We stopped here for one night after exploring Zion National Park, on our way to Bryce Canyon National Park. Great room. Rustic furnishings. The room looked like it had been recently redecorated. The stall shower was amazing, with subway tile, and rain shower shower head. The s

Stayed here for one night whilst road tripping through Nevada/Arizona/Utah and was perfectly happy with our stay. The rooms are giant, clean and well presented. It's a motel style with a ground floor and first floor with the doors opening on straight to the parking lot. Breakf

This was the best hotel that we had on our trip. The room was decorated very nice, with neat furniture, a vaulted ceiling, a view of the 9 hole golf course. It was almost like a suite. We loved all the staff at the hotel and restaurant. They made us feel at home. I thought th

Our room was quiet and decorated with beautiful, rustic wood furniture. There was a gorgeous Mountain View outside the patio door. The shower was one of the best I’ve experienced in a motel. Highly recommend this motel.

I have stayed at this location before and it was great! Since my last visit, they are upgrading the rooms and it is even better. It feels like a slice of an old western town with all the amenities of a full service hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable and I think all of th

how close to zion national park and the north rim of the grand canyon?
About 45 minutes and your choices are either here or right at the park entrance and the cost difference is a lot more economical here besides the drive is real pretty anyway

Do you accept debit cards as forms of payment? If so, is there an incidental hold?
There is an incidental hold and if you come from a region with a different currency the change in exchange rate from the the time of the hold and the actual withdrawal causes a mismatch of amounts which can lead to an extended hold.

Do you have roll away beds as I have two teenage sons traveling with me.
Honestly I didn't ask this question but you could call them. They were so accomodating that I'll bet they do have the roll aways.

Where do we go to eat?
Places to eat out Mt. Carmel Junction • Thunderbird Restaurant $$ 435-648-2262 • Golden Hills - family diner $$ 435-648-2602 • Subway - chain fast food $ Orderville - 5 miles • Soup Town - locals mostly $ 435-648-2370 • Backeri Forscher German Bakery & Restaurant $$ 435-648-3040 Glendale - 2 miles past Orderville • Wild Boar Bistro (Beer & Wine on tap) - experience the wild west $$ 435-648-2778 SR-9 toward Zion - 9 miles • Buffalo Grill - upscale $$$ 866-648-2555 Kanab - 17 miles This is a typical small city (4,000 or less population) with chain restaurants as well as those that are not. A good Mexican place is Escabars, with great family prices. Rocking V is a favorite of many, but it's expensive to what they offer. Grocery Stores There are 2 grocery stores in Kanab, but 5 miles from the house in Orderville is Terry's market, which has a good selection for a small town grocery store. On the other side of the park in La Verkin is the closest large grocery store.

"First floor rooms have parking direct outside - but many second floor have their own verandas with chairs."
"Take a ground floor room facing the pool"
"I like views of the golf course."
"Rooms by the golf-course are wonderful"
"I think most all the roomsare the same if you have kids you may want one close to the pool so they can go out the sliding door to get there."
