Absolutely fantastic stay. We booked two nights in a king suite for our stay in Moab. Our view was amazing. I’m always a bit skeptical of hotels that post photos of the views from their rooms. I always just assume they post a photo of the absolute best view from the entire hotel and the reality is just disappointing. Not the case here! Our room (105) had an amazing view. The room was very well appointed, the towels were plush, and they had filtered drinking water faucets in both the bathroom sink and kitchenette sink. We also appreciated the ceiling fan, since the weather was too cool for the A/C but too warm for heat.
The hotel is located on a very scenic byway, so our drive from Moab to the hotel was just gorgeous. Red Cliffs Lodge is a bit out of the way compared to other hotels in Moab, but the view is worth it. It took us about 25 minutes to drive to Arches National Park from the hotel along the windy road that runs parallel to the Colorado River.
Just a few very minor issues. I wish they had a better sign indicating where registration was. There are several buildings on the property, and we ended up walking into the Winery thinking it was where we registered for the hotel. When you turn onto the property, turn left. Drive down the long gravel path and the registration will be on your right. I also found the lighting in the suite to be kind of dim at night.
We also had an issue with our door. A few hours into our stay, we discovered our door wouldn’t latch properly. It was no big deal as long as we were in the room because we could deadbolt it. But when leaving, we had no way of locking the door because it wouldn’t latch closed. The front desk said that maintenance had left for the day and they’d send someone by the next day. But we were planning on being at Arches by 6AM the next morning for sunrise. So they said they’d send someone over around 5AM. I was a little annoyed that they didn’t offer us a different room, (or at least say that they would offer us another room if the property was fully booked). No one ever came at 5AM to fix the door. Luckily after a lot of finagling with the door, we managed to get it locked from the outside. By the time we arrived back at the hotel that evening, our door had been fixed. Not sure when, but it was fixed.
We also had dinner one night at the hotel, and we thought it was excellent and reasonably priced.
