Near Lee's Ferry in Marble Canyon and on the south side of the Vermillion Cliffs, this hotel offers clean sheets, clean bathrooms, and hospitable hosts. The store/lobby/reception, built apart form the rooms, is stocked with beer, soft drinks, etc. However, what is noteworthy is the complete stock of fishing gear, clothing, and other adventure travel odds and ends. Brands include ex-officio and Columbia, as well as others. The restaurant is better than average - the 1/3 pound hamburgers are outstanding. Be prepared to pay for the food, though, as this is nearly the only restaurant in miles. Have a couple of drinks and with any entree, fork down about forty bucks. Spent nearly my daily food budget on one meal here. All-in-all, I would return here on another trip. Oh, you can purchase gas here, also. T.J. our fly fishing guide employed by Lee's Ferry Anglers is great! He works here, too. Ask for him. He has enough patience to teach fly fishing to two novices. We caught fish in spite of our lack of skill! Good job, T.J.! Check out the dog named Boo (not the one in the Lobo song). He's a beauty!
