“I wish I'd stayed longer....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

A lovely room and fantastic bathroom. All rooms overlook the Mittens and you can watch cars driving along the native trail from the balcony. Fabulous view of millions of stars at night even though we didn't have a top floor room. Apart from the bedroom balcony there is also a viewing point near the restaurant, which is good for watching the sun set. There is also a lovely quiet sitting area with native American furnishings/decorations downstairs. It may just be because of the view and surroundings but there is a wonderful sense of serenity and peace there.
When we ate in the restaurant, the food was good and very filling. Recommend trying some of the Navajo dishes.Only other thing to note is that the business side of the the hotel, for parking etc, is rather downbeat and not at all representative of the inside, or the other side of the hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and you don't need a top floor room to see the stars.

We 'stumbled' upon The View while exploring Monument Valley. What a find! If you Google The View you will find fabulous photos which are accurate. It is a first class hotel, being operated by Navaho people, to a very high standard. But it is the design of the hotel and the overall decor that truly delight. Every room has a balcony that overlooks Monument Valley which is one of nature's treasures. Everything one could want within the hotel room was available, including a small fridge and microwave. We had a delightful meal at the restaurant, enjoying the local specialties such as blue corn fry bread and green chile stew. The complimentary breakfast was quite a simple affair. The gift shop has a wonderful selection of native art along with basic items. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, which speaks well of the administrative training and supervision, which is the key to maintaining a quality establishment. The rates are approx. $200 per night in high season (Mar-Oct) but half that during off season. A great treat, especially for nature lovers.

Room Tip: All the rooms have "THE VIEW". One pays a bit more for the premium room, but we were on th...

Spent my birthday evening in this fabulous hotel in monument valley. The view of the stars was amazing. We even had a John Wayne movie projected onto the hotel wall in the evening. Very atmospheric. Loved it.

Since the first time I ate at The View was at night, I was looking forward to enjoying the scenery at lunch. We were very disappointed to find that the seating by the windows was closed off! Our food was served in styrofoam take-out containers and no one was clearing the tables or emptying the garbage.
Our meals tasted fine and the staff were friendly and helpful. The management, however, is making some poor decisions.

We had a recently well refurbished room on the 2nd floor and the views were outstanding. I don't really think it really matters which room you have as they all have stunning views. The only thing that stops this hotel being World class is the really poor food served in the restaurant. Both our meals on the first night were dreadfull. I would still stay at this hotel as it is fabulously located, has great rooms, unbeatable views and nice staff. Just sort out the quality of the food.

Room Tip: As long as your room faces the valley I would not worry about locating on the dearer upper floors.

Yes agree with everyone about the hotel . However what was annoying is that you can hear conversation/ Tv from adjacent rooms. If you are on the ground floor you can hear guests walking around and even having a show from above. Need to bear this in mind but what an experience.

Room Tip: Higher floors will have less noise interference

I can only say this is one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. My wife and I stayed in this hotel for two nights and loved the peacefulness of the place. The magnitude of the beauty you can see from your own room balcony is something difficult to forget and to describe. One must stay there to really appreciate.
