Great base for visiting Capitol Reef NP A review of BEST WESTERN Capitol Reef Resort
We found this place excellent value with a family of 4 staying in one of the garden suites, which are in a separate building with a large garden for the use of those staying in the dozen or so rooms in the block. The views are fabulous in all directions and it's really easy to get to Capitol Reef - indeed the National Park could almost begin as soon as you drive east the landscape is so spectacular. The pool and hot tub are both really large and enjoy the magnificent views. Eating there was not very exciting but we had an excellent evening meal over the road at the Red Rim (?) just across the road, where the dining room takes full advantage of the 360 degree views available. The extraordinary bookstore, Robber's Roost, does marvellous coffee, as well as being an inspirational sort of place. (It's at the other end of Torrey). We were really pleased to have spent 2 days here and would have gladly stayed longer.
