On the evening we arrived, the paper on the door was with another name. The key lock had no notice so we had to go to the other unit to see how it worked. But eventually the door was not locked... When we entered, we were welcomed by ants enjoying a piece of candy on the cupboard right in front... More

we stayed here for 4 nights during the Xmas week. All around our stay was pleasant and comfortable. The unit was clean and has 2 bedrooms, living room, small but outfitted kitchen and very small bath. There were only 2 of us in the unit so we were more than comfortable; a couple of friends stayed next door in unit... More

We have stayed at this property four times so you know we like it. Great location, a couple blocks from busy downtown. A quiet location. A block from a lovely city park. Comes with WiFi. It's old and could use new appliances, it's clean and maintained and the yard is lovely. Perfect for a Moab visit.

We enjoyed our stay in Desert Garden No. 3, the stand alone cottage. As others have said, this is not a luxury resort, just a small complex of three older units located a couple of blocks from the main street. There is a large private yard with shade trees, BBQ grills, and a hot tub; ample parking is outside the... More

This place has a duplex unit and a stand alone cottage. We stayed in the cottage. We visited in late March, so we didn't need air conditioning, but did use the heat on one or two nights. We stayed for a week. There was plenty of room for 4. The kitchen was adequate. The living room and dining area were... More

I originally booked a different condo through the lodging company, but weeks after my reservation, I was contacted that the condo I booked was no longer available, and they moved me to Desert Gardens #1. The price was pretty good coming in close to a cheaper hotel, but with a kitchen, which was a plus due to the fact that... More

I stayed at Desert Gardens and thought it was a great value. Only 2 blocks from Main St. easy walk to town anytime yet very quite location. It has a huge yard with huge green trees to sit and BBQ in and a hot tub the only 3 units share. While older buildings and not luxurious it is cozy, clean,... More

Desert Gardens Cottages consist of a duplex and stand-alone unit on the same lot. They're located two blocks from Main Street and about two feet behind an old cement block storage building. The units themselves are old and constructed partially of concrete blocks. Moab Lodging will tell you they are air conditioned, but don't believe it. The unit we were... More
