We stayed in the Inn/Motel for two nights ~ the beds were very comfortable. This is a well-worn establishment, catering to people (like our group) who are touring the granduer of Arches National Park. The room was was well outfitted with a desk/lamps, and plenty of storage.It was moderately clean. The shower was adequate, drain plugged while showering, we got... More

When we arrived we were a little wary, as the motel looked quite run down, and our room was close to the busy main road through. However, the room turned out to be clean and comfortable, and the noise from the main road abated during in the night, and we were able to get a good nights sleep. Nothing fancy,... More

Our stay at this motel was not satisfactory at all ! We asked for a quiet room far from the main road but the only one left was just in front of it. The owner told us the room was really quiet when closed but it was not like that . The mattress was totally droopy in the middle so... More

The motel is on main street and close to what we wanted to see. The grocery store is only a block away and a good pizza shop too. The motel is a bit old but was clean and comfortable. We stayed in a Queen Kitchenette which did have a 2 burner stove but NO DISHES OR SILVERWARE. I asked about... More

An good motel, definitely nothing fancy but I'm sure would match up or beat the other choices in this small town. A bit of wear and tear on the carpets and walls, shower fixtures a bit older, etc.. but clean, decently comfortable with friendly front desk staff. Rooms have good amenities for the budget, such as flatscreen TV, free wi-fi,... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how clean this motel was for the price. Nothing fancy for sure but a good one night stop over from the Arches and Moab . Clean, comfortable bed. Easy to get to, not much highway noise, nice guy at checkin. Only complaint was that there was only a very small shower , no tub ................ More

Spent 3 nights in this motel. Good and clean room, very nice and helpful owner. Excellent value especially compared to the outrageous rates in Moab. The motel is closer to the Needles district of Canyonlands than Moab. The only problem was the restaurant choice in that season. All that were open (not manu) for dinner closed at 9.00 which is...

A very clean but older motel, updated with heat pump heating that is a bit noisy. Clean bedding, comfortable and close to the main road through town. Cable TV, free wifi, refrigerator and microwave in room.

We couldn't find place in Moab so we slept in Monticello. Very clean room and bathroom. Big comfortable bed. Refrigerator and coffeemaker inside. Very much light, they use ecological bulbs and many of them so it was very comfortable to read. Reception desk open till midnight

We spent 2 nights here based on trip advisor reviews and price. This motel is convenient for visiting Needles District of Canyonlands which is what we did. As in other reviews, first impression as you drive up is shaky; but I assured my husband that trip advisor reports were good. And we were not let down. The room, which was... More
