“Very good”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

A little out of our budget of road tripping but expected it in this very remote location. The room was beautiful and the view was great. The bed was Amazing! Good stay. If you are travelling grand circle going to Gd Canyon you'll find cheaper motels on the way so get yourself a treat and stay there as it's the best location for monument valley!

Who could find fault with a place that provides an unparalleled view of Monument Valley. The view from the Hill House is simply fantastic. Besides that, the accommodations are economical ,clean, and spacious. They really want to do a good job here, and it shows. Stay here (but, remember, this is a Reservation, so BYOB), you'll be glad you did.

Room Tip: Red Rocks Hill House has the best view.

Stayed in the Monument Valley apartment (with view and full kitchen). The room was spacious and clean, a great place to rest in the evenings after days out. The apartment is above the main lobby, so there is a little noise that penetrates the floor, but the rest of the positives very much out weigh this small negative.

The apartment had a view of the valley from the bedroom, a nice comfy bed, and a full kitchen (but not a ton of pots/pans/dishes). The full kitchen is a must in this area, as there is only one restaurant - unless you go into town - to which there probably ins't a huge selection either.

Can't emphasize enough that this place felt just plain comfortable . . . Would definitely stay at Gouldings and in this apartment again.

We stayed 1 night at the beginning of January, we chose gouldings house for our family of 6, rather than two hotel rooms.
Gouldings house is not situated where the hotel is, rather a 5 minute drive away, once there it was a large house with good accommodation and a well stocked kitchen, washer and dryer. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a very large living area.
Only it was a pain when the kids wanted to go swimming, as the indoor pool is over with the hotel, so we all had to hop in the car and drive over.
Very good views from the house, I was able to lie in bed the next morning and pull the curtains back and watch the sunrise.

Goulding's Lodge management and staff is so pleased to hear that this guest enjoyed their stay in our "Goulding's House". Besides regular motel rooms, Goulding's Lodge does have some multi-bedroom, family units scattered throughout the property that can comfortably accommodate a larger family. The Goulding's property is one square mile, so some of the larger units do require that you drive back & forth to the restaurant, swimming pool, museum, etc. We want to thank this guest for their wonderful comments.

We visited in freezing cold weather in January but the snow only added to the beauty of Monument Valley. Gouldings was very comfortable and warm. The rooms were modern with excellent views and the food at the restaurant was both tasty and good value - I really enjoyed the corn beef hash. There's a museum (free) where the films of John Ford feature strongly. In the small theatre ( again free) there was a film on the geology of Monument Valley and a showing of "She Wore A Yellow Ribbon" which was filmed there. Cowboy heaven. There is even a replica of Captain Nathan Brittle's cabin - you could imagine John Wayne strutting out of the door.
We did a half day (3 plus hours) tour that the Lodge arranged where our Navajo guide took us round the valley on a 17 drive where we took in all the wonderful,breathtaking sights. Awesome, in the true sense of the word.

Goulding's Lodge management and staff is so pleased to hear that this guest enjoyed their Monument Valley visit. A stay at Goulding's Lodge is truly stepping back in time to the "Old West". This historic property was once home to such movie legends as John Wayne and John Ford. And,just so you know, that is no replica of Captain Brittles office from the movie "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon", but is the actual building. We appreciate your wonderful comments. Thank You!!!

In some hotels, only the most expensive rooms have a view, but at Goulding's, every room has a view and is inexpensive. The lodge is right in the middle of Monument Valley surrounded by the Navajo Nation, has an excellent restaurant on site and even a snack bar with awesome pizza just a 2 minute drive. I love this lodge. Even John Wayne stayed here, and you can visit his cottage for not charge.

We stayed for one night in room 101 visiting Monument Valley. We had a great view across Monument Valley from our room and the room was a good size, with a king size bed, large flat screen TV, balcony and mini fridge. However, the fridge did make peculiar noises in the middle of the night which did disturb our sleep somewhat, although the comfy bed more than made up for it, unusually comfortable for a hotel I thought. The bathroom did have a bath and a shower and there were some lovely vanilla and honey soap/body lotions which smelt gorgeous on the skin after a day getting particularly grubby hiking around West Mitten (wild cat trail). We ate dinner at the Stagecoach dining (see seperate review) which was conveniently on site, and we also picked up some lovely coffee and croissants from the on site grocery in the morning. A perfect base for accessing the sights of MV.
NB, if you do not have a 4x4 and want to do the scenic drive Gouldings lodge do organised guided tours of MV and surrounding areas.

Room Tip: 101 nice room but did back directly on to reception, although didn't suffer from any noise due t...
