We stayed here for a night a few days ago. Easy to make a reservation by phone last minute. Our room was renovated, quiet, and clean. There was no hair dryer in the room, but I was able to borrow one from the front desk. I definitely recommend this as a nice place to stay while visiting Hopi reservation.

The rooms are standard but better value compared with hotels in Flagstaff or Holbrook. Good base camp for visiting nearby Canyon De Chelly, Flagstaff, and Petrified Forest. Restaurant was homemade and tasty. Definitely eat at the restaurant. Service in the hotel and restaurant was far above average. Friendly faces always willing to help. Stayed in a room away from the highway, never heard a sound, and got a good night's rest. Did not use wifi.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back away from the highway unless you cannot live without wifi then stay near lobby.

The Hopi Cultural Center is the only lodging between Moencopi (Tuba City) and Keams Canyon, a stretch of 82 miles. There is also only one restaurant (HCC), one convenience store, and one gas station. If you like remote locations with a different culture, this is a place to go. The Hopis are friendly and welcoming to tourists, except some villages are completely closed to "pahanas" or whites because of insensitive tourists viewing them as some sort of spectacle or museum exhibits and being obtrusive with cameras, recorders, and cell phones.
The motel at HCC is a bit on the spartan side (better than a Motel 6, not luxurious by any stretch), but the rooms are clean and comfortable and spacious. The restaurant serves large portions of food at reasonable prices, and service is very friendly. Be sure to try the Hopi traditional dishes of lamb and hominy stew and for breakfast of blue corn mush and hard boiled eggs. Try blue corn fry bread, also.
Artists hang around the HCC selling pottery, silver, and kachina carvings. Everything is authentic and reasonably priced. There are several trading posts nearby if you are interested in collecting artwork. If you want tourist trinkets, go to Flagstaff.

Room Tip: There's not many rooms and all are on one level. It's so remote, you won't have any distractions from outside.

We made a brief stop for lunch and a museum visit. Have the Hopi chili – flavorful, healthful, and served with roasted hot peppers. The museum is small and a bit dated, but contains a lot of information and some beautiful artifacts. It's true about the view; wonderful to be so high up. I agree with the reviews by Lyn E. and William C., also with the positive comments about the blue corn dishes!

Outstanding experience. We stayed the evening at the Hopi Cultural Center, toured the small but quaint museum and then met with Gary Tso for a tour and educational overview of the Hopi land and people. Gary was excellent and was very effective at the comparison of their beliefs to the Europeans.Very hard to explain - you just have to meet with Gary, but the Hopis and their many clans have been in Arizona for generations and live a very simple, yet complex life. It was their strength in their culture that impressed me and certainly if we lived with this type of conviction elsewhere, we would have a far more peaceful world. This experience will change you. It is in the mesas of Arizona, so make certain you take note of the weather, but when you do, get to know the people. They are welcoming. And the silver work and kachinas are amazing.

Room Tip: This hotel is remote and simple. It is on a mesa in the desert.
