Historical Traveler Reviews Red Stone Inn Moab
I'd go back tomroow if I could!
The room was clean and comfortable - a little dark, but ok. The floor is red stone tile. (Brrr - and you can feel any sand/dirt you might track in if you are barefooted). Still - I prefer it over carpeting (which holds more dirt - but you can't feel it). There was a separate kitchenette area, which came in handy. Bathroom small but clean. For the price you can't beat it. The motel staff set up 2 "Adventure Packages" for us - which were wonderful! The staff was friendly and polite. We left feeling like we got a great deal - and had a great time. Already planning next years stay here.
Had what we needed but dark.
The Redstone Inn resembles a long cabin. Room have knotty pine walls and furniture is old. However, the room was clean and it had a kitchenette area. The hallway was dark. It appeared to only be lit by skylights(at least during the day) which often didn't provide much light. The lobby was well maintained but the entrance to our building was not. The door needed painting . The motel was quite full, but it was quiet at night. The price was reasonable.
Small Rooms, Good Location - Nice Price
Stayed there five years ago, so the rooms may be different now. But, at the time they were nice and clean, with a great smell from the all wood walls. Correct me if they have converted the wooden walls to plaster but at the time it was quite charming. Central to town if you want a little quiet but walkability to all the excitement. It will take you about 35 minutes to get to most trailheads in Arches from here - don't believe the mileage counts people post you have to drive very slow.

My sister neice and I stayed here for 2 nights. It was a good value but the room was very small for 3 people. The bathroom could have been cleaner. We also found Moab not to be pedestrian friendly.
Good value, but the rooms are small.
Advertised as "Moab's best value," the Red Stone Inn is arguably that in an increasingly expensive town. My wife and I stayed in two different rooms during two differnt stints as part of an extended trip to Southeastern Utah
First the positive: the hotel has a rustic look with real knotty pine paneling in the rooms. The rooms are well-mantained (good beds and furniture) and have some nice extras like ceramic tile in the bathrooms, extra towels and toiletries, hair dryer, iron & ironing board, good cable TV, and a handy kithen alcove with a fridge, microwave, sink, and a coffee maker. The hotel is also fairly close (just a few blocks) from the very center of town with all the activities and services. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful.
The not-so-positive: The rooms are VERY small (next to the Microtel chain, the smallest I've ever seen) - the layout of the two-double-bed-rooms seem more spacious than the one-queen-bed-rooms, so you should consider that as an option. The rooms were generally clean, but not spotlessly so. Clean-freaks may not be totally comfortable. This was mostly due to the indoor/outdoor style carpet in each room that had numerous spots and was a little dirty in places (probably due to their policy of allowing trail bikes in the rooms).
All-in-all, the Red Stone Inn is a good value in Moab (we paid $59 per night). This is particulary true if you're an outdoor-type who won't be spending a huge amount of time in your room. In other words, a typical Moab visitor!
Clean, Comfortable, Quiet, Cheap, Cramped
I stayed at the Red Stone Inn July 13 - 16. It's on the main drag in downtown Moab, but a little south of center, putting it a little away from area attractions. But Moab isn't very large, so it's not a great inconvenience. The inn is a series of 3 or 4 long one-story buildings with a center hallway running the length of each. All rooms are a bit rustic with a knotty pine decor. Mine was equiped with a microwave, refridgerator, and coffee maker. There's also free coffee available at the office and guest laundry facilities. They have a hot tub, but no pool. They do have an arrangement with a hotel across the street giving their guests access to its pool. I found the room a little small, but the bathroom was huge. Although not in the thick of the main shopping area, you can walk to all essential services, like grocery store, restaurants, movies, state ABC store, etc. I didn't have too many dealings with the staff, but they seemed friendly enough. I paid something like $55 a night. They don't have a way to make reservations other than calling the hotel at ---------. When I asked about the Internet rate, the amount I was quoted dropped by $10 a night, so make sure you mention it when you call. The Redstone Inn bills itself Moab's Best Deal. I really can't disagree.
Friendly staff, clean rooms
We spent three nights at the RedStone Inn in May, 2005. The room was very small and dark, but it was clean and comfortable. If you are going to spend most of your time in the great outdoors, we would recommend this budget motel. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the location is great - easy walk to shopping and restaurants. The microwave and fridge is in a little alcove along with a small kitchen sink - very handy. You can use the pool located at the motel across the street.
We planned on cooking on the outdoor grill, assuming it was in a "backyard" type setting. Unfortunately it's right next to the driveway/parking area - not a relaxing picnic spot so we chose not to use it.
We would stay here again, though.
Cozy, clean, comfortable Moab hotel with relatively low price
I stayed in the Red Stone Inn in Moab for four days (including one day where I rested in the hotel) during an extended trip through the Southwest in June 2005. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and I would return to the hotel if given the opportunity.
The Red Stone Inn is located on Main Street in Moab just south of the downtown area. Several restaurants are within easy walking distance, and all of the city's businesses are located within a short drive. The hotel consists of several single-story wooden buildings with both wood plank interiors and wood plank exteriors. The facilities include a whirlpool tub, a laundry room, a bike cleaning area, and a pool at the hotel across the street. The parking lot is a little small but otherwise fine. The staff in the lobby as well as the cleaning staff are quite courteous.
The rooms themselves are the nicest that I stayed in during my trip. The single rooms include a comfortable bed, a TV with a nice selection of cable channels, a wood veneer dresser, a wood veneer nightstand (attached to the wall), and a wooder table with two comfortable wooden chairs. The rooms also have kitchenettes with a 3 cubic foot refrigerator, a microwave, a small sink, and plenty of shelf space. The walls in all the rooms are wood planking. The bedroom floors have a nice gray carpet, and the bathroom and kitchenette floors are tiled with large earth-red tiles. The rooms are also decorated with very nice large prints of Utah scenery as well as nice large maps of Southeastern Utah. Except for one or two small spots, the rooms are kept very clean, too. Internet access is available in the form of an ethernet connection (with some kind of "special cord") but costs $10 extra.
The price for this hotel is lower than or equal to the price of most other Moab hotels, yet the amenities are superb, and the rooms feel quite cozy. I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Moab.
A great low-budget alternative!
My husband and I stayed here for several nights. The room was very clean, and it had a kitchenette. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The rooms were affordable. All the rooms are on one level, so you really need to keep the blinds closed when inside, making the room even darker than it already is. Definitely a no-frills type of motel, but we were quite satisfied.
Love the Red Stone Inn
Having stayed at the Red Stone Inn several times, I have to give it 2 thumbs up. Staff are always very nice and helpful. Rooms are clean and have kitchenette. Rates are reasonable. They frequently run specials online, so look for coupons. We can't wait to return to beautiful Moab and our comfy Red Stone Inn.

We slept in this morning, scrambled a cup of tea and some breakfast biscuits making it down to the bus for 8am. We were then driven the 4 hour scenic trip, still in Utah to the Arches National Park ( our 4 th of the trip). We had lunch in what seemed like considerable heat, about 90 degrees, under a shelter at the arches visitor centre. We then drove up into the park proper. The Arches is oddly similar to Yorkshire's Brimham ...
... shared a pretty down to earth, mature life philosophy based on strong values. From Torrey we explored part of Capital Reef National Park, views, petroglyphs, homesteads, astronomical Ranger presentation on the night sky (too many attendees for the one telescope) and then just hung out for one day. Friday, Sept 11 was a driving day - 150 miles or so to Blanding, stopping along the way at many overlooks and roadside ...
A road trip. I think it's fair to call this leg of our journey a road trip. We've driven well over 2,000 miles since leaving Chicago to get to this point, and today was a fair bit of driving too. But it's all part of the experience, and places aren't going to come to us, so if we want to see them then we are going to have to go to them. Much of the morning was spent driving through the desert, mostly on Navajo lands. We reached Monument Valley after a few hours. Monument Valley ...
... the middle of the road and took a couple of pictures.
We finally made it off that road and to the Natural Bridges National Park. This was a really cool park where there are several bridges that look like Arches to me but there is some technical reason why they are not called arches. We were planning on hiking there but it was close to 100 degrees and we were all pretty tired. We enjoyed our time there ...
