Hualapai Ranch
Reviewed 25 May 2017

This review is for the 'Western' town, not the lodgings (which we didn't stay at). This was the hokiest, lamest tourist attraction I've been to in a long time. Knock-off cowtown. Boring. Nothing to do. Boring views. The only half-decent thing about this was the food at the restaurant. It was ok... nothing special, but really, nothing about this 'ranch' was great. Skip this part on the Hualapai reserve.

We are sorry to hear you found Hualapai Ranch "lame." While it may not have appealed to you, other visitors to Grand Canyon West enjoy it, especially those with young children. We hope you enjoyed the recent of your experience at Grand Canyon West. Thank you for visiting.

The cabins were nice , clean and great towels .But when i got up in the morning to experience the "multiple hiking , biking and jogging trails" as advertised Security forbade me to step off the very limited "Ranch "property .absolutely not one single trail. The horseback ride offerd was only for 30 minutes ,not 60 not 90 because they were "short staffed" even though I got there at 8 am with no one else around they refused to let me book an hour , no one else showed up for at least a couple hours after .No fires no Smores no stories .
It was so bad it was surreal ..Sold as a frontier experience.a complete falsehood .If you want to get close to nature go somewhere else .

The skywalk was pretty amazing. They dont let you take your own photos and the package is $65 if you want them. Be prepared to spend extra money:) The restaurant has breath taking views. The entire reservation has no alcohol. If you like a glass of wine at night, you'll have to sneak it in your room.

Service was ok. Better at the Skyview than the western town.

I would not recommend eating the ribs. Eat the chicken. They are the only two options served at the main
restaurant.

We're glad to hear you enjoyed Skywalk and the views from the restaurant. It just recently opened and guests really seem to like it. Thanks for visiting.

Walking onto the property you are welcomed by everyone. Front desk clerks couldn't have been more helpful. There were shoot outs, horse rides a bank robbery, a mechanical bull! It was too windy for the campfire so they brought us to the dining hall and made us smores. They told us about the land, the people, the sacred grounds.

They have a bus you hop on and they take you to the grand canyon - sky walk - it was super convenient also.

They make you feel special and involved, and everyone has stories to tell. It was truly a great experience.

Really convenient, clean and relaxing. Buses run constantly perfect stay for a day or two. The only draw back is water pressure but I don't think they can help that because water is is such high demand
