My family and I stayed here on a recent summer vacation in the past and we had a great stay! The room we stayed in was amazing! It was very cozy and comfortable. The manager, Robert, was very nice and he gave us great tips on things to do, where to eat, and more. If we stay in Escalante in...

We spent a month backpacking in south central Utah, and stayed at Circle D whenever we wanted a motel night. I highly recommend it -- a comfortable, convenient, clean and quiet jumping off place for area adventures. The manager, Robert, remembered us whenever returned and gave us our favorite room whenever it was available. The restaurant is decent, although it...

This is our second year staying here and we will be back. Great location, great price, clean, and super friendly staff. Refrigerator and microwave in room is a huge plus. The resturant has great food.

We booked a trip to Southern Utah on Hwy 12 after several days of skiing in SLC. We wanted a short break from skiing to get our legs back but also to see a completely different part of Utah. We booked Circle D in Escalante and were very happy with it. It's a low maintenance, family run motel. It's quiet...

My wife & I stayed on two occasions. First for one night and returned @ a week later for two nights. This is a "family owned" type small town motel, not part of a large chain. Very friendly and accommodating front desk staff. We were there in off season and restaurant was closed, as was most of Escalante. When we...

The Circle D was one of the few places open in Escalante in December (town was pretty much closed for business at that time of year). Robert-- the front desk manager--- warned me that there wouldn't me much in the way of restaurants then (and the motel restaurant was closed), and I appreciated that warning. The reception area looked like...

I stayed here while doing some hiking & photography in the Escalante area. There is a restaurant on the premises. If you are a hiker, you would really like this motel. My room had hiking books for the Escalante area. I will stay here again.

The Circle D motel was simple and clean. It was a great place to stage our adventure into the backcountry in the jeep and see the slot canyons. It is perfect place to get a great night sleep and a hot shower after hiking all day. The staff was kind and knowledgeable about the area and the sights. Each room...

The check in was easy and the clerk was very informative. He gave us a lot of good ideas on things to do in the area. This is a very small town. There are not a lot of restaurant choices. No way does Circle D deserve a four-star. There is no pool, no hot tub, no breakfast. You must go...
