It was clean, with comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, and the air conditioner worked fine.But the outside looked so scarey that I saw one potential customer drive into the parking lot, look around and drive right back out. It looks scarey because it's one of those old 50s style strip motels, and the outside hasn't changed much since. I... More

We drove up to this motel (it is NOT a B&B) and immediately tried to find another room in Blanding. All were full. Defeated, we checked in. The smell of "room deodorizer" in the office should have warned us. In the room, the smell was overpowering, and there was a broken window, with the glass just hanging there. I went... More

Basic accommodation. Good for the value. I was traveling from Colorado. Everything was booked and this is the only place had a room. Rooms were quite big with decent bedding, Coffee, fried and micro was not expected. Close distance to everything. It can use major remodeling.

When I stop to get a motel, it's for 3 things... a bed, a shower and internet. This place did have a bed. I came into Blanding as it was getting dark... around 9:00pm. I always look for the hotels that are partially full. don't need most amenities that are offered now-a-days... like breakfast or microwave or shampoo. Prospector had... More

We were looking for a great value local to the this area. What got was a clean room with very nice pillow top mattresses that gave us great sleep.

While my husband says I am picky I did not like this motel at all. First I will say the bed was clean but everything else was grubby and the lighting very poor. The door to the outside had marks like someone had tried to break in so I slept fully clothed for the two nights I had booked. Blanding... More
