Onion Creek: Quiet, peaceful campsite
There are two Onion Creek camping areas. Upper Onion Creek is the most popular and has several group sites. The Lower Onion Creek site is a 1/2 mile further down 128 (going east).
Very secluded, I have never had a problem camping here even though it is for groups. There is a pit toilet on site. Camping without reservations is $2.50 per person per night. A calendar is posted closer to the site, not on the kiosk. If no one is on the calendar you are free to camp (but you must pay).
Often there is no envelope here to deposit you money and tag your site. Be sure to stop at one of the other camping areas along the Colorado to pick one up.
Even though this is 20 miles east of Moab, I prefer Onion Creek over the other closer sites especially if you want quiet!
Remote location with a great sunrise looking at Castle Tower to the west and Fisher Tower just behind the site. There are fire pits and often plenty of firewood. There are also picnic tables.

Center Street Hotel: Moab's Cheapest Accomodations Downtown
Not only is this an inexpensive place to stay, but there is a shared kitchen on site which is completely equipped with all the dishes and utensils you may need. The bathrooms are communal and each room is decorated lavishly (some may say garishly) in a different theme. There was the African Safari Room, the Retro 50's Room and the Victorian Room that we stayed in, complete with ornately carved furniture and a trellised ceiling. We thought it was a fun and funky place to stay with a convenient location and a great price at $35/night.

J.R.'s Desert Inn: Good Place to Hang out
The place was very nice for the need. It was clean, TV worked and has fridge, microwave and coffee maker. That was about all I needed,but a good bed to boot. Wow. The places are set up to be, or once were apartment type units, so the rooms are extra large and the bathroom huge. It may be older, but beat the heck out of a chain, or a locl name brand rip off for dollars.
Liked the location, the large rooms and the amenities to cook, and cool foods/beverages.

BLM Campgrounds: Hotels are for women
There are DOZENS of campgrounds. All have extreme scenery. Why would anyone be so stupid and stay in a hotel/motel? Bring tent or RV-thingy and set-a-spell outside. Gaze at the rock cliffs that the locals call "desert tapestry." It's no lie!
The State (Dead Horse) and Fed (Canyonlands) are always booked solid. With the Euro so strong the foreigners are taking up all the "brochure" sites that can get reserved. Nothing wrong with that though---its great they're spending their money in the USA.

Various types of Accommodations
Being a tourist town there are a number of motels to choose from. You will also find campgrounds in the National Parks and at Dead Horse State Park. See the tourist information web site listed below for a variety of motels, bed and breakfasts, hotels, and campgrounds. We were traveling with our 22 ft. fifth wheel trailer and camped in the National Parks. Devils Garden in Arches is about 5 miles north of Moab on Us 191 to the park entrance, then another 18 miles into the park. Be aware that there are no showers or electricity. We also camped in the Island in the Sky and Needles areas of Canyonlands National park, and again there are no showers or electricity. These are wonderful areas to make as a home base if you plan on doing a lot of hiking. Come well supplied, as you will have to return to Moab if you need to stock up on groceries or other items.

Morris Last Resort: Fantastic Morris Last Resort ****
Morris Last Resort Cabins is absolute heaven. Really. Go for the cabins in the mountains. Peaceful. Two story cabins very comfortable. Downstairs has bedroom, bath, living room and kitchen. Upstairs has bedroom and sitting room with TV. DECKS on both top and bottom levels. Cabins face east, so decks face east and south. Great views. Quiet. Wonderful. Would go down to Moab to hike, eat etc, but found going back up to cabin very attractive as the quiet just drew me and I enjoyed just sitting on the deck reading, listening to nothing and feeling very peaceful.
How many times can I use the phrase peaceful, quiet in a description. It's the best. Get away from the noise of Moab and stay in the mountain cabins.

Kokopelli Lodge: Nice Place That Allows Dogs
Not the fanciest or newest place in town. But the staff, which consisted of one guy named Rick on our stay (I think he's the owner) was friendly and helpful.
It's one block off of the main street and all the commercial amenities offered in Moab.
There is a nice little covered porch and some chairs so you can sit right in front of your room and relax. They also have a grass area with a couple of tables and chairs under some big trees.
I got wireless access from somewhere in the area. I don't know whether it was provided by the motel or just in the air from somewhere else.
The place could use a little maintenance but not so much as to make it unbearable. I've come to expect that trade for a place that accepts dogs.

Shady area next to the Colorado River: Good Camping Spot
Stayed here for a couple of days in June. It was really hot outside by then, so this camping spot with lots of trees was a haven after a day of MTB and hiking. The cost is only $5/vehicle/night. Bathroom within walking distance.

I highly recommend the Hotel...
I highly recommend the Hotel Off Center at 96 East Center St. in 'Downtown' Moab, it's very funky with every room a different experience. The owner worked on movie and commercial sets, and has put his talents into creating a great lodging destination!
Unique room designs, including a western 'cowboy' room, a theatre room, a miners cabin complete with mine entrance, and much more.
