We spent two nights here at the end of a 2-week road trip. The retro rooms are fun and roomy. It is centrally located allowing for exploring the town easily on foot. The staff were friendly and helpful with our questions. We left our Water Pik behind and Christy agreed to mail it to us no charge! We appreciate that kind of customer service and will definitely stay here again.
Our family of 4 stayed here for 3 nights. The room was sparkling clean and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The mini fridge was a convenient addition. The breakfast buffet was open from 6am-10am, and everything was set out and organized and restocked frequently. The free arcade game room was a hit for my kids. But the pool was where my kids would have happily stayed for the entire vacation. They loved the water slide and playing with all the other kids. It was so nice to have a place to come and cool off and relax after a hot day at Arches. (The hot tub was nice for me as the sun went down.) Located in Moab’s downtown, this motel is walking distance to dozens of restaurants and shops. It was the perfect choice for our family.
I really wanted to give this place 5 stars. It’s centrally located on Moab’s main strip with plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. It has a pool with an awesome water slide that my daughter adored. The rooms are updated without losing the fun, retro touches of the original 1970s motel. There was only one problem: the floor in our room was disgustingly dirty. I attempted to clean it with an old towel we brought with us, but no amount of scrubbing would get it clean. I talked to the manager, assuming she would be horrified, but she told me they get this complaint all the time. Apparently the laminate flooring attracts dirt and simply cannot be cleaned effectively. Next time we’re headed to Moab, my first call will be to the Expedition Lodge and my first question will be, “Have you replaced the flooring or figured out how to clean it properly?” If the answer is yes, I’ll book a room immediately. If the answer is no, I’ll look elsewhere.…
Fun, funky, retro, very clean motel with great beds. The place was renovated and has a fun vibe. There is an outside heated pool which the kids will love the water slide. Staff was friendly. We arrived early and was able to get into our room before noon. Beds are comfortable. This is the first motel I have stayed I. That did not have carpet in the floor. I loved it! Highly recommend staying here.
This motel was the perfect mix of retro kitsch and modern amenities. The staff (Rico & Gonzo we remember specifically) along with the manager went above and beyond. The room was spotless, the pool was perfect temperature and clean, and EL had the best free grab and go breakfast i have even seen at a hotel. Not your average "continental breakfast." They actually had healthy options too. Our dog was welcome which was why we booked it originally but we will stay whether our pup is with us or not. Fantastic vintage murals in the rooms and on our last day we discovered the most incredible pink and gold bathroom in the lobby. Swan faucets and all! Thanks for a great stay!
