Grand Canyon Thunderbird Lodge has 55 hotel rooms. It is conveniently located between El Tovar and Bright Angel Lodge along the Grand Canyon South Rim. Kachina and Thunderbird are twin contemporary lodges. They are called lodges, but the buildings and guest rooms are more like that in a typical motel. All of the rooms are ideally suited for families.

Guest rooms have two queen beds or one king bed, in-room coffee, refrigerator, safe, television, telephone, and full bath. There's no air-conditioning in all guest rooms. They use evaporative coolers. Rooms designed for guests with physical disabilities are available.
