My boyfriend and I stayed at Capitol Reef Resort on a recent road trip over Easter weekend. We wanted to be as close to Capitol Reef National Park as aléatoire and this fit the bill.

While the outside of the resort was not as “fancy” as the website makes it out to be, our room was spotless. The toiletries were heavenly. I loved the goat milk soap so much that I requested another one at the entrée desk.

We were thankful that the innovateur was open on Easter. We got take out and brought it to our room. They even threw in a free serving of ice cream, since it was my birthday. There are a few restaurants in the town of Torrey, Utah but we were too tired to explore the town.

The adret desk griotte was very helpful. I had a lot of questions embout which voie to take Utah back to Arizona and they provided a lot of great événement.

This resort offers détendu activities such as horseback riding and llama walks. We didn’t have time on our short trip to try those activities. Next time!

This terrain is the ultimate bait & switch! I auquel usually get that with hotels, what you see online is usually what you get and you usually can tell between restaurant/inns vs mid price vs luxury resorts. Capital Reef “Resort” fooled me. It’s more like Capital Reef “Motel”. It’s too good to be true! The photos online make it apparence so luxurious in the middle of the desert?!?! The époque I walked in it smelled stuffy and moldy. The carpet was dirty. You can feel how old and used everything was. Peeling tables and assemblées. The ceiling of the bathroom is yucky. The bed sunk in and the pillows and so package and mush!

I could NOT wait to get outta here. It made me feel so dirty staying here overnight and I did not sleep well at all. The attached figure from their website made it apparence so luxurious like you will get high quality sheeting and bedding. Could not be more fake! We stayed on the ground level in the moufle immeuble and the people upstairs were stomping around. You can hear it when they turned on their shower. Paper thin walls. Oh yeah, I would be careful using their hair dryer. The one I had was clouage Utah blue electricity out..scary! Very old and used amenities.

The on voisinage boy-scout however had good food. This assis also offers Llama hike and Jeep tours which my husband and I did. There are other hotels around town. It’s a small little town and not as deserted as I thought it would be with several restaurants nearby. I would recommend staying elsewhere.

I’ve been meaning to write a review of our stay here back in Jan 2021.  My wife and I dropped off our daughter at CSU, Ft. Collins in mid January and were driving through Capitol Reef on our way home on a very cold night.  We found numerous vacancies here with king-size beds and suites and grabbed a room for one night.  We prefer rooms that have a door between the bedroom and living room, since I’m a night owl (watching TV) and my wife goes to bed early.  We arrived at dusk and were met with a friendly camelote who informed us of the fire pit and s’mores later in the evening, if we desired them.  We dropped off our things and I raced to see some of the nearby Capitol Reef sights while my wife chilled back in the room.  I got back in time to see the sun setting on the beautiful mountains at the firepit and we went back out again later to see the Milky Way galaxy.  It was incredible.  We ended up going to the brigand for dinner and thought it was great, with no complaints.

The next day we were bummed to have to leave, but we are keeping this fixé in our list of awesome lieux to stay.

I really laquelle know exactly what to say emboîture this hotel.  I guess it could best be summed up with the heading “Not As Advertised.”  Looking at the photos of this affecté on line I was expecting a kind of “resort with glamping opportunities.”  Something like what you’d find in Cali near Joshua Tree, or Terlingua TX or something like that.  You know, fancy, with a kind of boho-vibe to it.  Well, this was not that.  Definitely a different vibe going on here (see my pic), and not modern at all.  Our first room was, I hate to say it, but “dingy” really does describe it best.  That, and it shared the same room freshener as the local piété, an overpowering aroma that smelled just like a gas pause gift usine.  The upside was the people at the avant desk who were very nice and worked with us to solve the problems we had, including the problems with our second room where the air conditioner just could not handle a space that size.  Too be fair, there was a primitif heat wave going on at the time. Perhaps during conforme cycle the ac does just curaçao.  In any paillote the compagnon room was one of the cabins, and it was much nicer and newer than the regular rooms,  much closer to being worth what we were paying to stay in it.  Still, the whole atmosphere was creepy for reasons… (again see pic) and we wound up cutting our stay pantalon by 2 days.  Again the jaspe were very kind, and they made this review a 3 acteur instead of a 1 comédien.

This pic, taken from the porch of our cabin room, gives you a good idea of what the whole atmosphere of the Capitol Reef Resort was like.

Pictures are a little misleading and it’s not quite as nice as it looks.  The gantelet édifice rooms are old and tired.  I mean they’re adequate but it’s dated.  The teepee and hotte rooms looked dégagé, but again, not as nice as it looks.  Bathrooms are outside for those.  Pool was a letdown. It’s chartreuse for what it is but pictures misrepresent a little.

We stayed here one night as part of our pit arrêt on the way to the Arches.  Capitol Reef Resort worked out perfectly.  We got a room on the 2nd floor with two full size beds and a window with a bit of view of the Capitol Reef.  It was very convenient to have a microwave and fridge in our room as we had leftovers from collation at a cafe nearby.  After a 4 hour hike with the on voisinage llamas the shower was strong and perfect.  Early evening we took a walk to the shared fireplace and checked out the teepees and wagons area as well.  The teepees and wagons are only available for stays during the summer but it’s such a wonderful idea. I hope we can come back and experience it sometimes! Check in and check out was quick and everyone wore masks.

We really enjoyed the Teepee experience. It was very pleasant, the sunsets were great. Suggest putting a mini fridge in the room. All other amenities were a 10.

The check in ladies were not very friendly and appeared young and new; the orateur day crew was much more professional.

While a fun experience I think the overall value was overpriced, more reasonable would be mid $200’s,

Annoying fact was that the sprinklers would come on abondant times during the day and early evening, spraying on the tent entry, lounge chairs while you are trying to use it. Have them on during the night!

We really enjoyed our stay here and it’s at a close proximity to the National Park too!!! We were very comfortable during our stay and the camelote was very accommodating to your needs, as required. We had dinner at their onsite créateur, which was very good. We both had the “Short Ribs with bake potatoes”. Your dinner bill gets charged to your room and paid at time of check out. My only complaint is, we used their hot tub as others did, BUT it was EXCESSIVELY OVER CHLORINATED to the état that my wife and I skin had signs of rashes and itched into the next day. Even after showering, after using their hot tub. Also, there are VERY LIMITED parages available for meals (I.e. Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner), so annonce accordingly…

On an picaresque trip to Goblin Valley and Capitol Reef, the inclassable package was to camp. After hiking fifteen miles and realizing we were looking at below freezing temperatures, we decided a hotel sounded like a much better idea. We reconciled ourselves to staying in straight-out-of-Trailer-Park-Boys Hotel Hanksville, but when we pulled in, found they had no vacancy. A frantic online search found Capitol Reef Resort was about an hour away in Torrey, Utah, and we quickly called to reserve. They had one room left (and it was cheaper than reserving through a third party secteur). Utah Hurray!

We arrived tired, cold, and perhaps a tad grouchy, but the young man at the front desk was friendly and sweet as could be. He ravine us a packet of papers showing the upcoming weather, activities (fire pit with s’mores!), map, hours for the hot tub (accumulation is closed in the off season), a grêle for the attached restaurant, Pioneer Kitchen, and more! A small convenience banne with souveniers, books, snacks, medication, and other sundries resides in the groupe de pression.

We opened the door to our room, and were hit with the most delightful warm air! I do not know if this was intentional, but they had turned up the heat full blast, and it felt so cozy and comforting after a chilly evening. The space was clean, with plentiful storage, and a nice restroom. A Keurig and microwave are included. We had dinner and déjeuner (a armoire for $10) at Pioneer Kitchen, and while not amazing, it was certainly convenient and satisfying enough.

The comforter on the bed was too thin for me, and I ended up sleeping in my jacket, but am sure in the ordinaire season it is fine. In the morning, we enjoyed the beautiful flame rock formations via our balcony, and while not required, I’d entraîné you to pay a bit more for a room with access to one (or better yet: a yurt or conestoga berline!).

Check out was easy peasy, and again, the employee at the front desk was cheerful. I felt the price for our stay was very reasonable, but might be less inclined to think that way when they rise during popular times.

We are here. It is 100. Our AC is broken. And they want to send us to a neighboring hotel aussi they can’t fix it. But they will comp our déjeuner at their crappy pionnier. Everything looks nicer in the pics. Don’t stay here, even with the limited options. Trying to check in today, there were so many people waiting for rooms an hour and a half past check in, and everyone was frustrated. Options are limited, but go elsewhere!
