Pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness. Spotless! Provides all the needed amenities, EXCEPT customer service. Very unfriendly staff. When asked to see the room prior to checking in, she wouldn't make eye contact- just stared off into space as we walked past her to go into room. Check out was not any better. No one at the desk when we tried... More

While driving through Monticello in March 2016, my husband and I needed a place to rest! It was 2AM and 26 degrees! We pulled up to Wayside Motor Inn and the man at the front desk was not very thrilled! He was not rude, but he was also not very welcoming! We got our room, but the card to open... More

We have spent just one night here, but it was a perfect choose. We booked a two queen bedroom which was very nice and big. Refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, body lotion, shampoo, conditioner so everything that you need. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was average like everywhere in USA.

He didn't say a word, looked a bit pi**** that I disturbed whatever he was doing out back. Gave me form, "Sign here". Gave him my credit card and once swiped he... More

Greeted by a receptionist who just couldn't be bothered. It was 7pm, we were tired after long day travelling and we got told if booking by hotels.com come back in an hour or two even though I could show booking confirmation and reference number. Motel average

This hotel is convenient to a number of national parks. It is a 50's style motel with old bedspreads on the beds. The family room is reasonably priced and sleeps 6 comfortably. The evening desk clerk has as much personality as a stone and answers in monosyllables that provide almost no information. Forget the free wifi except in the office.... More

The First thing that the young lady, that suppose to be the manager, said to me and my family was that there were cheaper hotels around and said we could not stay there and made us cancel the reservation we made with hotels.com. Then my sister tried to make a new reservation, but as soon as she saw us she... More

Older motor court motel that has been very well maintained; American owned & operated. Super clean rooms, grounds & swimming pool. Absolutely no complaints. This was our 'home base' while we visited Canyonlands, Arches, Black Canyon and Blue Mesa. We WILL come back!

The place is clean, has breakfast, a pool, coffee, WiFi, a fridge and microwave in the room. Beds are comfy and tv has cable. The staff is friendly and gave a great dinner suggestion. I would recommend Wayside to others that are travelling and don't expect all the perks of a high end hotel. I would stay here again without... More

Though their sign says they have the best rooms in town, I would disagree. We travel through town quite often on our way to visit family in New Mexico, and have stayed in most of the motels in town. We decided to give this one a try, but were disappointed. The good: the rooms are large, the bed was good,... More
