I have been coming to the Moab area to hike in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and the surrounding areas for almost 30 years. The problem is, Moab as a city and a place to base yourself is neither very attractive, nor particularly good value as far as hotels are concerned. While planning my last visit, I stumbled across Castle Valley Inn on the internet ... boy, am I glad that I did!
Castle Valley Inn is a wonderful property, set in a beautiful and peaceful location. It is extremely well run by the amiable owners, Jeanette and Jason, and their staff. Located about 17 miles from Moab along one of the most spectacular drives in the world, the inn is far enough away to be removed from Moab (which can be a touristic madhouse at times), yet close enough that it is easy to drive in for dinner or shopping.
The inn features rooms that range from "hotel-like" (in the main building) to several large apartments with full kitchens. I stayed in one of the latter (The Hovenweep) and can strongly recommend you choose one of these options. Value for money was reasonable for this region.
Amenities are top-notch. A gourmet breakfast is served (included in the room rates) each morning, there is a delightful hot tub on-property, and free wi-fi internet is available in and around the main building.
Overall, a delightful place to stay for visitors to the Moab area. I can't wait to return to the Castle Valley Inn!
