We stayed in Canyons B&B and were very happy with our stay. The owners, Cate & Phil, are very nice. The rooms are new construction that were added to the original house. I haven't stayed at Torrey Pines so I can't compare.
We have eaten at both Hell's Backbone and Cafe Diablo and preferred Hell's Backbone. Both are very good though.
We stayed at Canyons - very nice. I'd go for Cafe Diablo over Hells Backbone - better atmosphere, better food, larger portions.
We have stayed at Canyons B&B in Escalante many times, Cate & Phil go out of their way to make every stay so enjoyable.
We did not have a great experience at Hell's Backbone, but enjoyed dinner at Cafe Diablo.
Make sure to stop at Kiva Koffeehouse (halfway between Escalante & Boulder) for coffee, breakfast or lunch along the way - the view down the canyon is amazing!
