Having entered the park, you have to complete a 15 mile switchback road up to the Registration Area. Our cabin, a double near the back of the lodge, was just perfect. television was not available which suited us just fine. WiFi was free, as was all the toiletries and coffee, 'fridge, lovely shower room plus a beautiful balcony for evening... More

This is an unusual hotel which maximises its stunning location. We had a lower floor room with an uninterupted view of the National Park. Although the rooms are not particularly fashionably decorated, they were comfortable and adequate. The walls were thin in the rooms but this wasn't a problem. Some people have commented on the lack of TV but we... More

This hotel location is fabulous! I would say this is a very special place but not for the person who wants a spa hotel. This hotel is for someone who wants to see the National Park and tour the area with well qualified personnel. Ruth was a wonderful tour guide-highly recommend her tour. The night supervisor Nathan was wonderful as... More

It is really worth staying in the park because it is a long drive between the entrance of the park and the hikes. You may have a very good view but in our room, the only view we had was on another building. We were in Kiva rooms and I was surprised because the ones (we had two connecting rooms)... More

If you aren't a camper, the Far View Lodge is the next best place to stay at Mesa Verde National Park (actually, it's the only place to stay in Mesa Verde). The Lodge is well run, and what it lacks in amenities (no TV, dodgy Internet) it more than makes up for with the amazing views--every room has a balcony... More

I cannot believe the poor reviews by some regarding this property. This is inside a National Park and why a TV is required is beyond me. What were they thinking? The check in personnel(Ramona and Linda) were great-helpful-informative and very pleasant. We had a room on the front tier which was a small amount more and worth every cent. The... More

Our experience with this hotel was unfortunate. We stayed there towards the end of April, shortly after the hotel opened for the season. A few of the problems could be attributed to this, but most of them were due to the design of the rooms and a lack of needed upgrading. Nothing, however, can explain our experience with dinner in...

Restaurant at registration area unbelievably GREAT. Presentation and taste great. Wine selection great. 3. Rooms. No TV, which was great. All have great views.... More

We were expecting basic and were very pleasantly surprised at this clean and well run property. It's older but the rooms are very comfortable and quiet, and you can't beat the location. Tours leave from here in the early morning, and it would be a long drive from the nearest towns. Staff are very friendly and efficient.

Family stayed at the Far View Lodge for one night. The room was ok, nice view. The location cannot be beat since the drive out to the actual attractions runs over 45 mins from the entrance, with a few cool overlooks/stops on the way. So if you are staying more than a few hours, a good idea would be to... More
