Spending time in Kanab is like being in a real life Western film, with the landscape here having been used as the setting of many classic films. Kanab is a rustic Hollywood where battles for pride have been won and lost. Theatrics aside, the region is remarkably beautiful. Imagine golden sunsets over red dust canyons, strolls through one of the region’s 3 national parks, or even calm sailing on the oasis that is Lake Powell.
Hotels in Kanab
If you hadn’t noticed Kanab’s fascination with the Western theme to begin with, you sure will once you step into your hotel room. Be prepared for cacti on every surface and images of Butch Cassidy at every turn.
Décor aside, the level of accommodation in Kanab is impressive. The city has its fair share of luxury hotels, such as the Comfort Inn Kanab, while the Victorian Inn near Frontier Movie Town is a popular boutique option.
Where to stay
Most visitors like to be at the heart of the action. If this sounds like you, then Downtown Kanab is probably where you’ll find yourself. Downtown is centrally located in this stunning region and home to such great hotels as the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites Kanab.
Located just 20 minutes’ drive from Little Hollywood, Mount Carmel Junction is a quiet but scenic base in the region. Hotels in the vein of the Best Western East Zion Thunder can be found out here.
Travelers who are really looking for an escape can always spend a few nights at the great Lake Powell. The area is a bit of a drive away and there aren’t many hotels aside from a few rustic lodges but a trip here won’t disappoint.
