Looking for some suggestions on possible places to stay, or not to stay, based on your experiences...I've only camped out there in the popup camper the 2 times I've been.

I have not yet decided if I want to go through the fun again of dragging the popup out for CM08 and I have been contemplating staying in a hotel or something instead this time around.

Some pluses of doing so would be not having to deal with the cotton :) and hopefully finding a place with an indoor pool for the kids (they darn near froze the 1 time they went in the pool at the campground :o). Obviously there are some negatives like cost and being away from the action at the campground :(.

All that aside, any places you all would definitely recommend to stay at or stay away from? The hotel just North of Slickrock campground looked nice but I can't remember which one it was.

Oh, and if anyone wants to offer to drag a 17', 2400# (unloaded) Coleman camper out to CM08 for me (or drive my LX out so I can pull the popup with something else) that would work as well :hill:

Big Bend is a nice place to camp, not too far from town but no cotton. :thumb:

Have you considered the cabins? No trailer to haul. Heaters. Not the Ritz, for sure -- still need to bring "stuff" for the beds (no bedding provided), and there will be some cotton incursion. From what I saw last year, not as much cotton in the cabins as in the tents.

The Super8 is fine - I stayed there last year and on other trips - and is within walking distance of the campground, if you don't mind a 10-15 minute walk. So is the AArchway, which I think is the place you're thinking of.

I'm at the BW Canyonlands for CM08. I have no interest in camping, and prefer to walk around town rather than drive.

The cabins didn't pass the :Princess: approval test :hill: - If it were just me I'd just bring a tent and be done with it. CM09 will probably be just me, a tent, and the 40 because the kid's school is switching from the track system to traditional. These means they won't have the week of CM off anymore :(

Has anyone stayed at the Holiday Inn Express? I think that is the one just North of the campground IIRC. Looked decent, and close enough to the campground that hopefully I won't miss much of the fun.

So, if I bring the popup we'll be staying at Slickrock...What I really need to know is what, if any, hotels you'd suggest to stay at, or not stay at, based on your experiences and word of mouth.

Mark, thanks for the tips on the hotels you suggested. I'll check them out :thumb:

I've stayed at the Super8 as well - not a bad place. Cheap, clean enough, breakfast (toast, cereal, juice) in the morning, pool....

The only place I've stayed indoors at Moab is the Sun Flower Hill B&B. Wife loved it. She's always buggin me to go again. We were there in the winter but I think I remember pool and hot tubs. Its a few block off main street in town.
