"Kiva Deluxe view renovated room was convenient to lodge"
Visited Far View Lodge in early October and stayed 2 nights in a Kiva Deluxe room. Our room was in 10-unit building next to lodge where the office, Metate restaurant, lounge, and store is located so it had very convenient access. Room was recently renovated, clean and comfortable with modern sink and shower fixtures. Room had a refrigerator and telephone, without TV and Wifi went in and out. Visiting late season, the Metate restaurant was only one open for breakfast buffet and dinner. Had dinner in lounge upstairs (TV in the lounge) on first night - service was slow because they were short staffed. There's a guest computer downstairs in the lodge where we printed out our airline boarding passes. Enjoyed our stay and would stay here again if we visit the park again.
"Surely worth the stop"
We spent four days in unit 131, king top floor. Amazing sunrises from the bed, stars can also be seen from bed. There is a nice little deck with a table and chairs, great view! Coffee maker, refrigerator, plenty of space. Only a minute walk to the dinning hall or lounge. The restaurant is decent, but after the first night we ate every meal in the lounge. Not a typical lounge, above the dinning hall with a better view. The lounge is well stocked and the menu is great.
We have stayed here before and knew it was basic that is no TV small space but this time we shared our room with mice.they were moving around the room all nite. Even chewed on my husband's glasses. The bathroom floor was mushy felt like you would fall thru at any time. There was a drain problem in the shower. I know it's hard to maintain these rooms but I feel when a room is in an inferior condition it should not be rented!!
"Not bad, not great"
If you want to stay in the park and are not a camper, this is what you get. Recommend asking if a second floor room. They are larger and, as there are only two floors in each building, you will avoid hearing people walking (kids running!) above you. There is no tv and wifi is useless. But, hey, you've come to enjoy the park and views, which are excellent, so don't worry about the small stuff. Staff was terrific, except for inexplicably rude restaurant "hostess", whom I reported to management.
"Good Value for a National Park Lodge"
We stayed at the Far View Lodge in Mesa Verde National Park for 1-night in late Sep ($161). The lodge is located at 8,000 feet in the heart of the park, about 8 miles from the major ruins like Cliff Palace and Balcony House and the secondary ruins at Wetherill Mesa. Set on a hill above the Wetherill road junction, it consists of a number of single storey buildings that back up the hill, each with a set of rooms with balconies overlooking the vast horizons in the distance. Our room, a renovated double queen, was comfortable and had an American southwest vibe that nicely preserved the sense of place. Entered through an alcove with the vanity/sink to one side and the bathroom to the other, the bedroom flowed to the room-wide deck and the views behind. The room was furnished with an end table, desk/chair, armoire, mini-fridge, but no TV. The beds had decorative blankets with a Navaho motif, with a similar blanket hanging from the wall for chilly evenings on the deck (curiously, made in Oaxaca, Mexico). The deck had a table, 2 chairs and a great view â€“ a nice spot for an afternoon drink after a long day in the park. The only negative was the connecting door to the adjacent room â€“ noise did travel easily. With no TV, though, it would not be a problem unless your neighbours were noisy. Dinner at the hotel was excellent â€“ there were several entrees at $20-25 and a couple over $30 â€“ but service was very slow. They offered a breakfast buffet, but a bit expensive at $11. We opted for a cafeteria-style breakfast at the adjacent Farview Terrace â€“ bad decision. The best bet is probably to grab a coffee and wait until you get to Durango or Cortez for breakfast. Relative to accommodation in other national parks, the Far View Lodge is the cheapest and most available (we reserved 6 weeks ahead, not the year required elsewhere) that I have seen. The value delivered for the price charged was good.
