Monument Valley, Utah

Virgin rating

The hotel

There can be few more inspiring places than Utah's national parks, and if you're hoping to capture shadows at sunset or hoodoos at dawn then the Desert Rose Inn provides a characterful and comfortable base to do so. Accommodation is rustic combined with modern amenities, including complimentary WiFi. Step outside and you'll be faced with plenty more sights, with some of North America's most iconic sandstone structures of Monument Valley, Arches and Natural Bridges just a short drive from your front door. Once you've explored the surrounding parks, a dip in the Desert Rose pool or hot tub is always on the agenda with a fitness room also on hand if you feel like you haven't stretched enough. From the delicious delights at Duke's Bistro to the warm welcome at the front desk, this is an amazing location to experience Americas' national parks.

The dessert rose resort it situated in a nice small town, although on main road you will not be disturbed by traffic as there is none.

The dessert rose resort it situated in a nice small town, although on main road you will not be disturbed by traffic as there is none. The resort it self is very beautiful for sure but pricy for some outdated furniture and choice of colors in the room. I would recommend changing the color of the towels as some of the towels look very old with stains they beige in color you cannot bleach was them. Breakfast was mediocre. Not continental. So if you are looking for a selection, this is not the place. They also have a code to enter the breakfast room, which we thought was very weird. No other guests would come other than the resort guests? The pool area was the best. We had a great time as it is pretty quiet and not many people in the pool or hot tub. I would recommend the housekeeping to keep doors closed when cleaning the rooms as small bugs and critters were found in our room. Read less

In comparison to other lodging in the town, this location was a step up in quality. However, they were a bit over priced in my opinion. It sits on the main road and doesn't really have the surrounding environment I'd hoped. Not a destination location.

A real find!! Located in a small town, this lodge was a real charmer. While the room furnishings were a bit rustic (stayed in the motel units), the room was clean and if an adequate size. The breakfast room located behind the reception area was pristine. The food, itself, was well presented with a good selection of tasty breakfast items. Staff… Read more

The breakfast room located behind the reception area was pristine. The food, itself, was well presented with a good selection of tasty breakfast items. Staff was extremely pleasant. There is also a laundry room. Convenient to Monument Valley - an easy 45 min. drive. The adjacent restaurant, Duke’s, was outstanding!!! Read less

My wife and I enjoyed a three night stay in the lodge. The room was nice and well furnished. The king size bed was comfortable. The continental breakfast buffet was adequate. Overall, our stay was fine. The only issue we had was poor Wi-Fi in our room. We were not able to access the internet on our phones or tablets inside our room. We talked… Read more
My wife and I enjoyed a three night stay in the lodge. The room was nice and well furnished. The king size bed was comfortable. The continental breakfast buffet was adequate. Overall, our stay was fine. The only issue we had was poor Wi-Fi in our room. We were not able to access the internet on our phones or tablets inside our room. We talked with the front desk, and we were advised to walk over to the Courtyard Lobby for the best signal. That was an inconvenience. Additionally, the television in our room was unable to get any streaming services due to the Wi-Fi problem. TIP: If you need Wi-Fi, especially for Wi-Fi calling due to no cell service, ask for a room near the Courtyard Lobby! Read less

Liked this place a lot, but be warned, Duke's restaurant does not serve booze! After a long day driving and staying at Desert Rose, Went to Dukes restaurant and I was informed that they did not have enough servers to let the two of us have a seat. After 20 minutes, we were able to get to a table. Be warned there is no bar here! Very lovely… Read more
