Pros. I like that you could also enjoy the town around the hotel. Which was a small walk away.

8.8Very good
Andrew, Feb 2016

Pros. The price was great, the rooms were clean, and it is conveniently located near the train depot to get to the south rim of the Grand Canyon.

Cons. The staff could have been a little more warm and friendly.

7.1Good
james.tegeder, Aug 2015

Pros. Railroad was a great experience! It was a fun way to spend the day, meet people and see the Grand Canyon!

Cons. Housekeeper knocked at 8 and woke us up on a day we were not checking out and planned to sleep in. Had to call numerous times to get handicapped room guaranteed before arrival. Pool looked very dated and unappealing, even to my 8 year old. The buffet at the cafe was way overpriced and travelling with a friend in a walker-we had no other options. No room service. Room not cleaned at all on second day.
