What to Expect During Your Hotel Stay

Monument Valley is a beautiful area with astonishing desert scenery that could take days to explore if you want to see everything.  Staying nearby gives you the best opportunity to see as much of it as you possibly can and Goulding’s is a great place to begin and end that adventure.  Not only do you have options in regards to accommodations at Goulding’s Monument Valley Hotel but a variety of activities to choose from, either onsite or off-site but booked through the Goulding’s tours office. 

It doesn’t get much better than being able to have everything that Monument Valley has to offer right at your fingertips but you will still want to plan for your trip.  There is not a lot around in the area because much of the land is owned by the Navajo people, so being prepared is important if you don’t want to spend a lot of time driving.  Knowing what to expect during your hotel stay at Goulding’s will help you decide what to bring and what to wait to get after arriving.
