Nothin' to complain
As a very critical hotel guest, I really don't get the negative reviews people make here. First of all, yes, Red Cliffs is a 20min drive away from Moab, but you should've known when you booked, it’s not a secret or trying to hide this… This is absolutely an amazing experience in the middle of the canyon. Our lodge had a spectacular view just a couple meters away of the Colorado. As an European, this was the most close of experiencing the life of a cowboy ;)
Dining on the deck, with an amazing panoramic view, that alone was worth the bit more expensive pricing. But still reasonable. Unless you are used to go to fast food places... (p.s. if you have to drive to and from Moab downtown costs you gas = dollars too!!)The food was great, the staff warm and very friendly. They let us try two wines before we choose which wine to drink and stayed on the deck, until sunset.
The breakfast, those who complain that it’s wasn’t good, you are spoilt! Plenty of choice from both cold and warm food.
We went horseback riding, which has been one of the best memories of the entire trip we’ve made, friendly staff and an amazing experience.
During our 3 weeks trip, we’ve stayed in 15 hotels and this was one, by far, of our favorites.
