"Check your bill before paying "
Lady tried to charge me nearly double on my credit card. Two amounts where not even similar numbers. Disappointed as I don't think it was genuine error..Trip was ok, expensive and very touristy. We spent 2 nights, one would have been fine. Indoor pool was small and shallow but good temperature....
"Beautiful place to enjoy Monument Valley"
Goulding's Lodge is an oasis in the desert and a great base from which you can explore Monument Valley and its spectacular mountain-rock formations. It is set against a large red mountain wall facing Monument Valley only a few miles away, and a spectacular view of the mountains that are carved in such a way by the weather that they look like a cityscape skyline. Literally some of the mountains are shaped like tall man-made building skyscrapers, except they are Mother Nature-made. Gouldings is affordable. We stayed there only one night, in late July 2017. The cost was $220. The lodge is expansive and includes two room areas, one elevated against the mountain wall that looks towards Monument Valley, but the rooms are small. They are clustered next to the lodge restaurant and souvenir shop which offers a lot of Native American (Navajo) artifacts and cultural items. The other group of rooms are actually small individual villas a short drive (several blocks) away in the open valley. Each villa is a small home with a front porch, front room, kitchenette, bed in the front room and separate bedroom with a second bed. That's what we rented. It was very comfortable and very clean. Each villa had a small parking space right next to the villa. It was very convenient. We arrived early in the day, unpacked and then drove to Monument Valley where we drove the 7 mile circular route viewing the monuments. Gouldings has a nice restaurant overlooking the expanse of the valley and mountains in the distance. The food was very good. We only had one incident. We ordered steaks for dinner but they tasted like pork. White meat, tough. Not sure if that's the way they grow the cattle out there. They also have a small museum documenting the Goulding family history settling there in the 1920s. Lots of focus on John Wayne, who made some movies out there. Ask for the villas if you want room -- you can still view the valley from them. Or, the smaller rooms next to the mountain wall and Goulding's Lodge offices, restaurant, museum and souvenir shop if you want to be near all the amenities. You will have to drive back and forth (very short distance) if you are at the Villas. While dining, we were able to watch a sandstorm coming in from over the mountain skyline and quickly pass. It was an overall great experience that we would do again without hesitation.
"Hotel that allows pets!"
We booked Goulding's in mind mainly because it allowed dogs. The room was comfortable, sufficient heat- especially since we went during winter. The room supplied coffee and the lodge has a small museum and gift shop. They also offer movie showings in their theater. It was a fair price in a great location.
Our group of 18 were booked into Goulding's Lodge in Monument Valley. We were overawed by the scenery, especially the large rock backdrops to the hotel and the amazing colour. We found the rooms to be very good, quite large with opening doors and a balcony looking out over the landscape. So beautiful at sunset. The furnishings were quite retro but suited the "cowboys and indians" theme. We were given excellent history about the area and the Native American culture by our Globus tour guide so thoroughly enjoyed the lodge, the Navajo cookout and the scenery.
"Cabin: dog-friendly but inconvenient and expensive; EV charging basic - and fliesâ€¦!"
Monument Valley is spectacular. You should go - and if you go, Goulding's Lodge is a great choice. This review is of the lodge as a place to stay on its own merits, particularly travelling with a dog in an electric car, and not the location, which speaks for itself. Goulding's Lodge requires that visitors with a pet stay in a cabin: and it's great that they are pet-friendly at all. The cabins are quite expensive, and this also means that you can't use any other facility without a drive as the cabins are some distance from the hotel itself. The cabins are well-appointed with two bedrooms, a useable kitchen, and functional wifi - and of course you do get an unbelievable view from the porch. There are also short hikes you can do. There is also a grocery store and snack food available at the gas station. The problem was the flies. Yes, it's the desert; there will be flies. However, when housekeeping at Goulding's Lodge prepared the room I can only imagine they propped the door open because there were maybe 30 large flies in my room. It was disgusting and annoying, and agitated my dog which meant ignoring them was hard. It really didn't help that a mostly-finished can of Pepsi had been left on the table, which must have attracted them. I managed to get rid of them - and learned a trick: open the windows at dusk and they fly to the screen, then close the window and they will be trapped between the screen and window and die. Repeat when they are dead, until the room is clear. Anyway, I mentioned this to reception, who seemed to think this is just the way it is. One or two? Sure. Ten even: sure. 30 large flies happens when people aren't even trying to keep doors and windows closed. I was also in a Tesla and stayed specifically for the charging. The cabins have regular outlets. Disappointingly, the NEMA 240V outlet I had hoped to use having read about it was at a camp ground. They charge for it, and it was *always* being used by RVs. They also don't permit overnight charging. I was able to get to Blanding but couldn't help but think that Goulding's has really missed a trick here. So, obviously the location is great. The lodge is fine, but the cabins aren't particularly convenient, and if that comes with a lot of flies, it's not entirely clear what the premium is for.
