This was the second stay at this motel for me. The last was 3 years previous. The room I had this time had been recently spruced up with new bath/shower, toilet, tile, vanity, and carpet. The Wi-Fi worked fine. The staff was courteous and helpful. The bed was comfortable. The room, including the bathroom was very clean. I'll stay there...

We had a pleasant night at the Gateway but like another reviewer I noticed a pungent chemical smell on opening the door. Not sure if it outgassing from the vinyl wallcovering or someones idea of an air freshener. I opened the windows and turned the fan on, but I'm not sure it dissipated or we just grew used to it....

My family and I traveled to Blanding for a recent trip. This was our basecamp point for our travels to nearby National Parks. The room was clean which was appreciated after a 15 hour drive from our starting point. The AC worked great. We had the family suite which is two rooms in one. The king size bed was comfortable,...

Yes it is dated in decor and the exterior is not very aesthetically pleasing, but the room we were in (a two-room suite for a family of six) had new comfy mattresses, was very clean, and the A/C was great! The only drawback is the wi-fi only worked in one of the buildings and the breakfast is very very basic....

Couldn't find a room heading south out of Moab. Saw this, what a pleasant surprise. Clean, quiet, friendly. I had a room in the back. Impressed on how clean it was. I would definitely stay there again when passing through. Might even make it a base of operations for some local sight seeing.

Ok place to stay if you just need a place to crash. If I went back I would try another hotel just to compare. Not the most comfy beds. Bottom line, it's just ok. On second thought I'm not going back to Blanding. Really there is nothing there to go back for.

I enjoyed my single night stay here. Rooms were clean. King bed was massive (swear it was larger than a King). Lighting and decor was warm and friendly. Shower was STRONG, which is a great thing. A nice clean place to stay if you're touring through Utah. Traveller beware: Blanding is a dry municipality, so if you like your hotel...

I recently stayed in the suit above the main office. Throughout the night, the typical office sounds awoke me: bells ringing, phones ringing, conversations office staff were having on the phones or with people checking in/out. The only thing worse than that was the fact that the shower stall didn't really drain quickly, so within just a few (<5) minutes,...

Nothing fancy here. Just your basic motel room that is clean and where everything works. As a single it was $50 plus tax. Plenty of room. The wi-fi was not lightning fast, but very acceptable. Very good shower. TV reception had a touch of static, but worked for me. I've had better rooms. But if every motel room delivered the...

We looked in both Blanding & Monticello for this trip and found mediocre to poor reviews everywhere. With our AAA discount, this place was considerably less. I probably got what I paid for and guests at other hotels paid more but didn't get what they paid for. First the cons--the faucet dripped, the furnishings were old and chairs stained, the...
