I vowed to return to Goulding’s after many years. I finally made it back. I love this place and the ease of using the lodge as a base camp for exploring the area. From its view of Monument Valley, tours provided around the area, hikes on the expansive property, a visit to the John Wayne Cabin and original stage coach used in the movie “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon” on site, to the restaurant on the top level of the property. Don’t forget to order a side of the traditional Navaho Fry Bread, either plain or with the powdered sugar and honey provided.

This was a diamond in the rough. Pleasantly surprised how updated and clean it was. You could see stars forever at night. The view of the monuments was amazing. I would stay here again, no doubt and allow an extra day just to enjoy the beauty. it was quiet and magical.

Come For The View

A breathtaking view can be seen from every room of this hotel. All the movies you have seen that were shot in this location, and even the Bugs Bunny/Roadrunner cartoons, come to life here. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. The front desk staff was efficient, polite and informative. The breakfast at the restaurant was delicious. My omelet was much more than I could eat, overly stuffed with meat, vegetables, and cheese. I felt like I got my money's worth with it. If you like this kind of scenery, this is a great place to stay.

The view you came for

Stayed 1 night in April and was quite satisfied with quality. It's a basic motel, but spotlessly clean. I stayed in the 200 block (second floor - front row) and had a wonderful view of the sunset across the valley from my balcony. Front desk staff were very helpful and had various maps and advice for the area. For sunrise you can drive North about 10 miles to various road turnouts and get the rising sun on the backside of the monuments (during Covid, park is closed). Also on site was a gift shop, pool and restaurant. If you are lucky, you can get a dining seat right at the window (as I did) and watch the lowering sun play across the buttes. Goulding's is on the expensive side, but how many motels actually give you a view like this? This is what you came for.

Sunrise from my own balcony

Goulding Lodge is near (within miles) the Monument Valley Tribal Park. Each room has a balcony that looks toward Monument Valley. I watched the sunrise from my balcony in my pajamas. That has got to be one of the coolest things I’ve experienced. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean with individual bags containing toiletries. The check in and check out staff were helpful.
