If you come to visit the sand dunes, then this is the best choice. Splurge on a deluxe room for a more spacious experience. They have vaulted ceilings. The patio is covered . We brought some ground beef and made burgers on the grill provided. Hint: bring your own spatula. They provide everything you need. Refrigerator, microwave and very clean modern bathroom. We didn’t use the indoor pool, but it looked very nice. Remember, to bring in what you need because it is off the beaten track. They also provide a modest breakfast and are dog friendly.

It's not a Hilton property, but - it's clean, the owners make serious effort to take care of guests and their property, and the hummingbirds are worth a trip by themselves. Seriously, they have 10+ feeders out back, and most of the day... there are at least 3x birds on EACH feeder. The sunrises/sunsets are amazing; the views of the dunes are great... and the breakfast even in these idiotic COVID times are good. Hot Tip: sit on the PARKING LOT side in the evenings, so you're out of the direct sun, and you'll not bake in the heat. RECOMMENDED!

My thoughts on National Park Lodging is you are staying here for the location. Not the 5 star luxury experience. Proximity to the luxurious views are what you want. This motel is obviously older, but clean and well maintained. The AC kept up nicely with the 95+ F July heat. The shower did a great job of washing sand away. The humming birds were so cool. This spot is apparently in a flyway or natural stop for hundreds of humming birds and the lodge has lots of feeders set up. We arrived late in the afternoon and went to the dunes just to get a feel for the morning dune hiking. We rented a sled from the adjacent store and I recommend that for the inexperienced. (as we were) We went back out to the dunes early in the morning and spent a few hours hiking and sledding. Then, we went back to the room to wash off before setting off for our next destination. That was perfect as we beat the heat and had a nice clean, sand-free trip from there on out. There were COVID restrictions in place, so the breakfast was grab-n-go. We just grabbed a few milks, muffins and yogurts for our boys to snack on after burning energy in the dunes. (they are a workout)

Great Sand Dunes NP is pretty remote and if you don't want to camp or stay in an RV park, this is pretty much it for about a half an hour. We stayed in the park view queen room which came with two queen beds. All the rooms (I believe) have a patio that overlooks the park and the best part of the room is this amazing view! We loved sitting out there to watch the sunset over the dunes. The room itself is pretty small and basic. We also had a few lights that did not work - the light on the patio didn't work and we didn't find that out until after their office was closed. Additionally one of the indoor lights was also burned out. The only food nearby is at the Oasis restaurant, which is takeout only. We were disappointed to learn they were serving an abbreviated menu, so be prepared for that. Breakfast at the Lodge was still a hot breakfast - they said they are letting four people in the office at a time and you tell them what you want, then they cook it and you bring it back to your room; I had a waffle. I was a bit disappointed though that they didn't stick to the four person limit. My husband and I were in the office waiting on our food when a family of six stuck their head in and asked if they could also come in (and not all of them were wearing masks). The woman cooking said "Sure" so now we had way more than four people in this tiny office. Additionally the woman cooking was not wearing her mask correctly (not covering her nose). I feel all staff should be required to wear correctly-worn masks during a pandemic and that they should stick to no more than 4 in the tiny office at a time. Ideally just make it no more than one group/family unit at a time.
