Top 5 Cheap Grand Canyon Hotels


Plenty of well priced Grand Canyon hotels and motels can be found in the towns scattered throughout Northern Arizona, allowing guests to pick and choose exactly what suits them best. When looking for inexpensive lodging, keep in mind that national hotel and motel chains are often a popular choice. However, if you prefer to eschew the typical franchise in favour of sleeping in a wigwam overlooking the north rim or in a traditional cabin, plenty of places offer independent lodging.
