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

We were originally planning on booking a hotel in Moab, but the prices were outrageous. We found Monticello and looked at the great priced hotels there. When we called Blue Mountain we were around 500 miles away, not knowing the path were were about to take, and that we were about to be out of cell coverage for several hours... More

Stayed here on a recent trip to Canyon Lands NP. Place was very clean, very affordable, and very comfortable. Staff was very friendly too. A great find, always enjoy staying local if we can do it. Definitely a flash back to the past.

Location: fine. Staff: friendly & polite. Make sure you request the updated rooms in the side & back buildings. We were in the front building in a 2-room queen with kitchenette. The front building is clean, but looks like it hasn't been updated since the 1940s when the motel was built. AND be sure to bring your own kitchen items... More

I booked the "deluxe King Suite" - may I say there was nothing sweet about it. The bath is small, only has a shower, which did not drain properly, and very tight. Bumped my head on wall when washing my legs. Refrigerator did not work properly and I worried about my medication, so purchased ice and kept it in the... More

I was driving up Hwy. 191 and it was getting late when I arrived in Monticello looking for a place to stay. I was basically looking for "a bed and a head" and hoping not to pay too much. I was pleasantly surprised with the Blue Mountain Horsehead Inn. The gentleman who checked me in was friendly. The rate for... More

If you need a hotel between Monument Valley and Moab, this is a good choice. Spacious room, nothing fancy, but all you need is there. Good quality free WIFI. Be aware that in the evening after 9:30 you will not find any restaurant in this place; we had to buy some instant meals from the gas station and heated them... More
