We stayed at the Budget Host in Rangely on 9/19/08 while on our way to visit Dinosaur NM. After reading the many awful reviews of all the hotels in Vernal UT, I felt that we ethically couldn’t support those establishments and instead chose to stay in Rangely CO. While Rangely is not exactly next door to Dinosaur NM, the drive to Dinosaur was under an hour and therefore entirely acceptable for us.
Amenities: Average sized room with very typical motel furnishing. Microwave and mini-fridge. Laundry, vending and ice.
What we liked: It was clean. It was new. We got a reasonably good night of sleep. Very nice library next door with computers and internet access.
What we didn’t like: Bathroom door wouldn’t shut. Dead bolt on outside door wouldn’t latch. Room wasn’t ready until 6pm. Shower was an incredible torrent unlike anything we’ve ever seen before! Thin walls allowed noise from street and parking lot to be easily heard (luckily there wasn’t much of either). Bed had a plastic cover that made an unpleasant rubbery crinkling sound when moving around. Extremely small town with very limited dining options. Lighting in bathroom was very dim. Expensive ($109).
Would I stay there again? If I had to make the choice again between Vernal and Rangely, I would choose Rangely again because it was convenient enough, and because Vernal hotels are awful. That said, the Budget Host would be the choice.
