inn and will hopefully return again soon.

    « Lovely big room not far from the Grand Canyon »

    We booked a 2 night stay here as we had a tour booked at the Grand Canyon. On arrival we noticed it was only a 5 min drive to the airport and there seemed to be plenty restaurants nearby and the main event the Grand Canyon National Park was a 20min drive away. Check In We parked outside reception while we checked in. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. It was a quick process. Room Our room wasn't far from reception and there was plenty parking outside the room. We were away from the main hotel area so there was very little noise apart from traffic. The room was very large with 2 double/king beds, table and chairs, fridge, TV, safe, iron and ironing board, large wardrobe and chest of drawers. There was also a separate vanity unit opposite the wardrobe Good sized bathroom too with a lovely shower and complimentary toiletries. The bed and pillows were great. Very comfy and a great nights sleep. Hotel There were a few good restaurants in the hotel. We went to the Coronado Room for dinner. Downstairs there was a bowling alley and a bar also selling food. There was a pool but we never made use of this facility. There was also a gift shop selling postcards and magnets but some things were bit more expensive than maybe other shops. Lovely big hotel with great sized rooms and friendly staff.

    « Clean hotel »

    We stayed here three nights for touring the canyon. We were so busy at the actual canyon we didn't get to try most of the amenities at the hotel. They have comfortable beds and the room we stayed was a two queen so it was average sized. Nothing fancy. It did have a fridge and microwave which was convenient. Dogs are accepted here so keep that in mind if you don't like them. The one next to us barked at everyone in the hallway but we are dog people so we didn't freak out. It is quite a large area with different buildings depending on the type of room you purchase I suppose. Two swimming pools indoor and outdoor. Both are heated I believe. Several restaurants on site. We had breakfast at the hotel $14 each but it was good and we had lots of choices. Ask for bacon if you want it. They bring it to the table. There is a man who will also fry eggs and make inlets if you don't want scrambled eggs. With the prices at McDonald's ($20 for two) in the area we found the quality and convenient location worth the small extra price. I would stay here again. We also ate at the Squire Pub. See photos for menu.

    « Great value and fun for the entire family. »

    Haven't stayed at a Best Western in quite some time. Growing up in the 80's and 90's, my parents tried to stay at a Best Western as much as possible and I think I know why. As far as 3-star hotels go, they go out of their way to please and seem to have a very high standard. Appearance (especially the lobby area), cleanliness, spaciousness, amenities, service and location are all on the top of the list. Throw in the fact that they have a spacious indoor pool, arcade room and bowling alley (great for when you have 2 little kids like we do) and its a done deal. Wish there were more restaurants around the area but at the end of the day, Tusayan was still a good place to stay prior to the Grand Canyon and BW delivers great value for families. Keep up the great work and thanks!

    We were a family of 8 who booked two rooms. The rooms were spacious and immaculate. The beds were so comfortable. Most notable was the staff. Very genuine and caring. Genesis at check in was wonderful as was TeeJay at check out. Art- at breakfast was great too. Wish I remembered more names because they were all wonderful. We ate both dinner and breakfast at the hotel and found the food to be great! The kids were in heaven with the video arcade and pools. We braved the snow to sit in the outdoor jacuzzi. It was amazing.

    « Best place to stay near Grand Canyon »

    We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting Grand Canyon in February. Even though it was the "off" season, it was very busy at the hotel. However, the staff were extremely patient and friendly and gracious, not at all distracted or overwhelmed. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The lobby and public areas were quite lovely. The bowling alley and game room were a big hit with our children. The breakfast buffet in the Navajo Room was top-notch. The food was delicious, and the service was spectacular. A server even made my daughter a custom hot-chocolate topped with whipped cream and chocolate! We all loved our dining experience at breakfast each morning! It truly felt like a "fancy" hotel compared to the typical Best Western hotels.

    « Perfect stay while visiting Grand Canyon »

    This is a resort type of hotel. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast is good and has a decent restaurant for dinner. It was renovated and expanded quite a bit since I stayed there in 2011. It is probably the best hotel in the area. Strength of WiFi : 4/5, Very good. You can play online games without much lag. AC and USB near bed : 5/5 Yes, outlets next to bed. Shower : 3/5 Water is OK strong for shampoo with long hair.

    « Better Option than the Park Lodging »

    Nice location, 5 minutes from the entrance to the park. Much better than the lodging in the park that I have stayed at in the past. The room was big, clean and in good condition. It is a resort style hotel with a ton of amenities. The staff was friendly and acted like we were their only customers, unlike the parks lodging were no one seems to be happy.

    « Great Bargain and Friendly Staff »

    This is a great location that gets you 10 minutes from the Grand Canyon. This hotel was very comfortable with an excellent breakfast. The hotels within the Grand Canyon may be a little more convenient but they are "rustic" compared to the comfort of this hotel.

    « Just Awesome! »

    My daughter and I stayed here on a quick trip to see the Grand Canyon. We absolutely loved it here! First and foremost; the staff was so amazing! Professional, sweet, helpful and they all seemed so happy. The room was immaculate as well. Although we didn't use most of the amenities, they have everything you need right at the hotel. And, the breakfast buffet that's included was very nicely done. Although not in the park, it's literally just a few minutes to get to the Grand Canyon. We did visit during the off season, so I can imagine it gets quite busy, but the staff is so well trained I can't imagine them ever being anything less than the happy, professional crew we encountered. Well done to the entire staff. I highly recommend this hotel!

    We wanted to stay in the national park but the lodging prices were too expensive for us. This hotel is just outside the gates and was perfect. It was nicely done and the restaurant for dinner was exceptional. We really liked the fireplace in the lobby and the restaurant. It was actually perfect for us and I would definitely stay here in the future.

    Stayed in Tusayan to see the Grand Canyon, and was very pleased with this hotel. We arrived at 9:30 am (check-in is at 4 pm) and had no problem getting into our room, and even got a free upgrade. Hotel itself was slightly dated, but very clean and well laid out, and our room was great. The staff was the true highlight - from the front desk clerk (Teejay) to the buffet staff, every employee was friendly, courteous, and smiling - what a difference that makes! Highly recommend this hotel and appreciate the amazing service!

    « Great property and outstanding service! »

    The location of this hotel is very convenient to the Grand Canyon, as well as some of the local restaurants and other stores (and a Starbucks) in Tusayan. My King room was big and cozy, with a comfy bed and everything I'd need (coffee maker, refrigerator, etc...) for making myself at home. But it was the customer service that really made my stay special. The place just has a cheerful feel, and Alexis at the front desk was especially helpful. One afternoon, I needed to do a quick load of laundry (coin operated machines are available for guests), but the detergent dispensing machines (for a small fee) were all empty. Alexis immediately grabbed a couple of detergent packages for me from housekeeping... while other staff immediately restocked the dispensers ? and seemed to be having a great time together doing it! For what it's worth, their great moods really elevated the feel of the place. Their kindness made for an extra nice stay.

    « Wonderful Stay »

    We chose this hotel because it is close to the park and very reasonably priced. The staff at check in and check out were pleasant and speedy. They upgraded us because we are Diamond Members. The suite was INCREDIBLE! Totally renovated, and huge. The refrigerator didn't work and they replaced it within minutes of my call. The breakfast buffet was great, huge assortment. Restaurant staff was also nice, especially Art and Jessica! WiFi was very fast too. Pool and hot tub was nice after a day of hiking.

    « Very disappointing... »

    We stayed in Best Western hotels many times, we like the comfort of amenities and cleanliness of the facilities but not at Grand Canyon. The refrigerator wasn't working, so is the heater in the room. The tub in the bathroom didn't drain and so is sink. The bed was so uncomfortable, I could barely sleep that night and get up with a sore back. I would avoid this hotel in the future!

    We stayed two nights to visit the south rim and Page Arizona. Our room was large, clean, free Wi-Fi, coffee and tea. We got there early and we wanted to check-in, however all the rooms were booked and we couldn't check-in early. One of the staff was very kind and allowed us to use the internet, since we didn't have any service. The hotel had three restaurants, a souvenir store, bowling and a game room. Food was good and not as expensive as the other restaurants and not as packed. I would definitely stay again here and next time call the hotel directly they may give you a better discount. 928.638.2681 ext 4410 and talk to Register Perkins . Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

    « One of the best! The Grand Canyon »

    We have stayed at one of the best hotels of Best Western. We had it all including the biggest room a hotel could offer. We had a bowling alley down in the lower level of our hotel. Our food at breakfast was wonderful. The room held just less than 300 people. Even though the Grand Canyon was cold we had people from all over the world. The management and staff went out of their way to see that we were happy at all times. We felt special. We could see that all the people felt that way. We have a friend working for the parks we invited to a dinner one evening at my hotel's better restaurant. She was treated well and my entire table was given 10% off for being National Park workers. The food was very good. The wine was good. Everyone at the table was happy. The temperature was 11 degrees outside. None got cold or even thought about the weather. The waiter was great, as was the bartender, the room was cleaned always, the manager at the front desk saw to everything. When we called for help with the luggage, the man was there in two minutes.

    Given its location, this was an excellent hotel! ... Comfortable beds! Very friendly and courteous staff! We had a room with 2 queen beds and found it to be very comfortable. Our sleep quality was excellent! We didn't get to try it but we saw some people coming out of an indoor pool. It had a mini-resort vibe and we saw that there was even a bowling alley (which we unfortunately were not able to try.) There's a café on the ground floor serving hot meals! ... We liked the place! Too bad we only stayed overnight as we just took a quick visit to the Grand Canyon National Park and had to checkout the next day!

    « close to GCNP and reasonable priced »

    There were 3 of us in a standard room with 2 queen beds. The room was spacious enough taking in consideration that we spent all day in GCNP and came to the hotel just have a snack, to take a shower and sleep at night. The room has everything that it needs for such a stay. The beds were too soft for us and the pillows are a little bit bumpy, but it was fine just for three nights. We asked for a quiet room and were located in 2203 on the second floor. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. We had a couple of minor issues that were resolved immediately and reported back to us. In general, if you're going to visit GCNP - this is a convenient place to stay. A good 3 star hotel to stay if you are not extremely demanding.

    « Good but not excellent »

    We spent 3 nights here in January 2018. The hotel is nice and well laid out. I was surprised to notice that most of the fireplaces used real wood, not fake gas flames. It was a nice rustic touch. Our check in experience was good although I'm glad that I wasn't the person that called the front desk that was put on hold and was still on hold when we left 5 minutes later. The breakfast buffet is great, a wide selection of food. Too bad it couldn't stay open a bit longer as it closes at 9:30am. Oh well, that made us get up and get started on our day. They have an outdoor and indoor hot tub and pool. We were told that both pools were heated but when we hopped into the outdoor pool on a dare I would swear that it is only heated enough to keep it from freezing solid. Holy crap was it cold. If you're going in January avoid the outdoor pool, use the inside pool or the hot tub. It's also nice that they have a bowling alley and arcade in the building but it would be nice if it stayed open a bit later than 10:00 pm. But if you want to get up in time for breakfast then I guess you need to get to bed early too. My biggest complaint is about the cleaning staff. We left empty cans and a newspaper on the floor by the door so they would take them from the room but they did not. They were left for two days so I found a cleaning cart and threw them out myself. Would I stay here again? You bet.

    « Great room, convenient to GC »

    The room was above average. I did not enjoy the loud hallway (make of stone bricks, of all things. Great for echoing sound.) Went to the hotel pub and sat for a quite while before being acknowledged by wait staff. Ended up leaving and going to local restaurant. The other staff (front desk and housekeeping) were superior.

    « Not bad and location pretty good »

    Not one of my favorites. Didn't help that we couldn't get into our room without nearly knocking the door down. Apparently the security latch was broken. We had to call maintenance to fix it. They simply removed it. The lobby gives you a sense of updated decor...the hallways and rooms, not so much. Very dated decor; typical hotel "smell", and teeny-tiny bathroom. Could barely move around. Water pressure was also very low.

    « Great hotel for staging multiple days into the Grand Canyon »

    I have stayed here for work meetings at the Canyon. The hotel is about 5 minutes away from the South Rim main gate to the canyon and has multiple different restaurants, from fast, casual food in the pub to sit down dining in the Coronado Room. There are multiple buffet locations as well. The hotel is being refurbished and refreshed, so some halls of rooms are not available. The main building is open with space inside between twisting spiral staircases between levels. In the basement is a bowling alley and kids arcade along with a nice waterfall that spans multiple levels. I prefer the rooms in the main building, but there are some outbuildings with rooms too. The rooms are nice if a bit basic overall, but you are not here to hang out in your room - you are here to sleep, clean up, eat and get back to the Canyon. You pay a bit more for the hotel compared to what it would cost in a large city as there are only so many hotels in Tusayan.

    I could not believe the hospitality here. The ENTIRE staff was beyond friendly. You think the everyone is fed happy pills. Over the top helpful, and definitely want to take care of their guests. I can tell that these people want to be there because the love what they do, and not just because it's a job. I WILL be back here, but next time I will stay longer because I like how spoiled I felt. So many things to do here without even leaving the facility. Bowling, arcade, cocktail lounge, and restaurant, and more. It's a getaway for sure even if you don't see the Grand Canyon.

    We enjoyed staying in the town of Tusayan while visiting the Grand Canyon. It is a short but nice drive to the park. The hotel was very nice. The rooms were large and clean with Kuerig coffee makers. It felt like a much more luxurious hotel than I was expecting for the price. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice and they do have a bowling alley in the main building. My only complaint would be the lack of free breakfast as I have come to expect from Best Westerns. But, we would definitely stay here again if we return.

    My honey booked a suite & we stayed 2 nights. This hotel room was HUGE! It had a separate sitting room with tv, couch & 2 chairs, & a kitchenette. The bathroom was fantastic, with an enclosed toilet, jacuzzi tub & separate shower. The pool area was marvelous. The only snag: we originally only booked 1 night. My husband spoke to the front desk & booked another night. We arrived back from a day at the Grand Canyon only to find our room keys did not work. Needless to say, about 1 hour later, it was "straightened out". Communication is lacking because English is not the first language of most of the employees, or so it seemed. I asked for water while we waited & I was not understood.

    I booked a few rooms after my group decided to take a road trip to the Grand Canyon from Vegas. There were not many rooms left in the hotel so I booked quickly. I wasn't expecting much only a clean place to stay. Boy was I surprised. Check in was incredibly efficient the rooms were clean and well decorated. The staff was incredibly helpful and courteous with all aspects of our stay. On top of everything the location was perfect to access the park. While I normally like higher end hotels I was extremely happy that I did not pay 2 to 3 times more to stay at a hotel that undoubtedly would've had less. We will definitely stay here again

    « An excellent hotel....just a few areas to improve »

    We were very pleasantly surprised with the size of the room, the comfort of the beds and the amenities. The room was very well thought out and nicely appointed. The few things that we noticed that could be improved upon were: - The cleaning staff didn't replenish the shampoo/conditioner during the two nights we spent there in spite of us obviously using up the previous ones. - Our wet wash cloths and used hand towels were not removed and/or replenished. We understand the "throw it on the ground" idea, but a wadded wet wash cloth in the bathtub should be replaced. - We found an empty toilet paper roll behind the toilet that had been there from a previous guest. None of the above diminished our enjoyment of our room. The main hotel restaurant, The Coronado Room however, definitely left us unimpressed. I will leave a separate review on this, but this restaurant is very overpriced for the service and food quality provided. The Pub was great for happy hour and the bartenders were very friendly.

    We stayed 3 nights in the main building, in a bigger room with a king bed, and loved it. The room was big, clean, nicely furnished, and had a great shower. We could have stayed in the national park, but we chose this instead and I'm glad we did - we got more bang for our buck. And the drive into the park from this hotel, at this time of year, was a non-issue. I liked the big lobby - it made me think I was at a resort hotel, not a Best Western. We had dinner once in the restaurant and the food was good (salmon cooked perfectly). The breakfast was great - $13 and worth it.

    Now let's not get carried away, this place is not the Ritz, but they did a very good job al round, and we would recommend a couple of nights to accompany your trip to the Grand Canyon. The time from the hotel to the Grand Canyon by car is about 15 mins, tops. They have well equipped clean rooms and in the Coronado Room, they have a passable dinner, with modestly priced wines. It is old fashioned, without glitz, glamour or style, but they do a great job. It's probably the best in Tusayan? We were recommended in the first place and we are passing on the recommendation. The buffet breakfast is cheap, but more of a military canteen style. We used it one morning and McDonald's the next - enough said! Enjoy the Canyon, it's amazing!

    Hotel is lovely. Front desk recommends their restaurant as the best in town. They are the worst. There appears to be an issue between the bartender and the waitstaff. The waitstaff appears to be trying hard but we saw no effort by the bartender. The result is with no drinks being served to all the restaurant patrons. We're on vacation and don't wish to get involved. However, the manager also doesn't wish to get involved. It took him at least 20 minutes to arrive. By that point, we were enjoying a lovely meal down the street at the Mexican restaurant. When we arrived back at the hotel, the manager simply stated that our feedback was interesting. Interesting really? This is not how we wish to spent our vacation.

    « Great Stay Here In Tusayen »

    Could have had 4 1/2-5 stars except for the below stated issues. First off, we stayed here based on TA reviews. We booked an oversized king w/sofa. This room does not always appear on their website. The room was clean and well appointed, EXCEPT for something that is so vital to all of us. There are no convenient USB chargers. I believe there may be one on the side of the table that doubles as a desk, but for us we need one bedside. We use our iPads in bed up until it's time for sleep, then put them on the nightstand to charge overnight. Lazy? Yes. Convenience? Yes, we want it. Our bedside clock did not work and it was replaced the following day. In my way of thinking, this should have been brought to maintenances attention. By housekeeping. The room has a fridge, which did not run very cold, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, although ours did not function properly. It was putting a lot of grounds into our coffee. Nice compliment of toiletries, the towels are older towels, separate sink and vanity outside of the bath/shower room. Combination tub/shower (deepest tub I've ever seen), the tub faucet is a bit quirky to operate. elongated toilet a definite plus. Assuming that toilet paper is biodegradable, I often wonder why the thin toilet paper is so popular when you need to use 3-4 times as much as the same thicker, quality paper. Plenty of free parking and lots of convenient handicapped parking for those needing it. Although, the hotel rates were very reasonable, here in November, nothing else in the area is. Food is very expensive and 87 octane gas is $3.49 per gallon. We're informed that the off season population is about 375, that explains the price gouging. Get em while you can. Bring your USB chargers and cables with you as you can't find any here or, if you do, you'll pay dearly. The front desk staff were polite, but our guy was not familiar with Service Dog regulations. He thought that he might have to charge us extra or move our room. He ended up needing to speak with his manager then informed me all was well. There is a concierge available, also. I really wanted to give this review 4 stars due to the nice rom, but due to the issues, I cannot. Finally, our room keys wouldn't work as we were trying to enter the building from an exterior door. Frustration and a bit more as I walked around to the front of the building to wait in line at the front desk. Is it that difficult to enter a proper date on the electronic cards? The Coronado restaurant within the hotel is a solid four star establishment that I've reviewed separately.

    « Good hotel, close to Grand Canyon South Rim Entrance »

    We stayed here for one night as we visited the Grand Canyon South Rim. Accommodation in the GC Village might be preferred, but is somewhat more expensive and often requires advance planning, which was not suitable for us. We stayed in this hotel and it is only a less than 10 minutes by car to the South entrance of GC. Tusayan offers a lot of restaurants, gas station, supermarket etc. Hotel was very comfortable, though we found it a bit more expensive than expected. Good service, very friendly reception service, in-hotel shop, accommodating lobby, free 24/7 coffee/tea service, in-hotel dining options, in- and outdoor swimming pool, free parking. Funny thing is that we got the "smallest room", which still contained 2 kingsize beds, a desk, microwave, fridge, bathroom, sitting area etc. Lovely view from the room towards forest. Hotel is very close to Grand Canyon Airport and organizing of tours (by air or land), can be organized in the lobby.

    What a great place to stay. Just a short drive to the Grand Canyon Village. Employees and staff at this hotel are very accommodating and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and well looked after!!! Will return to this spot for sure!!!!

    « Comfortable, good location »

    This comfortable hotel is just outside the Grand Canyon Nation Park, and the free shuttle bus stops just outside. You need to buy a park pass in advance to use the bus. The WiFi was good and the room spacious and comfortable. Tusayan shops and eateries are a very short walk from the hotel, which is also close to Grand Canyon Airport. The hotel has a coin-operated laundry for guests, a huge advantage for families like us on a road trip. We had a small water leak in the bathroom, which the friendly and efficient staff quickly fixed even though it was late at night.

    « Great place to stay near the Canyon »

    Stayed at this hotel on our trip to the Grand Canyon. Booked 2 rooms. Dog friendly!!! Everything was clean and updated. It is a very large hotel with a huge fitness room and an indoor and outdoor pool. The breakfast buffet was the largest we've had at a hotel and included an omelet station. We tried the bowling alley down in the game room and had so much fun we did it again the next night. The lounge/bar was comfortable and served good food.

    « Excellent service and very clean »

    We stayed in a two-room suite with bar. The room was very large even for a suite. The bath room was enormous. The suite was very clean and it was well appointed. The thing that struck us the most was a sense that every employee appeared committed to a high level of customer service and satisfaction. It is not a luxury hotel but it is definitely business class. There were only two negatives we encountered. The high-speed WIFI internet was spotty and sporadic. The second negative was that the background music in the hallway seemed really loud in the room and they played the music maybe all night.

    « Not what we expected »

    We only stayed here one night while visiting the Grand Canyon. We did not feel like the room was very clean at all, also the room was very outdated and musty smelling. We decided to do the buffet at the hotel restaurant , it was awful. Basically hamburger helper and macaroni and cheese, Im happy we only stayed one night ! i would not stay here again !

    « Good option »

    If you can't get a reservation in the park this is a great option in Tusayan. Park entry is good for 7 days and you have to stop every time you enter, the lines can get long at the entry gate. We did not have to wait early in the day (before 9am) but in the afternoon had a line. Hotel has lots of amenities like an indoor pool but we did not use any of them.

    We regularly bring house guests to the Grand Canyon and so far this has been our hotel of choice. Everything is clean and efficient, the staff are courteous and helpful. We didn't try breakfast this time due to a bad experience during our last stay and also the fact that our friends had an early morning helicopter ride booked. I feel the rooms could do with a bit of updating but all in all, there was nothing to complain about!

    Clean rooms and nice indoor and outdoor pool area's. Check in early if go to the Grand Canyon to view the sunset(Worth it) if you wait the hotel will fill up fast and you may not get a room. The hotels in Williams are mostly lower budget types.

    Stayed here for 2 nights, nice hotel and a good room with microwave and fridge. Had the buffet meal one night plenty of choice. Nice area with shops and restaurants and I Max cinema a few doors away. Very near the airport for helicopter flights over the Grand Canyon (didn't do this as it was too windy).Shuttle bus outside the door for the Grand Canyon, we did a 7 mile walk along the south rim, but plenty of bus stops along the way if you don't want to walk.

    « The indoor pool is what sold me on making the reservation here »

    The indoor pool was good, the hot tub was better. Exterior looks swanky for a BW, but once inside the rooms areas, it's just a BW. If at all possible, eat elsewhere. The food here is so generic, you may as well eat in a school cafeteria. It's Grand Canyon, so paying a lot of money for location. Staff was friendly.

    « Great Staff and Perfect Location »

    The second we walked into the lobby, we knew we had picked the right place to lay our heads. Katlyn was very professional and courteous, ensuring we knew the amenities that the hotel had to offer. The room; linens, shower, fridge and even the sink were all clean and tidy. Further, we were just down the road (walking distance) from EVERYTHING short of the actual Canyon, which was a straight shot once out of the parking lot. Thanks

    « Decent place to stay during your Grand Canyon Visit »

    Tusayan is mainly a "passers by" town with standard hotels and places eat. Amongst the options to stay outside de national park this hotel seemed as a good choice. It offers large rooms and clean and convenient facilities with good service, but nothing more to expect. Must menton that the food at the restaurant deserves a try. Ours was quite good.

    Burned by a tacky night in Las Vegas, what a nice place this hotel ended up being. I can understand the comments that this is a far cry from staying in a lodge but isn't that rather obvious? Service was really nice as were facilities. Good room for 1 couple and 1 adult.

    The hotel doesn't look promising from the outside but once inside you are transformed into a luxury hotel. Fine dining, buffet and complete with a sports bar.

    « Functional hotel if visiting Grand Canyon »

    If can't stay inside the Grand Canyon park, this hotel serves its purpose as a functional next best option. It is less than a 5 minute drive from the park entrance. The rooms are reasonably sized, and the property has indoors & outdoor pools, a hot tub, large game room and bowling alley. That said, the housekeeping service was below par when we stayed here (there was a dirty coffee container when we arrived in the room & they forget to refill varies toiletries during our stay.) The food and service at the main restaurant was also lacking; the dishes were oily and missing flavor. I would stay here again if visiting the Grand Canyon, but only if I couldn't get into one of the lodging sites inside the park and I definitely would not eat dinner at the hotel.

    « Very pleasant stay for grand canyon »

    I stayed at this hotel for two nights as a gateway to grand canyon park which is 15minutes away. The rooms are nicely,clean and quiet at night. The Hotel has even three restaurants for each budget and offers free parking for guests. Would stay here again.

    « Nice home base »

    This is a good location within miles of the park entrance. The shuttle from this location to the park stops at the end of Sept but it is only a short drive to the park. The concierge will help with maps or tour arrangements. The hotel has spacious rooms, large bathrooms and comfortable sitting areas. Three dining areas in house not counting the basement pub which has food items also give options for just about any meal. Proximity to local restaurants within walking or short driving distance yield more pricing and menu options. Nice, comfortable, good location.

    « Very pleasant stay I would recomend »

    I think this hotel offers something for everyone in the food department, the 1st night we ate in the Coronado Room Restaurant with a full waiter service and the food was of very good quality, we have fresh tuna seared with sesame seeds and asked for just pink and it was spot on and tasted fab, I had steak and my partner had buffalo both fab, the only slight down was the chocolate cake pudding was dry, but the rest of the meal was really superb, it is on the slight price side but the service is great. The next night we had walked the rim of the Grand Canyon, so was both tired and hungry and wanted something quick so chose the Buffet dinner at a set price we were not expecting too much, but was so pleasantly surprised, the selection and quality of food was very good, Our room was very large and very clean and we enjoyed a lovely stay thank you.

    « Not quite as good as our previous stay »

    Four years on and our second stay. The rooms were starting to look a little tired and the bed was a little soft. Problem with coffee machine was rectified very promptly, but the noise of AC was bad - had to pull the plug as the setting options were poor. The lift had a strange burnt out motor smell which was reported and supposedly investigated but the smell remained. Laundry facilities were good. The location is great for South Rim.

    « Good location outside Grand Canyon National Park »

    The BW Squire Inn was a large complex with several restaurants, gift shop, bars and even a bowling alley/arcade. Spacious 2 Q bed room with table, 2 chairs, desk chair and seated make up area complete with magnifying mirror (nice!). Large bathroom w/jetted tub. Approximately a 10 minute ride to parking lots right outside the canyon rim. Nothing prepares you for the sheer magnitude and depth of this natural wonder. $30 for a 1 - 7 day entrance pass. We stayed 4 nights. During our stay we dined at the dinner buffet, with lots of selections, and the pub for lighter fare. Extensive breakfast buffet $13 pp, and great made to order omelets. Comfortable, quiet room. Family friendly. Tour booking group in the lobby. We booked the plane ride over the east rim to Page (great view), and Antelope Canyon (spectacular photo opportunity) on the Navajo reservation and a 15+ mile still water rafting trip down the Colorado river around Horseshoe Bend (this is before the Colorado enters the GC, not in the GC. The return ride was via bus, which stopped at Cameron Trading post, a huge souvenir shop that included many Native American crafts. There were a fair amount of eateries walking distance or short drive from our hotel. Elk sightings/coyote in the park and around the hotel. We traveled May 23 - May 28. We felt this was the perfect amount of time to explore at our leisure. Great weather at the Canyon, mid 70s- low 80s. Temp drops quickly at night by about 30 degrees. Hotel had many amenities we did not use. We were disappointed the large fire pit was never lit during our stay, as it would have been nice to enjoy a beverage around the fire. This was the only con. Staff was friendly and accommodating, rooms made up quickly. Staying outside the park was fine given the short ride, and there are more dining options than inside the park. We had flown into Phoenix and driven to Sedona for a 3 night stay at the BW Arroyo (great!) before heading to GCNP. On our way to GCNP, we took a short side trip to meteor crater, which was well worth the detour. On our way back to Phoenix, we stopped in Williams for the iconic Route 66 experience. In hindsight, we should have driven down during our stay at GCNP as we were pressed for time. Williams has preserved the hey day heritage of Route 66, and it was a great slice of Americana. The Squire Inn was clean, comfortable, and accommodating. A very pleasant stay...and the Grand Canyon should definitely be on your bucket list. Truly awe inspiring.

    « Pleasant stay »

    It?s a huge hotel well located to visit the Grand Canyon. There are different types of rooms. The superior ones are big, well and modern furnished. The two king-size beds make it possible to spend some nights with four persons. The cheaper rooms are big as well but the furniture and carpets are worn. The one we saw smelt strangely. The hotel also have an indoor and an outdoor pool. Moreover there is a well equipped gym. During our stay the staff at the front desk was somewhat unfriendly and we had to discuss to get the room standard we have booked.

    Nothing spectacular for the price paid. It does have the benefit of being close to the entrance to the Grand Canyon park. The room was clean and large. Staff were helpful. Another hotel where you have a number of small lights in the room and all have to be on before to get the room lit.

    « Amazing Stay »

    This hotel is impressive. My husband and I stayed here for two nights while on our road trip to all the National Parks. I can't possibly say enough about our stay. Our room (in the main building) was amazing (I didn't see any pictures of it on this site).... it was huge with kitchen, huge bathroom (separate shower and jetted sunken bathtub), separate vanity/sink for the women, separate toilet room, living room, desk area, and fabulous king bed. They have an on sight laundry facility with four washers and four dryers with a t.v. (if you care to sit and wait on your laundry), and kept very clean. We ate both nights while we were there at the main restaurant. Yes, there are other places to go eat (in town), but our first meal was so good that we decided to eat there again....and they didn't disappoint. The breakfast buffet was not your typical hotel breakfast....they had everything..including a chef making omelets of your choosing. The decor throughout the hotel is beautiful. The staff from the manager(s) to housekeeping to the waiters/waitresses, hostess staff, and anyone in-between were all extremely nice. We were spoiled and the rest of the places we stayed on our trip didn't come close...not even a little. Job well done BW Grand Canyon Squire Inn. We wish we could have stayed longer. AND....no, I have no affiliation with this hotel or any other BW.

    Was initially unsure staying at this hotel having previously been to the amazing El Tovar inside the Grand Canyon however from the moment i parked the car my mind was completely changed. The Lobby was spacious but homely and the staff extremely welcoming. I was grateful for the upgrade on arrival and found the rooms to be very spacious. There are many restaurants nearby but there is a few restaurants on site also and the hotel is just outside the park 10-15 minutes drive from the Visitors Centre and some of the best views i have ever seen!!

    « Detached Motel - Outside Entrance - Overpriced, Small, Old Room »

    We booked not realizing that the "hotel" bought up all the small motels that were close and painted them the same color as the main property. We are in a dumpy building - dark, cannot read the building numbers or room numbers. Entrance to room is direct from the outside like the old "Knight's Inn". There is insufficient parking. We had to park illegally. It is an outrageous price for a very basic motel room. You will have to carry your bags up a few outdoor steps. It feels unsafe - not adequately lit. Very disappointing. Dinner buffet is expensive and food had been sitting for some time. Restaurant said they were booked when there were at least 10 tables sitting open. If you choose to stay here, be sure you are getting a room in the main hotel or go down the road to the Holiday Inn Express. Otherwise you are paying $250 per night for a motel room.

    « Make sure you know what you are getting. »

    When you reserve a room, make sure they understand what type of room you need and how many beds. I thought I reserved a suite but found out it was one room with two beds and a table and 2 chairs in a corner. We had to upgrade to an actual suite costing an additional $50.00 which took the room to over $300.00 and when we got to the nice, roomy suite, found there was only one bed and when checking in, the check in person knew there were three of us - me, my husband and my cousin. We weren't going to pay more so for three nights, my cousin slept on a rollaway that wasn't very comfortable. Other than that, the suite was nice, clean and roomy. Just watch communication when you make reservations.

    This hotel is in an excellent location for visiting the Grand Canyon as there is a shuttle bus that takes you straight into the park.

There is a bar serving bar meals and two other restaurants catering for different budgets. Staff were very friendly and helpful. There are lots of other restaurant choices around the town. One drawback is the helicopters; flights start very early in the morning from the adjacent heliport and are very loud. Also be aware of the cold outside at night even in August.

    « Restaurant Debacle »

    The room itself was okay, but could definitely use an update. The toilet was weird, and I had to wonder what would happen if the water splashed since there was a large sticker warning us not to have contact with it. The real issue was breakfast and the restaurant. Not all of us are early risers, so we missed the breakfast upstairs. We ate in the restaurant. We told the waiter twice to hold the gravy because one of us has a dairy allergy. I ordered my eggs over medium. My eggs came out sunnyside up, and there was gravy all over the other plate. We spoke up & the waiter said he didn't hear us tell him to hold the gravy. I repeated the conversation for him, and instead of taking the plate and remaking the meal, he goes and asks if there's any milk in the milk gravy. He returns and assures us there is no milk, only cornstarch and water. Well, my son, trusting that he is, ate most of it before I had a chance to taste it. You don't get that flavor from cornstarch and water. The waiter comes over again, sees I haven't eaten most of my eggs and asks about them. I told him that I ordered over medium (which is creamy, not runny), and these were sunnyside. He agrees & has the eggs remade. He brings out over easy eggs this time, still runny. We went to pay the bill and the lady at the register asked how it was. I told her everything I just typed here and she said the gravy does indeed have a milk product in it, and agreed the eggs should've been right. Instead of comping the whole meal though, considering all the trouble we had, and were about to be going through, she only gave us a discount.

To be honest, our expectations were not high, having had previous stays in Best Western hotels that were memorable for all the wrong reasons. This hotel however was a very pleasant surprise. Friendly, welcoming and helpful staff, large pleasant rooms and numerous amenities (2 pools, pub and restaurant on site for example). The shuttle bus to the park stopped right outside the hotel and this was definitely the hassle free way to visit the Grand Canyon. On reflection Tusayan was probably a better base for us, travelling with three teens, as we were able to take in a movie at the imax theatre and have different dining options (these are not extensive in Tusayan, but more than in the park itself). We ate breakfast in the a la carte breakfast room (a buffet option is also available). All in all, we would be very happy to stay at the Squire Inn again.

    Their deluxe suites are so comfortable, you could live there. We had a broken refrigerator when we checked in. The staff was exceptional to remedy the situation.Within 10 minutes we had a new one. Would definitely stay there again. Hotel location, staff and rooms are exceptional.

    A very good choice that is close to the Grand Canyon area (Much better than another place I stayed in Tusayan during the previous year). Has several dining choices that have decent pricing. Spent only one night. The Tusayan area is quite pricey since it is so convenient to the Grand Canyon; beware of the prices at MacDonald's and the local gas stations. Definitely get gas somewhere else.

    « BEST PREMIER HOTEL AT GRAND CANYON »

    The hotel is at the entrance of the park. So, need to drive to have the views of the Grand Canyon. But its exterior itself is very pleasant. The Hotel per se is only two storeyed, and doesnt look like a typical hotel. Very nice rooms, well maintained. Even for entrance to the corridors leading to the room, one needs the room key! So, security is ensured. Ice cube dispenser is for free, in the corridor. Parking is very spacious. Reception is very tastefully done - introducing to the details of a Cowboy life. Con: For us Indians, who love to have tea, there were no tea bags, despite requesting them. Dairy whitener or milk is not available or given in the rooms. Yes, in the reception lobby one can have coffee with dair whitener! Overall, good memorable stay at the hotel. We opted to extend our stay by one night :)

    The hotel is placed just at the beginning of the main street in Tusayan. The rooms are quite big and with all the facilities, you need. There is a pool area with pools both outside and inside. There are a couple of restaurants and they cover a wide Price Range. The service is excellent and the staff really helpful. Very recommendable for especially families.

    Beautiful location and service was good.. Things were way overpriced in this small town. Biggest problem was there was no internet at all. We were on a long road trip and needed to book things and were unable. Only ate at the lounge and food was average. Stayed at several BW on our trip and this one was the most expensive and least impressive.

    Stayed there for one night earlier this week. I knew going in that we would get the old rooms, as the newer ones were all booked up.

    « Excellent location but expensive »

    Top tip for reserving a room in the Best Western Premier in Tusayan is to contact the hotel by email requesting a room in building 7. This building is brand new and as such is pristine. The hotel itself is a 5 minute drive to the park entrance. Also for convenience a shuttle bus to and from the Grand Canyon stops outside this property. Staying in Tusayan gives visitors a great option of driving into the park to witness both sunrise and sunset without having to travel a great distance- this is so worthwhile- a spectacular sight. This is why hotels in Tusayan can charge as much as they do. Staying in this Best Western cost as much as a 4 or even 5 star hotel in Vegas. It is overpriced but you're paying for location, location, location!! All hotels in Tusayan are expensive and if I was staying again I would absolutely book Best Western above any of the others on offer. The rooms here are extremely spacious with very comfortable beds. Likewise the bathroom was big with a spacious glass door shower. The accommodation was extremely clean. For convenience there's a sink unit, fridge and coffee maker in the room. Coffee is a welcome option given that breakfast is not included in the room rate. This hotel also boasts 2 pools, an indoor and outdoor and a bowling alley. Everything in Tusayan shuts at 10pm, so these facilities are an added attraction. The staff are all very friendly, welcoming and informative. Andrea checked us in and after a 4 hour drive from Vegas it was nice to be met with such a warm welcome. Overall a really good experience but would prefer to pay a lower rate.

    « A good option for staying outside the park »

    We spent three nights at the Squire Inn and were overall pleased with our stay. The room was clean and accommodated a rollaway bed. The bathroom was spacious and modern. We had a newly renovated room in the 7000 building. The hotel has a nice pool area and arcade for the kids. We ate at the breakfast buffet twice, but skipped the last morning as it was a bit pricey. It does have a very good omelette station and a make your own waffle station also. The staff was very friendly overall. The one negative was that on the first morning, we returned to our room after breakfast and housekeeping was already in our room. It was only 8:30 so I didn't expect they would start so early. When we told her that we needed to get ready to go out she responded "That's OK, I can clean with you here" and continued to strip the bathroom of towels and clean it. We had to wait to go out as we need to use the room before heading out. So after that we left the Do Not Disturb sign on the door until we left for the day. It is a good location right outside the entrance to the South Rim and offers upgraded amenities. Just beware that the wifi is slow when it is at peak use hours.

    Less than 2 miles to the entrance of Grand Canyon. We wanted to watch The Sundet and The Sunrise so we selected to stay two nights at the hotel. The guy in the front desk is super nice and friendly. But the room keeper didn't do a nice job, even didn't change one of the trash bin. So we didn't know if she or he really cleaned the whole room.

    « Unfortunate »

    The location to the Canyon is fabulous and the room is fine- clean, comfy beds and plenty of space for 3pp. Unfortunately the food outlets were terrible. The Squire was in the basement and lacked any atmosphere, and the food was not good at all. This was on top of a bar filled with some regulars that were swearing non-stop. We kept hoping that the bartender would notice kids in the room and ask them to keep it down, which did not happen. Overall it felt like the hotel had a captive audience of Canyon travelers and hospitality was not high on the priority list.

    Spent 2 nights here while visiting Grand Canyon. Large property with rooms split between multiple buildings (each 2-3 stories) with a pool (both indoor and out) area in the center. Plenty of close-by parking make it easily accessible. The pool area is decent size, also has a bar next to it. Rooms are spacious and clean, 2 sinks, one outside the bathroom. Large tub with shower. Small arcade and bowling area in one of the buildings makes it fun for kids too. No complaints about this place but price was about $300/night in July.

    Great hotel choice just outside of the Grand Canyon with exceptional customer- oriented staff and great all-around hotel services on site. Transportation to the Grand Canyon was easy! Just walk a few steps in front of the hotel to the bus stop for the Grand Canyon bus to pick you up or drop you off every 15 to 20 minutes all day long until about 9 PM. No need to hassle with the parking congestion at the Grand Canyon!

Front desk staff were great with special credit and thanks to Felix, who checked us in.

    « Great location, good rooms but the rest needs a renovation »

    The hotel may be the most convenient location if you're visiting the South Rim of the Grand Canyon BUT the hotel itself is showing it's age a bit much. The layout of the facility is nice. There are great facilities for families, dining, drinks and entertainment in the basement. The staff are very nice. The rooms are clean and kind of new but the breakfast room was kind of creaking when folks would walk by. They also couldn't figure out what eggs over medium are like for some reason. Another plus? It's near the airport, so it's a good place if you intend to take a helicopter tour.

    « Highs and Lows »

    This is located in a great area if you're visiting the Grand Canyon. It's obvious that they've invested a lot of money in upgrades to the hotel. The pool area has been completely renovated (outdoor and indoor pool) and there's a nice outdoor bar and a new gym. All of these things are really nice. Pros: very spacious room with a fridge and microwave. Quiet room. Nice front desk staff and overall everyone that worked there was friendly and helpful. Lows: outdoor pool was murky and you couldn't see the bottom of the pool. Hot tub in the indoor pool area was super foamy. The Coronado restaurant was a disappointment. We sat down to eat and waited close to 20 minutes for a waiter. One never came, so we left and ate at another restaurant in town. Despite these things, we'd stay here again, but could be great if these minor things were fixed.

    This hotel is located a couple of miles outside of the Grand Canyon National Park.They have a very nice pool/patio area and a good buffet for dinner. They also have a free shuttle that takes you to inside of the park but we decided to drive to the park instead. It is a little pricey but that is probably because of the area. It is a very nice place to stay and I would stay here again if we visit the Grand Canyon area again.

    « Depressing and dingy »

    Second time visiting the Grand Canyon. Booked this hotel because I heard another hotel wasn't good and this was ranked high for the town. First of all, the hotel itself is absolutely basic. Second, it's not executed well. It feels old and worn. The hallways are dark and have a funny smell. There is some new furniture here and there, but overall the buildings are shot. Lots of signs of wear and tear. It feels like you're in a shoddy 70s motel by the highway. If you are used to staying in luxury hotels, you will not be pleased here. It's not even a basic hotel that you can just get by in. Not sure you have any other options in this town worth trying. Left early and drove directly to Sedona. The real icing on the cake here was they charge almost 300 per night which is absolutely outrageous. This should 100 per night maximum. Anything more is completely unfair. Don't waste your money. If you're planning a trip out here, look into Zion in Utah, where the hotels are much better condition and the food is better overall. Almost every experience we had in Tusayan was awful. It's worth seeing once, but the hotel experience is definitely lacking.

    My family and I just enjoyed some time at the Grand Canyon and this is where we chose to stay. I honestly cannot say enough about how wonderful the hotel was. The rooms were clean, well-maintained and nicely decorated. All of the staff were courteous, friendly and helpful. The night that we arrived we enjoyed a pizza in the bar area and found it to be absolutely delicious. We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet each morning and found it a good value for your money. We stayed in one of the newer sections of the hotel, building seven. I would definitely recommend it for those who are looking for a quiet environment. My only complaint would be that it appears that the air conditioning utilizes motion sensors to detect whether you are in the room or not. This is a wise decision for energy efficiency but does tend to work against you if you are sleeping.... still, the temperature that is the default for the air-conditioner was reasonable just not as low as we normally enjoy. If you were looking for a nice, comfortable hotel that is located conveniently to lots of restaurants as well as shopping, this is a wonderful choice!

    I didn't stay at the hotel, but I did go to the buffet. They had an Italian buffet for only $12. There was no sign, we just walked in out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised. The food was Italian themed and was fantastic! The staff was very kind, specifically 'Art' kept comming to our table, then we had a friendly conversation, told us jokes and travel advice for the grand canyon.

    « Very nice room, a few quirks »

    As we were three adults traveling together, we booked a suite for a four-night stay. The suite had a good-sized sitting room with a pull-out sofabed and room for a rollaway. It has a wet bar with a refrigerator. There's also a small powder room off the sitting room. The bedroom was very large, with a king bed and a vanity with itw own sink. The bath was enormous, with a large jetted tub, a separate walk-in shower, a large sink area, and a separate private toilet space, with a bidet. There were some quirks. As mentioned there is a vanity in the bedroom, but the only lighting is a ceiling fixture behind the vanity, which made it difficult to see yourself in the mirror. The walk-in shower is very large, but there was no soap dish, nor any place to put a wash cloth, other than a bench at the opposite end of the shower from the shower head. Overall, it seems like the designers could have paid a little more attention to the details. The hotel's location is excellent, less than 10 minutes from the Grand Canyon NP entrance station. Unless you're staying in the park itself, you couldn't have a better location. The National Park Service runs a shuttle bus into the park that stops directly in front of the hotel, so you don't have to deal with the hassle of finding a parking spot in the village area inside the park. The hotel has all the expected amenities (swimming pool, etc.), and some unexpected ones (e.g. a bowling alley). The only meals we ate in the hotel restaurant were breakfasts. The food was good and the service quick and friendly. Other eating options in Tusayan, other than fast-food places, are scarce. Overall, this hotel was a comfortable and convenient base for our Grand Canyon adventure.

    « They won us over.... »

    I was predisposed to dislike this property as given it's price the lack of an include breakfast bothered me a bit but having stayed there for a couple of days with a family I can't help but highly recommend it. It is an expansive property encompassing at least 3 buildings surrounding a central courtyard with pool, whirlpool, artificial turf play area, pool bar and splash pad area for kids to run through without going through the pool. There is also an indoor pool and whirlpool. The staff were wonderful and helpful throughout. We ate at the breakfast buffet one day and while they did charge by 5 year old a reduced price I still found the quality and choice to be expansive (perhaps a bit excessive to be honest). The servers were attentive throughout adding value to the experience. We also tried the dinner buffet one night and while it was pretty average food they didn't charge anyone below 7 so that lessened the blow a bit. I'll also have to take away family friendly points for the fact that the bathroom only had a shower rather than a bath. In contrast, we found the expansive sink area and overall quality of room appointments (and size) to be very family friendly. We didn't try the fitness center nor did we venture over to the bowling alley. Overall, a great place for families to use as a base for visits to the Grand Canyon.

    Well, we were supposed to stay in the nicer rooms according to the desk person, but couldn't give us a king bed for the nights we were there (not sure why, we booked a long time ago). So we stayed in the older part of the property. Which was fine. Clean, not old or shabby at all. Pipes between our unit and the adjoining were LOUD though all night. Not sure what that was about. The new indoor pool/hot tub area was kind of amazing though. Breakfast was kind of expansive but not great quality. Very meh, lukewarm and dry like it was sitting out too long. Could have skipped easily, in fact we did one morning. For it being a "premier" location, well ... it underwhelmed. But that being said, proximity to the park was key and the grounds were really nicely landscaped - so it was evident they were trying!

We were very happy with our choice as the hotel was modern, spacious and clean. We didn't have personal experience with the lodges in the park itself but they looked like they may be more 'rustic' in nature. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant one night: great food and friendly, professional service from Javier. The breakfast buffet in the morning was very good, nice omelette bar, but not elaborate.

    It is a beautiful property located close to the entrance of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Our room was large, very clean, and comfortable. The lobby and restaurants were beautiful. There were three options for eating, which we really appreciated. And, I can't say enough about how wonderful the staff was. Friendly and very helpful.

    « EXCELLENT Customer Service »

    We decided to go to the Grand Canyon for two nights on our "mini-moon" right after our AZ destination wedding. We had no idea where to stay, but Best Western Permier looked nice online and had a decent price. Well, let me tell you, we were blown away! From the moment we arrived, the customer service provided from the hotel staff was un-paralleled. We arrived 2 hours before standard check in time, but no problem. Not only did they let us check in early, they made sure we had an excellent room for our honeymoon! We stayed in #4217, the King Suite which was HUGE. And, because they knew it was a special stay for us, they comped us free breakfast and free bowling with shoe rental. The staff provided us with excellent advice on how to get in and out of the park as well as suggestions on the best look out points to watch the sunset and hiking spots. We were blown away by this hotel and it's wonderful staff. Thank you ALL so much for making our honeymoon so memorable. I can't wait until we're able to come back to the Grand Canyon and stay at your hotel again!

    « Optimal Choice for Visiting Grand Canyon South Rim »

    Any visit to the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park will be less than complete if you don't include a sunrise and a sunset. To that end, you either need to stay within the park boundaries or someplace within easy driving distance. By all accounts, the lodgings within Grand Canyon National Park are poorly run and a terrible value for the high prices they charge. That makes the Best Western in Tusayan, a mere couple of miles from the South Entrance to the park, an ideal choice. This Best Western is a cut above their usual properties. The staff at reception was friendly and we were checked in quickly. The rooms are clean, the wifi good. For a night or two or three, one shouldn't have any complaints with this place. You are going to spend most of your waking hours at the park. We didn't try their restaurants as several other options are within walking distance.

    « Perfect Location »

    The Squire Inn, in Tusayan, is only 7 miles from the park, but a wonderful escape from the crowds of tourists & campers after a long day on the trails! There are both indoor & outdoor pools & spas, and room decor has been recently updated.

    « Definitely A Premier Experience. »

    Spent two nights here during our 3 day trip to the Grand Canyon. Room was large, clean, comfortable and quiet. The facility includes an outdoor courtyard with a pool, hot tub and outdoor bar. Inside amenities include a game room and bowling alley. There are three restaurants including a formal dining room, a buffet room and a pub. In the morning there is a breakfast buffet with a great selection and omelets made to order. We were very impressed that the restaurant staff went out of their way to accommodate my wife who must eat gluten free. From check in, to meals, to staff help advising on and booking Grand Canyon tours you are made to feel your comfort is their main concern.

    Front desk people was incredibly nice. Hotel room was average although the AC was extremely loud. Surprisingly the restaurant options are very good, both for dinner and breakfast. It has direct access to a running pathway (or unpaved street :) that takes you right to the Kaibab forest.

    Excellent location to stay just outside of park. Very close to the southern entrance. Shuttle bus stops outside of hotel, which can be very useful if you don't want to drive.Buffet dining a plus if you don't want a more 'formal' dining room.

    Very nice hotel with spacious, comfortable rooms. All staff, including in restaurants, were extremely pleasant and helpful (except for the front desk clerk who was there this morning when we were checking out). Buffet breakfast was great. Buffet dinner wasn't hot. Food would've been good if it had been hot. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

    « Very Comfortable Hotel in a Convenient Location »

    Very comfortable hotel in a convenient location just 8 minutes south of the entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park and 4 minutes north of the Grand Canyon Airport for Maverick Helicopter Flights. We stayed in one of the Motel style blocks and were able to park adjacent to our room. The room was spacious, with two large beds, very clean and comfortable with complimentary coffee etc. The hotel lobby was also very comfortable with free coffee, gift shops, and downstairs there were interesting western themed displays, with waterfalls, a six lane ten pin bowling alley, pool tables and gaming machines. The hotel offer a complimentary ?grab and go? breakfast between 05:30 and 06:30 am and when I went to collect ours at 06:05 am the receptionist said that ?we are all out?. However after noting my disappointment, and seeing me check the time on my watch, she kindly offered me ?complimentary breakfasts upstairs?. After our 08:00 am helicopter flight we had enough time to return to the hotel for our very tasty complimentary cooked breakfast ?upstairs? prior to checking out! Quite expensive for a one night stopover but very comfortable, with excellent customer service, and very convenient location.

    « Clearly the best Best Western out there. »

    This is the best Best Western hotel that I have been to, it is located close to the south entrance of Grand Canyon NP. We stayed in the 7000 building and the rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated. The whole building looked newly renovated (or built). The hotel has a good lobby, indoor and outdoor pools and a bowling alley and arcade. We also ate at their bar and grill and the food was excellent.

    « Rude staff not willing to accomadte »

    We stayed with a group of 12, in the restaurant there is one big table (which wasn't set) which the told us was reserved, we arrived at 20:45 and the kitchen closes at 21:30. Clearly they didn't want to set the table. When I asked the manager about it he told me they had a no-show. Whilst standing there with both hands in his pocket. At the end of our dinner, around 22:45 we asked for another bottle of wine when we were told the restaurant is closing, here is you check and you can go down to the bar and order a bottle there. Again I went to the manager and complaint about the fact we weren't offered any coffee or dessert's and just got presented the check. Mind you this is the fine dining restaurant of the hotel. To make matters worst when we arrived at the Bar on floor below, the barkeeer told us he just closed the till and was closing up... What!!!! When I went back up again to speak to the manager at reception I was told that they are sorry but this is the way it is at our Hotel. At that point I was so confused and didn't feel like arquing anymore. Overall i won't recommend this Hotel to anyone.

    booked 2 rooms One was ready by checkin time The other was not ready until about 2 hours AFTER check in. Front desk clerks were completely mixed up with names on reservations and rooms. Buffet dinner was understaffed and many items were empty. Poor guy at the carving station was a kitchen helper who was filling in for the real carver. Had no idea what he was doing. Guests are NOT ALLOWED to get own drinks. Must be served. Took over 20 minutes to get someone to help us and that was after asking several times for assistance. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and good

    Pleasantly surprised at just how nice this hotel was for a Best Western. The rooms were large, clean, and comfortable. Both an indoor and outdoor pool for the kids. Friendly staff at check-in. Breakfast buffet was our only disappointment, overpriced and not a great variety. The omelet chef burnt the eggs and everything else was cold. My son got sick and didn't eat and they wouldn't refund the money I paid for him. We also visited the Pub which food was average and overpriced as well. Great stay right outside of the park but food options are scarce. Overall a great stay.

    We decided to go to the Grand Canyon at the last minute and were looking for a hotel close to the park entrance. The Best Western was perfect for our needs -- great location, nice, clean rooms and an ample good breakfast buffet. The hotel has restaurants, game room, etc but we were too tired from the park to explore them. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

    I wasn't sure what to expect staying here. To be honest I was nervous ! I haven't stayed at many best westerns and was hesitant abt booking. I'm so happy I did !!! My family had so much fun here. On top of the staff being fantastic and so helpful, the hotel was clean and our breakfast was amazing !!!

    « Pricy during Spring Break, but nice »

    Wait for the rates to drop, then go! The shuttle bus service is really all you need for the Grand Canyon, and the trip is just few minutes. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly, and the concierge is truly there to help, not just push trips. Dining is pretty average, but the morning buffet is delightful with Jennifer there to make you feel so welcome. Breakfast food there was good solid cooking, fine dining was very average to sub-par.

    For the price you are paying, you would expect to be in a 4 or maybe even a 5 stat resort. This is the farthest thing from the truth. I ended up avg $300 per night for a room I felt was worth maybe $100.

    We had a comfortable stay here. Staff are friendly and helpful. We asked to move rooms and they were very helpful and accommodating. The beds are very comfy and we slept well. The heater was powerful which is great as it was -7 outside at night. Nice big tv and two safes in the room. Really easy to get to the canyon visitor centre from here - either my shuttle bus or car. There are lots of restaurants nearby which you should take advantage of as we found both the buffet and a la carte options in the hotel quite poor. Apart from the poor food we had a comfortable stay and slept well.

    We stayed here and at the Grand during the same week. Our experience here was very good. The staff was attentive and friendly. The rooms vary some by building. There are 8 buildings . If you want near the lodge,select 4 or 5. Building 3 is also near but requires a short walk across a driveway. Our rooms were clean,quite, and equipped with adequate towels,coffee maker,frig. This is not your ordinary Best Western. it truly. Is a premier facility. If fact we prefer it to the Grand,and the price is much better. They offer A $12.00 buffet breakfast with omelets,waffles, meats, etc. and a $12.00 lunch buffet which varies by day. The sculptures in the lodge are outstanding. I recommend this hotel over all others in town. The are others places to eat nearby and one high priced gas station as well as a IMAX movies, general store.There is an indoor pool

    « Great stay near the Grand Canyon »

    We stayed at the Best Western for one night during the Thanksgiving week and enjoyed our stay. Our room was an older room but was still updated. The hallway corridor to the room was older and dark but once inside we were happy with the room. 2 queen beds, vanity with coffee maker, little table & chair and a desk. The bathroom was small but sufficient. For the price we paid it was perfect. Food options are limited since Tusayan is a small town and that is to be expected. We ate breakfast at the coffee shop in the main hotel building and had pancakes & egg crossaint sandwich which was average. For dinner we ate at the pizza burger pub downstairs and again it was just average food. The meals were a bit expensive but then again we didn't have to leave the hotel once we arrived after a long day of touring the Grand Canyon. The arcade is pretty small but has air hockey and pool tables. There was also a small bowing alley. There was an indoor pool which must have been new since I didn't see that listed in the amenities so sadly I didn't bring the kids bathing suits. Next time.

    This BW was a pleasant surprise. It is much larger than my normal haunts with full service restaurants and a lounge, bowling alley and arcade, pool and hot tub. We reserved two of the larger double queen rooms for my family. They are expanded versions of the standard room. The bathrooms were the big surprise with a HUGE oval-shaped tub that could fit two. I really enjoyed our view out our window. I had a nice evergreen tree right next to the window that birds would visit. Intentional or not, it was nice to know people couldn't see in our room with our shades open. The hotel was immaculate and comfortable, and the beds were fantastic. The staff is extraordinarily attentive and professional. We will stay here again.

    This hotel was a great affordable choice with easy access to the Grand Canyon. The rooms were a good size equipped with fridge and coffee machine. In addition to the bathroom, there was also a separate sink area which was convenient. Beds were comfy and provided great night of sleep before some hiking the next day. There were also some restaurants and a general store down the street which was convenient (although prices were high everywhere as expected). Would stay here again and recommend this as a good option was easy access to the Grand Canyon.

    « First visit to the Grand Canyon »

    We flew into Las Vegas and made the drive to the Grand Canyon on a Sunday morning. The drive was easy and around 5 hours, but hard to tell, since we stopped at Hoover Dam. Originally we wanted to stay in one of the hotels at the Grand Canyon, but there was limited availability and the prices were rather high. As a result I looked in Tusayan and selected the Best Western. After looking at the hotels in the park we were glad we made the choice. The hotel is only 6 miles from the visitor center in the park and is an easy drive. We were in the 7000 building and the rooms was up to date and quite large. There was a small sitting area and the bathroom had lots of space too. The only thing we didn't like was the fixed shower door. There is a glass panel, but it doesn't move, so it can be a little chilly in the shower. It was a quick walk to the lobby where the restaurants are located. We ate dinner one night at the hotel and the food was and service was excellent. Also, we did the breakfast buffet one morning and it was good as well. A large selection of food, drinks and a made to order omelet station. The service at the hotel was excellent. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out we were treated like valued guests. The front desk team was very attentive and really set the tone at check-in. Overall observations: ? From a value perspective the Best Western beat staying at the park. Cheaper with more amenities. However, you can't walk outside your room and see the Grand Canyon, so there is a trade-off. ? Short drive to the Grand Canyon and the cost to enter the park is $30 and is good for a week. ? There is a shuttle in Tusayan, but it wasn't operating in November. ? It is an easy drive to the Visitor Center and lots of parking. It gets a lot more congested near the hotels in the park and the parking is limited. The good news is there is a free shuttle that will get you anywhere you want to go in the park. The exception is the Watchtower which is 22 miles from the Visitor Center. ? The Grand Canyon is breathtaking and every lookout is just a little different. We did some hiking, but they were limited to just 2-3 miles. ? We stopped at Hoover Dam on the way. The traffic was slow in Boulder City due to the left turn to continue on Hwy 93. The drive into the dam from the access road was quick and we drove across the dam and parked for free on the Arizona side.

    « The best place to stay near the Grand Canyon »

    I'm so excited that I selected this hotel because it seemed from the reviews and the pictures on trip advisor....a little bit like a Chucky e cheese (NOT THE CASE)but I have to tell you that it was really pretty fabulous. The hotel had an excellent steakhouse. More of a fine dining. we had a birthday for my husband there. Art and the wait staff at the restaurant took great care of my husband on his birthday. We also noticed that they had a pub style restaurant downstairs& a was separate bowling alley. We also saw families enjoying pizza in the bowling alley and there was also eating areas inside of the arcade. My family did not get a chance to enjoy all of these but I like that the hotel provides casual as well as fancy places to get together. The hotel has an indoor as well the outdoor pool. The weather was "kind of crazy while we are up there it began snowing so it was nice to have things to do inside the hotel. My husband and kids did enjoy this and my daughter made a new friend there. Our room was fantastic. We ended up with a room in building number seven. At first I thought it was a little far away but the location ended up being great the Decour looks like something out of a design magazine and the room was spacious. They even had a rollaway crib for my baby which it seems like hardly any hotels do anymore so this is a big plus for me. This place is Huge! The room did not include breakfast but they did have a very popular breakfast buffet and complementary coffee in the lobby as well as a really nice gift shop. The hotel is also full of some amazing artwork and paintings of the Grand Canyon.I think this is probably the best place to stay near the Grand Canyon

    We stayed here for one night when visiting the Grand Canyon. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the lobby, especially when considering the very reasonable cost. Other reviews refer to older rooms, but the lobby was in very nice condition, as was our room. The layout of the place is odd, with separate buildings and one central building. Our room was in the central building. As mentioned earlier, it was very nice. It had a large bathroom and a second vanity and sink outside of it. The room itself was very large. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. We were almost regretting not staying at this properly for a second night, because of how enjoyable the stay was. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone and will stay here again if in the area.

    « Always A Great Place To Stay »

    I recently stayed at the Best Western Grand Canyon Squire at Tusayan, AZ. The desk clerk was friendly, helpful, and suggested I stay in their new building. I was given a room in the new annex 7000. My guess is that the new annex has been open for less than a month because the entire building had the scent of new carpet and new wood. I had super nice room which seemed brand new. The attractively designed open shower sprayed water on the floor so I had to use an extra towel to keep the floor from becoming slick. The room had lots of lighting. The windows looked out onto a center courtyard for the hotel complex. The room was equipped with a Koureg coffee machine, a microwave, mini-fridge, sink, desk, table, bureau, historic photos of the Grand Canyon, and extra towels. There was only one bar of soap for the both the shower and vanity. This motel touts its efforts towards being a ?green? property so one soap seemed appropriate. The shower, stool, and vanity were in a separate room with a sliding door. The sleeping area had two queen beds. This Annex 7000 room was near luxury and a great Hotwire price of only $115. The room size is 18'x30'. It was clean and quiet but doors closing hall could be heard. There was no water noise coming from other rooms. I rate the Annex 7000 of the Best Western Grand Canyon Squire a solid 5 for quiet, clean, amenities, and price.

    « Easily the best hotel near the Grand Canyon »

    This is likely one of the best Best Western Inns around outside the park and deserves the name "Premier". The building is well appointed and the rooms are quite nice. There's also a game room to entertain young adults and children. The bar food was good, but not great. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel either as the buffet seemed a bit pricey given the teens in our party.

    « Good while visiting GC »

    We stayed for 2 nights while visiting GC national park and were happy with the location ( very close to southern gate ), service and room. Breakfast buffet is a bit overrated in my opinion, however good and comparable to most other same category hotels. One positive point is that you can park your car almost at the entrance of your room. Reasonably priced . Would certainly advise to stay here instead of Williams / Flagstaff

    « Premier? Get Real! »

    I can't recommend this location for the following reasons: Calling this a Best Western PREMIER is in name only! They took away the free breakfast offered at every other level of Best Western and charge you $13.99 each for the buffet (that normally would be free at any other BW level). The nightly price was almost double of other BW properties we stayed at this trip (through CO, AZ & NM) but we figured it was because you're at the Grand Canyon. Management was a joke--I have food allergies, so I asked the night manager (Chino) about how things were made. He didn't know so he EMAILED his 'chef' and then left for two days (same 2 days we were there). No one got a response while I was there. I gave up waiting to hear from him so I asked the morning restaurant manager (Krish) the same questions--she didn't know if they used butter or margarine, what kind of oil they fried in or used on the grill, or what Eggbeaters were. She barely spoke English and didn't understand what I was asking. The waiter gave me more information on his break than she did. I had reserved a ground floor room when making the reservations 3 weeks in advance. When we got there, we were given a room (by the rude desk clerk) on the far end of the second floor of a poorly designed property. It was a V-shaped building where you drop off your luggage at the point of the V, lug it to one of the end points to the elevator, go up one floor & unload then haul it back to the point and to the other end point of the V. When I reminded them that I had reserved a ground floor room, they 'upgraded' me to a ground floor room. The room numbering is extremely confusing--so trying to find your room by the building number (they have 7 buildings) room number combination is frustrating. The room was small. The sheets were 'microfiber' polyester (our cotton PJs stuck to them when we tried to move), the bed was hard as the rocks in the canyon....but it was a room that was paid for (prepaid when reserved) when we needed a bed. It really wasn't worth arguing for a refund and trying to find another room on the fly. The had a small 6 lane bowling alley (NOT FREE) and video arcade on the lower level. Parking was a nightmare as well. Apparently they let people take up 2 spaces all of the time. One ways through the property so it was hard to exit without going all around the buildings. Not signed well, either.

    We were very pleased as we drove up to this beautiful hotel. The exterior is beautifully designed to fit in with the beautiful landscape in Grand Canyon. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. We enjoyed the free coffee and breakfast. If u desire a bigger breakfast there is a restaurant on premises for that. The rooms r nicely decorated with light color furniture. Our room had two large beds; a safe, refer, and microwave. We were sorry we only stayed one night. We r minutes from the Grand Canyon with its breathtaking spectacular views.

    We were amazed at how close this hotel was to the park entrance- definitely the number one perk. With few options outside the park, this was all we needed. Room was nice, nothing fancy- but we were there for less than 12 hours. Rate was very reasonable for us and did the job!

    « Modern and comfortable »

    Front lobby area is modern and upscale, and a large fireplace in the lounge is visible from that area and a welcome sight in cooler weather. The checkin was seamless and the clerk was friendly and professional. The room was large and very nicely appointed. It had a small fridge, microwave, and keurig coffeemaker, which we enjoyed. It also had a table with two chairs, a lounging chair and ottoman, and a work desk and rolling chair. We were very pleased. The king bed was VERY comfortable. The only drawback is that they don't include a complimentary breakfast with the room, but we knew that when we booked it. They have a breakfast buffet for $12 per person, which is good and probably comparable to what you'd pay elsewhere in town. You need to allow for that in your price comparisons, though. I would have given it a five if a breakfast was included.

    My family stayed there last week where we had reservations in the new building. The rooms were huge and my three adult children were comfortable in one room. My husband and I loved our room too. The rooms were modern with exceptional shower as well as a nice clean kitchen area with a mini-fridge that you can actually use, since it wasn't loaded with mini-bar items. The guy that checked us in was fabulous even though we arrived several hours late. Wish I had written down his name! It's so close to the Canyon that you can make it there by sunrise with a minimal drive. This hotel was much nicer than a major hotel which we stayed in on the strip in Vegas!

    « Very nice resort property. »

    This property would be an excellent choice if you want a little luxury while visiting the Grand Canyon. There are multiple restaurants and a bar, large pool area and other amenities. After my previous stay at a Best Western, I was disappointed to find out that the breakfast was not a complimentary one. My room was in one of the newer wings. It was very well appointed. Nice work area with room to entertain and an area for a bar. Very spacious and luxurious bath.

    « Grand Canyon hotel »

    Stopped off here for 2 nights on our first road trip to America. Part of a package all pre booked with trail finders. Really good bedrooms all facilities you needed in place as near to the south rim as you could get. A bit disappointed with the food on offer in the evening, easy enough to fill up but limited fare, not a lot in the way of fruit and veg but BBQ type meat and burgers aplenty. Breakfast much better in buffet style area upstairs lot more variety. Did Canyon helicopter ride at nearby maverick helicopters. Early start but well worth it. Good for what we needed overall, as part of package did what it said on the tin. If you have been to the area before you could do all this independently I suppose. Don't know what the price comparison would be, independent v package. An interesting exercise if you have the time!

    « Disappointing »

    On check in the chap was very helpful and pleasant. The room was a good size and what we expected from an out of the way kind of budget hotel. The morning however changed things greatly. The sound of other peoples doors banging was very loud. The fire alarm went off at 7am ish and made us leap out of our bess only for front desk to say they thought it might be a malfunction. The lack of certainty was a concern but we were then up and aware that breakdast would be rammed as so would everyone else now. Sure enough breakfast was busy however the a noying thing was the polystyrene plates and plastic cutlery. One of the pancake machines also didnt function. When attempting to air complaint at front desk the lady was clueless as to what thei complaint procedure was and gave a comment card instead. Manager was within earshot but rathee than interject and solve the issue she walked away and spoke with her friens.

    « Great Location - Cramped Rooms »

    This is a great location for a hotel. The trip to the Grand Canyon is about a 15 minute drive. Once you have your week-long Grand Canyon pass, you can buzz through in the bypass lane. There are several buildings that make up the hotel and I'm sure that each one has a different history and cleanliness. Outside, each building and the grounds are imaculate and well done. However, our building was run-down and the rugs leading to our room were dirty and worn. Doors to the storage areas were left open and visible to each customer. Our room was old and cramped. The sheets to the bed were of poor quality and also old. They had those little cotton balls that happen when they become overused. After sleeping on them one night, my wife asked for them to be changed but the next night, the sheets were still the same. There are two restaurants, one is elegant dining, and the other is pub food. Each was good at what they do. They were all clean, neat, and provided good food and good service. We visited the excursion concierge and found him to be completely unfriendly and ... unhelpful. He seemed to be preoccupied with his computer and wanted us moving on so he could get back to it. The internet speeds were awful but maybe that is from being so far out in the middle of nowhere ... I got speeds of 1.5 mbps. We heard about construction noise from other guests but did not hear any ourselves.

    Spotless modern and surprisingly well appointed . This is our first stay at the top of the line BW Premier hotels . About 5 Km from the US National Park front entrance and about 10 Km from the GC Village and South Rim.

    « Excellent Hotel - close to Grand Canyon »

    This place (Tusayan) is very close to the Grand Canyon south rim enrance. Very convenient. If you are planning to stay multiple days at the Grand Canyon, this is a bette alternative to staying in the park (which is lot more expensive).

    The location is very ideal for a visit to the Grand Canyon. It is very clean and modern. Wifi is good. We ate at the restaurant and it was good. The front desk staff could be friendlier and more helpful.

    « Very Convenient »

    This is a great place to start your Grand Canyon. It is just a short distance from the IMAX(not to be missed). Nice bar in the downstairs. 2 restaurants to serve you we ate in both. Food was good but not great. Room was clean and short walk to lobby.

    « This is a Best Western? Really? »

    I booked at this hotel because it was one of few that had availability. Previous experiences at Best Western hotels have been about average. So I was excited about the Grand Canyon, but not so much about the hotel. I could not have been more wrong. Apparently Best Western has a number of "upscale" hotel lines (Best Western Deluxe and Premier). This is in the "Premier" line. It is a VERY nice hotel. Outstanding restaurant and great service. Has a pub downstairs, and game room for kids (and adults that are still kids). Even a bowling alley. Our room was nice. Note - Other reviews have mentioned construction noise. We were there mid-Oct 2016. I noticed some construction trucks, but absolutely no noise. Distance to Grand Canyon park gets is only a few miles. And if you can afford it, book a helicopter tour. I went with my father (91-years old). It was incredible. He is still talking about it.

    « Great Staff, Large Clean Rooms »

    I suspect hotel was fairly empty when we were there. The staff was great, super helpful. Rooms were large and clean. Indoor and outdoor pools. Ample parking. 2 restaurants, a bar, and breakfast area on site. The breakfast at the breakfast area was sub-par, especially for the amount they charge. I recommend something else. It's basically a buffet set up in a meeting room. The omelette station was the nicest part there.Bowling alley and arcade on site if you need evening activities. If I ever end up back at the Grand Canyon, I would stay here again.

    « Big room »

    I was unable to make reservations in the park, so this was the next best thing. I think it took 12 min to get to the gate and there was no line, we went right in (645 am). I didn't have the breakfast but we went to the RP stage shop which was great. The room was big. You can tell the room was outdated, then they put a lot of money into the hotel. I had no issue with this place.

    « Basic family motel »

    This was a no-frill basic family motel. It has all the amenities needed including parking outside your room, a bistro type restaurant, bowling and other things for families to do. The rooms were basic and adequate. Don't go here looking for luxury, but as a place to sleep whilst you are doing the canyon, definitely adequate. Better though to stay on the rim, if you can budget that.

    « Amazing ammenities... »

    So in regards to this particular Hotel I only have one negative everything else is positive they have an indoor pool and jacuzzi and a brand new facility which looks smells feels amazing they also have a very nice outdoor pool and jacuzzi area with tons of seating. They have a arcade pool tables and bowling alley next to 100% bar downstairs which is incredibly unique for different hotels that I've stayed at. They also have two other restaurants on the property parking is very close to a lot of the rooms which is very convenient. This is a non-smoking Hotel so if you're a smoker you have to go outside it's pretty windy out here so not the best thing but it is what it is now my one complaint the layout of the bathroom is ridiculous how stupid it is and they have the toilet paper holder sticking out within a half an inch of where the lid for the toilet goes up and down so God forbid you have a little spare tire hanging off the side it will be pushed up onto the toilet paper holder. I will put the picture of the toilet on cuz if you're a big person you just can't sit comfortably which may be a bit hard for some people but other than that everything is very nice everything looks totally remodeled tons of pictures that will tell the story of the local landscape very very nice I give it 4 stars after they fix the toilet issue.

    « Vast Hotel with decent rooms »

    We were given the keys to our room swiftly which was lucky as a queue was beginning to form. Because the car park is so vast, people park right by the front lobby (or under the portico) to get the room keys. This causes jams and is rather annoying. The hotel is large and spread out which could make it feel somewhat impersonal but he staff are friendly and helpful and it is not a bad place to stay. Safely in our room, it was perfectly ok and comformable. We had a non view of another wing of the hotel. The net curtains did not move but as we were not really spending much time in the room it did not really matter. Breakfast is not brilliant for the price, although I enjoyed the fruit platter, but on our final morning we skipped breakfast at the hotel and went to our next destination for a late breakfast. This was enjoyable. It is a shame that coffee, croissants and fruit are not available as a simple breakfast at the hotel. Dinner is extremely popular in the main dining room. You need to book in good time. Service on our second night was very poor and we waited 45 minutes for our first course. The waiter had not put the order through to the kitchen. The waiters also disappeared for long periods of time so lots of tables appeared to be without food. On our first night it had been a much better experience. The food is very average - in the UK it would be below gastro pub standard. It is edible and large portions, but nothing I cannot cook at home. We presume there is nothing better in the area.

    « A perfect room and location »

    This was my second stop on my trip across the US, where I stayed for 2 nights ? please see my first review: Mirage, Las Vegas. I flew into Las Vegas from Manchester, UK and, after four nights there, picked up a rental car and drove to this hotel in the Grand Canyon. My party consisted of two adults and one teenager aged 17. This was a very nice hotel ? clean, modern, good size, and it had a lovely gift shop, pub, several restaurants, a ten-pin bowling alley, and a small indoor and outdoor pool - There is also a large free parking area. We were too busy to try the ten-pin bowling and pools, so I can't comment on those. There were also some eating places up the road. All the staff here were very friendly and the hotel was in a great location ? about ten minutes' drive from the Grand Canyon National Park. Our room here was perfect. We were given a room in one of the new blocks and it actually smelt new! It was a beautifully appointed room ? large, modern, great view from the window, and the bathroom was amazing! It also had a coffee machine, microwave, fridge, and an additional sink area ? what more could you want! We had breakfast in the hotel both mornings, which was very nice, and we had one evening meal there. There was a very limited choice of food for the evening meal, but what we had was OK. The other evening, we ate up the road. There was a fine dining area in the hotel, which looked lovely and had a big open fire place, but we didn't try it as we thought it might be a bit too pricey! We had a great trip to the Grand Canyon while staying at the Best Western. The Canyon is truly breath-taking. We did one of the walks around the south rim and one of the small treks down into the Canyon while we were there. At the end of a busy day, this hotel is just down the road from the south rim, which is perfect! So, we loved our stay at the Best Western and would certainly stay there again if we visited the Canyon in the future. It comes well recommended!

    « Confortable accomodation! »

    Good place and good people of staff. Clean, nice, completly and comfortable to rest after a large cool day in the Grand Canyon. ONly parking I don't like because was large and the car was far and outside was very very cold. The best thing was ever eat. I impressed me the photo of Einstein when he visited the place. I recommend it!

    « Great Place to Rest While Seeing the Grand Canyon »

    Although we arrived well into the evening and left at sunrise, this Best Western Premier was more than sufficient for our stay. We had one of the newer rooms which was well appointed and very comfortable. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly and we had a late bite at the restaurant which was also fine for our needs. Lobby is spacious, clean. The only drawback is that parking is dispersed all over the place and there is some construction going on. Otherwise, highly recommended.

    « Lovely pool and hot tub »

    We stayed in October as a family of four. The lady on reception was very nice and helpful ,we had a slight issue with the door lock on our room ,went to reception to complain and was given another room without any problem. We stayed in the 2000 block which was a little dated compared to the new part of the hotel by the pool.good size room with two double beds ,flat screen TV ,fridge and microwave also had good wifi. The room was a little dusty on the skirting boards the but not to bad . We really enjoyed the brand new swimming pools and hot tubs (indoor and outdoor) also had a very good fitness room we loved it .

    « Great location, comfortable stay »

    This hotel is minutes from the entrance to the grand canyon national park. There's dining on-site, but its also close by to other restaurants and a general store. The indoor pool and hot tub were a welcome feature after spending time walking around the park. Splurge for an upgraded suite that comes with keurig coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator and bose surround system. In sum, this hotel is a perfect home base to explore the grand canyon.

    « Great stay! »

    My husband and I stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon. When we arrived the staff at the front desk were incredibly friendly, and even provided us with complementary deodorant and toothbrushes when we asked if they were sold in their store. We were given the option of a room in their newest construction building which is a short walk from the main building, or a room within the main building which houses the restaurants and amenities. I was impressed by even being given this option since usually you're just told your room number when you check into a hotel. We chose the newer construction and it was awesome! Everything was clean and in great shape. That night we chose to eat at the squire pub (I hope I'm remembering that right) and it was delicious! The food was great and our waitress provided great service despite the restaurant being decently crowded. This hotel is also located about 5 miles from the Grand Canyon which was very convenient (it's also a straight shot to get there, very hard to get lost!). All in all we were very satisfied with our stay and will absolutely be staying again if we ever come back!

    « Wonderful place »

    We were lucky to get a patio room, which was very nice. Single-storey area of hotel, so we had no one above us, and had a nice place to park, and a picnic table on a grassy area which was very pleasant. Lovely view of the woods across the road. Only drawback was lack of space to put clothes, etc. away. But nice big room, clean and pleasant. Front desk service was great. One complaint is the concierge, Richard, who sold us a tour that was exactly what we told him we didn't want! Wondered what kind of kickback he got from the tour. The hotel is convenient to the canyon, and to the free shuttle bus. Squire Inn dining room was really good, and the staff there just outstanding (especially the maitre'd). The breakfast was also good in that restaurant.

    « Easy Access to Grand Canyon »

    Good standard Best Western just outside the Grand Canyon National Park. Check for time of year when free shuttle runs into the Park - no need to drive! The shuttle bus stops right outside the hotel. Room comfortable and clean, Staff helpful.

    « October Visit to Grand Canyon »

    Hotel staff was very friendly and professional. Location (in Tusayan just outside the south gate of the Grand Canyon National Park) was fantastic -- very easy to get into the park each morning, and a short drive at the end of the day. The hotel room and all of the common areas were very well maintained. The wireless access was reliable and fast. Just can't say enough good things about this facility! It made for a great visit to the park!

    « Review of Hotel and Room »

    Big rooms and comfortable bed, lots of amenities in the hotel. The in house restaurant, the Coronado, had the best buffalo short ribs I have every had. Although it is just outside of the park, it is a good alternative to in park hotels. We had a car but they have shuttles to everything.

    « Was amazed at how large and nice »

    If you can't get lodging on the Grand Canyon rim, then this would be the place to stay. Lovely rooms and facility. The mural alone is worth going into see. Was disappointed that the pool looked beautiful, but was told is was "under construction." Although a "mid range" hotel, the prices are for "luxury."

    « More than a hotel! »

    We stayed at the Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn in the Grand Canyon, AZ as we wanted a hotel near to the canyon. My initial impression during my search was this hotel was the only one in the area, but i was happy with that as BW was my preferred choice. When we got there, we found that it was in fact in a small town with many hotels and restaurants. This BW offered you everything to keep you entertained and not needing to leave the hotel for any reason. The room itself was very nice, roomy and the bathroom very modern and spacious. The drive to the Canyon is very quick.

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    When we made these reservations, we didn't pay attention that it was a Premier BW and had never stayed at one before. When we first walked into the lobby, filthy dirty after backpacking across the Grand Canyon, we felt so out of place in the super nice and ornate lobby that we actually walked back out to double check that we hadn't accidentally walked into the wrong hotel. Nope, it was a Best Western alright. The room was super nice and I loved how they had so many historical pictures and descriptions hanging all over the place. Grand Canyon is rich in history and I love that this hotel has embraced that. We spent a good hour just walking around looking at the pictures and reading about them. I never knew that Albert Einstein visited the grand canyon and hung out with the natives....but there was the picture of it, right in front of us. My only complaint was that the Continental Breakfast was not included like it is at every other Best Western we have stayed at. It cost $12 to eat their breakfast there. Other than that, the room was clean and the bed was comfotable.

    « Great kicking off point to a Grand Canyon visit »

    Great hotel that is VERY close to South Rim entrance to GC. Great for families with new indoor pool and game room with bowling available. Also great for traveling adults with 2 bars. Be warned though Tusayan is a price gouging town...plan ahead and bring any needed extra water, snacks or food....or be prepared to feel the sticker shock!! (nothing to do with Best Western, just the town it is in!)

    « Not the worst but certainly not the best. »

    Only reason they can charge what they charge is proximity to the South Rim. Soundproofing is inadequate. So is parking. While lower level employees were friendly and helpful, doing their best for us, managers did not step in to help when needed (as in the upscale restaurant and in the breakfast cafe when multiple employees called in sick). Don't apologize, step up and pour coffee, get water, comp a glass of wine, carry trays etc. Look for what needs doing. Cross train people so they know what to do in a crisis and it won't become one! My friend, whose husband reserved this hotel for us, did give feedback to the manager when we left.

    « Stayed in new bldg »

    After reading reviews we decided to stay in the new bldg. room was very spacious and had nice warm tones of fabric and finishes. Two separate sinks- one for the 'kitchen ' area and one for the bathroom. Fridge- coffee pod machine. Lots of counter space and desk space. A number of spots for recharging phones etc. beds were comfy and clean. Shower was nice and powerful- enjoyed it after hiking at the grand canyon?? Drive to the canyon ourselves since the shuttle bus had stopped their service in the city. It was easy though. A straight drive to the park entrance. Had to walk to the main bldg for food and shopping- just a small issue since most of our tax me was at the G Canyon . Their in house store is wonderful. Pick up some basic groceries or souvenirs. Well priced. Staff is efficient and helpful. Enjoy your stay- best part was the room was huge!!!! Made it easy to relax.

    « Good location, nice hotel »

    We stayed here for one night when wanting to visit the Grand Canyon. First warning... be careful on the sat nav as ours took us somewhere completely different so we then put in Tusayan which was an extra 1.5 hours away from where we were so make sure you leave enough time. You have to pay 30 dollars to enter the park but this lasts for 7 days. It was a great base and is just outside the park so depending on what direction you come from you might not have to pay. There wasn't a great choice of food in Tusayan and seemed pricey. We ate in the hotel but weren't very impressed, the food was served in metal tins (looked like dog bowls) and it was quite expensive for what you got! We booked the pink jeep tour which picked us up from our hotel. It is also a 5 minute drive from the airport if you wanted to book a helicopter ride. Overall a nice clean hotel.

    « Close to Grand Canyon, but make sure to request a newer room »

    We stayed here because it was close to the Grand Canyon. It is on the shuttle route, which is very convenient. If you pick this place, request an updated room in the newer section. We had an old room and it was in need of repair and also smelled. The outlets were coming out of the wall and the carpet was dirty. It put a damper on an otherwise fantastic trip - so much that we considered giving up the second night and leaving early for Phoenix. I understand that the newer section is much better, although I didn't get to see it myself. The staff was very nice.

    « Fine property with potential to be better »

    This is a clean and tidy vacation property set near the National Park. Our room was overly large for our needs but was comfortable and well located near reception and restaurants. Everything worked but a plan of the numerous switches and their effects would have saved a lot of fiddling around. All colors in the Inn are earth tones as befits the Grand Canyon. There is plenty of parking space and vehicular access as one would expect from a motel style property. We did not try services in the village other than through the Inn. Food and beverage services are adequate and deserve more attention from management to lift them to a standard that befits the property and the prices. Delays in restaurant service were unacceptably long; plating needs the attention of a well trained chef; and breakfast buffets are basic. Check in/out was easy and staff were efficient. Seems like this was the best place in the Village and we would use it again.

    « Not impressed! »

    I really wasn't impressed with this hotel. We were met in the parking lot by "the manager" saying he could give us a really good deal. We stayed because of its location to the Grand Canyon. $129.99 a night is what we were told, apparently the "good deal" was for the rooms in the BACK lot of the hotel in a separate building . Lots of entertainment and VERY overpriced items in the main hotel. First place I have ever been where I paid $11.00 for a small shot of whiskey and a bottle of water was $5.00. Rooms and hotel could definitely use an update, if ever back in the area I would choose a different hotel.

    « Overpriced glorified motel »

    There's not much to recommend Tusayan apart from its proximity to the Grand Canyon so we expected to have to pay more for a hotel despite booking 6 months ahead. Our room was in a block of ground floor rooms (block 12 I think), and there are several of them so we didn't stay in the hotel itself. The room was way bigger than we needed with 2 large beds (we only needed one) so there was no complaint on space. The hairdryer didn't work so we rang and got someone to replace it. Quick service. Despite being late September and fairly cool outside the room was quite warm. The window only opened a tiny amount so we were reliant on the air con. A big problem - the unit was one of those big plastic things and it was very powerful but definitely not subtle. It went from being completely off to blowing an icy gale and keeping us awake. The fridge was similar - coming on loudly for 30 seconds every 3 minutes. Both got switched off at night and sleep wasn't that easy to come by as the room warmed up. Breakfast choice was fairly wide but lacked quality and there was no bacon on either day (just sausage burger). There's no way I would recommend this hotel (or the town of Tusayan) to anyone and it frankly puts me off visiting the canyon again. Best Western have also had this reported through their web site survey. Oh yes, I also killed a cockroach in the bathroom on the last morning which my wife will now just be finding out about...

Laundry facilities are excellent. Parking available. Customer service, especially Amanda at check in was excellent. They will have a brand new pool area opening soon which already looks amazing. Plenty of food options around the hotel but their breakfast is excellent! Omelet station and all! Highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

    « First Stay at a BW Premier Proves Disappointing! »

    Our first stay at a Best Western Premier hotel proved disappointing to say the least! Our experience began with an extremely unpleasant staff member at check-in. She displayed a poor attitude from the minute we approached the front desk and seemed intolerant of any question we asked. This set the tone immediately and we certainly did not feel a warm welcome nor did we feel that our business was appreciated! Strike one! Upon arrival to our room, we discovered the tv remote did not work. We reported this to the front desk and awaited the arrival of a maintenance employee. He eventually replaced the remote, but it appeared this service call was an annoyance in his day as well! Strike Two for service with a smile! We were placed in a hallway of rooms that was also accommodating a bus group. The following morning we were awakened by doors slamming and loud voices chatting outside our door at 6 am which continued for nearly 30 minutes. The sleeping room door seal left much to be desired and allowed the loud noise to enter our room. After being awakened early, we proceeded to make coffee only to discover the coffee maker did not work. We encountered the same front desk staff member at checkout who displayed an equally sour disposition as the previous day! I passed along the coffee pot issue so the next guest would not experience the same issue and wondered if she would at least extend an apology for the inconvenience....she did not! Strike three for service with a smile!! We arrived at this BW Premier hotel with expectations of superior service and accommodations. Sadly, this was not the case! I believe most hotel issues are tolerable and can be overcome if a genuine, sincere effort is made by staff members. Unfortunately there appears to be more than a few disengaged employees at this hotel. We will not return nor will we recommend to others!

    Our room was very spacious and new in a side building. There was a brand new laundry there as well, we didn't have to go to the main building. This alone, was a great comfort factor as well! Dinner was truly excellent, breakfast was not bad, either. Art, the restaurant manager is very welcoming and is doing a great job at accommodating everybody even when you'd think that the place is bursting! We were happy to see him every evening! Unfortunately the new pools and gym had not been opened during our stay yet, but they look great. The present gym and Jacuzzi are rather a sad sight... A further negative experience was the unfriendly lady at the reception, who made us feel as if we had personally invaded and occupied the land of her ancestors in the 19th century. All in all, it's a great place to stay at while visiting Grand Canyon.

    « Good price near the Grand Canyon »

    This hotel was as near to the south rim of the Grand Canyon as you can get without going into the Village, which costs money and has pricier hotel rooms. We stayed for one night at a very good price. The room was large and clean, but its style was definitely not modern. Definitely a good value for the price. The hotel also had an arcade and bowling alley, which we didn't use, but was a nice touch as there is not much to do in the area after it gets dark.

    « Pretty fancy for a Best Western »

    We stayed here because we could not get into anything in the Park itself and this hotel is not that far from the gates. We had booked for two nights but had to leave a day early. We appreciated that the hotel allowed us to cancel the second night with so little notice. The hotel is much larger and more upscale than other Best Westerns where we have stayed. There are two choices for dining. We ate at the family restaurant, and I cannot recommend it. The food was pretty mediocre, but at least it was inexpensive. The rooms were large and clean. The staff in the hotel and restaurant were courteous and friendly. We did not need travel advise, but I overheard it being given to other travelers.

    « Overnight stay »

    Stayed for just one night whilst visiting the Canyon from Vegas. Great location just a short drive from the National Park and if you don't want to drive the free shuttle bus stops right outside the hotel. There is a fridge and microwave in the room and as we had eaten out every night of our trip it was nice to buy supplies at the supermarket and make use of it. The pool was closed whilst we were there as building work was going on but we heard no noise from that.

    « A Good Option Among Limited Choices »

    I've been to the south rim of the Grand Canyon six times, and I've stayed in the park and in Tusayan. To be blunt, you're here for the Canyon and the outdoor activities, so you kind of have to suck it up and make do with limited choices both outside and inside the park. The Best Western Premier is one of the nicer hotels outside the park. It has several restaurants on-site and other conveniences, like a pool (which was closed while we were there), and bowling. (A good other local restaurant is Plaza Bonita, about 3 blocks away.) The hotel has grown over time, so some of the buildings are newer than others; if possible get one of the newer buildings. You might need to walk 50 feet to cross the parking lot to get to the restaurant, but I think the newer building are more up-to-date. Checkin was quick; the room clean and relatively new. Nice hot shower. Good selection of TV channels. Room had a tub and a single sink, but bathroom area had adequate counter space. Parking is free. The price is relative high, but this is a tight market. Gas is around 50% above what you pay in Flagstaff and the same applies most of the year for hotel rooms, The prices in the park are comparable, so if you can book far enough in advance you might want to try the El Tovar. The quality and amenities of the lodging in the park have a HUGE range, from ancient (historic?) cabins with heaters that will struggle on cold nights, to the El Tovar, which is truly an historic hotel (but still dated)(see separate review for the El Tovar). Enjoy the Canyon - it is amazing!

    « Good Price. Good Location. »

    Not far from the entrance to the Grand Canyon. Book in advance! The no vacancy sign was lit when we got there, but fortunately we had booked ahead. It's right on the main strip of the little town. There are a few restaurants on site. The prices were a little high, but I think that is just to be expected in resort towns like that. There's not a lot to do in town, so if you're looking for more to do outside the park, then you might want to consider staying in Williams, further south. But if you're looking to spend most of the time in the park, then this is a great place to choose!

    Nice initial welcome at reception and concierge a great help with lots of useful info re Grand Canyon. Room dated with poor shower which is difficult to use if you are even slightly infirm. Beds were okay and room clean and comfortable. Restaurant was very mixed re quality of food and especially service. The first night at dinner was excellent but second evening was very poor service and food wise. Breakfast was similarly very mixed with long waits for service and having to chase up for coffee refills which were not especially hot. A good point for the location was that the park shuttle bus stops outside the hotel so no need to drive, and it's free if you have your park pass. Reception on leaving was brusque and slow.

    « what a treat »

    There are only two places to stay while visiting the south rim of the grand canyon. Inside the park has some definite advantages but staying outside the park is very convenient. Restaurants, shops and the Imax theater are all close together. The Best Western was a nice treat. The Premier indicates that it is a step above the average Best Western. It has a nice lobby with a fireplace, a waterfall, gift shop, bowling alley and two restaurants. The staff is great and room comes with a large tub, microwave and frig. Very nice room. There was really no great view from the hotel which was fine. The front desk agent gave our family a discount to the bowling alley and the Imax. I would not recommend the breakfast buffet they offer. I would compare it to an affordable hotel that offers the same thing for free. Here they charge you $12.50. Uggg, the staff said it was actually better than what they had before. That being said, what a treat for our family to stay.

    My wife and I spent two nights here while visiting the Grand Canyon in early October. We chose it based somewhat on a friends recommendation in addition to some reviews that I had read. The room was spacious and housekeeping did an excellent job cleaning, etc. We ate at the breakfast buffet twice and it was very good. The variety of food was also good as was the attentiveness of the waitstaff. We would go back here if the opportunity arose. I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending the Best Western Premier.

    « good shame about the pool »

    We were lucky enough to stay in the annex with the newest rooms. However the pool who was mentioned as available at the time of our booking did not materialise a few months later as still a work in progress. Could have been nice of them to arrange something with a neighbouring hotel. but I guess that is the level of " service " you get when the staff hardly care due to the high turnover of guests

    « Not bad - but overpriced »

    Not a bad stay, the rooms are your average hotel room. As another person stated, the best thing going for it is that its near the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Everything is overpriced in Tusayan due to that fact. Not a bad stay, rooms were clean, bed was comfortable, the front desk staff were nice. We spent two nights there, and if I had it to do over again, I may have stayed in Flagstaff - better variety of restaurants, and much more value for your hotel room (We stayed in Flagstaff the night before arriving in Tusayan)

    « Grand Canyon »

    We had the Deluxe King in 7000 building, all new, huge room, with a small balcony overlooking pool, very nice. Air filter was very dirty but staff changed it and cleaned vent. AC is set by computer to cut off if motion detector doesn't sense movement, so it cuts off during the night. We had to get up and WAVE AT THE SENSOR to get the AC to come back on. We've had that issue at other hotels, evidently an energy feature, but very annoying and uncomfortable.

    « Comfortable and Convenient to the Grand Canyon »

    Obviously, the fact that it is minutes away from the Grand Canyon is the best thing about this hotel. The room was big and comfortable. The bathroom was huge and even gave us a clothes line over the bath tub to dry out our stuff when we were caught in a down pour. Check-in and check-out were fast and convenient. It is a little too fancy, and you suspect that you are paying more for the big staircase and fountain. I would prefer less fancy, as I am not there for the hotel, but for the Canyon. That being said, I would stay there again my next trip to Grand Canyon...and in fact I did stay here 2 years ago. We ate at the breakfast buffet. It would have been OK for a free breakfast, but I think $12 per person was too much for this buffet. We also ate twice at the steak house which was just excellent food and we had a great time there. The service was very good, though a little slow the second time, as it seemed they were understaffed...but still very good. The filet mignon was about $30 with a huge salad for another $3.

    « Convenient location but value lacking »

    Value lacking for the price. Room and grounds were beautiful but this hotel used excessive conservation and energy-saving measures to the point where we did not enjoy our stay as well as we could have otherwise. Open concept of shower with half door that did not keep water in and cool air out. Room thermostat system preset that could not be regulated to our comfort level. Two restaurants for paying customers - one with buffet, one with menu. Exceptional food with custom-prepared omelettes and even gluten-free bread! Friendly front desk. My husband rates this hotel a 3.

    A bog standard chain hotel but had everything we needed, everything worked, comfy beds, great coffee maker and really cheery and helpful reception staff. Spotlessly clean. Like everything in Tusayan it's overpriced but that's the price you pay to be so close to one of the seven wonders of the world. Funky bowling alley inside the hotel although that's expensive too. I'd certainly use it again and recommend.

Would definitely recommend if your decision is to stay outside the Canyon park!

    « Best place to stay for Grand Canyon South Rim »

    We were just there 2 days ago. Here is what I can tell you. This place is huge and there are all sorts of things to do here. Basically for us, it was a place to sleep for our Grand Canyon trip. Come on some of you....if you come to the Grand Canyon and end up staying more than a few hours awake in this hotel you are doing something wrong. Although there are many things to do here. Our experience with all staff was great. Our AC was not cooling in our room like I thought it should...I called the front desk...within 5 minutes maintenance was there and fixed it. Yes, I think the restaurants are pricey....but...I was expecting to pay more there than I do here in the mid-west. You can do things to eat more economically if you want...share things...etc. Or, just bite the bullet and enjoy your vacation. I selected this hotel based on Trip Advisor. My travel agent actually found me a different property for a lesser price. But...from what I read, this sounded perfect for us and it was. I only have one less than positive comment. The bathtub in the room was huge. However, it is not level and while taking a shower when the tub gets wet and soapy, I thought it got a little slick. I suggested to the front desk perhaps a couple non-slick strips could be placed in the tub. This would be a good safety comment for management, I hope they consider it. I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat to everyone and will go there again if we ever get to go to the Grand Canyon again. And...if you don't want to pay alot for food...Mickey D's and things like that are just down the road. This is a great hotel!

    « Good Location Close to South Rim »

    With no lodging available in Grand Canyon village area, this hotel had availability and was conveniently located within 20 minutes of the South Rim. We had advance reservations and knew the hotel was undergoing renovations. The block of rooms where we were assigned was older rooms, but they were clean and adequate. Not knowing the area, there are other hotels to choose from. Perhaps after they renovate all of the block of rooms then the rooms will have a new decor which would be an improvement. Parking was adequate, but it was difficult to locate our block of rooms at night with no lighting to identify the building numbers or the room numbers, plus trying to figure out where to park without having to walk a distance with our baggage. The many blocks of rooms were ground level...thank goodness.

The food at the restaurants of the hotel is not great... but there isnt much choice in this small town. For so many tourists going every year I am surprised there wasnt more restaurants to choose from in this town. The food at the restaurant on site (the casual one) is HORRIBLE !! we returned our food. The 'fancy' restaurant is just okay but service is amateur by far.

    Stayed here for two nights while we revisited Grand Canyon. The room was adequate, in the style of Best Western hotels. It was quiet, and clean. There was a lot of upgrading going on so no pool. The hotel is well enough situated for the Canyon, in fact it was good to get away from the crowds at night. We ate dinner in the "fine dining room". Our first dinner was good in parts (fillet mignon), but my starter of Caesar salad was poor. Second night fared no better, with a shrimp cocktail that was so cold it was tasteless, and chicken masala with was salty, with almost raw vegetables . Buffet breakfast was appalling, but breakfast in the dining room was much better.

    « A Warning »

    I had booked a room at this hotel after reading a TripAdvisor listing showing the hotel as being 16.4 miles from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. I booked through the BW website, and didn't didn't look at an actual map, which is a mistake but not uncommon in these technology-driven times. On the morning we left St. George, Utah to drive to the North Rim, we discovered that this particular Best Western is actualy 212 miles away from the North Rim, close to the South Rim. I immediately called the hotel to ask that the reservation be cancelled and explained the circumstances as being mitigating, despite being beyond the 24 hour cancellation time requirement. Two days later, I realized that the reservation had not actually been cancelled, so called BW Customer Service and within minutes I received an email confirming that I would be issued a refund. Accommodation near the Grand Canyon is fairly expensive, so it was good to have this amount returned, especially since we had to scramble to find another hotel in Kanab, Utah at the last minute. So, my husband and I did not stay at this hotel, but I'm giving it five stars because I want this warning to be read (for other geographically challenged individuals like myself), and to thank the staff of the Grand Canyon Squire Inn (Chris and Logan), and also Trish at BW Customer Service (wherever you are, Trish) for handling this matter efficiently and with attention to customer service. This is why I am a member of Best Western's Reward Program, and why we often stayed at these hotels when we travel. I intend to contact TripAdvisor to try to amend this error on their listing. 16.4 miles from this hotel would require you to fly over the top of the Grand Canyon to get to the North Rim.

Five mins drive from the south rim park entrance and there are three eating options at the hotel, fine dining as well as more casual dining and a bar/pub downstairs. Nice gift store, options to book flights etc over the canyon. Breakfast buffet is excellent. Staff couldn't do enough to help. In Tusayen there are plenty of restaurants and stores. Tiny downside is that the housekeeping isn't brilliant - I would have liked to have seen the bathroom cleaned a little better and the bed linen is wearing thin.

The fitness center is small but has a sampling of machines to complete a full workout. On the lower level, there is an entertainment center that includes a bowling alley and across the hall is a bar. Our room had a great soaking tub, just right to relieve the aches of long hikes.

    This Best Western was a bit different. It is a group of buildings and some of them are free standing. That said, I have to say that the location is great. You are just a 10-15 minute drive to the park entrance so you cannot do a whole lot better unless you are inside the park. It is a little pricey for what it is but then again, you are paying for the location which is fantastic. The rooms are pretty soundproof and you need that because you are right in the flight path of the helicopters taking tourist into the Grand Canyon. They leave every 5-10 minutes or at least it seemed like that. There is a breakfast buffet but it is not included and is an additional charge. You could walk into town to two or three places and eat there too.

    This hotel was super odd. It literally felt like a hotel that should be in vegas back in the 80s. Lol Pros: location: was near the Grand Canyon. Not in the park, but close enough. Amenities: so I think these are part of the oddness, but I'll add them as a pro, since some people may like this aspect. The hotel has two restaurants, two bars ( one on the restaurant and a separate sports bar with pool tables and all) a bowling alley, and an arcade inside. If you had a group with different ages, then this may be helpful. Cons: Very old. While they have done a decent job keeping it clean, this hotel needs a make over and update. The rooms are spacious but feel like something from an 80s flick. And while it seemed clean, it felt dingy and used. I wasn't appalled, but i wouldn't be inclined to stay here again.

    « I enjoyed my stay »

    To commemorate the centennial of our national parks I spent one night at the Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn in Tusayan, AZ. This is Grand Canyon's south rim. I did the north rim several years ago. The Inn is about two miles from the entrance to the park. It is in an area of several hotels, many restaurants and some attractions, such as the National Geographic visitor center and IMAX Theater. I was able to check in just before 11 am and started touring. My room was definitely very nice. There are two queen beds and ten pillows. On the third floor it overlooks the closed pool. The heating and ventilation worked very effectively and quietly. The 40-inch Samsung TV is great; when I hooked my laptop to it I watched my own videos. There is a small safe, a refrigerator and a microwave! I appreciate there are electrical outlets everywhere. The thing I love the most is the lighting. Reading in bed has never been better. The staff was most helpful. I asked where I can buy an orange and a staff member gave me two! One of them suggested I try the BBQ in the hotel and the food was great. For $10.50 I had a slab of St. Louis ribs which was very flavorful. The sauce helped, of course. Considering the McDonald's across the street charges $2.99 for a $1 sausage biscuit this was more than reasonable. I was surprised I could not check out on the TV but a call to the front desk took care of it. I enjoyed my stay.

    No free breakfast. A real ripoff How many times do I have to say that there was no free breakfast and that for that reason alone I will never ever stay at that motel again. In order to get tow hundred characters minimum I have to say a lot if things that are unnecessary when my only problem was with the free breakfast.

    very nice hotel in a very convenient place for visiting the grand canyon. This hotel was prebooked by trailfinders but I have no complaints at all. would recommend this hotel and it is also very convenient if you want to take a helicopter ride over the canyon as the airport is only a two minute drive where two companies offer the rides (we used Maverick, who were excellent).

    Outstanding facility. Request a room in one of the new buildings (recommend 7000 Building). Older buildings are in desperate need of upgrading. This facility is a reasonable cost for the area, but everything is expensive in this area! The Coronado Room restaurant is upscale, but mediocre in quality. I had Buffalo Short Ribs. Tasted like beef stew. My wife had pork chops that were overcooked and dry. Plaza Bonita is best place in town to eat.

    « Very Handy for Grand Canyon »

    Staying in Tusayan for touring the Grand Canyon was great. Best Western has one of the bus stops if you want to take the bus into the Grand Canyon park. The rooms are very nice. The only downside was the quality of the restaurants and lack of a pool (currently under renovation). But it wasn't swimming-like weather (high in the 60's) and we spent most of our time in the Grand Canyon and ate there, the downsides didn't impact us. It's a very nice facility though.

    « Very nice hotel in great location »

    We were impressed with the hotel lobby area and also with our room. The lobby has a 3 story high waterfall that is visually attractive. Our room, with two queen beds was quite large, as was the bathroom. The room was comfortable and very quiet. The hotel halls and rooms have vintage photos from the early 1900's during the development of the Grand Canyon park. There is convenient access to parking around the hotel. A very pleasant place to stay that is close to the park entrance and dining and shopping.

    « One of the Best I have ever stayed in!!!! »

    I LOVED this hotel! Of all the hotels I have ever stayed in, this was one of the best! I have NEVER stayed in a room that was as clean as the room we stayed in. I believe it was the 7200 building which I was told was the newest and it did not disappoint. My husband and I traveled around the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas and this was by far our most favorite. I still cannot get over how clean it was. I usually feel like I need to take my Clorox wipes to everything in a room but this one was spotless. The room was huge and the bathroom was beautiful. The pool was not open because it was being remodeled but I didn't want to leave that room anyway. The staff was very nice and the check in and out was very fast. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It was very close to the Grand Canyon.

The service was also very good and everyone was going out of their way to be helpful.

    « Best hotel for Grand Canyon »

    Well located hotel for a visit to the Grand Canyon. We were in the main building, bedroom was huge, with two seating areas, comfortable bed and pillows, the bathroom was a delight - massive, so much room the tub could clearly cater for more than one person at a time. Quiet as well, which ensured we had a good nights sleep. Adequate parking. Used the fitness room/Jacuzzi after cycling 25 miles along the canyon - the Jacuzzi was very soothing on the limbs. Breakfast, great, $13.00 average, would suggest you choose the buffet as more choice and value for money, plus the chef cooks your eggs whilst you wait - perfect. The shuttle bus for the grand canyon stops right outside the hotel could not be more convenient.

    This is the best 'Best Western' I have stayed in. Its located on the main road in Tusayan which is a neat town with restaurants and hotels running alongside the highway. Internally the hotel is fitted out to a high standard and has a sizeable gift shop, bar, games room and ten pin bowling alley. The bedrooms are located in units and come complete with all you would need. They are decorated to a high standard. The staff are helpful and accommodating. The hotel is located 7 miles from the rim of the Grand Canyon and a shuttle bus to the rim can be caught across the road from the hotel.

    « Beautiful facility »

    Top-quality room with exceptionally comfortable bed (we were in the "7000" building which is a short walk back to the main bldg). Tusayan as you may know seems like the most convenient lodging area outside the park itself, so this place's location is great. Long wait at checkout, and breakfast not included as at other BW's (is that what is "Premier" about it?) Huge lobby feels like a populist resort, complete with Top100 tunes on the P.A.

    The hotel is in an excellent location and has extremely helpful staff members. The rooms are well maintained as is the overall property. The basement games and lounge have a cool retro vibe. I wish a free hot breakfast had been included since the price was so high. The price is high because of the great location and limited hotels in Tusayan, AZ.

    The hotel, room, and grounds are beautiful. There are multiple places to eat right in the hotel as well as a bowling alley and game room. It is a very large complex and is presently expanding, so we were disappointed that the pool and Jacuzzi were under construction and were closed. The staff was helpful and friendly.

    « Most overpriced hotelroom ever »

    The 3 good things are: Clean room, WiFi and cotton swabs (haven't used the fairly sized TV which was a third of the walls length) On the "con-side" a very small room (approx. 10.5 feet length and width) heavily overloaded. We had to place one suitcase in front of the door, the other in front of the cupboard... The ice-machine next door didn't make our stay relaxing and the overfilled parking lot did't compensate for the additionally charged breakfast... All-in-all quite basic for USD 249.99. At least IMHO...

    « Posh accommodations near Grand Canyon »

    Lodging in the Grand Canyon National Park was full by the time we planned our trip, but we were able to get a room in Tusayan at the Best Western Premier, only about 15 minutes' drive from Grand Canyon Village. We had never stayed at a "Premier" property before and were pleasantly surprised at the luxurious feel of the hotel. The place is huge, more of a resort. We just wanted a place to sleep between long, busy days at the park, so certainly didn't take full advantage of the facility. The front desk person was very friendly and helpful. The room was enormous. (If there had been two couples traveling together, this would have been an ideal room, with plenty of space and the extra sink.) We had requested a "quiet" room and they put us in the back of the building on the top floor. Although the hotel was sold out, we never heard any noise at all from other guests. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the bathroom was spa-like, with a big tub, huge vanity, and an additional dressing table and sink in the room. My only complaint was that the room fan was very cold and blew right on the bed, although it was at least consistent and quiet. It was near morning before I found the one spare blanket (for two beds) in the closet. Maybe someday someone will invent the perfect hotel HVAC system?

    « Very pleasant surprise »

    Debated between this hotel and another close by, but ended up selecting this one for our 2 night stay. It is a really nice place and would recommend without hesitation as it feels and looks classier than the average Best Western. In booking we had read the notice of the ongoing construction and that the pool was closed. We saw the construction but never heard any noise or was inconvenienced by it. It appeared to be focused toward the back of the hotel. We booked two rooms, one with a double and one with a king bed. And, as requested the rooms, were connecting and both were ready when we checked in. The rooms very spacious and had our ideal setup: Two sinks one in the bathroom and one outside (see pictures) which facilitates getting going quicker in the morning. We parked in the back of the hotel which was close to an entrance and our top floor rooms. This hotel was a good choice. Tip: I had booked this hotel months ago. But when our dates changed slightly, had to rebook the rooms, and the price was $50 less per room, so I recommend checking the prices before arrival.

    We read the reviews before booked this hotel. The reviews are not outstanding. In Tusayan, there aren't too much options. So we booked it. However, when we arrived, it surprised me. The environment is beautiful. The hotel is large. The facility in the room is very good. The beds are very comfortable. Highly recommended! The restaurants are excellent too. They are very popular. You better make a booking for dinner. There are several buildings. Rooms in the same building with restaurant are handy. The other buildings are quieter. However, the whole hotel is very quiet.

    « Absolutely loved this hotel! »

    We stopped at this hotel for just the one night en route a full on tour of the West Coast including the Grand Canyon. Wow! This hotel really has the lot. Very modern and clean, well laid out. Rooms were off the scale in terms of size, facilities, bathroom, beds, 50" TV etc etc. We were shocked rigid (in a positive way of course) when we opened the door to our room...we certainly wasn't expecting the rooms to be of such a high standard in all respects! Then there is the reception and public areas. There's 2 eateries, one that's classed as fine dining and another which we chose which is a really happening bar with music and several TV screens and great staff serving very good bar type food. There's a great big reception area set out with nice furniture, a well stocked gift shop and a fabulous games room with all sorts of options available, including..... Wait for it - a full sized 6 lane ten pin bowling facility. Absolutely awesome. We couldn't praise this hotel any higher! Very highly recommended. There's no doubt lots of other things I've forgot to mention about this fab hotel. The only downside is that we are only here for one night!! Shame :-( We hope to return some day.

    A quality hotel with lots to do and close to the Grand Canyon - the hotel was very clean, mostly great staff, three restaurants on property -- the bed was firm and the internet worked great.

They do have scented Kleenex which thru me into an allergy attack and housekeeping said they had no unscented - so I went and purchased my own from the grocery store.

    I chose this hotel largely on the basis of my usual positive experiences with Best Western.

I was particularly disappointed with the cramped design of the bathroom in my room and I felt that the breakfast buffet was not value for money.

I haven't been to a hotel in years that didn't have locking doors that you didn't have to use your room key to get in & out! NOT HERE! doors were wide open! we left for a tour @ 4AM & anyone could have walked right into the building! we would NEVER recommend this hotel! NO SECURITY!!

We knew in advance that the pool was out of action due to building works, bit the stand out thing was the 'musty smell' that was in block 3000.Hard to describe really almost like it was the last block to allow smoking and they had never lost the smell. Otherwise quite a good hotel, though the fitness suite was anaemic.

    This hotel more than exceeded our expectations. We had just come from Page AZ and had paid more for a room (same hotel chain)that was no way in the same league as this hotel. I would have never thought that a hotel with so much to offer, so clean, so professional, great service, friendly staff would be found so far from a main city. The price of the room was better than I would have imagined for all the hotel has to offer. We ate at one of the hotels restaurants (they have at least 3 different eating venues, we did not try the fine dining venue) and the food was good. If and when we come back, this will be our destination lodging of choice!!

    « Dirty Room and Unfriendly Staff »

    The first room we were in was dirty; the carpets were grossly dirty & the bathroom hadn't been cleaned. The room just seemed outdated and worn (I'm sure cuz of the large turnover number of visitors at the Grand Canyon). When we went back to the front desk to ask for a different room, the desk personnel were RUDE and couldn't believe the bathroom wasn't cleaned & actually sent someone to go look at the room. FINALLY, we were given another room and I can't say the second room was any better, but at least the bathroom was clean. The beds weren't comfortable, the bed cover was dirty with cigarette burns ..... THIS IS NOT A Best Western PREMIER hotel and certainly way overpriced for the sub-standard quality rooms. Do yourself a favor and don't stay here. The hotel choices in this area are limited, but go to another hotel.

    « Below Standard, find somewhere else »

    Hotel on the town closest to South Rim of Grand Canyon. Check in was busy, but even so information given was patchy. Checked in to a room in 2000 Block, smelled musty and felt grubby. After shower, walked back in to room then back to bathroom with wet feet and left black footprints, carpet in bedroom area was filthy. Bed felt damp, in the morning explanation was window was soaking wet from condensation, but as on ground floor wouldnt be comfortable with open window. After discussion at front desk changed to a room in 4000 Block next morning which was cleaner and fit for purpose. It's a very busy hotel at one of the worlds foremost locations, but even so standard should be at least acceptable when paying $200+ per night. I did get a consideration on the final bill, but that's not the point. Can't comment on other hotels in Tusuyan, but if I returned I would find one of the others to stay in. On the plus side breakfast was good with fresh cooked omlettes, and the concierge who booked the helicopter trip (Richard from memory) was very helpful.

    We stayed one night at this hotel. Other than the fact that this hotel is a 20 minute drive to the south rim, this hotel is dirty, overpriced (at over $250 a night!), and has poor service. First, the sheets on our bed were pilling, which made them scratchy and uncomfortable. I also found several holes in them. Get new sheets!! Second, the wifi was down the whole time we were there. Third, the maid loudly knocked on our door before 7 AM. Finally, while I understand it may be natural to see an insect or two around these parts, there were insects crawling around on the nightstand, on the desk, and in the bathroom. We could not wait to get out of there. Would not stay again.

    The hotel is overpriced, tired and dated. We had two adjoining rooms for two nights in August and both were dirty. There was a thick layer of white dust around the base of the beds and along the walls. There was dirt and hair in the corners of the bathrooms and along the base of the shower (see pictures). We asked to see a room in another block, hoping it was just our block, but the room was exactly the same. We asked to have the rooms recleaned. It made no difference. Additionally, the WiFi was down, the pool was out of order and there was a large construction project going on in the centre of the complex. Most disappointing. However, the hotel is in a good location to access the south rim and the staff on reception were friendly and as helpful as they could be. Plus the kids enjoyed the arcade.

Because it was raining, it was late and we were tired from our long day in GCNP we ate at the hotel restaurant. I'll place the review of the restaurant on their site.

    « One night is too much »

    There isn't much choice in the area and so I booked this hotel as I thought it would be fine for one night. Never again. It's like staying at Disneyworld, with crowds coming in and going out at any time of the day and the night. The rooms are very quiet, though. Pros: - 20 minute drive to the Grand Canyon entrance - possibility to have dinner inside (a steakhouse and a casual diner, one closes at 9pm, the other one at 10 pm) and breakfast as well - decent rooms Cons: - worst sheets ever in the beds (very worn out) - motel appearance - poor quality service (reception, restaurant they couldn't care less, too many people for just one night) - poor food quality - horrible common spaces (Las Vegas tacky feeling) - spa and gym in the basement PS: Remember to take a sweater with you cos it's like staying in the mountains....wonderful balmy fresh air!

    « One night in Grand Canyon »

    The location is good, as there are several restaurants along the street in Tusayan and the shuttle bus into the park is also across the street. The rooms are unfortunately very outdated. But for one night it was okay. The lady at reception did not have her best day when we arrived, so it was a good thing she sent us over to the concierge, who did a good job, although his accent wasn't the easiest to understand. As we were not too thrilled with the Hotel we decided to have breakfast at Plaza Bonita up the street, where we had had a delicious Mexican dinner the night before. Breakfast was also what we had hoped for.

    « Good hotel near the Grand Canyon »

    Arriving at the Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn, I was surprised by how big it was. There are at least 5 3-story buildings with some construction going on. The hotel is convenient to the National Park shuttle to the Grand Canyon, which has a stop right in front of it. Check in took a few minutes as there were a few others checking in at the same time. The associate was friendly, quick, able to answer a question and get us our room keys in under 1 minute. The room is relatively large, with big screen TV, a big soaking tub/shower, wet bar, mini-fridge, Keurig coffeemaker and microwave. Wifi was complimentary. Breakfast was not. They have several venues on-site for dining. For breakfast, there is the Canyon Room and a buffet. We tried the buffet for breakfast ($12). There was an extensive hot table as well as a omelet station, where you could choose your fixings and a cook would make your omelet. I would not recommend you have dinner in the Canyon Room. The menu is limited and service was not very good. There is also the Coronado Room and the Squire Pub, neither of which we tried during our stay. The first floor of the main building has a fitness room, bowling alley, the Pub and an arcade.

    « August visit »

    We were happy with our room after asking for a different room on check in after we had seen the first one. It was given to us without any questions. The room we stayed in was bright and cheery and opened out to the walkway across from the main building.

    « If you stay in the 7000 rooms »

    The new rooms in the 7000 wing are really nice and modern and huge. Loved the new open shower. The main hotel is showing its age and I was told will be upgraded to look like the new wing. There is bowling and an arcade for pay in the basement of the main resort. The workout room has a hot tub but all seemed dingy and poorly lit - kind of depressing actually.

    « 3 "C's" of a hotel Comfy, Clean and Convenient! »

    Comfy and clean accommodations. Easy parking, very close to the FREE purple line shuttle to the Grand Canyon, walking distance for all things in Tusayan. We had a double bedded room on the second floor of the main building. There are elevators but also very accessible stairs which we used most of the time. The rooms were clean and housekeeping quick and efficient. The staff super friendly and helpful. Check in was easy, and we were able to quickly get extra pillows and towels. There are several options for food in the hotel itself. The dining listed on the website, and a buffet. The buffet is supposed to be open for breakfast and lunch, but when I went today at 12:30 it was a ghost town, no note or announcement visible. There is a gaming area with arcade, pool tables, foosball, and a bowling alley right in the hotel. Also, there is a spa with hot tub. The pool is under construction now. The rooms are large enough to move around, and ours offered a sink inside the large bathroom and one outside making it easier to have multiple people getting ready at the same time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place to stay near the Grand Canyon.

    « great value for money »

    « Perfect location »

    We decided to stay in Tusayan as it is the best Location to visit the Grand Canyon southrim, and it is less expensive than staying at the Grand Canyon Village. So we stayed at the BW Premier Squire Inn and we had a really nice stay! The staff was very friendly and helpful. they didn't gave us a room in the mainbuilding, so first I was a little bit disappointed, but our building was a small building at the last row and it was so quiet during the day and night, I really liked to stay there. The room was very spacious and very clean. There were even enough parkingspaces for us, so we never had to park our car infront of the mainbuilding.

    « New and convenient »

    My husband, sister and our baby spent a night here. The hotel seemed to be new and the staff very helpful and friendly. Super convenient to the entrance of the south rim and walking distance to restaurants. We did not try the food since the breakfast was not included so we opted out paying $13 dollars for the buffet, instead we went and had a small breakfast near by. Although a little pricy, we felt good staying at the best western.

    « Trip to Grand Canyon »

    The hotel was nice, however it did not have a pool (they are building one), breakfast or express checkout (a paper version). We stayed one night and then moved to a non-chain hotel for the next night. The price was much lower and the quality the same (this hotel did not have a restaurant but we did not need one).

    « Good place for families »

    Just 5 minutes from the gate and the south Rim, its location is excellent. We stayed with a family of 5 in one room with two queens and a rollaway bed and were happy with the space we got. Big compliment for the staff, nearly evert single member of the staff was very helpfull and did everything to make us feel satisfied. Big pro's of the hotel are: good wifi, entertainment area with bowling, pool tables & arcade games, good restaurant on ground floor (bit pricy, but nice setting and food). Overall good value for money.

    « Good in parts »

    Firstly, remember that Tusayan is a bit of a tourist trap and has nothing special in its immediate surroundings. The BW is big and consists of a series of 2 storey blocks arranged around car parking. Checkin was ok - advice received from the staff before hand and after was inconsistent but Regis (the manager) was very good. At first glance the accom blocks don;t look great but the rooms are fine. Air con is as ever in the US quite noisy. Facilities include 10 pin bowling but no pool. restaurant is fairly poor but breakfast (if you can find a table) is pretty good.

    « Great option by the park »

    Stayed at the Best Western Squire for two nights while visiting the grand canyon. The nice lady at the reception put us in a brand new building the had just built (and they are expanding with even more buildings), so everything in my room was new and nice. They have a general store with food, detergent for laundry and souvenirs and three restaurants (I think), a bar, an arcade and a bowling alley. Really nice, and it's less than 10 minutes from the park. Whenever I come back (and I'm coming back), I'm definitely staying at Best Western!

    « Second best was good enough »

    We planned our trip very late and really struggled to find accommodation. So if your coming to the Grand Canyon book as early as possible. El Tavor was where we wanted to stay - booked out months in advance. Best Western is close to everything you need: sights and food. We arrived at 3.30am in the morning and checkin staff were very quick to get us to our room. The room had two good sizeable double beds and room for all of our suitcases. There is a basic need to upgrade the facilities and I note they are building more rooms rather than refreshing. We had a great breakfast before we headed out and the staff were really pleasant. I though this was good value too. We came back after a sunset trip to the canyon and finding a place to eat was just not happening so we came back to the hotel. We were found a table and served very quickly. Good was good, a bit slap dash and I understand because they were very busy but attention to details do matter. The hotel has a great gift shop and we did our souvenir shopping in there. Very pleasant young lady helping us out. You can also be picked up by your tour companies from the hotel.

    « Travel Lodge with additional noise. Not happy. »

    Our room must have been booked at least 6 months ago by our Travel Agent and still we are allocated a room in one of the dormitories on the side instead of in the new, main building. The room smelt of wet socks and even after leaving the window open all night, it still smelt of wet socks! The entrance is grubby with with worn out carpets. The room was also on the flight path to the Grand Canyon Airport. Small aircrafts are flying immediately above the room. However, the bed is comfortable, the towels thick and large. You need to read the shower instructions carefully. There is a good coffee machine. There is more noise in this hotel than in the middle of a city.

    « Perfect for a trip to Grand Canyon »

    As a family of 5, we stayed in an oversized queen deluxe room. Upon arrival, reception staff arranged for us to check in straight away, a found a room for us, despite being 4 hours early for check in. This enabled us to get straight to Grand Canyon. They gave us some good advice as to exactly where to visit to view the national park, and to get the best out of our day visit. The room was more than adequate for the 5 of us, and with two of our kids being 16 and 17, it was virtually 4 adult a and 1 child. The rooms were nicely presently, clean and tidy abd felt very new. They had everything we needed to be comfortable. Beds were very comfortable and clean. Bathroom was a reasonable size, clean and tidy. The restaurant on site was quite expensive, and despite being for a family atmosphere, bizarrely played rock music just a touch too loud! The food was average as was the service. There are quite a few restaurants within walking distance, and I would advise to try these out rather than eat in the hotel. All staff were friendly and I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

    « Grand Canyon »

    The motel was a little old and the wear showed. It was very clean. They are in the middle of constructing a new pool, which we wouldn't have used anyway. One reason we booked this property is because they are "Biker Friendly" We vacation every year and the in the past 3 years this was the only BW that had a gift bag for bikers. I received 2 bottles of water, a bandana, first aid kit, towel, and zipped pouch. This was impressive. Even the BW in Milwaukee did not have this. The only negative was that the food in the restaurant was absolutely terrible. It had a limited menu and I had the pulled pork plate, half of it was fat. Not very tasty! The service there was great, though. I would stay there again

    « Good but one problem.... »

    Great location....good family place with the arcade and bowling alley. The pub could use some more tables and servers. It's very crowded. The food overall is OK, not great. My one complaint is with the bathroom. While the updated bathroom is big and nicely decorated there is a major design flaw with the shower. The shower has no door just a narrow piece of glass. There is zero privacy which is a problem when sharing as a family, the water goes all over the floor and you are freezing when you shower because it's wide open. Put a real door on the shower.

    « Good position but not great »

    This was the only hotel left near the Grand Canyon as far as we were told and we were very disappointed The reception ladies were very efficient but hardly welcoming as though they had a job and that was all they were going to do The rooms were ok apart from the big bug on the carpet inside the door - we have travelled extensively in Africa and don't expect big bugs in our bedroom The beds were two small double beds to cater for families I suppose so a bit hot sleeping close to each other The breakfast was not good I would avoid the hotel if you can

    « Perfect location for visiting the Grand Canyon if you can't stay inside the park »

    We only decided to add on the Grand Canyon to a visit to Phoenix for a wedding just 6 weeks before arriving, so we were unable to get accommodations inside the park. This was the best alternative to staying inside the park. You are literally at the entrance to the park, so access is easy. We had an issue with the hotel lacking hot water in our building due to a transformer issue. It was a huge inconvenience to have to walk to another building to take a shower in another room, so the hotel agreed to comp that night's stay and to throw in buffet breakfast for the four of us.. When we went to check out, the manager realized how difficult it was and ended up comping the second night as well. He didn't have to do that, but the management truly handled a difficult situation with professionalism. Pro: We stayed in the new building, which was wonderful. We got to see the older bulding where we took showers and I can truly say it was a bit outdated. We were lucky to have the new building. I think it was #7. Great location. Con: While we were comped the breakfast buffet, which was ample, I don't think I would have paid for the meal itself. I overheard a gentleman purchasing his buffet and I think it was close to $25 per person.

    « No complaints »

    I've stayed in 45 or so motel / hotels in the past 60 or so days and this one certainly rose to the top. Now granted, what I paid for the room was near the top also. But the fact that we were at the Grand Canyon has to be taken into consideration as well. We were there for two days and everything was as expected (which has been a rare thing on this trip).

    « Great Place for the Grand Canyon »

    This is a nice hotel for families. We were in a newer section, and it was lovely. Clean, open and airy. We had laundry in the building, great when spending 90 degree days hiking! The pool area was under construction, but looks like it will be lovely when complete. Breakfast was offered in a restaurant (just ok) or upstairs was a buffet. It was good, quick. Great place to stay while visiting the South Rim.

    Good clean hotel, apart from a couple of things. When any other room flushed or uses water there is such a noise for a few seconds, not good.

Small town with minimal food and what there is, is substandard for the US and expensive.

    Excellent location, good rooms (building 7000 somehow new) but terrible staff at reception ! Rooms weren't ready, we were put in the Kids room waiting as it would the most natural thing ... As it was obvious that the room next to us (the one we were waiting for) was finished and ready we expected they would deliver us as promised the key .... Nothing happened ... So back to reception for an inquiry, and finally we got the key. To the remark this entire process was kind of messy the answer was: "I can't see why" ... Well Miss I do !

    « They have 'hot tea!' »

    It had lovely big rooms and we enjoyed our stay here. Texts home to my family had begun to follow a theme in that I am a 'hot drink' person and can't take icy cold drinks whatever the climate?. I need my tea! It was with relief that I could indulge and drink 4 teas at breakfast. Breakfast selection was quite good and nice to see fresh fruit as some places on our trip served canned. We would recommend this hotel if you are visiting the South rim ( although having visited the North rim in 2014, we prefer that?.both are pretty awesome though. )

    We stayed here with our three teenage kids whilst on our US road trip. It wasn't advertised as plush, but we found it to be one of the best value for money. It's clean, the food good and it's central location is a big bonus. Some complaints from other reviewers about noise from current expansion work, but we didn't notice, but then you're at the Canyon all day so why would you be in you're room? Happily stay here again.

    We stayed here as a base to visit the Grand Canyon for two nights in July 2016. Comfy, large rooms and although we were road side, we didn't hear any traffic. We thought the breakfast buffet was reasonably priced compared to other hotels we visited and they had a wide variety of choice: waffles, omelettes made to order, fresh fruit, cereal, hot food, etc. Staff all very friendly and helpful. The shuttle buses were great to and from the Canyon. Overall a pleasant stay and whilst I'm sure a stay in the park itself would be the best option, this is a great alternative.

    « Solid Hotel - do not chose "economy" room when traveling with two adults »

    The Best Western Squire Inn is a solid hotel at the gateway to Grand Canyon National Park. Located in Tusayan about 2miles from the National Park entrance is a perfect location to start excursions if you were not able to book a room inside the Park. In Tusayan you find several restaurants, shops and an IMAX theatre showing Grand Canyon movies. Also the Airport is very close which results in some helicopter noise from the "Papillion Terminal" when they start to the Canyon roundtrip flights. The hotel offers two restaurants, quality and pricing are OK but nothing special. One day we used the happy hour offer with discounted drinks and tapas. Please be aware to mention if you want to use the offer, as you are seated in a different area called fireplace lounge. Beside the standard rooms, the hotel is also offering "economy" rooms which are much smaller than the really decent standard rooms. From our experience in both room types I would not recommend to book the economy room if you are traveling with two adults. The room overall is still OK, but the bed is very tiny making it hard for two adults to sleep properly. Room was clean and all amenities available.

    « OK stay at BW Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn »

    The Location: A short drive to the Grand Canyon National Park South Rim entrance. The Room: Clean adequate double Queen-sized room. All amenities present as expected. Good sized bathroom. Comfortable beds. The Staff: All staff were pleasant to us. Parking: Included in room tariff. A parking permit required to be displayed was provided. Food: We only tried breakfast here. On offer was: a waffle station; eggs/omelet station; a small buffet of fruits and sweet toppings for the waffles; yoghurt, and bread/pastries. Given that we were in a "remote area" we took the view that what we had 'plugged the hole'. Overall Impression: If you can't stay in the National Park then you stay in Tusayan for proximity. It was fine for one night. Quiet area. Cost was incredibly high despite booking reasonably well ahead.

    « Very Nice Hotel »

    We stayed one night while visiting Grand Canyon National Park. It is conveniently located near restaurants, a general store for souvenirs and groceries, and an IMAX theater/gift shop. We used the shuttle service that picked us up right in front of the hotel and dropped us off at the visitor's center inside the park. This was a wonderful service as we avoided the very long lines of cars waiting to enter the park. The shuttle is free, but only available in the summer. Be sure and pay for your park entrance fee before riding the shuttle at one of the convenient locations in Tusayan. The hotel was just lovely. It had a gift shop and restaurant and we loved the decor. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. It was a little pricey but for the most part worth it for the convenience to the Grand Canyon. The only disappointing part was to find out there was no pool. There was bowling and a game room, which my son used, but would have preferred swimming. I would stay again if in the area.

    « Very nice family hotel - ask for 'new buildings' »

    The Best Western in Tusayan was a pleasant surprise for us. We have stayed in Best Western's before and the quality varies. This one is great - at least for us. They put us in one of their new buildings with very spacious, new, modern rooms. And: we called in the morning whether they could place us (family, 3 kids) next to each other with connecting doors. No problem Sir, we'll do our best. And their best they did, because we got it. The rooms are really big considering the hotel class you are in. Besides, they have a fridge and a microwave. Wifi was good and the service was excellent. You park right outside the building which makes loading easy and the location versus the Grand Canyon Park is excellent. Only thing that might be improved: breakfast. You pay about 12 $ which is good, but the choice in the buffet is limited. Otherwise it would have been 5 stars.

    What a great stay! First the basics..great location, check in was easy and friendly. The room was updated and nicely decorated. It was clean, and the beds and pillows were comfortable. It's very close to the helicopter tours. We didn't hear any noise from them. However, it's the details that make this a wonderful hotel. The bathroom is heated, with two sinks, and a deep tub sized for two. Plus, the provided toiletries are big! However, the tub was dangerously slippery. It should have nonslip decals or a mat. And, the towels smelled like chlorine. There are quiet close, double doors between the lobby and the room hallways. So our room, which was the first/closest to the lobby was quiet. There was a Keurig in the room. A suggestion is for the hotel to provide bottled water, as well. It's in a desert. The Coronado restaurant is expensive. The food was delicious and the service exemplary. Save room for the creme brulee.

    « Hotel is conveniently located near Grand Canyon National Park »

    As you enter the park there are various stops at view points. You can see these when you first enter the park before you check in to your hotel. After that you can take the bus transportation to the view points and leave your car at the hotel. We stayed at this hotel while visiting Grand Canyon National Park (south rim). The hotel is located in downtown Tusayan, AZ and is within walking distance of restaurants. The room was very nice and quiet. We got a good night's sleep every night we were there. Just outside our hotel is a bus stop for Grand Canyon National Park. The bus comes by frequently and takes you to the main bus terminal for the park. There are three lines within the park. One takes you around the village and stops at the in park hotels. You can transfer from that bus to the main line which takes you along the ridge bordering the Canyon with 9 stops. You can get off and on the bus at these stops to see the views of the Canyon. This bus route ends at Hermits Rest where you can buy souvenirs, food and see more views. It then returns to just before the in park hotels. You can then transfer to the in village bus which will take you back to the main terminal where you can take another bus route to other view points on the east side of the park. The bus service was very convenient.

    « Good location for exploring the Grand Canyon National Park South Rim. »

    We arrived at the hotel at 2pm (no trouble parking) and were able to check in for our two nights straight away. We had a free upgrade to a junior suite which was in the main building just along from reception. The view from our room looked onto the building works but as we were out most of the time we were not disturbed by any noise. The room was very comfortable. The first night we ate in the coffee shop having a simple chicken with corn bread basket meal. Nothing special but this was reflected in the price. We did not have the hotel breakfast as we had brought our own breakfast bars and made coffee in the room. The hotel gave us a map of the local area. Beware! As with a lot of American maps it was not to scale. The Grand Canyon was definitely car or bus ride away. Luckily the bus to the visitor centre stops right outside the hotel. PS Wifi was good.

    This is the fifth US hotel we've stayed in over the last two weeks - so I have points of reference.... Check in rude. No pool- "we're refurbishing ..." No apology or prior notice just a couple of free bowling passes. Not the type of physical exercise we had in mind. When we used them we played three games and were told the pass only covered one. I refused to pay for the others - they backed down immediately. I can't believe this was the first time this had happened. Nice try. Food - that word that they won't let me type but rhymes with rap... One evening meal - main restaurant- no non-meat options. Really - not even fish. Pathetic. Other one - bland hotel muck. Waiter - Jesus - was pretty good. Ate breakfast three times. All too big, too greasy and expensive - for what it was. Staff - bordering on the competent. We were in the 3000 block. Smelled like an old peoples home. Dark hallway. Dark small room. Really poor. And the place looks like a building site. Apart from that, it was great .,, If you're staying in this area I'm guessing you'll be out most of the day so hotel matters less but - if you can find an alternative to this pile of junk then please do. They do not deserve your money. I don't usually leave revues like this - checkout my others. This place really is that bad. Avoid.

    « Very nice hotel good service »

    Regis the manager was excellent in taking care of us since we found out there was no pool because of construction. Regis gave us free bowling tickets and free breakfast for the family because of the inconvenience. Jesus the bartender was also very helpful as well. The made to order omelets and breakfast was very good as well.

    « Perfect location »

    Perfect location for visiting the Grand Canyon. The reception area was lovely. There was a friendly casual bar and children's room downstairs. The bar meals were good and as it was cold the fires burning and blow heaters were cosy. The restaurant was very good, we had a great thanksgiving dinner there. All the staff were helpful and friendly. Reception advised on where to eat, the concierge on tours and the restaurant staff looked after us. The room was average but clean with coffee making facilities which you could top up. Wi fi was good. It was an outside walk to the main body of the hotel which wasn't ideal in the snow but I'm pretty relaxed about stuff like that and we had no children or disabled. We were on a touring holiday and it was ideal. A nice place to spend Thanksgiving with mostly American visitors. We did a day tour of the Canyon with Canyon Dave tours, they were great and picked us up from the hotel. We did a helicopter trip with Papillon helicopter centre which was 2 minutes away and highly recommended. All in all I really enjoyed our stay here, we felt welcome and comfortable.

    « Beautiful Hotel! »

    This hotel was beautiful. They were doing a lot of construction, but it didn't bother us. The only bad thing about this hotel was that there was no pool, but I think they are putting one in now. The rooms were beautiful and roomy with a vanity area - a very nice touch! Laundry room needed some work - no or very little A/C and it was very hot in there. Breakfast was delicious - omelets made to order, and plenty of other stuff to choose from. I think it was about $12/pp. There were bowling lanes downstairs but the wait was forever to get a lane, so our teens didn't get to do that. They did hang out in the game room and played pool which they enjoyed. It was much larger than I expected it to be - we loved it!

    « Not worth the price »

    Stayed there for one while visiting the Grand Canyon. The best part of this hotel is the location. There are photos on tripadvisor showing a pool. This hotel does not have a pool. The rooms are average at best. Old and outdated. The restaurants were the biggest joke. Way overpriced. My son had the "kids" fish and chips. It came with 1 piece of fish and it was $11.00. I had a Caesar salad that was big enough to feed a 2 year old for $16.00. Don't waste your money here.

    We recently stayed here and the expansion and amenities are amazing. The rooms in the new section are spacious and have enough plugs for all electronics. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast offerings would please anyone including children. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Canyon

    Very well located in Tusayan, 5 miles south of the entrance to the South Rim Shuttle bus stop outside hotel. Staff very welcoming, room spacious with safe and fridge. On site facilities super, bowling lanes, swimming pool, gym. Lots for teenagers to do after a day sightseeing of the Grand Canyon.

    « Better than expected based on picture-take the free shuttle to rim! »

    We thought this would be a old-fashioned hokey touristy spot, instead it was a modern fairly big hotel, with a nice lobby, a fountain and sculpture within, two restaurants, and a nice clean modern room. Helpful concierge. Good food. Excellent location, five minutes from the airport if you choose to do a helicopter ride, walking distance to the National Geographic visitor center, which by the way is basically just a gift shop with an IMAX, but has a cool courtyard in the center of it describing the new Arizona Trail, something I hadn't heard of yet. We made the mistake of driving from here to the rim 13 miles away, if I had known better would have taken the free shuttle to the rim to avoid the parking hassles. The shuttles are great and run frequently to the various South rim spots, and leave from the same block as this hotel.

    « One of the prettiest Best Western properties I have seen. »

    The hotel was in a great location (about 10 minutes from park entrance). The hotel was large and had a gift shop and restaurant (there aren't a lot of local restaurants). There aren't a lot of great places to stay in Grand Canyon so we didn't have a lot of choices when booking so were satisfied with this property. The hotel staff wasn't the friendliest but it was a busy time. Also, the room could have been a little cleaner (there was hardened soap on the sink faucet, a tear in one of the sheets, and dirt in some corners. But overall probably one of the best places to stay just outside of the park.

    « Rooms are fine. Breakfast was awful »

    We spent 2 nights end of April It was our second stay in this typical Best Western. Our first stay in August 2015 was somewhat better: better room and above all breakfast which was much better When we paid for the breakfast buffet (and you pay before) they forgot telling us that they will stop service 45mns before closing: no eggs no bacon, no fruits. Basically you had much better with complimentary breakfasts in other Best Western. You can get much better going in other restaurants I spent 3 weeks in National Parks in April 2016 and 4 weeks in August 2015, most generally in Best Western and this one was the worst breakfast we had, while the most expensive! Otherwise Staff is very nice and very helpful but once more except for breakfast. I sincerely regret tipping before eating as otherwise I would not have even given one dollar. When I just said that we would have expected somewhat more generous than a coffee and 2 muffins I was answered I should not have come so late: hey it was 8h45 and still 45mns before it ends! Restaurant is very fine and staff very nice with very good wines. Very big contrast with breakfast. I think it was certainly a bad day for breakfast Next time I go to Grand Canyon I will come back to the Best Western. It remains a nice hotel But I will have my breakfast elsewhere

    « Good, clean hotel outside of park »

    When we made our reservations, we requested connecting rooms so that our family could all be together. Upon check in, we were informed that we had been assigned to 2 rooms in the same wing but on different floors. When we asked about the connecting rooms, we were told that the hotel was sold out. No attempt was made to see if we could be accommodated. Gone are the days when hotel staff would search the rooms that were not yet occupied to see if any connecting rooms were available. One of our rooms was on the 1st floor & one on the 3rd floor. The view from the 3rd floor room was fine, overlooking a parking lot. The 1st floor room had a window that was just about level with the ground and was facing construction that was about 20 feet away from the window. Construction noise began daily at around 8 am. Both rooms were clean and relatively updated. One room was a double & one had a king bed with a sitting area with pullout couch. Rooms have a small fridge, a microwave & a Keurig coffee maker. The bathroom was nice with a deep tub but getting into the tub required you to make a big step over the side & into the tub. The hotel is clean and convenient to the Grand Canyon. This hotel is not in the Grand Canyon Park but is a nice option in the town if Tuscayon (about 10 miles from the park). There is a shuttle bus that you can take to the park but you need to buy a ticket for the bus at the IMAX building that is up the street. There are two restaurants on site. This hotel is a very good option for families & for anyone who cannot secure a reservation inside the actual park.

    « Great Value Breakfast »

    We stayed here for one night during a visit to Grand Canyon. The location is excellent, just a fifteen minute drive from the canyon itself. We arrived quite late, but the staff on reception were excellent and booking in was very swift and hassle free. We did not have dinner on the premises but the hotel is within walking distance of the restaurants in town. We did however have a drink in the bar there and really enjoyed the ambience, the bar staff were really friendly and very informative. We checked out the breakfast choices in the town the next morning and decided to eat breakfast in the hotel and what a good choice it was. Very reasonably priced buffet and a great selection. I would definitely like to visit Grand Canyon again and if I did I would stay here again without hesitation.

    We only spent one night here after visiting the Grand Canyon. The staff was very friendly & efficient. Our room was clean & well prepared for us. The property is spacious with ample, convenient parking. A huge plus for us was the hotel's proximity to The Grand Canyon............after an exhausting afternoon of sightseeing, it was only a quick 10 minute drive to the hotel.

    « "Worth It" »

    The room rate is worth it. It's indeed a little bit pricey but once you get there, it was all worth it. We received an outstanding service during our 3days 2nights stay. We met this young lady who works in the morning at the restaurant and does housekeeping at night. She was full of energy and smile while doing her job. You can see her running around and helping her co workers and at the same time checking on tables. We were really surprised to see her at night too, she is the one who came to reclean our entire room. She's doing an outstanding job. My husband offered her $20 as a tip but she declined and said she's more than happy to do her job. We were touched. For sure. What a sweet little girl. Everything else in the hotel is amazing. We will surely come back on december to see her and also witness winter at the grand canyon.

    « Good Location, but they need a pool if they want to cater to familes »

    We were "walk ins" and the Front Desk Staff were very helpful, when checked in. The room was average, they noise of the individual A/C unit in the room was totally disturbing our sleep. We have not stayed in best Western Hotels before, so we didn't know what to expect. However for the prices they charge, the amenities are at a minimum.

    « Close to the Canyon »

    We stayed 2 nights here on our National parks road trip. All park resorts were full when we were planning on being at the Grand Canyon, so we were so happy to have found such a great place to stay. With two teenage kids, it had plenty of room, and was comfortable. The Bathrrom was very large, and up to date. Hotel staff was helpful and friendly. We ate at the Squire Pub after a full day at the park - it was delicious (we all had burgers) and we had a great waiter too. There was a lot of construction going on and there wasn't a pool available - having no pool would've been a problem if the kids were younger. But they did have a bowling alley to keep kids busy. The hotel doesn't include breakfast but there are lots of nearby restaurants, including one in the hotel, but it seemed a bit pricey, however the McDonads across the way came to over $30 for the 4 of us, making the cost of the buffet not seem so bad after all.

    « No complaints here »

    The highlight of my stay here was the food options. There were two restaurants for breakfast so I could choose what style to eat in (buffet or not?). Dinner was fabulous and our waitress was extremely friendly. The food was above average for a hotel. Our rooms were clean, which I appreciated. The bathroom was giant with a giant tub. There was also a sink/mirror outside the bathroom, which was useful when my roommate was taking a shower. The decor is a little old, but cool nonetheless. It is completely Grand Canyon themed. They even went so far as to put in a waterfall. There are old black and white pictures on the walls (Einstein with some Native Americans!) all centered around the history of the Grand Canyon. The hotel has a game room, bowling alley, and a hot tub. So we weren't bored after a long day of hiking. Must say this, though: It is so big I got lost a couple of times. As long as you have a better sense of direction that I do, you should be fine. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel. It is everything you would want while visiting the area.

    You are mainly paying for location. The hotel is just beyond the park boundaries. The rooms are clean and fairly spacious. But the air conditioning never really caught up and there are no elevators for these one floor rooms. There is also currently some construction going on, but we did not hear any noise.

    « Not your normal best western »

    We stayed here for our day trip to Grand Canyon. Very nice motel! Had a bowling alley in the hotel which was a great change from the normal small pool all hotels have. Also a nice little sports bar pub across from bowling alley. Had a late supper while the kids bowled. Good pizza! Very close to Grand Canyon, not even a ten minute drive to the gate where you get the park sticker then another 5min to the shuttle buses at the visitor center. Beds were the best we had on our two week trip which included 7 hotels.

    « Does the job »

    My wife and I stayed here overnight when visiting the GrNd Canyon. 10 minuets out from the south rim with food and stores surrounding it, the Best Western did the job of giving us a place to sleep and being close to the canyon. It had a good buffet breakfast for ~$12/person, but no other major frills. Not a top notch hotel, but that was not our expectation coming anyways.

    « Making money on the Grand Canyon »

    original text: English A really big place, catering to Grand Canyon visitors, with more than 300 rooms. Credit cards are being charged at the moment of booking which makes for some good money in interest. My room was ok, generous in space. A bottle of water along with information material was provided at check-in. Parking space was not exactly plenty, a guidance system to the back of the hotel would help. Breakfast choice is ok, breakfast room was a bit tight with too many guests at the same time. Reception personnel is friendly and helpful. What is missing in a house of this size and location? a swimming pool!

    « Great Location »

    We stayed at this hotel for three days and had no major issues with any services. The hotel is actually about 3 miles or so from the entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park. The breakfast buffet is reasonably priced considering the location. The hotel has a small game room for kids to play and a six lane bowling alley. Across from this area is the pub. We only ordered a few appetizers which were good, so we cannot vouch for the meals. Staff was pleasant and helpful. We needed a new TV remote in the room and it was brought up promptly. They have a small business center where you can check emails or print out your itineraries, etc.. Overall, I recommend this hotel, especially for the location. I will stay here again should we visit the Grand Canyon a second time. Cheers and safe travels.

    My wife and I were visiting the Grand Canyon with our daughter, son-in-law, and two young grandsons. We had rooms close together and found it very easy to get to the National Park. In addition, there were many stores and eateries in Tusayan close to the hotel. The rooms were comfortable, breakfast buffet good, and the restaurant very good. Our grandsons were disappointed that the swimming pool was not in operation while we were there due to construction activity.

    In the words of a famous film quote " an excellent adventure". The Grand Canyon was the goal, very few available options for nearest accommodations, and this turned out to be part of the adventure. Very nice accommodations. Would have preferred more options for breakfast than $13 buffet or restaurant prices. Otherwise could not have asked for better PREMIER accommodations. Arcade center with bowling alley was a hit. Staff was very engaging and added to the experience. Kids loved the experience and dad enjoyed it probably more. NPS shuttle has a stop at the hotel . Highly recommend for a trip to the Grand Canyon.

    « Couldn't Wait To Leave »

    I don't understand how this hotel got a 4 star reviews on Tripadvisor. The only good thing I could say about this hotel is it that it's located about 6 miles from the Grand Canyon National Park. Everything in the room is extremely outdated and the carpet looks filthy. The chair is super old and has stains. I had to cover it with a bed sheet before I let my son sit on it. We asked to get our sheets replaced and they gave us wet sheets. I called them to get dry sheets and they came back with the wrong size. We paid over $500 for two nights and you're really just paying for the location. I would never stay at this hotel again even for free.

    « Where's the pool? »

    It would have been nice to know that when you are going to a hot place with your family that the pool is shut down. Other than that, the room was pretty nice and big. Big bathroom. I liked that the shuttle stop was right in front of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was mediocre.

    « Great Breakfast Customer Service »

    Usually, I see waitresses taking your order and walking away. The waitress that assisted my family and I that morning was very positive, humble. and eager to get to know us. It made breakfast more enjoyable. In regards to the room, it was beautifully clean! The beds were super comfty and I swear I slept like a baby. The location is perfect too because after being in a 10 hour drive and walking at the Grand Canyon, we were exhausted and Best Western Premier Grand Canyon was the perfect fit.

    « Everything we needed! Truly I would never want to stay anywhere else when visiting the Grand Canyon! »

    My young daughter and I stayed here during a difficult time following my mother's death.We just had to get out of town! The check in process was fun because we experienced people from all over speaking languages we had never heard. The front desk had four clerks all speaking in the language of those guests. It was so comforting and friendly. We knew after our first night that we wanted to stay one more. The front desk were so friendly and helpful. They let us keep our room, and even discounted it for us since we would be there a total of 4 nights. Our room was in the main building, and even though the hotel is expanding, and construction was right outside our window, it was very quiet and comfortable.The room was clean, and had a safe, clothes line, microwave, and fridge amongst other creature comforts including a big tub for soaking tired bones after a day in the Canyon. The lunch buffet was mediocre, but the Squire Burgers with steak fries from the Squire Pub down stairs is superb! There is an arcade and bowling alley downstairs too, and folks from all over the world were having a great time there. The pool is being renovated, and that was disappointing. The only other caution I would have is, do not park your vehicle anywhere near the sprinkler system. My black car was covered in water spots that I have not been able to get rid of even more than a week later! Do to the great Purple Route Shuttle service, I didn't drive my car for 4 days, and it sat and baked in reclaimed-water spots. Truly I would never want to stay anywhere else when visiting the Grand Canyon!

The customer service is excellent. The food is delicious. The guy who checked us in, Chris, is very nice and accommodating. And the restaurant manager/supervisor, Krish, is so kind to help us choose a gluten free food and made sure everyone in the dining gets undivided attention. The bellman is very helpful too. We don't regret staying at Best Western. We'll definitely recommend this to other friends. Thank You!!

    We stayed in the new part of the hotel and it was VERY nice. We typically stay in Marriotts when we travel, and this was actually nicer than most of the Marriotts we've visited (at least in terms of standard rooms). It even had that new-hotel smell! The room was very large, had a nice sink with in-room refrigerator outside of the restroom and a modern look. The bathroom was huge and was very clean. They also had a family fun center, which was packed full of people playing pool, video games and even bowling, as well as a very large on-site bar. It was impressive! Our only complaints were that, despite our pretty high room rate, breakfast was not included, and the shower did not get hot enough to account for the heat loss that came from the large shower "door" opening. Other than that, we would highly recommend staying here.

    This Best Western is located 6 miles from the Grand Canyon National Park. The hotel has something for everyone, choice of restaurants, games room with pool etc . Friendly bar with Tv's with sport so I could keep up to date with the football and tennis. Sadly the pool was closed and there is building work in that area. So our view from our room was a building site. The rooms are small but well equipped with a table chairs and plenty of toiletries. Tea and coffee facilities and air con, this is right next to the bed and noisy, so sleeping is hard. It's like being on an aircraft. But I would stay here again for the location and friendly staff.

The rooms was large and the beds were really nice. Didn't have any food at the restaurant but it looked nice. we had a good night sleep and were back in the park early in the morning.

    « Better than it had any right to be »

    While she was planning our trip, my mom chose this hotel because "It's not going to be great but it's close to the Canyon and it'll have rooms available." After a long day of driving we stumbled to our room and found that it was a hidden gem. The beds were huge and comfortable, the bathroom was bigger than our bathroom at home, and it came with two (!) tables to work at and a wide screen tv. The room was so clean I would have eaten off the bathroom floor. I don't know who they have cleaning but they sure don't phone it in. In the morning we had breakfast at the hotel. While a little pricy ($12 per person) the food was fantastic and I have to say it was worth the money. I nearly licked my plate. We would have happily settled for an okay room and a shower. We got a fantastic room and a huge bath/shower combo, plus a great meal. And all only a short drive away from the Canyon. Well played, Best Western. 10/10.

    Booked this through trip advisor as they were cheapest for this hotel in June. Expensive for what it is but then its not far from GC and the hotels inside the park were all booked. Rooms are in blocks and were pretty standard Best Western style but comfortable with good facilities. Short walk to on site restaurant which was better tha other Best Westerns and seemd more upmarket. Steak was very good and it is a very pleasant resturant. Check out/in was quick and easy.

    We stayed here for one night and made the BIG mistake of having dinner at their restaurant (even though the reviews on Yelp made it clear the restaurant was a dump). From the start of our stay, it was clear that this is a 2star place at best. Front desk guy was friendly but not very professional, room was not clean at all and had a very outdated bathroom (even though we were in the supposed remodeled part of the hotel) but by far the worst part of our stay was the restaurant. Really poor food, awful service and over priced. Avoid!

    The room had issues with the bathroom and it took a couple visits to get the job done on our first evening at the hotel. The hotel staff was very attentive and really provided excellent services. The Bathroom issue was resolved, someone had flushed a bar of soap. Once we had that completed then the real making our selves at home finally happened. The location is excellent being so close to the entrance to the Grand Canyon gate. Would still consider staying again on another visit to the Grand Canyon.

    We booked this well in advance of our trip to the Grand Canyon knowing that it is close to the south rim entrance and that it would be crowded during the summer season. We were not disappointed. The hotel was beautiful. It has a bowling alley and arcade in-house where we had pizza and bowled one night for a break from being tourists. Super fun! It has a nice gift shop, a laundry where we cleaned up after our long road trip, and were able to go in and out of the park in less than 10 minutes drive.

    We stayed here one night while doing a Midwest road trip. Front desk staff nice. The hotel is multiple buildings, we had an upper floor room. Looks like they did renovations, but basically changed carpet and counter tops? The room is smaller and has a vanity outside the bathroom which just seems to be in the way. We had a view of construction going on outside our window which I was not made aware that the facility had construction going on. We had a late night and tried to sleep in a bit, but housekeeping knocked on our door at 8:45 am.. I could see if it was 10am, but not 8:45.. Upon arrival, we ate dinner in the pub. Great service with ok food. In the morning we had breakfast in the main level dining room which was ridiculously over priced. $65 for 4 people, but they got you because not a lot of choices around. Even McDonald's prices are higher than usual.. I would not recommend this property to my friends.

    « Brilliant hotel close to the southern gate of Grand Canyon NP »

    We were delighted to find that the hotel was very close to the southern gate of the Grand Canyon NP. When we arrived at reception we were told that our room was in one of the wings and that there was no hot water. We explained that I had a serious medical condition which necessitated in my needing IVs every other day and that it was essential that I had hot water. Even though the hotel was full, they reallocated us a room in the main building and there was plenty hot water. The hotel is modern, spacious and very clean. The staff are friendly, helpful and professional. Our room, as was our Kingsize bed, was very comfortable. One evening we ate in the bar and another evening we ate in the more formal restaurant which served wonderful food. Our server was a very pleasant young Native American who was very attentive, but not intrusive. He admitted that as he was only 20 he had not ever had tasted wine and was therefore not in a position to give us a personal recommendation! We recommend this hotel to any discerning traveller. A fabulous place to stay. We felt very rested when we moved on!! We were also delighted to find they had a laundry for the use of guests. (Coin operated).

    Everything was fine about this hotel. Room and hotel were pleasant. Breakfast buffet was good and inexpensive. The Grand Canyon bus stops in front of the hotel every 20 minutes and takes you to the canyon visitor center. From the hotel you can walk to the other businesses in Tusayan. If I visit the Grand Canyon again I would like to stay in this hotel.

    We arrived after a long flight and then drive from Phoenix by Elizabeth with a big smile and hello for us. As Rewards members she informed us that we had been upgraded and that everything was ready for us, including the key cards and portfolio already pre-named for us. The room was a king studio and had a large bathroom areas as well. WiFi worked well; bed was comfortable with AC working properly as well. Downside was there was no pool at the hotel - because with the heat it would have been appreciated. The hotel offers multiple restaurants as well as a games area that includes a bowling alley and pool tables (all additional $$) We had breakfast in the buffet area and it featured the usual hotel fare as well as an omelet station. Price was not included but we treated it as a brunch and did not need lunch that day - having an early dinner instead. The price is high, however we did find that prices were high throughout the Grand Canyon area.

    Very clean, well-maintained hotel. No pool while undergoing renovation. Very friendly and helpful staff, especially Art in the hotel bar. Felt hotel and its restaurants were overpriced, but everything that close to the Grand Canyon is.

    « Where the locals go. »

    This is a great spot for the family. They have very nice rooms, well maintained and great staff. On the main floor entrance is the front desk, nice dining facility, and a full bar. When you go down one level there is a 6 lane bowling alley, an arcade and the Squire Pub, a favorite of the locals and me too.

    « If you cannot get into a Grand canyon lodge... »

    Tusayan is a small town with a selection of middle of the road hotels. This Best Western is probably the best of the bunch. Most rooms are in a variety of multi-room single storey buildings with car spaces close by. The rooms are spacious if a little dark with minibars, wifi and comfortable beds. The bathrooms are small with the shower over the bath which doesn't have a non-slip surface. Inside the hotel there are a variety of restaurants of which the Coronado is by far the best although the 'best' is not particularly good. The buffet breakfast on the 1st floor is not as good as the ground floor 'menu' breakfast. The same ground floor restaurant offers dinner in the evening but my advice would be to steer clear of it - for example, half a dry chicken with heavy cornbread is unlikely to tickle the typical European palate. There is no swimming pool but there are other facilities such as bowling and a games room. This is not an economy hotel and for its room price is not particularly good value for money but if you cannot get into one of the six Grand Canyon lodges it is probably the next best thing.

    « Friendly,warm hospitality- extraordinary »

    Friendliest hotel I have stayed at for a long time. Staff was happy to see us. Wow, I love that attitude. Breakfast buffet is great: individual egg omelets, plenty of variety and of course great service. Free Shuttle to park with Park Pass, stops right in front of hotel. 15 minutes to the Grand Canyon visitor's center. Food on the lower level Bar and Grill was adequate and service was slow and for one night it was downright nonexistent. Really a wonderful place to stay. We hiked everyday. I want to go back.

    « Somewhat Disappointed »

    On one of the websites we used to compare motels, it stated that breakfast was included (it was not) and that there was a pool (there was no pool available as they were constructing one). The room was very nice and roomy, but lacked cleanliness. The exercise room was very dated. The location was great, but overall we were slightly disappointed.

    Room was not ready, pool was not open due to renovations which they did not tell me when I booked hotel. I at breakfast in the restaurant, waitress did not come back to check on us and I had to ask twice for the bill. They don't seem to know what they are doing!!!

    Ok hotell with ok standard but the customer focus are really bad, this is not Best western standard. I had prepaid my room and still I am locked out because they could not access my creditcard, but it works fine in the shop in the lobby. It took several visit to the reception to solve it, really strange to lock customer out that had prepaid, it can not be legal.

    Enjoyed this hotel very much. Nice location near the Grand Canyon. The rooms and bathrooms were huge. Extra vanity area with sink was nice.

    Easy access to the canyon just a few miles away, the hotel was under construction so will have a pool soon, kids loved the bowling alleys and game room and the rooms were good, clean, and the full breakfast was good and included. We got a family of five in one room pretty comfortably with a rollaway for an extra $25.

    Not friendly customer service, two non smoking room was booked, but actually when we arrived one of our rooms was a smoking room with window opened to refresh the air probably for whole day, during a winter time!

    « Disappointing customer service »

    Booked into the Squire for two nights as part of our 9-day tour of Grand Canyon and National Parks. Room was perfectly acceptable on arrival - clean with everything we needed. However as we settled down for an early night after a long day travelling, we found the room itself in the main hotel complex far from ideal. A creaking/vibration noise was evident in the wall between the bed and bathroom. It was continuous and we were not able to settle down to sleep. Reception were not at all helpful. Two maintenance men were called in who accused us of leaving the fan on, which of course we hadn't. The air conditioning too was switched off. Eventually we insisted on being moved to another room as we were not prepared to either spend the night in the room or put up with maintenance men there when all we wanted to do was sleep. Neither the offer to move us or indeed an apology for any inconvenience was forthcoming. We were moved to a part of the complex furthest away from main building but the disruption meant our night's sleep was both disturbed and shorter than planned. We complained at the desk the following morning and asked for the duty manager. Not on duty until later so returned to speak to him later that morning. He did "apologise" on behalf of his night staff but we did not hear anymore. We were far from impressed by the treatment we received at this hotel especially being made to feel we were a problem. This was part of a 26-day trip to Canada/US and can thankfully say this was the only time we were anywhere near dis-satisfied with service we received. As a couple who have travelled a fair bit and never needed to complain before, needless to say we would not recommend this hotel or stay there ourselves again!

    « Great service and perfect location for Grand Canyon »

    Due to our timing, we were only able to stay at the hotel for 8 hours. But the check in person was incredibly helpful telling us how to get to the Grand Canyon, when to go and what to do when we got there. He helped with the room location and described the restaurants--as they had three restaurants. When we got up at 4 am to go to see the sunrise, it was very easy due to the info provided. The restaurant staff and housekeeping were prompt and also supported our needs. The bed and TV were nice. I also appreciated the free wifi but the bathroom and room seemed plain for the price.

    « Great location but pricey for what you get »

    The hotel is in a great location, but three nights for $900 is very high considering it's a basic hotel. It's clean and comfortable - comparable to a Courtyard that would run about $125/night in an average city. Breakfast buffet was $50+ for two children and two adults and has pretty much what you would see on a Fairfield Inn breakfast bar that is free at those locations. Workout room is an exercise bike, two treadmills and a universal weight machine.

    « Too many junky things kept breaking »

    The room suffered from a parade of device and fixture failures. The Thermostat was a cheap one and we could not read the faded LED display. The tub water fixture fell apart in my son's hands and we spent a hour standing around while the maintenance staff struggled and struggled to rebuild it. The wall mounted light fixture between the two beds did not work because the on-off switch was broken. The parts that failed were all low cost and junky. Not what I expect for a $250 per night room anywhere.

    Just great, a very happy stay. Good luck getting reservation. Booking months in advance we had to book through a tour group operator in England. With luck they were willing to let go of two rooms. Thought we had paid a premium but turns out our cost was 30 percent cheaper than the posted rate on our arrival. Very, very helpful staff. New aquatic center was under construction. Be sure to see the National Geographic movie showing in town, great perspective.

    « Limited selection at this location. »

    Overall OK but the price is way more than it is worth. For $250 a night I had three rooms each at that price. The park was great but lodging was tolerable. The prices for the breakfast buffet was $13.00. We bowled two games with 6 people and that was $120.00. Rooms smelled musty and air-conditioning was barely tolerable. Next time will book a year in advance and book inside the park.

    « New Buildings Great; Being Put By Elevator, AWFUL »

    We were put on the third floor of a brand new building at the Best Western Premier. The room was the most expensive hotel room we've ever purchased, and that includes Fairmont properties in Telluride and Hawaii. It was nicely outfitted, and like I said, brand new; new everything, interesting artwork both in the rooms and the hallways. No issue there. Our issue was with being put in the room next to the elevator. People, it's 2016. It's possible to design a building without having to have rooms right up on the elevator shaft. And this one is unbelievably loud. The room was designated for hearing impaired (with a buzzer outside that turned on lights to alert a hearing impaired guest). We, however, are not. Once my husband realized how loud it was when trying to go to sleep, he insisted on having the front desk move us to another room far away from the elevators.

    « Can't beat the location but hotel is just average »

    The best thing about this hotel is the location. We only stayed for a night to visit the Grand Canyon and it was convenient for that reason (especially with the shuttle that stops at the hotel). We've stayed at nicer Best Westerns and found this one to be average. The wifi didn't work for us the entire stay, it said our login information was wrong but the front desk advised it was correct. The only staff member that was helpful was an older gentlemen who walked around the lobby answering questions, otherwise no one seemed to want to be bothered. Breakfast is not included but we ate there (limited options in the town) and it was just average as well.

    « Expensive but good for the location »

    One of the more upscale hotels of the Best Western group. Room rates are pretty high although we found a deal for $100/night. The hotel's biggest plus is its location, just a 10 minute drive from the Grand Canyon's South Rim entrance. There are quite a few eateries nearby. The layout of the hotel itself is a little confusing because of the multiple blocks. There is sufficient parking but you may not find one outside or near your room/building and sometimes its a long walk from the parking to the room. The room we stayed in was quite modern. There's a hand wash and mirror outside the bathroom too, which is quite convenient. There was some really good coffee. The room also had a microwave and a fridge. The main building (the one that houses the lobby) is done up pretty well with a small waterfall. There is a gift/souvenir store too. For us, the only bummer was lack of complimentary breakfast, especially because room rents are high. Breakfast is $13 and the spread is the usual Best Western fare, although there is a live counter for eggs made your way. Also, the check out time is 11:00am but we had a pamphlet in our room which said 12:00pm. That was a little confusing.

    « Poor hotel, great location »

    This location did not meet my standards of what a Best Western should be. My room was dirty (large stains on the curtains, bathroom in need of repair), which was very disappointing. The location near the Grand Canyon is great, but the price you pay for a below average room was not enough to make that worth it for me. Very limited parking as well.

    « What a great surprise! »

    It started when we needed a place to crash for a night while visiting the Grand Canyon - boy was I pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. We were tired so we decided to stay in for the night and eat at one of the hotels 2 restaurants. We had great service and great food including the ribs and the 1/2 chicken. I highly recommend the Best Western Premier! Just minutes from the entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park.

    « Decent hotel near the Grand Canyon »

    The layout of this hotel is a little confusing, as it consists of six or so different buildings. We found the lobby but could not find any available parking spaces nearby. Once we parked the car and headed in the lobby we had no issues checking in. The front desk staff were nice, though it felt like they were rushing through people. We then moved the car (again, had to park far from the building) and found our room. It was in one of the older buildings and some aspects could definitely use an update (the bathroom had mould, grungy tiles, and weird lights), but it was generally a clean and decent room. It even had a microwave, which was a plus. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back, but maybe request a room in one of the newer buildings.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    The hotel did not have a pool, but it looked like they were in the process of installing one. The hotel had laundry facilities. It was clean and it was a short drive to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. It was a little pricey, but it is right outside the park.

    « Good value for the location with lots of amenities »

    Stayed here for two nights while visiting the Grand Canyon. Its about an 8 minute drive from the park gate, so very close. The hotel itself is huge, and fairly upscale for a Best Western. They have several restaurants, a pub-style bar, and a game room and bowling alley that would keep anyone in the family entertained since there is not a lot to do in the area in the evenings. We left too early and missed breakfast, so instead they gave us complementary breakfast bags which included drinks, granola bars, and a muffin I believe. Hotel was very clean, and though crowded, didn't feel noisy. Also, we found a deal and payed only $100 a night, which I thought was more than a fair price. The only negative thing I have to say is check-in. We unintentionally ended up there right at check-in time, which I think might be four and waited in line for about 20 minutes to check-in. I think this is because everyone was trying to check in before going back to the park for sunset. So, it might be worthwhile to check in later. They do try to keep people happy while they are waiting and offered bottles of water and cookies.

    This hotel is good for families with older kids-mine are 15 and 12 and they really liked the arcade and bowling alley. Be aware, however, that they are in the midst of major renovations, and that all the buildings are from different time periods-some being quite old. Only a couple of them are directly attached to the main lobby and restaurants. Also there is no pool available now-they are building a new one. It is relatively noisy also. Great proximity to the Canyon though, and has a couple good choices for dining. Two big pluses- the concierge is very helpful, and the rooms are quite spacious with big bathrooms( in our building-building 5-this building is also directly connected to the main lobby).

    « Comfortable stay just outside the Park »

    We discovered this hotel when deciding to flee from a poky and gloomy motel room at one of the Park lodges. The airy, spacious rooms were a real treat by comparison. There is a beautiful water feature which sets the tone. Unlike many Best Westerns breakfast is not complimentary; we found it acceptable but not exceptional though it was good value. There is a fine dining restaurant which we did not try this visit, and there is also a family style restaurant which we did, but did not think was up to Best Western Premier standard.

    We were so pleased with the BWP Squire Inn! The rooms are oversized and beautiful. We were in a new building that was a short walk from the restaurants and arcade. The bedding is comfortable and the room layout accommodated the extra roll away bed well. Even the roll away was new! The food quality is good and I think the prices are fair. We've paid way more for food and games at the beach! The Concierge, Lori, was very professional and helpful. We overslept but she snagged us a flight over the Canyon after lunch. Overall we were comfortable, felt safe and the service was so good, we couldn't NOT give good tips. (Bad grammar -I know)

    « Good location, recently upgraded rooms available at a price. »

    Stayed here for 3 nights in June 2016. Paid about £220 per night, without breakfast, for a deluxe room, in block 7000. This is one of the newest blocks, and the rooms are excellent, large, and clean. Fridge, microwave and coffee making. Bathroom has walk in shower. Breakfast is good selection, even with chef available to cook choice of eggs. Ample car parking. This is a good location, straight drive to Grand Canyon entrance, about 4 miles. Park entrance fee $30 for seven days. Buy in advance, and avoid queues at entrance - lane 1 is dedicated to prepaid tickets. Note there is some construction work going on between 9 and 5' but we didn't hear any noise from our room. Part of the work is on a swimming pool, so there is NO swimming pool available !

    « Nice Property, Close to Grand Canyon South Rim Entrance »

    We stayed here for just one night so that we could view the sunrise on the south rim of the Grand Canyon. It is only about a 10 minute drive to the canyon entrance. The property was very nice! We had a room with 2 queen beds in a section of the property that was new. Our room was in excellent condition and just beautiful! The bathroom was very spacious - lots of counter space, new modern fixtures, and very clean. The beds were super comfortable. We had dinner and drinks in the pub - food was fine, service was good. The breakfast buffet was just o.k., mediocre food, minimal options. All of the staff we encountered during our stay were pleasant and helpful. So in a nutshell: accommodations - excellent, service - excellent, location - excellent, food - average

    « Big room, good location, average service »

    We went on a road trip (june 2016) and booked all our hotels via Best Western: Inglewood (LA) -> Palm Springs -> Needles -> Grand Canyon -> Page -> Bryce Canyon -> Zion -> Las Vegas -> Mammoth Lakes -> Yosemite -> San Fransisco -> Santa Maria -> Inglewood. The check-in went a bit difficult because of the fact that both of our credit cards were denied (although they had been accepted in other BW-hotels the days before and after). We had to pay a cash deposit of 300$. We could reduce it to 200$ and because there was an ATM in the hotel, the problem was rapidly solved. We had a large room with a very comfortable bed and pillows, bathroom was rather basic (so far in every hotel, seems to be a trademark of BW). There was a good airconditioning system and refrigerator in the room. There is also a free possibility to make yourself a cup of coffee. Free wifi available, though with poor connection. No extra charge for parking space. The hotel is located at a 10 minutes drive from the visitor center of the Grand Canyon and the free shuttle bus stops right in front of the hotel. We didn't take breakfast at the hotel, but you can go to RP's Stage Stop next to the hotel (see other review).

    « Some good, some bad »

    The good; the decor, the comfort of the bed and the access to Grand Canyon Village.

It's too bad because with a few changes the place could be nearly all good.

    Spent 2 nights here exploring the south rim. The location is excellent & provided us with a good base. Our room was standard layout, very clean & presentable with good comfortable beds. We used the restaurant for the buffet breakfast which is good for value & choice. All the staff we encountered were great. Would recommend.

    « Ok but not great »

    The room we were allocated for our two night stay was in the 7000 block and was new and perfectly adequate for our needs. The hotel is undergoing further construction work with more rooms being constructed. It was a lengthy check-in process now because of the number of arrivals, so that will need to be addressed with more rooms. They will also need to look at the breakfast system which can be very crowded and is not in anyway special. The pastries and coffee are basic and the fried potatoes that we had with our omelettes were completely inedible. It was not good value even before I discovered that they had added 3.99 as an "agreed" service charge to my credit card bill on both days. At no point was this charge explained and I don't see how it could be claimed that I had agreed to it. The hotel is very convenient for the shuttle bus to the South Rim which stops outside, but based on our experience there may be better options in the town.

    « ok »

    We were disappointed with the fact that we literally only spent 12 hours at this hotel. When I initially booked it in January there was no mention of the pool being closed THE WEBSITE STATED NO AMENTIES WOULD BE EFFECTED BY THEIR REMODEL. I happened to notice the closure one month prior to our trip. I tried to switch hotels immediately and could only get another hotel for 2 out of the 3 nights we were in the Grand Canyon. When we checked in we were given a piece of paper with a map of the rooms on it that stated free grab and go breakfast from 5:30-6:00pm. When my husband went to get them he was told that stopped on 5/13/16. When false advertising. We bowled in the bowling alley on lane 1 which was warped. We did tell the gentleman who runs the arcade. I do not hold him responsible.The general manager needs to be accountable for these issues. I would not stay at this hotel again based on my experience. The only good part of our stay was the restaurant which was reasonable and our waitress Jairon. We came back to the hotel just for the food and her great service

    Room was ok. We were in the 3000 building and it is very dated. We had people next door to us that had a kid jumping from bed to bed,slamming doors and making the worst noise! Was not able to get any sleep everytime you started to fall asleep there would be more noise. The hotel was really close to the Grand Csnyon. If you book ask for 7000 building or 8000 which they are building right now .

    « Great Location Barebones accommodations »

    We stayed here for two nights while visiting the Grand Canyon. The location is incredibly convenient with a Shuttle stop right outside. Otherwise it's about a 15 minute ride to the park entrance. The rooms were pretty standard with the exception of the bathrooms that had these weird 70's style mirrors. Even though the hotel is big, it didn't feel crowded because there are multiple buildings. The layout is weird and you can't get to the main building where the lobby is without walking outside. They are doing construction so you had to walk back around a number of buildings to get to the road.

    « Great Visit to Grand Canyon »

    We went to the Squire bar on the 1st floor to have a burger. The bartender, a girl, told us to sit anywhere, then proceeded to ignore us. Others came in, sat at the bar, and were served by her. After 10 minutes, we left. No other service staff were in the bar. It was around 5:15 pm and other than the people at the bar, we were the only others in the room at a table. No wonder, the service was terrible and we went elsewhere to eat. The room door closers need adjustment. On our first and last mornings, at 5:00 am, people on our floor started to leave there rooms and let their doors close on their own. Some of the doors close so hard that the headboard in our room vibrated from the impact of the door closing in the door jam. This went on for 2 hours. We assume that it was tour people getting away early. Maybe, tour people can be put in the same wing. This is a Premier grade hotel, so door closing should not echo down the hallway. It is a great location and very quiet other than the door issue. The price is reasonable for the location, being so close to the Park.

    « An excellent base from which to explore the Canyon area »

    Clean, tidy and in an excellent location approx. 1 mile from entry to the National Park. Good food choices, the restaurant food was very good, albeit a little pricey (but in line with everything else we saw up the street). The bar had a basic food service but did not represent value for money - 2 cherry tomatoes on a pile of lettuce does not warrant a salad. There was a bowling lane and lots of family friendly activities, but we were so tired after exploring the Canyon that we did not utilise these.

    « Great hotel, but pricey »

    This hotel is really great and the room is very nice. The room was clean and spacious, the bed was comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We do feel that it's still a bit pricey for what you get, but it's around the same, if not less, than the other hotels in Tusayan. It's annoying that they don't offer free breakfast like most Best Western's, but I guess that's because this one is "Premier" and the others are just regular? They do have a restaurant, but the breakfast there is super expensive and we opted for the granola bars we brought with us instead. At least there's a mini-fridge in the room if you were staying for a while and wanted to have cereal or something else in your room.

    The location is good for walking to restaurants. Only about a ten minute ride to the Canyons. Very nice staff. Rooms were updated and very clean. We didn't have time to go but the hotel offered a bowling alley and arcade as well as a restaurant.

    « Motel 6 Quality at Premier Prices »

    The room was over priced. The Breakfast which I was told was included was not. The cost of the breakfast was very expensive and the selection on the continental breakfast was very limited, not worth the price. The service attendants were too few for the people. There was no help for the waffle making and the result was many waffles being under-cooked which is very unhealthy. The egg making stand had a very limited choice for ingredients and only one cook which made the wait about 10 minutes. This was the worst breakfast and most expensive I have ever had at a Best Western. The site in Managua Nicaragua was so much better and included in the price. Breakfast should be included or 1/3 of the price!

    « Grand Canyon Stay »

    This was a series of frustrations, some caused by ourselves, others by the hotel. We found the hotel hard to locate based on our gps directions; we had to drive around an industrial complex to find the hotel entrance. Parking was extremely limited. The reservation desk clerk was not particularly friendly and gave us the wrong room, causing us to have to return to correct the mistake. Our room (5111) was on the lower level of the hotel and the windows looked out into a dirt hole and construction equipment. The bright side: the location was convenient to the park, the room was clean, and every other hotel worker was pleasant and helpful.

    « Lovely Hotel, Great Range of Facilities/Amenities. A Delightful Stay. »

    Great location for exploring the Grand Canyon. This is a lovely spacious hotel with fantastic amenities including a games room, bowling alley, bar, 2 restaurants, fitness centre and hot tub. Very comfortable beds and modern facilities in the rooms, I would definitely stay here again. Staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly those on the front desk who went out of their way to assist us. Only minor criticism would be that the restaurant was a tad expensive (although the food was great) and the ventilation in the fitness centre was very poor.

    « Nice hotel »

    The hotel was very nice. It was clean and updated. The staff at check in was friendly and the process was quick and easy. Though the room appeared to be updated, there was obvious wear and tear on the rooms from all the traffic that passes though the hotel. The prices high as would be expected as such a tourist location. ONE POINT OF INTEREST: The bath tub has an very large/wide enclosure/shelf around it making getting in and out somewhat difficult (I'm 62, but in good condition). The tub surface is also a bit slippery. if you have any physical restrictions ask for a handicap accessible room.

    « Convenient to GC »

    Stayed here for two nights while visiting the Grand Canyon. We were in the main building and our room was very spacious. The hotel doesn't offer free buffet breakfast but the prices for the buffet were reasonable. The Grand Canyon shuttle bus stops in front so it's convenient for visiting the park.

    We had wanted to see the Grand Canyon area in person and really enjoyed the area taking in all of the sights. The shuttle bus that transported us around the Grand Canyon State Park were very helpful in getting around since we were new to the area.

    « Best Western best in the West »

    This hotel is beautiful! We had a king room, more like our private hacienda (1301) . Staff was so friendly and made us feel welcome. We went to the lower level bar with tv's and asked if they could find the hockey playoff game for us, and they turned it onto two big screens right away. The grounds are beautiful, the buffet breakfast was ok. The location is ideal, as the Tusayan shuttle stops right in front of the hotel. Tip: as you enter Tusayan, this hotel is on the left just past the turnabout. We missed the sign because it is obstructed from view by the shuttle shelter. GPS quit working before Tusayan. Had no WiFi connection until we left Grand Canyon. Could not connect to hotel WiFi.

    Enjoyed our stay. Art at the restaurant was very kind in helping us plan the next day. He explained the shuttle system & got us details. The food was very good as was the service. We would stay here again

    The assistants at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. Our room was comfortable and quiet. But. . . we were disappointed that there was no complimentary breakfast. So many other inns offer it, the Squire Inn should too.

    « I paid $200 for this? »

    Yes, I get it... You're at the entrance of a major National Park, you can charge almost anything and get away with it. From the outside, this place looks really nice and practically brand new. It's not until you get inside that you realize it's all a facade- literally! They put a new face on the buildings, even tried to update the interior decor, but you can never get rid of that old motel smell and feel. Also, what's with the No Pet policy? You're a Best Western, not Ritz Carlton. Make at least one building pet friendly, the place smells musty anyway. Finally, I'm sure that the vast majority of your guests arrived by car- you should account for that and fix your parking problem. It's not a pleasant experience to have to make three trips to my car parked 3 buildings away. On a positive note, the Wi-Fi was included and I was able to post this review.

    Pool was closed as new one being built, but bowling and Game Center made up for it. We stayed 2 nights and both nights are in the Pub which was convenient. Didn't care for the beds...husband and I slept poorly but our boys 14,11,9 had a great time. Clean, easy bus access right out front on Purple route to Grand Canyon.

    « Good choice for the GC »

    Great location, received upgrade on arrival. Had a very spacious room. It was well cleaned, nice tv, big bath, ... First necessary meal was breakfast. Expensive, not so fast on the service and almost 5 dollar for a large orange juice which was not large and came straight out of the carton box.

    « Would definitely stay here again »

    Clean, comfortable room with a nice layout. Large bathroom with an additional sink and makeup area outside of bathroom. Friendly, helpful staff. Fantastic location. Note: there is construction outside of the rooms in the 5000 building. Didn't bother us as we spent our day in the Grand Canyon and returned to the room after construction crews had gone for the day.

    « My own thoughts »

    There are several choices when staying in the Grand Canyon Village. Best Western Grand Canyon Premiere Hotel is the only one I have ever stayed at. I do not know of the other hotel's amenities but if they could beat the Best Western Premiere they would have to go a long long way. I tend to doubt it could be done.

    « Best West welcomes you »

    After hours of hiking through the national park with breathtaking views over the Grand Canyon, everybody is happy to have a place called home....even if it is just for one night. The Best Western hotel welcomes you with great smiles and pleasant surroundings, such as food and fun facilities and shops not far away. Unfortunatly the room we had, had some sort of an old ladies smell and we had to keep the window plus door open for several minutes to get rid of it, furthermore there was no dustbin in the bathroom which was rather unconvinient (if my female readers know what I mean) What I personally also found a bit unconvinient was the fact that the pool area was being rebuilt and therefore no outside sunbathing was possible. As I was hiking for several days the one thing I was really looking forward at this point of my journey was to relax at the pool, unfortunatly no information of this rather big construction was being published either....(not a big issue but a downside from.my part) Food service itself was good, service in the Pub a bit slow but overall not too bad, same goes for breakfast. Tho for a price of $200+ per night you could expect breakfast to be included...well its not...what to do.

    We were able to check in an hour early without any hassle whatsoever, which was much appreciated. This hotel is more of a complex than a hotel. We were located in the 2000 building, and it looked like they were expanding or doing some sort of construction. Whatever the case, we had no noise issues. There is an arcade, bowling alley, and a pub in the main building. The only downside was that the breakfast buffet was over $12 per person, which seemed a little high. We elected to eat granola bars instead. Overall, not a bad stay... We were able to get from the h
