Stayed here for 5 nights. The room rate was surprisingly reasonable for Moab. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Not too far from the highway but traffic noise was not heard at all. Furniture was a little dated and rooms are small but a good value for the area. Would stay here again!

Hotel's Favourite
Spent three nights here while hiking the surrounding canyons. This is the old style motel from the past which means it has the best location. The place has been well taken care of, is clean and the staff was friendly. It is an easy walk to the local restaurants- no need to get back in the car. I will definitely be staying here again on our already planned return to Moab. I really enjoyed staying in a locally owned motel instead of the big chain hotels- most of which are located at the outskirts of the main drag. As a side note- my son left his wallet in the nightstand drawer and we had already travelled halfway across Utah when they found it. The staff at the Bowen Motel called us and set up UPS delivery to the next hotel we were to be staying in. It was there waiting for us when we arrived. That gives you an idea of the kind of people running this motel.

We stayed for 2 nights while visiting the Arches. It is a great central location and super clean, which I appreciate during these times. Stacy in reception is awesome and gave great advice. We loved her suggestion of the Dinosaur tracks on Potash Road, there are great petroglyphs on the way. We were not disturbed by noise at all.

What can you expect when you're deciding where to stay in a new town the same evening? You go by the reviews of course and reserve a night at the Bowen Motel, surrounded by the natural wonders of Moab, Utah. Upon arriving you are made to feel like a very special guest, and that's before going to your room and finding out that everything is so tidy, neat, and clean. You are right on the main strip, within walking distance of bookstores, gift shops, fancy restaurants, or fast food places. The motel has an impeccable pool, and the pool area is very well-kept. After hiking all day, it is nice to relax at the pool, and the heated water is a real pleasure! We ended up extending our stay first by one night, then another night! We will return next year to visit Utah's natural wonders again and we already know where we will be staying!

We only stayed a night, but I would gladly stay for a week. Like many other properties this is right on the main drag. Nice room, lots of space. Friendly staff, easy check in and out. The Bowen is going to be my first choice next time I visit. Best part of the location, Love Muffin is right next door.

Thank you for the great review! We absolutely enjoy the Love Muffin as well and feel extremely lucky to be located right next door. Doughbird’s is fabulous too if you come back and want to try a wonderful doughnut. It’s always a great day when we hear from our guests and hopefully we’ll see you again.
