We read that Kayenta, AZ has one of the highest crime rates in America. Has anyone had issues with staying at the Hampton Inn or the area?
We didn't have any problems. The hotel seemed safe. We also ventured out to get gas and went to McDonalds. The hotel is on the edge of town, so maybe the problem is more in the main part of town.
It feels pretty secure with keycard entry at all access points.
The hotel is very updated and was not an issue, however one exterior door did not lock. Do note that this is the only chain establishment for more than several, several miles.
Me and my daughter stayed there in May on our way home. we had no issues while there the staff was very friendly and did not see anything suspicious while there. There was a large bus tour staying there at the same time as us.
Only stayed one night and ate at the hotel restaurant so we didn't leave the facility. Felt very safe in the hotel.
I did not encounter any issues on the hotel property. However I do NOT recommend walking to the nearby shopping center. There were many panhandlers on the adjacent properties, but by the time I saw them it would have seemed odd for me to turn back. I could not see the panhandlers from the hotel. I tried to take a route closer to the road to avoid the panhandlers in my way back, but then was followed by friendly, but persistent dogs trying to get the bags out of my hand. I did not feel uncomfortable at all on the hotel property.
We stayed only 1 night but hotel seem very safe and quiet. We didn't have 1 issue. Nicest hotel in kayenta Highly recommend
No ! none whatsoever. I felt safe at the hotel
We had no issues. They ask that you not give handouts to panhandlers.
Some natives asked us to help them buy dinner and then breakfast the next day. I didn't have any money with me and told them so, and they were very friendly despite that. They gave me some information about the area and about how the Indians lived years ago. I felt pretty safe, but don't stand around in one place too long or you'll be asked for money.
I'm non native and live in Kayenta due to husband's job, most the violent crimes are native on native, lots of domestic violence it's a "dry land" meaning no alcohol which is the cause to most the violence because they go off the rez to get it or boot leg it in their homes and as far as the rapes it's mainly native on native. The most crimes you will see the non natives (tourist like you) will be the non neglected homicide involving DUI and even then it's mainly native on native, as long as you keep doors locked and aware of your surroundings and stay off the roads at night your be fine the most annoyance is if you get into a collision you better have insurance. on the rez, natives really aren't required to carry insurance and sueing isent goint to get you anywhere even a total loss due to them being drunk,then the drunks pan handling and if you park at the bashes park all the way in the back their slam their doors into other cars and not care once again not gonna get you anywhere because they never have insurance and sueing is a waste. But as far as dangerous I wouldn't call it that, yes the crime rate is almost tripple the US average but The only thing I would say is stay off the roads at night and be very aware of DUIs even during the day. Alcohol plays a massive role in the crimes so before you give them money just know if you do your funding someone's death and most receive tribal pay once a month anyways .Enjoy your time in Kayenta and don't worrie it's not as dangerous as it seems, the truth behind the beautiful land is nothing but tragedy when you realize what's happening.
the restaurants and grocery store here employ security guards. does that help answer your question !
