“A nice motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

Based on TA ratings, we decided to try this motel that charged less than half of the other chain motels in town. We found a large room that was clean, a very good bathroom, comfortable beds, excellent heating, Wi Fi, coffee maker ,etc. Staff was very pleasant and cooperative.
There is no breakfast, which for the price was understandable.
I would definitely return without any hesitation. What we saved paid for a good dinner for two that night.

First the positives...the room was very clean; the motel is adjacent to the Moab greenbelt and is dog friendly and quiet; the front desk staff are friendly and accommodating; price is cheap

The negatives...rooms are dark with very poor lighting; one of the lamps in our room had a frayed cord and began shorting out while we were there (!); combined bathroom/kitchenette sink is just weird and kind of gross; everything is just old, worn and dark

The owners state that the motel was remodeled in 2007 or so. It appears very little has been done to the property since that time. If some updating were done, including improved lighting and a general freshening up this property could charge $20 more per night given it's excellent location.

Decent enough to crash. Price fits the rooms. Overall feel is dark and cold with the gray paint, but it was comfortable for the night. I would stay here in the spring and fall when there is more natural light. Front desk staff are friendly and I believe they do care.

the motel is situated off the main drag, so it's very quiet. the room is a bit tragicomic. it has a stripmall office feel to it - from the acoustic tile to the wall-to-wall carpeting combined with the typical old motel look and feel. we only had one little window providing natural light. every time you flushed the toilet, it sounded like a rocket ship taking off. we had one half of adjoining rooms, so unfortunately in any motel, it means hearing the next door folks pretty clearly. but not to be entirely negative, the room and bathroom were a good size. there was plenty of storage and surface area to spread out. the staff were all really nice and helpful.

We've stayed at this great little motel in Moab several times. It's our go to place for our trips to Moab and all the great outdoor recreation around there. It's a bargain on price, clean, modern rooms that are pet friendly. The owners are like old friends and very helpful with local info and tips where to eat, directions etc. We recommend this Inn as the best place to stay in Moab.

Room Tip: Downstairs is always easier than hauling your stuff to the second floor.

We had a group of hikers here in May, 2013. We had 6 rooms, and were very happy with them. They had refrigerators (I think one room did not).
We loved the location. Off the Main drag of Moab (which I've stayed on three times, and tends to be very noisy). This is a block away; and right next to a stream; that has a paved walking path. Nice.
I don't think you will find a better value; with a good quality/large & updated rooms, in Moab. It was clean. The staff were helpful.

Room Tip: The only rooms to avoid would be the front facing rooms (face a road). It had a pool that was on one...

We stayed here in May and were very pleased. The staff was helpful at check in. It is right downtown so you can walk to dinner locations. Nothing special about the rooms-it looked like a typical hotel room but it was clean. The pool was refreshing and clean. They have lots of great books about the area you can read in the lobby. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Moab.
