Let me preface by saying this: if you're looking for luxury accommodations, you won't find it in Moab. There's no Las Vegas here, just a place to put your head for the night. Which is why most people are here. To get some perspective on Moab, Denny's has a good review on tripadvisor. So if you can adjust your expectations to that, the Kokopelli was a fine place to stay. We spent a few nights at the Inn Towner, one of 4 condos just off the main strip. It was pricier than the motel ($125/night) but we wanted the extra room.
What we liked: They were large condos with full kitchens; we were able to cook meals which was great. Freshly painted, happy colors, and tasteful furniture. They welcomed our dog, and had a dog bowl waiting in the kitchen. They did pretty good with little touches: dishes from IKEA, thicker bathroom towels, nice bedding in the bedroom, etc. We mostly liked the beds (I thought they were a little soft, but the hubby thought they were just right). The grounds were kept very well, they seem to care about the place.
What we'd change: The brown shaggy carpet in the living and bedroom. Moab is a dusty/muddy/dirty place, most people are there to Jeep or bike. It's hard to keep something like that clean. Bathtub was older, shower was super low flow. Dishes needed rewashing, no bags lining the garbage pail (ants showed up), coffee maker still had old coffee and filter/grinds in. It's surface clean, which is fine, just don't look too closely or in the corners..it's not a brand new hotel.
Not sure if I'd stay here again, the kitchen was awesome to have, but we didn't spend much time indoors. We'll probably choose a less expensive place, but would recommend the Kokopelli if you need roomier lodgings while in Moab.
