We were up early to say our goodbyes to our Seattle friends. After a big breakfast we packed our bags. With a lump in my throat we hugged goodbye to all our companions and hosts at the Flying E. Before heading North bound for the Grand Canyon and our next adventure.

We stopped in Prescott to see where Back to the Future was filmed and get …

2nd day - The Grand Canyon

A travel blog entry by edwardsfamtrips on Mar 23, 2014

This morning we decided to try to get up at 7 am which ended up getting us out the door around 7:45 to go get breakfast which ended up not so great for our kids. Mr ate a bit of some french toast without syrup or butter but not much else. Missy just ate some cereal. Hopefully tomorrow morning will be better. After breakfast we got our things …

1st day - Flight to Vegas then to the Grand Canyon

A travel blog entry by edwardsfamtrips on Mar 22, 2014

This morning Jon & I woke up at 4:15 am so I could take a shower & we could finish gathering last minute items before my parents arrived at 5 am to take us to the airport. We ended up leaving the house around 5:25 am with two sleepy but excited children still in their pjs. They were both looking forward to riding on the airplane to Las …

Gorgeous Grand Canyon

Our last stop of the three National Parks.

The Grand Canyon was what we expected and a little bit more. The size is the most surprising thing...it is massive!! The other great feature is the Colorado River and the story that it has in relation to how the Canyon was created.

We did the Bright Angel Trail as well as the majority of …

Day 12: Navajo Land (Indian land)

We were surprised that the car was still there when we woke up this morning as the area seemed dodgy. Our first stop was the Four Corners Monument - the only spot where 4 states meet. We took lots of photos and continued on. It was such a long drive today but we did manage to sneak a bit of Monument Valley in and visit a little museum. We observed …

    The decor here was very up to date with granite countertop, ionic hairdryer and a keurig coffee maker in the room. The room was very clean and spacious. It has a resort feel to it without the resort price. There is an onsite 6 lane bowling alley, sports bar, arcade with pool tables and air hockey. There are also a couple other restaurants for dining options although we didn't use those. Upstairs they offer a free hot breakfast which was nice. There is also an onsite fitness center and indoor hot tub. The hotel is approx 7 miles to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and just outside the entrance to the park. Overall for the location and amenities this is an excellent value.

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PREMIER Grand Canyon Squire Inn Tusayan

    Average but Acceptable

    from

    My three friends and I stayed at two rooms at the Best Western for two nights. The lobby is clean, nice, and this is only one of two three-star hotels in the area. Although I thought it was generally OK, my friends said that they would choose another hotel with the next trip. The biggest complaint was that at least one bed in BOTH rooms were unclean (hair, scuff marks). It didn't appear that the sheets had been changed. We called and the night staff immediately changed the sheets. After reading the other reviews on this site, it seems that others have had the same problems with unclean rooms. At least the manager was very helpful and personable. The Coronado room restaurant had acceptable food, but a bit pricey. We liked the continental breakfast included in the price, which was very convenient for starting out the day and a good spread for free. If you decide to stay here, ask them to put you in a room that's connected to the main lobby/building.

    Close to Canyon, but otherwise just OK

    from

    Would probably be a good choice for people with children; the bowling alley might keep them entertained in the evenings. Otherwise it's pretty much standard motel fare. Other places in Tusayan would serve the same purpose if you're looking for a place close to the Canyon.

    Hotel was super!! Best place to stay on South Rim

    from

    I have NO idea what some of the other reviewers were talking about with their complaints. We stayed there July 14-17, 2003, and were totally pleased!! This hotel was so far superior to anything inside the park. We could not have been happier. Staying inside the park would have sucked compared to the Squire Inn!!The kids loved the place. We bowled 2 different nights. (and ALL lanes were open all the time). The pool was very pretty, inviting and felt great. We had internet discounts rates and got the complimentary continental breakfast no problem. The oversized room was great with a huge marble bathroom and massive tub. (NO mold in bathroom as one review reported.)The hotel was one mile from park entrance. The woods backed up to rear parking lot where we had a close encounter with a herd of elk one morning. A tremendous place to stay! I would highly recommend it to anyone. Again, if anyone was complaining about this place, they surely are one of those "the glass is half empty" people.

    Perfectly ok

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the BW Squire Inn for two nights on 29th and 30th June 2003. Contrary to other reviews we found the hotel staff very friendly and helpful. The room we were allocated was spacious, clean and perfectly ok. The hotel facilities were excellent. The location for Grand Canyon visits was very good. If you have already booked or you are planning to book soon don't have any fears that you are making a mistake !!

    Recommendations while you are there are: See the Grand Canyon at sunset and sunrise Take a flight over the Grand Canyon Visit Sedona for the day (about a 2hr leasurely drive) and take a Pink Jeep Tour Eat at the Yippee-ei-oh steakhouse at least once

    If you plan to drive from Las Vegas allow at least 5hrs - it is a long way :)

    Good luck.

    Not the Best Western

    from

    3 nights = $392. Booked 3 months ahead, PRE-PAID. When I verified reservation, they had 1 night (not 3) on the books, but said they'd fix it. Called back 2 weeks later it wasnt changed. I called 4x before they fixed it! Beware if your reservation is a discount/special rate. It does NOT include their "FREE continental breakfast" advertised on their website. I felt treated like a 2nd class citizen during my stay. The service was impersonal and condescending. Rooms were dirty (used soap and trash in shower when we entered room). Hotel seemed "overused" and no elevator to 2nd floor, which was problematic for my companion. Hotel not recommended.

    I would rather be camping....

    from

    If there was a choice of sleeping in a tent and in this hotel, give me the tent and a sleeping bag. The sheets made me itch, the bathroom floor had ----- hairs. Even after the maid cleaned the room the hairs were still there day two. We stayed two nights. The only good thing about this hotel is that it amused my children. The bowling/game room. We were in a room that we were told we get no continental breakfast because of our internet rate. We were never told of this prior to arrival. This hotel needs better accomodations; a larger or another hot tub and a bigger pool. There are way too many people for this little bit of facilities. We used the hot tub one time because of teenagers who were in the room with the lights off, both nights we stayed. There must be two room types, because people in these reviews are claiming they had a clean room. They must be the ones who did not get the "special internet rate". Beware!!!

    Clean comfortable accommodation

    from

    Good clean accommodation. Would recommend it to anyone. Nothing fancy but nothing to complain about.

    Great place for the rate and location!

    from

    Obviously, for $69/night (offseason), this place isn't the Ritz. However, for what it is, it's great! I stayed in the middle of January with two friends. The place was clean and the staff VERY nice and helpful. There are a few added fun features like a bowling alley, arcade, and nice lounge with roaring fire. And, best of all, it is located about 1 mile from the Grand Canyon entrance. Staying inside the park is quaint, but if you want something cheaper, I definitely recommend this place!

    COuld have been better

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel in February, 2003 for two nights. It is in a good location next to all the other hotels and restaurants in tusayan only a few miles from the Park entrance. Our room was in a separate building away from the main block. The room was adequate but not huge(no lift). We ate in the Coronado room even though we were very casually dressed. We felt that the menu was good and compared to english prices the bill was very reasonable. We have three children and the younger 2 unusually went for the kids menu which was good with ample portions , this helped defray the cost of the duck eaten by the 14 year old.We had the buffet breakfast which we did not have included and that was good. The much acclaimed games room was a bit of a disapointment as many games were out of order and the music was too loud. The overall impression was that when we return we will try one of the other hotels.

    Average hotel, do not eat at steakhouse!

    from

    The Squire Inn is a clean, comfortable, average hotel and we were pleased with our room. The rooms are spacious and the beds are exceptionally comfortable. Warning: Do NOT eat at their "fine dining" establishment. It was by far the worst dining experience we've ever had. We both ordered steaks - I got the prime rib, my husband ordered the rib eye. I cannot even describe the poor quality of meat, plus it was so overcooked it was like shoe leather. We graciously sent them back and ordered something else. My husband ordered the chicken and I ordered the fish. The chicken was cooked perfectly (thank God), but the fish was like cardboard. I did not complain again and my husband shared his chicken with me. I should also mention the baked potatoes were so cold the butter would not melt and we had to ask them to nuke them in the microwave. To top it off, the waitress said the chicken was same price as the rib eye and did not adjust the bill. We had to show her a menu to prove there was a $6 difference. Overall, it was the worst $70 (with wine) dinner we've ever had. Eat elsewhere, or pack your own dinner into the hotel. Better yet, stay at the El Tovar inside the Grand Canyon park, it looked very nice. We had a delicious lunch there the next day.
