    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.

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 ...

    ... the canyon wall but brilliantly framing a view of some of the monuments on the canyon floor. It had been a fleeting visit to the Canyon Lands, just a few hours, but it impressed me, and whilst it remains relatively undiscovered by tourists I think I would recommend it to people over the Grand Canyon. When I arrived back at the motel Kirsty and Katie were ready for dinner. We wandered to the Denny's diner, which was next door to the motel. Katie had been looking forward to ...

    ... National Monument. The name suggests there is a singular monument to visit, instead it is actually a national park with a vast canyon and plateau. Our little red engine that could climbed up the windy road to the top of the canyon where we did a short walk to view 'independence rock' which juts out of the plateau independent from the rest of the canyon walls. We casually drove around the canyon and ...
