I needed a motel in Vernal, UT, and as I prefer the courtyard style so I can pull up to my door, I decided to try the Econolodge. It's outside doesn't give a clue of how nice the rooms are. The outside is nice, but typical older-style motel (which I prefer anyway). The desk clerk was very friendly and welcoming,...

To be honest, I have had major issues with Econo Lodge Hotels in the past. Because of the good Trip Advisor reviews I decided to stay here and was not disappointed. Older property, but newly updated. Very comfortable firm bed. Room was very clean and in good shape. Good location in the center of town. Cost was very reasonable, less...

We chose to stay here because it was free through the rewards program. Our room is very clean, updated room in an older building. The beds are comfortable. There is a micro/fridge combo as well as a 2 burner electric countertop range. I wished I had realized this ahead of time as I would have brought my own food rather...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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. At the time of...
