Very Pleasant Unit Accomodation
We stayed here for one night after a long day visiting both Antelope Canyon, Glen Dam and Monument Valley. Arrived well after dark. Our self contained unit was comfortable and clean. Bed was comfortable - a great night’s sleep. Nice shower - plenty of hot water.Cannot say much more about the facilities. We left the next morning at dawn. Thanks for your hospitality.

Monument Park Stay
Had a one night stay at Goulding's Lodge. On our way to Gouldings we took a quick stop at a dinosaur tracks location just off the side of the road. Was not cost and was a cool stop to make. Had our own little cabin, just like new. Obviously recently built. Had our own little kitchen, and living room area, and two beds, one in its own room. That evening we did a desert cookout through Gouldings. Took a ride with Goulding's out to a remote area. We had Navajo Tacos fixed on site and then music by two American Native Indians. Watched the sunrise the next morning which was spectacular. Overall a great experience! This was an Adventure with Disney Trip.

Three Nights in Monument Valley
We stayed in one of the "cabins", which are pre-fab small houses, situated on a slope along some of the rock formations. Ours was clean, spacious, kitchen... with WIFI and satellite TV. Could have slept four, but it was just the two of us and two dogs. I might say it was a bit pricey, but you are not only paying for a nice, clean place to stay but also awesome landscapes. We recommend the guided small "bus" tour of Navajo Tribal Park. It takes you to places where you just can't drive on your own and lets you off to look around and take pictures. Depending on time of the year, late afternoon tours are the best because if you are taking pictures the morning to midday light is way strong. As for the dining room, it's just OK food. Go early or in slack times to get a window booth for a super view of the Valley and Goulding's Trading Post. The complex also has a grocery store and laundry. We used both. My guess you have never washed your clothes in a place with a super view like the laundromat at this place.

Shame about the check-in team
If it wasn't for a really poor experience checking in, we would give Gouldings a good review. Our room (when we eventually got it) was comfortable with the view of the valley we had travelled 5000 miles for. The restaurant was good and the little museum fascinating. It is nice to have the story of the place so well told. All staff, other than on the front desk, were friendly.
Unfortunately, when we arrived we were allocated a room which turned out to be nearly a mile away, with no views, and in fact was a three bedroom apartment. We went back to reception to ask for a change and were told they had nothing else. Our booking clearly showed a room in the main lodge and was made 9 months in advance. We had to really stand our ground but were finally reallocated to the type of room we had booked and told to come back later when it would be ready. Even then, the man we saw demanded we booked in again and it was only through the intervention of his colleague (tall, friendly, young man - thank you!) that we avoided another wrangle. At no stage did we receive any explanation or apology. Such a shame that this group let down the rest of their team.

Spent two nights with the family in one of the cottages. Clean,quiet and well maintained. Absolutely great personnel throughout. Right across from the monument valley Park entrance. John Wayne cabin on premises ( from the movie "She wore a yellow ribbon")
