Planning your next trip to Moab? Stay at the Bowen Motel. The people are really friendly. Large, clean room with separate living and sleeping areas. Leather recliners and reading lamps that you can actually read by. Comfy bedding. If you are an AARP or AAA member, a king

I initially booked a three-bedroom house but at check-in we were upgraded to Bowen's Luxury House for free. This house is absolutely gorgeous. It has 6 fantastic bedrooms with excellent beds, all the necessary equipment and beyond. The house is a jewel and it definitely lives up

Mr. & Mrs. McCall, I'm so sorry your stay wasn't pleasant. On this day we had a power outage on the south side of our property and had to call in our electrician, as we have previously advised you. The heat in your original room was out for less than ten minutes and we offered to relocate you to another, bigger room at the same price, which you accepted. All of our rooms on the north side had power and we keep the heat running in several of them so they are warm and cozy upon check in. What you have failed to write is that you booked a prepaid reservation at a much cheaper rate where it clearly states that it is non-refundable. Upon check-in and before the power went down you had come in wanting to cancel your reservation with no given reason and then continued to come in with several issues, which we resolved immediately. I'm sorry you felt our staff was rude, we never want our guests to leave feeling like their stay wasn't satisfying. But, we also like to be treated with kindness and respect in return and in this case we were not. We take great pride in the cleanliness of our motel and our reviews will attest to this. Our beds do not run downhill and all floors are even. Our rooms are not dirty or musty as they are used almost daily on the north side and cleaned very well. We update our photos on the website anytime we make changes and they are very accurate as to what our property "really looks like". I offered to you on another of your bad review to email us directly and see if we could find a compromise that would make us all happy. I'm sorry you feel like trying to tarnish our name, but I understand that is the road you have chosen to take. Again, we are available should you like to call or email and speak with us directly in a respectful manner. We always appreciate hearing from our guests and take any feedback you give us to heart. We work hard to maintain a very clean, honest and reputable business. We wish you nothing but the best and hope your year to come is great. Sincerely, Tyson & Trish Lesmeister

It was a great place to stay, easy access to eveything around the town and an easy walk. Plenty of parking and it was quiet. Could not fault the place. The room was clean and tidy and had everything we as travellers wanted. Great value.

Thank you for the wonderful review. We are pleased you enjoyed having the fridge and coffee maker in the room. I'm so sorry about the noise from your next door neighbor, I know this can be frustrating. You are correct, Moab can be an expensive area and this time of year is one of our busiest. May and Sept are the most expensive months, with Dec thru February being the least expensive. If we have a mild winter those can be great months to come visit. We absolutely love hearing from our guests and hope to see you again.
