The far view lodge consists of many one or two-story smaller buildings and lies beautifully embedded in the landscape near the restaurants and the bar, or the cafeteria. We had in advance due to the evaluations for the kiva room and repented it in any case. Very nicely designed, large room with comfortable bed and small balcony. You can tell, that the rooms are new. Wireless internet works well and is free of charge. When we arrived we were given a 50 Dollar coupon, we all the facilities to redeem could. So we ate twice and even lunch was also ... from! The cost for breakfast, or lunch are not as high as we from other parks knew. At our travel time were rather older people in our immediate neighborhood. read hotel review

    Large kiva rooms-very new with wohlfühlcharakter. Tastefully decorated with view over the beautiful countryside. Air conditioning available-the windows open at night... Fridge was available too. Clean, relatively small bathroom. Sink is not in the bathroom, but in the room itself.

    There are several places in the park. One evening we ate in the restaurant-of course a bit more expensive than the self-service shops. Nice atmosphere, but the food didn't taste so good to us. The dessert was very delicious! ☺ to stress is, that on each card something for vegetarians and even a vegan court to find. I was very pleased! :-) We took breakfast in the cafeteria-has good fit for us. There is quite a lot to offer-warm food (breakfast burrito offers, etc.) , as well as toast and bagels, cereal, etc. Sometimes, it seems, that the staff in the cafeteria with clearing tables fails... But a clean table is always somewhere to find.

    The far view lodge was for us the best starting point for exploring the parks with two mesas. It was really a nice experience, the park to stay overnight and early in the morning with the tours to the various houses to start. Adjacent to the lodge there are the restaurant and the bar. The cafeteria is by car reachable in two minutes. Could also walk.

The hotel is located on the plateau of mesa Verde and provides a sweeping fantastic view of the countryside - it is on the website really not too much promised. The standard room has no tv - who needs the view from the private balcony! The room is relatively small, but functional, the bathroom was also completely sufficient. The rooms are in different buildings spread over the grounds. In the main building is the restaurant and the bar. The dinner in the metate room is an experience - gem: cinnamon chili pork tenderloins and a good wine! For breakfast we ... were in the far view terrace café - is on the way to the national park. also a great view and everything in the offer, which one for an extensive need for breakfast. There is also a mesa mocha espresso bar with excellent coffee. The café of the nativs powered - there is also a well-stocked gift shop. read hotel review

    Musty, small, dark' room' for a lot of money. We were horrified, when we the door to the uniqe buildings of wood dating back opened. Price-performance in stark imbalance. The shower was disgusting, in the measly ' wet room' hanging two nice black spiders. The sink was in the room. Tv does not exist. The advertised 'beautiful view' was in our case on the view from the balcony on a few bushes and the access road.

    To the hotel involves the restaurant far view lodge, the in an exalted ambiance very good, but not discounted dishes, as well as the far-view -terrace. There is rather cafeteria atmosphere, you eat there but not bad-for cheap money. Otherwise there has also a nice view on the park. We also had breakfast. All food there was in buffet-form.

But, that it really in offizielenn part of the national park is located, the hotel is well and the price affordable. You should in any case to eighth, a room with air-conditioning and view to book. Naturally one may at the park a hotel not expect too much, but be careful here price and performance, for 1a 2 nights one is in good hands here. read hotel review

Only place to stay in Mesa Verde NP. With two stars and more appropriate to a parliament than simply described, so what do people do? What we can do for two nights found: great location, different residential building, all rooms with balcony in green surroundings, separate front desk building with a restaurant, further building with a self-service restaurant and shops. Cabins, we didn't see any, you have to go somewhere be the former. Our standard room was absolutely sufficient, rustic, with everything, which one needs, refrigerator, coffee maker, sink, ironing board etc. the balcony did we do after the excursions ... and with wonderful weather extensively used. Only the tiny shower bath with toilet you could forget, very unpleasant, as unsatisfactory, although everything was clean. Self-restaurant was okay. The Mesa Verde NP was a highlight of our trip and is on its way one-time with the cliff Dwellings Anasazi -Indian the. Furthermore, scenic wonderful with lots of animals. Since the ride alone from the national park-entrance to the circular routes with the rock apartments 25 kilometer is, for us, worth only this property, especially the park is huge. The journey from the next town Cortez almost 40 kilometer, so it is unnecessary and, in the evening 'just' to go out to eat! read hotel review

The hotel is in the middle of the Mesa Verde NP. The rooms are located in buildings, the a great view of the surrounding areas. Unfortunately have the rooms the best time behind itself- the furnishing is rustic. The leisure activity options were pretty good. In the room there was no TV and no air conditioning, therefor but a heating-which we required, as it is on the next morning was very cold (0 °C and light snow) in the hotel there is a restaurant. Which we didn't use it. Dinner and breakfast we stayed at the terrace cafe. read hotel review

Hotel is a bit simple laid out, but perfectly adequate for an overnight stay in the middle of the NP. Is also the only, otherwise the next is located in Cortez. From there you are but a bit late to on the NP. The hotel is right in NP start. There is also a restaurant, a great food served. Rates are a alcoves higher but well worth the money.

    The rooms are not big, but clean and tidy. Each room has a small balcony with chairs. A special feature is still: There's no TV and no air conditioning. You need air con, as it is not really hot. And the lack of TV is really pleasant. We spent our evening sitting on the balcony, reading and dawn the saw deer watching the trough had. The animals are free to come to the balcony folks, quiet if you. The starry sky after dark, it's absolutely fascinating. Since there is no Lichtmüll as in the cities, you can easily see the Milky Way.

    There are several possibilities. On the one hand, there is a Art diner with very large dining room, which is designed large groups. The food is OK, but no revelation. There is also a restaurant, the Metate-room, where to dine out in the evenings. The rates are wonderfully juicy.

One would we at the start of our small statements Farview Lodge at the Mesa Verde National Park. all the negative on the internet incurred opinions with very mixed feelings visit the Lodge left, we can confirm in smallest way. Now they surely more than the appearance of the individual building complexes argue, where the individual rooms, in the scenery are they didn't bother. To be fair we must say, we had a better "with KIVA" room type booked the equipment in their standard room is different. Our experience relates so exclusively on the category "with KIVA" which we recommend ... with good conscience. The pictures attached give an insight into the ambience. We had a room with 2 queen-size beds. The rooms were air conditioned. Should Negativmeinungen rely on the lack of a TV, so did the TV junkies my understanding, surrounded by nature being fond tourist on this piece of furniture certainly for the duration of his stay without. The rooms are cozy and equipped according to the character of the area. A few sqm more would be welcome, for one night we arranged with the size of the rooms (. Three of us). The room including the bathroom made a very clean and neat impression. All for the United States typical equipment such (. Except for TV) were available (iron & ironing board; coffeemaker; hairdryers…). The view from the Fascinating small terrace to our room had just returned early in the morning was great to enjoy the peace and long. With a car to the door of his room ancestors. Convenient to meters action of the luggage. In the main building there was the reception area, a small souvenir store, a restaurant and a small bar on the first floor including outdoor terrace. You can eat in a self service restaurant about 500m away, where there is a very large souvenir shop, the bric-offers wide assortment. A few yards from the lodge is the Mesa Verde NP Visitor Center where you tours to the Cliff House, Balcony House and Long House can book and must, should you want to visit. But you visit the park in first line. If you have a rare commodity Zeitbudget and visit to the park to 2 x 1/2 day have planned, would need a night in the Farview Lodge (. Only Lodge/ hotel at NP). The drive to the next hotel outside the park is time consuming. Have fun at the visit to the Mesa Verde NP, which it is worthwhile to visit. A 3/4 day is a must if you want to see the three main attractions (see above). A final note: If you Saisonmonaten in the summer in the Far view lodge, want to stay at a time when the whole world on the road (…Mesa Verde is one of the most popular NP), would make a early booking over one of the famous German tour operators and internet. arriving by Blindly may mean, no room for the night in the lodge. read hotel review

The accommodation is relatively plain, but adequate. Each room has a balcony. Gastronomy nearby, once the highest order and Höherpreisig, even easier, but tasty.
