I made the mistake of letting my girlfriend surprise me with our hotel arrangements for Moab. She's a brilliant girl with a great heart, but when it comes to picking B&B's she needs a bit more training. So, exhausted after driving 6 hours from SLC, another hour driving to and back from somebody's middle-of-nowhere house that was advertised as a ResortAndSpa (they did have a hot tub...) she was ready to crash at any of the dirty or mediocre motels scattered around Moab.
To quote The Bard, I was once bitten, twice shy. I wasn't ready to give up and pick a grubby motel and regret it for the next four days - I wanted the best spot in Moab. We drove to every single motel in the city proper - the Best Western, the Ramada, a dozen ambitiously named 'lodges' that looked more like trailer parks... and we were ready to give up and go back to the balcony-free Best Western when I remembered seeing the Gonzo Inn.
What an oasis of hospitality in this town of rest stops. This motel was everything a hotel should be- the staff was friendly and sympathetic, the rooms were comfortable and inviting, the whole property was immaculate, the beds and pillows were comfortable, the shower was big enough for at least 2 people, and the staff was friendly and helpful.
As far as I'm concerned, this is the only place to stay in Moab.
