Stayed in the shady lady room 9-19 for 2 nights. Little concerned by 1st view, but truly can not judge book by cover. The interior of the inn was very nostalgic, with old mining remnants, and the room was perfect, from the memory foam mattresses to the clean carpets and fluffy towels. The owner Bob chatted about the history of... More

We stayed at the campground on same property. The shower house was bug infested with inches of standing water and a water stained ceiling, the dirtiest place I have ever seen. Leaking & water stained. The owner said he never visits this part of the property. No hot water, owner fixed it but never cleaned anything or shut off the... More

Room was small and basic but clean. Bed comfortable. Walls are a bit thin but normally the place is pretty quiet. We did hear some kids running in the hall about 10 PM. Place wanted to appear old but everywhere I looked it was new wood so I don't know. Restaurant had only a couple of diners. Owner acted a... More

This was alright for one night. Room was very small and right above the restaurant, which was closed because it was sunday. Next time I would probably stay in a bigger room or somewhere else, but this was cheap and worked for one night.

Looking for an overnight stop for our camper, read about this place and stopped in to check it out. The restaurant looked ok, pretty rustic but interesting. The campground itself was a bit of a disaster. The parking sites were set up helter-sketler, just a single narrow, hilly gravel two track to access them. Not sure if a larger RV... More

What a great find! We were the only guest that evening. The owner Bob cooked us the best dinner, stacey our waitress was awesome. They both stayed and talked with us after the restaurant closed. Lots of laughs and fun. If you are looking to stay in a big city with lots to do this is not for you. We... More

We had a wonderful relaxing time, it was like be taking away to another time, just what we needed. The food was excellent, the service was great and the accommodations were wonderful. Would recommend this place as must stay when traveling Utah. I am hoping to bring my entire family back next summer for a family reunion.

This place gives you a wonderful taste of the old west in a setting of rustic western charm and cedar trees. The proprietor Bob welcomes you like an old friend and makes sure your stay is comfortable, peaceful and relaxing. His charm and the inn itself have a cowboy edginess to them that make you wish you had a horse... More

We stopped the Runnin' Iron Inn to break our journey from Arches NP to Durango. After reading rave reviews, we were surprised and a little alarmed to find the Inn deserted when we arrived. We set up our tents round the back of the Inn and wondered what we were in for! We were, in fact, in for a wonderful... More
