Our room was clean and well appointed. We stayed in a single bed room. The check in was easy and access from our car to our room simple. Outside are comfortable chairs to watch the world go by from. The only criticism would be the traffic noise from the busy road at the front. Perhaps a room not facing the... More

Well the reason it is called motor inn is because of the motors passing by. It is located off the main road through town. It cannot help but suffer from the noise of trucks and cars passing by. They should consider sound proofing the units. The units were decent. Nothing spectacular. It is good enough if you are passing by... More

Room is ok, borderline dirty. Nothing special. Bed is a little hard. Walls and ceiling are not sound proof and you can hear everything around your room. Inn at the Canyons is a much better choice. A bit pricey for what you get.

Canyonlands Motor Inn used to be my favorite place to stay in Monticello. The Inn was ran by Nick and his sweet wife Alma...always friendly, and Nick would always give me a great deal on a room. Nick passed away a year or so ago and now his brothers are running the place and things have definitely changed for the... More

The room was good. Nice and clean. It smelled like it was fresh paint but wasn't offensive. The two people in the office were very nice. When you first drivein you will be in front of the old building. Don't let that fool you. You will be roomed in the building behind that you cannot see from the road and... More

Nice, comfy bed and place to rest while traveling through beautiful SE Utah! Clean, modest accommodations, especially when you find yourself in the middle of nowhere and you're too tired to keep driving.

What nice people! This is an older motel, but the rooms are extremely clean. Everything worked as it should and the bed was very comfortable. This was also the most reasonably priced room in town. Generally I would rate a motel this age about a three, but the friendly service makes even a four seem a little low.

This is not the best place to stay. Old, smells old and the beds and furniture match the first description. Never again! Check other hotels before staying here. Only one nice looking hotel in the town.

Pet friendly, room was clean although dark and run down, WiFi is not good. There is no coffee maker and the hot water is very limited. Shower fast and plan to wait to rinse off while the tank reheats. Overpriced, for $50 a night it would be fine, but for $88 it is not worth it at all.

No frills, but a clean room, appreciated the fridge, great location, great value. Was able to park right outside the room, which faced the street/highway, but the traffic didn't bother us. Office staff was very nice and helpful. Would stay here again if I were passing that way.
