Amazing scenery!

We took a wrong turn coming from Page to Monument Valley, however, we had left really early to get to our 9 AM tour. We were about 10 minutes late, however, the office radioed... read more

I picked this place due to it's proximity to Monument Valley, but besides the lodging which was great, they have a theater, museum, gift shop, gas station, grocery store, food court, restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hotel has a pool, fitness center and laundromat also. All the Monument Valley photos are from the front porch of the... More

Booking a stay here for 2 consecutive nights proved to be very difficult and time-consuming even months before travelling. In the end had to book to separate single nights in 2 different rooms which on arrival was converted into a stay of 2 nights in 1 room. With me so far? Also, their website is terribly clunky & slow. Accommodation... More

38 of us were quickly fed a lovely lunch and do bring 'normal' tea-bags, as they only serve herbal or lemon. We went on a great Bus Trip and the guide was really friendly and funny. The family history was interesting. The Monuments are breathtaking and totally natural-let's keep them that way! John Ford Point was beautifully serene. Enjoy anywhere... More

We had a superb day with Henry our tour guide he showed us the scenery and explained much about the history and culture of the local people. There were only 5 people on the tour which made it quite personal. Henry prepared a bbq and served burgers in a shaded area of the valley.

We took a wrong turn coming from Page to Monument Valley, however, we had left really early to get to our 9 AM tour. We were about 10 minutes late, however, the office radioed our guide Emilio who was able to wait for another driver to take us to where they were just beginning the tour. We really appreciate them...

Our premonition was that this place would be overcrowded and worn down. Badly mistaken. The reception looks quite tasteless and tatty with its artificial leather sofas and decor, we were expecting the worst. They upgraded our double queen room to a suite which was fantastic. The cabin faced the monuments which we could enjoy by moonlight. Very new, very clean... More

The beauty and majesty of the valley was complimented by our tour guide Leland and his knowledge and presentation of facts and history of the Navajo and Valley itself. We felt like we got the best tour guide of all. He made us feel like he was almost there just to show us the Valley exclusively with his intelligence, delivery,... More

Wonderful place to stay. The drive coming and going is breathtaking. The suite at the lodge was great it was large super clean and the views are spectacular. You can book a tour right in the office. They take you all over monument valley. The Best sunset yet. Highly recommend Gouldings,we will definitely return.

I did not want to take the rental into the valley, so was looking for a tour. Reading the reviews here did not let me expect much - but I was surprised - our guide was really, really good, she shared a lot of stories from her childhood in the valley and told us about how people lived back then....
