Lodge inside the Mesa Verde Nat'l Park is very convenient and comfortable for staying inside Mesa Verde. It has a nice restaurant and a cafeteria style restaurant for eating and dining. The lodge is roughly in the mid section of park so driving is required to get you to all sites of the park. It has a spectacular view of... More

Far View Lodge, on the mesa top far inside the boundaries of Mesa Verde National Park, is note worthy for its location and view, as most other reviewers have noted. Though there are many contemporary chain hotels in Cortez, CO west of the Park entrance, being inside the Park best situates you to explore all of the ancient pueblo ruins... More

The Far View Lodge is the only option staying in the park other than camping. It is quite a long drive into the park so it makes life easier to get to the park before the crowds hit and the views from many of the rooms are incredible. The Deluxe Kiva room we stayed in was a little on the... More

I have visited 30 national parks thus far, so I have a good basis for comparison. The rooms were in line with a typical national park lodge, clean and comfortable but without much in the way of amenities. For the National Park traveler, this is not only expected but desired. The Metate restaurant was quite good, a step up from... More

Not as plush as some places, but quite appropriate for the setting. Fortunately the sink is out side the bath as the last time we saw such a small, inconvenient bath we were in a low priced cruise ship room. That said, this is just the best way to truly experience Mesa Verde. The view was amazing (deluxe Kiva worth... More

Our room was an updated southwestern style, very clean and with a great view. The Metate Restaurant was walking distance for dinner and breakfast. Excellent service and good food. I was quite happy with the experience.

Was looking forward to staying here due to proximity to sites in the park. Rooms were ok, but after dinner we got a knock on the door that we had to move to another building due to water problems. Had to repack, load up the car again and move, this time in the dark and the rain. Replacement room had... More

Dated, small, and uncomfortable rooms. The view is great though that is if you get the right room and you'll need that view because there's no T.V. and the wifi is spotty. Their restaurant Metate room is just blatantly inexcusable though high prices, poor service and mediocre food at best. If all you need is location this is your place.

We're so glad we stayed up on the mesa in the park, so that we could maximize our time visiting the park rather than driving up and down the mesa. Small but clean room was very satisfactory, after being moved from our first room which had one broken and one missing shade.

Beautiful scenery every where you look. Mountain air and Native American ruins. Nice hot shower. Deer were just feet from our balcony. The breakfast buffet was not attended to very well. But off the menu eggs florentine my daughter ordered were great. The price was really a bargain. Bathe beds were very comfortable.
