“simple but sufficient”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

We use a real diversity of lodging on the road, from upper echelon to low budget and tent camping. Our minimum standards require excellent cleanliness, good quick hot water, awareness of eco-issues (lighting & linens), night quiet, and fairly comfortable mattresses. This hotel falls in the budget category in quality, but the prices are a bit high for budget. The water was tepid; the elevator very slow; the bathroom door very squeaky; the decorations very somber. Otherwise it was well-appointed and supplied. There is a large breakfast area and a few nice options, but for non-vegans only (travel with your own milk substitute and muffins!)

We stayed at this lovely hotel while exploring the beautiful areas close by. Its an easy day trip to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, accessible to many attractions! The staff are very friendly, they directed us to some very cool local "secret" drives and hikes and we loved each discovery. This is one of the best hotels in the area, definitely a place I will be going back to.

Room Tip: We like being on the top floor because its quieter.

Major kudo's to the front desk for meeting our early check-in request. We really appreciated their extra efforts on our behalf. The facility itself is a bit older in the HIE genre which meant a few less outlets and a slightly smaller room then some of the newer ones. The non-suite rooms do not have fridges or microwaves but they can be "rented" for $10 each on a first come/first serve basis. Our room was clean, the beds were firm and comfortable, and the shower pressure was the best we've experienced on this 10 day road trip. The hotel is located within a block of several restaurants, an espresso store, ice cream shop and a supermarket -- great when it's 100 degrees out! Although Kanab is a small town, a lot of trucks rumble through on highway 89, so you might want earplugs for the night. Lastly, early morning coffee drinkers beware -- they do not offer coffee in the lobby until 6 AM. Luckily, McDonalds is a block away (better then in room coffee!)

Room Tip: For quiet, ask for a third floor room in the higher digits. The low 300's are nearest the street...

Overall a good place to stay for the money. Friendly staff, clean and orderly, and a convenient location. Only downside was the noise level from the hallway.

Room Tip: Stay at the end of the hall on the top floor....less noise.

The pool was out of order after driving through the heat of summer we could not even cool off, the remote was out of order, and the pancake machine at breakfast was out of order. The only thing good was the outdoor space, but it was too warm to sit out there.

gilberttraveler56, I am sorry to hear about your experience at our property. I hope you can believe me when I say that your experience is not the norm for our property. We take great pride in keeping our amenities at tip top shape for our weary travelers. We know how important the pool is to the relaxation of a good trip. Unfortunately we can't control kid accidents and those must be dealt with for your safety. As for our pancake machine, this has been a frustration for us as well. We were so excited to get a new breakfast item for guests like you but it just hasn't worked until just recently when the company finally figured out was was causing the issues. I guess our elevation was causing the pancake mix to over expand and over heat in the machine. This in turn was causing it to stick to the belts. The problem has been fixed and we are now serving fresh hot pancakes every morning. I hope that you will give us the opportunity to host you again, we sure do appreciate your business.

My family and I stayed in this hotel during a road trip. We liked this hotel and it was one of our favorites. The hotel is right in Kanab and there are restaurants nearby. The lobby and room were very modern and clean. The full hot breakfast was reasonably good. The weather in Kanab had the usual hot temperatures typical of summer and the air conditioner worked very well. The high speed Internet was fast and connected easily.

A typical Holiday Inn Express, with slightly western theme touches... the breakfast was good, the room was clean, the pool was indoors but adequately ventilated and very clean. When we stayed (late June 2012) the prices were pretty high for a standard hotel in the middle of nowhere - but I guess that being the best hotel option between Zion and the Grand Canyon allows for some pricing power...

My only complaints are 1.) the pool towels are ridiculously small and 2.) when I asked for a restaurant recommendation at the front desk, I was directed to a place where the hotel obviously had some sort of financial relationship - rather than being provided with a real recommendation.

If you really need a hotel in Kanab, this is probably your best bet.
