Basic, clean,small but huge views
One reviewer described it as a motel and I think if you expect that then you won’t be disappointed.
Good- great location, clean, nice lady at check in and check out,amazing view, comfortable bed(s). Good shower. Nice Starbucks coffee filter in little coffee maker. Good meal in restaurant.
Not so good- very antiquated fixtures and fittings.Hilarious clothes rack above coffee machine next to only sink in room which is outside bathroom. I shall attach pic. Lack of healthy snacks in shop or their satellite canteen. I’m vegetarian and had to grab a jam croissant for breakfast (I’m not a sugar person) as we had a very early tour of cliff palace and had to check out too.

great location 15 miles into park, but needs upkeep
I booked for 2 nights checked in around 4pm for first night, I choose to stay there rather than drive in from Durango. Great view from balcony, very thin walls, no insulation I could hear voices and someone coughing during the night (no television so no noise from that) I had a downstairs unit could hear people walking above me, The shower handle fell off while in shower.. No breakfast available on site, fruit &coffee only, had to drive 1/4 mile to next building, 10$ for continental breakfast, No sit down menu, coffee toast cereal. Dinner was available at Far View. This was a great park I would recommend visiting but stop at a store in Durango to pick up water yogurt etc, I did this but wished I had gotten more as there was no general store available to buy snacks etc T-shirts gifts were available at both locations

Tired old lodge, but worth it.
Great location, a bit too expensive the parking lot.for what you received.
Coffee and fruit in the lobby.
I asked for a better view room as the one I got overlooked the parking lot, and was put into one with 2 full beds.
Shower was a drizzle.

The room was nice, but the wife got bit by some bugs in the bed. The view is nice, and the location to the Park is ok, about halfway to the museum. The Manager was not accommodating, But Hotels.com refunded our money anyway.

Tranquil, serene, beautiful!
Loved the remoteness, quite and beautiful natural surroundings. National Park class and rooms were eco-friendly, very clean and comfortable.
Restaurant had excellent food and great service. We loved the unique location of this lodge within Mesa Verda National Park and the property is well maintained and managed
