Historical Traveler Reviews Bowen Motel Moab
We spent just one night and were extremely pleased. Our room was very spacious and clean. The decor is a little dated, but everything worked. After 18 days of traveling in the west we really liked that the room door opened right to the parking lot. We were very tired of carrying luggage through interior hallways at other motels! The free wireless internet connection was one reason we chose the Bowen Motel and it worked flawlessly. The lady who checked me in was very friendly and efficient and straight forward - explaining exactly what would be included in the continental breakfast - rolls, oatmeal, juice, and coffee. The location is very convenient. We will definitely recommend the Bowen Motel to our friends who have complained about the high price for lodging in Moab. The Bowen Motel is a great value and a bargain!
My family of five had a nice stay here in mid April. We stayed 3 nights. Location was great. We enjoyed walking up Main Street and shopping. Also used the pool quite a bit. It was small but not crowded and warm. Rooms were large and clean. Compared to other hotels in the area it was cheaper ($65). You do see interesting people around the place having cookouts in the parking lot. But we were never bothered by noise and everyone was very friendly. Free internet service in lobby was great.
Our stay there was actually from last October. Large rooms, very clean, and very good rates. Internet booking was available. The place was conveniently located in town so we could walk to all the stores and places to eat. The staff was very friendly. We would go back and recommend it to others.
The Bowen staff is the most friendly we have encountered during our three week trip. They went above and beyond the call of duty to find activities for us to do and make sure our stay was comfortable. We even had our baggage lost and the nice lady at the front desk took care of speaking to the rep at the airlines to ensure that it was delivered to our door here the next day. Very neat and tidy. Great rates and we could book online which I like. All in all the best stay so far and definately is recommended to all. We will be back for sure.
Worst place of our trip !
We stayed only one night : hopefully ! the carpet and the room were dirty, there were lots of noise (you are really near from the main street), the service was not friendly, ... But Internet and the coffee were free. Choose the super 8 motel !
A step above sleeping in the car
We got in around 11pm and settled in to the room. I washed up and pulled back the covers to find the sheets had hairs on them. The bed was made, but it had been slept in. The other bed was the same.
Did I say a step above sleeping in the car? Don't save money here, pay more and stay in a decent hotel. I concur with the previous review.
Stay somewhere else if you can
Not as bad as one of the motels on our trip, but definitely a disappointment--the second worst on a 17-day trip that used eight hotels in the west. Carpet was dirty, lots of noise. This is a motel habituated by bikers and rowdy college-age boys away from home on a hiking adventure. Need I say more? There are many other, better places in Moab.

I70 takes a very scenic route as it continues into the State of Utah, which is known for amazing sights and dazzling national parks, among then Arches N.P. Taking a day to check out this place, we were excited to see all the natural formations that are constantly changing as erosion works its magic ...
... s choice of Sunflower Hill proves to be a winner. Great welcome from our host who shows us the supply of fresh brownies, the fridge where we can keep our own wine and beer, a big jar of Smarties and a cosy little summer house where we're staying just next to the pool. After a brief relax with a beer we take Josh to the Lazy Lizard hostel where he is staying (sadly no room with us but at $10 a night for a dorm bed he seems ...
We continue to travel east in southern Utah. Our original plan was to see Arches National Park, however that plan for the day changed when we realized the fun of today's' adventure was during the journey, not the destination. Heading east out of Bryce Canyon, we picked up scenic route 12. This scenic route tops any others we have been on. The views from the car kept changing and with every turn we were awed again ...
... to our campground. The next morning we would be waking up early for ROCK CLIMBING! As athletic as I thought myself as, I was still a little nervous about climbing. I have paid some attention to the sport, and was aware of some of the aspects of it, but still had no idea where we were going and what we would be up against.
We woke up and ate breakfast, and then headed towards town and Cliffs and Canyons Rock Climbing and Canyoneering Outfitters. When we walked in our ...
... an excellent steak - even Tom was persuaded to try a steak and loved it (fillet of course!!). As we drove back to the hotel, the sun was setting, casting orange and purple glows across the rocks (accompanied by us all singing 'the final countdown' at full volume). Back at the ranch we did some star gazing in the clear desert sky, before washing off the red dust of the day and collapsing into ...
