“great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

I've stayed here several times and have always been pleased and comfortable.
The rooms are older but clean, charming and well kept. The motel itself is quiet and the staff is friendly and helpful. I have had to call them with changes to my reservation and they have been consistently helpful and accommodating. Located away from the main highway, but walkable to anywhere, it is most welcome at the end of the day.

There was a misunderstanding between us and the Apache staff with our booking. When we went to check-in, our reservation had been canceled and the motel was full, but Lorinda at the front desk was very apologetic and extremely helpful by booking us a new room with the same rast elsewhere in Moab. We were disappointed not to stay at the Apache because it looked like a really interesting place with a lot of character, but we may stay there next time we are in Moab. But regardless of where you stay, Moab is awesome.

This is not a new hotel, but the location is excellent (on the secondary main route through town) and the staff is so intent on being helpful that you feel like family. We were given shortcut directions to church, a description and location of Moab's three laundromats, a review of the classic burger and milkshake stand within walking distance of the motel, and were even loaned large trash bags to help us carry laundry. The bathroom had recently been remodeled and the beds were above average. The breakfast area is small but the food is decent. We would stay here again without hesitation should we ever stay in Moab again!

Room Tip: Don't let the age of this motel fool you. It's a great value for Moab!

If you just need a place to rest your head, the Apache Motel is a good deal. It's cute, old school and off the main road so you can get a decent nights sleep. You can tell the mattresses are getting old and they could invest in some new towels, but overall fine for a night or two.

Least expensive place in town, located off the main street. It was clean and dry. No problems with bed bugs or noise. Light continental breakfast in the lobby. You have a choice of pancakes, cereals and pastry. If all you looking for is a good night of sleep for a good price, this place will do just fine.

I used to live in Moab and now I try to make it down there as often as I can. Apache Motel has now become my go to destination if I'm not camping. It really is the best value in Moab. It's funky, it's charming, and best of all, Larinda at the front desk is a charming, friendly, hardworking staff member. My friends and I mainly chose Apache now because of her. It's an older property but it's got cool history. The beds are extremely comfortable, the rooms are quiet, and everything was super clean. We're going back next week, so get ready to tuck us in, Larinda!

Moab is a great town (like an Alpine ski resort, but without the snow) and the atmosphere is laid back, happy and sporty, but it’s also very seasonal, so there is a lack of hotel rooms for half the year but a lack of demand to build many more hotels, so it’s expensive. For a town so far away from a major airport, there are a lot of European tourists here – almost everyone we came across was British, Dutch or German and the town is hugely popular with those who have recently sent their kids off to university or college.

The Apache is a short 10 minute walk away from the main street and great value. The pool is small but a welcome bonus in a town that’s surrounded by mountains and gets very hot late in the afternoon. The breakfast pastries are filling and the staff were all helpful and friendly. The rooms are basic but serviceable.

For the Brits – an episode of Birds of a Feather was filmed here, a fact apparently wasted on most hotel guests (note to Americans - to Brits, John Wayne has nothing on Sharon and Tracy!)!
