“GSENM No April Fool”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The hotel is plain and simple as one might expect from the price. The room was neat and clean, and the bed was comfortable. Their is no elevator for rooms on the second or third floor. The location is about 13 miles from the entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park and the hotel is less expensive than those hotels close to the park. However, there was a problem with the water heater. There was not enough hot water to take a cold shower which was a real downer after hiking Angel's landing at Zion N.P. about 70 miles away. The owners were very apologetic and made a partial credit on our bill. The continental breakfast included in the room price was toast, coffee and hot chocolate. Kodachrome State Park is located 8 miles south of the hotel. It is colorful, but anticlimatic after visiting Bryce. The ride along Utah 12 is impressive around Escalante Canyon between Escalante and Boulder. Petrified Forest State Park off Hwy 12 is in an attractive setting by a lake. It has a good interpretive trail that may be difficult for some people. The park may be a disappointment if you have seen Petrified National Forest in Arizona.

Super affordable really clean room . This place is a ghost town , but this hotel is located perfectly between Bryce , Kodachrome and one of the entrances for Grand Escalante and easy access to 12 and 14 both beautifully scenic roads to drive . The only two restaurants are in Tropic 5 miles or Ruby about 10 miles . Gas station and grocery store are part of the hotel . If you like super quiet youll love this place!

The hotel is nice, and clean rooms, very comfortable beds. There are 2 microwaves in each floor. A small breakfast is included ( hot chocolate, coffee, toast with butter and jam). There is a gas station just outside the hotel and a small market downstairs. The owners are really nice. The town has nothing to offer, to dine you have to go some miles away to tropic or at the entrance of Bryce Canyon park that is 10 minutes far by car. The hotel is perfect if you want to visit the park but you don't want to spend a lot. Highly recommended!

This motel is nothing special but the main advantage is that it is cheap for the area! We stayed there because we booked late and could not find anything else close to Bryce Canyon.
The rooms are large and quite comfortable, but do not expect anything fancy! The town is really small, there is nothing to do there. For the rest, the hotel is quiet and clean...

We stayed here after travelling from the Bryce Canyon park. Cannonville is a very small town with not much infrastructure, but this three level hotel itself is more than adequate. It has a small grocery store and gas station (poorly lit at night) .

Very large rooms with TV, hair dryer, fridge and free internet. There is also a shared microwave in the hallway on each floor and a basket full of rags to use for cleaning, which most hotels in the region seemed to offer guests.

The free small breakfast consisted only of toast, jelly, coffee, tea, hot chocolate.

We traveled a few miles back to Tropic for dinner (Clarkes' restaurant-see separate review).

A very good, cheap option as to staying at the entrance or in Bryce Canyon park.

Room Tip: Request a room on the main floor if you have mobility concerns as there are no elevators.

Cannonville is a very small town so you will not find 3 or 4 star hotels here. However, this family run establishment (a grocery store, restaurant and gas station are also included) is clean and ocnvenient. Our room was very large.

We used it for a day trip to Grosvenor Arch and Kodachrome State Park - these are both worth visiting. It could also be used for Bryce Canyon National Park. We wouldn't hestitate to stay here again.

Trip Advisor previous reports look good'ish but we were dissapointed at the price for mediocre accommodation. Yes the rooms are large and they have two large beds but every time somebody shuts the main door to the corridor the whole place shakes. The only food served is at breakfast where you can get toast and coffee. The breakfast room??? is inside a store selling everything whilst the till also covers people buying gas and and not a pleasant place to eat. This could be improved. We did understand they had been very busy and if this is the case then they should re invest in the place, In our view look elsewhere and pay a little more.

Room Tip: Dont stay on the ground floor
