God this makes me not want to be at work today. Maybe I shouldn't have just said that.

Stayed for one night in late November. Having already tried the Prospector and the Padre on previous trips, thought I'd finish the trifecta by staying at the Circle D. The room was clean and functional, and I especially appreciated the trail guide and other informational materials in the room. The bathroom was also clean, with a bit of evidence of wear and tear. Service was friendly and welcoming, and wifi worked fine. It's been a few years since I stayed at Prospector, but I think the rooms there are a bit newer. On the other hand, it's a much bigger motel and I remember it being pretty noisy. I'd be fine staying at either again, and would probably go with whichever is more affordable (the Padre is a distant third). The B&Bs in Escalante get great reviews, so will start trying those next trip.

A buddy of mine and I stayed here for one night while day hiking the San Rafael swell and Horseshoe Canyon area. Our room was clean and functional (micro, fridge, coffee maker), and the service was friendly -- we had no complaints whatsoever and could happily have stayed several days. As with any affordable roadside motel, you can expect a little bit of noise from neighboring rooms, but that's to be expected. Protip: Stan's Burger Shack is nearby and a popular roadside spot. We made the mistake of grabbing dinner before checking in -- you get a coupon when you check in!

My parents and I shared the Sedona Breeze room over the Thanksgiving weekend, and have nothing but great things to say about our stay. Despite being three to the room, we never felt cramped because the room is spacious (the bathroom is huge). The murphy bed was perfectly comfortable as well. In addition to the tasteful decor, the fireplaces, and absurdly large bathroom, what set Adobe apart in my mind was the little touches that made the whole stay more than just a nice room -- including a complimentary snack basket every day, fresh bread in an in-room breadmaker upon request, a gift of some nice water bottles, tea and cookies set out in the reception each night, a lovely breakfast. Also, the service was friendly and excellent. Everyone seemed happy and helpful, and they were very patient and accommodating to my parents (who are a bit older). Also, little touches like offering to make a custom breakfast to bring back to the room one morning when I slept in show how they go the extra mile here. All in all, an amazing place to stay. We felt very well taken care of but not in a pretentious or inauthentic way. The only potential downside is that the property is located in the newer area of town which has a bit less "character" (i.e., less touristy) than other areas. But it's conveniently located to great hiking and some good places to eat which seem more popular with the locals. Wouldn't even think about staying somewhere else our next time.

Glug glug glug! That whiskey was daaaammn straight. I think they might have a secret stash of other substances, if you catch my drift. *wink wink*

Stayed here with a friend for one night during the off-season in late November 2013. The room was comfortable and clean. We arrived late, and it being the off-season they understandably had closed up and left us a key. To my surprise, the next morning they apologized and gave us a discount for not being around! Just one example of the very friendly service that is noted in other reviews. I've also stayed at the nearby Austin's Chuckwagon Motel as well as the Best Western Capitol Reef. I liked the Broken Spur and Austin's equally well and would happily stay at either again (Austin's closes during the off-season). The Best Western is OK too, but not quite as good in my opinion.

We stayed here for one night at a special rate ($99) obtained through the Hotel Tonight app. The grounds are nice in a rustic way -- it feels sort of like a lodge in a national park setting. Our room was clean but a bit dated, and on par with above-average quality roadside motels we've stayed at, with little additional touches like a high beamed ceiling and a little stoop area to sit. The breakfast room is lovely in a old-timey way, though the food was just average and not very plentiful. The location is pretty removed from Carmel-by-the-Sea, but there's no shortage of decent restaurant options just down the road in Carmel Valley. For first-timers to the area, the distance from the ocean may be disappointing; for regulars familiar with the area who don't mind driving around a bit, the lodge may be a good (and cheaper) alternative to staying in Carmel or Monterey.

We stayed at the Nolitan for three nights. The hotel is modern and new, and caters to a younger dare-I-say hipster crowd (skateboards and iPads available to borrow), at a more affordable price point (usually) than The Standard or other popular boutique hotels. The room was small, as is typical for NYC but the space is used well. Wood floors, a lot of concrete surfaces and modern furniture. Windows are decent sized but a little high off the ground, giving the room decent light but a little bit more of a boxy feel than the floor-to-ceiling windows at The Standard or The Bowery. Because of the extensive use of wood and concrete, the acoustics on our floor were not great -- you could pretty much hear sounds from many nearby rooms. And on the 4th floor, we did get some street noise. Service was super helpful and sincerely friendly. The location is ideal if you're spending most of your time in the Nolita, SoHo, Chinatown, or Lower East Side. Subway access is convenient to the F, 6, B, and D lines -- transfer required for the A/C/E line so other locations are more convenient if you're focused on the west side. Overall, we'd stay there again so long as the prices continue to be more reasonable than other higher profile hotels.
