Stopped at Monument Valley because there is not much between there and Page and I didn't want to drive that much farther after coaxing my gutless wonder of a rental up the switchbacks on the Moki Dugway earlier in the afternoon. Got a double room for me, my wife, and son in the "old" section of the lodge. If we had stayed more than one night I would have gotten one of the apartments as it was pretty cramped for the three of us, but nicer than the Weatherill Inn in Kayenta where we stayed the last time we were in the area. We didn't go to the restaurant because of mixed reviews and to save money. I was done driving so I took the trail down the hill and got a few things at the grocery store. I had intended to get change for laundry as well, but the entire laundromat was full so there was no way we could get any done before it closed- at 7 pm! Yikes. Carried my groceries into the Chester Chicken inside the gas station and got some more stuff. The clerk saw I had my hands full and offered to carry a couple bags back up the hill for me, all the way to the room. I really appreciated it, although my wife was a little surprised to open the door and find a Navajo with bags of fast food! (He got to the door first, as this bilagaana-white man- was tired). We ate on the balcony. We slept well and got some great pictures of the sunrise over the valley before we left.The old trading post (now a museum including John Wayne's cabin), a room used as a movie theater, and a pool are also on site. The upper floor of the older section and apartment unit, on the second floor only have open stairs so if mobilty is an issue, be sure to get a unit in the upper, or "new: section with larger rooms, parking level entry, and accessible bathrooms. The lodge also operates seasonal tours to the Monument Valley tribal park- see descriptions and rates on their website.

Nice campground in Monument Valley
This was the second time I stayed in this campground. Both times we have stayed here, we have had a pleasant stay. Everyone at the office is very nice and helpful. The RV campground sites are ok in size, but they are clean and comfortable. You have a very nice view of Monument Valley from the campground as it is up on a small hill. There are sites for RV and for tents. It has showers, a laundry room, restrooms and a pool, all of which we did not use as we were only there for 1 night. We booked their morning tour of Monument Valley. It never gets old. The views are just spectacular, and I hightly recommend it if you are in the area.

We spent one night at Goulding’s Lodge. We stayed in a 2 & half bedroom house. It was huge, and with the decor we felt we’d stepped back in time to the Wild West during the 60’s. It was a fabulous experience. We had our own laundry which when travelling as a family with 3 children is absolute luxury. Leave your modern day 5 star expectations behind and appreciate this place for what it is... genuine & authentic. Monument Valley is a must visit destination... and Goulding’s is at the heart of it.

Our campsite was perfect. Couldn't ask for a better view. The small store has everything you need for necessities. Road near site was busy a bit at night but the location makes up for it. We camped in a tent and had prime location. Dogs loved it. A couple of trails around campsite. Great spot.

Two night lodge stay
Everyone has seen pictures of Monument Valley, but it is a must see to appreciate the beauty. The Lodge staff was super friendly. I had initially booked one night with a reduced rate. I called and added a second night and they offered the same rate. Check-in/out was easy. The cabin we had was huge. The view was spectacular, especially the sunrise. We booked their afternoon deluxe tour of the valley, 3 1/2 hours of views that you can not describe. The tour guide was knowledgeable and kept it moving along so we could see everything. Ate at the restaurant both nights, food was good but service so-so. I loved the pork chops. I would definitely recommend the lodge with a tour.
