Monument Valley is no Bluff

The Antelope slot canyon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antelope_ Canyon) is within 15 minutes driving from Page, but again, we decided to not overdo things and pointed the automobile towards Monument Valley instead. I guess I'll just have to come back to the area a 6th time to check out the famous slot canyon then. Too bad :-). Monument Valley ( …

We were then transported over dirt and slick rock to a plateau where we went on a 4 km walk, rated 1C, from the mesa level down to the bottom of the canyon. The Anasazi lived here as early as 1250. We saw an Anasazi dwelling in the rock; shards from ancient Anasazi pottery; a spring; petroglyphs; ...

People have been enjoying the scenery here for over 8000 years. Anasazi, Paiute, Ute, and Spanish missionaries have all been here. Eventually in the late 1800's the Mormons showed up and made a valiant attempt to give everything names of a significant grandeur ...

The adult Kemptons lit a fire in the evening and set about the serious task of marshmallow melting to create yummy s'mores. A s'more is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the USA and Canada consisting of a roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Desert Rose Inn & Cabins Bluff

    A great place to watch lightening!

    from

    We stayed here one night, between Mesa Verde and Monument Valley trips. It was delightful and a good value. It's more like a motel than a true inn (it has no restaurant or breakfast service, but it is charming). My kids felt very comfortable here and we all enjoyed not only our room, but the wraparound porch that had comfortable wooden chairs in front of each room on the 2nd floor. The setting was amazing! At night, we were treated to a fabulous summer storm--and the view of the lightening was simply awesome from the porch! Lots of Bluff seemed closed down but we found a pretty good outdoor steak dinner at the Cottonwood Steakhouse (got interesting when the rain began) and a nice breakfast at the Twin Rocks cafe. I would definitely stop in Bluff again, based on our experience with the Desert Rose! But if you go in August, make reservations--the town was booked when we arrived mid-week, in early evening and the manager indicated it had been very busy!

    Very clean but no breakfast

    from

    The place was very nice and very clean. Every detail in the room was carefully thought about. However, we received a list of rules that included fines of $100 if you would break them. It did not give a very welcoming feeling. Another disadvantage was that no breakfast was included.

    Really really good!

    from

    My wife and I were on a tour of New Mexico, Utah, Arizona and California and spent one night in the Desert Rose Inn in Bluff before going to Monument Valley early the next morning.

    Great place to stay

    from

    We arrived May 2, 2005. The hotel is neat, clean, and attractive on the inside and the outside. The room was very spacious with a large separate vanity area and the bed was comfortable. The lodge has a large porch on both sides with chairs placed for relaxing and taking in the views. The desk clerk recommended a restaurant that is next to the Navajo Twin rock formation and we really enjoyed it. We ate our evening meal and breakfast there and had good food and good service and they were priced reasonably. This hotel is close to Natural Bridges National Park, Hovenweep, Valley of the Gods, Mexican Hat, Goosenecks of the San Juan Park, and Monument Valley. Don't miss the view from the top of Cedar Mesa at the Moki Dugway overlooking Valley of the Gods. I really enjoyed Valley of the Gods and the view from Goosenecks of the San Juan.

    Great place

    from

    I usually dislike big lodge-looking motels done in oversized "timbers" that reek of WESTERN decor. So I almost didn't stay here based on the web site--it looked like a big chain or a ski lodge, whereas I like cute mom and pop type places. But this motel is fabulous. Stayed in two different rooms (since I made a last minute decision). My first room was on the rear north corner downstairs and was enormous and light filled. The second night I had a smaller room in front upstairs at the end of the balcony--much darker, but still quiet and comfortable. The towels, spreads, linens, etc in this place are impeccable. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Rate was verrry reasonable.

    Excellent to the North of Monument Valley

    from

    We stayed here for one night after trying to book Gouldings in Monument Valley itself. It was nearly an hour's drive north of the visitor's centre although we were very glad to make this drive. Otherwise we wouldn't have found the Valley of the Gods drive which was fab but not for the faint-hearted in a normal car, which we had!

    Fabulous

    from

    Stayed here 2 nights September 2004, my family and I had 3 rooms. All the rooms were very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated with log frame headboards on the beds. The lodge itself is a modern version of a lodge which belongs in yellowstone. Nice wooden chairs outside the door to the room allows you to kick back in the cool night air. Whilst your in Bluff check out the Cottonwood steak for outdoor seating under a Giant Cottonwood tree and check out Lucky's cowboy riding tours (great fun and Lucky is a real character!)

    Charming rooms

    from

    An attractive Inn which has had some thought put into its rooms. After staying in chain hotels and motels it was a pleasant change to stay in a room which was individual and whose decor fitted in with the Western style of the Inn. The beds were very comfortable too. Just wished they had provided hair dryers!!

    Nice Inn in Bluff

    from

    I stayed at Desert Rose in mid-June 2003. The inn was log-cabin design on the outside and very modern and confortable on the inside. Each of the two floors had a wrap-around style porch, with the backside overlooking the river. Overall, the inn was very nice - just wished I didn't have to go the lobby each time I wanted ice.

    Bluff's Best!

    from

    I love Bluff and for years have spent time there hiking and going on river trips with the local commercial outfitter. (Excellent guided tours incidentally!) The new Desert Rose is one of the finest lodging values to be found anywhere. It is now my favorite Bluff lodging facility!
