We picked this motel for its proximity to museums in Vernal (less than one block from the Heritage museum and the dinosaur museum). The room was large and very clean, the parking lot was very well lit and the motel has a playground in back. I liked how comfy the beds were, but the TV reception was poor. The hot... More

When I checked in and went to my room I was greatly surprised at how nice this roadside motel is. Not only was the room clean, It was well maintained and had nice beds and linens. I will stay here again.

The Econo Lodge in Vernal, Utah was a very nice surprise. It had the best, most comfortable beds of any of our hotels on a 2000 mile western driving trip. We stayed here before heading to the Flaming Gorge area and on up into Jackson Hole, WY. Vernal is a pretty town where residents take pride in their community. The... More

The room we had was clean, updated, and large (great for river runners getting their gear organized). The bed was new and comfy. With the window closed, was quiet. The AC unit was not too noisy, either. A great value. We liked the petunia planters here and all over town. Nicely done.

Motel is great for people like me who want to park near the door. Everything is clean and the staff was accommodating for a small request. Ac units are at far end of room in half the motel so they shut down too soon. Kind of a weird design. Most are near the door/window. So cool air has hard time... More

Courteous staff, we got rooms next to each other as per request at time of booking. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, hairdryer, shower with bathtub. We were close to food and conveniences and right across the street from the Utah Field House of Natural History. Very nicely maintained property,... More

Basic, clean, nearby a number of nice restaurants and right on our way for a long road trip. Breakfast was basic, but -- together with room -- fulfilled our needs. I will add: I agree about the smell. The room was clean, but even with hours with the door open, it didn't smell "fresh".

The rooms in this family owned motel are large and clean (ours even had a Lazy Boy chair!). There's a fridge, coffee maker, microwave, a large bathtub (always a plus) and a roomy vanity area.

We were there for 2 nights. The room was clean and confortable and the staff polite and friendly! We will definitely come back if we return to Vernel. We especially enjoyed the Free wi-fi and the free breakfast! The manager was really friendly and easy-going.

Upon checking in, we were greeted at the desk by the manager. Our room had a king sized bed and was nicely furnished for an Econolodge. Breakfast was the usual selection of waffles, cereal and such. Overall, great place to stay in Vernal!
