Located on Moab’s north end of town, the new My Place Hotel is just two miles from Arches National Park and a mile from downtown Moab. Brothers Craig and Mark Larsen, both of Utah, own and operate the franchise that opened April 6, 2022. A grand opening community celebration was held in September.

Set on a hillside with beautiful views overlooking the valley, amenities include an outdoor heated pool, jacuzzi, and a pavilion area for grilling. The jacuzzi is open year-round, and the pool remains open through Thanksgiving.

My Place Hotel rents rooms on a daily, weekly and long-term basis, including to TSA employees who stay at the hotel for six to nine months at a time while working at the Moab Regional Airport, said My Place operations manager Tanya Segura.

The hotel can accommodate lengthy stays because each room comes equipped with a full kitchenette that includes a stovetop, microwave oven, and full refrigerator, freezer and ice-maker. The rooms are perfect for those who prefer to cook their own meals when they travel.

My Place has 64 rooms – which often sell out during Moab’s busy tourist season. Choices include a single room with a king bed and recliner, or a double queen room. There are onsite guest laundry facilities, as well as a convenience store in the lobby with many food items for sale.

Friendly staff have put together guides to direct guests to local restaurants or sight-seeing adventure companies, such as High Point Hummer and ATVs, a company that offers discounts to My Place guests, said Segura.

Another amenity is a secure bike storage room located inside the hotel. There is also a designated outdoor area where you can wash your bike after taking it out onto dusty, backcountry trails.

My Place is pet-friendly, so feel free to bring your dogs! There’s a half-mile trail that takes off from the parking lot – called “My Place Trail” that climbs above the hotel for a good view of the Moab Valley.

My Place has super comfortable beds, says Segura, with its pillowtop mattresses, micro-fiber bedding, and a variety of both soft and firm pillows to meet guests’ various preferences.

My Place is located at 1520 N. Main St. and can be reached by calling 435-355-1050. For more information visit:
