We stayed at the Mt Peale Inn twice. The first time was a great experience so we decided to stay here again when we made another trip to visit Moab. Unfortunately, the second time was horrible.
The owners, Lisa and Teague, were inhospitable. This was a shock to us because the first time we visited they were friendly and helpful. This time around they were terse and cold. Our party consisted of five people, one of which had a birthday so a friend and I each sent presents to the Inn a few days in advance. We both called and emailed ahead of time to notify them--none of our calls or emails were answered. When we finally arrived, they made no mention of our packages. When asked, they went in the back and got one and claimed to have never received the other. And that was that.
The first day we were there, Teague came by and asked if we wanted breakfast. A couple of us were interested so she said to swing by in the morning. When we did she was surprised to see us and said she hadn't prepared enough food and turned us down. Huh?
A few other things that bothered us: they don't allow bikes in the cabins. We each ride expensive bikes ($4000+) and didn't feel comfortable leaving them out. They offer free wireless internet but only in the main cabin, which would be fine if not for the fact that a few times we went they were closed when it was still during business hours. Also, they're a bit cheap there--the first time we visited we had breakfast everyday. They make just one muffin per person and no more. Oh, and they allot just two rolls of toilet paper per cabin, regardless of length of stay or number of people. I'm sorry, but I'm a huge proponent of adequate wiping. Needless to say, our weeklong trip with five people and two nights of burritos for dinner necessitated a trip to the grocery store for a TP run.
Some pluses: The cabins are nice and clean. The kitchens are well-equipped. The location is amazing--the mountain backdrop is beautiful and it's about 45 minutes away from Moab, which means no noise and no tourists.
Overall, I give our first stay 3 stars and our second stay 1 for an average of two stars.
Oh, and they don't allow dogs which mega sucked because they would have had such a wonderful time hiking in Moab.
