A bit dated - not the nicest place I've stayed - but the room was fine, the price was very reasonable, and the view outside the room was quite nice (saw some deer and horses outside our window). However, the Wifi was spotty and there was no breakfast.

This motel did not come close to justifying the reviews received. It is an older motel that is poorly maintained and not particularly clean. The walls and carpet were marked and dirty, the sheet had a hole in it, the toilet took a minimum of three flushes to work.

Stayed for a weekend with work... Very nice folks that run the hotel... Rooms are very clean and fresh... Can say anything to find wrong here... Beds are firm and the room was very clean... Staff takes care to make sure rooms are taken care of... Will stay here again if work or pleasure brings me back to Monticello...

Old dated motel. Over priced for what you get. It should be in the $45.00 range for want you get. Old furniture. No continental breakfast and the internet is almost like you are using dial up. Internet was very unreliable. Would not recommend this motel.

This little motel was very neat and clean, had comfortable beds, and great access for our vehicle and trailer. The owner was very accommodating to our late arrival, early departure, and need for a large place to park. We had a large room in the back building with microwave and refrigerator.

It was a one person room with a queen bed, microwave and frig, coffee maker, complementary coffee. Clean linen and hot shower and free wifi. The front desk was friendly. It meets my minimum standards for... More

Stayed here one night on a 16 day road trip. Of the many similar budget motels I stayed in, the Blue Mountain Horsehead Inn was one of the best and definitely the least expensive. I had a petite queen room in the front, and it was definitely small. Big enough for just me, but if you have more than one... More

I traveled to Monticello, Utah on business. I stayed at the Blue Mountain Horsehead Inn. IT is an older hotel with a young heart ..The owners live on site and go all out to make you stay memorable. I stayed in a unit that had a kitchenette which greatly reduced my food cost. The room was clean, well laid out... More

This is a basic hotel for simple nights stay. Employees were so nice and helpful with directions. Bed was comfortable but AC was noisy. Easy to find, right on the hi way. Computer in lobby with lots of spa and fliers about local attractions. No breakfast but local places to eat. Fair rate.
