Far View Lodge
Far View Lodge in Mesa Verde National Park provides lodging in the heart of the park. Be sure to reserve a deluxe kiva room for the best views. All of the rooms have a small balcony. The only negative was noise from adjacent rooms and the wind howling over the roof one night. Overall, would recommend staying in this amazing National Park

The view from our room was amazing! Beautiful vistas as far as the eye could see. Restaurant was excellent. Sunset view was spectacular. Private balcony was a plus. We watched a wild mustang graze just outside our balcony. Breathtaking!

Beautiful Park - Subpar hotel
We looked forward to our Mesa Verde trip for weeks. Our first trip to the park was 30 years ago and we expected the same great experience. Upon checking in, Linda at the front desk was quite cold and distant. Not welcoming at all. In fact, that was her attitude every time we dealt with her. The view from the lodge rooms (we had a 'deluxe') looking over the park is gorgeous. The bed was comfortable and the shower although very small and dark, was ok. However, the hot water handle on the sink came off and we had to replace it and hold it in place any time we needed the hot water. There was a coffee maker but only decaf coffee. When we asked Linda for regular coffee, we got a curt, "We're out." On our last night, we went up to what we had been told was the only restaurant that did not require reservations. Lo and behold, and unbeknownst to the hotel guests, that restaurant decided to close the previous night leaving the lobby full of families, many with children, being told they had to wait until 8:00 or later to eat in the 'reservations only' restaurant. Or, drive the 45 minutes one way to Cortez.
The park was beautiful and thankfully, we had some snacks with us, but unfortunately, the Far View Lodge left much to be desired and was not welcoming at all. We were actually embarrassed for the number of out of state and foreign guests visiting.

What is that scratching??
Scheduled 2 days at Farview, but only stayed 1. That should tell you a lot. Still trying to figure out what the scratching/gnawing at 11:15 at night on October 9 underneath the shower was. Phone in room, not connected, but there was an iron and ironing board! lol. Manager at Front Desk Dana needs to take a class on customer service. So many people complaining. Mesa Verde is such a beautiful National Park. It would be great to stay in the park but at the $195 a nite for these type of accommodations, just not worth it.

Beautiful night sy
Rooms were comfortable but the walls are thin. The dinners at the Metate Dining room were good but the breakfast and lunch options at the Terrace were horrible-they ran out of milk one morning, English muffins another and the oatmeal was lukewarm and lumpy. Finally, they used way to much plastic and there were not good options for recycling tableware.
