Goulding's Lodge

Monument Valley Rd., U.S. 163 just north of AZ/UT border, 24 miles north of Kayenta, Monument Valley, Utah, 84536, USA

Nestled beneath a massive red-rock monolith, this two-level property affords spectacular views of Monument Valley from each room's private balcony. Before the View Hotel opened nearby with even more impressive views, this was the only lodging in the region offering truly knockout scenery. It has more history than its new competitor, but it's not as plush, although rooms do have DVD players, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs; there are also several family suites, each with two bedrooms and full kitchens. The on-premises Stagecoach restaurant, serving American and Southwestern fare, is decorated with Western movie memorabilia. Goulding's also conducts custom guided tours and provides Navajo guides into the backcountry.
