It is worth every penny! Wake just before dawn and celebrate the sun rising over Monument Valley while in the privacy of your room on the balcony. The majesty of It will forever be ingrained in your memory!

Unbelievable views of the monuments made famous in the old westerns, particularly John Wayne's "The Searchers". There's even a little John Wayne cabin on property along with a stagecoach and wagon.

Very nice room, good quality bed and bathroom facilities. Great view from our room over valley. Very noisy air con, and sounded like elephant family living upstairs. Reception could be more welcoming. Wifi didn't work.

We took the tour of the valley during a tour and found it very dirty but exciting and informative. Our driver was very nice and interesting and gave us enough time at each location stop.
