I stayed at Valley Moon with my wife just a few nights back. The stay was littered with positives and negatives.

First, the positives:

- Mohammed, the owner, was very nice and friendly. After what had been a very trying day travelling from Damascus to Wadi Musa, we'd just about had enough. The locals at Wadi Musa had been extremely unhelpful towards us when we were trying to glean information on how to get back to Amman the next afternoon. Mohammed was able to organise a service taxi for us for 35JD, which was about 1/2 of all the other quotes we'd been given.
- The other staff are friendly, although speak little English
- They have internet (1JD/hr) which many of the places we stayed in Syria/Jordan didn't.
- The location is very handy (10min walk) to the entrance of Petra - although most other hotels offer free transfers to/from Petra. The walk uphill to the hotel after a day in Petra does take it out of you though.

Now the negatives:
- The room we stayed in was dirty. The sheets felt unclean, and looked worse - there were stains of some description (possibly blood? or pen - hopefully!) on them. The pillow cases also felt dirty, so we slept with the towels we were given over the pillows - the towels appeared to be clean.
- The fridge had leaked all over the floor, leaving a massive wet patch, and in turn causing a bit of a smell.
- There was no hot water.
- We were charged 30JD for one night, whilst another person we met paid only 11JD for his room - while discrepancies no doubt are regular and can come down to your negotiation ability, we're quite sure this one is because the two guys we paid for a lift from Amman to Wadi Musa we given a cut for bringing us to the hotel. The room definitely wasn't worth 30JD.
- We'd asked for breakfast to be ready at 6am so we could get going early and to Petra first thing, but when we awoke there was no breakfast, only staff sleeping on the sofas in the reception.

It pains me to give the hotel a 'poor' rating, as Mohammed was very helpful and I very much appreciate him getting us a driver, however the hotel itself really needs work done.

After one night in Rose City Hotel (see other review) up the road checked into this one for three nights. At first all seemed OK. Owner appeared friendly and helpful. I had a nice single room on first floor with view down towards Petra. However this was a mixed blessing as there was a lot of traffic noise from the road below as well as the inevitable wake up call to prayer at 0400, although you would get this wherever you were in Wadi. Comfortable bed and ensuite bathroom. First night was fine. However on second day there, having spent long tiring day in Petra, I returned to find that radiator had leaked badly onto carpet (the thing was hanging off the wall anyway) and no heat coming from it. Then had freezing cold shower. Mentioned this to owner who said that he hadn’t put heating or water on as I was the only guest and it was too expensive !!! Then he attacked radiator with an adjustable spanner to no avail as valves were so badly corroded. He did at least offer me another room for the other two nights stay which was better – a twin for the same price. One slight advantage to location is that it is the closest hotel in Wadi to Petra – believe me those you will appreciate those few less metres after slogging up the hill at the end of the day !!

See review on Rose City Hotel for comments on Wadi and Petra.

ali1221, Owner at Moon Valley Hotel, responded to this review, December 13, 2009
In response to this review, Moon Valley Hotel, under the foresight of new management, has newly and fully renovated its whole facilities. This includes new beds, refurnished rooms, and of course new radiators. With this in mind, and our close proximity to the gates of Petra, we hope you will find our hotel quite accommodation.
