I loved the Holiday Inn in Chinle. For me, the very good vibe reminded me of what it used to be like to check in to a motel when I was a child: super friendly, super clean, super accommodating, super. I wrote an email while I was there that the feeling of 'trip back in time' had nothing to do...

Thought the hotel was adequate, rooms were good size and clean. I found the staff not to friendly but they did what they had to. Breakfast was good - we eat off the menu and not the buffet as we were near the end of the breakfast timings and the buffet had not been replenished. Overall an adequate hotel, nothing...

We stayed at this HI for two nights while visiting Canyon de Chelly. Driving into the town can be somewhat of a shocker to someone who has not spent much time on Native land out west, so this hotel was a welcome antidote to our culture shock. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the grounds were immaculate. They...

Rooms were clean enough, if showing some wear. We stayed at Best Westerns throughout the entire trip, and this one was by far the least friendly (maybe because of lack of local competition?). Pool was out of order, and the taps were running brown water when we arrived, and the staff was unapologetic; however, to give them their due, they...

I do have some nice things to say about the Holiday Inn, Canyon de Chelly, but first... the wi-fi signal was weak everywhere but the lobby! POOR... that's the word my tablet kept using to describe the signal strength. It's 2013, more people need and want wi-fi. Do you think I want to watch your stupod TV? No, I want...

Great location to the entrance of Canyon de Chelly. You literally can see the entrance to the park from the hotel parking lot. We were surprised with all the wild horses and dogs roaming around the reservation. There were cows roaming too, but we were told they were branded and belonged to someone. Be prepared for that, we had to...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Canyon de Chelly 21 years ago, shortly after it opened and had excellent memories, though vague. Coming back, two decades later, we found that the hotel remained excellent in every respect (reception, room, breakfast). Consistency over time that give confidence...

A rather nice motel which is well laid out with ample room size and all the expected facilities. We could not find anything negative to say about the room nor the motel itself. A good night's sleep was enjoyed and we rose early and hit the road without trying the restaurant for either the evening meal or breakfast.

While on a recent business trip to the area, I stayed at the Holiday in near Canyon de Chelly in Chinle. The premises was OK, a bit older, but nice enough. I had booked a King or Queen room and when I got to my room, the fresh pervasive odor of much cigarette smoke, to which I am allergic, hit...

We just stayed at the Holiday Inn and it was a pleasant surprise. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. Manager Aaron needs to smile and get a personality.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Holiday Inn Canyon de Chelly hotel in Chinle, Arizona is located at the gateway to the Canyon de Chelly National Monument, the 2nd largest canyon in the United States! Just minutes from the canyon, you can tour the area with one of the local tour guides or you may do a self-guided tour of the canyon look-out points. The canyon has a total of 11 look-out points, all which have views of ancient ruins, petroglyphs, and pictographs. The hotel is a part of the historic Garcia's Trading Post located in the heart of the Navajo Nation Reservation. Enjoy a delicious meal in the Garcia's Restaurant which has a casual southwestern flavor. Or if you would rather enjoy a quiet and private meal, room service is available during regular restaurant hours. In our giftshop you can find beautiful Native American jewelry and southwestern works of art. For your convenience, vehicle tours into the canyon are available at the giftshop. At the end of the day, you can take a stroll through our beautiful courtyard or take a refreshing dip in our heated, outdoor pool(seasonal). ... more   less
