What Our Guests Are Saying

3.5 Star Rating on Trip Advisor

  • Stopped at the Aquarius on our way to Arches. Our two queen room was more than double the size of our previous motel room. Separate rooms for sink and shower. Had a Small fridge and microwave. Table perfect for card game with the couple we were traveling with. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Nice room for the money.

    “Very large room”
  • We stayed at the Aquarius Inn b/c we were visiting Capitol Reef National Park and there were no rooms available in Torrey, Utah, which is about 5 miles closer to the park. However, the rooms were quite large, the dressing area was in a separate room from the toilet/shower, and the room had a microwave/small refrigerator/ironing board/iron/hair dryer. The inn also has a large indoor pool and very warm hot tub, plus an extensive selection of DVDs to rent.

    “Indoor hot tub and pool, large rooms”
  • The Aquarius Inn is within a few miles of the West entrance to Capitol Reef National Park. It is located in the town of Bicknell, UT. The motel is rather plain, but for the very large and very obvious glass-enclosed pool and jacuzzi in front. Rooms are large, comfortable, and well-equipped.

    “Clean and quiet – well maintained”
  • There is no traffic in Bicknell at night, so street noise is not a problem. We heard no sound at all from the neighboring room. The room was HUGE

    “Good choice for close access to Capitol Reef”
