Torrey, Utah, is to the west of Capitol Reef National Park. Many people visiting the park will stay at one of the many motels in Torrey. But if those places are full, this place on the east side of the Park is a great alternative. It is nearly as close to the Park action as from Torrey. And it is much closer to Goblin Valley State Park, an incredible place for kids to play among the hoodoos. This place is at mile marker 98.5 on highway 24 between Torrey and Hanksville. I agree with the folks who say that hot Hanksville (farther to the east on 24) is not an attractive place to stay. (Stan's Burger Barn is a fun place to eat, though, in Hanksville).
This place is in the small, sleepy, spread-out farming/ranching community of Caineville. It is now being managed by a very friendly and helpful family of 7 who live on the property and are taking great care of it. My initial reaction: plain, sparse, very clean. Good satellite TV coverage. Grandkids loved the pool. Complimentary breakfast is OK but nothing special. Very interesting topography -- like nothing you have seen before.More
