“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Very nice hotel on the Navajo Reservation. The person at check in said it had been updated recently. The room was clean, decorated very nicely and large. The bathroom was great. The lobby had a good assortment of books on the area. The separate restaurant had good service and food. We were even able to greet Teddy Draper, a Navajo Code Talker, at breakfast the next morning. We paid $130.00 including taxes which was less than the only other motel in town, a Holiday Inn that was $170.00. The drive and stop offs at Canyon de Chelly were awesome!

Granted - there are not many hotels in Chinle (3) but this BWI is just as good as any anywhere. The rooms were large with all the emenities and very clean. The hotel has exterior corridors but that made it very easy to load and unload our van. We were there on a plein air painting trip so we had lots of stuff. The staff was very helpful and answered any questions. The Junction Restaurant, on site, turned out to be a very good food with huge portions. The only "con" was the beds were hard as a brick but we were tired enough each nite it never bothered us.

There are only a few places to stay in Chinle and I am pleased that we chose the Best Western Canyon de Chelley. The stay was pleasant and comfortable and with the few choices in town, I was prepared for a run down motel, but I was pleasantly surprised. We had two adjacent rooms, always clean upon our return to the motel. Nothing to rave about, but why would I need to do so? This location gave us most everything that we needed. I would only suggest that they try to add a continental breakfast.

The standard of the beset western canyon de chelly was allright,and no real negative coments can be reported.
The airco,was not switched on,and no real explanation how to operate was found.
The check-in desk gave full details,after switching on quit noisy.
The location is close to the Canyon de Shelly.

We checked TripAdvisor before staying and chose this hotel because of the positive reviews. We were not disappointed. It was 4 pm when I arrived and I asked if we should go to Canyon de Chelly immediately, before checking in. They said, "Go...we'll hold your room...take the South rim, the light is perfect this time of day". They were right. When we got back several hours later, the check-in was smooth, and they went out of their way to get us a first floor room. Rooms were clean and attractive. Went to their nearby restaurant (I think different ownership, but on property) and had good Navajo stew, and back for breakfast and blue pancakes. Excellent!

I stayed in this hotel recently and it must be upgraded because it was alot better then the reviews before me would suggest

first of all it was just what i want from a hotel: clean rooms, nice swimming pool and sauna and good restaurant too

this hotel is clearly trying to inprove because it is working on a better fitness room

beside all of my previous pros of course their are cons. My biggest con is the fact that this hotels doesn't have any breakfast

but overall this is a very good restaurant with for me the most importent aspect is WIFI
