My husband and I stayed here recently while visiting Capitol Reef N. P. I really liked many things about it. The rooms were nicely maintained and clean. Many toiletries were provided, and the view from the back of the hotel was nice. The staff was very courteous, and breakfast was provided. Breakfast was basic, but very adequate. Hotel was decorated for Halloween, which was a nice touch, including the "butler" by the front door with the Craisins. I was very pleased with everything here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place.

Great location near Capitol Reef N.P.. Room is clean and comfortable. I have allergy problems and the front desk person cheerfully came to my room and made sure the A/C(missing filters)was cleaned-up and filtered by the time she left. Other requests were met with equal professionalism and positiveness. Would definitely come again.

Room Tip: rooms in the back face a horse pasture. Lovely and peaceful.

A good motel, no problems or what so ever, but very little atmosphere and no character. Fast and clean.

The staff was helpful offering dinner suggestions. This is a relatively new simple motel where things work well. Hauling heavy luggage up to the top could be tough. The room was spotless and the tv works well. Mattress was a bit soft for my taste and the lobby is very nice.

Excellent choice for this area, and the room is good value for money. Front desk staff were courteous and efficient. Room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was decent, and they kept everything in stock until the end (when we showed up). Recommended if you are visiting the Capitol Reef area.

Room Tip: Away from parking lot where tour buses start up in the wee hours of the morning.

We stayed there one night, when visiting Capitol Reef. The hotel is located on the main road of Torrey , close to the heart of the town

Check in was great, we were welcome in a friendly manner. The hotel seems to be recently renovated. They had some interesting coffe table books that I enjoyed browsing The room was spacious and we got one facing the meadow with horses in it. Nice!

The Wifi connection worked fine.

Breakfast in the morning was nice - boiled eggs, fruit, bread, waffle maker to make fresh,hot waffles and coffee/tea.

I believe they have laundry and a pool.

My husband and I have just finished a five-day drive from Scottsdale, AZ to Park City, UT through some of the most beautiful landscapes to be found in this country. One of our days was from Kanab, UT to Torrey, UT via Bryce Canyon National Park and the mountains between it and Torrey. Fabulous! We picked the Red Sands Hotel through the TripAdvisor reviews. If we were to judge it by hotels found most places, it would get a "poor" rating, but Torrey is one of a string of really small towns and itself has only one internet tower (run by a local resident) where service drops out if the wind blows too much, and only one cell phone tower. Wonderful way to get away from it all, and an indication that this is an isolated area--even if it does boast a great hamburger stand ("Slackers") and a great coffee shop at the intersection of routes 12 and 24. At any rate, the room was perfectly adequate and the bed comfortable, but the pillows, towels and bed linens were not high quality. Why is it that so many hotels have such cheap pillows, and thin towels?! The breakfast was not at all appealing--we skipped it entirely and got muffins at the coffee shop. The people who worked at the hotel were very nice and the hotel was clean--a good spot for the night if your travels find you here at night, but don't expect much.
