The View features a wonderful location and fantastic view from the room, but the hotel itself is not the best. That said, this is a great place to stay when visiting Monument Valley. Our room had balcony with a fantastic view. The bathroom was large. The internet speed was 10.1 Mbps download, 1.20 Mbps upload, and 60 ms latency. The internet would drop out. The morning we were leaving the power went out. This left the bathroom completely dark. Not a good time to be in the shower. So the elevators were also not working. The electricity came back on about a half hour later. The View has easy access to Monument Valley Drive and also has an easy 2 mile trail from the hotel. Note that there is a 25 car limit to Monument Valley Drive, so staying at the View gave us a nice head start in the morning. When we visited the onsite restaurant was closed, I recommend checking with the hotel if visiting off season to make sure it will be open. I would recommend staying here for the view and easy access to Monument Valley. However, be prepared for a less than perfect hotel.

07:44 7 The View Hotel Stayed a couple of nights in a "StarRoom" - nice to be at top but little usp re be able to see the stars. Pretty pricey room and food in the Dining Room- but this is the place to stay so worth the cost. The room and bathroom were fine. with coffee machine, microwave, fridge & TV. All very clean and well presented. Staff all very friendly and service was fine. Complimentary breakfast was plentiful with pancakes, boiled eggs, porridge as well as lots of bagels - as well as a range of cereals, bread and buns. Did the bumpy road loop which is well worth it (some cars struggled a bit getting back up at the end as is the walking trail (hot, windy & sandy) Ordered a Linda meal 1 night - wasted an hour waiting for it to turn up, however, the chicken burrito was delicious

Chose to stay here one night when visiting Monument Valley, had a star view room on the third floor to take advantage of the magnificent view down the valley and hopefully see the stars (you need a clear night). Accommodation is fine usual chain type hotel room, beds comfortable breakfast included.

Let's be clear. You have limited options. The view is a solid 5. Service/Room 3-4 at best. The contentental breakfast was sad. You had a choice between pancakes or oatmeal BUT you aren't there for the breakfast. The view trumps everything else.

What a spectacular location! This was a unique and beautiful stay. I stayed in one of the cabins: they’re clean, beautiful, and had everything I needed for one night. I ordered dinner from Linda’s Fry Bread Stand (you can get a menu and a phone number to call for Linda’s once a day dinner delivery) and enjoyed a Navajo taco while taking in the view from my porch. This hotel is truly remote, making for an amazing view of the stars at night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This was definitely out of the way, but very much worth the drive. A few things I wondered about (or would have found useful) before booking/arriving: 1) I wondered if I’d have cell service on the drive here, or at the hotel. I was nervous because of the long, remote drive. I have AT&T and was pleased to find that I had cell service for most of the drive, and from the hotel. 2) There are very limited food options in this area. If you don’t want to eat at the hotel restaurant, you can order food from Linda’s Frybread Stand by calling the number provided at the front desk. However, the order cutoff is 6pm sharp: I arrived at 5:45, so I barely made it. If I had known, I probably would have contacted the hotel for a phone # and menu ahead of time to ensure I got my order in by 6. 3) The cabins are beautiful and equipped with both AC and heat. However, the night I was there it was VERY windy (25-35mph with 55mph gusts): so windy it shook the cabin all night. I never felt unsafe, but I’m a light sleeper, so it was a long night. This is not The View’s fault at all, obviously, but if you’re a light sleeper it might be good to consider a room in the main hotel.

There is no doubt that the view from the View Hotel is unmatched and when we needed a late check out because our tour was running late, they were accommodating. However, be aware that the food options for the hotel & area in general, are EXTREMELY limited and what is available is below average.

We stayed here in May 2022 and experienced the worst attitude to a guest I have seen in a hotel anywhere in the world. We were booked to stay for two nights through Trailfinders ( UK’s largest independent travel agent). On the afternoon of our second day a woman, who claimed to be the hotel manager, arrived at our door with no prior warning flanked by two security guards, to say that we were only booked for one night and had to vacate the room immediately. It is clear from subsequent correspondence with the hotel that the intention, had we not been in the room, was to remove all our belongings. I showed the “manager” our booking on my phone which clearly stated we were booked for two nights but she was insistent that this was irrelevant as the booking was made by a “third party” (hardly an unusual situation in the industry) and that we needed to vacate the room immediately. When we asked where we were supposed to go, she said that that wasn’t her problem. After a protracted discussion she agreed to let me try and contact Trailfinders myself (no offer that she might so so). About 15 minutes later while I was still on the phone, she returned to say that we were in fact booked for two nights and that we could stay. No apology was offered despite us repeatedly asking her for one. To be clear this is a large hotel in an iconic location which charges over $200 per night. It is not one star inner city motel which charges by the hour. It must receive guests from all over the world, most booked through third party agents. So when a guest appears be overstaying do you, as a hotelier, think “There has clearly been a mix up here somewhere. What can we do to rectify the situation and help the guest “ Or, as in this case “The client is deliberately trying to stay in the room without paying. Let’s go to the room immediately with two security guards , without speaking to them first, and throw them out. When the guest explains that a mistake has been made, ignore them and assume that the they are lying” Our experience suggest an appalling underlying culture in the hotel which views its customers not as guests to be helped, but as an inconvenience in the process of making money. Despite its fantastic location I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. By all means go to Monument Valley. It is amazing. But don’t stay at the View Hotel

The ladies at the check in counter are the rudest and most unprofessional of any I have dealt with in all my years of travel - and I traveled 75 to100 nites per year while I was working. After getting that rude introduction to the View motel, the rooms were excellent. If you are visiting Monument Valley you really should treat yourself to the view from the rooms. The Valley changes with the shifting lights and pictures don’t do it justice. Additionally since there are no lights in the Valley at night - the stars are the “Star” of the evening. Be aware that there is a $9 pp entrance fee to get into the Navajo Nation. Also there is no alcohol allowed in the Valley. I saw visitors drinking wine on their balconies, so I don’t think the will be checking your luggage for contraband, as long as you are discreet and keep it in your room. Dinner in the restaurant is somewhat limited , mainly burgers and chicken sandwiches. My main complaint about the restaurant is that it seemed they didn’t like AC, as the room temp was about 80 degrees. A continental breakfast is included with the room. The dining room isn’t open for lunch but the gift shop has pre packaged sandwiches. Masks are required indoors.

Location, location, location… We stayed in Premium View Cabin 27, and the view from the terrace, and even your bed, is amazing. Our cabin had not been cleaned when we got there, the trash and dirty linen were still in there when we checked in, and they did not deal with that either efficiently or politely but you do not go there for the service, you go for the view. We did the walk around the Mitten in the morning and enjoyed both a spectacular sunset and sunrise and I have to be strict here: do not close blinds for the night! There is complete privacy towards the Valley, and the starry sky and the rising sun will be worth the trip alone. Our last visit to Monument Valley was during the day and spending the night made it a brand new and unforgettable experience.

Possibly the world's most aptly named hotel. Built to privide each room with a private view of one of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. However, despite the exclusive nature of the location this is not a luxury hotel. The Navajo have decided that their reservation must be dry, so there is no cocktail lounge from which to watch the setting sun. The restaurant hours are restricted and the menu is limited. Away from the hotel and visitors' centre there are few facilities and there is only one trail you are allowed to walk without an official guide. But then again, there is the view and that is enough.
