Nice motel. We rented three rooms for one night. Rooms clean, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker . Good wi-fi . You can park right in front of your room. For people passing through- good place to stay overnight.

A nice, clean motel built along the classic model where you park in front of your room. Under the new owner, it has gone through much needed renovation. Still work in progress. The restaurant in the front is another good reason to stay at Circle D. We felt that the rooms were priced on the high side. If the owner... More

For a motel this is five star. Very clean and newly renovated. It's a great base for doing hikes in the area. Our group rented four rooms. We ordered pizza from the escalante outfitters down the road and sat on the porch to eat and drink wine. We had a great time with a view of the mountains.

We stayed in room #5, which had a well equipped kitchenette and was clean and comfortable. The friendly owner welcomed us in the office. The local guide books in the room were very helpful for planning the next day's hike. The room had good wifi. The restaurant next door served good food including local grass fed beef hamburger which was... More

We stayed in #1, the Suite, and it was very clean and the bathroom was remodeled. Nice beds. The only complaint was the internet was kind of slow, but what do you expect in a rural hotel? The front desk people were very helpful and friendly. We had breakfast at the restaurant next door and the sourdough toast was delicious!

Best espresso ever at the restaurant!! The manager was very helpful, we liked that the hotel provided books to read more about the next... More

We stayed in Room 1 and 2 (kitchenette had a full size fridge). Very clean, quiet rooms; good selection of TV channels; plenty of towels; restaurant next door was very good; only downside to the hotel was the sleeper sofa--neither one of the boys could sleep on it--they said it was the most uncomfortable ever with broken springs and rods....

We needed a place to stay for one night as we traveled toward Monument Valley. We stayed at the Circle D because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We stayed in room #1 which also includes #2. The manager, Robert, told us the rooms were renovated in 2009. There are beautiful hardwood floors, a renovated bathroom, and... More

We stayed in the room with a kitchenette - it was extremely comfortable for 4 adults and we enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I loved the Circle D restaurant - their burgers and ribs were fantastic! I Highly recommend both the motel and restaurant. The owner was friendly, provided us with hiking guides, tips... More

I really liked the fact they had trail maps to look at in the room and the breakfast at their restaurant was outstanding. Quiet and easy to find. The Escalante River walk is very beautiful and close. Great time!
