What a great place! Myself and my parents stayed in two rooms for 3 nights.The owner is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are huge, but the downside is that they all only have 2 double beds. Very clean and comfortable. Each room has a microwave and small fridge, and an actual table with overhead light (which came in handy when we were kept indoors due to a rain/snow/thunderstorm and played cards). You can't hear any noise from the other rooms. The heater worked great and the shower had plenty of hot water. I would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed here 4 times in the past 6 years and found quiet, clean rooms. In the morning you can get hot tea or coffee or some ice from the machine on hot days. The staff - Mrs. Verda - is a very friendly and helpful lady and the Price is moderate. Some of the best Slot Canyons - Brimstone, Peek-a-Boo, Zebra Slot or beautiful Arches like Sunset or Broken Arch are in near distance.

Room Tip: Take second floor if you don't like big cars in front of your room

The inn is what we look for when traveling. The rooms are spacious and clean. I must comment on the service and friendliness of staff. We were in Escalante during the national park shutdown. The town was virtually sold out without the shutdown, and rooms were completely sold out after adjacent parks closed. We had reservations at Zion-did not know what to do. In spite of circumstances, the inn gave us an option to keep our room an extra night -as we watched Washington act like spoiled children. We ended up staying that extra night-grateful for the opportunity. We felt like refugees in our own country-what would we have done without their help.

We stayed here two nights. The room was comfortable. The motel is not fancy, but it was clean and quiet, and that's really all we needed. The location is convenient to several eateries, the post office, a gas station/mini mart, and most of the town. They have a gift shop with lots of interesting items.

There weren't a lot of choices in Escalante and we didn't have advance reservations. The Prospector Inn office was open when arrived and still had rooms available. We stayed for one night. It was just OK. There was no complimentary breakfast, which was OK. The beds were a little worn. We were on the second floor and we could hear/feel the vibrations when anyone walked by or came up the stairs. Room was clean but the blow dryer kept going on when I used it for more than 30 secs at a time. We actually thought it was a little pricey for what it was, but it was OK for one night.

Scott and Cathy know the true meaning hospitality! During the parks closing and opening we needed to change our reservations and plans. We were traveling from Healdsburg CA. We had to cancel our reservations with them and received a full refund! We will definitely be back to visit. Thank you for being so accommodating!
