Desert Rose Inn & Suites

Amer & Cindy Tumeh’s first dip into the hospitality industry started when they purchased the Historic Jens Nielson home and renovated it into a 5 bedroom Guest House. They loved the people and the process so much they decided they needed to expand. However, not wanting to destroy the historic integrity of the Jens Nielson home they decided to build outside the historic district. Landing them on the west end of Bluff they started with 5 Executive Cabins and an office cabin in 1997....

PhoeniX 186 "One of my best hotels ever" Without any doubt, this must have been one of the most beautiful hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. While not immediately noticeable from the outside, the interior is simply stunning. With an amazing eye for detail, the rooms were most likely decorated by an interior designer (see picture). Even in the bathroom, attention was obviously paid to the little details: only a faint light near the toilet (if you need to go during the night, the light isn't too bright for your dark adjusted eyes), but there's a brighter one near the sink. The switch for the ventilator was conveniently placed next to the toilet itself.
The pool in this hotel was beautiful too, and the staff was very friendly, even giving us the menus from the few restaurants down the road and checking the weather for us for the next day.
Are there then no negative points at all? Yes, there were, but only minor ones: a little refrigerator on the room would have been nice; the pool is slightly mysteriously prohibited to swim alone in as there are no life guards (I can swim perfectly fine and wouldn't mind doing so alone - not sure why this is not possible); and the location: it's (save the few venues in Bluff itself) pretty far from everything. If you want to go visit Mexican Hat Rock or Monument Valley as we did, you're in for an hour drive. That being said, I don't think any of these minor "issues" should diminish the score for the tremendous time we had at this hotel, and I would gladly come here again. Highly recommended.


yellowchat  “The Gem in the middle of nowhere 13/5/2015 Well after a full day of magnificent sight seeing this hotel was a revelation , an ultra modern wooden hotel situated in a small town ,still being added to and we as a group were housed in the latest addition and what luxury it was(see photos) The hotel had no facilities for an evening meal (we later walked to a local steak house),as for breakfast ,we were initially going to town for that as none was available at the time of booking but 3 days before our arrival breakfast service was up and running and very nice it was. We had a late arrival so was not able to visit the Bluff Historic Fort but understand it is a little jewel so if you have time be sure to visit.
This place stands out in Bluff. We had a cabin and it was clean, quite, private, very nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable. There was a refrig, microwave, separate vanity area. The bathroom had a big shower. Towels were clean and thick. There was a desk and desk chair as well as a sofa. Ample outlets for charging all the electronic devices that we can't live without today. Free WiFi that worked well. Main building also has coin laundry. Would like to have had a room safe for locking up those valuable electronics like the cameras and computer. They will be an on site restaurant (Duke's) opening within weeks. If the restaurant is as good as the Inn and cabins, it will be first class. The only other good restaurant is Comb Ridge Bistro which is directly across the road.

DeLois H “A Very Nice Retreat”This is just a great place. My husband and I first stayed at the Desert Rose Inn several years when we made a very spontaneous trip West to see Monument Valley. We were vaguely aware of a few lodging choices in Bluff via Internet research and pulled in around 10:00 p.m. without a reservation. Unaware of just how small and geographically isolated the town of Bluff was we arrived starving with no options for dining due to the late hour, not even a open convenience store in the area. The staff graciously accomodated us and pooled together fruit and snacks free of charge. We didn't realize how beautiful the property and surroundings were until we awoke the next morning and always regreted that we didn't have more time to stay. That said, we finally had the opportunity to return this past Memorial Day weekend. Having planned much better this time, we arrived a little before check-in so as to maximize the experience we cheated ourselves out of the last go around. We found our room to be spacious and cozy, rustic in decor. The king-sized bed felt luxurious and we enjoyed the generously sized flat-screen television. We found the indoor pool and hot tub, located within a glass atrium, to be a particular treat and watched a memorable sunset while sitting in the hot tub. Most of the patrons appeared to middle-aged and included many European tourists. Many folks were seen walking from the hotel to the few restaurants in town. The rates are somewhat higher than when we stayed several years ago, but with the renovations and additions this almost feels like a resort. It was a very nice and much needed retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday city life. We will definitely splurge and come again.
