This is the 2nd time in a year that we have used this facility. Each time we have been treated exceptionally well. Stds. Room, clean, and a King size bed for under $50. Hot showers, normal TV stations, Nuker & refridge, relatively fast WiFi, and areas for animals to explore and releave themselves, all compliment making this an OK place... More

Other nearby hotels were $70+, but P.K. Vyas agreed to $40 plus tax. The beds were new, and the rooms clean. The decor (including the knotty wood paneling) was a bit dated, but overall a good experience.

The motel was quiet and pleasant and set far back from the road. It was close to a local supermarket and other amenities. The room was clean and comfortable. We had a large room, en suite, with tea/coffee making facilities, microwave and fridge. Although it was so cheap, the room and facilities were much better than many other motels including... More

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
