My wife and I spent two nights at the Rocky Mountain Hotel and found it a comfortable, or as they say homely, base to explore Petra. Coffee and breakfast on the top floor is a good way to start your day and their packed lunches are generous, as is their advice on how to discover Petra.

It's not the fanciest of places, but it's very homely with extremely friendly and accomodating staff. The room is beautifully decorated with Jordanian (?) designs. The terrace/lounge area has some of the best views of Wadi Musa. The free shuttle is helpful, it would be much better if they have extra shuttle for Petra by Night, because taxis in Petra... More

You could almost miss Rocky Mountain in the rush to reach Petra but don't over look this little gem. The views from the balcony and Bedouin style roof restaurant are simply stunning. I have returned many times to the hotel. I first visited at Christmas when a decorated tree, dinner and the red rugs were a welcome sight after a... More

I've stayed at this place probably 3 times over the last 3 years. Each time Jane (owner) is so helpful and hospitable, and the stay is comfortable. Its definitely not a fancy place- has a "grandma's house" feel, but I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Wadi Musa. Rooms are always clean, staff is nice. Also the top floor common area... More

The room was nice with a beautiful view of the city through our window. The front desk staff was friendly and very helpful with arranging transportation to Petra and to our next destination. Our TV was acting up, but its OK because after spending 2 entire days in Petra we were too tired to watch TV anyways. However, overall I... More

We stayed at Rocky Mountain for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a car with us so it was easy driving around. It is 5 minutes drive to the Petra visitors Center and they do offer shuttle service too. The rooms are basic but comfortable and offer spectacular views of the city. The roof top terrace is...

My friend and I stayed at this Hotel for two nights while visiting Petra. The hotel has great character, which is certainly helped by the owner Jane, who is both welcoming and helpful.

The hotel is runned by a very friendly couple and they will make your stay very nice. They will give you a lot of information about Petra and they also could arrange a lot of trips for the next days.
