Default hotels in Moab?

Wife wants to go this year and does not want to camp. Any suggestions on hotels in Moab? Where are You staying if not at BFE?

There was just a thread about this a couple weeks ago:

No to dissuade anyone from camping, but I am looking into renting a condo on the south side and would be happy to share the space. Please PM me if you are interested.

Red Stone Inn is nice, right in town, and cheap. Doesn't have that sterile feel (some like that though). My Dad stayed at the Gonzo Inn last summer, they have an awesome chlorine free pool and every room has a porch, its also right in town so you can walk to restaurants. But it costs quite a bit more.
Those are the only two I have any experience with.

Ken,

There are also some threads in the CM section...I know I have started at least one in there last year or the year before that people offered up a lot of suggestions.

I still think a "Where to stay in Moab" sticky thread at the top of the CM section would be a good idea

I'm in the same boat so I made reservations at the Holiday Inn Express until I can find something I like better.

Kim and I stopped in Moab on our way back from AZ in November. I recalled that TLCA members got a 15% discount at Motel 6 so we stopped there. They had never heard of the TLCA, but they still gave me a room for 15% off. It was also 30% smaller than the other rooms... Mary and Chris stayed there too. maybe some others.

I stayed at the Ramada inn last year. It was fine. They just renovated all the rooms. It was clean and comfortable and we could walk to pasta jays and most places downtown. That's why I chose it vs holiday inn or motel 6 on the north end. It was pretty much smack dab downtown.

Martin, the TLCA discount code is in the members section of tlca.org.
