“Wonderful hotel, great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2010

I found the Gonzo Inn using trip advisor because I liked the fact it looked a bit different from the usual Best Westerns etc. On arrival that was what I got! It's a cool, quirky sort of hotel, different from the norm. That said, the staff were attentive, the rooms clean and more than big enough. The fridge in the room was a nice touch for us too. The pool was great when we needed a break from hiking in the 85 degree heat! Breakfast was ok, nothing much, but enough to get you started. Location is fab in Moab. Minutes walk from shops, restaurants, bars etc. I never had a problem finding a parking space outside our room either. It was also quiet. We loved the cool, almost outdoor style shower it had in the room, it was huge! Only drawback was the coat hangers in the room were really old style metal which stuck out, and twice I caught my arm on them, which really hurt. They have them also in the bathroom which is fine, so why have more inside the room in a awkward place! But that's the only real drawback to the Gonzo in my opinion! We'd happily stay again should we get to Moab again...and we do have unfinished business with False Kiva in Canyonlands!!!

1 block off a main street, 2 blocks from central. Great location. Good rooms, VERY nice pool. Fridge in room. Breakfast OK. They even served up at 6AM when we needed to go mountain bike riding early.

Gonzo inn was a good treat after a several days of rough adventure in the Four Corner canyons. The decor is unique with wooden beams in the ceiling (as if we were in a cottage) and the shower area was also nice. A few problems we find during our stay: 1. there aren't a lot of parking spaces, there always seems to be one or two left, but not a whole lot. Maybe it was fully booked when we're there, 2. shallow bathroom sink, watch out if anything gets wet, because that shallow and small basin will make the counter flooded. 3. morning lawn mowing noise - the last day of our visit, we would have wanted to relax before we hit Canyonlands and the wild southwest, but the lawn mowing machine woke us up. Maybe it was from the adjacent building, but it was heard from the room i stayed. Nonetheless, it is a clean, good-valued hotel, with internet access, (touch of civilization), decent, albeit not impressive, breakfast, and well above average (but not beyond par) hospitality. Oh, did I mention no-frill? good. Last not but least, the backdrop of the hotel is a magnificent. It was beautiful looking outside of the window. That alone makes some of the downsides compensated. If we go out to Moab, we will probably go back to Gonzo. Wait for us!

There are cheaper places in Moab but none compare to the Gonzo Inn. Its a one off and unique hotel with its own style and quirkely decorated with something different catching you eye all the time. Bed was real comfy and the suite was well equipped. The pool and spa were a well come relief to the heat. Cost $169 for one night but well worth it. Close to all amenities.

We have stayed in Moab several times, however this was our first at the Gonzo Inn. Excellent room by pool. Very quiet and secluded, but moments from shops and places to eat. Next time we visit Moab I know where will will stay.

The Gonzo Inn was modern, comfortable and complete with a pool, hot tub, and free breakfast. I very much enjoyed the huge showers that I don't even have at my house and the big rooms. This was great for our family of 5, that usually has trouble fitting comfortably. The stay was relaxing and convenient but nothing that stands out in my mind out of a series of hotel's. Breakfast was self serve and nice for us that it was free. They also had a cute gift/t-shirt shop for anyone interested.

We stayed at the Gonzo Inn as part of a river rafting trip sponsored by a Moab company; and we felt very lucky to have been booked there! Our room was spacious for our family of four, with a living/kitchen area and a generous hallway near the bathroom for storage. The decor was unique, my favorite was the toilet paper holder made of a bolt, and the room was pristine. Loved our view of the pool (which our boys loved) from the balcony and found the staff very helpful and friendly. No rush here--just pleasant people and lovely ambience.
