First thing was that Best Western (corporate) messed up our reservation, telling the facility we were coming on a different day. Luckily, they were still able to accommodate us, but only after a lot of confusion. The room itself was okay, but the temperature was hard to control due to the knobs on the heater/fan being broken. Plus there was...

noisy, nonfunctional bath vent, echo rooms, loud doors, way overpriced compared to other, better hotels in town. I've stayed here several times before and the quality appears to be going down. Newer motels are in town at better rates, more comfort.

Nice clean big room and a great breakfast with personal prepared eggs and a good location for a visit to the monument. The monument is only 10 miles away and is a must visit for any dinosaur buffs with the actual diggings housed in a large building built right around the exposed mountainside. Plenty of historical information and a well...

Large room with two sinks - very useful. Even the TV remote had been cleaned. Comfortable beds with comfortable benches at the foot. Nice breakfast included - with the extra perk of made-to-order eggs. Friendly staff. A good place to stay for sure.

This place was like a little gem in the heart of Vernal. Super clean and reasonably priced. The beds were nice and comfy. I also liked that you can park right outside you room door. The breakfast buffet was nice, cooked to order eggs is always a bonus.

This hotel had just been renovated and was beautiful. Huge bathroom and the green in me me liked the soap and shampoo dispensers rather than the wasted paper and plastic wrapper/containers. Best breakfast we had on this trip, eggs cooked to order, bacon, sausage, cereal, fresh fruit, hash browns, bagels, yogurt, toast, and my favorite soda as well as coffee...

The motel itself is nothing special, but it was super clean and quiet. We had to change the dates of our stay at the last minute (literally same day) and the staff did that without a problem and didn't charge us. So, excellent service on their end. The mattress was awesome! It was one of the very rare times where...

This motel in known for a friendly staff, clean rooms and very good breakfast selection. Even though the rooms are older, they have been upgraded and modernized to exceed that standards of many newer motels in town. I was surprised when the nice lady offered to fry an egg to my specification.
