The room we had at Yavapai was very, very basic. You could hear a lot through the walls, so it wasn't very quiet. The main door to the room was loud; you could hear when the neighbors left the room. Not a lot to do around there once it gets dark. There is a Yavapi Cafe adjacent to the lodge that serves food, and a gift shop is adjacent, as well. The post office is just steps away.
The money we paid was definitely due to the location and not the quality of the room. Regardless, it was a warm bed and a hot shower in the morning.

The spacious rooms at Yavapai are very comfortable and clean. After a hike in the Grand Canyon you’ll either feel grateful for a hot shower and a soft bed or saddened to suddenly feel so separated from the nature around you…
One thing to keep in mind if you do like to take those hot showers- water conservation at the Canyon is a high priority. Try to re-use towels and use minimal amounts of water.
Breakfasts at the Yavapai lodge are an excellent choice. Choose from cereals, yogurt, scrambled eggs or omelettes, cinnamon buns and hot cereal. Sit in the room on the left of the cashier. Let the sunlight hit your face and wake you up a bit.
At night, take a walk over to the El Tovar hotel for dinner.
