Love this motel. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great prices. Beautiful remodeled kitchenette rooms. Very reasonable rates as well. Awesome flat screen TV. Free WiFi. Laundry room was very handy. Yummy breakfast in the mornings.

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. The owners are super sweet and accommodating, and the breakfast was a carbohydrate lover's dream (waffle maker, cereal, pastry, bread, bagels, coffee, juice). We will...

My wife and I took a weekend trip to Vernal to get away from the haze of Salt Lake City and visit Dinosaur National Monument.

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...

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...

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...
