The people here were nice, the room was ok. It was clean and included a coffee maker, fridge, and microwave. But the shower pressure was bad, and the front door wouldn't shut without serious force being applied. Really, the issue here is price - I agree with other reviewers the price is about $25 too high for the accommodations. But there are few other options.

If we had not just ridden motorcycles from Durango, we would have kept on going. This was a nightmare. We had to go down to the Family Dollar store and purchase some air freshener and disinfectant to cover up the smell. Something bit my wife on the hand during the night and by the time we got to Pinedale, WY for our next stop, her hand was red and swollen so we assume she was probably bitten by a spider. Stay here only if you have to.

For some reason, hotels in this tiny town are way overpriced. You can drive to Vernal and stay in a hotel just like this one, for under $60. If you must stay in Rangely, this hotel is clean and the manager is helpful. But $80-90 for a single is about $25 too much.

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.

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.
