“Good value, close to Capitol Reef”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2010

Hosts seem a bit qeer at first, but are friendly never the less (given the fact they live in the middle of nowhere, they are pretty normal i guess).
Rooms/equipement is a bit dated but generally in working order (WiFi is fast!). Nice pool. Few dining options in reach (Hanksville or Torrey...)

We usually stay in moderately-priced places and may have stayed in a Rodeway Inn before, but I'm not sure. When we were making our reservations, I recall that this was Caineville's only motel. Wasn't sure what to expect but upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the room and cleanliness of the place in general. In the morning, the woman in charge of the front office (possibly the owner) was very personable and interested in making our breakfast experience a nice one. Will stay again if ever in Caineville again and would certainly recommend for visitors to Capital Reef National Park (to which the location is very convenient). Incidentally, on the rest of our trip we noticed another Rodeway Inn or two which from the street looked inferior to this one.

My husband and I and another couple stayed here. The hotel manager, Barbie, is the best!! She is personable and so very helpful! The rooms were clean and the breakfast was wonderful. I would encourage anyone traveling this way to stop here and enjoy the hospitality. There are hummingbird feeders hanging and you can enjoy the little birds coming to get their meal. There is also a hot tub that is the bomb!! We four had such a great time soaking in it. Also there is a pool but we did not get in it. The hot tub was all we we needed. Both were clean. It is obvious that this motel is well kept and the proprietors are responsible people. STAY HERE!!!

If you are expecting a classy hotel with all the modern luxuries then this hotel is not for you. However, if you want to see the beauty of central Utah and not be around tons of people than this hotel is great. Remember there is no cell phone coverage at this hotel which actually was real nice

They only have 16 rooms and the one we stayed it was just as good as other choice hotels we stayed at. It is not as modern but that is a good part of this hotel. I do recommend bringing your own food or eat in Torrey or Hanksville before you arrive.

The manager is not wearing a business suit but he was dressed ok especially since business is relatively light (only 16 rooms an off season).

The waffles are great! Location is great if you are visiting the National Parks in central Utah. Everyone should visit the Capital Reef National Park area before it becomes too developed.

I just stayed one night and arrived after dark. The gentleman who handled the check in was dressed in a tank top, which I found a bit odd, but otherwise the hotel was perfectly fine and my room was huge. I think it even had a microwave, but if you want to cook something you better do your shopping already in Hanksville, since there is nothing else in Caineville besides the hotel. There also was a small swimming pool but it was closed for the season.

My husband an I stayed at this hotel for one night and that was one night too long.

When we arrived around 7 PM we noticed an older lady waving at us from behind a window. We thought she ran the place, but that was not the case. The manager was a shabby looking guy who looked like Onslow from the famous British TV series Keeping Up Appearances. Other guests who checked in not too long before us, told us that he had been taking a nap and they found him somewhat grumpy. To us on the other hand he was friendly, perhaps a bit hard to understand, and he was happy to provide us with info about nearby restaurants (not that there are that many options by the way: you either have to drive to Hanksville or Torrey).

We got a room on the first floor and at first glance it looked okay, although the chairs were very stained. Boy, was I mistaken. There also was a hole in the bedspread and we had cobwebs and small spiders in our room. The room had obviously not been cleaned (including bathroom) thoroughly in a long long time. In the morning we also found out that we had little creatures running around in (mainly) our bathroom: woodlice. We also found one in our bed (yes, I am positive it was NOT a bed bug).
We overheard another couple complaining about the woodlice to the manager just outside our room. We eavesdropped: he admitted that the first floor rooms had this problem. He did offer the couple to use the bathroom of one of the second floor rooms, but I got the feeling he did not take this problem very seriously after all.

My husband and I were quite desperate to leave the place. The hotel offered a complimentary breakfast but as the hotel was so filthy we decided to skip it and left. By the way, the pool was closed.

Me and my travel partner checked in to the Rodeway Inn pretty late after a visit to Capitol Reef NP, and had to ring a bell for the owner to come from one of the rooms to come check us in. It was a speedy check-in but the owner was not very presentable. Our room was on the second floor (although we requested ground level). The room itself was very clean, but very plain and average looking. The best were very soft and not the most comfortable ones. The rooms were very quiet though (since it was located in the middle of nowhere). Wi-Fi worked flawlessly and we were able to use the internet at a very reasonable speed.
The hotel/motel offered cont. breakfast in the morning and it was suprisingly satisfying. We were able to make our own waffles which were delicious.
I would recommend this place if you are travelling from Capitol Reef to e.g. Moab.
