The First thing that the young lady, that suppose to be the manager, said to me and my family was that there were cheaper hotels around and said we could not stay there and made us cancel the reservation we made with hotels.com. Then my sister tried to make a new reservation, but as soon as she saw us she...

Older motor court motel that has been very well maintained; American owned & operated. Super clean rooms, grounds & swimming pool. Absolutely no complaints. This was our 'home base' while we visited Canyonlands, Arches, Black Canyon and Blue Mesa. We WILL come back!

The place is clean, has breakfast, a pool, coffee, WiFi, a fridge and microwave in the room. Beds are comfy and tv has cable. The staff is friendly and gave a great dinner suggestion. I would recommend Wayside to others that are travelling and don't expect all the perks of a high end hotel. I would stay here again without...

Though their sign says they have the best rooms in town, I would disagree. We travel through town quite often on our way to visit family in New Mexico, and have stayed in most of the motels in town. We decided to give this one a try, but were disappointed. The good: the rooms are large, the bed was good,...

We stayed at this hotel and the staff is great. The bed was very comfortable and the room was really clean. We would stay here again. The breakfast was good. They had juice, milk, coffee, cereal, toast, pop tarts, hard boiled eggs, fruit, etc.

We made a last minute reservation at the Wayside Motor Inn traveling through Moab. It is a motel so it is expected to be a little dated but it was REMARKABLY CLEAN! The room included a mini fridge and microwave, ironing board and hair dryer, of course TV. The bed was comfortable. The motel offers a breakfast which consisted of...

Typical roadside motel. It was clean, dated, and budget friendly. We got to town around 10pm local time, so there wasn't much going on. All restaurants in Monticello were closed, we ate pre-prepared food at the Maverick truck stop. We slept fine, and had a complimentary breakfast in the morning.

We had a great experience at the Wayside Motor Inn in Monticello. I was concerned about the safety and cleanliness with such a reasonably priced motel. The room was clean. It was small and a bit outdated but CLEAN! The Inn was quiet and and I felt safe. The staff was kind and helpful. The only thing that could be...

I have to agree with the other reviews. Both the evening and morning young women at the check-in desk were barely civil. Signs in the room were worded rudely. The room had a strange smell. The bottom window didn't fit the frame and wasn't lockable, so there was a lot of dust and debris from the wind coming in until...

The outside temperature was in the upper 30s and the wall-mounted heater/air conditioner didn't work. Instead, there was a small space heater in the corner and it rattled when the fan came on. I requested another room; there was at least a dozen available. The woman at the desk (on the night shift) refused and told me that none of...
