Please note that the lodge works as a covid isolation center. I was not informed about this when I reserved the room or upon checking. I reserved a king room and got a dark cold and dusty queen size bedroom. The rooms need some renovation. Also note the canyon is closed including view points. No good food options, due to covid restaurant take out is not so good.

Only indigenous people can run the ground tour over the park; I took the opportunity to stay with Thunderbird for 2 nights and joined the tour arranged by the lodge. The check-in was smooth, the room was clean, and the amenities were all there (a mini-refrigerator, microwave, clean and comfortable bathtub)

Convenient and safe

We stayed one night while visiting and touring Canyon De Chelly. The room was spacious and comfortable. The furnishings and amenities are more functional than impressive but certainly commensurate with price. The mouth of the canyon is right there as are the roads with view points to the canyon. The adjacent restaurant was not bad. We had meals with blue corn pancakes, fry bread, green chile stew, etc. that aren't generally available outside the area. Unrelated to the hotel: I'd say that a guided tour of the canyon to be 5x more useful than driving around the rim only.

Pleasant enough room. Had to give the restaurant a miss. Ordered the burger but said they had run out but accepted the same of order from a local. Went to the local Denny's for evening meal. Enjoyed it enough to return for breakfast!

Immerse yourself in the Canyon experience!

This hotel is a shady oasis deep in the Canyon de Chelly. The staff is incredible - so warm and welcoming! We also did their tour, ate at the cafeteria and shopped at the trading post. We felt completely embraced by the community. I cannot recommend more highly.
