This property looks tired. I don't think the manager makes it a priority to do upkeep maintenance. But it served our purpose and we had no problems. There is no elevator, so we had to schlep our suitcases up the stairs. The coffeemaker in our room did not work. Breakfast was cereal, breads, coffee, juice. The advantage of this motel... More

It was just okay. No better than other low priced chains. The breakfast was very simple! Cereal, toast, no decaf. Not much to rave about. It served its purpose. Would I stay at this chain? Not sure! Only if I don't have many choices.

Nice little stopover point on our way towards Colorado We had just spent the day driving and checking out some of Bryce Canyon and this motel served its purpose of a comfortable bed for a good nights sleep. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the sun set over the mountains. Lovely little views. Room was clean, spacious and bed good... More

The hotel needs some tender loving care. It has become run down. Lobby and reception area are nice. The room was clean. Location is close to the national park, a gas station and a Mexican restaurant. Front desk manager was very pleasant and helpful.Good for an overnight stop.

The Affordable Inn is located near Capitol Reef National Park so location wise it was perfectly situated for our needs. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean - so no issue there. The walls are a little thin but all we did in the room was sleep and that was after some fairly long hikes during the day... More

The motel was difficult to find only because it is behind a Mexican restaurant and gas station just off of Highway 12. The price was reasonable. The room was a good size and was clean. The bed was comfortable. Staff ok. It is pet friendly. Continental breakfast served.

This property has the potential to be something really great unfortunately it is not. The rooms have beds that are horrible (you roll into the middle), the curtain rod was broken, and the furniture was old, dated and beat up and the sink in the room took forever to drain. Around the property there are light fixtures broken, a pool... More

during our stay, the hotel manager was overwhelmed due to being short-handed (the breakfast person simply failed to show up, for example), so we have to make a few allowances for our experience. however, there were some things in the room (like the shower bar) that had been broken and the repair was just a jury-rigged attempt to fix it...

Very disappointing. Run down, tired, old motel. Dead and dying landscaping. A dry, abandoned swimming pool off to the side, "protected" by a falling down fence is a dangerous eyesore. A/C in the room was erratic, would run for a few minutes, then shut down. When I tried to report the A/C issue, the desk was temporarily "closed". Luckily the... More

We didn't end up staying at this property. We didn't receive a confirmation from the hotel. When we got close, we called ahead, but no one answered the phone. We couldn't find the hotel in Torrey. Staff at Days Inn gave us directions and we finally located it at the end of a dark, dirt road. The office as well... More
