My husband and I spent 2 nights here and had a wonderful stay. The Front Desk staff---Gloria, Dawn, Jennifer and Amy were all very friendly and helpful. Our meal at the restaurant was excellent, although pricey. I had the elk and it was so tender ("like buttah"). Our room was very nice and comfy with a beautiful view of the Colorado River. We had a private little patio so we could relax and soak up some rays. There are plenty of activities---bicycling, hiking, rafting, walking, horseback riding, a pool, a hot tub and an exercise room. We took a lot of photos and did a lot of walking, plus we did some off-roading in our small SUV to Fisher Valley, which was fun. Not for huge SUV's due to a couple of narrow passages. Definitely not for cars as the stream crosses the dirt road 27 or 28 times. For those who are not into nature and beautiful redrock landscapes, this may not be the right place for you. Moab is a small town which is located 14 miles from the lodge. There a quite a few motels, interesting shops, restaurants, outdoor outfitters and a brewery. So, if you are looking for a big town and huge nightlife, you're in the wrong part of the world. There is a playground at the lodge and lots of open space for kids to run and play with supervision, because of the proximity to the Colorado. The lodge has it's own water system, so the water out of the taps in the room doesn't taste very good. Although we brought our own bottled water, the blue reverse osmosis faucets (one in the kitchenette and one in the bathroom) was fine for drinking, making coffee and tea. The room comes with a kitchenette which includes a sink, small frig, microwave and a coffee maker (coffee, tea, etc.,provided). There are place settings for 4---dishes, cups, water glasses, wine glasses and silverware. I'm sure if you needed more that the Front Desk would provide those for you. We stopped at City Market in Moab before heading out to the lodge and bought a few groceries. The lodge does have a an all-you-can eat breakfast ($9.95 per person during the week and $12.95 per person for Sunday Brunch), but since we don't eat that much nor did we want to pay that much, we ate the food that we had bought for breakfast in Moab. The lodge does not serve lunch, although box lunches can be ordered in advance. I'm sure they are pricey. Again, we ate the food that we had bought in Moab---we made sandwiches and took a picnic. A small insulated collapsable cooler is perfect for this. The linens and towels were all clean and fresh. I must say, the king-size bed is the most comfortable I've ever experienced at a hotel/lodge/motel. The weather was nice for this time in the fall. The country is stunning and beautiful. Also not to be missed---Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park. It would be nice to go to one of those other parks if you have an extra day or two after visiting Red Cliffs. We plan on going to the lodge in early spring next year and taking a rafting trip. Don't miss Redd Cliffs Lodge. It is a very peaceful and beautiful part of Utah!
