“Old but clean and inexpensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2010

This place is very old. It made us laugh when we first saw the rooms. However, the rooms are very clean and they come with a TV, fridge, and microwave. Some of the rooms are much bigger than others. They are all very reasonably priced. Mine had a brand new mattress that was really comfortable. A great place to stay for one night.

Please stay away from this trashy motel. This Navajo Trail motel is not cheap, I thought from seeing the good reviews on TripAdvisor this would be a safe bet. We paid $48.00 for a two queen bed room in February! The place smelled like dirty rags and they had bed bugs. When my wife woke up in the morning she had three bites on her neck, we checked the bed and found little black bugs all over the bed. It was so disgusting. We went and complained but the manager was so rude and blamed us for the bugs. He refused to give us any money back. We reported the National 9 Navajo Trail to the health department and BBB.

Please take my warning and stay away from this motel. Unless you like trashy rooms with bed bugs.

This is a big tourist area in SE Utah, with no large towns nearby. During tourist season hotels around here are expensive, especially in Moab, a really neat touristy town to the north, and between Canyonlands and Arches. But at National 9 in Monticello you can get a room for $39 or $45, plus tax. The hotel is on the main highway and the rooms are large and very clean. No breakfast, but coffee is available in the office at 7:30am. There's not much to see in Monticellio, but the Shell gas station has a good Taco Time inside. Arches National Park is spectacular!

Although this motel has a long strange name it is part of a National 9 chain and quite nice. The room was very nice and well maintained. There is some road noise but this would be true of any motel in Monticello. Its far cheaper than the other chain motels in town. A lack of coffee in the office the next morning was the only negative.

  • Liked — QUALITY AND PRICE

We stayed at the National 9 Navajo Trail motel in Monticello in August 2004, and it was the best bargain of our trip. $49 for two ($40 AARP rate) and the room was clean, spacious, quiet. I was reluctant to try a place with such a bland, franchise name, but this was a real gem. No problem or extra charge for our pet, either.
