“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

We were in Utah for a wedding and decided to come out early and see some of the state. We booked last minute are so thankful we did. Our room was right on the river so the views are spectacular. The winery has several very good wines that go perfect with the food being served at the restaurant. We enjoyed dining on the deck overlooking the river. The wait staff was personable, friendly and knowlagable as they are local. The food itself was above average for a hotel restaurant and they will even make you lunch if you are going out for an adventure. We went horseback riding at the ranch (the best trail riding I have ever been on) , hiked the canyons, drove to canyonland, hiked in Arches, and rafted the colorado. All this in three days. If you like an active vacation this would be it. But it is also one of the most relaxing places I have ever been. The lodge is out of the way and away from town but it is only a 15-20 min drive. I have almost 180 destinations on my travel map and this is one of my 6 favorite places. Take it for what that is worth

Room Tip: get a river view

We stayed in one of the cabins right on the river bank. The cabins are equipped with two queen bedrooms, a joined bathroom, living room with kitchenette and a big deck facing the river. Everything was clean and tidy, the front desk staff is very friendly and helpful, the restaurant is quite good and offers amazing views on locations well known from wild west movies. There is not really a need for the 15 mile drive to Moab to get dinner.

The drive from Moab is along the Colorado river through a canyon with amazing views, and the location of the lodge is at a point where this canyon widens towards the 'professor valley'. The landscape invites to some after dinner hikes, horse rides or just a car trip enjoying the amazing views at sunset. Arches NP is right across the river, but since no road climbs the mountains, it's a 20 mile drive to the park entrance. Canyonlands is a little further.

We enjoyed our stay here tremendously, as a base for our exploration of the national parks as well as for relaxing on the patio enjoying the sounds of the river and watching the birds nesting in the trees around us.

Room Tip: I have not seen the smaller rooms, but the 2-bedroom cabins are lovely

I have spent two nights in this very nice lodge last week. Booked on booking.com they are offering half price of their normal rate, means 99$ per nights. Arrived late, I have suffered form their relative remote location, had to drive 20 km from Moab junction. In daylight this is a really nice scenic road. Room was nice an clean, only problem was that it was not pre heated, so in -7 the clima spent some hours when he room templeature reached the normal. The second surprize was, even it was published on their www, no restaurant in house. They kindly offered some survive set (cookies, jogurt, bananas), but no hot meals are available. So you should prepare yourself.
Location is simple the the best, in the morning you open your door to Colorado river and the rocks.
For 99 it's a great deal.

We have traveled around the country and stayed at lots of places, but nothing comes close to the location and natural beauty surrounding the Red Cliffs Lodge. We extended our vacation so we could visit Moab before flying back home to DC. We booked the Red Cliffs Lodge at the last minute based on the reviews we saw on TripAdvisor and this was the first time the comments were spot on. We wish we could have stayed another night at Red Cliffs Lodge! The setting was perfect and we absolutely loved the fact Castle Creek Winery was located next door. We arrived late in the afternoon and had dinner at the Lodge. The food and service was great. The rooms are fairly basic and very clean, but the views more than make up for the basic amenities. The next day we went horseback riding with a group of people and it was the perfect way to end our tour of Utah, Arizona and Nevada. We we will be serving Castle Creek wine at our wedding and we plan to come back in a few years!

such a magical place nestled along the Colorado river. The rooms were very clean service was great, rooms were large and pet friendly, bed was comfortable with soft pillows, back patio with access to a trail along the river. The wines were very good as they are also a working vineyard which was an unexpected bonus. This will be one of our getaways. The lodge is 14 miles out of town but the drive is so amazing, it makes for an experience that is completely worth it and adds to e ambience of the ranch. Thank You!

We stayed here for four nights. It is a bit of a drive outside of Moab but very much worth the extra driving time.
Stayed In a very nice cabin with ample room and good beds in the two bedrooms.
The view from the patio wAs really beautifull, the Colorado river right in front of you with the stunning red cliffs right behind it.
Very nice setup with lots of outside space between the cabins.
Nice pool with deck chairs etc.
The restaurant offers outside seating and the food is excellent, and service very friendly.
You can rent a horse or takes guided trip on horseback. This was one of the highlights of our stay, seeing the wonderfully country site in horseback.

Looking for Dog Friendly and Very Unique? The Red Cliffs Lodge at mile marker 14 on Utah 128 (14 miles from Moab) is a fantastic winter retreat. Located on a picturesque bend on the Colorado River the Red Cliffs Lodge has it all during prime season (pool, horseback riding, jeep tours, restaurant, and guided hiking tours) in the most incredible setting imaginable. During December and January, limited services (pool, restaurant, trail rides, cabins unavailable) make this the lodging bargain of the southwest. A limited number of dog friendly rooms will require travelers with pets to plan ahead. Not all rooms back on to the Colorado River so be sure to request that when making a reservation.

Rooms have small kitchenettes that include sink, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and some plates and glassware.

There is a river side trail along the entire Colorado River bend of the property that is a great start to your outdoor day before an adequate continental breakfast.

Short drives to Arches, Island in the Sky, Fisher Tower, and Negro Bill Canyon make this a hiker and sight-seeing hub. And Utah 128 from Moab to about mile marker 37 just might be the most spectacular scenic drive in the continental United States!

Because this is canyon land and far removed from big city lights be sure to get up during the night on get outside for phenomenal star gazing!

Room Tip: Ask for a room or cabin that backs to the river.
