“The owners here paid attention to detail - Very Clean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

The owners here paid attention to detail. This is not a hotel chain so there is actually heart and soul in this place. The room was spacious and clean (even under the bed). The towels were soft and fresh smelling. Mattress was firm and not too soft (not over used – slept in). Price was reasonable and location was perfect! Nothing was broken or out of place. I contacted the owner with a question and they promptly replied. The Wi-Fi could use an upgrade, but it is possible that the problems were due to the onslaught of thunderstorms. Air Conditioner could have been a little quieter. Overall it was great for the location. They really only lack a hearty continental breakfast or an onsite restaurant. I’d stay here again in a heartbeat! Next time I will try one of the cabins.

Room Tip: Try renting one of their cabins - private porch and away from the main hotel.

Thank you for your kind words. We are a work in progress and are constantly working on improving. We agree the wifi can be slow at times. We are in constant communications with Frontier Communications looking for ways to improve this and have been told that in 2014 they are looking at increasing bandwidth to the area.......

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

My family of 4 decided to take a trip out west to see the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert, & Petrified Forest. It was a 2000 mile drive that started from Denver airport. My husband found this hotel on line as we were traveling on our way to the Grand Canyon. The main hotel, lobby & cabins all have the rustic feel of a log cabin & decorated w American Indian flare. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin that was just built by the owner we were told. It smelled of fresh paint & new carpeting. It had a beautiful full kitchen & living room w a flat screen TV w cable. It also had a small porch w 2 chairs to sit outside & enjoy the night sky. The beds, 1 king & 2 twins were comfortable & we all slept well. The large bathroom had 2 entrances 1 from the kids room & 1 from the master room. It had a large tile shower & sink. All brand new. We were told that they will soon be building a pool & hot tub.
We only stayed the 1 night on our way to Arizona but we liked it so much that we stayed there again a few days later on our way back towards Denver.
There are 2 nice restaurants, both w good food & also an historical fort down the road that we visited which was amazing & I recommend you take the time to see.

Room Tip: I recommend cabin 7 it is brand new.

Have stayed here several times in their cabins over the years and still find the accommodations very comfortable. They recently had a price increase which I only noticed because we had booked our reservations much earlier in the year prior to our arrival. There was a bit of confusion getting the price change straightened out but since I had the original email confirmation they honored the price stated at time of booking. Finding a good dinner in Bluff is still elusive but across the street there is a great place for breakfast and lunch.

Thank you for returning and being our guests. We did have a slight increase in the room charge. We have worked hard to keep the prices reasonable and need to do a slight increase. We will always honor rates that were booked prior to the adjustment. Again, thank you and we truly do appreciate your business.

One of the more remote areas in the U.S. A nice find! A clean, presentable, up-to-date, and quality establishment for such a locale. Well centered for days of sight seeing and vacationing
in very unique wonders.

We truly are in the heart of the great outdoors. There are so many natural wonders to explore that people return year after year and still find new areas for exploration.

We were very pleased with our stay, we had been at Monument Valley in the afternoon and were going to four corners and Mesa Verde the next day. Arrived around six, checked into our room for a short rest before dinner. Everything was very clean and in very good condition, Food choices in Bluff are very limited, we went to Twin Rocks Restaurant and had such a great dinner we went back for breakfast. After leaving, about 50 miles away the Inn called to tell me they had found a phone in our room, my wife was missing hers, I asked them if they would mail the phone to my home in North Carolina, they said they would be glad to. I told them to just add whatever they needed to my credit card for sending the phone. They only charged me $3.26 for packing, trip to the post office and postage. the phone was waiting at my home when I got home seven days later. Honest people run this Inn, Please stay here if you are ever in the area.

Room Tip: No elevator, so ask for a ground floor if you can't do steps

We stayed so we could not only explore monument valley, but also Natural Bridges, Valley of the Gods, and Gooseneck State park, on our way to Moab. It's an excellent centralized location for all of that.

It was extremely clean - well kept and honestly I was surprised to know how long the property has been there - It looks like it was built yesterday.

The rooms are spacious, the rooms, lobby and other areas beautifully decorated, and I loved the little "convenience store cubby" they had there for toiletries, and ice cream and goodies.

We did our laundry in the nice laundry area they have set up, and loved the porch and chairs you can sit outside and listen to the desert at night.

The only complaint I have is the internet was REALLY slow. I was trying to get some business emails answered and gave up because the connection just wouldn't shape up. So I gave up. lol.

So delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. I have to absolutely agree that during the time you were here the internet was slooooooooow. Frontier tells us that they took a direct hit from lightening and had to order in new boards. The entire west end of Bluff was either totally down or in the "very slow" mode. They have been working on this and we are told we are back in operations. Sorry for the inconvenience..

Great place to stay in Bluff. Charming setting, clean and spacious rooms. Friendly environment. Definitely the best place around. They do not serve breakfast, but just 1 mile away there is a good spot to eat a bountyful first meal (Twin Rocks) managed by the same family.
