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.

... the sky, during a thunderstorm is not generally a good idea. We pushed on. The primitive path is so called due to the fact you have to do things like slide down giant rock faces to reach portions of the trail. This is sketchy in itself. Add to the mix a downpour of rain that makes said rocks slick and you've got a recipe for disaster. We made it through a few risky rock faces, mostly sliding on our butts, without incident. ...
... old looking at their unique formations. We were going to get groceries for dinner and josh and I decided, the heck with it, eating out the last two nights so we went to Moab Brewery... Good choice. Chris did his banana biking and went in the pool with Josh. Tom and Josh played pool. I tried to stay cool. Tommy sat with me for a while as I drove. We had a great conversation. Two things I learned on this trip. One, our country ...
... the drive. Since I had no cell phone reception in Ely and this hotel had no online reservation system, I had to book the hotel via email. This place was the cheapest, cutest and dog friendly I could find. The girl knew I was arriving late too. A couple from Holland tried to help me. All the phone #'s went back to the same voicemail system. Well I was out of luck and had to go find a 1 night stay somewhere else. I paid a little more then I wanted ...
... trail and made camp.
The drive over the ridge (the Waterpocket Fold - the main feature of Capitol Reef NP) and down through the Burr Trail Switchbacks is pretty impressive. Hit the main road (still dirt) - the Notom Road Scenic Backway - and headed north with the main range immediately to our west.
Stopped at Cedar Mesa campground which is a small pleasant campground in the NP and soon afterwards the road leaves the park ...
This is the second half of my day in Moab. I went to the McDonald's to do some publishing. They have, after all, WiFi. Well, the MCD in Moab must have dial up! I am not able to publish anything. So I left after a salad for LaSal Loop road, which would take me from Moab to Castle Valley, back to Moab. At some point I would ride along the Colorado River. Little did I know the beauty of this drive!
