It's a little further off the main road, but the half-hour long drive lets you acclimate to the vast openness of the Navajo/Hopi atmosphere. Perhaps a Tony Hillerman novel on an outcrop would be even more to prepare you for slowing down to appreciate this old structure. The staff at the visitors center was delightful, the exhibits very informative, and the self-guided tour was quite interesting.
The pueblo itself is engineered to piggyback on a natural stone outcropping, resulting in an extremely interesting mix of natural stone with restored masonry. The ball field and kiva are a bonus that you don't get in some other Native American ruins.
And don't miss the blowhole! It is COOL.
