TravelPod Member ReviewsKachina Lodge Grand Canyon National Park
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.

Although we were reluctant to leave the hustle, bustle of Las Vegas we were looking forward to milder temperatures. Hoover Dam is an incredible landmark to the men who designed engineered and brought the Dam to fruition. The history of Hoover Dam is incredible and hard to imagine that such an amazing feat was completed without the technology and …
This morning we woke up and quickly packed up and cleaned up. We would be on our way to Grand Canyon!
I didn't think I'd leave Vegas after 5 days with still so much left to do. There are so many more shops to visit, shows to see, places to view. I loved that the airport was right behind the strip, so that it looked like the planes were about to …
We woke up this morning to find that overnight, it had snowed quite heavily everywhere. The top of the canyon had a thick layer of snow, whilst lower down, it looked like a sprinkling of icing sugar covered the rock faces. We packed our bags in the car before having a walk around. It was so hazy, so we couldn't see as far as we could yesterday, but …
We woke up early this morning so we could catch the sunrise over the Grand Canyon. Luckily, our rooms overlooked the canyon, so we just sat up in bed and looked out the window.
We had breakfast at the neighbouring lodge where we had dinner the night before. It is basically a nicer cafeteria, but the food was quick and quite tasty.
... 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 ...
