5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2009

Stayed at this motel for one night on our way to Crater of the Moon.
The room was nice and clean, with refrigerator and micro-wave , confortable beds. It was located at the rear of the motel, overlooking the pool, so we didn't hear the truck noise from the big parking across the street. In the hall : internet access, ice machine and coffee in the morning. A very good night stay for the price we paid.

We booked here in Wells as Wendover was already booked out due to Bonneville Speed Week. We arrived to find a large queue of people all checking in at the same time (most going to Bonneville) but the two staff that were on were happy, helpful and efficient. There was free internet on a computer in the Check In lobby which was handy for us 'laptopless' couple. The motel was great, staff good, restaurant across the road (next to truck stop) excellent value for money (family type) food and service and travel time to Bonneville Salt Flats was a good easy drive of around an hour . We did have issues with our door card not letting us in which was rather frustrating but, again, the staff were most helpful and fixed this for us quickly. Would definitely recommend to others travelling to Bonneville if you can't get a booking (or afford) a stay in Wendover.

We stayed in Wells on our way from Lake Tahoe to Yellowstone and picked the place because we dont mind staying in a motel 6.

Wells is not much of a town but the stay at the motel was better than expected.

Rooms were old style but clean and the pool was accually heated.
If you have to stay in Wells this looks like the best choice.

Over the years we have stayed at this motel several times as it is a one day drive from our home. It has been updated and we find that it is a good value for us. Motel 6 is not a frills chain and we do not expect them to have hairdryers, microwaves, etc. This motel has access to the internet by using a computer in the office and even though there is a truck stop nearby it is quite quiet. Restaurants and gas stations are nearby.

Very small rooms, wierd shower, small beds. Reserved a non smoking room but got a room that was heavy in smoke smell, and there was an ash tray in the room. The towels didn't fit around my waist and I have a 33" waist, so not big. The front desk people were nice and the room was cheap. I guess you get what you pay for.

Stopped here for a night because it seemed like a good first day stopping point on the way to Idaho and Montana. Booked in advance for first night of an extended road trip with very strange and borderline hostile guy who answered the phone there. Called to confirm day before, and no record of reservation existed. Fortunately, the nice woman who answered the second time had an opening and rebooked us. The room was clean, but the shower was like a fine mist and it took forever to rinse. The big minus was the queen bed that was tired and worn out. Woke up feeling 100 years old. Definitely the worst mattress of a trip that included 20+ low budget accomodations.

Wells itself is another matter. Explored town for food and discovered whole downtown is crumbling and the only thing in town is casinos. Front desk guy recommended we visit 4 way Casino for dinner and beware the drunks on the way home. Took that advice and regretted it. Paid way too much for bad food and practically choked to death eating it. Made it past all the drunks and low lifes and back to the room and considered driving to Idaho the next morning for breakfast. Found the Cookery instead, and that wasn't too bad, aside from all the drunks guzzling beers at 8:30 in the morning. This Motel 6 is best experienced by arriving late and leaving early.

We had flown into Sanfrancisco and hired a car to head up to the Bonneville Speedweek We had not booked accomodation ahead at Wendover as it was booked out 12 months in advance.We were Lucky enough to get 3 days at the Motel 6 at this little town at Wells .the motel was out of the 60s but it was still tidy and presentable the Staff were all veryPolite and helpful and the rooms were clean and presentable,the Tarriff was fine and for a couple from Australia the most average things about the little town were interesting good food was available across the road at the cantina and at a very reasonable cost. We would recomend the motel6 at Wells as a comfortable stopover to anyone It may not be buckingham palace but its clean and priced right... Definately check it out....
