Top shelf, clean comfortable room. Fantastic value. Great TV, Great restaurant. Cell coverage a little sparse but we were on vacation not there to talk on the phone. The scenery is like a post card. Will return and next time bring the golf clubs.

I reserved TWO rooms online by mistake. It was just because of internet problem. I didn't recognize it before I try to check in. I asked to cancel one of them, They denied. I used ONE room, while the other UNUSED, but paid. I have very bad experience about this hotel.

We used this as our base for day-trips to Zion, Red Canyon and Bryce - had a wonderful time. Front desk staff were amazing; helpful and friendly. Room was spacious, clean and very comfortable for two adults and children. We ate dinner one night in the restaurant and enjoyed the food and service; server was extremely helpful and friendly without... More

The property is a good entrance into Zion. However, Bryce is about an hour and ten minutes away. I would suggest finding a property closer the Bryce national park. The property is clean and staff very helpful

We are proud to be a long time family business, so yes we are not a brand new corporation, but we do have our benefits. Those who like to be away from the crowds and cities really love this place, but no we are not a brand new big hotel in a city - thank goodness. ;) Most people visiting... More

Great large rooms, very nice decor, new bathrooms, big TV, lots of hot water, delicious food at the restaurant, Ho-made delicious pies, A/C and heat are great, and fun nine hole golf course on the property (bring your clubs or rent), very friendly staff, you cant go wrong.

The hotel sits at a crossroads. The room décor and carpet was dated, but room nice and large. This is the first Best Western in the area that had enough outlets for electronic devices near the bed. The staff was kind and friendly.

The room was nice and large. It was quiet, pretty, rural location east of Zion NP. Dinner at their restaurant was good. Internet service was good. Beds were a little hard for me. The staff was kind enough to warn us about the nearby road construction which closed the road into Kanab for several hours in the morning.

Thanks for the review. Our beds are those lush ones with the cushy pillow tops, and then they have soft fluffy mattress covers over that, but I have never been in a hotel room with a mattress that is soft enough for me! I do like them pillow soft, but hotels have to have something in the middle to try... More

We wanted to see Zion and Bryce as well as beat the crowds. But we were on a budget and didn't want to camp this early in the season. Finding this little gem of a hotel was fantastic! It was about half the price as other places we were looking at staying. I honestly expected it to be a dive,... More

"Finding this little gem of a hotel was fantastic! It was about half the price as other places we were looking at staying." Thank you so much for this nice review. I had thought our low prices would be seen as a nice thing, rather than making people think we are a dive. Even so, I think we will retain... More

Had large room on ground floor (opens to outside, not a hallway). Floor was dirty. Attached restaurant seemed pricey to us but quality was good (lunch & dinner). Restaurant staff were friendly. We ate breakfast with food purchased from the gas station next door.

Very clean and spacious rooms and kind staff. Each room has a sliding glass door that looks out onto golf course, grass, mountains. We went to zion for the day, then drove here which was not far and beautiful view. The next day we woke up and golfed which was fun. I wish we had the kids to play on... More

Thank you so much for you nice review. I like the same things you mentioned. My kids like to roll down the hill that is between the 2 units where the pool is. At night there are often deer out there in the summer. More
