Luckly, we found Best Western hotel @ Mount Carmel to stay. Mount Carmel is a perfect place to stay if you want to visit...

we found it a nice place to prepare for a hike in Zion NP and especially to "refill our batteries" after a breathtaking hike in the narrows, good hotel, nice restaurant with great food at reasonable prices and still not too far from Zion NP

We ran across this place late at night on our way to a BW in Kenab, so we decided to stay here instead. The "town" was just a junction, in the middle of nowhere. I am a BW Rewards Elite member. Online that day, BW was offering a 10% discount. So the clerk said the price was $118. We asked...

The location of this hotel is very good, as it is at the junction of the roads going to Zion and Bryce National Parks if coming up from the Grand Canyon South rim. The twin bedded rooms were very spacious and newly renovated, with good WIFI. We had dinner and breakfast at the adjoining restaurant which was a bit pricey...

Awesome place, big room, very clean, big tv and a good size bathroom. The staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to help.

Spent one night at this hotel headed home during Thanksgiving holiday. The staff was very friendly and the location is great. Our room had a microwave and mini fridge. This hotel is showing its age and the rooms could use with an update or even a complete remodel. The restaurant food was just okay. The grounds are beautiful with a...
