You can't beat the views, especially sunrise and sunset. The Metate Room has pretty good food, but it's priced a little high for the quality plus it's totally staffed with kids. The bed was great in the room but I saw a few bugs. Also the soap dispensers had no soap and no bars to be found. I woke up to brew my precious in room coffee and the package was in the basket but empty.

We stayed here with a tour and had a Kiva Room. Furnishings were attractive if not all that practical. Our room was small, especially the bathroom, but the location (the only place to stay in the park) was worth the trade off for us. Wi-fi worked in our room, but the heater didn't seem to be calibrated that well (the display read 74 regardless of what the actual temperature in the room was--and it was pretty cold one night. Once turned on, it warmed up the room quickly, though). Groups of rooms are set into the hillside, so the quality of the view varies, as does the length of the walk from the lodge; if that matters, ask exactly where you'll be.

Room tip: Best (least obstructed) views seem to be in the units nearest the lodge with no blocks of rooms below them on the hill. Blocks of rooms are scattered all over the hillside, looking in different directions. Some are more than a 5-minute walk from the Lodge. There doesn't seem to be an online map of the property, so you should make whatever preferences you have about location known when you book and then hope for some flexibility when you arrive.

This is the only non camping choice in the park. It has as the name implies an incredible view. The restaurant was superb. For the price the rooms are pretty basic. Our king bed moved and squeaked with every movement even a deep breath. There was a bright light right outside the door and a glass transom over the door meaning it was very bright in the room all night. The sink cabinet was unfinished plywood. They need water saving shower heads. I guess when the NPS gives you a monopoly you can get away with it. For all that it is a unique place and there are no alternatives.

Room tip: My wife and I would have slept better in the room with two queens since the king bed was so bad.

You have to travel deep into the Mesa Verde National Park to get to the Far View Lodge but it is worth it. It puts you right in place to explore the ancient Pueblo past. we had a nice, but somewhat dated cabin (they are all the same) with a breathtaking view of the Soda Canyon.
Staying at an in the park facility has a disadvantage that it makes you hostage to the food service which it typically not very good and overpriced.

Room tip: Make sure you order the cabin to accommodate the number of people in your party. All cabins have great unobstructed views.

Ok, so we were prepared thanks to other reviews on trip advisor, but nothing could have prepared us for the family of 4 sharing the wall of our Kiva room. We heard every movement, bump, footstep, tap turning on and off and the high pitched kids voices all night so it was noise canceling headphones to the rescue. We slept ok. Nice to have duvets and a good heater. The room is actually reasonably luxurious and spacious although the bathroom is tiny, but for a national park it's very good. Better still is that the internet was incredibly fast and reliable. Again, in a national park, that's amazing. Sadly for $170 a night location convenience isn't enough to make up for the feeling that you're sharing a dorm room. Beware the fridges too, they froze our water bottles! A note re service too, I requested a room at the end of the rows thanks to advice from other travellers. When we were given our room and it wasn't on an end I queried it and said I'd pre requested an end room. The attendant then read out my notes which had been completely ignored and agreed that I had made that request 6 months earlier but after a quick look he could do nothing about it. Pretty poor.
