I loved waking up to the beauty and peacefulness of this lodge perched high on a Mesa in the Mesa Verde National Park. The room was decorated in a southwestern theme. Everything was clean. The toilet leaked a little but it worked! We had a small refrigerator. The reception desk is open 24/7 so we received a cheerful reception at... More

We visited Mesa Verde and loved our stay at the Far View Lodge. It was clean and the rooms were updated. Bathroom was small but it's a bathroom. There is no TV or phone in the rooms but the view from your private balcony is all you need. Wi-Fi was available and worked well for us. In general, throughout the... More

Booked this hotel last minute as we didn't care for the noise and bustle of Durango. The hotel couldn't be in a better location for exploring the park, but note that there is a 30 minute drive from the front gates of the park to the hotel. This is a blessing and a curse, as you can book early guided... More

The property is clean and has location, location, location. The bath room is small, the room is small but it serves the purpose of being conviently inside MESA VERDE national park. Breakfast is pricey and I suggest you bring your own. There is a refrigerater, small and ice is available. Reservations will not send you a confirmation by e mail.... More

We stayed at the Far View for one night simply because we wanted to be in the park for an early morning tour and had much more we wanted to see before leaving. It was great spending the night not "plugged in" for a day. Our family had a front row seat for an amazing thunder and lightning storm as... More

The rooms had been refurbished the winter prior and ours was comfortable with simple wood floors. There was no safe in the room. It did have a small balcony with chairs, a small refrigerator with freezer useful for freezing your cold packs and it was on the upper floor with a good view to the south. In fact, we saw... More

There is no other option for staying in (or near) the park and the drive to the sites can be over an hour long (or more) from the park entrance. The rooms are VERY comfortable. Views CANNOT be beat. Very relaxing atmosphere all in all. No tv which was a plus in my book on this trip. Housekeeping staff very... More

Sadly we stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during our recent trip, it was the only disappointment in the 3000 mile journey. We were allocated a room with a view of a tree,a parking lot and the back of the other rooms - far from a far view which was very disappointing. I contacted the room and was told... More

We stayed one night at the lodge. Perfect location for visiting the park. We didn't take any tours but were able to see quite a lot on our own. We stayed on a lower level floor. Some noise from upstairs. The room was clean and functional. Views were beautiful. Food at restaurant was surprisingly good. Staff excellent.

We stayed here on our way to move our daughter to Arizona. We wanted to be in the Park to maximize our day. We especially wanted to get tickets for the Cliff Palace and Balcony House. The location is ideal and perfect. The rooms are basic and comfortable. We would definitely come back. It's quiet and the views are wonderful.
