“Who let the dogs out ??”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2010

A comfortable, clean hotel very close to the canyon aand visitor centre, stayed here 2 nights on a group photography holiday. A bit of a wait to check in, we were "entertained" by a group of about 7 dogs of varying shapes and sizes - all hoping we'd feed them !! If you stay here be very careful not to leave an exterior door ajar .... good restaurant with wide selection and very good value (I recommend the Black Bean soup), breakfast not complementary but again good value. Be sure to be in early if you're in a hurry as service isn't too fast. A very nice gift shop next to the restaurant with a wide selection of souvenirs and local jewellery at pretty reasonable prices.

The location, just outside the Canyon de Chelly visitor center was perfect for us. The free wireless internet was a huge advantage and the price just right. We were in a hurry and the restaurant offered to make us breakfast "to go" which was nice. The rooms were quite comfy and met our needs very well. The nice touch was that they let us check out at 2pm (after we came back from a tour of Canyon de Chelly) since I was a Priority Club member and there wasn't a big crowd.

From the website, I thought this would be a real dump. It was lovely! The staff was wonderful - we arrived right as the restaurant was about to close, but our server was so friendly and treated us like royalty. The food was good, the bed was the most comfortable I've slept in for a long time. You can't beat the location - well, maybe it loses points for being in Arizona (boo SB1070). But the Canyon de Chelly is GORGEOUS! We went after business and enjoyed it at sunset. Even the businesses we dealt with downtown had very, very friendly staff.

We loved staying at this hotel on our recent trip to Canyon de Chelly. It has the best restaurant in (this very small) town, and is the jumping off spot for almost all the tours (you need a Navajo guide to enter the canyon, so a tour is a must!). The service was a bit distant...but my understanding is that it may be to cultural differences, so it wasn't a problem. We will stay here again.

Arrived early at 1 pm - no room available till 3. Ok ,we said we,ll spend 2 hrs by the pool.No can do,they said as had to be registered guest. We ignored that and spent time by the pool with our own towels. Room not available at 3 ,come back at3.30. Went back at 3.25 and told to go to back of queue. Created fuss and got a room - no fridge.As it is in an Indian reservation we had brought our own beer and wine and now had nowhere to cool it.Most expensive hotel we stayed in and probably the worst.

The breakfast is awful. If you choose from the a la carte menu, the toast, the English muffin, and the sunny-side-up egg will come out cold. Not even lukewarm, but cold. If you choose the buffet breakfast, scrambled eggs and oatmeal are cold. The oranges are soft and squishy to the touch. Because they are rotted.

Beware of the many stray dogs and one stray cat roaming on the property. They make the environment very unpleasant.

The dial pad on the phone is only covered with a piece of paper. I cannot believe a cheap phone like that is not even replaced.
