“Outdated rooms but amazing view!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

The price is right at this hotel, only paid $50 during low season. The staff was very helpful and gave us a room upgrade. We had a one bedroom apartment suite with a balcony. The view from every room is spectacular! Situated right across monument valley. The down side is, the hotel is outdated and in need of a facelift. From pink sheets on the bed to old wood panel doors, it desperately needs an update.

The campgrounds just down the road from the lodge were a decent place to stay overnight. The grounds were fairly basic but the facilities were pretty good. Some interesting rock features to quickly explore around the grounds. The indoor pool was a pleasant surprise. The showers in the shop were clean.

First come first serve campgrounds.

We stayed here on our visit to Monument Valley and were very impressed, check in was friendly and efficient and the room was furnished to a higher quality than a lot of the places we found on our trip. We were there in the low season and thought the rate we got through Hotels.com was great value. The only weakness was the restaurant but I may have just chosen badly as my partner enjoyed her meal. Would certainly recommend and visit again.

This place is amazing. Wonderful views from our room and balcony, exceptionally clean and the staff as very helpful and friendly. The supermarket is not over prices (as you might expect it to be, being this far from a major town), it has a post office, the bed was awesome, the restaurant staff are great and the food is very enjoyable. We will be coming back to stay here the n the USA,

Room Tip: We stayed in room 200 above the main reception, it has a full kitchen so you can cook if you prefer...

This has to be the best $55/night hotel we've ever stayed at. The king-sized bed was extremely comfortable, and the room offered breathtaking views of the monuments from a balcony furnished with a bistro table and chairs. We stayed the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and the hotel was at or near capacity.

The hotel is part of a large complex featuring a restaurant, a quaint museum, a campground, a small movie theater playing complimentary westerns every night, cabins with kitchens and a "John Wayne" cottage used during the filming of "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon."

Aside from The View hotel (on Navajo land), you can't stay any closer to the 17-mile monument drive. Goulding's is just a 5-minute drive from the park entrance.

We are very appreciative to the maintenance man who graciously helped us with a toilet mishap.

Woody Guthrie would have been further inspired here. Waking up in the comfortable bed to the morning light shining on the Mittens was a "as good as it gets " moment for me. A cute museum and a friendly cafe with great hashbrowns w/ a little onion made the morning. Don't make this a skip! Reasonable.

The location is just unbeatable, the view was amazing and the room was very clean and nice. We arrived very late but the guy at the front desk was super nice, efficient and helpful. It is very reasonably priced. Breakfast wasn't included but was delicious. If you're planning to visit Monument Valley I can whole heartedly recommend this.
