“Exceptional Holiday Inn Express”
Reviewed 10 March 2009

We stay frequently at Holiday Inn Express and haven't been disappointed yet. But the Holiday Inn Express in Kanab is exceptional. It's new and beautifully appointed. Our standard double room was roomy and comfortable. A thermostat provides for much better heating/cooling than the standard hotel wall unit. The bathroom was beautiful. Our only quibble is that the lighting in the room wasn't very bright. You had to strain your eyes to read. The receptionist was especially friendly and helpful. And the price ($71) was right!

Stayed March 2009, travelled as a couple

We walked up and got a rate of $84. Not cheap for a Holiday Inn, but we heard this one was really nice. We were not disappointed.

The desk staff was prompt and very helpful. There were fresh hot cookies on the counter. The newly renovated rooms were beautiful -- more like a Marriott decor than a Holiday Inn. The beds were very comfortable, there was no strange smell (in fact, it smelled like cinnamon potpourri), and the guest room was quiet. The pool and hot tub temperatures were great. The lobby and great rooms (where breakfast was served) were spacious, and we were allowed to watch tv, play cards or eat our own brought-in dinner at their tables. My kids loved the flat screen tv in the room, which to them says, "fancy".

The outside is deceptive. It looks like any Holiday Inn Express, but the inside is beautiful. The only thing I would suggest is a little more ice melter in the parking lot in the winter... just in case.

We reserved this hotel last minute and off the HI website and were pleasantly surprised for find a relatively new and non-smoking hotel. We booked a queen mini-suite with micro-fridge and microwave which provided us with all the amenities we needed while hiking in the area.
The room was meticulously clean and very comfortable. We had no trouble getting a wireless internet connection and the breakfast (included) featured a good selection of relatively healthy and not so healthy items.
The hotel is located in downtown Kanab within a few minutes walk of the local pizza joint, Nedra's cafe and a grocery store. It's a great place to stay while exploring the area.

Nice property. Needed to have a washer/dryer as we had been traveling for days and they had them on our floor. They suggested a good restaurant and were very nice. Clean, neat and large room. Good hot breakfast.

We stayed here in November and the rooms were gorgeous! What a surprise because we hadn't had time to check Trip Advisor to see where the best place to stay was.

It all seems very new (or totally refurbed), including the public rooms which were very clean and smelled of vanilla! We paid $79 for a room that had two double beds (there were only two of us). The breakfast was a great surprise as it was included in the price and the choice was good - warm cinammon pastries, bacon, egg, yogurt, cereal, toast your own bread and bagels, individual milk cartons in the chiller and as much coffee or tea as you liked. There was only one member of staff replenishing the stocks but she did a very good job as nothing ran out. In the Reception area there were help yourself (free) cookies when we checked in and tea/coffee/hot chocolate is always available.

Even though Kanab is a quiet place the hotel was really much busier than we'd expected on the Saturday but they still managed to fit us without prior booking.

There are no places in Kanab where you can get just a beer without ordering food. For this you have to travel over the State line into Arizona to get to the nearest bar (it's about 4 miles away) and that was an experience. Just like something you'd see in a film!

The hotel doesn't have a restaurant so we ate at the diner on the main street in Kanab (can't remember the name) which was great and then at The Rocking V in the evening which is more of a restaurant and was very good - it's also an art gallery with gifts on the upper floor so you can browse around there if you have time to kill whilst you wait for your table.

  • Liked — rooms were lovely and the toiletries smelled great
  • Disliked — someone had the air con on freezing when we first arrived in our room and we had to leave it for 20 minutes on full heat before we could go back in!

My sister, mom, and I went on a road trip in September. We ended up in Kanab, UT on our way down to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Kanab is a neat little town with quirky homesyle restraunts and a tiny post office. It's also semi-close to Paria (they filmed Gunsmoke there, very cool scenery).

So, oh yeah, the hotel...

Great place. Great breakfast. Great service. AWESOME decor. Very clean, very new, very nice people working there. Turns out the manager was from St. Louis. Small world...They also have laundry facilities on the first & third floors which was nice (we were halfway through our road trip and running short on clean clothes).

No complaints. Great stay. Neat old town.

  • Liked — Great western decor.
  • Disliked — Nothing negative to report.

We traveled to Kanab to go to best friends animal shelter and see zion national park. I saw on Trip advisor that the holiday inn had the best ratings so we decided to stay there. I booked the 1 king bed suite featuring nonsmoking. To our surprise the room had a two person jacuzzi bathtub in it. This was in a separate section than the bathroom. The room was very nice and I am sure that we stayed in the nicest room in Kanab. The continental breakfast was good also.
