The bare minimum in a teeny, tiny town Sep 10, 2010
We planned a visit to Bryce Canyon and after doing some research, decided that the town of Panguitch, UT, seemed like a good location. I booked a room at the Blue Pine Motel for $55/night plus tax.
We arrived in the early evening and couldn't believe how small the town was! From what we could tell, there is literally one stop light...and it's blinking red, lol! Anyway, the motel is an old strip style motel, nothing special, but clean enough. Check in was really quick and easy.
We found our room and entered to find a really basic, outdated room. The bed felt cheap and springy and had no headboard, just a bed up against the wall with an outdated spread over it. The sink area was strange because the vanity mirror was not over the sink but on the wall on the right of the sink so a little awkward when getting ready. There were two teeny tiny new bars of soap, no other personal items available. The shower was OK. There was a small TV, microwave and mini-fridge.
So, this place had all the basic necessities, but one huge negative was the headache inducing, stale smoke smell. And this was supposed to be a non-smoking room. Also, the walls are quite thin. We could hear people talking outside for about 2 hours and every truck that goes by sounds really loud. We had to keep the A/C going to try and drown out the noise.
The hotel boasts "the only putting green in town". It's quite funny because there is basically nothing in town and the putting green at the motel is a very small rectangle of astroturf with a couple of holes in it. Kind of a strange thing.
The price was right, but the location was just OK. I hope to visit Bryce again in the future and next time I will try and book a better place closer to the canyon.
