Great hotel - must stay here!
Our stay was great. Room was great - beds were comfortable - bathroom was large. the best part was the patio. Make sure you get up to watch the sunrise from your patio. Restaurant was not open but they had to-go items available in the gift shop - muffins, cereal. They also gave us a $20 gift certificate at the shop.
Five Star Location, Three Star Hotel, but a Five Star Experience
There is no way to describe, or surpass the experience of watching the sun rise over the Monument Valley. You can do so from the small balcony of your room, but for a better experience head out to the decks around the restaurant and gift shop, where you can likely find a quiet spot, and, take your camera. Dusk is similarly magical, and the night sky is lovely, despite the ambient light. The hotel itself is a basic three star spot--more than adequate, comfortable if not luxurious beds, decent bathrooms and some conveniences (frig and microwave, plus a pod coffee maker, if you like those things). Due to Covid, there is no in room service at present and when we visited the restaurant remained closed, which was a minor inconvenience as it required a short drive to Gouldings for a meal. But Gouldings was sort of fun, so that was fine. The fact that the hotel is in the park and run by the Navaho Nation is a huge plus, as you are both where you want to be and supporting the Navaho. Take a guided tour of the valley and you'll see much more than on a drive through, that will make for a perfect stay.
This hotel came highly recommended and it certainly did not disappoint. The view from our room was beautiful, beds were very comfortable, bathroom clean. It was very quiet and peaceful. The restaurant had not yet reopened due to COVID, which was a little disappointing as we were told the food was delicious. Perhaps a return vist some day.
A One of a Kind, Bucket List Hotel
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in a premium starview room at the View, and it was incredible. The view from every room in the hotel is unparalleled, with a panoramic vista of the famous Monument Valley laid out before you. (Think John Ford westerns, which they play on the wall of the outside of the hotel by the way). The air is still and the quiet is complete, and at night you can see shooting stars along and have near-complete darkness. Waking up for the sunrise is highly recommended, the scene is like something out of a painting. While the restaurant was closed due to Covid while we stayed at the View, the hotel gave us breakfast packs before our adventures and offered light snacks in the gift shop. The same shop also has an array of authentic Navajo goods for sale, and the staff was really pleasant and welcoming during every interaction we had with them. A lot of love and thought went into this hotel, and it was nice to stay in a native-owned business while visiting the Navajo Nation. A side note, alcohol is not allowed on tribal land, so please be respectful and enjoy the magic of this place!
One of my favorite places!!!!
This place is absolutely amazing! Amazing location with monument valley view. We watched insane sunrise from our balcony. Very clean everywhere. I didn't expect a lot before I got here. My room was much better than photos on the website. ( They should change photos ) So quiet, we were very close to horse back riding and tour. I would like to come back here someday.
