The Red Cliffs Lodge in Moab, Utah was wonderful. We added a night because we were so mesmerized by the view and the laid back atmosphere...just what we needed after riding the highways with two young children for several days.
When we came into Moab, I never saw the first sign indicating how to get to this property (it may have been just on oversight on my part). Luckily, we had a Garmin to tell us where to go. It is extremely remote - 16 miles out approximately - so if you are wanting to be in on the shops & nightlife...turn around. If you enjoy peace & relaxation & really desire no entertainment other than God's creation...stay!
The hotel staff was excellent. They give you fresh cookies upon check-in & it was just a "homemade" touch that I felt was nice. Our first two nights were in a River Suite - one King & a sofa sleeper, which is fine. The room was spacious & clean. The view was to die for! We loved it so much we immediately requested a third night but had to change to a Queen Creekside room. We were thrilled to get the third night but a little disappointed with the view after where we had come from...still nice though. The second room was not nearly as clean, but no complaints because we were glad to be there!
The kitchen area was adequate & we did go into town to a nice grocery store & buy some food items.
The patio could have been spruced up somewhat, but who cares what you were sitting on when the view you were taking in was out of this world!
The pool area was nice. The water was really cold, but enjoyble. They had beach towels available in the room for you, which was very nice.
I did use the laundry facility....again, no complaints!
We did not get to ride horses...but we visited the stable and the staff there were congenial and lovely to talk with. The horses were in great shape & if I ever go back...I will do this.
We did go on a whole day rafting trip with Moab Adventures (I think)...whoever the hotel uses...& it was fun & definitely adventurous. A little scary for those that are not used to such but something you showed try. The best part for Mom??? The lunch provided by the Lodge - very filling & delicious! Our guide was a young man named John who was fun & knew about the area. He did a great job as a guide!
We ate supper @ the restaurant our last night. We sat outside & enjoyed the view & was pleasantly entertained by our waiter, David, who is from our neck of the woods originally. We enjoyed conversing with him & the food was good.
Bottom line...if you want scenery, peace, relaxing, rustic & ranch-like qualities...you have hit the lottery, man!
