Tonight, on my return visit to The Virginia (the first being around 4 years ago) we had the pleasure of meeting Carey and Martin, The Virginian's new managers. I have to say that they provided my family and I with some of the best service that we have ever experienced anywhere. Their generosity was unparalleled and I have no doubt... More

The Virginian is a comfortable, clean motel in a great location just walking distance from the restaurants and shops. The staff is friendly and accommodating. There is a nature trail just behind the motel that is great for jogging or scenic cycling. It only took about 10 minutes to get to the Arches National Park. Loved this place and will... More

Being in Moab and less expensive than many places, I guess they get away with it. This place is desperately in need of some maintenance; re-investment; good management supervision of the cleaning and layout of the rooms. The fridge door could not be opened without dragging it along the carpet floor. The coffee machine had not been cleaned as it... More

The Virginian is a nice motel in the center of Moab. Walk to plenty of restaurants and activities. Rooms were clean and adequate, mine had a kitchenette although I did not use it. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There are nicer hotel chains in the area but they are much more expensive. I would stay here on my next... More

The Virginian Motel is not fancy, it is a basic room some with a small but full kitchen or the rear building with a refrigerator, microwave and a coffee pot. It costs less than any place else besides the hostel. They have cable and they allow pets. The management has always been very nice to me when I have been... More

After reading some reviews, I thought I'd find some sketchy motel with cranky management. Absolutely not so! Comfy beds, clean room, close to Arches and town restaurants. All at half the price of some other AA motels. It was just across the street from the Moab Diner.

This place was way cheaper than the other hotels in town. It's an older hotel but clean. I felt like it was a safe place and it was very quiet. There are some apartments behind the hotel but I never saw anyone outside and no noise at all. My husband and I walked several places around town. Staff was very... More

I didn't go to Moab for recreation, I was just passing through and need a place to sleep as it was getting late. To spend over $100 just to sleep and shower is insane to me. This place was a more reasonable $69 + tax. The first thing I noticed when I opened the door was the wonderful smell. I... More

It's weird when every other motel has a full parking lot and the Virginia motel had no one in it. But I figured it probably be the cheapest place in town, which I was right. I think it might just be mismanaged but the room squeaky clean, no bed bugs, cheep, comfy beds, refrigerator microwave and coffee in the room.... More
