Reviewed 6 July 2017

We stayed one night in Wadi Musa at Rocky mountain hotel before setting off to explore Petra. The owner and staff were welcoming and gave us good suggestions about groceries, schedule/tips for Petra, etc. Check-in and check-out were easy and the price was very affordable compared to other places in the area and jordan in general. We like the simple, rustic feeling of the hotel. Our room was very basic, but it suited us well and the heat worked relatively well throughout the night. The highlight of our stay here was the breakfast area on the top floor of the hotel. The view from there is absolutely incredible and we spent the entire breakfast looking out the window over wadi musa. We liked the the breakfast area was decorated in typical bedouin style as well. The hotel is located at the top of wadi musa, so it gives a good vantage point. The breakfast offered was a jordanian style breakfast with bread, eggs, labneh, jams, olive oil, olives, tea, etc. and it served us well for our long day ahead in Petra. I would definitely recommend staying here for budget travelers looking for a simple place as their base in Wadi Musa.

Room Tip: be sure to pay for heat if you're there in the winter. it gets cold at night!

Rocky Mountain Hotel is a clean and comfortable hotel with spectacular views overlooking Petra and Wadi Musa. Jane and all the staff could not do enough for us, check in was easy and packed lunches were prepared for our day visit to Petra. The location of the hotel is just a short taxi ride down the hill to Petra, perfect!
The managers of the hotel, also run the Seven Wonders Bedouin Camp. We dropped by for a visit one evening and were welcomed with Arabic tea and traditional food after a long day of hiking.
Both the hotel and camp are run extremely well and make your Petra experience even more personal.
I would highly recommend this charming hotel to anyone visiting Petra, great value and the warmest of welcomes.

Room Tip: Room with a mountain view, truly worth it!!

We arrived at 10.00 pm, check in was quick/easy, we were hungry but the kitchen was closed, no problem they opened it and served a delicious chicken/ rice and salad dish,
Great local hotel and very friendly and attentive owners.

After 10 hours walked at Petra, I drove a short distance uphill through busy traffic of Wadi Musa to check in at the Rocky Mountain hotel (parking was available on street in front of the hotel). The hotel was well designed, especially the roof top bar and restaurant, and its team was helpful. Beside the gorgeous panoramic view of Petra and Wadi Musa, my room was equipped with a large comfy bed, wifi, air-conditioned and hot shower (great for healing feet / muscle pain cuz by all day hiking under strong sunlight). I enjoyed having tea after dinner and breakfast at the balcony where I could observe the whole Wadi Musa city and Petra. Such a great place to stay and relax after Petra visit.

Rocky Mountain is a charming hotel with the most spectacular view from the top terrace (overlooking the town Wadi Musa and the mountains of Petra) - admiring the sunsets every day I've been there was definitely one of the highlights of my stay in Jordan!
The whole staff with the owner Jane at the front is extremely friendly and professional at the same time. The rooms are immaculately clean and the breakfast they serve is tasty and filling (delicious omlettes!) Highly recommended!
