You betcha! In case you needed any further convincing that organizations reflect the values and qualities of their leaders, look no further than the Stone Lizard Lodge. Craig, the proprietor, is a quiet, mild mannered, knowledgeable and caring person. And that more or less is what you'll find at the Stone Lizard Lodge. It is quiet, modest and comfortable. If...

New owners have really picked this place up! We actually stayed in one of the few rooms that had not yet been renovated and it was still very nice. The owner was very gracious and offered good suggestions for dinner. Great value for the price and we would definitely stay here again.

My family and I were very happy that we choose to stay at the Stone Lizard! The rooms were very clean and recently remodeled. The beds are extremely comfortable, especially when compared to other motels that we have stayed at. The owners introduced themselves and could not have been more kind and friendly, and were willing to do anything they... More

The rooms are very basic and small. But the staff and owner(?) were very friendly and helpful. Most restaurants in Blanding were closed in January so we got take-out at a fast food joint. We will stay again in the summer.

At first glance, if you're the type that regularly stays at a corporate ran chain, you'd probably pass this place up, which would only be a loss for you. Stone Lizard is actually a very clean and comfortable place to stay if passing through town. Beds smelt fresh and clean, with plenty of pillows and warm linens. Restrooms were clean,... More

We really enjoyed staying here. Stayed for three nights over the holidays. The owners were super nice and accommodating. It was nice to have a fridge in the room and there is a grocery store right around the corner to stock it up. Would defiantly stay there again if we have the chance.

Some Units w/kitchens ... and at least a fridge,coffee maker and microwave. Some units are dog friendly. But the best was the owner, Craig Simpson. Not only did he help "jump" my car but gave us a wealth of info on local hikes. I highly recommend this motel!

Blanding is a nice little inexpensive town to base from and the Stone Lizard is the place to stay. Clean rooms, good bed and quiet. Locally owned and not a big chain. The owners are very nice and helpful with info about the area.

Sone Lizard Lodging is a nice, quiet little motel in the bland town of Blanding. The rooms have character, are clean and cozy and the service is good. We stayed in a suite with kitchen and two bedrooms with our two year old. He had a great time playing in the courtyard and overall it was a relaxing place to... More

Tis place is really cute and the folks are super friendly. The bathroom in our room was disgusting... Mold and mildew al over the shower stall...yuck! They need to rip all of the grout and caulk out od the shower and replace it, simple as that! I showered in flip flops because it was so gross. If this wasn't the... More

Thank you for the heads up on the problem in one of our rooms. We strive to keep our rooms clean, and in good shape, but obviously we let this bathroom grout get away from us. We replaced the bathroom tile flooring during our remodel, but the tile between the shower and stall did have a problem. After you brought... More
