Over Far View Lodge
In het Mesa Verde National Park vindt u nog overblijfselen van oude indianenwoningen, in uitgesleten rotsspleten in de wanden van een kloof. Een uniek stukje historie in Amerika! Bij de ingang van het park, met een fraai uitzicht over de lager gelegen vallei, bevindt zich de sfeervolle Far View Lodge. Alle eenvoudig ingerichte standard kamers beschikken over een balkon. De lodge heeft verder een stijlvol western-restaurant en iets verderop ligt Far View Terrace Marketplace voor eenvoudige maaltijden.
Deze accommodatie wordt niet aangeboden in het winterseizoen.

"You're paying for convenience"
First off I got purchased the double deluxe room with advance purchase pricing from their website. Never do this! When i got to the hotel, the employee kindly told me that the view was better from a Queen size room and I could downgrade. Plus it would also save me some money, which they would refund me. Great! However, after checkout it turns out that they didn't refund me the difference that they said they would. So, lesson learned is NEVER book on their website. The rooms are of course tiny and if you're in one with an adjoining door that can join another room, you'll hear everything. We unfortunately had very loud screaming children next to us who woke up at 5 am. Lastly, there was a dried white substance on the back of the black pillows, which looked exactly what you're probably thinking it is as you read this. Would I stay here again? Probably not. I would prefer to stay in Cortez, and just get up early to drive
"Convenient but pricey and small"
As in other national parks, the Far View lodge at Mesa Verde is provided by a private concessioner. And since they have a monopoly, it is a bit pricey. The rooms are nice enough, but nothing special except for the location and view, and more expensive than you would expect for a similar room elsewhere. I paid almost $180 for a two-bed room. But in a NPS lodge, you're really paying for the convenience of being in the park. And Far View Lodge is pretty much right in the middle of Mesa Verde, so it saves you almost an hour of driving time, each way, from the nearest town, Cortez. My room had a small fridge, desk, and free/unsecured (and very slow) wifi, but no TV or microwave. There was no closet, but there was an armoire--although, as others have mentioned in their reviews, it was so close to the bed you can't fully open the doors to use it. The room did have a balcony facing the Mesa, which afforded great views. And since the units are built on the side of a hill, they are terraced--which I am assuming provides equally good views for most or all of the other rooms. My bathroom had a tub/shower and toilet, while the sink was across from the bathroom, behind the entry door. It had rustic-themed hardware and unvarnished pine doors and baseboards, but everything else was like you would find in a regular budget-level hotel. The desk staff was friendly and helpful, but whoever did our housekeeping didn't sweep the laminate floors and left some of our pillows on the floor. The reception building has a small downstairs workout room with an elliptical, two treadmills, and barbells. The Metate restaurant, which serves dinner, is also located there. For a (very pricey) cafeteria-style breakfast you have to walk 1/4 mile down the hill to the Far View Terrace. In short, Far View Lodge is very conveniently located for in-park adventures and it offers a great view of the surrounding landscape, but the rooms themselves are nothing special and can be more expensive than you would expect for similar rooms in town.
"Beautiful views of Mesa Verde"
We have stayed at many national park lodges and Far View Lodge was better than expected. The view from our room was beautiful. The wifi was spotty but that is probably to be expected so far up in the mountains. There aren't many choices of where to stay when visiting Mesa Verde but Far View Lodge was a great spot for our family. We absolutely loved the Metate Room Restaurant which was close to our lodge. Very good food!
"Our room had an expansive terrace view but lacked a bit of "elbow room""
Darned good view from our room, which was clean, modern, and had a comfortable (king) bed. The room was just a bit small if you have 2 suitcases and some tote bags, but booking a slightly larger room outside the park is just too inconvenient for this particular park due to the long-ish drive into/out-of the park. It's an easy stroll from your room to The Metate restaurant (make a reservation or you are likely to have a late dinner). This lodge did seem underutilized and fairly quiet compared to some other national park lodges, which, for US, is a GOOD thing. We very much enjoyed our stay overall.
"Nice room, awesome location in the park"
We stayed in room 111, which is a double queen room, upstairs on the end of the building. The room was nice with a small fridge and a desk. Vanity area is right when you walk in the door, which is a little odd, but manageable. Just make sure anyone coming in the room opens the door slowly! The bathroom is very tiny, with a tiny shower. The biggest problem with it is a lack of some place to put your clothes. As our toilet did not have a lid, we had to lay our clothes on the floor which was less than ideal. All the rooms have a small balcony with a bistro table and two chairs. We enjoyed sitting outside and taking in the view. Our 2nd morning, 4 bucks came by to pay us a visit! One was just huge! We had only reserved one night, but arrived late that night and wanted a 2nd day in the park because there is so much to see. The desk clerks were able to keep us in the same room for the 2nd night which was great so we didn't have to pack up, move and unpack! If you are going to Mesa Verde it is worth a few extra dollars to stay in the park!
