Great accommodations and handy to Canyon De Chelly. Very comfortable beds and the cafeteria generated some great home cooking. Mutton stew with fry bread was awesome. Excellent trading post beside the cafeteria.More

No bar I'm afraid but you can take your own as I did. Breakfast is available at a charge. Not too varied but enough to keep you going until lunch or dinner somewhere. That said it's still a lovely place to stay.
