My father, father-in-law, three dogs, bird, rabbit, and I rented two rooms at this motel. We were en route moving from Utah to Louisiana (thus the hillbilly amalgamation). I've been eyeballing this place for several years as I drove by it on the way to Escalante or Grand Canyon NP. How can you miss all those cool cowboy silhouettes lining the sides of this hillside establishment? The best thing about this place is the LOCATION. Second best is the price. Page is expensive and crowded but oh yes, in a very beautiful backdrop indeed. If you're searching for the crowds and access to Lake Powell, stay in Page and pay a bit more. If you're searching for a little desert solitude, playing at Escalante, recreating at Lake Powell (only ~15 min from motel) and like P&Q, enjoy playing horseshoes, enjoy cowboy-themes, want to save a few extra bucks, STAY HERE. The rooms are quite nice and so is the lady who takes care of this place. All in all, we were very pleased. And don't miss nearby Escalante/Paria River play - it is the EPIC Utah experience on the road less traveled.
