Need some advice on places to stay/eat/etc...

My friends and I are thinking of doing a road trip this summer--either in June or maybe early July--through some of the national parks. The tentative itinerary is here: http://goo.gl/maps/np8hy
(passing through vegas on the way back in case we want to relax spa style). One or two of the national parks might get cut if things change between now and then--our main goal is to go see the Grand Canyon. Also, we're thinking 8-10 days so if all this is unreasonable then we'll cut a stop.
We're just in the very early stages of planning so I have no idea where to start. Are there any cool must-eat, must-see places along that route? Also, places to stay? We were thinking about camping at first but decided that maybe hotels/motels would be better. Cheap is fine, and rooms will be split between several people.
Any other tips are welcome, as well! I'd also love to know if there are neat little areas within the parks that we shouldn't miss.
