This is an "old-fashioned" sort of motel in that the building and amentities are on the older side, with a double room about $90 a night. That's not to say anything is decrepit or will offend you. Recapture lodge can best be described as "rustic." The rooms and beds are comfortable enough. The Lodge owners and staff are very friendly... More

Hard to think of enough superlatives for this place. Great, character-filled place with staff and owners who know everything about the area, and fellow guests (most of whom are hikers) who are eager to share tales of their travels. I don't think I've ever been in a hotel like this in the U.S., in fact. It had such a somewhere... More

Recapture Lodge is a quaint and somewhat rustic lodge located in an out-of-the-way area miles away from any "supermarket." My son, his friend and I loved it there. It was QUIET. It was super-clean. But best of all the owners, Jim and Luanne, are authentically caring human beings who go out of their way to give you great information (including... More

The strength of this motel is the staff. This is a great place for out of doors folks. The staff knows the area well and is willing to share. The office has an outstanding collection of maps of the local area. They will provide excellent advice on where and how to go anywhere in the Comb Ridge area. In general... More

We were taking an RV trip through the west and I could not stand another night in the RV. We booked Recapture because it was pretty close to Monument Valley. It was clean and the owners were nice. One of a kind experience.

If you use "dated" as a negative, stop reading here and don't book Recapture. It's not the kind of place you'd enjoy or understand. If "no phone" is an issue, you need color (or any other) coordination of decor, or you expect every amenity to work perfectly every time without any eccentricities, you'll have a better stay elsewhere. This is... More

Nice and confortable hotel on the road to the monument valley! Great hospitality and service, nice rooms and an incredible surrounding. The real way to life the west. Nice swimming pool and relaxing area.

I am sad that it was just a layover, would have stay longer if I had more time. The staff was very friendly, and follow his recommendation I took a walk to the San Juan river following the trails in the property (magnificent view, I must say). The building is said to be old but is definitely well decorated. Complimentary... More

I recently (Nov/2014) stayed here for one night as part of a photography workshop. Whenever I write one of these reviews I usually read the 1-stars first just to get a sense of perspective and see if there is a pattern that maybe I missed. Having done that I must say that with all due respect to those reviewers, their... More

This a great little Retro place to stay. Brought back memories of when I was a kid travelling with my parents in the 1960s. The owners/management were very nice and excited that we stayed with them. The rooms were quaint and cozy. The outdoor hot tub was execellent. Breakfast was nice and filling. Will go there again, when we return... More
