Douglas at reception was so very accommodating...so glad we picked this hotel for an overnight stay! The views were outstanding, it was quiet, and the night sky put on a great performance. I would definitely recommend this stop!

We stayed here and loved it. Very affordable, clean and comfortable. Nice hiking and wildlife available right from your front door, and convenient location right between town and the national park up the road.

The hotel is recessed from the road and does not have good signage. We arrived after dark and drove past it. We had a little situation which was not the hotel's fault, and Matthew and Douglas were very helpful to resolve it. We got a very good rate and the beds were comfortable. Woke at sunrise to a nice view... More

We arrived about 30 minutes before 3 PM check-in and were able to get checked in. Unfortunately, our room was not ready until 4:15. There is only one person on the housekeeping staff for the entire motel - RIDICULOUS. Price was reasonable considering it's location to the park. The room was clean, beds comfortable, NO microwave (at least not in... More

This was the last place in town to have rooms available, and, according to the desk clerk, this was the usual state of affairs. Our room was functional, but not in top condition. The shower rod was broken, and when we were searching for a dropped item, we found a lot of food and trash bits under the beds. It... More

Pros: Excellent views from this hotel, very close to Capitol Reef NP, free in room Wi-Fi, inexpensive. Cons: Old, out-dated, beds are terrible, used to have a pool but not in use, "breakfast" is pathetic (just a few items were out) and no workers in sight. This hotel needs TLC.

We stayed here several days last summer and I was glad to come back. I don't understand why some people give this place unfavorable reviews. The rooms are large and clean. Rates are very reasonable. Yes, just a continental breakfast but everything looked fresh. The views are beautiful and there is a waterfall just a very short walk away. The... More

We got our room for around $71., so our expectations were set accordingly. The room was big, plenty of room to wiggle, and clean. The bathroom was tiny. Towels were dingy (I'm guessing because of all the red dirt around) and the bathtub faucet dripped and we were not able to stop it. Sad, considering water is scarce. The internet... More
