      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.

Julia said it was her last time camping after experiencing a night bathroom trip to a spider infested bathroom. We decided to spend two nights in Moab,UT so we could spend a whole day hiking at Arches and then see Canyon Lands the next day. We challenged ourselves to a 6 mile hike at the Devils Garden. There were signs warning of ...

I stood for a while and watched bikers go down the road. The White Rim Road is a 100 mile dirt road on the canyon floor. There are also camps along the way for people who want to make this a multi day ...

      Canyonlands and smaller arches

      ... motels and hotels were practically chain-free and the bars were just the right amount of hick. We wandered through the streets, enjoying shave ice from a tiny wooden hut on Main Street. It was a taste sensation! Of course I've had slushies in the past, but this was something else. Tiny shavings of ice which, when packed in tight, took on a snow-like consistency. To this soft, powdery mixture, the server added sweet syrup in a huge range of flavours. The small cup was, in ...

      The trip into the park started with a steep drive from the visitors centre up past the Park Avenue Viewpoint to the La Sal Mountain Viewpoint. We stopped at both to take pictures and noticed small signs on the ground asking people not to step on the biological soil crust; clearly the ...
