Circle D is an older motel as are most motels in that area of Utah, but it was a great location, clean, quiet and the owner was very friendly. We only stayed one night as we were traveling to Moab, but wanted to visit Devils Garden to photograph. We chose well in Circle D. The restaurant was closed the night were there and we got up very early the next morning and we missed breakfast as well, so I can't comment about it.
There is a wonderful gallery right next door that is absolutely worth visiting. The owner/photographer does beautiful work as well as the jewelery his wife does.
If you choose Circle D in Escalante, you've made a good choice.

My wife and I stayed at the Circle D Motel for one night. This is an older property that has been well maintained. The room was very clean and spacious and the bed was comfortable. The manager was very friendly and helpful. He took the time to explain everything we needed to know about the room and the area. He gave us directions for our drive the next morning and mentioned that the rooms had several books and brochures describing the local area and activities. It was an extremely friendly welcome. This is a quiet location and we slept well, undisturbed.

We stayed here en route from Moab to Springdale, enjoying the scenic drive through the Grand Staircase area. The motel is fairly traditional, very clean and comfortable, and as our room was set back some distance from the main road, very quiet. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and quick to sort out any little glitches (no bath towels in our room). There was no breakfast offering included in our room rate, but the Circle D Eatery next door was excellent for dinner and for breakfast. Decent value for money overall.

Clean, comfortable and quiet, with a nice welcome from the owner. Good facilities in the room. Onsite restaurant was fine and good enough not to have to worry about searching around for somewhere to eat at the end of a long day.

Going into a small town we were a little unsure how the hotels would be. We booked here and got the first room in the complex which had been newily renovated. It was really nice and had lots of room. I was plesently surprised.

Room Tip: Book early! not a lot of rooms in this town so if you want to stay in the area then book a room earl...

The Circle D was recommended by Escalante Excursions and we thought it was a good value, with microwave, fridge, king bed, AC and Heater. Nice view of sunset from porch outside our room. Good base for us from which to go canyoneering. But when we asked to get ice for our room and travel needs, we were told by the restaurant that they only gave out one rather small bag of ice cubes per room. when we asked management of the hotel about this, we were told limits were set because people staying in the motel filled their ice chests. Hmmmm. One bag per room, not even one bag per person. Judge for yourself.

Room Tip: No tip... rooms about the same. Higher number are farther from the road but not much traffic.

Very good price and location to explore Great Staircase
The rooms are clean and comfortable, it has a restaurant just next door
The wifi works very well and the shower is very good
Looks like it is always full... so try to book it to avoid headache of looking for another place
I think is the best option in Escalante

Room Tip: all rooms look the same
