The motel is in a great spot, close to Capitol Reef, the reason for our visit. The views from the motel are stunning. The breakfast was simple but perfect for us and the room was nice. There were some good places to eat nearby, so that's also a big plus.

We stayed in Torrey for one night during our road trip. At first we had some trouble finding the motel. It's located behind another hotel, so we kinda missed it. The motel has a stunning view on capitol reef! So lovely! The guy in the office was really nice to us and he was really helpful in explaining everything about... More

The name had been changed to affordable. The views are amazing!! Only a handful of motels down there have the views like this place has and this place by far had the better rooms.(but all the motels down there are not that fantastic) The rooms are comfortable. The bedding I could do without. (older bedspreads) The staff is awesome and... More

First off, the name of the place has been changed to Affordable Inn. It is no longer Howard Johnson. It is behind a Mexican restaurant on the main road. Along with about half a dozen motels, this area is a little away from Torrey town. So it’s a few miles from most restaurants. But it’s a little closer to Capitol... More

Be careful when making reservations because it is listed as a Howard Johnson but are in the process of changing their name to Affordable Inn. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere nestled in between some mountains, a very pretty setting. Twice we had to wait for someone to come to the front desk because there were out back... More

When we stayed here last September it was called Howard Johnson Capitol Reef Motel. We had trouble finding the motel as it was set back from the road hidden by the Mexican Restaurant. It was a lovely motel a few miles out of Torrey. We were given a spacious room with two Queen Sized beds, desk, table, coffee making facilities... More

Location of this motel is very good as it's only a couple of miles from Capitol Reef. There are not many restaurants or stores in the area, but this is due to the general location and not the location of the motel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi worked and it was okay. The rooms were in good shape and... More

This is now the Affordable Inn. The rates are reasonable and the rooms are very big and very clean! We planned on staying one night but ended up staying three nights. The hotel is located about two miles from town on the highway into Capitol Reef National Park which makes it very quiet. Our room was in the rear of... More

There was nothing wrong with this motel, but it was nothing special..... our room was quite dark but clean and comfortable and well equipped with a fridge, microwave etc.. It is located on the road between Torrey and the Capitol Reef National Park. We ate at the Mexican restaurant on the adjacent site next to the petrol station - a... More

First, a clarification of what this place is. It's now an Affordable Inn, which is a small chain of 6 hotels, the rest of them all in Colorado. However, as of this writing the hotel erroneously still appears on Howard Johnson's website. (Yet if you try to book a stay from there, you can't.) Even more oddly, the hotel is... More
