    Goulding's Lodge is cut into the side of a cliff and all the rooms have balconies overlooking the valley. We were lucky enought to stay on the night of a full moon. Watching the moon rise over the valley and the sandstone monoliths is fabulous. They have a restaurant, pizza snack place, indoor pool and the Indian jeep tours through the valley leave from their parking lot. My kids loved it! There's a Best Western in Kayenta on the south side of the Utah line and the Mexican Hat lodge on the northern side. (That's where we'll be staying in March. If you are in Kayenta, there's an native American restaurant and a Sonic fast food place.
