The best view in town

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 13, 2009

The Lodge is located about 14 miles from Moab and its lights. This backdrop was used in several western films including those with John Wayne.

Upon arrival we were greated by very helpful staff members and their delicious cookies. The rooms are stocked with refrigerators, microwaves, a kitchen area, lounge area, and a patio boardering either the Colorado River or Clear Creek.

Dinner is available in both the Lounge and Dining Room here at the lodge, and a wine tasting event is run all afternoon.

Breakfast at Red Cliffs Lodge was on par with the other hotels along our trip. That is to say that there were several choices and everyone went away with a full belly and nary a complaint. The sunrise presents itself outside the huge glass windows boardering the restaurant. Wake up a bit early to enjoy the best of these sights.

Unique Quality: At the Red Cliffs Lodge travelers are afforded a sight not usually available. I live in a great neighborhood in Medina, Ohio that has a nice sunset, but at night seeing the stars is difficult. The streetlights and close city center keep us from this enjoyment. At Red Cliffs Lodge there is lighting to walk around, but nothing else for about 14 miles. Looking at the sky is like being in a planatarium, only much more vast and impressive.

One of America's Original Ranches

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 14, 2008

The Red Cliffs Lodge is a wonderful ranch about 30-minutes drive from downtown Moab. The lodge is located in an exquisite location along the Colorado River and it's actually one of America's oldest ranches - the original owner's grave is still on site. It's a great place to retreat for a few days and enjoy nature at its best. The ranch is surrounded by beautiful 2000-ft Red Rock Cliffs and a lovely on-site vineyard. I would absolutely recommend staying at this lodge if you plan to visit Moab and here is why:

Service - The service was fantastic. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Upon check-in, I was greeted with a warm cookie. Additionally, I requested turn-down service at no extra charge. If I wanted to, the staff would've booked activities on my behalf such as hiking, horse riding, off-roading, mountain biking and river rafting.

Facilities - I was pleasantly surprised with the room. The bathroom was large and beautifully decorated. The bed area was roomy and elevated in comparison the kitchenette and private patio. And "yes!" I said kitchenette. The kitchenette -- large enough for a family of four -- was comprised of a sink, microwave, refrigerator, utensils, plates, dinning table and a sofa. And if I had brought my lap top, I could've surfed the Internet from my room. (They also had two Internet stations in the lobby).

Views - The views from the patio were impressive. Not only did I have an amazing view of the Colorado River and the beautiful red-rocks, I was only 100-ft from the water!

Superb Restaurant - The Cowboy Grill was a delicious restaurant with a fantastic outdoor terrace overlooking the river. The food was quite delicious and during my two-night stay at the lodge, I did not feel the need to drive back to downtown Moab for dinner. Finally, the restaurant had plenty of options to satisfy vegetarians and carnivores alike!

Family Friendly - The lodge is quite ideal for families. The suites and cabins were roomy and the grounds offered plenty of distractions for kids, and adults, such as – a swimming pool and jacuzzi, tennis courts, exercise room, volleyball, large tepees (near Pioneer River Deck), swings, horses (at Corral) and a movie history museum.

Unique Quality:
* Large rooms with views of the Colorado River and Red Rock Cliffs
* Fantastic remote location (this can also be a burden - it depends on the guest)
* Movie History Museum - You can see memorabilia of famous movies that were filmed in the Red Rock Canyons. Remember "Thelma and Louise" or " Mission Impossible" or "Indiana Jones"?
* All in one - Everything you need is right there on site (they even have laundry)
* Castle Creek Winery - This winery produces 4000 cases of wine
* Wonderful service - Warm cookies, friendly staff and to-go lunch boxes
* Great food
* Creepy grave on site - actually it's not that creepy, but still
* Vineyard
* Horses

Directions: From downtown Moab: Go down Main St./191 towards the 70. Turn right onto Hwy 128. If you pass Arches National Park, turn around. From the 70: Take 191 towards Moab. You'll pass Arches National Park and the Colorado River Bridge. Turn left onto Hwy 128.

Ideal location

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 3, 2008

We were able to stay a few nights in this most magical of locations. Situated on a bend of the Colorado it is a quiet retreat from the more hectic pace in Moab. We ate dinner on the deck as the sun was setting. The river gently flowed past, the cliffs turned red and the feeling was strong, "this is when you know life is good".

Unique Quality: The main lobby and restaurant are separate from the other accommodations. We could park right in front of the room, but it was a slight walk back to the restaurant. We enjoyed a queen room that was really more like a suite. There was room for more than the two of us. We also had a little kitchenette and patio. The rooms were very nice, upscale from the usual Moab hotels. There are also cottages along the river which can sleep more people.

The food was good. They grow their own grapes as well and serve their own wine. An unusual accomplishment for Utah.

In conjunction with the hotel is a film museum. The land was once a ranch and many movies were filmed nearby over the years. And many of the stars were friends or visitors to the ranch. It was interesting to see the films, the stars and the locations.

I took no pictures. I just savored the experience, but the website is representative of the hotel.

Directions: Away from town, by itself, along the Colorado River
