Escalante is a very small town, but the Circle D Motel is a gem in the middle of it. When we first checked in, Robert was very helpful, and friendly. The room had a TV, microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker. The bathroom is small but very clean. The restaurant had great food, and really does have the best coffee we've... More

I had the opportunity to meet briefly with chefs Travis and Georgie and to try the food a few times. They are great people and the food they prepared was amazing. They helped to provide a great atmosphere. Nice job!! If I lived there I would eat there a lot!

Very nice facility and the hotel manager, Robert, was tremendous with his hospitality and knowledge of the area. As far as 4x4 driving goes, there was an adventure around every corner. Can't say how the food was since we didn't eat there but the menu looked awesome. Thanks Circle D!

We enjoyed our night at Circle D. Just a shame that the Circle D restaurant (different owners) was closed as the menu was very inviting. It had all the usual motel facilities, except for a swimming pool.

We stayed in the recently renovated room #1. It worked well for us with a kitchen and full fridge. Enjoyed our stay in the room. Everything seemed new except for the pullout bed, which worked well as a couch, but not so much as a bed. We'd definitely recommend this room.

We stayed at an offsite cottage. With the expectation it was off site like on the side of a hill, it was in the town of Escalante. A 2 bedroom 1 bath cottage. 1 Double, 1 bunk bed, and a futon. We laid out on the porch and watched the stars at night. It was comfortable but small and so... More

Estcalante is one of the beautiful places in Utah. I stopped for lunch in the Circle D Restaurant. I have to say the service & the excellent quality of their food was the best anyone could ever wish for. The hostess Wonda was so gracious, kind and accommodating, and the 1/3 lb. bacon burger was cooked to perfection so much... More

We had a nice stay in this motel. Sadly, the walls are quite thin and the a/c is rather loud. But they have quite fast internet and the rooms are allright. The best thing about it is the restaurant that belongs to the motel. We had one of our best meals on our journey there!!

We stayed for one night on our way across Utah. The man at the front desk was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The room (actually it was a two-room suite with fully equipped kitchen) was spacious and clean. It had several books about the area, useful for hikers or other travelers. WiFi worked all right. We didn't use restaurant,... More

Manager/owner very friendly and knowledgeable of the area, as well as a great advocate for the area. Restaurant was wonderful. Good service from Darrell who helped us celebrate a birthday with really good... More
