We changed reservations at the last minute when we arrived in Chinle and saw the beautiful grounds for Holiday Inn, just outside the Canyon de Chelly entrance. We are so glad we did because the room was great, the swimming pool was devine, and the hallway carpeting was amazing, SW Indian meets Persian. So sorry I did not photograph it.... More

Standard chain motel - super convenient for Canyon de Chelly but Chinle is a run down, depressing town. Rooms are clean and functional. Grounds and pool area are well presented. Staff are friendly and helpful. Packs of dogs running around the area though - not scary animals but a bit strange to see. Dining options in Chinle are beyond poor... More

Canyon de chilly was a 5 min drive away to entrance of park. How ever the front staff not particularly helpful, we arrived early couldn't check in (which was fine) but asked to hang... More

It took 45 minutes to get food after we ordered. All we ordered was burgers, a salad and a Mexican combo plate. Then, the food was awful. We mentioned to the hostess, Wanda, that we thought we should get a discount bc we had to wait 45 minutes and she said "Everyone waited 45 minutes." Seems to us that everyone... More

We stayed at this hotel in 1997 while visiting Canyon de Chelly when it was relatively new and had a very good experience. I booked a room this spring while traveling from the Southwest to the Midwest with some trepidation, not knowing what the hotel would be like today. I was pleased to see that it is still a very...

I was not expecting much but this was pretty nice considering it was in Chinle. It's just outside the entrance of Canyon de Chelly which is the reason to stay here alone. Its nice having a restaurant on-site but service is very slow so be prepared to wait. You will need to pay for breakfast as it is not included.... More

We stayed here because of its close proximity to Canyon de Chelly in Navajo lands. It is very close to the visitor center and tour guides pick you up here. The room was clean , large enough with a comfortable bed and good shower and bathroom. There is also a nice pool which we did not use. No free breakfast... More

Checked in during the afternoon and no complimentary coffee was available(usually have a cup after a long drive). There is no breakfast, but it can be purchased at the onsite restaurant. Usually, if a restaurant is on-site, a chit is included for a complimentary breakfast.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Holiday Inn Canyon de Chelly hotel in Chinle, Arizona is located at the gateway to the Canyon de Chelly National Monument, the 2nd largest canyon in the United States! Just minutes from the canyon, you can tour the area with one of the local tour guides or you may do a self-guided tour of the canyon look-out points. The canyon has a total of 11 look-out points, all which have views of ancient ruins, petroglyphs, and pictographs. The hotel is a part of the historic Garcia's Trading Post located in the heart of the Navajo Nation Reservation. Enjoy a delicious meal in the Garcia's Restaurant which has a casual southwestern flavor. Or if you would rather enjoy a quiet and private meal, room service is available during regular restaurant hours. In our giftshop you can find beautiful Native American jewelry and southwestern works of art. For your convenience, vehicle tours into the canyon are available at the giftshop. At the end of the day, you can take a stroll through our beautiful courtyard or take a refreshing dip in our heated, outdoor pool(seasonal). ... more   less
