It would be more than 4 hours before we reached Moab from Panguitch, Utah. This is our hiking vacation and we have made a conscious decision to NOT stay at any 3 or 4 star motel since a large portion of our days would be spent outside in National Parks.
We researched attentively basing on our objective and found Kokopelli Lodge at $69.00 plus applicable taxes. It was economically based on its convenient access to Arches and Canyonlands Parks. We registered easily to Room #9 by a friendly staff.
The room was tidy when we checked in. However, we were bewildered by the terrible condition of its carpet. There were countless of dark stains all over up to the middle of our very modest size room. It was unbelievable that any proprietor would offer a room with such an unsightly carpet. The décor of the room was fine. There were no drapes for window, pillow shams were not fresh and clean [one could tell rather easily] trash not emptied and room not straightened like they claimed they would. We overlooked that and make do with was provided.
The cleanest part of this motel was the bathroom. Simple, no toiletries but a good size container of body wash. The towels were coloured and not the traditional white that is industrial standard.
I am glad the past lodge dwellers have had a pleasant experience but not here at Room #9.
We attached photograph of the stains in carpet - a ballpoint pen on carpet for reference only.
