It is a charming place sitting in the middle of nowhere. Once you enter the courtyard, you are into a peaceful world. The room is nicely decorated with Navajo Indian crafts, and the bed is surprisingly comfortable. The restaurant serves delicious food with the best fried bread. The food price is so reasonable that it cost less than what I pay for grocery in Virginia.
We stayed there for two nights in March. The best was that we experienced what a good business should be in this hotel. Owner Josh was working on site, making sure everything was in good order. He is a very nice, approachable and interesting person with a strong sense of value and ethics. The Trading Post is a private property inside the Navajo land. Most of Josh's employees are Navajo Indians. To honor Navajo's law of banning alcohol, Josh's restaurant chose not to serve alcohol, giving up a huge profit driver. Josh also bends backwards to satisfy the customers' needs. We were such customers. We are very impressed with Josh's problem solving ability, particularly his attitudes towards customers.
Hiring the locals, honoring a virtuous principle, satisfying customers are what we experience at this hotel. It's rare and very precious. I recommend this hotel in every way to everyone.
