“Best Motel 6 we have stayed at”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We have just finished traveling coast to coast and back with our very large dog. Since Motel 6 allows pets without a charge, we frequently stayed there on the trip. The quality ranged from bad to just habitable. We were surprised when we stopped in Moab and found this motel was very nice with pretty good curb appeal (for American motels). It's built like most of the newer motels with one main entrance leading to all the rooms. The construction was substantial and it even had a large, modern elevator.

The "just fair" stuff: Stepping out of the elevator on the second floor, the hallway carpet is a dated blue color. Rooms have the same carpet and while it once was OK, it looks '50s now. Our room had two queens so was large enough we did not feel cramped. Bath was good and had a bathtub. Free Wi-Fi without password but limited to about 50Kbs.

The pool and spa were very attractive since most M6's have pools that are in disrepair. Climate control was excellent without any noise. Beds were comfortable. TV worked well. Night stand had a clock radio, a first for most 6's.

The very best is last. When we checked in, the rates had just gone down for winter that day from $80/night to $40 with seniors getting in for $35. This place is super for $35. We loved it, our dog loved it.

Room Tip: Huge empty area for walking dogs out back. Sabaku Sushi is a good spot for dinner, Low light, not co...

So disappointed in this place. The room we had was loud! We heard doors slamming water pipes banging and squeaking. The AC was loud too! The beds and bedding were old and uncomfortable. Bathroom fan wasn't working. The lobby was dark. Not a comfortable stay at all. The atmosphere was horrible. Expensive too! Not worth it.

Thank you for your feedback. We have made improvements since your stay in September 2012. Motel 6 rates are priced below other national brands within each local market. Our rates may be higher than other Motel 6, but it is still lower than other national brands in Moab.

Several years ago when it had just opened, (can't remember what year) we went there for a weekend and it wasn't too bad. We went for one day on Sept 13th and it looked a bit more beat up and can't remember the walls and ceilings being paper thin. My gosh there must have been a "two ton tillie" above us cause every step he or she took read about 7.5 on the richter scale! And guy next to us had some noisy bodily functions! And the rooms are small and the icemaker in the hall didn't work. If you need an iron, you have ask at the desk and they'll lend you one. Oh, and the bathroom fan (if it had one) didn't work. The one good thing I can say, that it seemed to be clean, so thats good, but other than that, eh, I'm trying going to a different place next time. By the way, Moab is a beautiful place, check it out sometime.

We stayed here for two nights as we visited Canyonlands and Arches National parks. The motel was OK. It's at the beginning of Moab, you can get to Arches in 5 minutes. Next to the motel there is a Wendy's restaurant where you can buy good food. The motel also have a small pool which is for bathing but not swimming. The water was sandy so we didn't go in. We also experienced a sandstorm on one of the evenings so I can imagine why the pool was sandy, As far as I remember this is the closest motel to the parks. It takes about 10 minutes to get to a bigger supermarket but a gas station is also next door. We received a coupon with which we could get some discount from our breakfast in one of the pancake restaurant's in the city.

We decided to take a risk. NOT WORTH IT! When we made our reservation early in the day I was told we could have a room on the third floor the pet free option since my daughter has allergies to some pets. When I checked in, we got a room On the second floor. When told her I wanted pet free room, she told me the second floor was also pet free.... So we took the room. The room was clean, but smelt like dog! When came home from dinner there was a dog on the second floor. We will not stay there again.

Cheapest in town, but one can see why. Small rooms, uncomfortable beds and an air conditioning unit that sounds like a jet engine. It rumbles the whole room and really only puts out cold air during the night. With how the room is set up, the fan blows right on your face as you sleep. The hot tub has bubbles, but they come from holes drilled in the seat, so they tickle right up your back-side...not enjoyable. Anyway, it's convenient to Arches NP, which is nice and the staff is friendly.

I was surprised when I entered inside, is it Motel 6? Moab is a very costly area, I booked 3 months before for $70/night and the day when we arrived it was $114 w/o tax. Do an early reservation. In a single word, it's excellent. The Arches NP is 3.5 mile north of the motel. I will strongly suggest everyone to stay here if you are visiting Moab.
