Jim and Luann are the best hosts. They can send you out on incredible adventures, all over the Bears Ears...don't go anywhere else but here. My wife and I just got back from a 5-day trip, and it was perfect. We spent time in Natural Bridges; up on Comb Ridge; down into Road Canyon, just off of Cigarette Road; and...

I can't remember when I first stayed here, but ever since then I plan trips so as to include an overnight or more at the Recapture. This time (early March) the trails between the motel and the San Juan had been expanded, making it easy to walk to the river. Perfect way to stretch your legs after a long drive....

Wonderful place to stay, friendly staff, and explicit advice where to find ancient rock art, like this...don't miss this little treasure! Clean rooms, maps and info about the area, nice local flavor! Near the Colorado River, too, Bluff has amazing rock formations, good restaurants, too.

I've stayed here four times for starting and finishing San Juan River trips. The last stay, after a late arrival coming off the river, was like arriving in heaven. The desert heat was extreme, but the room was perfect. Everything was closed for meals as I had expected. The convenience store next door had what I needed, cold milk and...

Returning to Utah for us ment a return to this rustic, friendly, family run motel. We booked two rooms, once containing a kitchenette enabling us to...

My two brothers and I stayed in the double wide that Recapture owns near the hotel. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and plenty of room. It is furnished with 70's style furniture. The place is a real time warp. However, it is comfortable and relatively inexpensive. The wifi is not fast...at all. It is very quiet, has a...

3rd visit to Bluff and 2nd to the Recapture. Like coming home. Friendly, homey, informative and just overall a great little place. Breakfast comes with the room and the rooms are clean and quaint. Hosts are great! Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Bluff.

Have stayed here many times because the owner Jim Hook has a wealth of knowledge on the area to include the many ruin sites. With this info now available on the internet travelers can stay in more modern facilities. Recapture is an old style motel and the furnishings look like they have been there when it was built. It is...

We stayed only one night, but it was very pleasant. After a number of days hiking and camping in the Butler Wash area (Comb Ridge) we opted for a room with a shower and chose Recapture Lodge....very quiet, comfortable (lots of hot water!) and friendly. Don't think you will find a more friendly staff. There was plenty to eat for...

Stayed here to meet up with some friends to go on a hiking trip. The hotel was not modern but it was nice. Both my room and beds were comfortable and I enjoyed my stay. The room came with a microwave and fridge. The area and the others in the hotel were quiet so no complaints there. They did serve...
