Reviewed 7 August 2012

We were really surprised by this place! Most hotels in town were full but this one seemed to have plenty of rooms left, and then the price was really decent. This left us wondering about our choice since it looked very nice also. Our room was very nice and was clean also! The free breakfast had several choices and was good. I still don"t understand why this hotel didn't fill up very fast as I thought everything about it was very nice and had a great price. I would definitely stay here again.

Our very clean 2Q non-smoking room perfectly matched my request for a ground-floor location with easy access to our vehicle. Located on the main drag but still quiet, Riverside gave us a large, comfortable space for three adults with fast wi-fi, plenty of towels, effective A/C, a variety of seating, and a refrigerator. Front desk staff were friendly, helpful, and efficient. The price was right, too; we'd be happy to stay here again.

My husband and I have been staying at Riverside Inn for five years. The owner and staff are great. This motel offers adequate parking, clean large rooms, a laundry room, outdoor pool and hot tub and breakfast. It is located a hop skip away from many great attractions. We feel very much at home here when we visit Moab and stay at The Riverside Inn.

We have stayed at the Riverside Inn some seven times over the last 6 years and always been very satisfied. We stay usually up to a week in May or October with the last visit in May 2012.
This place offers decent large clean rooms, free breakfast and fast free WiFi, also there is one internet station in the lobby. If you have bikes there is a storage room available as well.
Overall after all our visits to Moab we believe this is the best value in town. Never had any problems.

Room Tip: just book it,

First off, if you're in Moab, you're not looking for sparkles and frills and extravagance. If you're doing Moab right, you're outside playing hard all day and into the night. Once night falls, you're in town getting some ice-cold beer to soothe the sunburn that you inevitably got.

We've stayed at Riverside several times, and I hope it doesn't change. It's just a good, clean, comfortable place to stay.

There is a really decent breakfast and the coffee is better than at most motels. Staff is super-super-super nice. On one of our stays, this past holiday season, we were at the motel on Thanksgiving day. The staff wasn't even grumpy being there on a holiday!

Another thing I love is the laundry. There is a container for change for the washer and dryer, but they aren't coin-operated machines. Lemme tell ya how convenient THAT is! No searching for quarters or going out to the money machine or trying to make change somewhere. Nope. Just put dollar bills or nickels and dimes or quarters in the container and do your laundry. They're so nice, they even provide a large tub of detergent for guests to use at no cost.

**Laundry note -- check the washer and dryer before you put your clothes in. Moab is a very outdoorsey, active place, and all sorts of laundry gets tossed in. Don't be surprised pull your jeans out of the washer and find someone else's red dirt in the pockets.

The only thing I would change about Riverside Inn is the location. It's nice, but not really *in* town. It's just barely outside town, and you could bike it pretty quick. Walking into town would be a but longer than ideal.

The staff is pleasant and the location was perfect for us. We physically drove to 10 other hotel/motels in Moab and inspected their rooms. We settled on Riverside Inn for 2 nights because of it's price as it was the cheapest in town,the large room, and the short drive to Arches and Island in the Sky Canyonlands entrance. The value to us outweighed the lack of a coffeemaker in our room, small fridge (ample for our needs), and the small t.v. There is a microwave in the lobby and we used it a lot which was fine for us.The internet worked perfectly in our room. The hot water for showers/bath was great. There is an outside pool and jacuzzi though we did not use them. We used the low cost laundry facilities as it was much appreciated after a dirty, windy day at Arches. The only problem was the rooms are not built to handle too much noise from neighboring rooms or the hallway. Our first night we had a noisy, large family opposite our room and it was difficult to sleep. The second night was just fine as the adjoining rooms must have been on our sleep schedule of 10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.. Continental breakfast was average- english muffins,dry cereal, pastries, orange juice, and thank goodness assorted fruit. We were content with our stay here especially for the value.
