Stayed here one night this past weekend. Stayed in room 113. WOW what a view.Two queen size beds that were very comfortable.Small but clean bathroom. The restaurant on the property was good. Fry bread sandwich was enough for two. Don't forget to see the museum on the property. You are across the street from the entrance to the park so it takes 5 minutes to get to the entrance. Don't forget that this is on the Navajo reservation so there is no liquor served. You can drink in your room but be respectful and take your empty bottles, cans, etc when you leave.

Location location. View of the valley from our room was amazing. Rooms comfortable and staff friendly. Meals in the restaurant were nice. Shots of the sunset from our room was a real highlight. Will never forget that view

Friendly staff and beautiful location

We stayed here only one night although I do wish we had stayed an extra day rather than travelling to Window Rock. Staying in one of the family cabins next to the restaurant was perfect, the "cabin" had lovely view of the valley and was tidy and comfortable for four (I even believe it can accommodate more with a fold-away bed. The staff at the restaurant were great. Food was simple and delicious, the portions very large in my opinion. Alexa who is in the gift shop was extremely helpful. Three days after we left the Lodge, one of our children discovered that a traveling stuffy was lost along our journey (mind you we were already on our fifth hotel in 7 days). Alexa took a look around and was incredibly helpful in trying to locate said stuffy and was empathetic to our situation. In the end, the stuffy was at another hotel but I am so thankful Alexa was helpful in looking. I would love to return to Gouldings and hike more along their property as well as in the Valley.

I took my 17 yr old grandson on his school spring break and spent two nights at the lodge. Beautiful balcony view looking onto Monument Valley. Staff was very helpful in booking, checkin, and arranging the all-day area tour (not to be missed). Excellent restaurant with average prices, good food and good courteous service. Gift shop on premises with quality Navajo items. A MV museum displaying the past Harry Goulding history as well as the numerous movies produced in MV.

Wasn't what we booked.

we booked our trip 10 months in advance. We booked a room with a balcony overlooking the valley. When we arrived we were given a small mobile home type of cottage. Don't get me wrong, it was all brand new inside and in above excellent condition, but it wasn't what we booked. We went back to the front desk and after waiting 15 we ended up dealing with the "manager" about the issue. He said the balcony rooms are all booked. I said look, I made this reservation 10 MONTHS AGO!!!! After some back and forth (and a 40% refund) we ended up keeping the original place, but moved to a higher one on a hill (unit 410) which gave a batter view. They have a front porch with chairs as well. When booking here, call and discuss what you ant. Their site is misleading. The location is gorgeous. Just make sure you're getting what you think you're getting. The cottages sit below the hotel area and many don't offer a great view. CALL THEM!!!
