    Historical Traveler Reviews Bowen Motel Moab

    Excellent Value


    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!

    Nice place


    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.

    Great Motel


    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.

    Awesome stay


    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.

There was the full moon Ranger led hike at the Windows arch that didn't take place due to the lack of a moon (heavy clouds) and approaching storm. Consequently many of Jon's pics don't do justice to this wonderful area. But of course we loved every minute of our stay here, The dogs were not so happy since the RV park was ...

    We arrived back at the visitors centre, settled the bill, grabbed some cold drinks and headed off towards Moab. After a few hours driving, and seeing that there was very little between Blanding and Moab, we made the tactical decision to stop for lunch. Initially it looked like the population of Blanding weren’t partial to take-out food, however after a quick turnaround we managed to ...

    ... we traversed were as much as 47% and at some points we were either looking straight up at the sky or straight down. In all honesty I did not really enjoy this experience. It was very bumpy and I started to experience motion sickness. I ended up sitting in the front passenger seat which helped with the motion sickness problem but which gave me a hair-raising view of where we were going. It seemed like absolute insanity to put so ...

    ... heading to bed around 11pm, the bricks still weren’t hot enough to actually cook their food. They were quite friendly and true to their statehood, interjecting the phrase “ya, sure” into the conversation quite frequently. After chatting with them a bit the next morning, we discovered they were actually a married couple, their adult son, and an uncle.

    On Monday June 30th we left Zion and headed across the state to Arches National Park, ...
