Dinosaur Inn & Suites in Vernal is a locally owned motel and it's awesome! The rooms have been recently remodeled! I love motels. I love being able to drive up to my room and have a little bit more fresh air! While I love hotels too, I think my heart truly loves the vintage vibe of a motel.
Dinosaur Inn is even more special because of all the dinosaurs! The vintage dinosaur sign has been there for three generations. You can find subtle hints of dinosaurs everywhere. I loved how ALL the flower baskets were held with dinosaur holders.
At the front desk your kids can go and pick their own tiny dinosaur toy. (WAY to earn extra points with the parents!)
We stayed in the double queen room. There was plenty of space to put two pack and plays and all our stuff in the room.
We got to Vernal late but that didn’t stop the kids from jumping in the pool for an hour.
We’ve missed outdoor pools!
What makes Dinosaur Inn & Hotel special is that the owners are a family and they make breakfast everyday.
They’ll even cook you an egg however you want. Honestly, it was amazing service.
I love motels because they are literally so much more airy and spacious feeling! Plus, Dinosaur Inn is literally right in the middle of town. We walked to dinner every day and even walked to all the museums nearby! Check out more on our Downtown Vernal post!
We literally left our doors open and the kids ran around going from room to room.
Plus it was cooler weather so we could leave them open to let in the breeze.
The pool has been recently refinished too!
The 3' deep section is pretty large so the kids were able to swim more than they normally would.
We loved our visit to Vernal's Dinosaur Inn & Suites! Centrally located and such a cute vibe! Don't forget, enter our Vernal Staycation to win your own family trip!
