We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations and price considering Hanksville is in the middle of nowhere. The room was spacious,clean and cared for. A laundry room is available. Although the place seemed full last night, there was no noise.

Comfy bed. Clean room. Good shower. Friendly staff. Reasonable price. Unexpected extras like snacks and toiletries were icing on the cake. If you are planning a trip to this part of Utah for any of the great outdoor activities, this is a great place to stay.

My wife checked out this motel on Trip Advisor it was highly rated so we booked it for two nights. First the bed was very comfortable and the area was quiet. The room was large and very clean. I didn't expect toiletries but they were included. All in all a wonderful find in a remote area. Best place to eat...

I found this little gem on trip advisor. It had good reviews. So happy I booked this hotel. The outside of the hotel looks well maintained, almost new. Checkin was fast. We stayed in the side cabins. Inside the room we were pleasantly surprised. Very clean all the amenities you need. Even a small personal inroom continental breakfast. Quite too!...

I stayed here last year and wanted to come to the area and stay again. Still a very good rate considering Utah! Stayed two nights so I could drive to Bullfrog Marina on route 276 (turnoff was maybe 20 miles south of Hanksville) which just blew me away with its beauty last year. HAD to see it again. The marina...

The coolness of our room was a paradise after a day of hiking in the heat !! It was comfortable, and quiet. We would have appreciated if there had been a pool,this is the only thing that was missing !! Other than that, a great stay in Hanksville

The price was great, the rooms were clean and comfortable. There is no breakfast option. Very interesting set-up with a main motel and then a line of buildings that look like Tuff Sheds stretching out to the side. We stayed in one of the Tuff Shed buildings. My son did slip and fall in the shower and get hurt, although...

We stayed here one night after a week's outdoor activities in Colorado and spending the last night to view Goblin Valley and Capitol Reef before we head for home. The motel was an easy access from the highway. It was clean and comfortable with basic amenities but without breakfast. The good thing about this place was no pets were allowed...

We spent two nights at the Whispering Sands Motel in March for a family vacation. Although not fancy, our room was very clean and comfortable, and the rate was great. The various amenities offered worked as expected, and though the hotel was full our last night there, our room always felt quiet and private. The Whispering Sands made a great...

Spent one night here when passing through the area while I was on vacation for outdoor activities. No reservation but no problem getting a room. The room was basic: queen bed that was comfortable but the pillows are hard; desk and chair; small loveseat; in-room coffee; microwave and fridge. Non-smoking. Quiet. There is a laundry room. Cafe across the street....
