Owners at both establishments have been very friendly and quick to respond to any inquiries I've had about the area.
When are you going on your trip perhaps I can give you more information upon our return.
Same as lrgardener - I am not an expert since I have not been there. I booked my room at Austin's Chuckwagon Motel. They were very reasonable. They have a website - www.austinschuckwagonmotel.com The place appealed to me because their response was quick when I emailed and Randy Austin was very pleasant in his response. The property has a store with a deli and a bakery which was a plus. I figured that would make it easier for me to get food for lunch to take in with me into Capitol Reef. I will only be in Capitol Reef for one day so managing time and have this added convenience seemed to be a positive when I was looking up places to stay in Torrey. Hope this helps.
I stayed at the Boulder View motel in Torrey; reasonably priced, nice view, and very clean.
There is a well regarded restaurant, Cafe Diablo nearby.
I also stayed at the Recapture Lodge in Bluff. Older but charming place ... a throwback to when I was a kid on vacation w/my parents in the '70's. Bluff has a couple of good restaurants too ... can't remeber the name of the one I really like; just remember the it was at the main intersection in town.
Medicine Hat is closer to Monument Valley than Bluff is this matters to you.
