This is the only year-round hotel in Escalante. Our second floor room was a basic room with two double beds (we were told all rooms have double beds). There was a mini fridge and microwave but we didn't use either. There is a flat-screen TV and a small round table and two chairs. The room had good lighting and several... More

The building itself is solid and the room has everything you need , wifi, fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, but the sheets were scratchy and the carpet was dirty. I mean not only old but not vacuumed! Heater smelled moldy. TV may not get all channels,need to call front desk to fix.

This place was my second choice because the first one was already booked due to some type of convention. I have to say that the room was clean and spotless. The place does have a microwave and a small refrigerator. The setting was set too cold as my drinks were frozen. There is no coffee maker so you have to... More

We had driven that day through Zion Natl Park, Bryce National Park and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and were really worried if we would get a room and what kind we would get. We stopped at Prospector Inn which looks much like any other small town motel. Check in was very friendly and the room was as good as any... More

Had an enjoyable stay at this hotel. Room was very clean and spacious. Comfortable bed. The only thing missing was a hair dryer.Tasty coffee was offered in the lobby. Owners were very nice to talk to. Would definitely stay here again!

I would recommend staying here if you go to Escalante. However, that has more to do with the limited options in Escalante than the hotel itself. The price is very reasonable and the rooms are adequate. The first room they gave us smelled really bad so we asked to change rooms. The second room smelled clean and was in much... More

The room was clean. The staff was friendly. It's close to what little there is Escalante. But if you're staying in Escalante you're not there for what's in Escalante, but what's outside. The beds were just OK, but we didn't care after putting about 15 miles a day on our feet hiking both days we were there. The water pressure... More

The choices for accommodation in Escalante are few and this motel, who has been there unchanged for many years, provides a very basic accommodation. The place is clean and you will have a good night sleep. Not much else.

At ~$60/night, not a bad deal. No breakfast, bare basics only, but at least it is clean with a functioning shower, clean bathroom and a comfortable bed for the night. Coffee and ice available in the lobby.

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
