WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY
Stayed here for two nights. Chara was super helpful and friendly. Checking in and out was a breeze. The beds were comfortable, the microwave was great, and the fridge was spacious. WiFi worked great. Wooden interiors were super cute. Would stay here again.
This is a charming place with excellent staff. Rooms are comfy and immaculately clean. If you are looking for new or modern go elsewhere, but if you want a great bed and all the required amenities you are in the right place! Location is great as well and we walked to “center” for dinner and hopped next door to the grill for breakfast.
We love the Big Horn Lodge. It is reasonably priced, in a great location for Jeepers, and has an old school atmosphere. We have stayed here 3 different times. We would be disappointed if we had to stay anywhere else In Moab. The people who work at the Big Horn Lodge are awesome too.
