Whispering Sands Motel

Reviewed 14 September 2017

After a long day riding my motorcycle from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and visiting Monument Valley, Gooseneck State Park, Natural Bridges and mastering the Moki Dugout, I was just ready for any place to rest.
What I did not expect was such a lovingly run place in the middle of nowhere. Check in was super fast and friendly. I got a ground floor room with an asphalt parking space right in front of the door. Great for motorcycles and not a given in a region where many parking spaces are just gravel. The room was clean, relatively spacious and lovingly decorated. Coffee maker, fridge, microwave and free WiFi. There was even a piece of candy on the pillows.
A basket with continental breakfast (granola bars, English muffins, fruit) was waiting on the fridge. Perfect for an early start.
All in all a great place to spend the night for then weary traveler. Highly recommended.

Clean and comfortable once again. Very easy to find. Great place to stop near Moab or Lake Powell. Will be stopping here again. Near gas and food. Shower head puts out a lot of pressure and AC works great.

We have stayed many times at the Whispering Sands Motel on the way to Lake Powell. The rooms are clean and well appointed. This stay I tried for 3 days to make reservations via phone or email. No response from anyone. I ended up making reservations online and paying for 3 rooms for all of the families on the trip. That was not my preference. When we arrived the receptionist was VERY cool and barely said anything during our check in process. Disappointing customer service but a good night's sleep.

After a long day of driving we arrived at The Whispering Sands Motel.
Reception was very friendly and fast.
We reserved 2 cabin rooms: very easy access (car in front of the door) and nice cosy rooms.
Surprise to find a small complimentary breakfast and 2 bottles of water in the room.
When in the area, I would defenitely return
