“Good Stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

We spent two nights here and were happy with our choice. The room was clean and very quiet. The only issue we had was with the water temp in the shower. It cycled from Hot to cold to ok. They provide a complementary hot breakfast which was very good. It's location is close to the entrance of the park.

My wife and I get out west twice a year. We love being outdoors and seek comfortable places to stay while hiking etc. The Spur was very good-large clean rooms along with a real hot breakfast included. The family that runs the Spur are great-friendly is an understatement. We stayed for 3 nights-enjoyed our stay.

The catch word phrase for this hotel is 'pride of ownership'. From the owners all the way down to the staff, one gets the sense that they really care about the guest's experience. we stayed there 3 nights and got more than our money's worth. the room was clean, spacious and had all the amenities and more than one would expect in this price range. The free breakfast was outstanding and served with a smile. The owner even gave us a great tip on what to see on the way home. We will definitely be coming back.

We booked a one night stay here at very short notice and were very pleased with the location and the size and cleanliness of the rooms. The staff were very helpful and pleasant and we could happily have stayed here longer.
The complimentary breakfast was rather basic but adequate.

When I made reservations at the Broken Spur I did so on the basis of the #1 rating. You need to understand that it is #1 in Torrey.. which is a very small town which perhaps just doesn't have any exceptional motel/hotels. It was a throw back to the 60's. It was certainly adequate, but having been built some time ago-the walls are pretty thin.. my suitcase (which was sitting on the dresser) rattled when they turned on the shower in the room next door. The place needs a little bit of work on the outside-- wrought iron railings need some paint, etc. The free breakfast was about a C-, very unexciting. HOWEVER-- our stay was fine. I am not sorry that we stayed there-- it was clean and neat and it was adequate for our needs as a short stop-over while seeing beautiful southern Utah. The view was lovely and the people who served us were exceptionally nice and attentive.

Thank you so much for your honest review. We appreciate feedback from our guests. We apologize for the rattling of the suitcase. I don't think it was the shower next door, it was probably the washer in our washroom. We try to finish up the laundry before guests come and not to start too early in the morning, but a lot of laundry requires lots of hours and our washer being so large does cause some rattling. Sorry! We also realize the wrought iron railing needs painting - again! We have actually painted all summer, but it is hard to stay ahead of guests and weather. It rained so much the last of August and first of September that it caused a lot of rusting. Believe it or not we work on it non-stop. Our free breakfast was actually a trial run. We didn't start it until the 12th of August. Before that you had to buy breakfast in the restaurant. We decided to try it, but because we have a restaurant we are not set-up for continental breakfast. We certainly want our guests to be satisfied. The main thing is to just tell us you need more or would like something different. We are still trying to decided what to do for next season so we appreciate your comments. We are glad your room was clean and that you were treated well. That really is our main goal - to make people feel welcome. We would love to have you come back - and hopefully the railing will look better when you come. Thanks!

This family owned spot has all you need. Nice clean rooms, well maintained. Nice views all around. The motel has a steak house attached. Owners have done a nice job of decorating for Halloween. Come to this place as the owners have been hurt by the National Park closings. We paid $82 for the room (plus taxes) which included a hot breakfast.

Room Tip: They have a pool and a conference center.

We appreciate your staying with us as the shutdown did hurt us as it did all the business owners in the state. This year we celebrated our first annual scarecrow festival throughout our county. The scarecrows were fun and made the month of October festive. We hope you enjoyed our steakhouse which is closed for the season, but we will be open again in March. Thank you and we hope you can visit us again.

The owners are so nice. They bought the place that had been sitting vacant for two years and totally refurbished it. We had a big room with a king bed and a HUGE jacuzzi -- and stunning views of the red cliffs. Not clear what place the crabby sunlovinlady stayed in -- our room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was terrific. Great local place.
