A very quiet and quaint little gem in the middle of nowhere. Sorry, Boulder residents. This place is spotless and meticulously maintained by it's owner operator. Internet service or cable would have been nice to end a long day's drive, but there was something nice about no cell service, no internet, and no TV. Well, rabbit ears and three channels... More

Clean, like when your mom is coming to visit clean. The bed had nice sheets with a high thread count and not threadbare. The shower had good pressure with no issues. The TV was almost unusable and there was no wifi. The room was just what we were looking for. Nice sized with an ac unit that worked perfect. Did... More

Very clean place and cozy. Camille, who is the owner, was friendly and provided info about what there is to do in the area. There is no internet but on this trip that was fine for me as the motel grounds were pretty with flower and rock gardens everywhere. Nice small porch with chairs which provided for a nice place...

In this day and age I expect to find WiFi at any hotel, especially for $ 85 a night, but the owner said she'd rather that we didn't have internet, so we can enjoy our stay better. Well, it's not like the hotel is some kind of resort! Plain, clean rooms. The outside is quite charming. The Anasazi museum across... More

The whole town of Boulder, UT is a bit of a throwback. It's a tiny tiny place in between remote locations. Pole's place, however, were happy to book ahead over the phone and sent us a brochure with advice on things to do in the area. The brochure also has some interesting stories about the history of the place, who... More

Boulder UT is a tiny town with 2 places to stay. I chose Poles Place as it has decent reviews here and it is not pricey. The woman who runs the place is pretty fussy about stuff and the towels and the soap provided were of the cheapest variety. We were there just for one night and it would have... More

You can't get any more remote in the Lower 48 and Poles Place is the right place to serve as your HQ while you explore the fascinating Escalante region. The owner, Camille, grew up in Boulder (Pole was her great grandfather and pioneered the valley in the early 20th century) and is the source of volumes of local lore and... More

This is a motel in the true sense, so don't expect frills, but if you want good advice for the area this is the place. Camille, the proprietor, offered great suggestions, some of which turned out to be the highlight of our trip...and we went to see 11 national parks on this vacation, so it's no small statement.

Stayed at this hotel as we travelled along the scenic highway 12. Comfortable and clean rooms, beds were comfortable. The owner offered suggestions for dinner. Would recommend. Poles Place breaks up the drive from Moab to Bryce Canyon. You can go to the Ansazi Museum across the street.

The rooms are basic with comfortable beds and are kept very clean. The location is good, just across from the museum and within walking distance to several good restaurants and beautiful views. The Owner / Caretaker is a whimsical person who is rapidly donating parking space to her wildflower garden that now spans around all sides of the lot and... More
