We arrived in Escalante late in the day. We decided to stay the night. We contacted the office which was in the home of the people that own/run the motel. We checked the room and found it to be dated but clean. The bathroom was clean and in good repair. The TV was an old model but fit right in... More

Rooms are small and bath room is so small you can't turn around in front of the sink. There is NO breakfast so figure that into the price. The rooms were clean and it is run by an older couple who were very nice, although not didn't know what to do with a wi-fi problem. The old TV hangs on... More

We were on our way to Boulder and got to the top of the Great Escalante Staircase but were too tired to go down the other side. Did not expect it to be cheap in this tourist area but was reasonable. The room had a fridge but no microwave. The owners were very helpful and even boiled me some water... More

Booked online, sight unseen. Basic but clean room with an odd, tiny bathroom. The desk person (owner?) was unwelcoming. Went back to the office to get a pillow, but she had gone home a short time after we checked in around 5:00 p.m, with a sign posted in the window that she will return the naxt day at 4:00 pm....

We stayed at the Padre Motel during September of 2011. Some of the other motels were already sold out and we started checking some 3 months prior! So, if going during the cooler fall months be sure to book early. By default we stayed at the Padre Motel. It was very dated, with small rooms, located on East Main street,... More

Clean, quiet small motel. Nothing fancy, but, nice and large rooms with all the amenities you need - and a very comfortable bed! The owners are very friendly people. Ideal for the Grand Staircase Escalante on Highway 12 scenic byway. I rate it "very good" not in comparison to expensive places in cities, but in comparison to other places in... More

This may have been a cute off the beaten track place in 1970..they do have color TV, flush toilets,and at door parking. In the peak season (Sept) the "mini-suites"..and I mean "MINI" run $110/after tax $125. This is an owner occupied property (the Lymans). The Mrs. Lyman skirts "surly"..think of the 3rd grade nun who despised your very existence. Despite... More

This is my second time staying at the Padre. There are lots of choices in the town but I like the Padre. It is a small motel with basic amenities. We've always been treated well by the owners there which is one reason we've returned. We've always stayed in the very small but comfortable mini suite. The 2 bedrooms are... More

When I called asking for info about a room, a male voice told me it was $55.00 for 2 rooms available. The call was discontinued but I called back, to be told by a woman's voice it was $65.00. So I said, "Well how many rooms do you have?" "Well, how many rooms do you need?" in a huffy tone... More

The Padre Motel has 3 room types; single queens, single kings, and mini-suites with 2 queen beds in adjoining rooms. Each room type has a different price. If you ask about the different rooms and their prices you’ll get 3 different straight answers; first, second & third. A reservation for a king bed in September is $75+tax; approximately $84 total....

I enjoyed my stay at the Padre Motel, and it served as an excellent basecamp for exploring the plateaus and valleys of Escalante. The proprieters were extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the area. The room was very clean and quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable. There were also other nice conveniences, like a refridgerator in the room and a... More
