West Rim Hotels

The up-and-coming West Rim of the Grand Canyon, aka Grand Canyon West and recently made popular by the Grand Canyon Skywalk, offers an alternate view of the Grand Canyon from Hualapai Indian reservation land outside the National Park's boundaries. However, while there are some accommodations on and just outside the West Rim - namely, Hualapai Ranch & Cabins (on site, 2 miles from the Grand Canyon West entrance) and the Grand Canyon Ranch Resort in Meadview (14 miles from Grand Canyon West entrance) - lodging is in short supply in this extremely remote part of the state; therefore, many visitors wisely book overnight lodging in nearby Kingman, Laughlin, Las Vegas and Lake Havasu as an alternative to have access to greater hotel, dining and activity choices. Similarly, visitors who are looking for the Hualapai Lodge, a popular choice for those embarking on an early morning departure of a 1-day river rafting trip, Jeep tour to the bottom of Grand Canyon, or hike to Havasupai, should understand that while the Lodge is considered a West Rim hotel, it is located 3 hours (116 miles) from Grand Canyon West in Peach Springs.

With only two lodging options adjacent to Grand Canyon West, many smart visitors opt to stay in Kingman, just 73 miles from the entrance to Grand Canyon West. Kingman is the ingress to northwestern Arizona, the central resting stop for travelers journeying east-west along Interstate 40. Kingman also sits at the junction of I-40 with I-93 to Las Vegas, ensuring its role as the area's portal to: Grand Canyon West; boating and fishing on Lakes Mead, Mohave and Havasu; London Bridge; Hoover Dam; Laughlin and of course, Las Vegas. For an overnight stay in Kingman, look for familiar quality hotel chains and budget-friendly motels. Families traveling by car will appreciate the hotels with swimming pools and pet-friendly policies, while motorcycle riders and adventuring adults will love hotels offering free breakfast, kitchen amenities and proximity to major thoroughfares.

Lake Havasu City is located on "Arizona's West Coast," tracing the Colorado River's mighty path which forms the state line between Arizona, Nevada and California. Its proximity to the water makes Lake Havasu City a playground for active visitors who like to go boating, jet skiing, hot air ballooning or ATV riding. The city's centerpiece is the London Bridge, which was brought to and reassembled over a canal off Lake Havasu in the early 1970s, and today serves as the city's foremost attraction. Hotels in Lake Havasu City are largely categorized as limited service or motel-style accommodations, but there are a handful of resort-like accommodations, with restaurants and access to tours. Lake Havasu City is a popular spring break destination, but the rest of the year settles back down into its usual character as a quiet city for retired folks and active adults. If you're looking for a party, come in March or bring your own party. But if you seek quiet outdoor activities and simply comfortable accommodations, Lake Havasu City is ideal for a short-term stay outside the Grand Canyon. And you can't beat the idea of visiting the London Bridge and the Grand Canyon Skywalk in one trip!
