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

Four couples in our party stayed at the Prospector Inn for 3 nights. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. We ate breakfast at the restaurant and enjoyed the food and friendly cook and waitress. We wanted to experience Escalante and relax. Although this is nothing fancy, it was fun and everyone enjoyed their stay. We'll definitely stay... More

Great location for exploring the area around Escalante, Utah. Helpful and pleasant front desk personnel. The rooms are old, but clean and well cared for. They offer a microwave and frig in the rooms, and coffee at the front desk.

It isn't a Marriott, but it was a perfect base for exploring the canyons around Escalente, Utah. The rooms were clean. They had a microwave and frig. The women at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful.

The rooms are decent size, could use some decoration to make it a bit more cozy. The beds are rather on the small size. The room has a flat screen tv, a microwave and fridge but no coffee making facilities. In the bathroom you have a large mirror with lots of light. Breakfast is not inlcuded but there is a... More

While the room was OK (sink was clogged though..) the real bad experience was with the service. When we asked for a couple of extras the manager attitude was very unpleasant. when I asked for the owner's name, it turned into ugly scene. Long story short - unprofessional behavior - she raised her voice, accused us in various things, and... More

Stayed here one nite when we arrived a day early in Escalante and couldn't get a room in motel we had reservations with later in week. We found it clean but spartan accommodations. Lady who checked us in was very helpful and just a pleasure to talk with her. She gave us a lot of suggestions where to go and... More

We stayed here for one night during our 5 week exploration of the North West. The rooms are clean and comfortable and very basic. The hotel manager was very pleasant and helpful. No elevator. I would stay again.

We stayed at the Prospector Inn for one night in late September, using it as a base for a hike into Coyote Gulch. The lodging is basic and met our needs well. We had a first floor room and were able to easily move our luggage/gear into the room. (I don't believe there is an elevator for reaching the second... More
