“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I chose this hotel for my trip to volunteer at Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab. It's only about 10-15 minutes from the sanctuary and right in the middle of town. Room was very clean, bed was insanely comfortable, great wifi, and a friendly staff!

We were visiting best friends (awesome), and spent three nights at the holiday inn express. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful. However, I was only able to get a good night's sleep one night because the other two, there was noise from the room above and/or noise in the hallway. The rooms are not sufficiently sound proofed. If you do stay here, get a room on the third /top floor so you will not experience noise from above. The suite rooms have a fridge and microwave while the regular rooms do not.
The location is good with a grocery store and restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: Top floor to avoid noise from the room above. Book a suite if you want a fridge and microwave.

We were just passing through on our way to the Grand Canyon and chose to stay here for the night because they allowed pets and we had our dog with us. Boy, were we pleasantly surprised at the large, clean room, fun cowboy/Indian theme, great breakfast, free wi-fi, etc. The beds were comfy and kids, dog, and parents all slept well.

My only suggestion to the hotel is to get rid of the thin, scratchy towels.

Traveling from Phoenix to Idaho Falls, we made for Kanab and got there by 8:30 at night. As we pulled into town I saw the Holiday Express Suites sign and we pulled in, bought a room for the night, and were quite pleased with the décor and quality appointments. The rate was somewhat high, but we were glad to pay it! Soft and firm pillows are marked with stitching. Bathrooms are well appointed. Climate control is accurate. The décor is really nice, western/cowboy themed, beautiful wall coverings... We slept great (well, we were pretty whipped from the drive), the morning offered a nice shower with a cup of room coffee, then a very varied offering of breakfast - they had pretty much everything you could ask for, and whole fresh fruit, which is great to take one along when getting back on the road.
The other thing was that - compared to the previous hotel we stayed with - the night was quiet! Well worth the money!

Room Tip: The difference between a 2 queen bedroom and the suite with the king-sized bed is $20. Just sayin...

Family room was spacious (2 queen bed, 1 sofa bed), front desk staff attentive and helpful, my kids enjoyed the breakfast. My kids enjoyed the indoor pool, however the chlorine level was very high in the spa. Hopefully the hotel management can lower the chlorine usage tiny bit. The hotel is within walking distance to Escobar (good Mexican food) and Al's Junction (good burger, milkshakes). Close to Bryce Canyon, Zion and Cedar Break National Park.

Overall a good value proposition.

Perfectly located between Grand Canyon and Zion National Park. The receptionist was very helpful. I asked where we could go see a sunset, and recommended Pink Coral State Park, about 20 minutes away. Then we ask a recommendation for a nice mexican restaurant. Escabar was within walking distance and excellent, but no margarita! The hotel has a western flair, cowboy style. Very clean, smell good, nice big interior swimming pool.
Kanab is very cute town!

I stayed a total of 4 night at this hotel. It was very clean and everyone was very nice. Close to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. I would and will go back. Nice little town where I found people friendly. Good breakfast selection.
