Logan, UT

Utah State University


Utah State University (USU) is just 1.5 miles from the historic SureStay Collection Baugh Motel by Best Western. Founded in 1999, USU has grown from a small college hidden in the Northern Utah mountains to a top-rated research university.

Known for its technological and intellectual prowess, USU is ideally located a short drive from two mountain ranges. Both the Baugh Motel and USU are a day trip from six national parks including Arches and Yellowstone. Students looking for all the opportunities of a “big school” with the comfort of a small school feel can have it all at USU.

Ranked fifth in the Washington Monthly’s “National University Rankings” of 2017, USU has been a favorite for students pursuing degrees in a wide range of fields for years. Baugh Motel is proud to regularly host families of students in Logan for graduations and homecomings.

A number of alumni guests also prefer to stay at the Baugh Motel for the location and many amenities. This Logan hotel is located in the heart of the historic district and within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. However, with a Thai restaurant on-site, guests are always just minutes away from authentic, delicious fare.

Whether guests at the Baugh Motel are visiting faculty, in town for an USU event, or touring the campus, there’s plenty to do off campus, too. Logan visitors can take advantage of snow-mobiling in the winter, horseback riding in the summer months, and visiting the Willow Park Zoo and America West Heritage Center. Ski hills including Cherry Peak in Richmond 10 miles away and the Beaver Mountain Ski Resort are both popular destinations in the winter months.

If an event at USU is what brings you to Logan, staying within walking distance of the campus and in the historic district will make your stay even better. The Baugh Motel is proud to be a home away from home for USU alumni, future students, and their families.

Guests of the Baugh Motel particularly enjoy:
  • This Logan hotel’s ability to accommodate large groups, especially during graduation and homecoming season
  • The benefits of a recently updated hotel with new carpet, furniture, and beds along with the latest technology
  • Being steps away from the only outdoor pool in Utah
  • Staying in the historic district and being less than two miles from USU
