Absolutely amazing! Highlight of our trip
We stayed here for our ten year anniversary and splurged on a premium view king suite. We were actually allowed to check in early before our afternoon tour, which was so nice. Everyone who worked at the front desk was so kind and accommodating. We had the last room on the second floor, and our suite was huge! King bed, full dining table, sofa, large TV, HUGE bathroom, three windows, and our balcony was almost three times the size of other balconies. And that VIEW! Out of this world amazing.
We spent all night sitting out watching the changing colors of the valley, then watched a lightning storm over the valley after dark and were up for sunrise the next morning which was nothing short of magical. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel and this amazing valley!
Yes, the View Hotel restaurant was still closed as of 7.23, which was disappointing but we had a good meal at Goulding's down the road. The gift shop at The View was open and they give you 10% off plus we also received $20 off any craft item in the store, which I thought was nice.
Now that tours are running again, definitely book a backcountry tour of MV. I personally recommend Navajo Spirit and will write a separate review of our amazing tour with them.

Great view, nice rooms, but….
If this review were just based on the view from the rear balcony and the cleanliness of the rooms, it would be a 5/5. However:
# The extra price for a premium view room
Is ridiculous. We had both a premium room and a non premium, and the view is nearly identical. Save your money.
# I recognize that they are still
Opening from COVId, but not having the restaurant open is a major draw back. The breakfast bag is barely edible. Have to drive 6 miles to Goulding’s for a meal. They do show a movie at night, but there is nothing to do here in the morning or evening, especially since the Wildcat Trail is still closed.
# They should Give more info on the Valley - it is now open to visitors, but they should tell you to book a tour, you cannot drive your own vehicle, etc.

Every Room has a Perfect View
We enjoyed spending the night here. We had one problem when we checked in. The refrigerator in our first room had a horrible odor when you open it. Went down to the front desk and the young lady gave us another room. She even knock off 10 percent off the bill. All rooms have a great view. We stayed on the bottom floor and the night sky was very dark. At night, they played a John Wayne movie. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It decor was Native American style. You cannot go wrong staying here.

This was one of the coolest experiences for our family. We stayed in the Cabins and it was simply one of the most amazing views we have ever experienced. The location is simply spectacular. We sat out on the front porch of our cabin and enjoyed a beautiful sunset and sunrise that we will never forget. The cabins were clean and comfortable. The hotel staff were wonderful to deal with and incredibly friendly.

Kind of Pricy, But Worth It
This was our second trip to Monument Valley. The last time we stayed at Gouldings which was very nice, but this time we decided to splurge a little bit.
The extra money we spent provided priceless views from our room’s balcony. We looked straight out at the Left and Right Mittens. Sunset was spectacular!
The hotel staff was very nice, the hotel was really clean and our room was spotless. We stayed in the hotel itself, but they also have individual cabins near the hotel. I think next time we’ll try one of of lower level cabins. The cabins all have decks with chairs overlooking the valley.
Some things were closed due to Covid restrictions, but no big deal.
