I've never seen a bigger motel room! Great for rambunctious kids and lots of luggage and they have an indoor pool! Yahoo! Cute older couple at the desk answered all our questions and were very accommodating to our group. They also sell a few groceries and snacks which is great since there's not much else in Bicknell.

This is a budget motel down in the Utah Canyon lands offering a very large, clean room with a good bath/shower, plenty of hot water, free wifi and cable TV, coffee maker, fridge and microwave. The property is older but that sort of adds to the experience. Charming man checked us in, highly recommend it if you find yourself down... More

The motel is really "mom & pop" owned and operated, and they keep it in good shape. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The layout is a little unusual with the vanity in a separate room from the shower and toilet, but that worked out fine. Wi-Fi was good. It wasn't working when I arrived but the owner reset his...

There are goods and bads about this hotel. It is old fashioned and simple, with basic furniture dat is outdated but not worn. The bed was wonderful! I loved the soft blankets, it was like sleeping on a big teddy bear. We experienced some issues though. The water pressure was not so good, it was impossible to rinse shampoo out... More

The room was clean and comfortable, with fridge and microwave. Large indoor pool/spa. Laundry facilities. Breakfast is not provided. The owners are friendly and helpful. There is not very much in Bicknell, the two restaurants were both closed and there are no shops. You have to travel 14 miles down the road to find cafes, restaurants and a privately owned... More

Very spacious room near to Capitol Reef NP. Good value for money. Pool looked very good but did not get chance to use it. Fridge and microwave in room. Restaurant advertised on website (one of the reasons we chose this hotel) but this was not open either evening or morning in early Sept so had to drive elsewhere for dinner... More

spent two nights in this hotel while exploring capitol reef. upon arrival found the room extremely spacious, impeccably clean and functional - very good quality and comfort for the price! on the second night while in bed spotted a tiny orange-brown bug crawling right beside my face... googled on my tablet (wifi worked great) and to my horror it was...

All lodging hospitality owners dread this happening. No one is exempt from this little bug that likes to travel. They can hitch a ride with any one and move to the next establishment. We are educated about this problem and do take care of it promptly. More

Loved the price very reasonable, well worth driving the few miles from Torrey to save $20 a night. Emil was very nice at check-in and offered to open the pool for me, it was late so I declined but it was a nice gesture. The room was large, like 30% larger than my last room. I stayed in the rooms... More

When all the hotels in a small town are sold out and there is a limited selection, one's hopes are not terribly high! We were, however, pleasantly surprised! The owner was delightful. The rooms were HUGE and clean, the pool and hottub was heated and warm. The beds were also very comfortable! Another pleasant surprise was the 7000 dvd\vhs rental... More

We stayed here while visiting Capitol Reef National Park. It is around 15 miles to Capitol Reef from the hotel. It is a very simple, older hotel, nothing fancy but it was very clean, the room was really big, had a nice pool, and other extras. The owners were friendly and helpful. It was a great value and we would... More
