“For the price - a nice, clean option in Moab”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

We stayed at the River Canyon Lodge this past weekend and it is a great choice in town. My wife ran the Half Marathon, and this hotel is only a block or so from the assembly point for the buses and the finish line. Moreover, we could walk into town to shop and enjoy one of the many restaurants.

The RCL beats many of the cheaper options in town just because of the interior doors (instead of the motels with exterior room doors). The place is a bit worn around the edges, but clean and though not fancy at all, it is nice at this price point. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The WiFi was always "busy" it seemed and mostly useless. But this was all about having a place to stay close to the race and downtown, and it fit the bill just fine.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side don't face the bar across the street, and are therefore a bit quieter wh...

Husband and I stayed here Oct 4-9, 2011. We were out hiking and/or rafting all day, so very tired at night. We slept great in a very comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Room is not fancy, but is clean and did have small refrigerator and microwave. Coffee each morning in the lobby. Also, extra cleaning rags in lobby for bikes and hiking shoes. Affordable. Will stay here again, especially if we return with the children. I do not have pictures of room, but rooms look like picture on the official website and other pictures I saw on tripadvisor. The place is not fancy, but comfortable and homey. It is in great location. Restaurants and shopping in walking distance. I love Moab.

Room Tip: Hotels.com was trying to put me in another hotel and said nothing was available at this one on the d...

River Canyon Lodge is perfectly located 1/2 block off Main street in Moab, and within walking distance to restaurants, shops and a park. Being near two national parks, the hotels/motels in Moab don't have much incentive to stay updated. They know people will come. That being said, we were very pleasantly surprised that River Canyon has done a bit of updating. We've stayed here in the past, in both the junior suite and the two bedroom suite. Both were roomy and comfortable. This time we had a standard room with two queen beds a fridge and microwave (sadly no coffee maker, but there was complimentary coffee at 7 a.m. in the lobby.) The room felt small for two adults, two small children and a dog. There was a window seat and small desk with a chair but no where else to sit besides the beds. I can't imagine four adults in that size room so I would definitely recommend a larger room for anything more than two or three people. It was comfortable enough for our 2 night stay though. It looked like it had been recently painted and had newer bed spreads. The bathroom also looked like it had a new tub surround and new fixtures. It was very clean. It does have pretty thin walls. We could hear doors closing and muffled conversations but I was able to sleep with earplugs. This place is very pet friendly but does not smell at all and as mentioned before was CLEAN! The staff was very friendly. The River Canyon Lodge is a comfortable, basic place to sleep after a day of fun in Arches National Park or the surrounding area.

A way-point while doing our round trip for arches and grand canyon. Stayed 2 nights, for 2 room. Room is basic and clean, nothing fancy to be expected. Reception is nice and good place to get info for going around. A good way-rest, but don't expect anything more. slightly pricey, but we are to be blamed, as we book quite late into the week, just few days before traveling.

In Moab, need to carefully select your hotel, and you can't go wrong with the River Canyon Lodge. Clean rooms, courteous staff. Very helpful with local information. Close to everything in town.

Needed a one-night stay, cheap, in Moab, Utah. This place was around 44.00 a night through
TripAdvisor and Orbitz. The time of year was late October, so I don't know what the rate would be during the height of the season. But if you need a clean place to lay your head, this is the place. The standard room was small, but it was advertised that way. It was more than adequate in order to catch some sleep while visiting nearby Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Obviously, lots of other people found this place too, because it was the only motel in town that had cars parked in the lot! The motel is also geared to mountain bikers, since the area is close to Sliderock, a popular mountain bike place.

Room Tip: They have suites and bigger rooms available. Just ask.

We stopped in Moab on our way from Denver to Sedona. We needed a clean bed and a hot shower and River Canyon provided just that.

The fact that a warm fire was glowing in the lobby and we were met with friendly service was a bonus!

The room was nothing fancy but it did have a small table, plus a desk, mini fridge and microwave. We got up early the next morning to watch sunrise in Arches National Park and it was just a few minutes drive from there.

If you have pet allergies, not a good place for you. They have doggie treats on the lobby counter, pet fountain in the lobby and when we checked out a cat was curled up in the outgoing mail basket. We love animals so we didn't mind, as long as it didn't "smell" like animals which it didn't.

They offer AAA, AARP and government rates which makes their low rates even better!
