We stayed at Gouldings for two days to show our nephew Monument Valley. The hotel is comfortable, clean, and provides the services one needs to visit the Valley. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant is adequate with a rather limited menu featuring "American" food and some with a Navajo touch. There is a small movie theatre on the... More

We stayed at te Goulding's Lodge it was great. We enjoyed the view of the monuments. We also enjoyed the tour of the Goulding's home, the museum with John Wayne and John Ford films and other artifacts. The mountain surrounding Goulding's Lodge looked as if someone had carved an Indian's face with head dress. We also enjoyed the jeep tour... More

We were told by a friend to book a tour, so we booked the full day: Mystery Valley , lunch, & Monument Valley. Even got a tshirt! The guides are very informative, they know their history & had personal stories to tell as well. During Mystery Valley, we got stuck three times in the sand drifts, we had to be... More

This tour takes you off road into Monument Valley where your car cannot go. So you get to see much more of the area. Amazing rock formations, a Navajo Reservation where you watch the Indian ladies make wool and then weave rugs and clothes. Places where all kinds of well known films have been filmed, learn about the history, geology,... More

If you plan to go anywhere near Monument Valley, the only place to stay in our opinion is Gouldings. The history is marvelous and the scenery is superb. This is our 4th time there and the area never gets old. This last visit, the motel was full and we rented a house on the property. It was perfect for the... More

Stayed at Goulding's lodge (great place too) and booked the deluxe morning tour (3 hours). We had a wonderful tour guide... More

This review is for the Deluxe Jeep tour and Goulding's Restaurant, as I was on a Caravan tour and this was a stop enroute to Lake Powell Resort. The lunch at the restaurant was very good and service was excellent. After lunch, we explored the museum which I found to be amazing and full of Hollywood history. The MOST impressive... More

Our family stayed at Goulding's Lodge in June and were very happy we did. The view of Monument Valley from our room was wonderful. Goulding's is across the highway from Monument Valley but you can see many parts of it perfectly. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Very serene setting in the desert. Nice indoor pool are and gift... More

We stayed in the RV park and took a Deluxe (3 1/2 hr) tour of Monument. Valley. We loved it. The road is VERY bumpy but the scenery is worth it.
