This place is run down, smells of pet urine and chemicals attempting to disguise smells. I felt like I needed to keep my shoes on at all times rather than walk on floor with socks or barefoot. There was something on the bed when we arrived that looked like someone had drilled a hole in the wall and left the... More

we travelled through Nevada, Arizona and Utah, and stayed there because we got tired of driving. The owner of this Motel had birthday, and the advertisement on the sign showed it. That is why we chose it and did not continue to drive to another location. It was clean, very simple, but the price was just not adequate for the... More

I came in very late at night after a canyon backpacking trip. I was tired and very stiff and needed a good night's sleep. Alas, the place up the road (Whispering Pines or whatever it's called was full. So I ended up here. I could have used a good firm mattress, but the one on my queen bed should have... More

Not worth the time or money! Have walked inside the rooms two different times and refused to stay. The rooms while they appear clear are musty and smell of mold or something. While the outer appearance isn't too bad the overall feel of this motel is creepy!

Needing a stop over between Brice Canyon and the Grand Canyon, this fitted the bill perfectly. Nice welcome when we got there, though the rooms look fairly shabby from the outside they are spotless on the inside. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've had during this holiday. They are very basic (no hairdryers ladies), but had a... More

Saw this motel online and thought would be a neat place to stop. The pictures online must have been taken when it first opened. This was the most rundown motel I have ever seen. We would NEVER have stayed here, but the other hotels in the area were booked, so we had to. We were on motorcycles, if you are... More

Stayed here early July for a night with my wife. The room was clean and the AC working just fine. The manager was courteous and helpful. Although Hanksville is in the middle of nowhere on the way to nearby national parks, this little inn offers a quiet nights rest for a very reasonable price.

For $85 I want more. The staff looks like a bunch of dirty bikers. They were arguing in the "office" sad place, held together with caulk. The room is worth about $30. Pitch a tent. Not much competion here though. Whispering sands is more, but has free breakfast.
