          We were very pleasantly surprised when we came to Goulding's. We thought we would be out in the middle of the desert with high winds and storms, but that was not the case. Although it is a large RV park, it is nestled among very tall and impressive rocks. It has all the amenities you could need, is clean and even has an indoor pool! Our check-in literature included suggestions on places to go and tours to take. All very helpful. We were so impressed, we decided to stay an extra day.

          Not bad...too noisy having a 1st floor room. Upstairs sounded like elephants tromping around and, when they opened the sliding glass door, sounded like thunder. Overpriced, but the location is good. Restaurant was average.

          Historical Traveler Reviews Goulding's Lodge & Campground Monument Valley

          Enjoyed Goulding's Lodge

          from

          I recently stayed at Goulding's Lodge, just a few miles from the entrance to Monument Valley Navajo tribal park.

          The room was clean, with a private balcony and a great view facing Monument Valley. The motel and lodge are situated right against some very tall reddish rock formations reminiscent of Sedona, AZ. The room also had a coffeemaker and hair dryer. A decent restaurant is just a 3-5 minute walk.

          The views at Goulding's are gorgeous, and you will be glad you stayed here and not at Kayenta, the nearest town, some 21 miles away. The park itself has a terrific 17-mile dirt "loop" road, with various marked stops.

          All in all, a great trip, and it was only 6 1/4 hours from Phoenix by car, including a lunch stop.

          Can't recommend this place enough

          from

          We stayed here in May 04 and were completely blown away with the place. The location is stunning and though the rooms may not be the most luxurious in the world, the views were priceless.

          The food at the restaurant was pretty good - and surprisingly good value. The small pool served its purpose and we really enjoyed visiting the museum - though I should point out that we are not "elderly John Wayne fans" (see earlier review!).

          True, it's quiet in the evening - so go to bed early and get up at 5.00 am to watch the sun rise over Monument Valley - a really glorious site.

          Magnificent views

          from

          We stayed at Gouldings Lodge for one night (6th May '04), having been reccommended by friends. The views are spectacular & we went on a guded 3 hour tour, which was worth every penny. The rooms at the Lodge were of a very good standard and very clean, but very pricey ($139), but you pay for the veiw & it was worth it. However, the food in the restaurant (more like works canteen!) was sub standard and not cheap. Guests are a captive audience, as it is miles from anywhere. A better chef would be much appreciated.

          As it's on the Navajo Reservation, no alcohol is allowed.

          Fantastic Sunrise

          from

          Stayed at Gouldings Lodge for one night as part of a tour of Arizona and Utah. We were promised spectacular sunsets and sunrises but the evening we arrived was cloudy so no sunset, however we got up at 6.30 a.m. to see the most fantastic sunrise straight from our balcony which looked out on Monument Valley. The hotel itself is small and simple but has everything you need. The restaurant is excellent and offers a varied menu with some interesting recipes. The restaurant does not serve alcohol and closes at 9.00 p.m. so not for those of you looking for nightlife, however in this setting you really don't need it - you just sit on the balcony and admire the view!!

          World-class tourist destination

          "must visit place" can't be missed in your life-time.tour great, worth every dollar. views from room 202 breath taking, thunder storm, lighting sunrise/sunset, night sky. pack up and go now. stayed one night. also stayed 1 day scottsdale, 6 nights sedona az. at los abrigados resort/spa. my wife loved it there 09/05/03 -09/13/03. combine sedona with monument valley you won't be sorry.went to grand canyon 99' passed this visit so i have to return again in the near future

          Gouldings Lodge

          from

          The room was very comfortable and of course the view was spectacular. All of the rooms have private balconies. Don't have a lot of expectations about the resturant. The food was below average and the service was worse. The prices for dinner were in the $15-25 range. A Navajo taco is the fry bread with some canned chili on top. Our ice tea (3 of us) had some glob of slime in it that I don't even want to know what that was. I would definitely stay there again but would plan to buy cold cuts from the Gouldings grocery store and make do with that.

          Breathtaking Viewa

          from

          We stayed here in Dec 2002. Wonderful scenery from balcony and during meals at restaurant...steps from our room. Interesting museum about history of Gouldings and movies filmed there. Only 4 miles from visitor center.

          Friendly folks. Wonderful experience !

          Great place to stay

          from

          If you are looking for nitelife or shopping after 9PM, this is not the place for you! Gouldings offer adequate facilities that are very clean and quiet. The restaurant

          prepares first class meals. Ask for a room on the upper level. The view is great. This is a wonderful way to escape the city and it's noises and pandemonium. We've been here twice and will return again. We had the privikege of an all day tour that took us to ancient anasazi ruins with lots of pictographs and petraglyphs.

          we have stayed during the season when the rates are higher and also during the off-season at lower rates.

          This is not Motel 6 country, this is near to heaven.....

          Gouldings gateway to Monument Valley

          from

          The accomodation here is basic but clean. The facilities are also limited (no alcohol!). But you don't stay in Monument Valley for the night life and luxury - that would be naive.

          The Hotel is set within the fantastic place which is Monument Valley (it beats the grand Canyon hands down in my view)and it is this that you pay for in the accomodation costs. Every room faces a superb view of the valley and you can see the wonderful sunsets and sunrise. For the hotel to be plush would be wholly innaproppriate to this wonderful place. Kayenta has accomodation but it is nowhere near the valley

          Be sure to take the guided tour of the valley that starts at the hotel (to make the best of the sunset go on the 4.00 p.m. tour). The guides are native indians and they impart their own love of the place to their guests.

          So please stay here and enjoy the place - and no I am not an aging John Wayne fan!

          Overpriced

          from

          We were very disappointed by our stay at Goulding's. The room was very dark and outdated, definitely nowhere near worth $145 a night. There is absolutely no night life or night service--their diner was already closed when we arrived at 9 pm, as were the grocery store and the food stand in the gas station. We ended up driving back to Kayenta, which we had already driven through, and eating at Burger King.

          The only advantage is that it is right outside the entrance to Monument Valley, but even that is not an advantage when you consider that there are several much more affordable hotels in Kayenta, which is only 30 minutes away. I guess it is a great place to stay if you are an elderly John Wayne fan who likes to buy kitschy souvenirs and goes to bed by 9 pm.
