“good family hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Room was good and we used the pool and hot tub--always nice after a day of hiking. Amenities and breakfast were pretty standard fare, but price was reasonable. Unfriendly staff at front desk when we arrived...

Room Tip: If the road traffic bothers you, ask for a room on the back side of the hotel. We were on the first...

The front desk check in was friendly, the room was clean, and the view was pretty good, too. The room was a basic two queen and the breakfast offered the standard fare, but was adequate. This is a very good place to stay when visiting Capitol Reef.

Good basics: clean room; ok breakfast; very helpful and friendly staff; ok room amenities...(just missing some lighting) but again, a great location for exploring the nearby Capitol Reef National Park.

While we would have preferred Austin's Chuckwagon Inn, it was fully booked. So we stayed at Red Sands. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. I would stay here again. My only complaint was the air conditioner was way too noisy. I kept waking when the air compressor kicked on. Overall, a good stay. Excellent location for the park.

Nice hotel. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Breakfast was nicely done. The only negative was the too-soft mattress. Assuming this room was typical, they really need to be replaced. Overall, I'd stay again and I recommend the hotel.

My wife and I stayed one night at the Red Sands Hotel on our Way to Capitol Reef National Park. We did not have high expectations for the hotel but were still disappointed in a few things. We have been amazed at how friendly people were in Utah, especially at the front desk of other hotels. The staff at Red Sands was not rude but were certainly not especially friendly. First impressions are important.

We noticed there was no security on the side exit doors so anyone could just come into the building any time day or night. They have spent a good deal of money making the lobby look upscale and have flute music playing in the background. They could have put their money to better use in other areas.

The layout is a bit confusing. We had some trouble finding the correct door to enter to go to our room. There is also no elevator. I felt sorry for the cleaning staff having to drag everything they needed up and down the stairs.

The breakfast area and ice machine etc. were on either side of a hallway that was the main thoroughfare to get to the rooms. The food was pretty thin with hard boiled eggs being the only protein available. A few yogurts would be helpful.

It was not a bad place but could be a bit better. It was a convenient location but nothing memorable.

Room Tip: Ask for the first floor especially if you have a lot of luggage.

RedSandsHotel, Guest Relations Manager at Red Sands Hotel, responded to this review, September 17, 2012
Thank you for the review. We will continue to provide customer service training to our new staff members which will hopefully reflect in future guest experiences. We apologize our staff did not treat you as expected and will work hard to ensure we all try harder to please our guests during their stay with us. There are a couple of things we would like to correct with all due respect to you; we do have a secure entry at both the West entrance door and the main North entrance doors. You must have a key card programmed by our staff in order to enter the building from the West at any time during the day or night and you must have a key card to enter the front of the building at night. We have 24/7 surveillance and motion detection throughout the building. We provide a great deal of exterior lighting around the entire building and the parking lot for added security. Our staff does not have to haul equipment up and down the stairs as there is a secure maid’s closet on the second floor as well as on the first floor; although our cleaning staff does appreciate that you have considered their demanding work load. Last our interior corridors are laid out fairly simply with a hall down the middle of each floor and stairs at either end. The room numbers are also fairly standard with all "100" numbers on the first floor and all "200" numbers on the second floor. Please do not hesitate to ask the staff for directions if you are confused about how to get to your room, we are always available to help. Again, thank you for your stay with us and we hope to take your suggestions and improve upon our service.

I thoroughly enjoyed my overall stay here. The rooms were very clean and the bed were extremely comfortable. I haven't slept that well in a long time. The staff was excellent. They were all very kind and all my needs were met. And they had a good breakfast too. All around a great place to stay for all types of travelers. I look forward to staying here again!
