by | May 14, 2023

The Chuckwagon Lodge is perhaps the best-kept secret in an already special town. Torrey, Utah is a destination for outdoor enthusiasts, families, thrill seekers, and more. Whether you’re planning to spend your time in nearby Capitol Reef National Park or are using our Torrey resort as a base camp to explore more of what Southern Utah has to offer, the Chuckwagon is always a great choice.

We think that our unique rooms, comfortable beds, and range of amenities are what set us apart—but don’t just take our word for it! Keep reading to learn what real guests had to say about their stay at our Torrey resort.

Location, Location, Location

Torrey, Utah’s unique location makes it a great spot for exploring many different parts of Southern Utah. But a stay in our Torrey resort wouldn’t be complete without some time in Capitol Reef. Most of our guests make their way to the national park at least a few times during their stay. All rave about our great location just 10 minutes from the entrance!

“Had a great stay at the Chuck Wagon Lodge. The location is great for visiting Capitol Reef National Park, about 10 minutes away. Room is clean and spacious (we got a king bed room). Having free coffee/tea at the lodge is a plus!” -Glibert Yang (Review via Google)

“Very nice lodgings in Torrey.  Capitol Reef NP is only 10 miles but great scenery from the lodge. Many dining choices nearby, including deli/bakery on premises.

Clean room, comfortable bed, nice tub/shower, micro and fridge.  Would stay again.” -Douglas Mead (Review via Google)

Great Amenities

Whether you want to cool off after a long afternoon of hiking or are looking to grab a snack before heading to the park, our Torrey resort has a range of amenities for you to enjoy.

“Located just outside Capitol Reef National Park, this is a great place to stay while seeing the park.  They have a store onsite that has just about everything you need.  The deli has great stuff for breakfast!  The pool was great as well.  My kids loved it here!  Torrey is a wonderful town!” -Greg Arnold (Review via Google)

“What a great find!  Of all the places we stayed near Utah parks, this was our favorite.  The shaded courtyard/pool area in front of the hotel is perhaps the prettiest and friendliest place in Torrey, especially when everyone’s getting dinner from the great, well-priced Capitol Burger truck.  Friendly staff eager to give local advice.  General Store has fabulous, inexpensive selection of food, beer, sandwiches to go, and FREE coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate for hotel guests.  Stay here rather than the other sterile hotel chains just outside town.” -Karin Klose (Review via Google)

Friendly Staff and Clean Rooms

After a long drive across Southern Utah, the last thing you want is to arrive at your Torrey resort to find a dirty room or unfriendly desk staff. But you won’t have to worry about either at the Chuckwagon Lodge.

“My fellow travelers and I had a wonderful experience. The room was clean and comfortable, staff was super friendly and helpful. There was a little store that sells basic groceries on site and a sort of trading post type shop directly across the street. And the area is absolutely beautiful!” -Lina (Review via Google)

“We absolutely loved Austin’s Chuck Wagon Motel. It was extremely clean, impeccable maintained. The large trees throughout the grounds made for beautiful relaxing areas to sit out front and enjoy the cool afternoon breezes. So beautiful. The restaurant serves great lunch. Nice pool and spa. This will be our go to locale for Capitol Reef.” -Don Cann (Review via Google)

“This place in Torrey was a real surprise.  It was immaculately clean and well kept.  We thought it was new but, in fact, it was 20 years old.  The bedding was fresh.  The bathroom was clean and the furniture looked new.  Definitely a good deal for the money.” -Elaine Lopez (Review via Google)

“We were on a long road trip on our motorcycles. Found this gem at the last minute. Been in hotels for 3 weeks and this is by far my favorite! Staff was very nice and the room was extremely clean and extremely comfortable beds.” -Kathy Crawford (Review via Google)

A Truly Unique, Unforgettable Experience

From our unique rooms to the incredible location, there are plenty of things that make our Torrey resort unique. You’ll no doubt return home ready to tell all of your friends—or maybe not, according to this next traveler.

“Hey, don’t come to the ChuckWagon motel for the clean, quirky rooms. Don’t come for the friendly staff or the 74 degree pool and 104 degree spa. Don’t come for the on-site food truck (Capitol Burger) “local beef and pastrami burger Rocks!” Don’t come for the on-site market with just exactly what you want.

So the message is “don’t come to The Chuck Wagon in Torrey” cause I want it just for me. Just forget I said anything…….” -Keith Brewer (Review via Google)
