Impulsively I hitched a ride down from Amman to Petra with three other backpackers in a taxi and luckily for me it's very quiet in winter and I had no problem finding a room at the Rocky Mountain.
Perched high on the hill overlooking Petra, it isnt within walking distance to the city centre or the park, but they offer free shuttle rides which is a big plus. All the guys in reception were very friendly and helpful, and offered help youself tea and coffee 24/7.
For such a low price per night the small rooms were really clean, like a good three star hotel, and our room had a great view over the valley, if it hadn't been raining. One of the more comfortable beds I enjoyed on my trip, and even used the internet for free, not a given in more expensive hotels.
Check out the seven wonders bedouin camp in Petra, also run by the same people and also very good.
