Circle D motel and Robert, the manager, who works all the time.Very knowledgeable about the area and willing to share. The slot canyons are a real treat. Explore them with safety and remember to read guide book on getting through them. Can't be to heavy. some are very narrow.

Family of 4, we stayed in one of the suites...two older rooms converted into one with a kitchenette, and it was perfect! We bought a few groceries, cooked out own meals in the equipped kitchen, and slept well in the two queen beds. The staff was very helpful and friendly with any needs we had.

I wanted a place for 5 people to sleep in Escalante, and the Circle D's Cozy Cottage was the only place that fit the bill. What a gem! The Cozy Cottage is actually an older house that the motel purchased about two blocks from the main hotel. Image visiting your Grandma's house and you will have a good idea about... More

Stayed at the Cottage for 1 night over Easter week at the last minute. Stayed under similar circumstances in a motel room here about 8 years ago too. There have been numerous renovations and improvements since then. We were a party of 3 adults and 3 kids. The place was very very clean, which is sometimes hard to do in... More

Room was clean, staff friendly, view on drive into town from either direction is fantastic. One thing disappointing is that the internet connect needs to be upgraded to handle the current load of various devices. Took a long time to connect ( if it did) and then was extremely slow. Otherwise OK.

We stayed here for three nights over Easter this year and found the accommodation very comfortable and reasonably priced. There is not a lot of competition in Escalante so being #1 is not particularly difficult and to be fair the rooms are showing their age if you look closely. Overall however we were pleased with our stay and it is... More

Unpleasant stay. The service was not very hospitable and friendly. One of the ladies actually told us she was too cold to go outside and get us more towels from the storage room and asked if we could do it ourselves. The Internet is a joke. They advertise that it is free, but no matter how may times they reboot... More

Clean, friendly; no extra frills , but has everything you need. Small patio to sit and have coffee in the morning. Outfitters across the road with great pizza and salad. Close to the park's visitor center.
