Great place and friendly staff. Room was clean, neat, comfortable and a little larger than most rooms. No road noise despite being closed to the front of the building. Our end of the building had many people staying but you did NOT hear anyone through the walls either; quiet. We had no complaints and we would recommend staying here. The... More

We were out camping in Escalante and our tent was blown down and broke. Drove into town late hoping for something open at a decent price. Prospector Inn was closed but had a vacancy sign with info on pricing. We rang the bell and were in a room within 5 min. Double queen bed, cable tv, clean room. Better than... More

This was a convenient place to stay while traveling scenic byway 12. The gentleman at the front desk was most helpful and friendly. This is a no frills hotel covering our basic needs - comfort, affordable, and good location. Dining nearby but know that you won't really find anywhere to eat in the area after 9 pm.

Lucky to find a place to stay, Escalante is not a very big town, about half way between Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon. Plain room but all we needed to sleep and get back on the road to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks. Most of the locals said they don't stay there in the winter because of the cold... More

So glad to find a clean, comfortable, affordable place to stay on the way to Bryce Canyon. Lady at the front desk was sweet and helpful. Good place to stay if hiking, camping or on your way to Southern Utah's awesome sites!

In any larger city I would just go three stars but for a small seasonal town like Escalante this hotel is a pretty decent value. Beds are comfortable (not to soft). We stayed in the little single room cabins last night. I'm so glad they didn't have a vacancy for our second night which made us try the Prospector.

...a decent, clean, mom and pop motel with good amenities and location for the price. We paid around $75 a night including taxes so it's dang near as cheap as camping but you get a bathroom and hot water. I like the drive to your door option at motels when you're road tripping and the wifi worked, the fridge and... More

It's a basic motel, nothing fancy but the staff was very friendly. They let us use hot water in the lobby to make oatmeal in the morning. The coffee was good and they gave sight seeing recommendations.

Stayed here 5 nights while hiking and 4 wheeling around Escalante. Good, clean basic rooms, not fancy. Microwave and minifridge in room, bring your own instant coffee. Owners very nice. Can walk to several restaurants. And was a great price!

On a rainy and cold day, we needed a warm place to stay. The check in was easy and friendly. Basic motel at a good rate. Staff seemed friendly and easy going. Could use an in room coffee maker and better coffee in the lobby.
