Reviewed June 16, 2013

This was a very well priced motel run by a charming couple. We had a few problems with the WiFi and lighting but these were quickly resolved.
The owners were friendly and helpful.
The room was spacious with a fridge and microwave. A weird thing, that made us laugh, was the air conditioning which was in the separate bit that also had a basin and coffee making facilities.
The room was not fancy or modern but it was large and clean
We loved the swimming pool and hot tub, pretty much outside our room. This was really appreciated as it was a hot day and we had done a long hike.
The only problem was that we arrived on Sunday and no local restaurants or shops were open.
We drove for 10 minutes to a lovely cafe in Loa and enjoyed a hearty meal.

This was the best cheap motel we stayed at during our Utah trip. The room we had was detached from the office building, and was very big and clean. There's also a pool, and a laundry facility in the parking lot, which was great after all of our hiking. Friendly owners!

This motel is a blast from the past. Room is huge and comfortable, but basic. A motel in the true sense of the word, it's not luxurious, but it's exactly what you need after a long day on the road. Pet friendly and clean. Lots of water pressure, but the shower didn't get hot enough for my taste.

Its nothing fancy but definitly good for its use. A little out of Bryce canyon entrance, you in the middle of nowhere and try to get there before 7 pm as the only food place two blocks away is open till 8. Good point for the motel, they sell beers!!! Shower great, but bathroom a little cold. Heater is a little noisy but like many other hotels we have been in as they sont use it that long in the dead season!!! Expect it! Good quality for price. Cute couple who own it

I felt like I entered a time warp into 1985 when we pulled up. It's a little dated, but very clean. Our room was quite spacious and had all of the amenities we needed - mini fridge, microwave, free wi-fi. We were quite comfortable the two nights we stayed there and I would stay there again. Excellent value!

Stayed here in room #6 (single queen bed). The hotel is dated, but everything is clean, well maintained, and inexpensive. The room itself was pretty big, had a fridge (which was already turned on when I got there, which I like since if I get there and it's off, it can take a day to cool down), microwave, tv, and high speed wireless internet. I had good wireless internet signal in the room too. Bed was comfortable as well.

My only "complaint" was that I found if I left the door open I got quite a few flies in the room. As long as I kept the door shut, no issues. It a bit of a bummer since the weather was so nice.

I'll definitely be back. I was able to stay for 3 nights here for the same price as 2 nights in Torrey.

If you stay here, I recommend trying the Sunglow Cafe down the street. It was delicious!

We read the reviews on line and proceeded with our reservation. We reserved the queen room #208 with a kitchenette. Upon arrival and check-in, they charged our credit card the entire amount for the three day stay. Our confirmation stated that we could not cancel or check out early after the 24 hour window expired. Our room was located above the office and video store. We opened the door to go up the flight of stairs to the room and that's when the smell first hit us. It took your breath away. It was dirty and old. The flashing florescent overhead light only added to the experience. We opened the door to the room only to find that it smelled far worse than the stairwell. The room was grimy and shabby. The bedspread was old and faded, the sheets were threadbare, the pillows were about 1/4 inch thick foam that didn't even have pillow cases but threadbare zippered pillow covers, the curtains were partially hanging off the rod and didn't close all the way. The bathroom linoleum was warped and curled up around the bathtub. The bathroom sink was tiny and was so low to the floor that you had to completely bend down at the waist to brush your teeth. The chairs at the "dining table" were disgusting--stained and filthy dirty. We didn't dare use anything in the kitchen. The hotel policy stated that once you were within the 24 hour cancellation period, you could not cancel or check out early without paying the full price (and they had already charged us the full price at check-in). We went to a nearby market and bought air freshener which we sprayed in the room and the hallway. We didn't sleep well at night worrying about what we were sleeping in. Again, the smell of old, dusty, musty was so strong and overpowering. There is a separate motel in the back of the property and perhaps those are the rooms that others are referring to in the other reviews, but this place needs a complete makeeover. I find it hard to believe that AAA would give this place an endorsement. We left after the second night and got a room at the Best Western in Torrey which was very nice and clean! My advice, stay away--especially from room #208.
