I want to insure that everyone has fun in MOAB..... Despite the punishing heat...... For some reason, I feel responsible. Please indicate you departure date too and any special needs you may have. I don't recommend camping in July.

I am going to head home on Tues the 21st. So I was hoping to hit the trails on sunday and monday. Saturday I would like do some trails if somebody else is there if not I'll just do the tourist thing and go to canyonlands or arches national parks.

I'm thinking we'll leave Ouray on Saturday and come out to Moab thru Monday, leaving Tuesday.

What do you advise for economical lodging in the AC in/around Moab? We're normally campers, but if the heat is that bad I want another option.

In MOAB it can get REAL economical..... and gross. What's everyones budget per night? I've stayed there in the $60 - $70 range and it was very borderline. I won't mind trying to negotiate a deal if I can get an idea of the total rooms we'll need.

For the record...... none of you deserve this....... :D

The least amount of ghetto as possible for the lowest dollar amount. :lol: I don't dig disgusting, but it doesn't have to be anything fancy either. Clean with AC is good.

The rates are actually pretty high considering the time of year... I am surprised.

It seems that the best deals that can be had right now is:

Super 8 - $86

River Canyon Lodge - $80

The later hotel does not have breakfast but I believe the Super 8 does. I stayed at the River Canyon during EJS and the rate was $64 so that's pretty interesting.

Wonder why the price went up so much then. Either of those would probably be fine. I doubt that we could get any extra discount... there's really not going to be enough of us there to justify it.

Do rooms fill up quick there - do you advise reserving rooms early? Only asking because our schedule is still kind of on the flexible side. I don't want to reserve for Saturday night, and then not show up till Sunday...

It shouldn't be a problem getting a room in July. The rates are based upon double occupancy I should add.

If my lift is on and I'm around I would be up for Saturday and Sunday. I am only about an hour or so away. The boss wants us to move back to the northwest but if I'm here I may have room for visitors.

You will not need a lift as much as you will need skids. If you lift it and still have no skids I don't recommend going out there. Durangotang ran all the trails we will before he lifted but his skids got a workout. I am lifted and all of my skids are dinged and bent.
