Like the name of the hotel says, what a view!! We recently stayed here for a night on a trip through Monument Valley and had a lovely visit. Our room was spacious and clean, and the beds very comfortable. The restaurant wasn’t open during our stay, which was a slight inconvenience, but we found a place down the road a ways. The view off the balcony into Monument Valley was worth it!

Don’t stay here

The hotel has a beautiful view as promised. This location is extremely isolated. Room was fine - for $390/night. No staff to assist. We talked to 3 staff members during our stay and none were particularly nice, helpful or accommodating. We checked in after a 5.5 hour drive and were told we have no restaurant maybe you can eat at a nearby restaurant or maybe you can drive 30 miles back where you came from to get food. (Lady next to me was freaking out with a kid with a medical condition who needed to eat. Employees were no help). Website has the restaurant menu posted. Reservation email says nothing about no restaurant. I called and emailed prior to arrival - to ask about a food allergy. No response. Next morning we went to get “breakfast” which was a small coffee, apple, prepackaged bun. Want water with your $390 dollar room? That will be extra. Checked out. Desk clerk: How was your stay? Me: Not great. Desk Clerk: Okay. Have a good day. No one there gives a crap. I would give Gouldings a try instead and see if you can find someone interesting in running a hotel.

I love this hotel!

This is a great hotel with unsurpassed views of Monument Valley. All rooms have a balcony with a view, particularly nice at sunrise. Third floor rooms are also good for dark sky stargazing. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Decor is outstanding. The trading post has high-quality native jewelry, ceramics, and rugs in addition to traditional tourist merchandise. When we were there, there was a 40% discount on native silver and turquoise jewelry, plus an additional 10% off for hotel guests. The only downside was that the hotel restaurant was closed due to the pandemic. The staff provided us with a menu for a nearby restaurant, plus gave out free breakfast bags in the morning with danish, fruit, granola, and a drink. I would definitely stay there again once the pandemic is over!

My BFF and I stayed here for three nights. The views of Monument Valley and the stars from our third floor room were magical, monumental, and memorable. The room had everything we needed. The nearby hikes were incredibly beautiful and worthwhile. Most of the tours begin at the hotel, making it quite convenient to enjoy. The trading post had exceptional jewelry. If I could make any suggestions it would be to open the hotel restaurant. The boxed breakfasts left a lot to be desired and coffee was limited. There is really only one "close" (ten minutes) restaurant option nearby at Goulding's and they often were not able to accommodate us due to the large crowds and bus tours. If you plan to stay here, and we highly recommend you do, do all your shopping, including alcohol and food, before you arrive.

The View Hotel was everything we expected and more. Our room was huge, with a wrap-around balcony and windows that provided 270 degree views. Clean, comfortable, quiet, and front-row seat to sunrise and sunset over the monuments and viewing of the star-filled sky at night. Mere steps to meet the tour guide in the morning for a 2 1/2 hour tour of the monuments and tour-only backroads with SPECIAL attractions like petroglyphs, unique monument formations, introduction to Navajo culture and tour of an authentic 'Hogan' while listening to history of the people. Our Tour Guide, Bernard (from Explore Monument Valley Tours 928-429-1959) mesmerized us as he played his Navajo Flute while we closed our eyes and drifted back in time, reclined inside a large sandstone monument. Highly recommend The View, and Bernard at Explore Monument Valley Tours--an experience you will not find elsewhere (and we saw many other tour groups herded like cattle without any special touches). As of October 2021 the Hotel Restaurant is not open, but they provide a to-go breakfast in the morning. For dinner we drove 30 minutes to the Swinging Steak in nearby Mexican Hat--one-of-a-kind steak dinner prepared over open grill with local juniper wood fire and 'swinging' grill. Check out the multitude of John Wayne memorabilia inside and take a photo with the Duke himself!
