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

This motel was easy to find, and pretty well located, though out of "town" - if you call Torrey a town. When we arrived around 3 pm the parking lot was empty except for a pick-up truck. There was a note to call a particular number if you needed service, but when I called it, I got "the number you... More

This place is close to the entrance to Capital Reef National Park. It was less expensive than what I thought it would be considering its location. Decent place to stop for overnight. Breakfast was basic.

Disappointed that the room wasn't clean. Pretzel pieces everywhere on the carpets. Just lazy housekeeping overall. They should be ashamed of themselves for not doing what they're paid for. I hate 200 character review limits.

Bed was comfy and a nice view of the mountains. The room was outdated and ugly. It's basically just a truck stop with a motel. The pool was empty. Breakfast was just fair -- hard boiled eggs had a green ring around the yolk. Too far to the little bit of town that exists -- next time I'd opt for... More

This place is at the west entrance to Capital Reef National Park which is a beautiful park. If you call early and get on the NE side your scenery will be great. This place is a part of the Days Inn system so breakfast is basic but adequate. The motel is fairly new and is nice and clean. The place... More

We stayed one night here. I know it's maybe minor but at the end few details made me give only 2 stars to this lodge as I had to stay fair to the other lodges which were better. We arrived around 1pm knowing that it's not the time to check in but we were not expecting to hear that as... More
