nice place for being in the middle of nowhere. The restaurant is fairly good food and the staff is from the front desk to the waitresses is great. I did have an issue there before with my ice chest trying to be stolen so make sure you secure your belongings.
We stayed here 2 nights while visiting Monument Valley. Clean, comfortable rooms, nice staff, decent restaurant. I was not impressed by the breakfast that several other reviews have mentioned, nothing special at all - standard or a bit below other hampton inns. I would recommend a stay here but not the non-alcohol beer, it's dismal.
When not enjoying the native lands, guests can have fun in the hotel's heated, outdoor swimming pool.
