The motel is a wonderful place to stay. They have kitchens and BBQ grills in a very nice court yard. I have stayed many times over the years.
Unfortunately YAHOO has them in the wrong town.
The address is 175 S Main St
Fredonia, AZ, not Kanab
We stumbled upon this motel during our road trip to the Grand Canyon. This motel is definitely not a polished hotel chain, but it has other charms. The motel maintains that old-fashioned mom-and-pop style and is really a step back to the past. Unlike other reviewers, I had no problems with cleanliness here, and it was perhaps too harsh for that other reviewer to say that these people live in filth. I went in a group of 3, and we were given a very large room with 2 queens and 1 twin for a very reasonable rate. The sheets and towels were clean, and we could tell that the managers try to maintain the rooms with modern furnishings that serve the purpose. There's free wifi, cable tv, microwave, fridge, working air conditioner, and heater. However, you must bring your own shampoo and instant coffee. Unlike other reviewers, I did not run into any problems with mold, bugs, or the cats running around. The cats are seriously not as filthy as what other reviewers have described. Just stay on the paved cement and don't approach the cats, and you'll be fine. The motel has good value but keep in mind that it's very basic yet satifactory given the price.
THE UPSIDES: I much liked the Grand Canyon Motel, and found the staff courteous and helpful. I also liked the rate, the capacious room, and the grassy courtyard around which the rooms are arrayed. And there's a pretty good restaurant in easy walking distance.
And the free WiFi (perhaps the most important amenity of all) was quick and easy to access.
THE DOWNSIDES: Evidently there are no no-smoking rooms, at least the one in which I stayed smelled vaguely of cigarette smoke. I also wish the staff would discontinue the practice of leaving out food for the neighborhood's feral cats.
Considering cleanliness is one of my most important factors, I thought this place was terrible. The 20 cats in the courtyard make the place feel gross right away. The people that run this place live in filth so I can't imagine they have a very high standard of cleanliness. The value is alright if you need to just crash and go to sleep. The shower was so disgusting we didn't even use it. Kanab is probably a better option.
I like the small town feel, the laid back atomsphere, you can relax on the grounds after a long drive in a wooden swing or round table and chairs. You can borrow a grill and cook out, buy your food 5 min a way in Kanab.The best part are the Managers. Bob and Pat. also Pet friendly.
Thank you Bob and Pat.
Take my word for it, the other person below me is right. This place is a shizz-hole. And yes, the other reviews are fake. They are really advertisements, not reviews. Avoid this place and sleep in Kanab, 7 miles away! They have a much better selection, anyway.
Mold, filth, torn curtains, bugs, scores of cats, overgrown landscaping on the path to the rooms are just a few of the reasons you should avoid this place at all costs. The other posted reviews are obviously bogus.
It is a true taste - but very updated with Wi-Fi, kitchen, etc - of the wonderful old-fashioned motels we used to find on US road trips. Friendly and incredibly helpful proprieters, grassy open spaces, chairs tables and swings to relax in, windows that open, no pressure about check-out, and the opportunity to sit on the front steps of your cabin and look at the stars at night. All this for the best rate to be had most anywhere and especially in this somewhat overpriced area.
Thank you Bob!
Grand Canyon Motel is a little family style motel, probably built in the 1940's, with cabins surrounding a grassy courtyard. Rooms are updated, clean and comfortable, some with kitchens. Grills and seating available in the courtyard area. Would especially recommend for families looking for a great value less than an hour away from the north rim of the Grand Canyon and other national parks.
