“Old but nice and worth a stay”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We spent one night in the Apache motel. It's an old motel with a lot of history to it. Nevertheless - or maybe because of it - we had a great stay. We checked in around 9 pm. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. Of course the rooms could use a little makeover but that's nothing we were bothered by. To our surprise the breakfast was more than we hoped for. There's also a pool which we didn't use. It was old too but looked okay. If you want to spend a night at a reasonable price this place is definitely worth a look.

An old fashioned motel that is passed its sell by date. Cant complain too much as it was clean and we slept well, but the room looks manky and old. There are better value places out there and if John Wayne was still alive this would be the last place he would stay!

This hotel was the 5 star of Moab a long, long time ago but if you are looking for a bargain and a clean room with no "star" frills, this is the place to stay in Moab. Is it dated? Yes, but again, it is surprisingly adequate. We stayed two nights in the month of September 2012 and both nights there was no vacancy in the motel. Our reservation was made months prior to our visit and when we got there, we checked in like clockwork. All in all, a pleasant stay, with no frills but nevertheless clean and comfortable. And, we had an enjoyable time spending our savings on other things in Moab like restaurants, jet boat trips on the Colorado and visits to Dead Horse Point and Arches National Park. Give the Apache a try if you are not hooked on amenities.

We stayed here for our honeymoon 7 years ago, and have just returned from a 5 night stay for our wedding anniversary. We returned for sentimental reasons, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay again.
I totally accept some of the comments on here about a need for updating - yes, the rooms could probably do with a slight make-over, maybe new tvs and a lick of paint, and the pool area needs a bit of weeding!
However, don't let this put you off if you're looking for a clean, friendly, well-priced place to stay in Moab. The rooms were nice and clean (no smell at all), the pool itself was spotlessly clean and the absolute perfect temperature (we loved having a few hours to chill by the pool every afternoon after a long morning hike) and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. The breakfast offered is also fantastic (waffles so yummy!).
We will certainly return again when next visiting the area.

Even the chairs by the pool were broken, No landscaping and flower beds with weeds as tall as I am. Musty smelling little rooms that look like they have not been redone in 30 years! Spend $20 more and stay somewhere else. Never again for this couple!!!!

Room Tip: Just say NO!

Can't beat the price for what you get. Wee bit off the main drag so nice and quiet at night so you can get refreshed for more adventures that moab is a great base for. Very attentive staff who make u feel like an extended family.

Hotel rates in Moab are expensive, so this will not be a bargain in any city. Motel is several blocks off main street for quieter nights than most other motels though rooms face the street. Breakfast is bare bones cereal and pastry. They brag John Wayne stayed there and looks like they haven't renovated it since. Pool is small but OK.
