“Best food in USA”
Reviewed September 17, 2007

We stayed here on a road trip from Los Angeles to Boston. The hotel is in a tiny town with not much else there except it's en route to Moab. The highlight of our stay, and one of the highlights of the whole trip, was the Hells Backbone Restaurant. Honestly, it is worth travelling to Utah for. Another reviewer thought the resturant was the hotel's downfall, he couldn't understand the expensive menu... I couldn't disagree more. It is a little expensive, but firstly, the waiters are extremely knowledgeable, and secondly the food is OUT OF THIS WORLD. I can't speak highly enough of this restaurant.

The room was large, clean, with a big patio.

Would I go back? IN A HEARTBEAT.

This summer, my best friend and I took a roadtrip from New Mexico through Utah, hitting all the major National Parks, and some other wonderful state parks (Utah has many incredible state parks, that definitely bear looking into). The highlight of our trip, in terms of lodging and food, was the night we spent at Boulder Mountain Lodge.
After a week in the hot, dry Utah red rock desert, ascending up Boulder Mountain and its ponderosa pine forests, was a welcome, cooling relief. The Lodge is designed to fit in with its surroundings, so it is rustic but elegant, with sublte and exquisite details. The grounds made us feel like we were at the country home of a rich friend with very good taste and no prentensions). Our room was luxuriously spacious, comfortably furnished, and generously provided with every amenity we could imagine. We also had a balcony directly overlooking a lake that serves as a bird sanctuary. It was all so nice the only problem was deciding whether to relax indoors or outdoors.
My friend and I are not accustomed to staying in expensive hotels, but we felt like we were in a 4 star resort, and at only $130 a night, we felt very lucky indeed.
On site is the Hell's Backbone Grill, which is one of the reasons we wanted to stay here. You know how when you've been looking forward to something for months and your expectations are so ridiculously high that they couldn't possibly be met? Well... not only did the restaurant not disappoint, our expectations seemed miniscule compared to the reality of our experience there. The total dining experience ( at both dinner and breakfast the next morning) were among the best we have ever experienced, in this country or abroad. Exquisite food (all of it local and organic, since the restaurant like the Lodge is Green with a capital G), lovingly prepared and presented not only with no attitude but with such warmth we didn't want to leave, even to go back to our beautiful room. I could go on and on for many pages about the specifics of our meals, from the ambience, the service, the food, ( all beyond outstanding), but suffice it to say the Boulder Mountain Lodge and Hell's Backbone Grill are the new standards by which every place we stay and eat will be judged.

On the way between Bryce Canyon NP to Moab NP (Arches NP & Canyonlands NP), a fantastic lodge with all amenities required for a nice stay. Large and clean rooms with TV (with DVD player and DVDs at the front desk for free), microwave & refrigerator.
No problem with reservation and check-in.
We made a large load of clothes washed for 7$ only, which were ready at the front desk less than 2 hours after.
Weather was quite bad and we really enjoyed the tub, which perfectly worked in a peaceful location.

The restaurant in the hotel is also very good. Home made kitchen, the finest we found in Utah.

Really a good deal, you won't regret your money !

P.S. Don't hesitate to make a bend to drive along Boulder Trail, up to Long Canyon.

Pleasant, spacious rooms. Nice grounds. A great restaurant on the property (separately owned), with a two more casual restaurants in walking distance.

We spent two nights at this property this July. It is quite unique in that it is an eco-system with a bird sanctuary, is pet friendly and very, very casual. The rooms are spacious, there are nice toiletries provided and it is in nice surroundings. However, we stayed in two separate rooms and our feeling was that housekeeping here was, well, rather unkempt. I immediately went to work sanitizing the first night's room. Black mold growing around tub, bathtub itself showed decent aging, the room (TV screen and TV, shelves, above microwave, etc.) were in severe need of a good dusting, mirrors were heavily smeared, entrance porch was dirty with dirt/leaves, etc. It just needed to have better daily maintenance in our opinion. I also sanitized the second night's room as well and there were still some dusty areas but not as bad as room #1.

Our first visit won't be our last. The lodge had everything we wanted - great rooms, a perfect location, and a wonderful staff. We particularly liked the view of the pond with all the wildlife in the morning. The restaurant was excellent. Make dinner reservations in advance if possible. We also enjoyed watching the stars from the hot tub. It was the perfect romantic getaway. The trip to get there, along Highway 12, was breathtaking! We could spend weeks exploring the area.

What a delightful place to stay. Our room was wonderful and the scenery in that part of Utah is fantastic. The restaurant was delicious! The staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. We were surprised to find the weather cooler than any of the national parks we had recently visited. The Burr Trail was tremendous and we really liked Grand Staircase Escalante. The best trails (this time of year) were in the high mountains - with lakes, lots of beautiful trees and no crowds.

  • Liked — Great rooms and restaurant
