We booked this hotel last minute. I kept checking and checking until something opened up. We got lucky because this is one of the limited accommodations in Monument Valley. Got advised here to grab whatever I can at Gouldings. We weren't disappointed at all. The room was nice and clean with awesome views. We were on the second floor with... More

Due to the fac that we stayed at gouldings over night, we wanted to go on a tour. I wrote to them before my vacation if I have to reserve a tour and they answered me it is enough to be there 30min before the tour starts. First I was a bit worried, but it worked out perfectly. We arrived... More

I have stayed at Goulding's Lodge twice now and both time had a great experience. We stayed at the Campground in one of the cabins and its just the best! Waking up in the morning and looking out on a view like that... What else do you need? Yes, the price is high for a wooden cabin but what history... More

We had reservations to stay at "The View" but decided to check out the Goulding ' tour before we checked in. This was a nice tour of the park. Leave the driving to them. Our tour guide told us Navajo traditions along the way. Booking this tour also got us into the park free for our hotel.

We paid US$ 133.89 for a room next to the Gas Station. The building we stayed had 4 units. The room was so small that we did not know where to put our luggage. There were 2 windows not to the exterior but to another room with a vending machine, a table, and chairs. We stay in the dark. There... More

Great place , one of only two in Monument Valley; I guess Goulding's made Monument valley famous thro' the history of the trading post, helping the local Navajo etc. The historical trading post as a museum is still there and wonderful to visit, giving a history of all movies made there, from John Wayne era to even more recent Forest...

We stayed at Gouldings Lodge during our tour of Monument Valley. We were assigned one of the 4 or 5 rooms that are located beside the gas station down the hill from the main hotel and registration area. These rooms appeared to be fairly new as they had USB ports and electrical outlets above the bedside tables. The air conditioner... More

we took an all day tour with Gouldings and tours and toured the Mystery Canyon, the Monuments in Monument Valley and a Navajo weaving demonstration. It made for a long day, but worth it

We had a great guide: Jameson. He combined a lot of Navajo history and legend with sights along the valley floor. Made just the right amount of stops for those of us who wanted photo ops. The van had a roof, and vinyl side walls that he rolled down when it started to pour. His final story about Mother Earth... More

Goulding's is located in the heart of Monument Valley of Utah, very close to the Utah/Arizona border. The prodigal view of Monument valley buttes were visible right from our balcony/patio. A silent coffee/breakfast/snack on your balcony with such view was enough value for the money we spent to stay here, which, by the way, was not much. Do not expect... More
