The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were well equipped and decorated. We paid extra to get a 'star view' room on the top floor, thinking it would be better for night photography. The view difference was minimal; not worth the extra $. We were also given a room at the far end of the hotel, about a 100 yard walk from the desk. Ask for a low number room on a lower floor. The walls were fairly thin, we got to listen to a neighbors TV when trying to sleep. They weren't cleaning the rooms every day; not a big deal, but it would have been helpful if we were told up front.

So glad we did this. We stayed in the cabins. A lifelong memory for us. Both the sunset and sunrise were humbling. We set our alarm and stayed in our pajamas and watched the sun come up from the porch. Very private, quiet. The reservation is still closed due to COVID. We went into Goulding for groceries. There was a microwave and refrigerator in the cabin.

The View ... it's the view!

We stayed one night at a premium view cabin at The View. Spectacular. We caught the end of sunset and then sunrise the next morning. There isn't a better view of Monument Valley. The cabins are small, but perfect for two of us. Not sure we'd had been comfortable with 2 kids in the bunks, maybe if they were young. Super clean, very safe, quite new. Everyone wears a mask. They were pleased when we presented our vaccine cards. The Valley Drive is closed due to COVID, but Gouldings provides a "beyond the park tour" which had a Navajo guide and took us spots we couldn't visit on our own. Beds were comfortable, towels plentiful. Toiletries fine, though wish they didn't use the tiny bottles. Not much in the "kitchen" which was in the bedroom/only room. Bring your own plates, cups and flatware if you intend to eat there. The breakfast was just ok; a packaged sweet roll, a cereal bar, and small red delicious apple, plus coffee. Still, well worth the price tag, we'd return and would recommend it. Magical place. Don't miss it.

The View Hotel only way to see Monument Valley

We had the good fortune of a recent stay at The View Hotel. The monuments endure these challenging times. The West was incapsulated by photos of Monument Valley, yet it is a hidden gem few rarely get to experience. We had looked forward to exploring this area, and with the reopening of the View, we finally had the chance to have our adventure. The hotel staff was friendly, competent, and well versed in Covid-19 protocol. The landscape could not disappoint; incredible views and stargazing. Although I don’t consider myself a morning person, we enjoyed sunrise immensely. We had our coffee in hand, watching the light move across the valley, highlighting the sandstone towers. It was as though we had stepped into another time, a surreal place. Due to stringent Covid restrictions by the Navajo Nation the park itself was closed, so we did not make the valley drive, yet we found plenty of sightseeing. It was a peaceful retreat; the room was cozy; the lodge architecture fit into the landscape and it was decorated with beautiful artwork. We found the history and Navajo culture quite fascinating. There’s tons of exploring to do in this rugged land, so buck up and get there, Pilgrim.

This time we stayed in the cabins - for the cabins I highly recommend the rimview - the first row of cabins on the rim because if you are in the 2nd row then those cabins will dominate your view. That said, staying anywhere on this fabulous property is worthwhile, even if it's a room in the hotel without a view (where I've also stayed as well as with a view). Personally I highly recommend staying at LEAST one if not two nights so that you can soak up the ambience and breathtaking views. Take the .7 mile mesa rim view short trail (same trail head as Lee Cly trail) on the northeast side of the hotel - no one seems to know about it. Or try the Wildcat trail between the cabins and hotel. We stayed this time in April 2021 before the main park (hiking, tours, restaurant) opened but it was fine because we had the place to ourselves.
