This motel was both recommended in my road trip book and the cheapest hotel I could find on Trip Advisor – this usually doesn’t happen. It cost $100 even though it’s really a $50/night hotel – I guess that’s the price you pay for visiting Moab during the high season. Unlike many other hotels, this hotel is about four blocks... More

The motel is in a residential area which is well placed for town. Our room looked a little tired - it needs decorating and freshening up. It didn't have a coffee maker which we found odd as there was a microwave and fridge. Breakfast was included and you went to the lobby to collect. It was adequate. There was free... More

Stayed here 2 nights. Sheets were clean, beds were comfortable. This paced shows it age for sure. We had mini suite by the pool. Breakfast was just ok, cold pancakes and prepackaged danish, milk, coffee. Pool was refreshing but a little cloudy. Front desk staff is friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Try were the locals swim..power dam! Bathroom was... More

This motel could use fixing up but .... the calling card on it is that John Wayne used it while filming westerns back in the day. In the breakfast room/lobby, John Wayne stands tall and there are photos of numerous other film stars. No 'big-bottom' towels but room was satisfactory. Breakfast buffet could stand the addition of hot items and/or... More

My husband and I booked two nights here in our road trip to visit the National parks. I only booked this hotel because of the price and I regretted it immediately. It is an old hotel, so the fixtures are very outdated and my room smelled pretty musty, but the worst part was the cleanliness. Upon entering the room my... More

When we were planning our road trip to Utah, we included two days in Moab. Finding an affordable motel in Moab proved to be a real challenge (most were in the $125.00 and up range). Unfortunately the reviews for this motel were not a good representation of the quality, though the cost appeared to be reasonable. Our first impression was... More

We rented in this hotel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. I expected a nice clean room with a refrigerator and microwave plus breakfast for a reasonable price. I got exactly that. My husband and I really recommend the pancakes for breakfast. Realize you will be eating in your room, which was perfectly okay with us. We were about... More

Couldn't believe it. Probably the worst place I've ever stayed at. Filthy. The pool was one step above being an open septic tank. This place garnered a reputation in the 50's when a lot of western-style movies were being made in the area, attracting movie stars and film crews. The place is in bad shape today. Best to spend your... More

This hotel is so old and unkept. The carpet (from the 70s-80s era) had a big tear in it. We had to clean the pool which was full of leaves in order to use it, and had to wipe down the chairs before we could sit in them, they were covered in the dust that blows there. Breakfast was pancakes... More

Overall, I had a good experience staying at the Apache. There are newer hotels to select from, but none come close to the price of the Apache. The rooms were clean and beds were in decent shape. As noted in other reviews, a breakfast is served every morning (pancakes, cereal, and danish), which made it an even better value.
