On vacation from the UK and on our way to Bryce and Zion. Very basic but clean modestly priced motel in the outback of Utah with WiFi. Wonderful surrounding scenery. Owner very welcoming and proud to show off his pet cat. Opposite is Dukes Slickrock Grill, (10% discount if you mention you're staying at the Inn). Some of the finest... More

For a quick night's sleep, this place is fine at a good price. Came in late at night, and in fact just had them leave the rooms open for our group. Then we got up and left early. Although old, the rooms were well kept and the beds comfortable.

Stayed 1 night in early September 2014. Hanksville is quite a unique spot with character and this motel has a character that fits the remote location. The motel owner greeted me when I checked in and gave me all the info I needed (such as getting a discount at restaurant opposite if I mentioned that I was staying at the... More

Ok...the place is old. There are some patches & hard water stains on the bathroom walls,but guess what? The rooms are clean,linens fresh, and there's a fridge, microwave,& TV. Fire pits and deck are a nice addition. What this motel lacks in genteel ambience,it makes up for in character. Add to that a 10% discount at the great steakhouse across... More

Don't be put off by the rustic sign or the tattered chairs outside the rooms. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and incredibly friendly. The staff treated us like family. An excellent value. We would go out of our way to stay there again. There are plenty of soulless, characterless motels in America and fortunately Hanksville Inn is NOT one of... More

The Hanksville Inn is a wonderful family run joint that has been completely rebuilt by Ed, the current owner. The first year he owned the property a flood hit and as the lowest point in all of Hanksville, the inn took two feet of water all throughout. Since then, Ed has repainted, reupholstered, rewired, and installed new bathrooms in every... More

My husband and I have been traveling cross country and this hotel was the worst in our 3 month trip. Stay at the other motel, whispering sands? if possible. There are only two in Hanksville, and nothing else for miles. We wished we would have camped but it was too cold. No updating can save this motel, it needs to... More

We've been traveling around CO, WY, ID, UT, AZ and NM. We've stayed in a mix of mom and pops and places like Hilton Garden Inn and B & B's. This is not the worse mom and pop we've stayed in and with only two to choose from, you can't be too picky. Room larger than expected but most certainly... More

Not the best, but there's not much to choose here. The place was smelling not very clean and flies where everywhere. Overprised old Inn, but with a friendly staff. An old rocker with long hair, but very friendly. We survived, so will you.

Where to begin... how about a few positive items? Staff was friendly. Hot water was hot. AC was cold... sort of, but noisy. 10% discount on food at the restaurant across the street. That's about it. We arrived on a rainy night. We checked in and got a key... an actual metal key... not one of those plastic magnetic cards.... More
