Beautiful and peaceful spot
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights while we explored Bears Ears and Natural Bridges. Things were obviously a little different they had a beuatiful bar for a better time, and what looked to be a lovely restaurant. The property was beuatifully maintained, it was rustic and had great scenery. We stayed in a cabin. We hope to return on a somewhat regular basis it was really great to discover this spot.

Pool with a view!
I'm pleased that they had the pool open given COVID restrictions. The photos in the advertisements for this place definitely look exactly the same in person. What a great view! I stayed in a standard room at this hotel and there wasn't anything particularly special about it. I will say that it was odd to not have a microwave in the room and we were actively wanting to heat something up so that was a disappointment. Other than that, it met all expectations. Would recommend to anyone passing through. They had 2 electric car chargers, both of which were working. This was my specific reason for picking this hotel over others in SE Utah.

Desert Oasis of comfort and beauty!
Desert Rose is an oasis in the southwest of natural beauty! We were speechless to realize we had booked such a beautiful place via hotels.com. It was a last-minute booking since our Navajo reservation lodgings were canceled at the last minute.
We stayed here for two nights and I could’ve easily stayed here for two weeks. I can hardly wait to go back here.

We stayed here 3 nights and it was heaven. The resort presents well from the street. When you open your room door you are amazed. The room is beautifully decorated. Simple but making a statement. Total feeling of luxury. Something you wouldn't expect for a small town. We stayed on the second floor not facing the street and had a great view. Room was very clean and large. Beds were great. The shower curtain and rings were very high class. Towels were great. Sink was separate with plenty of counterspace. The pool was in a separate building and was huge. Very clean. There are also stand alone cabins which appeared to be quite popular. We stayed in the main building. There were also rooms in the pool building. I am so glad we stayed here. I didn't want to leave. You know how you look at Internet pictures and hope the place will be as nice as it looks. This place was even better in person. Find any excuse to stay here. Even if it is just for one night. Totally wonderful. Staff was also very helpful and friendly.

the perfect luxury base camp
Spacious rooms, gorgeous redrock views — the Desert Rose provided an ideal base camp for three days of journeys in the Bears’ Ears/Four Corners area. Despite having to close its restaurant as a consequence of the pandemic (further limiting the minimal dining options in Bluff), the resort still stands head-and-shoulders above all other lodging options in the area; it’s Olympic-sized indoor pool provides a welcome source of exercise, not to mention stunning vistas. Not complaint: pillows can be hard as rocks, so if you have neck issues, best to bring your own.
