“Always Welcomed”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

I have statyed at the Prospector Inn a number of times and always feel welcomed. The rooms are large, very clean and comfortable. All for a price you seldom find today. The lady who runs the place is a delight and always seems to have time for a chat with her return customers. She is very much hands on and sees that the Inn is run to her high standards. There is never any doubt where I will stay when in Escalante.

Driving into town late and with few options available, I stopped at the Prospector and was graciously greeted by a man that had very recently been employed there. He rearranged the room I was to have so I could have the refrigerator since I had a cooler and it had been soooo hot. The room was large, clean and a nice breeze came thru. I would definitely stop there again.

The staff was very friendly, and gave us a lot of information about the area. The room was very clean. An extra touch that I really appreciated was a cleaning rag (an old tattered washcloth) for my motorcycle.

We stayed at the Prospector for several days in May. The motel is a fairly modern cement block structure surrounded by parking lots. The rooms are large, and clean, but the furniture is in need of an update. The check in was efficient, the woman at the desk was very accommodating. The rooms seemed overpriced for the area and the motel out of place in this wonderful setting.

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs room if the motel is busy.

I have stayed at the Prospector twice. The rooms (including the bathroom) are clean, spacious, and quiet. There are attractive photos of the local area on the walls, and the TV picture was crisp. The older woman who checked us in on my most recent visit was particularly friendly.

We stayed one night during our trip through beautiful Utah. Of the 6 or 7 motels we stayed in, it was the least clean and the least comfortable. The bed was ok but the sponge pillows - ugh! No breakfast included, although a restaurant was within walking distance. Motel staff attentive.

The room was very clean and spacious. The workers at the front desk were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They advised us on good restaurants in Escalante (Escalante Outfitters), as well as excellent hikes in Grand Staircase (Petrified Forest and Calf's Creek trails). The restaurant in the back was great, as well as our waitress. Everyone in town was super nice. Highly recommend if you're in Escalante/Grand Staircase area!
