We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in September – we have always wanted to stay at this hotel, so paid extra for one of the nicer rooms. Sadly, we arrived on a day where there was a lot of cloud and rain – not the hotels fault! The hotel is situated right on the edge of Monument Valley, the design and architecture mean it does not impede the natural landscape and has really been designed well. There is ample free parking and check in was quick and easy. We were able to park near our room, so we only had a short trek with the bags, be aware there are no elevators. Our room was very spacious, nicely designed with the Navajo theme throughout and a nice sized bathroom. The room included all the needed amenities, including a fridge and safe (which sadly wasn’t working for us). The bed was very comfortable, but although the room was quiet, we could hear footsteps occasionally from above – but this did not overly disturb us as the ceilings were quite high. Air con was also included and was quiet.

Sadly, our bathroom had several hairs, so we complained to front desk who ensured this would get cleaned and provided us a discount which was very good customer service.
The main attraction for this hotel, is of course the view from your room/balcony – and believe me, this did not disappoint. The balcony was of good size with a table and chairs, and we spent a lot of time admiring the view, and the sunset. Sadly, the weather did not provide us with a sunrise, but we can only imagine how amazing this would be.

We ate at the hotel restaurant that evening, the menu is quite limited, but the food was very tasty and service was good – the price also for the location was good. The following morning, we went for the complimentary buffet breakfast – choice again wasn’t huge, especially the hot buffet was very limited – but what we had was tasty – but please stop using plastic cutlery!

There is no pool at this hotel due to the Navajo lifestyle, which we understood and were aware of before booking. The hotel includes a large Navajo gift shop with a huge array of items, many local or handmade. When staying at the hotel you get a 10% discount at the gift shop, and 2 complimentary bottles of water. We bought several items which we felt were reasonably priced.

One major negative for this hotel – was that the gift shop can be VERY busy with tour buses arriving all the time which is understandable. However, due to the large amounts of people passing through - the toilets in the gift shop area were disgusting and really need overhauling and cleaning more frequently – as this was a major let down and not respective of how nice the rest of the hotel was.

If you are looking for a special place to stay, this hotel really must be on your list, the view from your room is truly spectacular with a view that in our opinion is impossible to beat.

The night we spent at this hotel is one of the most memorable we've ever had in all of our travels. We booked a room with a premium view on the 1st floor, which I was initially worried would not have as good a view as if we were on the 2nd or 3rd floor. I needn't have worried. Our view was breathtaking! The hotel and the rooms themselves are definitely dated, but at least they are spacious. The decor is thematic, in keeping with the location, but could still use a refresh to modernize things a bit. Be aware that there is only one restaurant on the reservation - at the hotel (if it is open when you are there - it was not when we visited due to COVID). The only other option is to drive over to Goulding's Stagecoach restaurant off-reservation or to buy a frozen diiner at Goulding's general store. The Stagecoach restaurant does not take reservations so we opted to buy a frozen pizza at the general store and take it back to the hotel (the rooms have microwaves and fridges). Also take note that you cannot buy alcohol on the reservation so if you want to have some to enjoy while watching the gorgeous sunset you'll need to bring it with you. I recommend taking a hike from the hotel down around the West Mitten if you get a chance. Its not a long hike and it is beautiful! We were there in October but I'm sure it gets very hot in the summer so just beware, as it is tough climbing back up the hill in the sand!

This hotel is beautiful. The lobby, rooms and staff are amazing. Our beds and pillows were comfortable, our views were spectacular.

We stayed in the hotel not the cabins.

The rooms came with a complimentary continental breakfast, with lots of items to choose from, such as hard-boiled eggs, bagels cream cheese, butter, yogurt, hot oatmeal with all off the fixings on the side, as well as every dry cereal box (mini's)l you can think of as well as children's choices too., as well as pancakes. A lot of other items to choose from as well.

They also have a restaurant, that serves dinner with lots of American food choices, or you can order authentic Navajo food from the food truck, and they will deliver it to the restaurant for you when you tell them what time you are going to dine.

We were on the 3rd floor room 311, the views were fantastic. No booze/alcohol is sold on the reservation, we brought our own bottle of wine to have in the room on the patio.

If you have to relive the John Ford view of Monument Valley (as in his famous western movies), the View Hotel is at present your only option. The premium paid for a room gets you a clean, simply furnished room, with a private balcony that almost duplicates the view of Monument Valley that we all saw in the movies. Your experience will be marred as the hotel restaurant and deli were closed during Covid19 and have not re-opened as of May 27, 2021. Your only dining option is to drive 6 miles to another hotel with restaurant or drive 30 minutes to the next town. The View Hotel provides a grab and go breakfast for hotel guests. Pre-Covid, the road that allows access to the View Hotel had a couple of guard shacks, that collected a fee for anyone entering the Monument Valley Park. The park consists of the Hotel, camping, cabins and a dirt road that runs along the valley floor. You could drive the road yourself or hire a touring company. Also, the common areas of the Hotel were available for dining and picture taking. As of May 27, 2021, the Park remains closed except for the View Hotel and cabins. No access to the dirt road for hotel guests or touring companies. Guards will only allow registered hotel guests access to the View Hotel. So, if you must relive the moment of seeing what John Ford saw when filming his westerns, your only choice for your Kodak moment is to book a room at the View Hotel. The Hotel is pleasant enough with generous leather seating scattered around the large lobby. A gift shop features Navaho art.
You'll need to decide if the premium for the room and dining inconvenience is worth the view.

Stayed in premium view cabin #29, the end cabin which meant only one neighboring cabin. The cabin itself was lovely, in pristine condition, except for on occasionally flickering recessed light and an odd lack of nightstand lighting. There was a second room with twin beds. The view of Monument Valley was truly, truly spectacular untill... just prior to sunrise some guy with a bunch of camera gear set up in front of the cabin next door. I thought it was odd, why not shoot from the comfort and privacy of your balcony? Then he moved next to my cabin and I asked him to please go back to his own cabin. He said he was staying in cabin #9 which was likely a lie (saw a different couple at #9). He moved below which ruined the solitude for the premium cabins. I think security eventually came and booted the freeloaders but not until after sunrise. Most people who put the time and energy into booking these few in number, private, unobstructed view cabins do so many months in advance for a reason: they want a bit of peace and quiet and don't want to put up with obnoxious wannabe photographers. Management needs to stop this behavior before it gets worse if they want to keep promising premium views. They do a great job of tightly controlling everything else (entrance fees, which roads you are allowed to use, strict check-in/out times and refund policies, etc.), so control the cheapskates who ruin the experience for paying customers. There were plenty of others places this guy could have set up all of his camera gear.

The View Hotel is well located to Monument Valley. I stayed in their best room, Superior, top floor (3rd), with great views of rock monuments. The room was spacious with the amenities one would expect; large tv, desk with chair, large closet, iron,fridge, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, balcony with ample table and chairs. The bathroom is large with a tub/shower combo. But no handheld shower. The towels are large and good quality. Only negative in the bathroom is tine soap chips ala Motel 6 and thin low quality toilet tissue. The beds are adequate but the pillows, six total, were hard and uncomfortable. The pillows made me think they were old and in need of replacements. I requested fluffy replacement pillows but was shrugged off at the front desk. The restaurant ans a very limited menu and high prices which is probably due to the remote location. The salad was exceptionally good with a wide variety of vegetables and large portion of chicken. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast. They didn't offer fresh made egg breakfast. Just a bowl of hard boiled eggs. They did not appear appetizing. Unfortunate for us on a low carb, low fat, high protein diet. Sadly, I was denied a late checkout of one hour later. They do not put customer satisfaction as high on their priority list as having housekeeping finish by noon. I travel a lot worldwide and am Platinum with Marriott. So I have high expectations.

Room Tip: They have low cost rooms. However, a view room is well worth the extra cost.

No short review can do justice to the exquisite views at the aptly named View Hotel! The minute we walked up to our premium cabin, we were thrilled beyond words and felt at one with nature and the sweeping Monument Valley vistas. The cabins have been located with care, each directly facing the Mittens and valley. Adding to the charm, there are wooden privacy screens on the side ends of each porch, so you’re shielded from neighboring cabins and night lights that might otherwise obscure views of the gorgeous night sky. We took a fantastic guided tour and drive of the loop but also found it hard to leave our perfect little cabin, which was well designed in every way — it felt like one of the smartly appointed “tiny houses” you’d see on HGTV but with the unbeatable views of Monument Valley added in. The porch was the perfect place to enjoy the panorama to the fullest, gleaming dawn to starry late night, but during monsoon storms, it’s also easy to sit right at the cabin’s main window and still savor the exceptional scenery. The restaurant at the hotel offers carryout from both the main menu and local vendor Linda’s, so eating inside your own room can be a wonderful option. The premium cabins, situated front-row, are worth every penny, but the units behind are well tiered, with parking behind each set of cabins, to prevent cars from obstructing the view, and there’s easy access to the hike trail around the Mittens. Absolutely outstanding!

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.

We loved our stay! The room was nice and the store had high-quality Navajo items for sale plus the low-cost regular souvenirs. The lobby was impressive, especially the Kachina dolls on the fireplace. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed due to Covid protocol but there were a few packaged items in the store plus a bagged breakfast. Closest full-service restaurant was 6 miles away.
There’s only one elevator (close to the lobby) so if you need it, be sure to request a room close by. Our “Disabled” room was at the end of the hall furthest away from the elevator which was difficult and no other accessible room available.
The view of the valley and location of the hotel is unbeatable!! Incredible stars!!

Clean if dated room

Good sized bathroom but water not hot enough to bathe comfortably

Very friendly staff

We thought that even after reading so many negative reviews if the restaurant that we’d give them a chance. Don’t bother - it was possibly the worst meal I’ve ever eaten in the USA. My husband had “Arizona Chicken” - they should have called it chicken knuckles for the sparse amount or meat! Surely someone should read the reviews and act upon them? They can’t care about their patrons to serve such swill - no excuses!

But it’s all about the view, and for that, you MUST stay here
