“Great view”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Our room was better than we expected. The beds were very comfortable with very soft pillows. Our room was very clean & seemed updated. The pool was small but clean with a million dollar view. Also the view from the rooms is pretty incredible, especially at sunset. We didn't eat at the restaurant so I can't comment on that. We'd definitely stay here again.

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

I paid a few bucks extra for an upgraded view room and was not disappointed. There is a large amount of turnover and traffic here and the room was in good shape despite this. The pool and grounds were nice also.

For the price, I would have hoped for a microwave and fridge. That said, there are no grocery stores in/near Torrey I could find. The ice machine did work and that's important when visiting here in the summer.

First time stay at this Best Western - what a winner! The red rock views from our private patio was a beautiful way to greet the day and watch the sunset. Pool and hot tub are very well maintained and clean. The hotel grounds are very nice. Rooms well insulated, no outside noise. Ample parking for our truck, trailer and motorcycle. Hotel restaurant is a dud - better options right across the street. Beds were very comfortable and pillows were okay but small for a King bed. Check out Robbers Roost for outstanding coffee, the Saddlery for steaks and live music, and the Rim Rock for a wonderful breakfast.

Spent a bit extra to have the balcony room, and it was very much worth it. This property is an upscale-ish motel with upgraded linens, spotless rooms and free wifi. The property does seem a bit older but is well maintained and we had a lovely stay for two nights. However, there's a decrepit tennis court that's completely unusable and run down that's quite an eyesore that should either be fixed or removed -- it's quite unattractive. The A/C is indeed a bit loud, but that's the norm in motel rooms that have been retrofitted. The room was large and had a fridge and a microwave. Great housekeeping service.

This part of Utah is one my favorite places to visit. My wife and our friends try to get through Torrey at least once a year on the Harley's. We always stay at the Best Western. The view and location is unbelievable. Especially at sun up and sun down. Rooms were clean and quiet. The restaurant was very good also. If you are in this area I would give this place a try. I am sure the other places in town are fine, but this place has just always worked for us.

The views at the back of this motel are stunning. Our rooms were clean and though not huge were well appointed. The restaurant attached to the motel did the best breakfast of anywhere we went and the service in there was very friendly. The motel is very well located for the park in a quiet location.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back to enjoy the fabulous view.
