Sun-n-Sand Motel
Ranked #13 of 15 Hotels in Kanab
Reviewed May 5, 2012

We had heard about Wayne and his motel from friends in the UK, and were not disappointed by the wacky and warm welcome we got on arrival and throughout our two night stay. Not the most modern of motels, but clean and tidy and in a good location for touring the area.Good breakfast - seemed to be whatever you wanted! - and a good fun time barbecue which Wayne enjoyed as much as we did. Good price for what you get. Try it!

Yes, Wayne is totally crazy, but in the nicest possible way! we love it here, we have stayed twice. The motel is old style, a little worn, but clean. The customer service here is great, nothing would be too much trouble if you just ask. Wayne likes to talk, and if you just want peace and quiet it may not be the place for you. Having said that, it is SO quiet during the night here, we slept really well. We bought meat on the second night and Wayne lit a bbq for us to enjoy. we stayed in room 21 which had a lovely big bed. Overall the place is great value for money, and meeting Wayne, his wife and two dogs really did make up part of our Utah road trip experience.

I wanted somewhere cheap to stay and that's exactly what it was. Cheap, dirty, and uncomfortable. The room was dirty and the motel had cockroaches. We were going to stay the night until we saw the room. We ended up checking out after only a few hours and when we left the guy in the office chased us when we went across the street to check out the other motel screaming at us. The guy was scary, and so was the appearance of the motel. Would never stay there even if it was the only place left.

I stayed here for months while working in the area. He is a man of his word, and he will do what it takes to make your stay pleasant. The hotel looks very old, and a place not as welcome as you would think, but once you stay and sit and talk with Wayne in the mourning while you eat your breakfast, or at night when he comes out to welcome you back for the night, you wil lfind he is a very pleasant host and a great guy.
You could do a lot worse than to stay here. For the price, you cannot beat this place.

You can't beat Sun-n-Sands for a great place to stay in Kanab. Managers Wayne and Terri can teach graduate courses in customer service. Breakfast in the morning consists of fresh donuts and fruit with coffee, juice, and several different varieties of bread for toast. You can take these back to your room, but it's much better to hang around the front desk and converse with Wayne as well as other guests from all over the world. When you come back to your room at the end of a long day of hiking, don't be surprised if Wayne comes out to meet you with bag of popcorn to toss into your in-room microwave. Wayne can also give you great advice on places to see, day hikes, and other tips to make your stay in Kanab more enjoyable.

The motel is definitely old, but the rooms are clean. If you require the polished brass and chrome of a corporate motel chain, this is not the place for you. If you want customer service that is second to none and a clean, comfortable room at a great rate, then Sun-n-Sands is the place to stay in Kanab.

On a recent trip across the Southwest, my husband and I vowed when not camping to stay at American owned hotels/motels that had a uniqueness about them and a big dose of Americana. Sun-n-Sands did not disappoint. I'll keep it short: if you want a clean room, a hot shower, tv, bed and wi-fi (wayne might even through in an 'Arizona longneck') then go no further. If your tastes run towards a spa type setting with all new upgrades...then head down the street. Wayne offers all we needed, and he allows dogs. As long as Gunner (Wayne's blue heeler approves). I miss the days of good customer service and hotels that do not cost $100. This place was like a stay at my Grandma's house....heck, he even had hot cocoa and theater style popcorn.......
