I've stayed at Bowen a number of times now. It's my favorite place to stay in my favorite town to visit. I really like Moab. Anyway, this year was a little different. We got the fancy room with the twin recliners, just like last year. The room is nice enough, a king, two recliners which are great to relax in after a day at the parks, a microwave and refrigerator. Clean, good service, a pool, pretty much just what I like. Except this year something odd was going on, everything in the room got damp. This is the middle of the desert, how can it get damp??? But it did. Kind of unpleasant to put on damp clothes in the morning. Everything just felt wet, it was very odd. And internet was odd too, they had some sort of firewall or something that would block a lot of things. No, I'm not talking anything strange, things like a search or even a second page on Newegg, a large online electronics retailer. I mean I got there and wasn't happy with my pictures so I wanted to look at cameras, but no, it wouldn't let me. An automotive forum, it wouldn't let me post anything. I know it wasn't the sites themselves as I could log on to the motel across the street and things worked fine. I asked the gentleman at the desk and he kind of made light of both the dampness and internet but said he'd try to reset it. Nothing changed.
The prices are reasonable, rooms are nice, service is nice, location is great, we walked to dinner every night, but it was definitely down a notch from the past. Much to my disappointment as I really like staying here.
