The coolness of our room was a paradise after a day of hiking in the heat !! It was comfortable, and quiet. We would have appreciated if there had been a pool,this is the only thing that was missing !! Other than that, a great stay in Hanksville

The price was great, the rooms were clean and comfortable. There is no breakfast option. Very interesting set-up with a main motel and then a line of buildings that look like Tuff Sheds stretching out to the side. We stayed in one of the Tuff Shed buildings. My son did slip and fall in the shower and get hurt, although...

We stayed here one night after a week's outdoor activities in Colorado and spending the last night to view Goblin Valley and Capitol Reef before we head for home. The motel was an easy access from the highway. It was clean and comfortable with basic amenities but without breakfast. The good thing about this place was no pets were allowed...

We spent two nights at the Whispering Sands Motel in March for a family vacation. Although not fancy, our room was very clean and comfortable, and the rate was great. The various amenities offered worked as expected, and though the hotel was full our last night there, our room always felt quiet and private. The Whispering Sands made a great...

Spent one night here when passing through the area while I was on vacation for outdoor activities. No reservation but no problem getting a room. The room was basic: queen bed that was comfortable but the pillows are hard; desk and chair; small loveseat; in-room coffee; microwave and fridge. Non-smoking. Quiet. There is a laundry room. Cafe across the street....

Whispering Sands is a great place to stay. Great value. We stopped here between visiting Capitol Reef and Natural Bridges. The road out of town (95 going East is a scenic byway and so pretty). We stayed in a room on the ground floor. It was clean and very comfortable - probably the most comfortable hotel mattress we have ever...

The rooms were very clean. The beds were memory foam which was awesome. The satellite TV was funny. Only a few channels. No breakfast provided at least they didn't say anything. WiFi is slow but it is remote. Not a bad place to stay you could walk to a few places in town.

Been staying here for a number of years. Always clean and very nice. They have everything you may need in the room. Everything! Very convenient to Stan's Burger Shack and Blondie's eatery. Blondie' s has great breakfast sandwiches. The value at whispering sands exceeds the price even after April 1st.
