5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We have stayed here 7 times since 2003 and always found the rooms to be very clean and well maintained. Double rooms are large and the beds comfy. The bathroom is well placed, so many motels have the sink in full view, a pet hate. The breakfast is cereal and toast, simple but adequate and the staff are friendly and helpful. The rates are reasonable, especially when compared to some of the other motels in Moab which have ratcheted up their rates over the last couple of years. We are booked in again for three days in October and looking forward to another stay.

We were travelling on a budget (with two dogs in tow!), and the Bowen Motel certainly fit the bill. The motel is very conveniently located on the main street in Moab, and is within easy walking distance of most downtown destinations. Rooms are small (as one would expect with such low room rates), but amenities are quite good for a motel in this price range, including new flat screen TVs and recently remodeled bathrooms. Rooms were also surprisingly clean for an inexpensive motel that allows dogs and caters to a decidedly dusty outdoorsy crowd! To top it off, the front desk staff was very helpful, including accommodating our after-hours arrival. The Bowen Motel is a great jumping-off point for your Arches/Canyonlands adventure!

I don't think you could ask for more for your money. The motel is perfectly located, 4 miles from the arches and on the main street in Moab. Yes it does get noisy, but so will all the hotels on Main Street. I still slept well. The room was clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable. They are in the process of remodelling at the moment, but I wouldn't have noticed.
I will definitely stay here again.

We stayed there for 2 night. Easy check-in, with nice staff. The family room was very big. Perfect for a big family and very clean. The pool was nice and clean. I was very happy with this pick. Plus it was a good value.

Our room was clean and large, the front desk person was very nice, and the location was good. Don't think you can ask for much more- considering the very reasonable price.

This place is great. I stayed here for 6 nights while working in Moab. The room is big and has a great AC unit, which is a must in Moab in the summer. The office staff were helpful and accommodating.
