We took a room here when a change of plans brought us through Kanab at last minute. There was nothing else available in town so we took the room despite the high price. The room transported us back to about 1940, and the mattress probably actually was that old. Free breakfast was pathetic. Don't stay unless your only option is... More

I will say the same thing that I said on booking.com to you. I would think of it this way, if you would have planned ahead you might not of got the last room in town. The smart people had a nice room. As far as the breakfast goes, pathetic is a harsh word. The fact that most people say... More

We booked this hotel for 2 nights and yes it needs some work but its clean good size fridge the best bed we have had in 7 weeks in the USA . Anyone who lives in hot desert area knows that evaporative air is the best and a ceiling fan also is a bonus. The breakfast was better than most... More

Highly misrepresented. We arrived late or would have changed motels. First, the bathroom window was missing. Yes, literally, no window. There was a sunscreen mesh thing nailed to a frame shoved in the hole but could have been easily pried out. There was a mini blind but left us feeling vulnerable with no privacy. The bed area had a window... More

I'm sorry you feel this way. I will have to say that when you came in my office late that night and told me that you had a reservation with us, I told you that you did not (you never gave me a C/C number to hold the room) and that I still could accommodate you seeing that the town... More

For some reason motel prices in Kanab are expensive. This motel is certainly one of the less expensive in town but is still way more expensive than comparable motels that we have stayed at in small country towns in the South West. The motel is very dated. The rooms are small and so are the bathrooms. On the positive side,... More

First, very nice family owned hosts. This motel is very basic. If you want to experience true western laid back, no frills motel, come here. The style is perhaps from 70s. Evaporative coolers, no air conditioning. But they do have a ceiling fan which helps. Bathroom was nostalgically cute. Pink tiles on the wall. No fan, they have a window... More

My sister and I wanted to do some volunteer days at Best Friends. We picked Sun-n-Sand because it looks like an old Route 66 motel and we liked the reviews. Don and his wife own/run it and after talking with Don, I am sure that it is very clean. I wish that we could have stayed there--after changing our reservations... More

My family and I stayed at the SnS motel for one night. The staff was very nice, friendly and helpful. The room was nice and clean. The bathroom was also nice and clean. The breakfast was good, especially the homemade brownies.

Had a fun time with the manager, Don- really friendly and helpful guy. They served a yummy fresh breakfast with homemade muffins, cereal, toast, juice/coffee etc. Rooms were clean, and wifi was pretty fast. Restaurant right across the street and 2 gas stations a block away for anything you might need.

I normally try to do better than this but we are on a road trip going at it one day at a time. We needed a place to stay and this was about all we could find at any price. On the plus side, the owners are friendly and helpful. The room is clean and well, it pretty much ends... More

Thanks for the almost nice review. We are sorry that you couldn't find a "better" place to stay. Even though the town was not full that night. Sounds to me that you were needing the Ritz Carlton on a Mom and Pop Motel budget! There is nothing wrong with the wifi. Did you ever think it could have been your... More

We stayed here 5 years ago and there are improvements that have been made and still being made. Don and Cassi are very accommodating and helpful. Anything you need they will get it for you. It is nothing fancy but it is clean. The beds are on the firm side but it was quiet. There are muffins, cereal, oatmeal, coffee,... More
