Clean, washer & dryer on site. Fridge & microwave in room. We were able to have an ajoining room with our friends. Subway attached so did not need to go anywhere for supper. Nice beds, large bathroom.

Pricey for a low frills motel. But it was clean and the room had a fridge. And the registration clerk was very helpful and friendly.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2009

We stayed here because it was convenient to Dinosaur National Monument and we didn't want to trael any farther that day. I had spoken to the proprietor a couple of times on the phone and he comes across as kind of surly but it is just his voice. When we met him the night of our stay he was very forthcoming and helpful and gave us excellant advice on where to eat.
The room was very clean! The TV had a zillion channels and the Internet was faster than I have at home. Microwave, mini-fridge, single cup coffee maker. Only downside was the stingy shower head which I almost always find in motels. OK place to stay in a town without many other options.

Unfortunately if you ever have to stay in Rangely, CO, there aren't too many choices. Motels are very overpriced, with little competition. We paid $80/night to stay here, and if this place was located anywhere else it would be $29.99/night. Simple motel, didn't seem very clean. I hope I don't ever have to stay there again. There is a nicer motel in town, but it is like $150/night.

We stayed at the Budget Host in Rangely on 9/19/08 while on our way to visit Dinosaur NM. After reading the many awful reviews of all the hotels in Vernal UT, I felt that we ethically couldn’t support those establishments and instead chose to stay in Rangely CO. While Rangely is not exactly next door to Dinosaur NM, the drive to Dinosaur was under an hour and therefore entirely acceptable for us.

Amenities: Average sized room with very typical motel furnishing. Microwave and mini-fridge. Laundry, vending and ice.

What we liked: It was clean. It was new. We got a reasonably good night of sleep. Very nice library next door with computers and internet access.

What we didn’t like: Bathroom door wouldn’t shut. Dead bolt on outside door wouldn’t latch. Room wasn’t ready until 6pm. Shower was an incredible torrent unlike anything we’ve ever seen before! Thin walls allowed noise from street and parking lot to be easily heard (luckily there wasn’t much of either). Bed had a plastic cover that made an unpleasant rubbery crinkling sound when moving around. Extremely small town with very limited dining options. Lighting in bathroom was very dim. Expensive ($109).

Would I stay there again? If I had to make the choice again between Vernal and Rangely, I would choose Rangely again because it was convenient enough, and because Vernal hotels are awful. That said, the Budget Host would be the choice.
