... again. Well our trip of a lifetime all together has come to an end, and it has been the most wonderful experience. At times during the past 7 weeks, it has been very busy & noisy, whether in the airport, restaurants, theme parks, national parks, but we have loved it all. We have created attention wherever we have gone, and their final flight was no exception. After checking in at ...
... and set off for Moab. We dropped in to our first American diner for lunch-a chain restaurant called Denny's. It was delicious!!!! The service was great-even these two little old ladies having their Sunday lunch next to us wished us safe travels as we were leaving, it was so darn cute!!! The people here in the States have been amazingly friendly-we've been welcomed with open arms and had nothing but positive experiences. Not what we were expecting to ...
... Shafer Trail verwees. Ergens hadden we gelezen dat deze route interessant was maar veel hadden we er niet over opgezocht. Het eerste stuk was verhard en we kwamen een truck tegen, dus het zou wel meevallen. Toen de weg naar beneden dook en veranderde in stoffig pad met plots diepe afgronden die ons een blik gunden op de honderden meter lager gelegen vallei en langs de andere kant de muren van het Coloradoplateau, zochten we naar een plaats om terug te keren. Die vonden we een ...
... the shapes and colors. Again FB friends can enjoy the 360 degrees picture I posted on FB. I think I took around 300 pictures on these 2 days we hiked here in Bryce. I can say that Bryce Canyon is definitely the highlight of the trip sofar and we’ve had many highlights on this trip already. Next day we take the scenic highway 12 and 24 to go to Moab where we will visit Arches National Park. The first part of the trip is indeed a very scenic drive where ...
Tak też uczyniłem. Zatankowałem i wróciłem. Zacząłem od łuku Delicate Arch, ale nie pokusiłem się o podejście pod sam łuk, bo musiałbym znowu zasuwać po odkrytym terenie przez 5 kilometrów. Wybrałem wariant dla mięczaków i wyposażony w teleobiektyw i statyw wdrapałem się na punkt widokowy Upper Delicate Arch Viewpoint. Też nie było łatwo - na górze ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sunflower Hill Moab
A great place to stay
We stayed in the Look Out room at Sunflower Hill. The room was spotless, incredibly comfortable and the facilities in the Inn were superb. Lots of guide books including reviews from previous guests on local facilities and attractions, a free laundry, complimentary refreshments (and cookies, M&Ms and peanuts), honesty drinks/snacks and all in a lovely immaculately presented yet comfortable home. The pool and hot tub looked inviting although we were short of time and didn't get a chance to try them out! We would happily have stayed longer in Moab and at the Sunflower Hill Inn.
My sister and I stayed 4 nights at this wonderful B&B. We stayed in the Garret room which had 2 separate bedrooms with doubles and a small daybed. Plus a small porch in the coach house. Very quiet and comfortable. Great breakfast, good parking, pleasant staff, beautiful grounds, pool, hottub, available fridge and microwave nearby, cable and the most comfortable bedding I have had in a room, ever. Will definitely return there on our next trip.
A wonderfull inn!
From the charming rooms to the beautiful grounds to the kind service the Sunflower Inn impressed us greatly. We would certainly return for the excellent combination of privacy and thoughtful care. Breakfast was wonderful and included a great variety of items. It was clear that great thought was given to the landscaping, the decor, and the touches that also made us feel like guests who could make themselves right at home - a "pantry" refrigerator and water and treats available as a common "honor bar" were nice and homey. The breakfast room and adjacent patio were lovely. Each staff member, housekeepers and innkeepers seemed to have our comfort as a pleasant priority. We would definitely return to an inn that combined for us the best of relaxed luxury and country comfort.
On A Quiet Side Street
A lovely Bed and Breakfast in a stunning locale. Moab is a fantastic spot and the Sunflower is a charming and commodious inn. Beautifully appointed with antiques, a small pool surrounded by a manicured garden and a porch complete with rocking chairs. Delightful place, I shall return.
My wife and I stayed at Sunflower Hill one night while touring Colorado & Utah on our honeymoon in August, 2005. Sunflower Hill boasts a AAA 4-Diamond rating and it is well deserved. Our room was larger than we expected, spotlessly clean, genuinely comfortable and breakfast was very good. The Inn Keeper was cordial, helpful and respectful of guest's privacy. Our only regret is that we did not have time to extend our stay. Moab, Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park are all delightful and we regret that we rushed through the area as quickly as we did. If you are driving in from the east, take the Inn's suggestion, hop off I-70 at Cisco and drive the scenic route. Based solely on mileage, this will add 45 minutes or so to the drive time but don't be fooled by that. It added 2 hours to our drive and would have added more had I not run out of 35mm film. It is a spectacular drive and you will stop to photograph the red rock mesas and cliffs lining the Colorado River. The temptation to dawdle in such surroundings simply cannot be resisted. Two things about the Inn impressed us most. The first is that the grounds are lush. Lawns and landscaping are meticulously groomed and offer an oasis in this stark desert landscape. Walking through the grounds is noticeably cooler than walking elsewhere around town. The other is that Moab is built on tourism and there are numerous venders competing for tourists' attention. The Inn provides frank and honest recommendations about where to dine and which outfitter to use if you want to raft the Colorado River or bounce over red rocks in a Hummer. We found this, and the Innkeeper's ability to secure reservations for us on short notice, very helpful. If there is an equally nice lodging in Moab, we didn't see it. This is definitely the up-scale place to stay. When we booked the room, I thought the price was a bit high but we discovered that Sunflower Hill offers good value in this market in which Motel 6 commands $99.99/night. We intend to return and will stay at Sunflower Hill when we do.
Best Place to Stay
Great rooms, delicious jacuzzi bath, lovely gardens and pool and just about every amenity imaginable...walking distance to restaurants...we'll go back!
Loved this B&B
Stayed one night at the Sunflower Hill B&B and had the best night's sleep of our entire two week trip. Super comfortable beds, clean large airy rooms thoughtfully decorated; we stayed in the newly renovated house.
We took advantage of the laundry facilities and enjoyed the lovely sprawling garden.
Many top restaurants nearby; had a great meal at the Desert Bistro.
Breakfast was good and the service was thoughtful and attentive.
Would definitely stay there again.
A find in the desert
When you think B&B, the Moab desert may not pop into your mind, but it will after a stay here. We have stayed at luxury B&B's and inns around the world and Sunflower Hill ranks with the best. We were two couples and stayed 4 nights and could have stayed more. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The facility an oasis in the desert. The location is perfect, a short stroll into town for dinner.
We all felt it truly deserved it's 4 star rating, except my wife who felt that any place that had M&M's flowing 24 hours a day deserves 5 stars.
We visit Moab regularly and have stayed everywhere, but nothing compares to this luxury inn. It is absolutely amazing. Awesome rooms with balconies, overstuffed beds, spectacular garden views, and gourmet breakfasts...who could want more?
Probably the best that Moab can offer
Moab is a very tiny community with a few decent restaurants but not much charm. Sunflower HIll offers rooms in a quiet location, off the main drag. Let's face it, no amount of LLBEAN furnishings are going to make the rooms any larger. If you're claustrophobic you might want to stay somewhere else. The house cleaning staff was rather stingy with the towels and there wasn't a lot of vacuuming going on. The breakfast is okay but served rather late 7:30 if you'd like some coffee to go with your hike. Staff is friendly. There are no phones in the room. I would rate this establishment three stars althought is has four diamonds from AAA. It's one of the decent places to stay in town if that's saying very much.
