Forget the high priced lodging in Moab and Cortez when you can support this great little motel. The original owner John is back! Such a wonderful man! Yes the motel is old and the furniture is dated but the rooms are clean and your host is one in a million.We try to stay here whenever we come through, mostly for... More

This place is situated where I wanted to stop on this trip, so I thought I would give it a try. Reservations are a little odd; they require a call back from the owner for a confirmation. Prices are low, and dog fees are reasonable, if that's not an oxymoron. When I got there at about 4:30 there was no... More

Traveling through the area we didn't know there was a a big fest happening. Could not find a room in the Blanding area at all. This motel was recommended to us via another motel. It was over 30 min. in the wrong direction but we had no choice. We pulled in with a humpf, looks can be deceiving...a man warmly... More

I didn't know what to expect for a roadside motel in a little town but I was pleasantly surprised. The service and front desk were very friendly and efficient. My room was slightly old but clean and the bathroom was well done and comfortable with good water pressure. Good variety of TV channels. I'd certainly stay here again in the... More

Friendly people, clean room and fin location for the surrounding national parks. Coffee in the morning with a small breakfast. Large room. Non smoking. Good location. Even the town sheriff came over for a cup of coffee and a talk.

If you want more amenities, keep driving, Cortez and Moab may deliver - at a (much) higher price. If you're content with a clean, comfortable room in a family owned hotel at a good price, this is your place. Front desk/owner will happily show you the room before you check in if you want to be sure. Price was low... More

My husband and I had a reservation at this motel and our trip out went faster than anticipated. We called and they immediately adjusted our reservation to accommodate another night. In total we spent three nights here and would gladly do it again. In room wifi, fridge and microwave, as well as DirectTV. The room was large and spacious and... More

We drove into town after 10pm, on our way to Moab, we called this little place and found vacancy. Very good price for a clean and comfortable place that is family owned. The owner was very polite and helpful. I love small owned businesses like this. We traveled all the way from the tip of South Texas. Stay at this... More

I love to see mom and pop type family businesses succeed. Get to know the owner of this place. Interesting life story. No frills but good value and clean. I'll stay there again. Good pit stop location between Mesa Verde and Arches National parks. You can't beat the price!!

I took a job in Utah and was very tired from driving as it was about 10pm when I found this place. Cortez looked a little sketchy and I kept driving. Happened upon this gem and was pleasantly surprised. It's older, but for $61 total with my dog I wasn't expecting much. The room was big and clean. It came... More
