Charged $150 because hotel thought we smoked in the room.
The hotel charged my debit card $150 the day after we left. I called the hotel immediately to find out what the charge was for. The manager on duty told me that the cleaning staff said the room smelled like cigarettes. I said no way because we did not smoke in the room. My wife and I went out to the parking lot when we wanted a cigarette or cigar. My guess is that the smell permeated our clothes and the smell transferred over into the room and blankets. I have filed a dispute with my bank.

TOTAL RIP OFF RV PARK
We arrived and went to book in and the young lady in a little hut acting as reception was so un helpful followed a script told us to drive around the oval route and choose a park place then come back to her for more info when I told her I can choose a park place from her plan she had shown us that indicated which sites were free then I don't need to come back she said its not possible talk about intelegenc Zero. and that was that idiot. As for the price far too exspencive for no hook up nearly $50 for the night. We paid $39 in LV with full hook-up swimming pool etc etc etc. So beware.

Location, Location, Location
They don’t call The View Hotel “The View” for nothing. Just about every room, the lobby, the deck, and the restaurant offers dead center views of the valley and its strikingly beautiful red rock formations. The hotel rooms are nothing fancy, walls are thin, the thermostat in the winter is set to hold at 63 at night (brrrrr and you can temporarily work around that), and the food in the restaurant is less than mediocre, but in spite of these few issues, if you are going to Monument Valley, this is the place to stay. Waking up at sunrise to the Monument Valley views from your own private balcony is beyond breathtaking and staying through sunset is no less magnificent. The lobby, with its real wood stove, verses gas, is a super nice touch on a cold night and an added bonus. The museum and the gift shop are worth checking out. Don’t miss the 17 mile drive and weather permitting, the hike. WiFi and cell service are both spotty to non existent so be prepared to disconnect and enjoy being off the grid in one of the most spectacular places in the country. Winter in the Valley in the snow is magical. Consider yourself lucky if you happen to be there at that time, like we were.

There is no better location for visiting Monument Valley. The Mittens can be viewed right from your balcony. The restaurant is adequate and there is a good gift shop. There are museum displays too, which are a bit lacking, but still interesting. All in all, I would not want to stay anywhere else for a Monument Valley visit.

One step better than a hostel
I think ideally you would see MV and then drive on to a hotel elsewhere. It is generous to say it is 3 stars - I t’s one step better than a youth hostel and they charge accordingly. Rooms were clean enough with dates decor and on the bed the sheet was not as wide as the thin scratchy synthetic over blanket which made for a bad night’s sleep. When we stayed it was freezing cold with no visibility. I’m sure a view would have helped counter act some of the negatives.
