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.

Unique place to stay
The visit to the lodge was unique and really worth the price. The room was clean and cozy. The staff all were friendly and cheerful.
The view from the patio was splendid. The sun rising over the monuments was something else.

Didn't stay, but did tour facilities
First of all, we did not stay at Goulding's hotel; however, we did tour the grounds and availed ourselves of some of the amenities. Thus, we would like to offer some insight to those that might be considering this facility.
The location of Goulding's can't be beat. It's, literally, minutes from the Tribal Valley (when it's open) and right off Hwy 163 which is a fantastic scenic highway. Covid protocols are definitely in place and everyone we met was kind, friendly and knowledgeable. The Lodge is your typical 'vintage' lodge but the rooms looked clean and well-kept, as did the grounds. The campground was amazing and, if we're in the area again, would definitely consider staying there. (It looked either new or newly revamped.) The restaurant was great and there is a museum, store and gas station on site. We did take one of their tours and were completely satisfied with both the tour and the cost.

Cozy, clean & comfortable
We stayed one night at Goulding’s Lodge. The room was reminiscent of a vintage motel. It was clean and comfortable. The views of the valley are impeccable. The staff here are outstanding. From the hotel to the restaurant to the laundromat- everyone we dealt with was polite and helpful. The food at the restaurant was very good. We only had takeout because of the pandemic and the meals were delicious and packaged nicely.

Wonderful Scenic Destination
Just returned from a 3 day day at Gouldings in the hotel. We are all trying to adapt to exceptional circumstances this year as we try to lead a normal life. The staff were excellent in checking me in and
making me aware that things are not as they usually are. I did not use the restaurant facilities but they were open and safety precautions all in place. No maid service for everyones safety and protection.But they were there is we needed anything. Tours were distanced in the vehicles. It was a most relaxing few days as I gazed over the miracle that is Monument Valley Tribal Park. I left with my batteries recharged and ready to get back to the pandemic world. This was my 2nd visit to Gouldings and I can safely say it will not be my last. I got everything I wanted and needed on my visit. Thanks for continuing to try to keep things normal and share the beauty that is around you.
