A good place to stay in Chinless. A nice place to stay to see the canyon.

Room was very clean and the TV is a good size for the distance from the bed. Cafeteria on the property is convenient, but the burgers are overpriced.

It was very most Faboo. Loved everything about the property.

Great value for the money. The hotel is awesome and the closest you can get to the park (Canyon de Chelly). Very clean, great rooms and very friendly staff.

Very attentive staff, the handyman even helped fix a minor issue with my car. Room was spacious, clean, and attractive. The location is excellent, less tham a niuye to the Park roads.

Loved the solid, soundproof walls and great decor. The room furnishings and decoration were excellent, blending nicely with the setting and the culture. Even liked the 2 luggage holders. Gift shop well-stocked. Cafeteria food quite good with a lot of locals eating there also... .

Nice hotel, room is small but overall speaking clean with comfortable beds.

Glad I picked it. Close to the Canyon, which was my primary purpose for visiting the area. Staff was helpful and pleasant. The room had everything I needed.

An interesting and pleasant place to stay. Liked location next to canyon de Chelly. Easy to arrange tour of the canyon

Nice location outside of chinle. well kept with grass and trees. the restaurant had decent food but more like a school cafeteria. I would recommend eating in town.

Closest hotel to Canyon de Chelly. Navajo-owned and operated. Very clean. Pleasant location. Rooms have been renovated with coffee-maker, fridge & microwave. Restaurant on site (cafeteria-style) is adequate - nothing fancy, but very convenient. Very nice gift shop with Navajo jewelry and informative books, etc. Jeep tours of the canyon can be arranged at the hotel for pick-up morning and afternoon. Highly recommended if you are visiting Canyon de Chelly.

Liked staying in accommodation within National Monument and supporting Native American operators.

We only had a short stop in Chinle but the lodge and its cafeteria had a rustic charm that it the setting just inside the monument past the visitor center. Hope to return for a longer stay and do more than visit the south rim overlooks.

Great room! Easy check in/out. Loved the wood interior/decor.

This is a nice hotel next to canyon de chelly. On site restaurant available. Small trading post with good selection of items. The only dissapointing issue was the ac unit in our room which was quite noisy. Otherwise room was well maintained and clean. Very reasonable nightly fees, check out the restaurant even if you are not staying here!

This hotel is at the very entrance to the South Rim drive. It contains a cafeteria with basic foods, tending toward the greasy and not so healthy. The rooms are appointed in a way that is above a Red Roof Inn or Travelodge, but basically about the same size and layout. Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived prior to normal check-in time during Thanksgiving weekend.

slightly inconvenient that there is no food or expresso at the hotel, but it is a short walk.
