“Convenient and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Nothing fancy, but a great place to use for your home base when exploring Canyon De Chelly. Restaurant is nothing special but adequate. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Outdoor pool was inviting on cool mornings, but we were too busy to test it.

Stray dogs everywhere, and other animals (horses, cows, etc) but that's the region in general and nothing to do with the hotel.

The room by the pool was spacious, the pool was excellent.The breakfast was copious and quite good and fresh for a buffet. The evening meal was very acceptable. Service was cheerful and helpful. No atm. Had to go for that to Thunderbird. Jeep trip to the canyon de chelly easily arranged from the hotel car park.

During a 4 week holiday in the USA this was our 2nd best hotel (as opposed to B&Bs). The room was bright & comfortable with patio doors out to the pool. Cheerful corridors instead of the usual hotel brown & beige.
We had an excellent light lunch of really delicious soups & good, cooked to order breakfasts. Dinner was not as good but generally we were pleased. The coach trips made the restaurant very crowded but, as they seemed to dine early, we were able to get a table after they'd finished.
The hotel is a short drive from Canyon de Chelly.

Room Tip: Ask to be on the ground floor next to the pool.

Basic, but clean and just a half mile drive to Canyon de Chelly.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Canyon de Chelly in October 2012 for two nights. Hotels in Chinle, AZ are limited, but overall, the Holiday Inn was a good experience. My biggest complaints were that the beds were very uncomfortable (I would wake up with a sore back every morning), and the shower head was way too low. It was about at the height of my chin. I’m 5’9” tall and I had to strain my neck just to wash my hair. It was even worse for my 6’2” husband. But the rooms were very clean, check-in was easy and pleasant, and the hotel had a decent and reasonably priced restaurant (important since restaurant options are also limited in Chinle).

For the other reviewers who have negative reviews of the restaurant, I would just like to say that I think they need to manage their expectations. This is Chinle, AZ and not a foodie haven like New York or Chicago. As of the time I’m writing this, Burger King is the 5th top rated restaurant in Chinle. So, taking that into account, the restaurant (which we ate at for two dinners and two breakfasts) was perfectly fine. The biggest plus was the location. It was just 0.5 miles to the Canyon de Chelly visitor’s center.

Room Tip: I don't think this hotel had an elevator. So if you have mobility issues, make sure you request...

The room is basic, standard Holiday Inn fare and I had a "poolside" twin double. Room 107 is in the ground floor and on the same side of the building as the pool ;). AC was noisey but not really needed while I was there. Location is out of town by a couple of miles.

Based on the TA reviews, we weren't expecting this hotel to be much more than average. However, in our two week holiday, this was one of the best rooms we had. The bed was large and very comfy, the room spacious and spotless. The bathroom a good size. All in all, a really nice hotel, which is a relief after driving through Chinle, which is really not up to very much. However, the location in terms of Canyon de Chelly is as good as it gets. One negative comment was the restaurant in the hotel which you're kind of obliged to use given there's not a lot of other choice. We both had the steak, it wasn't well cooked, was pretty small and the accompanying chips were rubbish. Given that it was the most expensive thing on the menu, it really was poor value for money. My advice, don't go for the steak.

What a pleasant place it is. We stayed there years ago and are pleased that it is still the same convenient hotel. Unfortunately this time very noisy from foot traffic overhead. The restaurant was fine, the airconditioning way too low in the corner were we were sitting. The evening meal took a long time to be delivered, the breakfast very prompt.

But--- don't change the the huge-sized beds every day and don't replace all towels though we hung them up. It seems that in the desert-like environment you should not waste water like that. PLEASE change your policy and be more green-oriented
