We find experiences are best when everyone has a clear idea of what they can expect so we'll tell you like it is!
OUR CUSTOMERS // Adventure seekers & travelers who love the great outdoors, who curiously pursue new horizons and are excited to explore the rustic West. Come visit us in the Lobby to get a map or some coffee - typically open 8am-8pm
SERVICE // The Riverside Ranch operates in similar manner to a motor inn- which means we prefer you don't visit with the expectation we are a 5-Star full service resort. Keeping in mind our unique rural location. We do our absolute best to accommodate your basic needs and provide necessities for your comfort. We appreciate your cooperation in not smoking (except in designated area). Our staff are more than happy to help or answer any questions!
LOCATION // The Riverside Ranch is located in a quiet, rural valley in Southern Utah on 25 acres near the quiet town of Hatch (population of only 144!!). Our property was built in the in the late 1970's and is a work in progress. The motel is located just off the well traveled Scenic Hwy 89 ideally located between Bryce and Zion National Parks.
FOOD // While there are places to eat nearby, the hours and ownership may vary seasonally so its always best to call ahead. For your own comfort and convenience its a great idea to bring snacks or visit Joes Grocery store in Panguitch about 15 min drive. We have a BBQ onsite you can use as well.
CLIMATE // Located at 7000 feet Southern Utah primarily has a dry, semi-arid and desert climate. It is one of the driest states in the country with one of the lowest relative humidity percentages. However, some months like July have wonderfully refreshing rainstorms with rainbows & the sage turns green so it can be very surprising. As for wildlife, you may see a bald eagle soaring overhead, deer, local cows, buffalo and rainbow trout in the river!
OUR PROPERTY // offers RV spaces with a uniquely amazing view of the red cliffs and starry skies. RV & Camp area has a public bathroom with showers and toilets and is pet friendly! Nothing fancy but gets the job done. There is a community hall where you can relax, read or play games. Our Motel Rooms are simple, uncluttered, clean and comfortable. We offer free WiFi, a Coin Op Laundry onsite, and community fire pit & BBQ.There are ATV trails you access nearby our property.
PETS // are welcome in our pet designated rooms for a $25 per pet per stay fee. Dogs on property are to be kept on a leash with expectation of owner clean up.
MOTEL CLEANING // We take extra precaution and attention to detail in cleaning. For stays two nights and under, we typically do not enter your room to clean, but we are happy to take out your trash and get you new towels whenever needed (just let us know in the Lobby). For stays 3 nights or longer, you can simply coordinate with our staff to let us know when/if you want your room fully refreshed.
