Over The View Hotel
The View Hotel ligt op het land van de Navajo, wordt ook door hen gerund en overal in het interieur vindt u vele decoratieve verwijzingen naar deze illustere Native Americans. Vanaf uw eigen balkon bent u zo dicht bij de rotsformaties dat u het gevoel zult krijgen dat de massieve zandstenen monumenten in het uitgestrekte landschap zo aan te raken zijn. Het hotel is ook uiterst milieuvriendelijk, om zo min mogelijk impact te hebben op de fraaie omgeving. De ruime kamers zijn sfeervol en met oog voor de cultuur van de Navajo ingericht. In het restaurant kunt u ter nadere kennismaking met de Navajo-cultuur genieten van heerlijke traditionele maaltijden.

"The Name Says It All"
We booked a room on the top floor and we were not disappointed with the view. The hotel itself has standard amenities and is decorated with Navajo art and images. Our room was a long walk from the lobby, but also very quiet. The front desk clerk was very welcoming and efficient. The View is not a 5 star hotel, but considering its location, we were very pleased with the experience. The room had a refrigerator and microwave. After reading the reviews for the restaurant, we stopped in Kayenta (approximately 20 miles to the south) at the grocery store (Basha's) and bought food and snacks. We ate our meals on our balcony, with its magnificent view. Truly a memorable experience. Suggestion- set your expectations for the hotel appropriately, take care of your own meals, and enjoy the fantastic views.
We visited the Mighty 5 Utah National Parks and went out of our way to stay here. The room and the restaurant were both excellent - but the views are fantastic. We stayed on the top floor away from the lobby - took star and moonrise pictures at night and just looked out over the landscape during the day. We only stayed one night (for the stars) - but could have stayed a couple in order to do some tours during the day.
"The view from The View is fabulous but the rest of it is dinstinctly average"
There really is no choice other than this hotel to enjoy Monument Valley - yes, because the views are second to none, and yes, it's one of the only 2 hotels near or in the actual valley. We were based far enough away to make it a 3 day trip - a day to drive up, arriving at sunset so the rocks looked amazing (and arriving after the entry booth to the park had closed saving us $20), a day to enjoy the sights and a day to drive back. The front of the hotel is a bit messy with what looks like staff accommodation in a sort of compound at the front of the car park, a big car park for guests and one for day visitors in front of the Visitor Centre. We were checked in OK, found our way to the room with no offer of help, and settled down on the small balcony to watch the play of light on the rocks. It truly was amazing. Dinner was in the one and only restaurant - the hotel seemed to be full of a Japanese tour group so it meant a short wait for a table even though there was a room not being used. Because this is a dry hotel as per Navajo policy, there was no bar to wait in so a quick trawl around the overpriced gift shop sufficed until our buzzer went. I was prepared for a simple menu catering to the majority of tourists with a nod to Navajo cuisine but quite honestly, the food was awful - bland, poorly prepared, just about not frozen vegetables and definite lack of variety. Our waiter was a sweet boy doing his best. No point in lingering with bad food and no bar, so back off to the comfortable room to watch tv and wait for the moon to come up for a different view from the balcony. Breakfast the next morning was dire - tasteless scrambled eggs, raw potatoes, horrible pastries, synthetic yoghurts and do-it-yourself toast in a domestic toaster. Warm juice and get your own coffee - no staff around, no fresh fruit, no tomatoes, sausages or anything other than artificially enhanced cereals. Dreadful and not included in the very expensive room rate. We elected to do a tour with a Navajo guide after finding one in the deserted visitor centre - well worth the money. Then we headed off for a drive along the scenic route to Medicine Hat and back. We decided to eat at Gouldings rather than risk the View's dining room again Here the food was slightly more palatable with slightly more variety but still overpriced for what it was. On the drive back to the hotel, it was noticeable how the yellow lighting in the car park spoilt the effect of the night sky - surely there must be a better alternative. Another overpriced disgusting breakfast (we paid for it so my husband was going to eat it!) and we checked out. On asking for a copy of the bill, we were told it was not available and that it was emailed to us. No sign of it yet... So my advice would be - stay at the hotel for the view from your balcony even though it is very expensive. Bring your own alcohol for a sneaky drink in the room (yes, there is a fridge) and try not to eat anything. Having read the bad reports on Tripadvisor, it is interesting that there is NO comment at all from the hotel management other than one complaint that Navajos were not allowed to stay there. This did prompt a response from the hotel but the 100's of other complaints have not merited a reply. This is such a shame because it could be a really fantastic experience to stay here and it is a valuable resource to the local community, being owned by a Navajo group but it seems to me that they don't really care because there is precious little competition. Such a shame....
"Can't beat the view!"
We stayed at this unique hotel in the middle of nowhere for a single night in October 2016. While planning our vacation we were a bit uncertain about booking a room at this hotel because the rate was well above our budget. But we were so pleased that we did. What a view! Well worth the price! One of the highlights of our vacation. We stayed two adults and two kids aged 9 and 11 in a 'Premium Valley View' room on the second floor which suited us well. We had dinner in the restaurant. Good decent Navajo inspired food. Competent and friendly service. We were lucky to get a table by the window with an amasing view of Monument Valley as the sun was setting. Awesome. The hotel and rooms are good, clean, well maintained.
This hotel is a must if you are travelling to Monument Valley, it is situated actually in Monument, and the views are just breathtaking. Rooms are nice and comfortable, it is a dry hotel so if you want a wine or beer you need to bring with you to drink in your room. Restaurant in the View is basic but nice, nothing to get dressed up for, but you are not going there for the food....its the view. Absolutely heaven this place, and will definitely be back
