Historical Traveler Reviews Riverside Inn Moab
Noisy bud Okay
17 juli 2004,
We have stayed three nights at the Best Inn Moab. This hotel is close to Arches National Park. The rooms are clean and the rates reasonable. The pool and tub are okay. The service is friendly with helpfull people. We had 3 rooms next to the lobby bud the Icemachine and sodamachine's outside are noisy, and the airco in the room are noisy to. So ask for rooms at the backside of the hotel and away from the lobby. Breakfast is oke, bud it was crowded in the small breakfastroom because the hotel was totally booked.
We take the afternoon rafting trip on the Colorado river with OARS and that was great, and perfect organized.
Very convenient and good value
Stayed three nights at the Best Inn, before and after a river rafting trip. It is very convenient for Arches National Park, rooms were clean and the rates are very reasonable. There is small outdoor pool and tub which are great in the heat. Only slight niggle is that the air-con in our rooms was quite noisy if you are not used to it.
Good place to stay
stopped by Moab on the way to Las Vegas - Arches NP was worth the small sidetrip. Best Inn was very good, clean, purified water, pool, good location etc..... VERY GOOD VALUE and generally good place to stay...
Lives up to it's name
Just returned from a 2 week trip to southeast Colorado and Utah. Stayed at several hotels along the way. The Best Inn in Moab did not disappoint us. The Inn and it's rooms were nice and clean. The refrigerator, internet, and complimentary laundry soap were nice additions. Breakfast was adequate - had better - had worst. A little lacking in variety. The pool and hot tub area was welcoming. Excellent water temperature and view. Could use cleaning twice a day vs. once - as the winds tend to blow in dirt and uninviting litter. All and all a restful place to stay.
On the plus side:
a. Clean room
b. Light and airy
c. Good breakfast
d. Okay pool
e. Moab is an incredible place
On the minus side:
a. Noise from the TV in the lobby drifting up to the room - I had to ask twice for this to be turned off. The staff were really polite though.
b. Its a bit out of town
Overall I'd recommend a stay here but ask for an upstairs room away from the lobby. If you want a good dinner try out the "Desert Bistro" in town which was first rate.
Poor management - refused to honor my reservation
I visited Arches NP on Memorial Day weekend and had serious car problems as I pulled into Moab. Most of the hotels were full and filling up fast. I made a reservation at the Best Inn in their last room. At that point, we stopped searching for a hotel room.
When we arrived at the hotel, we learned that the hotel manager called the desk worker and told her not to give us the room because she needed to give it to someone else at another hotel.
The time that we lost after making our 'reservation', cost us the opportunity to find another room.
I had to have my car towed out of town (100 miles) because there was no where for me to stay while my car was being repaired.
Make a reservation here at your own risk. You cannot count on the reservation being honored when you arrive.
The Best Inn is also managed by the same mangement as the Days Inn.
Best Inn recommended & good value
Best Inn, Moab, UT Stayed for two nights, Sept 8 and 9th 2003. Clean, fairly new and convienent to Arches National Park, but necessary to drive to the Main St area for shopping/dining. Breakfast was the basic free cereal, toast, pastry and juice. Denny's located across the street. Would recommend this hotel and was a good value.
Jim, executive administratpr at National Louis University and Christine, H.R. Director, have stayed at this hotel for the last 8 years. We have seen several owners come and go, but the place remains unchanged. Clean, neat and great service. Just on the outskirts of town, lovely view and right at the foot of the Sunset Grill. Best of both worlds!
Simply the best
We went to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in Spring 2003 and stayed at this inn for two nights. What a deal. We paid $60 a night, the hotel is nearly brand new, located at the northern end of town, just 4 miles from Arches National Park. In other places you would almost have to pay at least twice as much for this kidn of hotel. When I go back to Moab I will definitely stay there again.
Clean, Convenient, Comfortable & Quiet
I have stayed at Best Inn Moab with my wife and daughter every April for the past 3 years. i recommend it highly. The rates are reasonable, it is clean & quiet, and I've always found the beds to be comfortable. It is located just down the hillside from one of Moab's best restaurants. It is also one of the closest hotels to the entrance of Arches National Park.
The owner/manager is friendly and makes a sincere effort to accommodate the needs of individual guests.

... with a fear of heights to pass. Casey hugs the side of the cliff and leads the way.
What we both found very interesting was the number of Asian women emerging from giant tour busses and carrying umbrellas up the trail. Additionally, some were wrapped head-to toe in light fabric of one sort or another. I found it a bit comical to see some of these women dress in their finery with umbrellas on this rocky, high desert trail. Casey even spotted one woman ...

Travelling down a residential area not far from the high street we were feeling a bit worried that we had made a big mistake coming here but we saw the signs for guest parking and hoped we'd found the right place.

The only way to hike between and amongst the sandstone fins, spires, and arches of the Fiery Furnace section of the park is by this Ranger led hike. When the sun is shining, some of these narrow passage ways we ...

The desert look and wide foothills are sure a change from the mountains and cliffs. We stop at one of the viewpoints for lunch and remember stopping at the same one in 2012 on our way back from Alaska. Hasn't changed much.
The foothills in this area are awesome and cars look like specks. I have a video that has a ...
