What a view! What a view
One night stay on the way north to Moab. Every staff member we encountered was very nice from check-in to check-out. The room was immaculate and well appointed. Despite the pandemic causing the Nation such grief, some of amenities such as coffee maker (pod type) and 'fridge were still there.
This place rates a return visit when all this Covid business has passed to see how they really shine.

Average campground in Monument Valley
Stayed for 2 nights to visit MV and the Valley of the Gods. Very close to Monument Valley and unfortunately it was closed due to Covid. Valley of the gods was open and about 45 minutes from the campsite.
This is a basic get in as many campers as you can facility. The sites are small and packed together. We had a full hook up which worked OK. Camp ground is nestled in a small valley above the park. This is not a modern Campground in the sense that you are not on cement pads. It worked for two nights but I wouldn’t want to spend more

We loved it
Fit perfectly into the surroundings with a ton of history. Great tours available if you ask. Fantastic view of the valley. Not on tribal land.
Clean room, covid compliant, good tv and wifi. All rooms have balcony facing the valley.
Food service limited due to covid issues.

The rooms are fine, but nothing special, and the property is obviously having to deal with difficult issues caused by pandemic. I would echo comments from other reviewer regarding "8-hour" day tour. Not what we ended up with at all and certainly not worth the $120 per person price tag. Would not recommend doing that, best wait until the park opens up again. We did enjoy the little theater on site (free John Wayne movie, The Searchers, played the night we were there. We were only people in the room. Of course the setting of the property and surrounding buildings is great, beautiful sunrise/sunsets made it worth the visit.

We wanted to see the iconic Monument Valley but due to Covid -19, it was closed. We stayed 2 nights at Goulding’s. The resort is about the only thing going in the area and they offered all the necessities. The room was dated, sheets didn’t fit the bed correctly and the hours for the dining room was limited. However, Dustin at the dining room was wonderful, pleasant and extremely friendly! McCara at the visitor center arranged a private sunset tour of the Mesa behind the lodge. Art was our driver and took us out before sunset and shared the story of the Navajo people and how Goulding’s was founded. I highly recommend you make the trip, even though Monument Valley is closed to tourists, the views from Goulding Lodge is worth it! Thank you for a memorable trip!
