“Unbelievably bad beds!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2009

This was over 3 years ago. Hopefully they have changed them out! We choose it for it's "dogs welcome" policy. Never, ever again. Noisy A/C and rock hard bed! Nice yard for our dog to play in. He liked it.

The Gonzo was a fun, trendy inn. We stayed in a suite and had a kitchen and separate bedroom. I appreciated the the separate bedroom was truly separate as many inns advertise that their suites have a separate bedroom and they are not. The rooms were decorated in a hip style, not your typical cookie-cutter interior decorating. The pool was in a relaxing corner of the inn and the water temperature was perfect. It was very easy to get to our favorite Moab restaurant, the Brewery, and our son could walk to the bike and climb tour businesses.

My family with teenagers mark the calender with how many days we get to stay at the Gonzo Inn, which we have done for 9 years of their 17 year lives. Best location, the Gonzo is like Moab itself- unique, fun and a state of mind. Give me the walk in showers and a Gonzo Robe over tthe Four Seasons or Westins that I stay in for business any day.
PLEASE do yourself a favor. Go to Moab, hike Fisher Towers, and relax at the Gonzo. That, my friends, is living.

Check in was simple and parking easy. Our room had a cathedral ceiling and small balcony and overall plenty of space. Great shower. Staying for 3 nights, the same breakfast selections got a little old, but still more than adequate. Location was perfect for walking to shops and restaurants. The decor makes this hotel a bit more fun than the cookie cutter chains. Signage on both ends of town make it simple to find.

Enjoy!

We chose to visit the Gonzo Inn simply because of the sign on the street! We couldn't have been happier! We only planned to stay one night and checked out the next a.m., however, after a day of hiking, we decided to go back to the Gonzo Inn and stay another night! Really a nice place if you are looking for more than just a "cookie cutter" motel!

Only 1 block off the commercial strip, but seems like another world, in a quiet, leafy green residential area. Yet when you want to eat, drink, or shop, the commercial strip is just a short stroll away.

Standard motel amenities and comfort level, dressed up in "industrial-chic" decor (lots of steel and concrete). A lot more interesting than another faux-colonial or faux-victorian place. Included continental breakfast was fairly good.

Stayed at the Gonzo for 3 nights and loved it. Clean room and hotel. Nice pool that faces a quiet street. Great location for walking to restaurants and shops. I thought the hotel was a nice quiet place to relax after a day of hiking or being on the river. It was over 100 degrees during our stay in Moab and the AC worked great.
