I chose this property while traveling last summer as it was more of a luxury accommodation that advertised to be 'dog friendly'.
Its about a 15 minute drive outside of Moab and the setting is absolutely beautiful along a river with high red cliffs in the backdrop.
This is a sprawling ranch property set up like a motel where you drive up to your individual room (all single story). I had a pet friendly room near the main building that houses the reception/restaurant and museum which was convenient.
This is a very quiet place but it does have a wine tasting room closer to the main road which draws in non overnight guests. There is also a horse stable.
Upon arrival I was asked to sign some forms that indicated my dog could not be in the common areas, my dog could not be left in the room nor could my dog be left in the car (or animal control would come and take the dog and I would incur a fine). My dog was to stay in dog designated areas and was not allowed to be off leash in ANY area. My dog could not swim in the river either.
When I questioned some of these rules, the manager said oh no, its okay if you leave your dog on the patio of your room...yet the form I was signing said to the contrary.
I was paying extra and staying way out of my way for my dog friendly room yet she had no freedoms whatsoever.
I would say this property is Dog Tolerable -- not dog friendly.
As for the room -- nice spacious bath with tub/shower combo, small kitchenette, indoor seating area and sofa, outside patio with seating for four overlooking river. Decor is southwestern with tile paver floors. Closet was an incredibly small amoire that would not have accommodated a weekends worth of clothes for one person.
Food in Restaurant is quite good.
There is a pool/jacuzzi area and a gym and a nice large pay laundry facility.
There is a small clean playground for children.
Things to enjoy:
Restaurant with the large outdoor dining deck.
Wine Tasting room/gift shop.
Charming Western Museum.
Local sights near and around Moab.
This property has almost no cell service and intermittent internet.
