The lodge was very comfortable and well worth considering for its location. While there are lots of less expensive places in the neighboring towns, its wise to consider driving times to and from the park if you plan on visiting for a few days. Being right in the park saves a lot of time as you explore. Plus the food...

We just arrived at this great motel. Clean room, giant, comfy king bed, with an awesome view of the valley. The downside: there is a common door between rooms. True for this room (133) and our friend's room (138). I can hear every word being spoken by the neighbors, and they are Not being loud. There must be some way...

We stayed here for a single night while on a road trip through New Mexico up to Denver, CO and it was NOT long enough. We plan to come back for sure and explore the park to its fullest. Far View Lodge is a small but cute accommodation in the heart of Mesa Verde National Park. The room was a...

We stayed with our dog at this location for a couple of nights while we explored the park. The lodge has amazing views and we loved our room. It had a balcony, so we would sit on the balcony in the evening with the front door and balcony door open and let the refreshing breeze blow through. Stargazing at night...

We stayed at Far View Lodge for 2 nights. Staff was friendly and helpful at check-in. Our Kiva Deluxe View Room on the second floor had a king bed, wardrobe, refrigerator, and private balcony. The best part was a great view of the nighttime skies, including the Milky Way, from our balcony. My husband, a former astronomy professor, saw constellations...

The hotel is conveniently located on the top of a hill so that from the room you can appreciate a really far view. The room itself was big enough for 2 persons and clean although it seemed a little bit old-style but well maintained. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. A nice place if you plan an overnight stay...

Fabulous view. Lodges are very small. Good for little people! Many things can be forgiven in the canyons! So we forgave and enjoyed the stay. Restaurant is nice again with lovely view. Good food too. Worth a visit.

We so enjoyed our stay at Far View and highly recommend the property to others. We had a second floor room and our views of sunsets and across the fields, mesas and canyons was stunning! We could see Ship Rock...some 40-miles way in New Mexico! The room was well appointed and comfortable and close to Park activities and ancient sites....

Cabins quite basic, but recently upgraded. Nice private balcony. Walls very thin however, so just hope you don't get a noisy neighbour! Quite good good options locally with either a good restaurant or a cafeteria. The mesa verde ancient pueblos are amazing and definitely one of the highlights of my trip.

Beautiful views and sunrises/sets. Lovely clear skies for stars at night. Elk by the breakfast room. Rooms are basic, with balconies to sit out and look at the scenery. Two options for eating - bar and restaurant. The restaurant prefers booking, and was full by the time we arrived, so book in advance if required!
