Reviewed September 12, 2008

I'll keep this brief. We found this place by a billboard advertisement. We were tired and willing to take pretty much any open room. What we got was a lot more! A friendly couple (the owners) were working the front desk. There was a pool (we didn't partake) and our room had cable, good wi-fi, a fridge and a microwave. We arrived late, but the restaraunt next door (owned by the same owners) was open until 11pm and was VERY good. Everything seemed homemade. My fries were cut from fresh potatoes, and the chicken fingers didn't seem frozen. Even the dipping sauces seemed made from scratch. And the service was excellent.

So a VERY pleasant stay. Wish we weren't just driving through!

Was driving through and stopped on the offchance. It's convenient to the Capitol Reef NP, and is set in attractive surroundings with farmland next door. The only non-smoking room they had was a kitchenette, which was more than I needed, but very large. Although the fixtures were on the elderly side, it was clean, comfy, and the road is quiet at night, so good for sleeping. There is a large, smart conservatory-type indoor pool extension, and although I didn't have time to try it, judging by the happy sounds coming from other guests it was proving popular.

I ate at the diner next door, and was well looked after: clean and not expensive.

For the $50+tax I thought it was very good value, and would happily stay there again.

A relative of ours suggested the Aquarius Motel for our visit to Capitol Reef. They said that it was old, but clean. We were initially impressed with the friendly greeting, however the Kitchenette Suite did not live up to expectations. On the surface, it looked clean. However, we found that it wasn't very clean at all. We even found mouse poop in two of the three beds! When we brought this to the management's attention, only a half-hearted apology was given. If you owned a motel, wouldn't you at least offer another room or some other type of concession? We half expected them to at least offer a discount in the price when we checked out, but all they said was: "It sometimes happens!" Maybe management of this motel should double-check the rooms before the guests arrive? On the other hand, our kids did enjoy the pool.

Traveling in Autumn, 2004, my sister and I stayed here. We had a large room with 2 Queen beds, TV, frig., microwave, phone, one room with sink and another with toilet and shower. It was good value. But SKIP the Aquarius Cafe! It was awful. (See under restaurants)

We stayed at the Aquarius Motel a few days ago. The major problem was the room wasn't quite as clean as I would have liked. Didn't see any bugs or anything like that except for two gnats on my pillow under the spread. That was a turn off. The a/c fan was VERY loud. It is a very basic motel. We were in the newer annex. The room was large with a fridge. All in all, for the price, it was acceptable.

Very Reasonable rates for a large room. We stayed in the Deluxe Queen. It is a Very Large Room with TV/VCR/DVD with Fridge and Microwave. The kids enjoyed the clean Indoor Pool area. We were very impressed. We take road trips during the summers and we found this as an excellent stay. We will return for sure.
