The launchpad for exploring the Arches and Canyonlands national parks, Moab is the unofficial recreation capital of Utah. This southwestern adventure hotspot isn’t just for humans, though — critters of all kinds are welcome to explore the great outdoors. These Moab pet-friendly hotels – which are all bookable on Culture Trip – cater to furry friends as much as to their owners.
On the banks of the Colorado River, SpringHill Suites by Marriott Moab is the closest Moab resort to the entrance of Arches National Park. When you’re not spending time in the park, relax by one of the outdoor hotel pools that have incredible red-rock views while the kids play in the designated splash area. For an additional fee, one pet is welcome per room.
The luxury tents at Under Canvas Moab connect travelers to nature – without the sometimes uncomfortable realities of camping. Expect complimentary camp activities, a nightly fire and s’mores, and grill and picnic areas combined with West Elm furnishings at this glamping site. You can bring three dogs of any size for an additional fee, and pets will certainly love the manicured trails and porchside critter viewing at the property.
Red-rock and blue-sky views greet you at Hyatt Place Moab. Just 5mi (8km) from Arches National Park, this hotel is the place to relax after a day in the sun, with poolside cabanas and outdoor fireplace lounges. Dogs under 50lb (22.5kg) are permitted at the property for an additional fee, and while they aren’t allowed on most trails at Arches or Canyonlands national parks, they can stretch their legs at the nearby Bark Park.
For an additional fee, both dogs and cats are welcomed with treats and a creekside walking trail at this desert-chic boutique hotel in Moab’s town center. Eclectically decorated condo-style rooms with private patios and balconies are large enough for the whole family – furry friends included. Bike owners can also rejoice: the Gonzo Inn offers a bicycle wash and repair station, as well as secure storage.
If you opt for the standalone bungalow accommodations at Moab Springs Ranch, your dog is allowed to come along for an additional fee. This Moab luxury hotel boasts rustic bungalows that feature kitchenettes and private porches with outdoor dining sets, so you can feast among the red rocks and shady cottonwood trees with sunset views. This intimate oasis also offers a stunning waterscape, natural springs, ponds, hammocks, and a heated pool and hot tub for the ultimate getaway.
A former residential home is transformed into an eclectic, retro motel in the heart of Moab at Expedition Lodge. Vintage records, microwaves and mini-fridges, as well as a classic games room, all hark back to the former life of the property, further echoed by the daily breakfast served in the original owner’s kitchen. Both dogs and cats are welcome – and are served up the finest treats – at no additional cost.
Located at the south end of Moab, Wingate by Wyndham Moab provides easy access to nearby trails in the La Sal mountains. A complimentary breakfast, laundry facility, pool and bike storage complete this comfortable and conveniently located hotel. Both canines and felines are invited to stay here at no additional cost, and , as one of the most dog-friendly hotels in Moab, the property offers a convenient dog park and pet relief area too.
Leaving your furry friend in capable hands at home? Check in to one of the best hotels in Moab that cater only for humans – all bookable with Culture Trip.
