In addition to the lodgings listed here, the prices of which have risen dramatically in recent years, you’ll find several budget motels north of Monument Valley in the Utah towns of Mexican Hat and Bluff. There are restaurants at both the View Hotel and Goulding’s Lodge, but, aside from the great views, both are serviceable at best and will make you wish you’d packed a meal.


If you’re headed to Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, you can camp at Goulding’s Campground (tel. 435/727-3231), which charges $30 per night per tent site. There are also small cabins that go for $139 per night and RV sites with full hookups from $52 to $62 a night. This campground is open year-round (limited services November to mid-March) and has an indoor pool, hot showers, a playground, a coin-op laundry, a convenience store, and Wi-Fi.
