We stayed here after visiting Escalante and on our way to Bryce. It is only an easy 15 minute drive to Bryce from here. This is very convenient - right off route 12 but set back from the road so it is quiet. Each cabin has assigned parking across from the entrance. There were snow flurries when we arrived and the temperature was in the 20s. The bathroom is not heated and the hot water is not unlimited so I couldn’t take the luxuriously long hot shower I needed after a day of hiking, especially when the temperature was so cold outside. There was a mini fridge and coffee maker in the room. My only complaint was that the beds were so uncomfortable. I am normally not picky in this department but I couldn’t sleep because I was so uncomfortable (even being exhausted from a day of hiking). Check in was easy - there was no one in the check-in cabin but there was an envelope with my name on it with the key enclosed. Also, we had a hard time finding a place to eat for dinner. It seems like most of the places had closed for the season.
Pictures look good on site.
The interior is open and spacious and a nice change from a hotel room. Mostly easy access to Bruce Canyon Park but somewhat of a drive. The front desk lady was nice but socially awkward. She did take care of a few needs for us, like burned out light bulbs and a tv that needed programmed (. No cable - only weird over the airwaves stations like Grit , Laff and Tvland )
The carpets needed cleaned. Flies in cabin meant me chasing down and killing flies.
Weird water pressure.
My biggest peeve was that it was in the middle of a gravel parking lot. No cuteness there. Just plunked in. I figured maybe it was newer and they would landscape or something . Nope. Been there 5 years.
So i didn’t give this 1 star but i can’t give it 5.....
This was my 4th trip to Bryce. Every time, I have opted to stay at Ruby's Inn. It was close to the park, a restaurant in the hotel and near a gas station.
Times have changed, Ruby's Inn prices are a lot higher. The review for the restaurant is barely acceptable. There were a few newer hotels nearby but all were quoting higher than normal prices. I opted to stay in a neaby town of Tropic.
The checkin was fast and easy. The log cabin was very homey and spacious. 2 queen beds, a refrigerator with ample towels. I sat in the front porch for half an hour until the winds picked up. For once in this trip, we did not have to worry about waking up other hotel / motel guests! The internet wifi worked really well inside the room but was spotty during the time I sat in the front porch. I will definitely stay here again in the future.
We booked a cabin here last minute and arrived late at night. We booked for 2 adults and one child. The room was absolutely adorable, but the child traveling with us slept on the couch (no problem), but there was no blanket or anything and it wasn't a pull out couch...just a regular couch. The room was very clean and comfortable. We weren't ever able to track down the wifi password. It wasn't on any of the paperwork or anywhere in the cabin that we could find. It's in a great location and there's a grocery store and restaurant within walking distance.
These appear to be newly-constructed cabins right along the main road through the town of Tropic. The location is superb for access to nearby attractions. The cabins have ample parking and are a very good size, with two luggage racks (we always appreciate this), an in-room sink next to the step-in shower/toilet, and a nice counter area with a fridge and microwave. We had an accidental carpet disaster. Tony was very understanding and moved us to another cabin without delay, which made her a gem in our eyes. There are several fine places to eat within the immediate vicinity. Last but not least, this is a sweet town with fabulous mountain views and sheep, llamas, and other animals grazing about.
