Checking out of our hotel in Monument Valley we made our way East for the last time of the road trip. Heading towards our day stop at Mesa Verde and the first 2 night stop of the trip in Moab.

Gisteravond net iets te laat naar bed, omdat we nog zoveel te doen hadden na een aantal drukke dagen. Dan ook nog een uur tijdsverschil en het is 's ochtends moeilijk je bed uit komen. We hebben gister een aanvraag gedaan voor een hotel voor vannacht en hebben mail terug …
Gepland: heel weinig want geen tijd. Erg hé.We moeten nl vandaag weer ver rijden (272 mijl= 440 km, 5uur rijden) naar Page, Lake Powell. En we moeten zeker een tussenstop doen in Monument valley, waar al die westerns zijn opgenomen.
Spijtig want Arches NP, op het Colorado plateau, is ook de moeite met zijn wereldberoemde verzameling …
We left the Grand Canyon early and drove around the Grand Canyon and eventually out of it. We didn't have cell service, or a map, so we relied on a hazy sense of direction. When we hit the New Mexico sign we started to think, this detour is ridiculous! We stopped and got a map and went on our way.
We drove through beautiful parts of this country. Utah ...
... so we decided to do a second random stop for the day. They had 3 here. It was neat to see and probably would have been a better experience had we had time to take some hikes. The trails would take you down closer to the bridges. Did I mention we still had the Arches to do and drive to Grand Junction CO?
Driving towards the Arches, we came to the realization that we probably couldn’t do the Arches and make it to Grand Junction. ...

The Big Horn lodge was very central which was great. I had read reviews saying that the rooms could be noisy however we didn't have any problems with noise during our stay at all. The room was a little dark as the windows were tinted and the wood panelling dark however the lamps lit it up just fine.
We were really happy with the TV channel selection.

Clean rooms, quick access to Arches
We traveled to Big Horn Lodge in the off season and got into town late. The receptionist was friendly. The room was clean and well maintained and included a microwave, larger than average refrigerator, and tv. The bathroom was on the small size but functional. We didn't use the internet while we were there, so we can't comment on it.
The only downside was that Big Horn Lodge was not well insulated from the road. We were on the first floor, and it got a little loud in the early morning with the traffic noises and people walking by. We would go back again but try to book a room on the second floor. Overall, it was great value, non-corporate atmosphere close to the park!
The Big 'Orn is great!
We enjoyed our week in Moab and the Big Horn. Moab is a busy resort but the motel has an efficient and friendly reception and plenty of parking. The fridge in the room came in very handy as it was very hot at the end of July! Rooms are large, clean and the motel and pool are well maintained. Recommended, a good place to stay.
Nothing special,ok if you cant fnd anywhere else
The room was dark but clean.It was located right on the main strip and even if you disregard the awful noise from the major road works right outside the door,it was very noisy. The restaurant/bar next door was very popular which not only created some of the noise but also created problems with people using hotel car park.There are definitely nicer hotels on the same road
We stayed at the Big Horn Lodge on June 6th. It was an okay motel at a great rate with a few problems. The desk staff was friendly and helpful. They are right on the main street in Moab, so it was a little noisy at night (they were doing a lot of road construction during the day). The average size room was clean, and looked like the inside of a cabin. For that reason, it was very dark, even with the lights on. It was also very warm. The A/C unit is located against the interior wall, near the sink. Thus, the A/C did not effectively cool the entire room. They did provide a small table fan and ceiling fan. The bathroom was a little cramped. They had a large refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and free internet access. We would stay here again, if the rates were comparable to other motels.
Not a Good Choice
Room was small and very dark, even when we turned on every lamp. Air conditioner is located right next to sink so it must be turned off. I would not recommend.
The Bighorn Lodge was a great place to stay, the rate was really resonable. When I checked into the front desk the staff was very organized and very friendly. They answered all of my questions and handed out some good information for things to do in Moab. I went to my room and was very delighted. It is done in a rustic look, which is cool because I never saw any other hotel done in this style. The room had everything I needed, two beds (one for me and one for all of my stuff) there was a dresser, desk, tv, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, high speed internet and even more. I went to the pool area to check it out (so when I come in the summer) it was very nice, the pool was a little small, but who needs a huge pool? I stayed a few days and was able to encounter some of the housekeeping staff, they were great, they did there job very well. I will be back!
The Big Horn Lodge - Best Place to Stay in Moab!!!
I just got back from a four-wheeling trip in Moab and had a great stay at the Big Horn Lodge. There were 12 in my group in 4 rooms. The rooms were excellent, and the staff is awesome!!! I appreciate the great rates on the rooms for me and my friends. My friends had never stayed at the Big Horn, but they will definitely be back, as will I. I still spread the word to anyone that I hear is going wheeling in Moab. We'll be down again Thanksgiving weekend.
I also had the opportunity to manage a construction project in Moab last year. A majority of the contractors on the project stayed at the Big Horn and had an excellent experience. They were well-taken care of by Britnie, Colin, and their staff.
I will not only be back, but refer anyone I know
I really enjoyed my stay at the Big Horn Lodge during September 24-27 in room 111. I absolutely did not want to leave. I've been in business since 1979, and have claimed tiome and time again that the age of the building doesn't matter- if you keep it clean, in good repair and present your guests a friendly and helpful staff - people will come, and they will come and they will come. They proved that! The rooms are wonderful and the staff is very attentive and helpful. I will not only be back, but I will refer anyone I Know heading to Moab that Big Horn Lodge is the place to stay! Congradulations ona great housekeeping staff and a great front desk staff... and a great hotel. I look forword to returning in 2006.
I was a little apprehensive about staying here since there was only one review from 2 years ago...but figured no bad reviews was a good sign.
Moab great for seeing parks
Stayed in Moab three days to see Arches NP, Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point State Park. Room at Big Horn Lodge very nice, rustic decor, good restaurant adjacent , especially good breakfast with ranch potatoes and green sauce. We didn't use the pool, but it was tiny if you are interested in pools. Dead Horse Point State Park had fabulous views and walking area.
