        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.

        Pretty good


        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.

        Great place


        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.

        ... fun.  Very wet we reached the end of our trip - a really fun day out.  Whoops I forgot! As usual the scenery did not disappoint, a wide murky Colardo wound its way through high red cliffs "awesome".  We did get one picture from the company photographer standing on the bank half way down. The awesome scenery theme continued with Karen, Roger and Josh going out once more into Arches National Park at dusk to chase the ...

        ... you would have to admit on a larger scale. The park consists of red sandstone of 2 types, Entrada sandstone in which most of the arches form and Navajo sandstone. Over the course of one hundred million years the relatively soft rock has been eroded by water, ice, wind, sandblasting and extreme temperatures into weird and wonderful shapes, pillars, and of course, arches of which there are 2000 in the 75,000 acre park. We ...

        ... quintessential Western Movie background. You can't help but look at the vast rock formations that sprout up out of the ground and expect to see John Wayne, Clint Eastwood or some other cowboy come riding round them, guns blazing! Of course there's no longer any cowboys here, in fact Monument Valley sits on Navajo lands too. There was a road that winds around the Monuments, we couldn't find it, but even if we had been able to we wouldn't have been able to take the hire car on ...

        We drove into the Canyonlands from the bottom. The bottom and the top do not connect by road. I really had meant to go in through the top but Google took me in the wrong way. We drove about 30 miles in and discovered that we were at the wrong place. We didn’t stay long and we headed out and then north to MOAB where we camped another couple of nights. The first thing ...

        ... the morning to 90s by midafternoon. Therefore, we decide to try to get an early start so we are not hiking during the hottest part of the day. We begin with Canyonlands. Canyonlands preserves 337,598 acres of colorful canyons, mesas, buttes, fins, arches and spires in the high desert. As you will see in the pictures, water and gravity have been the architects of this land sculpting layers of sedimentary rock into the amazing landscape we see today.
