Arches National Park is one of our nation’s most beloved national parks.
Arches National Park is one of our nation’s most beloved national parks. And it’s pretty easy to understand why when you see the beautiful and unique topography of the area that you really can’t find anywhere else. So if you are planning a vacation to Arches and are looking for a great place to rest your head at night, then this article is going to be just the thing you are looking for.
Today I have a list of all the great hotels you can find around the area. I’ll try to give you the most accurate prices you will pay for a room at each of these places the best that I can. But keep in mind that during the peak season (late spring, summer, and early fall) there is so much more foot traffic in the area that the prices of rooms will spike pretty drastically. So I would recommend you reserve a room as early as possible.

Moab Springs Ranch is one of the most popular hotels you can find near Arches National Park. And the reason it has become so popular is because it features a large private park, a heated swimming pool, hot tubs, beautiful ponds, grills to barbeque on, nice flowing water features, and hammocks that are hung in the shade of the gorgeous cottonwood trees that grow on the property.
And you get all of that luxury in one convenient location that is located by downtown Moab, Arches National Park, and the Colorado River. And in the past couple of years they have even started offering private bungalows with private decks and kitchenettes in them that also feature convenient parking right next to the bungalow.
They offer one, two, and three bedroom townhouses that have full kitchens in them with covered parking and patios. And on top of all of that, they even strive to be an eco-friendly property. So even though you can’t get just a standard room like you would in a generic hotel, you get a much more private and secluded place to spend your nights after a long day of exploring Arches National Park. They even have bike access to some of the incredible trails that surround Moab.
The accommodations average out to around $286 dollars a night. But that can vary pretty widely with the season. So if you are planning on going in the summertime, you might be able to save some money by booking well in advance.
“Stayed in one of the bungalows. Absolutely lovely space -- cozy, comfortable, with a kitchenette included. Ideal for resting up after exploring Arches and Canyonlands, with a coffee shop on the property and Moab about five minutes away.” - Yelp Review

If you are hoping to save some money on your lodgings during your trip to Arches National Park and are willing to sacrifice some of the luxury that Moab Springs Ranch offers then you are going to want to check out The Best Western Plus in Canyonlands.

And for that money you will get everything that you need to unwind after a long day of exploring the park. Each room obviously has free Wi-Fi access and a high definition tv. And there is of course a mini-fridge, a microwave, and a coffee pot.

I mean, I would think hiking around the park all day would be enough for most people, but I understand that staying on a routine can be really helpful for many people/

The Inca Inn Motel is a non-chain motel that has been a part of Moab for over 60 years. And they haven’t managed to stay in business for so long by providing a subpar experience for their guests.
