This motel is clean, comfortable and affordable. It's within walking distance of the grocery stores and restaurants in Escalante and we really enjoyed our four-night stay here. The rooms have been re-modeled and we made good use of the kitchenette. Everything worked, the staff were very friendly, and the view from the motel is very nice. We asked about places... More

This motel was a good surprise. Our room was very clean, and still smelled of bleach. The floor is hardwood, not carpet. I guess it's because of the pets allowed; it's also easier to clean. Overall, this motel is an excellent option in Escalante, and don't miss the attached restaurant (Circle D eatery), which is very good.

Motel looks older when you pull in but the rooms have been modernized. Bed is comfortable, bathroom clean and room clean. Room has a microwave and fridge and flatscreen TV. Bathroom is small but absolutely adequate. Very good restaurant next-door. I would absolutely stay here again.

Basic motel, clean and comfortable. Overnight stay for us, Owner/operator was friendly and informative about the area. Really enjoyed dining at the adjoining restaurant. Checked out a local rock shop. They have a nearby Petrified Rock state park but chose not to visit on this trip.

We recently enjoyed our 2nd stay at the Circle D and it was even better than our first stay last year. This little motel is a perfect crash pad for enjoying some of Southern Utah ' s spectacular and secluded canyon areas.

The property is clean, well kept, and clearly being improved upon. We strayed in room 22 which has two queen beds a walk in shower, fridge, micro, coffee... More

Small but clean rooms, comfy bed, strong wifi, full satellite TV, excellent views from the front porch, cafe next door, easy walk to other cafes, stores, etc. This is a motel, not a 5 star resort, but the price is fair, the rooms adequate and the manager helpful and friendly.
