Far from the noisy crowds, accommodations at this lodge are nestled in a shady ponderosa pine forest, with options ranging from rustic cabins to more modern motel-style rooms. The lodge, named for a Hopi kachina who is said to guard the canyon, is 0.25 mile from the rim. The cabins are the cheapest option but are available only spring through fall. Rooms in the South Section have the fewest frills and resemble what you'd find at a typical budget chain property (though with wall-mounted fans instead of air-conditioning). The North Section rooms cost nearly twice as much but are larger and have brighter, newer furnishings, air-conditioning, and plenty of extras—refrigerators, coffeemakers, and safes. Families appreciate the pizza pub, a casual spot with a big-screen TV. Kids under 16 stay free.
