The first room I was assigned had some kind of weevil bug in both beds. The front office offered to change the linens, but obviously the room needed a thorough cleaning. So she changed me to the handicapped room. The room was at the far end of the facility with no Wi-Fi reception, had holes in the chairs, sheets, and... More

Stopped here after Bryce Canyon on our way to Capital Reef. Clean and price was OK, but nothing special, but what do you want in the middle of nowhere. A few restaurants in the area. Room had frig and micro.

Not much to say here, either good or bad. The rooms were clean and standard size. Everything worked and the beds were comfortable. If you find yourself in Escalante and need a place to stay I would recommend the Prospector Inn.

We were driving through to go the bryce canyon. We could not have found and better place. The rooms were huge, bathroom very clean, fridge and a microwave. The price was great the staff was so friendly really gave you the small town charm. Close to lots of things to do.

I stayed here with my three children for a few days. It was very affordable. The room was clean and the bathroom was spotless. And there was free WiFi! They do not take reservations online and you only pay for the room when you get there. It was truly a "Mom and Pop" operation. I will most definitely be back!

We stayed here for one night during our trek deeper into the national parks on the byways through Utah. The rooms are dated but clean and comfortable. The heater/air unit worked great, there was always hot water, a television, and quiet. I could hardly hear the upstairs and next door stay overs. The wifi worked pretty well, it went down... More

Really nice and very efficient lady in the reception, nothing was too much trouble for her, the rooms are reasonable size, equiped with fridge and microwave. The decoration and furniture are in good order and the beds are very comfortable. I was very pleased to find the Prospectors Inn and I will be very happy to stay here again.

We were in the Escalante, Boulder area of Utah for a wedding and needed a decent, reasonably priced motel for 2 nights. We had a good sized, clean room in this newish facility. The beds were comfortable and the manager will loan an iron and mini ironing board if you have the need. Their attached restaurant was for sale at... More

We stayed overnight here when we were travelling between Bryce and Arches. The room was neat and clean, bed was comfortable. The area was quiet and the woman at the front desk was friendly and quick with helping to check in and the next morning to check out. The price was right. I doubt that we will be travelling that...

This place is very well kept place to stay, very nice people and extremely accommodating. As a driver who delivers batteries once a week to Utah valley this place is the motel to be at! Prices are reasonable and Front desk always knows who I am and where I like to stay since I drive a big truck to travel... More
