This is, indeed, the closest hotel to the Canyon de Chelly. All rooms look like log cabins (yet attached to each other) and are very comfortable, spacious, and are equipped with everything one would need today. Only the bathroom is a little small. The hot water did not work in the morning, but after we called the office, it was quickly fixed. Wifi was free and worked well in the room. Enough parking for cars right outside of the rooms. Unfortunately, no breakfast included, but since Chinle is so remote, and since there are practically no easy places to get food, I would strongly recommend this. Of course, they want to make money through their cafe next door, but the price for the room is already quite high. It was very quiet and we got a good night's sleep.

It was our first motor lodge stay and we were plesently surprised, Car parked in front. Roomy inside. More channels on tv than Bellagio. Convenient to canyon de chelly. Incredibly quit in the morning. You feel the remoteness ! Great night sleep!

Not easy to see the office special at dark and also if you are a first time visitor. As soon I gave my name then I got room keys within 1 minutes and done the check in! It was a big help since we wanted to have dinner at its cafeteria and it was closed to closing time! All the cafeteria staff had a good heart to answer our questions and let us stay as long as we like to.

With the lodge being on the outskirts of Chinle, and close to the entrance to Canyon de Chelly, it really is the best location! Quiet and peaceful, comfortable rooms with fridge and coffee maker, and a good on site restaurant covers all you need for a great visit to the canyon. Pleasant efficient staff.

Beautiful location. Single level lodge with outdoor seating by green grass. Very clean, quiet, and comfortable. A great night's sleep after an active day. Explore the trading post (look up for the wool yarn). After driving the cliff rims, don't miss the Thunderbird open air Navaho guided driving tour through the canyon. We likened it to a white water rafting adventure with stunning views of cliff dwellings, petrographs, and pictographs.
