Fantastic location, nice room
We stayed here for 1 night whilst on a road trip around the grand circle national parks.
The room was nice and very clean, and the balcony was fantastic as it had a superb view (we had a Deluxe View Room).
It is very convenient to stay in the park as it is quite a long drive form the park entrance into the park itself, so staying here enable us to get an early start!
We would recommend the Far View Lodge and would definitely stay here again!

Needs an update
We were exhausted after a busy day hiking and climbing and were happy to have a short drive. The room was small and needed an update. It was clean and had a wonderful view. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We dined at the restaurant and found the staff and food to be very good. We enjoyed our meal in a pleasant dining room. Probably will not stay there again but it served a great purpose for a tired couple

A room with a view
The hotel is inside the Mesa Verde National Park, which is a plus!
To get to the hotel you will be amazed by the beautiful roads, mesas and wild animals. The room was clean, perfect size, 2 queens beds. No TV, but who got time for TV when you're surrounded by so much beauty.
We had dinner at their restaurant, make sure to make reservations.
Saw the sunset from the Bar deck, gorgeous tons of pink!
I would definitely stay there again.

So great to stay in a National Park
I stayed in this Lodge in 1993 with my family and again by myself in 2018. I enjoyed being able to stay in the park at night, to see the sunsets and sunrises. Great breakfasts at the Far View Terrace, elegant dinners at the Lodge. Comfortable rooms, nothing spectacular, but we're there for the scenery, not the hotel, right?

Location, location, location
We booked a “deluxe” kiva room. What we got was certainly not deluxe in my opinion.
Waited patiently at check in whilst the solitary check in assistant dealt with a gentleman with what seemed like a very complex reservation problem.
Eventually a second member of staff appeared….only to be drawn into the problem the other member of staff was dealing with.
Finally we were checked in. A quick scribble on the map showed where our room was located and that was it.
Our room seemed a bit shabby, and certainly appeared smaller than in the photos.
Fridge, coffee maker, tiny bathroom, small balcony with two chairs and small table.
No TV - fine, no microwave OK, spotty wifi - we're in the desert.
The worst thing by a mile were the paper thin walls coupled with amorous neighbours who either didn't realise or didn't care that we could hear everything.
Reading on the balcony I looked up to see a deer grazing below which was nice. We may have seen more wildlife if the folks next door had kept the noise down.
However, if I were to return, I think I would stay again, purely to save the long drive in and out of the park each day.
