Close to Canyon deChelly entrance and far enough from the road to be quiet. The only problem I had was the internet connection did not work and the staff was not able to help me with this problem.
We got the room very cheap on a last minute deal. Room was fine. No breakfast in price though. The town is not somewhere you would want to go unless you are passing through.
Check in was slow. Our room was clean but small. The hotel has a restaurant associated with it and, therefore, did not provide a complimentary breakfast. Service in the restaurant was atrocious. There was a long wait for a server to take our order and an even longer wait for our food to be served. Our server did not check back to see if we needed anything else or to refill our water glasses.
Clean, comfortable, convenient to Canyon de Chelly.
Enjoyed our visit. Room was fine--upstairs in closest building to road. Restaurant food was very good. We wished we had brought a few bones for the friendly dogs outside.
This motel is convenient if you are visiting the canyon. The hotel is a little outdated but it was quiet and comfortable-a little expensive for what you got. No free breakfast was a drawback.
Very well kept, clean property that was like a little oasis in the otherwise Third World-ness of the rest of the city. The only intrusion was the stray dogs that wandered the parking lot, but you get used to that very quickly when on an Indian Reservation (along with stray cows and horses). Apparently, if you live there and the animal belongs to you, it will come wandering back. The location of the hotel was great, since it sat on the edge of town, literally within sight of the Canyon de Chelly visitor center.
Clean and quiet, and in good condition. Staff was friendly and helpful. Restaurant attached to hotel was also a pleasant surprise, good food at a reasonable price. Would stay again.
this was a very nice, clean and bright hotel. there were no elevators, but only two floors with an easy to get up stairway. the only complaint i had was that we were locked out of our room before check out time.
The minute I opened up the room, the odor of the place smelled like dead fish and hot trash. I had to open up the sliding door and turn on the fan to get rid of the smell that took a few hours to ventilate out. Turns out whoever cleaned last and/or stayed never flushed the toilet after he/she used it. Just lovely! It would've been nice if the room came equipped with a refrigerator and a microwave for the price you paid (not sure if there are higher priced rooms have this option). The room on the other hand was clean and tidy. The continental breakfast delivery option to your room is a bit of a joke and very overpriced as they charge nearly $ for a piece of toast, juice and fruit when you can go down into their restaurant and they offer an all-you-can-eat buffet for $(not sure what they offered). Overall, the place is okay at best if you need a place to stay after visiting the Canyon de Chelley. There is very little to do around town at all so be sure to bring a laptop to take advantage of the free internet access in the hotel and bring things to amuse yourself.
Nice hotel in a very remote location. Close to the canyon. Staff was very hospitable.
The rooms all have indoor entrances and the outside wall is windows -- it was spacious, sunny, airy, and secure. The Holiday Inn is located very close to the entrance to the mouth of Canyon de Chelly -- convenient! The restaurant was quite nice, and kids eat free. We were also impressed with the staff's helpfulness and received good service overall. Our experience was very pleasant.
desk clerk was most helpful in assisting on guide service.
The hotel room was very clean and quiet. We did need to call down for towels. Had the room reserved for 4 adults, only had 3 towels. Hotel was easy to find and close to our activities. Was a bit pricey, but was only one of two hotels in the area, so I guess they could get away with it. The service in the restaurant was lousy. Waitress told us our food would be out in 10-15 min. It was probably closer to 40-45min. Didn't get the right dressing with the hot wings meal, requested a side order of ranch with a sandwhich order, finally went up to the salad bar and dished up what was needed. we were done eating by the time the waitress came out with it. Drinks were not refilled. The food and price was decent, and good atmosphere, just bad service.
The slow, lackadaisical restaurant service was exasperating for travelers who need to get on with their day. Wait staff, on 3 occasions simply didn't respond to requests for a spoon, a condiment, refilling the french toast on morning buffet...no morning paper...no internet access
