The motel rooms are simple and spare, but comfortable. No TV or phone, and the sink is outside the tiny bathroom, but the bed was comfortable and the area was quiet when I visited in early September. The restaurant nearby was staffed when I was there by friendly students on their summer break, and conversation with them was pleasant. The food was hit-or-miss: a meal in the dining room was disappointing, but sandwiches and breakfast at the counter were terrific. The on-site convenience store is handy, although if you want fresh produce, you'd better stop at Kanab on your way to Jacob Lake. The gift shop has lovely jewelry and other work from local artisans.
