Our Story


Bonding Generations Through Storytelling

Imagine a place where majestic red rocks surround you everywhere you look and the thrill of adventures fills the air. Your day is benchmarked by the rising and setting of the sun and the dark skies are illuminated by the most stunning stars you have ever seen. You’re greeted by locals on every corner and you experience the best hospitality you’ve encountered as a traveler in a long time. This is the idyllic reality that awaits you in Moab, UT at the Expedition Lodge.

Nestled in the heart of downtown Moab, UT, the Expedition Lodge is the place to be for family get-togethers, exciting storytelling, and the start of your adventure of a lifetime. From the moment you step into the front door, there are countless opportunities that await you to relive the days of the past and still make new memories.

What used to be a residential dwelling for this once family-owned property is now a beautifully remodeled motel with a retro vibe. Step away from the hustle-and-bustle of the everyday and feel the serenity of days gone by. When you enter the lobby, you’ll be standing in the first owner’s living room. Now you can enjoy a casual seating area, decked out with vinyl albums of all the greatest hits. Share your favorite song with us! Looking over behind the current check-in area is what used to be the rest of this one-story home. Could you imagine the views outside right from the comfort of your own couch? Eat breakfast in the same kitchen and relax in the same living room the original family did. The original master bathroom is still intact…with the pink bathtub and wall of mirrors, how could you have demolished it? Now this 36-room motel offers all the comforts of home in each guest room, complete with a vintage mini-fridge and microwave…but the convenience of a modern Keurig! Take a dip outside in the year-round heated pool and hot tub. Gather with the family around the outdoor grills to enjoy a meal together before strolling up and down Main Street.

One story you can tell over and over again is about the painting in your room. Read more about Jerry Ehlers and his mark on Moab in the next story. You’ll be transported to another time and place, just like he always imagined. You’ll want to come back to Moab, UT and the Expedition Lodge with every generation. Tell your own story! We can’t wait to be a part of it.
