We stayed two nights while visiting Capitol reef. We loved being close to the park but the room was dirty. Looking on the positive side it was dirt/dust dirty, no bugs or hairs. It appears they clean the rooms/bathrooms but not under things (like the beds or next to the fridge). I let my 10 month old crawl around and... More

Our search for lodging near Capitol Reef yielded this hotel; it met our needs: it provided a place for my family to stay while touring the area, but it really just had an overall run-down feeling. There was nothing overtly wrong with it, but enough small things added up to make it a "meh" location. Here's the list of one-off's... More

The trip advisor reviews made us a bit leery of this place, but it was perfectly fine. The view of Capital Reef National Park and the stars were terrific .The king bed room had a microwave and refrigerator and was fine for the two of us and our 50 pound dog. There was a place in the back of the... More

I stopped in at this motel on a Thursday while in Torrey, and needed to reserve a room for the following Sunday. Spoke with wonderful Lorelei who helps out at this motel (tho works at another), and she made a reservation for me. I really wanted to stay here for the view and tho she said she wouldn't be there...

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay here and our beautiful views. As far as my actions coming across as rude, I am sorry you perceived me that way. Our check in time is 3pm and when you first arrived at 12pm our housekeeper had not at the time finished cleaning all of the rooms... More

I booked four nights here, due in part to the reviews. The room was nice enough and the bed was comfortable but there was absolutely zero service at this location. I had to call to get someone to check me in. After that, I saw a maid twice and a desk person once in my entire stay. In fact, I... More

They had my reservation wrong, but luckily they had the correct rooms available. It is a pretty run down hotel and is in need of updating. The lobby looked terrible. There isn't any nice hotels in the area, so this was the best rated hotel. The breakfast was minimal, no hot food. I only saw one employee there the whole... More

All in all, a pleasant experience. A bit of trouble finding it, more on that later. Once I checked it, I was more that satisfied with the room. Everything was in order, about what I expected, but an excellent price. The furnishings were all in good condition, very minor wear. Absolutely everything was in good working order. TV, cable, refrigerator,... More

My family stayed here off season, and found it to be charming. The staff were all courteous and personable, the prices were excellent, the view breathtaking and the room clean and quiet despite neighbors on all sides. If possible, try to get a room on the back side of the hotel, as the view is, as aforementioned, breathtakingly beautiful. Just... More
