Stayed 1 night in early September 2014. Hanksville is quite a unique spot with character and this motel has a character that fits the remote location. The motel owner greeted me when I checked in and gave me all the info I needed (such as getting a discount at restaurant opposite if I mentioned that I was staying at the...

Ok...the place is old. There are some patches & hard water stains on the bathroom walls,but guess what? The rooms are clean,linens fresh, and there's a fridge, microwave,& TV. Fire pits and deck are a nice addition. What this motel lacks in genteel ambience,it makes up for in character. Add to that a 10% discount at the great steakhouse across...

Don't be put off by the rustic sign or the tattered chairs outside the rooms. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and incredibly friendly. The staff treated us like family. An excellent value. We would go out of our way to stay there again. There are plenty of soulless, characterless motels in America and fortunately Hanksville Inn is NOT one of...

The Hanksville Inn is a wonderful family run joint that has been completely rebuilt by Ed, the current owner. The first year he owned the property a flood hit and as the lowest point in all of Hanksville, the inn took two feet of water all throughout. Since then, Ed has repainted, reupholstered, rewired, and installed new bathrooms in every...

My husband and I have been traveling cross country and this hotel was the worst in our 3 month trip. Stay at the other motel, whispering sands? if possible. There are only two in Hanksville, and nothing else for miles. We wished we would have camped but it was too cold. No updating can save this motel, it needs to...

We've been traveling around CO, WY, ID, UT, AZ and NM. We've stayed in a mix of mom and pops and places like Hilton Garden Inn and B & B's. This is not the worse mom and pop we've stayed in and with only two to choose from, you can't be too picky. Room larger than expected but most certainly...

Not the best, but there's not much to choose here. The place was smelling not very clean and flies where everywhere. Overprised old Inn, but with a friendly staff. An old rocker with long hair, but very friendly. We survived, so will you.

Where to begin... how about a few positive items? Staff was friendly. Hot water was hot. AC was cold... sort of, but noisy. 10% discount on food at the restaurant across the street. That's about it. We arrived on a rainy night. We checked in and got a key... an actual metal key... not one of those plastic magnetic cards....

We were the mercy of the flooding in CO and chose to stop rather than back track and go 200 miles out of our way. With only 2 choices...and the other one with a NO Vacancy sign we were stuck. Our room was over priced from what we'd experienced in our 18 days on the road...but location and desperation forced...

the rooms were very clean an comfortable. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Place is old but rooms have been updated. Outside area could be cleaned up of broken down machines,. but looks like an old movie set! The Steakhouse across street was great. Check out the hand painted tees on sale in motel office.
