    Front desk staff were all friendly, great customer service, and helpful. We went during Covid Memorial Weekend, the atrium bar was not open. We did not go to the Wagon wheel restaurant and the gift shop appeared to be closed. Breakfast service and food were disappointing. My kids asked why we had to pay as most places offer free breakfast, with more options and better food. I thought they had a good point. My vegan daughter ate a dry plain bagel. I don't suppose Arizona is known for Vegan options. Outdoor pool and spa were dirty, run down and cold. Chairs around the pool, looked to be about 30 years old and not safe to sit on. Indoor spa was lovely. Not impressed with pool towels. However, for the proximity to the Grand Canyon, 1 mile and price of the rooms, it was well worth it.

    McDonald’s is $35-40 for two but better food

    DO NOT ORDER THEIR FOOD, is it bad. No.. is it worth it. HELL NO. But the outdoor pool, indoor hot tub and main building environment is nice.

    No cleaning

    I was surprised with COVID -19 conditions they were not cleaning more. Didn’t see anyone wiping down doors or rails or anything. When I got to my room no toilet paper.. called to get some The doors to get into the hallway were not working called again... the. I tried to take a shower ..: no hot water.... I called again and Cedric was very annoyed by me.. asking for things.. I asked for the manager and spoke to Cris.. he was very nice... got everything fixed and said he would give me free breakfast the next day... when I went up.. no one new anything about the free breakfast. We did not have anyone come clean our room for the three nights we were there.. they said they were not cleaning rooms because of COVID but I did see people cleanings others rooms.. no sure about this one.
