Closeness to Bryce Canyon is the only compliment this place deserves. It was a hassle to check in due to several unprofessional mistakes on the owner's part, took us 30+ minutes to get into the room, which is too long after an exhausting day. The room was not well maintained or clean. Wifi was unusable, no hope to read the... More

My brother and his family. My daugher and I had driven to Panguitch,Utah for my fathers funeral. My daughter had arrived early and had gotten a small room to share. When my brother was almost to Panguitch, Stacy the office manager and whom is also helping with renovations that are being done, put us into the house that they rent... More

The room was dusty, the shower had globs of caulk stuck to the wall, the tv was ancient. I couldn't wait to leave. This was the worst place I've stayed in a long time. The owners seem to take no pride in the premises.

You get what you pay for, and you don't pay for much here. Uncomfortable beds, skimpy pillows, loud heater, nobody around when you want to check in or out. The owner got black paint asphalt topper on my car and didn't even apologize. I just... This was the worst night of my trip.

Everything is so old and dirty. Our kitchen stove caught a fire from remnants of food and oil when we try to boil some water. Smoke detector didn't work so we could easily burn this whole place down if I didn't smell it burning. The owner did not show much emotions when I told him about it. Stay away from... More

We booked a one-night stay in this motel based on Trip Advisor reviews. While the staff was helpful and friendly, the room was disgusting. It was not clean. Carpet was worn. Blinds sagged and were dusty. The bathroom floor was dirty, with lots of build up in the corners. The heater was old, and the pilot light needed to be... More

It was fairly late when we drove through Panguitch. Nothing was open. Having driven since Colorado on our way to Zion, we had to pull over somewhere and sleep...unfortunately this was the only place open. I'll just get to it...Paint in the room and bathroom was peeling and in the corners, some fungus; nothing bad but noticeable. The bathroom shower... More

We arrived and immediately got told we were at the wrong hotel. I pulled out my confirmation proving that we were not. The gentleman went in the backroom and, after much cursing, yelling, and "get them out of my hotel" we were told they were full and couldn't let us stay there. We felt genuinely concerned and left even though... More

We booked this because when we searched online for a place to stay near Bryce National Park, it was literally the only place that came up with a three night in a row vacancy -- and because it showed an OK Trip Advisor rating, and a good rating on booking.com - those ratings may be relative to the other places...

First, let me qualify this review. For this trip, I needed a CLEAN, SAFE room, with HEAT for 4 women. I booked this hotel for one night, based on reviews here & on a booking site. The reviews and the photos looked like what I was looking for. Unfortunately, this is not what we found when we arrived. The hotel... More
