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

I had received an email telling me they changed to being Affordable Inn, so that was the sign I was searching for. Nope. Not there. I noticed a small Howard Johnson sign and that turned out to be the place. We got signed in and went to our room. The key wouldn't work. Back to the desk. Second key didn't... More

We booked this hotel through booking.com and had to do some detective work to find that it's really a Howard Johnson's. The room and bed were acceptable, but nothing special. Got in pretty late (after 10pm) and found that many other people were active outside of their rooms. Bookings didn't indicate that the room had a fridge or microwave, but... More

A good base for the start of our drive on Scenic Byway 12. The receptionist was both helpful and polite. Rooms were well equipped and the furnishing was good. We had a lovely view over the mountains. In a quiet location, but there is a restaurant a very short walk away. The continental breakfast was good. Pity about the name... More

Exterior is not very different from any other "motel" but the rooms are excellent on the interior. Very modern throughout and very clean. Quiet and a good nights sleep. Wifi was very good. Attached restaurant was OK b.ut not great. Restaurant probably a bit overpriced for what you get. I ordered the Chinese food and it was bland at best.

We booked the Affordable Inn on Booking.com and lucky that I looked at the picture because there is no sign for Affordable Inn, it is the Howard Johnson. It is located between mile 70 and 71 on highway 24 east of Torrey Utah about 2 miles. It is a great location to Capital reef, clean room and a decent breakfast... More
