We think this is probably an interesting place to stay. It certainly looked fascinating. Sadly, the management is a bit strange and we didn't get to stay as we had hoped for two nights. We had picked it specifically for its proximity to the Canyonlands Needles District - closest lodging by far.
Arriving at 11 p.m. as planned, we were greeted by a note that we would have to find another room. Hmm, strange customer service. Never encountered that one before.
Knowing in advance we would be arriving late, we talked to the manager who gave us explicit on finding our room and just asked us to be quiet and not disturb the other guests. There was no effort whatsoever to assist us with our rooms there, despite the advance arrangements.
The good news is that the manager did ultimately agree to get us a room in Monticello and we were introduced (again) to the Grist Mill Inn which was fantastic.
I suspect this place is interesting and fun, and we heard great reviews of the steakhouse. But definitely go there with an open mind and pay close attention to the rules. This is not a typical hotel, which might be a big plus. Sadly, we didn't get to experience it and we will definitely not go back.
