Any Top Tips?

The Hualapai Tribe collects fees to enter any part of the reservation as certain parts of the reservation are restricted to the general public. All fees are subject to change at any time..

Doing our bit

Mr. Jin approached the Hualapai Tribe with an idea to build the Grand Canyon Skywalk on tribal land. He said he would build it at his own expense and turn it over to the Tribe. The Tribe agreed. The Skywalk has exponentially increased tourism to Grand Canyon West by creating hundreds of jobs and attracting more than 2 million visitors. Jin signed over ownership of the Skywalk and visitor’s center to the Hualapai people under a contract that allows him to recoup his $30 million investment by handling day-to-day operations of the Skywalk for 25 years..

    Loved the pool! Loved the traditional Native American dancers in the lobby! Loved the restaurant (post Grand Canyon expedition)! Did not love the train, whose tracks (I swore) passed right through the lobby....BUT we were all so tired from our hiking expedition, that everyone slept through it anyway.

    Good value, nice people, awesome decor!!!!!

    Nice rooms, but the employees were very rude and unfriendly. We walked in to the restaurant, they looked at us and it took 10 minutes till someone cared about us, and gave us a table. Forgot the soup, but charged it on the bill.

    We visited the Grand Canyon West Rim and Skywalk last Monday on Labor Day, Sept 01, 2008. We were group of seven people. All unanimously concluded that it is expensive and not worth to see after passing through lots of pain and driving.
    The cost is approximately $60 /pp (29.95 for sky walk and 29 for compulsory bus ride) plus taxes and car parking fee of $ 20. There is no good facility for parking cars in spite of charging parking fee. Cars are not allowed to Skywalk or other point. You are forced to buy bus ticket and ride. Since you are not allowed...Read More

    Beware of staying here! My wife and I spent a night here last summer and our rental car was vandalized overnight while parked outside the hotel. When we informed the hotel staff, the front desk host did not even act surprised. Apparently this must be a common occurrence here at the Hualapai Lodge. Room was overpriced but the vandalized car made our visit an unpleasant experience. We would definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone.

    some find this pricey. maybe so, but we purchased the package with the boat ride (white water). yes, expensive, but fair compaired to the number of folks and the time back and forth (3 hours to get back). the hotel itself was surprisingly good for the location (remote) and the food also good for what it was.

There is no good facility for parking cars in spite of charging parking fee. Cars are not allowed to Skywalk or other point. You are forced to buy bus ticket and ride. Since you are not allowed to take camera, you will have to shelve out another $30 for your family photo.
The drive to the Hualapai reservation is pretty rough and tough. 14 of the last 21 miles are on unpaved, dirt, un-graded road. I saw a couple had a flat tire. There is no mobile connectivity. There is no support system on that long 14 miles stretch. An SUV is better; but make sure it’s a rental. I would never drive my own car on this road. Rock chip can harm your windshields. My friend got 3-4 scratches. Tourist bus/ truck / dumper run fast on this dirt road and their tire throw rock chip on your car.
If you are not suffering back pain, you will have it by the time you reach the destination, by driving on this road. One can have asthma also because of dirt.
The views are spectacular, but what not worth of your money and suffering of pains to reach there. I would better stay another day at south rim.
