Fodor's Expert Review Stone Lizard Lodge

88 W. Center St., Blanding, Utah, 84511, USA

This rustic yet classy spot stands out from the local hotel chains and motor lodges with its individually decorated rooms, all with local art on the walls and Navajo-style rugs on the hardwood floors. Built in 1947, this was Blanding's first hotel and has maintained its historic feel while adding the requisite modern touches, including high-speed Internet and flat-screen smart TVs. Large groups can book the Family Suite, with three bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a livingroom.

PROS

  • one of the most comfortable lodgings around
  • hearty continental breakfast, with several hot items and homemade baked goods
  • calming garden area

CONS

  • smallish rooms (due to being built in the 1940s)
  • more expensive than most other lodgings in the area
  • a limited number of pet-friendly rooms (and only dogs are allowed)
