"I was curious about the layout when booking because there are only a few pics, so here’s a description: When you walk in the front door, you are facing the kitchen sink. To the left is a dining table with 4 chairs. The studio is L-shaped and extends to the right of the kitchen counter. To the right: a tall dresser with the TV on top, bed, futon, and bathroom.
The studio was clean (floors, counters, bathroom, and shower). The sheets were clean but had a baseball-sized tear on the fitted sheet near my head, and the comforter was in need of cleaning. The bed was very cozy, and the futon was nice for lounging and watching TV. There was only one sharp knife and no cutting board, can opener, or bottle opener – unless we just couldn’t find them. We cut things on a plate and used a multi tool from our glove box for the rest. The coffee maker was nice, large, and programmable.
The store downstairs woke us up early in the morning, but it was only really bad on one day. There were two women talking and laughing loudly, and it seemed like it was right out the door (there is a door that connects to the store next to the bathroom door). It was annoying because it lasted so long that it made falling back asleep impossible. If you’re not an early riser (plus there was -1 hour time difference for us), this might be an issue. There were random noises or mumbling heard from downstairs when we were there during business hours, but that was no problem. After closing, it was very quiet. There was no heat on in the evening. As noted in other reviews, the heat/AC is controlled by the store. But there was a small heater that worked well for us, and there was a box fan for summer.
The closest town is Duck Creek Village with a couple places to eat. We wanted to try Hot Mama’s Pizza & Brew, but it burnt down in September. The location is remote and the nearby “towns” do not have much, if anything. Nearly every restaurant or store we saw was closed until you get close to Bryce or Zion or over the hill in Cedar City, but that road is closed once the snow starts. We were glad that we had planned ahead and brought food – and that there was a gas station nearby because there is nothing for miles. We would recommend this place and stay again. If your group is of 4 people, you better be really good friends because it's tight quarters!"
