This motel was very nice, well kept, friendly staff/owner and consistently being updated. Bed was comfy, room nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. And, I was able to work on the WiFi while there. We also needed to cancel our last night while there and owner was very nice and refunded us. We would definitely stay at Circle D again next time we come through Escalante!

Hotel's Favorite
This place is special. The rooms are nice, the location perfect (between a nice restaurant and a fun but laid back bar). But the people were awesome. Bailey and the crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful, going above and beyond, and giving a motel the vibe of a high end BnB or hotel. Highly recommendeds

First impressions were suspect. You register they entrance in front. Area around hotel not maintained. However, the room ended up being very nice. It angles away from highway. Quiet, even though we were in room near front. Beds were comfortable. Room was clean.

I had a wonderful experience at the Circle D Motel. The accommodations are modest but clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and accommodating! Cody immediately made me feel welcomed. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe and welcomed at this motel. The staff even helped me to set up a fire one evening and it was a wonderful way to relax with other travelers in the evening. The front office and rooms have tons of information about things to do in the area. While I did not have a chance to dine at the restaurant next door, it is very convenient to have a place so close.

Really enjoyed our stay at Circle D! Cody at the front desk was wonderful! Super friendly and accommodating, let us check in a little early when the room was ready. Conveniently located. Clean rooms and beds. Walls were a little thin (could hear neighbor snoring all night), but otherwise great motel!

This is a small, older hotel. It isn't luxurious, but the front office and rooms are chock-full of outstanding resources for exploring the area. The owner/manager/person at the front office had answers to all my questions and multiple books on any topic I was interested in. The restaurant next door was also outstanding--the nachos were amazing.

I've stayed at the Circle D many times over the past 12 years. I used to be clean and very nice, with a very attentive owner. We booked for 3 nights recently, and the bed and pillows were dirty, the bathroom floor was dirty, someone's old soap was left in the shower, and there was trash and dog poop in the turf in front of all the rooms. We left after 2 nights and stayed elsewhere.

It was clean and quiet. Rooms were comfortable. Bathroom was on the small side. The price was okay for a tourist location. My one suggestion to the owners, if you read this, is to do some work on the landscaping and parking lot. I've stayed here several times over the years and it's time for a facelift of the grounds. They are starting to look a little ratty.

We only stayed one night, but I can imagine staying a few days, making Escalante a base to explore everything the area has to offer. There is so much to see and do---waterfalls, lakes, slot canyons --- with the right 4 wheel or AWD car! Circle D has clean rooms, great A/C, kitchenette and we had a remodeled bath. Hiking books are in the rooms, and the office is full of guide books to the best adventures of Grand Escalante and nearby parks. Owner Robert is full of information on the area, he recommended two excursions/hikes that we loved!! Adjacent to motel is their restaurant which had great food, a bar and you can sit outdoors. Very relaxing! We will definitely stop back when visiting Utah again.
