Our scouting group of 11 adults and teens used the Watermelon House as our base of operations for a multi-day stay in the Moab area and visits to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Don't expect anything fancy, but the house is clean, beds are comfortable, and the AC and laundry were a welcome addition. The kitchen has no oven, but... More

This is a hostel where you get what you pay for with $12 a night for a shared room. The bathrooms are a bit grody, the sheets are a little threadbare and there's not a lot of utensils/cookware in the kitchen, though there was enough for me to cook my dinner. That being said, it has a great atmosphere and... More

I've stayed in hostels in Europe before and really liked the concept. They're very affordable, just enough for you to get a good night's rest, and you can always meet a lot of different interesting people from all over the world. That being said, the Lazy Lizard came through for us with their $12 dorm beds, not to mention even... More

Prior to my arrival I came to Trip Advisor and read the reviews and got a kick out of some of the reviews that seems to be expecting the Ritz Carlton service in a hostel. I can tell you this is basic, clean, friendly hostel. It seem to me the people running the hotel and the other guest were non-judgmental,... More

The hotels are very highly priced in moab and hence lady lizard provides an option within budget. This place is not easily seen from the highway, look for it carefully, if required call for directions. Owner is a nice fellow, ready to help and answer your queries. Cabins are small but cozy, beds are ok. The AC doesn't seem to... More

If you're traveling through Moab on a budget this is the place to stay. I stayed here a few times, in a dorm room and a private room, in the watermelon house across the street, both of which you can't go wrong with. Clean rooms, a relaxing vibe, and good company all around. They also provide dinner for a small... More

I do not recommend staying here and would not return. I would describe the place and cluttered and very run down. The kitchen in particular was very cluttered, and had an unfortunate smell. The long term residents, though nice enough, changed the overall atmosphere of the place- making it less appropriate for the tourist/backpacker. The bed in our room was... More

I got a room with my boyfriend here last minute as we didn't want to wander around in the dark looking for a campsite. The room we got was in a completely separate building (basically a house) across the highway. It was basic, but did the job. Very friendly staff. I would come back here.
