We took a sunset tour of Monument Valley park which lies within the Navajo park. The driver guide was quite good in his descriptions and explanations of the geology, flora/fauna and Navajo customs. The tour vehicle is an open-air large 4-wheel drive which is definitely more comfortable when not filled to capacity. The tour was worth the cost as we... More

We stayed 2 nights in our 24' Trailer - lovely views. One has to be prepared for dessert camping, as there will be no grass; however, I'm impressed w the number of trees they have between sites. Full Hook-ups add to the convenience of staying on-site of this magical place. Restrooms/showers were well maintained. Would be nice if laundry and... More

This is the historic place. We stayed at a camp-site, and spent a whole day in the swimming pool. You can see lots of starts above the mountains.

We travelled around Utah, Arizona, and Colorado for a week this summer with 5 kids ages between 7-11 in a 35 ft RV. We stayed at 8 different campgrounds and this was had a spectacular view. Downside is that you are far from the main dining area and store but super close to the indoor pool! The kids swam (pool... More

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...
