We looked in both Blanding & Monticello for this trip and found mediocre to poor reviews everywhere. With our AAA discount, this place was considerably less. I probably got what I paid for and guests at other hotels paid more but didn't get what they paid for. First the cons--the faucet dripped, the furnishings were old and chairs stained, the bathroom floor was dangerously slippery (be careful stepping out onto that bathmat as it might slip out from under you) and the continental breakfast minimal with bread products/danish/muffins, oatmeal, juice and coffee--which was available 24 hours. However, despite older furnishings and a dripping faucet, I slept soundly--even in a room facing the highway, had a pleasant shower each day, the room smelled fine, and we had plenty of room to park our oversized truck and ATV trailer. That's what a hotel is for, right? The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, even if housekeping neglected to fully restock our room with new coffee cups and coffee each day. Trust the advice at the front desk and avoid all restaurants in Blanding except the Patio Drive-In which has a large menu and is absolutely scrumptious! All-in-all, I might be back next year.
