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 views. 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-premise 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.
