I am really happy overall with choosing to stay at Kelly Place. The grounds and main building are beautiful. The night sky viewed from the property is amazing. It is cool that you can explore ruins on the property, and I felt a little weird about how we were just able to wander into the kivas, which are considered sacred spaces. Kelly Place is just about a mile down the road from Sand Canyon, which offers a beautiful hiking trail where you will see many ruins. I highly suggest it. We also visited Hovenweep, and other Canyons of the Ancients sites in the area.
We stayed in a room with a queen bed and bunk beds, which we did not use. The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean and perfect for our needs. The bathroom was small, but that was not a big deal. We could hear all the conversation in the room next door, so if you are looking for more privacy, I'd suggest not staying in a lodge room.
There are lots of great amenities in the main lodge--yummy snacks, TV area, books, a gift shop. The breakfasts are simple and cooked right in front of you! I can't remember if we were given an option online to indicate dietary preferences, but the first morning we could not eat the dish because we are vegetarian. Most likely my fault for not informing the hosts ahead of time! The cook took a lot of time one morning to help us plan our route to Denver, which was very nice of him.
