Everything I need for comfort and every room comes with reference books for hikers and travelers which proved to be very useful. I was able to plan my hiking trips with the help of these books. Also the restaurant attached is really convenient.

Comfortable room, good service. TV's are updated, even though the pictures of the hotel do not show it. When we checked in, we were given extra information about the area, along with restaurant and hiking recommendations.

We're regulars to the Circle D. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly, and it's very convenient to the town, as well as, all the hiking available in Grand Staircase Escalante. The food in the restaurant is also excellent.

The in-wall heater and portable heaters kept those who wanted to be warm, warm, and I was nice and cold in...

Escalante is pretty small, so there are not a lot of options, but this is a great place to stay. The motel is by the road, and it's quiet and cozy. Our room had queen beds, it was not huge, but decent enough. Very clean and you could see it was well taken care of by the managers. It's a...

We spent two nights here this last week when our camping plans were interrupted by the weather. The room was clean with a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Staff was friendly. The attached restaurant was great.for both dinner and breakfast.

In town for a quick meeting and this hotel was just perfect for a quick overnight trip. My room had a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Rooms are on the smaller side but who is sitting in their rooms when visiting this beautiful area. High speed internet was really quick and hotel was clean.
