If you’re visiting monument valley, you cannot go wrong staying here! The view is so spectacular that, honestly, the rooms could have had major problems and I’d still give it five stars. That said, the rooms were comfortable and clean. Watching the sunrise from the comfort of our balcony was a highlight of our entire trip. Highly recommend!
It is called the View for a reason
We arrived after dusk, so there was no park entrance fee. Ample parking. The front desk Clerk was not so friendly and when we inquired as to where the huts were that we would meet our tour the next morning she rudely told us she did not know and that the tours were not associated with them. The clerk later on in the night and the following morning were lovely and helpful. The huts were actually a few hundred feet from the Lobby. We did not see them in the dark. The restaurant is pricey and serves mediocre food. By the time we ate, they had run out of some things. The included breakfast was just awful. Cold pancakes with bottled syrup, powdered scrambled eggs and cereal. The adjacent shop is priced 5x higher than you can find elsewhere. Don’t be fooled by the 50% off signs on items. Even at that they were much higher than other places. That being said, the room was clean and spacious. But the next morning..just wow. The view of the sunrise over the monuments made it worth the pricey $300 per night.
Location is breathtaking
We stayed one night in one of the cabanas, they are small but very nice and the view from the terrasse is ... breathtaking. Even if the price is quite high, it's worth being there are sunrise and sunset. Restaurant is good.
Heads up for the restaurant
We visited this "The View" restaurant in The View hotel as we thought this restaurant would be okay and was only option near Monument Valley. Turns out it wasn't. Actually too bad. The food is very different from what you would expect. Please note that the food served here is expensive for frozen food that they just heated up in a microwave. I would recommend to not eat here and eat somewhere before here as we saw better options before coming to Monument Valley.
Terrific hotel in an incredible location. Very comfortable and clean, rooms were well appointed, and you can’t beat the views! Weather was perfect in January and we weren’t competing with lots of other tourists.
