First of all, when visiting Moab, we only stay in a hotel the last night so we can get on the road quickly the next morning. Deluxe is not important to us. Clean & Family/Dog friendly is.
The reviews and photos are on par with what we experienced (good) and perhaps it was even better than I expected. The residential area was a plus. You would have no idea that you were a block away from the main drag. They are extremely dog friendly, but the clientele for that night also seemed like very good dog owners. It seemed like the majority of everyone had a dog, but I didn't hear one bark or have other dogs run up/out of control. Although I'm familiar with the area, the owner offered to point out some dog friendly walks, so take advantage of this from her if your dogs have been kept in the car all day.
Their courtyard is equipped with scoopers and a "sewer" to dispose of canine waste. I didn't experience this w/my dogs, b/c my husband took care of the dirty work but it seemed to work great. Very thoughtful! Upon check in, they give you an extra blanket to cover the beds. Our dogs slept on the floor but we took advantage of this all the same, as we did leave them in the room for an hour while we got dinner. They allow you to leave you dog unattended which is nice. I left my # at the front desk, but knew we wouldn't receive a call. If our dogs were barkers, we probably would not have done this.
The little touches I liked was the wood floors that you know are clean when pets are coming and going, and the colorful touches in each room which livens it up for a small space.
The only suggestions I would make is have a hair drier in the room. After camping, I didn't carry one, but would have loved the opportunity to use one the last night. Early am/Late pm when one is most likely drying hair, the office isn't staffed, so if they had one there - I wouldn't know. A fan in the bathroom would be a big plus, but perhaps too big of a renovation to undertake for an older bathroom. However, for a such a small space, it would be nice. There is a small window one can open, but that is it. The curtain doesn't cover the main window in front of the bed fully, so we had to secure it down for added privacy when changing.
On a final note, I didn't note what constituted a "small" room, so I called before booking it. I asked what the size was, and expected a "they are 15x20" or "300 square feet" - but they didn't know - only the size of a "medium bedroom". Again, the size was small, it didn't bother us, but if its important to some people, being able to say the exact size to someone in advance could avoid a lot of complaints, as I was somewhat concerned when I read some of the reviews. But it ended up being fine for us, even w/two large duffels and two labs.
