TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Virginian Motel Moab
We booked this room in the morning and guaranteed the room with a credit. We were told we would get a ground floor room because we had bikes, but when we arrive, no ground floors were available. We would have went elsewhere, but most of the hotels were full. Would not recommend this hotel. A/C does not work very well and kitchenette in room has no utencils or plates.

... more hiking than biking. We spent the entire day hiking various places with the park, visiting the Delicate Arch, the Landscape Arch, the Balanced Arch and many more lesser known, but equally spectacular. As you can see in this colorful photo of a female contingent within our group, we all found a way to change up from biking to hiking and enjoyed staying warmer while stopping to take photographs of these amazing vistas, views, plateaus, rocks ...
... br> Next stop was Moab, our entry into the Arches National Park and the so-called adventure capital of America. Now I've been to the NZ equivalent ( Queenstown) and I think the Moab residents have been drinking their own cool aid. We did however come across a fabulous 1950's diner serving the best thickshake I have ever tasted - a tip from one of the ski instructors we have befriended.
If Moab was the cross on a treasure map, Arches ...
