“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We stayed at the Gonzo Inn for three nights the first week of September. I had looked through several hotel websites planning our trip and the Gonzo just looked clean and fresh and that is just how it is in person. Our room was spotless and so comfortable. I love how they carried their theme throughout the Inn with quirky little décor items that were quite cheery. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. They even took care of booking a couples massage for us at the Crystal Spa. The breakfast was better than the average continental breakfast and constantly being restocked and kept tidy so you felt like you were the first guest there. The location of the Gonzo was ideal for us as we had booked activities with the Moab Adventure Center and could just walk down one block and cross the street. It is also centrally located to walk through town and enjoy the shops and variety of restaurants. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Gonzo Inn and hope that we can return soon!

From the minute you walk in the door and are greeted by a lifesize statue of a greyhound with a baseball cap, you know that this isn't any ordinary hotel. The reception itself looks like a bar with stools...and the lizard motif was everywhere (like the huge sign just off main street which points the way to the hotel). The receptionist was so welcoming and helpful. The jug of lemonade and fresh cookies were nice touches, after our long day's drive to reach Moab.
We stayed in large room just off the pool, complete with kitchenette. Everything was modern, clean and I spent one of the best nights of my whole trip in an extremely comfortable bed. The shops and restaurants were minutes away on foot. I liked being off the main street yet close enough to wal . Their varied and generous breakfast is included in the price. Wish we could have stayed longer than one night!

Room Tip: Check on the price of a suite versus two rooms if you are travelling with 3-4 people. Our room on th...

We've been to Moab a couple of times before and had not been able to get rooms here - this time we were lucky - we managed to book the Gonzo Suite.

It was a great space - two beds, two baths and some indoor and outdoor living space.

It was very clean and the staff were very helpful (particularly as we had to take my Dad to the local hospital - and they directed us there).

It is just a short walk from the main road - meaning it is quiet, but near the restaurants (a very short walk).

I hope to be back in the future - but minus the trip to hospital.

We screwed up our reservation at Best Western, so the girl there referred us to The Gonzo Inn. This was nice as it was late after a day of driving from Vail. Don't get scared by the look of the dog mannequin in the middle of the lobby with the shorts an sun hat. The room was great, even though we had no choice, we were right off the lobby, as that. W what was left. It had a separate bedroom and eating area with a hide-a-bed. This is great with a young child. Feels like freedom when we get a door on vacation!

Seeing that I screwed up the reservation at Best Western, I was expecting my wife to nix this place when she went in, as it is a bit different. The large showers are glazed concrete, reminding me of high school!

The continental breakfast was one f e better on our trip.

The location is one block west of the Main Street, which makes it very convienient for shopping.

We'd stay again.

Room Tip: Don't get the first couple of room off of the lobby...unless you are expecting to use the pool t...

If you are staying in Moab for any length of time, absolutely stay at the Gonzo Inn. From the overall cleanliness, wonderful location (off of the main road but we walked to everything), clean and well-kept pool,very helpful staff and great breakfast the Gonzo made our stay ( two adults two kids age 11/13) so memorable. We felt like we were staying in a home rather than a hotel, just can't say enough good things!

Our room was the very first one on the ground level next to the noisy ice machine but thankfully it did not disturbed our sleep. I loved all the comfy pillow and linens. Breakfast was average nothing to write home about. I liked the huge unusual shower. The sink was awkward to use since there was a towel bar right in the front. Small sink area. Small supply of towels given in bathroom. The metal sculpture was dynamic and cool. Receptionist area and breakfast area very nice bad out of the ordinary. I do think it is overpriced since the rooms are small.

We really enjoyed staying here. It included a nice continental breakfast with the best coffee I've ever had at a place that includes breakfast. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable with high ceilings and plenty of room. They also make the best cookies in the afternoon for guests and we were sure to be there before they were gone each day. I's in a great location and they not only had seating indoors but also outdoors for breakfast. We took advantage of that and ordered pizza and had a wonderful meal with friends on the patio in the evening. The pool was nice and had plenty of shade for sitting and relaxing. The staff was helpful and friendly. We'd come back.
