          Well done Cameron - cancelled a reservation without fuss as we rejigged and excellent rooms & food. Shop substantially full of over-priced tat but that's what you expect

          You can get motels not too far away for less but the experience of staying at the Trading Post not to mention the views and the food make it well worth while.

          Enjoyable stay


          Our room was quite comfortable with nice decor; our only complaint was the (very!!) noisy air-conditioning unit that apparently was malfunctioning.

          We enjoyed browsing through the large, excellent gift shop, and were unexpectedly treated to a private tour of the adjoining "Gallery" of Native American art and artifacts. I'm not certain this is a regular offering - it could be that we were simply fortunate enough to arrive during a lull in business - but it certainly enhanced our visit and provided us with quite a bit of interesting information regarding Navajo and Hopi pottery, basketry, and rugs.

          Had dinner, breakfast and lunch at the restaurant; service was somewhat variable, but meals were fairly priced and consistently good.

          In the Middle of Nowhere


          Just back after an enjoyable trip to AZ. For Scots travelling in the South West, getting to grips with the absence of a bottle of wine or beer with dinner is not easy. However, in this oasis of shade and colour right beside the Little Colorado River Canyon on the way to Monument Valley, we still managed to enjoy the experience and our meals in the Navajo reservation restaurant.

          The Cameron Trading Post is split into two blocks of accommodation and our room in the Hopi building was large, well furnished and recently decorated with Navajo carved furniture and bright wall hangings. The room was of a high standard and immaculately clean. On one side it looked on to the Canyon and on the other, into a beautiful, shady garden. The trading post itself goes back a long way but is now modern and full of every imaginable type of Navajo art and craftwork as well as cabinets full of turquoise and silver jewellery. It fills as busloads of tourists arrive and one down side is that the room registration desk is also one of the pay points for the shop so it sometimes means waiting in line.

          The restaurant is large and the portions huge with Indian Fried Bread featuring heavily in a lot of the dishes. Everything we had was tasty and freshly made. We thought the Trading Post was well worth a visit and is also a good stopping point for heading west to the Grand Canyon.

          Great Jumping Off Spot


          We picked Cameron for our home base during a long weekend in northern Arizona. It's convenient - you can enter the Grand Canyon NP from the less crowded east side (don't miss the fabulous view at Desert View tower), plus it put us a little closer to the Four Corners area (about 3-1/2 hours away, a little more if you stop to see Chief Yellowhorse with his bright yellow Caddie or one of the other places to pick up handcrafted Navajo items). Was not a bad drive from Phoenix airport (even with a side stop in Sedona, which we nicknamed the "Gatlinburg of the West"). It was less than an hour from Flagstaff and gettin' our kicks on Route 66 too, so it was in the middle of everything we wanted to see and do. The balcony gave us a great view of the old bridge across the Little Colorado River, and the red rocks were beautiful at sunset. The garden courtyard was also a VERY nice space. Great Navajo tacos for dinner in the restaurant, and breakfast was yummy too; the pancakes were so fluffy! The rooms were spacious, very clean and look just like the pictures on all their advertising. Definitely a good value for the money. The nighttime security guy was a hoot!! :-)

          Nice place, lousy food


          The motel is very nice and comfortable. I agree with other reviewers. However there is only one place to eat here and the food is not very good. Other than that I would stay here again.

          You also have here the world's largest Indian souvenir shop. There are some nice things, but they are lost in the sea of glass cacti, imitation tommy hawks, key chains and coffee mugs.

          What a wonderful place


          What a wonderful location to rest a while between the Grand Canyon and Kayenta. With a room with a balcony overlooking the Little Colorado River and the Swaythling Bridge what more could you want. The room was lovely, clean and well equipped. The Trading Post itself has a large shop selling Native American arts and crafts, sometimes at really high prices, as well as food ands other souvenirs. The restaurant was wonderful with good quality food at reasonable prices with both Native American, Mexican and traditional American food on the menu.

          Why stay anywhere else when visiting the Grand Canyon?


          This is the best value going for a one or two day visit to the Canyon. Everything about this place is great. The best part is entering the East entrance to the park: there is no wait! We left via the South entrance and there was at least a half mile of cars waiting to get in!

          Great Place!


          We stayed one night at the Cameron Trading Post after making a mistake on the date of our stay at Thunderbird Lodge in the Grand Canyon - no regrets, however. Located just at the end of the East entrance road to the Grand Canyon, the staff was very hospitable and were attentive to our needs (we needed a rollaway). Very clean, cozy rooms. Wonderful gift shop (and I am not a shopper) and restaurant -with great food/large portions - get the Navajo tacos or Navajo fry-bread if you've never tried them. Friendly service and a wonderful historical trip into the past. Bartering still goes on here as Cameron is one of the four remaining original trading posts in the southwest. A great night to make up for our lost night in the Canyon.

          Very pleasant


          Stayed here en route to the South Rim. Very good value for money, the room was very nice, clean and fresh. Excellent gift shop with authentic Native American crafts, spent ages in there. The food in the restaurant was also excellent.

          Best Place for Navajo Tacos! Comfortable rooms.


          I stayed at the Cameron Trading Post on our way up to the North Rim of the Canyon in September, 2001. I am planning to go back in September, 2004 on the way to the South Rim. The staff was very pleasant, the rooms clean and comfortable. If you go to the restaurant, you have to try the Navajo Tacos. Absolutely delicious! I would take a drive from Phoenix just to have those tacos! I have a keen interest in anything Navajo and there were a lot of interesting Navajo displays of pottery, rugs, etc. Gift shop is very nice. Definitely a must see.

          Nice Stay


          Enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable room, with nice view. We had a very pleasant stay.

          We breakfasted at the inn again and then browsed in the gift shop as I was looking for a Navajo pot to go with my Lakota pot that I bought at Crazy Horse in 2012. We had a chat to the lovely girl in the gift shop who told us that the drive to Cameron is really picturesque.

It's an open 4WD vehicle that bumps along the sandy dry river bed out to the Canyon. The road ends and there is a small opening in the face of the rock. We walk along the flat sandy floor of a …
