Kachina Lodge has an amazing location; located right near the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. The views of the Canyon (on a fine day) can be seen from the windows from some of the rooms. We selected 'partial view' which gave us a more than sufficient view of the Canyon for the beautiful sunrise and sunset.
The only criticisms of the Kachina Lodge would be that the key to enter the rooms are quite testy, so you have to be patient, and the internet is extremely slow if it does work. The parking directly infront of the Kachina Lodge is hard to come by, so be prepared to park either on the street, or in front of another lodge. However, if you have to park far away, you can always walk along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, so you can get a nice view while heading home.
The Kachina Lodge is located near to the Maswick Lodge which is perfect to eat at, however, the lodges are difficult to locate in the dark.
Finally, the Kachina lodge is a great place to play the "Kachina" game. The lodge and location, provides a spectacular location for both novice kachinas and advanced kachinas. Please remember when playing the game, play by the rules as only the players are the referres. Should someone hold up the finger cross on the forehead, the game should cease, and handshakes shared by all. I would definitely recommend this lodge for all players of the game.
All in all, the location makes everything worth it.

We departed the hotel at 8am with a full bus of 40 - almost half are Aussies! An early road- side stop to admire the cacti prevalent in the Salt River Valley in which sits the city of Phoenix.

... it was 2-3 in the morning but in reality it was just so dark you almost get lost in time. So we went to sleep…and what I mean by that is everyone else slept pretty well except for Jessie and I. If you remember we forgot one of my sleeping bags in Austin so Jessie and I were splitting a sleeping bag and blanket and although I tried to let her have the entire sleeping bag neither of us could get warm enough and by 4 in the morning we had to move to the car ...
