After reading other's reviews about the exterior, I was pleasantly surprised. Though it is obviously an older hotel with exterior room access, I actually thought they'd done a pretty good job of "nice-ing" it up. My reservation about the place didn't start until we entered the lobby which smelled of stale smoke. HOWEVER.....we found the rooms to be very clean,...

This is a reasonably good place to stay and is relatively close to the park. You get a nice scenic view. Front desk is a little hectic. My only con is that their morning coffee is barely worth drinking, for those who care about such ... get coffee in town in the espresso joint, it's 200% better.

Nice view. Clean rooms with brand new mattresses. It's not a "resort" like you might expect, but pretty nice rooms for just a few bucks more than the other choices in Torrey. They are putting in 'glamping' teepees to open next month. It was 42 degrees when we pulled in so we didn't use the pool, but would have used...

We paid almost twice what other hotels in the area charged expecting a Resort. We knew the weather was going to be rainy and figured the 'resort' would have some fun things to do if our hiking plans were rained out. What we found was a motel. The pool is NOTHING close to what the cover photo here on Trip...

Torrey is a small town with small town hotels. This hotel had nice rooms but it's definitely not a resort and the main photo of the pool used as their 'cover' photo is misleading. (I knew to expect this from reading other tripadvisor reviews.) I've attached a few photos so others aren't surprised when they pull up or see the...

Nice room until you realize you can hear every plumbing sound and footstep in the building! The noise was awful....no sound insulation, or so it seemed. Room 117 is NOISY. Nice view spoiled by construction junk.

Charged two nights on my credit card when only stayed one. Despite an email to the property and Facebook post I have not received a response. I booked a king view room which did not look like the pictures on the Internet, must have been one of the older rooms.

We weren't sure what to expect, but found this hotel to be very clean and roomy. The wifi in the wing we were in was weak, so we could only connect in the lobby, but it is being worked on. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. We had an unexpected snowfall, and they helped us determine road...

We stayed here for one night. The staff was very accommodating. From the outside it doesn't quite look like the photos on the tripadvisor website. That said, the rooms were very comfortable and cozy.

Quick trip after visiting the area. The room was a nice size and very clean. Bathroom is a bit small and the heater/air conditioning unit is loud but otherwise a great stay. Ask for a room facing the back for a beautiful view.
