Bottom Line

The mid-range, 80-room Best Western Plus Canyonlands Inn is centrally located in Moab, a short drive from Canyonlands National Park. The hotel offers simple rooms with flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges as well as suites with kitchens or kitchenettes, fireplaces, and living rooms. Some guests have complained that soundproofing in rooms is poor, which is particularly noticeable on the ground floor, so light sleepers should request a room on an upper level. Other features include a 24-hour front desk, a patio deck overlooking the La Sal Mountains, a seasonal pool, two hot tubs, a playground, a modern gym, and on-site bike repairs with storage.

Oyster Hotel Review

Best Western Plus Canyonlands Inn


Comfy value hotel with southwestern charm and a patio with scenic views

The Best Western Plus Canyonlands is a centrally located two-story Moab chain hotel with a predominantly red-brick exterior. The lobby is sunny, with traditional southwestern furnishings and decor and a coffee counter with a microwave. The lounge area has a couple of chairs and a brown leather sofa and there's a stairway and a single elevator connecting the lobby with the upper levels. Hallways are dimly lit and have pinewood wall paneling. On the second floor, there's a patio with a wooden-beamed roof that's furnished with tables, cushioned lounge chairs, and a fire pit. The hotel appeals to families and couples who want a reasonably priced hotel near the area’s popular hiking trails. Rates, though, can be pricey at peak season.
