We decided to go on a quick 2 day trip to Vernal to see the Dinosaur Monument snd other venues. Our motel was an older motel but is well maintained. You could tell the motel had been recently painted and looked nice. We are Choice Hotel members and when we went in to the lobby, we were greeted with a... More

It's just an average older motel. It looks like it's been there for 40-50 years. The bed is kind of hard. It does have a microwave and a mini-fridge. There is plenty of hot water. Nothing special about it. There is a dinosaur museum within walking distance.

Young lady that checked us in very pleasant, rooms are small but clean! Beds are a tad too firm but minor in the scope of things. Mike checked us out the next morning and he was very accommodating and even sent us on our way with 2 bottles of water!

I've stayed at this particular place multiple times amd have never had to say anything....until now. The beds aren't comfortable, unless you like sleeping on plywood. The pillows are nice and the tv and mini fridge are nice too. DO NOT EXPECT THE STAFF TO GO OUT OF THEIR WAY FOR YOU.....FOR ANYTHING...AT ALL!!! Horrible customer service. Now on to... More

There are no cheap rooms in Vernal, so value accommodation is hard to find and we chose the Econolodge based on mostly favourable deals here. The rooms are spacious and generally tidy, but look pretty tatty. I guess the clue is in the name. The walls are paper thin so every cough, sneeze, burp and fart of our neighbour was... More

It seems you can get 'high quality' in Vernal for about $150 or you can get 'average' for about $90. In short, Vernal isn't a cheap place to stay. This property is right on Main Street (convenient but noisy). Rooms do have microwaves and refrigerators. There was no bathtub in our room, only a shower. Breakfast was just o.k. Maybe... More

It's not the hotel's fault that super loud diesel trucks with yelling workers stayed in the room next to us from 8:30 p.m. to 6:45 a.m. They left close to the time we had to get up anyway, but they were yelling "Bueno dias!" to each other and spitting on the pavement, all very clearly heard.

For a little town that lives off tourists, this place is not too bad. The motel is older, with no pool, minimal breakfast (w waffle machine). Our room has a little kitchen area and that was nice for making sandwiches and spread out all our food stuff. When we arrived, they were paving the parking lot, so only half of... More

First of all when we arrived we had a guy (i think the manager) which didnt even smile or was friendly. Then we got our room and it smelled soooo bad! We taught it would be better if we opened the windows that didnt work because they were broken. So we opened the door. After visiting the bathroom and found... More
