Stayed here 7/15/15. This is a basic motel that is a little worn but the room I got was clean though a little small. 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.

I usually stay away from indie hotels. This is based on a lot of bad experience. Coming in to the reception I immediately get a bad vibe on this place. It smells weird, they sell weird novelty items and even the lady behind the desk strikes me as....weird. I can work with weird but getting my room turned weird in... More

Really comfy beds, great water pressure! We could park our Bike right by our door...always a good thing. Friendly owners. Clean. (It's an older motel is the only reason it got 4 stars.) would stay here again. Free wifi and nice TV. We chatted with other bikers, which was fun!

Clean comfortable room at a fair price, what more could you ask for? The room had 3 beds too, which was rare but nice, for my family of 5. The owner was very friendly and helpful as well. We would stay here again.

On June 8 we were on a road trip it was 11pm and on hotels.com I booked a room for one night. We arrived at 11:10 and there was a sign on the door that said no check in after 10 or 10:30 pm - that made me wonder why hotels.com would let me book the room. I called hotels.com... More

Had booked a two-bedroom for a night on our way from Salt Lake City to Monument Valley, and got what we wanted, including a kitchenette. The reseptionist was very friendly, the rooms had a fridge and were clean.
