We stayed here for 3 nights over the summer in order to get to all the sites. The place was definitely great for the price we payed. My kids enjoyed it and we slept very well. The location was good to get to where we needed to go and though not fancy did the trick.

We had a very short stay - came left, slept one night, left early. Everything we needed to rest was there. The motel is clean and in good condition.
Be aware that office is closed 11 pm to 7 am. We barely caught it open - luckily we called ahead and were informed. Receptionist was very helpful, offered maps of the area and shared current road statuses she heard from other travelers.

This is an older park-at-your-door style property that has been well maintained. Our overall experience was good and, with the cost considered, it was a good value. The room was spacious with good facilities: fridge, microwave, flat screen tv, adequate light. But the bed was soft, with springs that could be felt. And in our first floor unit, whenever someone walked across the floor in the room above, it sounded like the ceiling was going to collapse. Get a second floor room or stay in the one-storey section.

Great motel, clean walking distance to stores and restaurants. recently remodeled. Close to arches nat park, canyonlands nat park. And dead horse point state park. Take the night boat cruise !
The drive from denver via 128 can't be beat..

Room Tip: We chose a room with no 2nd floor above us , was very quiet and 40" hd TV was great at night

We spent three nights in Moab, and we quite pleased with this motel. It is clean, reasonably well appointed, and the location is excellent. We were able to walk to dinner and breakfast (although we did drive to the Moab Diner once or twice). There is a fine laundromat around the corner, as well. The price is quite reasonable for Moab.

We were pleasantly surprised by our room, based on initial outside appearance, because this is clearly an older hotel. However, considerable effort and expense has been made to renovate and remodel the rooms. The amenities include 40" TVs, fresh up to date bathrooms with thick large towels, a refrigerator, freezer and microwave. We had a booked a King sized suite so we also had two (albeit aging) recliners facing the TV. WiFi worked well and was complimentary.

Thank you for the great comments. Currently working on the outside to give it more up to date and fresher look but it wont be finished until next spring. I will work on the recliners, you're right about them aging but functional.

I stayed here 2 nights on a road trip. This place has everything you should need and is close to all amenities that Moab has to offer. The room I had was set back from the road and I was not affected by road noise, I think however the walls may be thin but that did not impede on my rest time. The room had a coffee maker and a full sized fridge with small freezer which was welcome. I was able to park outside my door which was convenient. The wifi was very good. I would return to stay here if I ever return to the area.
Oh there is a pool with loads of towels provided.

Thank you for the pleasant comments, they are always appreciated. Hearing that the Wi-Fi was very good is so relieving. We have been struggling lately trying to get it dialed in.
