In the 19th Century a Mormon settler named Ebenezer Bryce said this canyon was "A hell of a place to lose a cow". I guess that was a good enough reason to have this beautiful place named after him!

We arrived at Bryce Canyon mid morning after getting an early start from Kanab. The scenery changed from very rocky to pasture land, the first …

We spent the night in Ruby' Inn in Bryce, UT, but google maps recognizes it as Kenab. (Oops, it's raining on me as I write this on our "veranda" at the Red Cliffs Lodge. ) More about that later. I've already rated the "accommodation" so you can read about it there. Let's not waste any more time on that! Bryce Canyon is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Totally …

Vanmorgen toch nog even Bryce Canyon National Park ingegaan. De rit naar Las Vegas zou vier uur gaan duren, dus daar hadden we nog wel tijd voor. Na nog wat laatste foto's en een ontmoeting met het lokale wildlife gingen we eerst nog even naar de Subway buiten het dorp voor een ontbijt. Met het stijgen der kilo's nemen we een steeds minder exotisch …

Vandaag een geweldige weg gekozen om naar Bryce Canyon te gaan. Mocht je in de gelegenheid zijn neem dan Highway 12 van Torrey naar Bryce Canyon. We kunnen het uiteraard niet vergelijken, maar zijn blij dat we deze weg hebben genomen die door veel verschillende landschappen voerde. Van maanlandschap tot groene vlakten en van gemengde loof en …

    Not many options

    Okay. These people are raking it in. This is like South of the Border in SC. What a freaking monopoly. They own the town, and they are ripping tourists off like crazy. And you know what, they can! There are no other options. Besides having a faux western "town" across the road, this place is beyond touristy. I counted at least 14 tourist busses. Don't expect many amenities. Expect to empty your wallet. Food was good at Ruby's but pricey. My recommendation is to walk up the road to Ruby's Diner and order a pizza. Overnight accomodations. Forget it. There is a more upscale location across the street but guess what? They own that too. You don't want to miss Bryce Canyon. But I wanted you warned.

    The park closes their parking lots early, before linch, so the best thing is to get there early. Oh, I forgot to mention, our carpet was soaking wet. They had shampooed them earlier in the day and weren't too concerned that we had to walk around on wet carpets.

    Hoewel het een enorm groot hotel is, is alles prima in orde. Het restaurant serveert prima eten, maar toen we eruit liepen zagen we aan de enorme rij dat je wel op tijd moet zijn!

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Ruby's Inn Bryce

    A very poor hotel overall

    from

    We stayed there last October during our visit to Bryce Canyon NP. A previous review summed it up very well, this is all you have to choose from, as the park lodge fills up too early and quickly. Ruby's Inn is a classic example where monopoly results in poor quality in product and service. The room was very old, shabby, and unclean, so was the bathroom. Outdated furniture with the Bedspreads on their last leg.

    The hotel is very thoughtful for the travelors

    from

    We stayed at the Ruby's inn during our visit at the Bryce Canyon in April. The hotel rooms are divided into different sections. We stayed at "The Elk Lodge" for $62/nite/room online reservation. The front desk staffs were friendly. The two queen beds room was spacious. Big enough to fit a family for four if you dont fight over bathroom in the morning. The bathroom was new and very clean (even my mom said so) It's a full bath with a sink inside the bathroom and another sink outside.

    This place is a hole

    from

    Sure it has a great location but the rooms were run down. They also have way to many signs advertising the place. You are going to a national park and all you can see on the way there are Ruby's billboards. Save yourself some money if you stay here and don't get the king spa, half the jets in the tubs do not work!!!

    Awful place to stay

    from

    Having stayed at several Best Westerns on our trip to Utah and Arizona, Ruby's was by far the worst. Small, shabby room in old 'motel' type building - and this after booking a newer, hotel room on upper floor (which they were not able to accommodate us with). Poor food (we sent back a chicken salad twice) with long lines at the restaurant because they don't take bookings so you have to wait with the coach parties who turn up. The whole complex looks like an army barracks with acres of asphalt and old fashioned motel buildings. They have a captive clientele and they know it , so there is no effort to provide good service, food or accommodation. Awful place.

    Just right

    from

    Was must fine for the location. Very reasonable and had everything we needed.

    All You Have To Choose From!

    from

    Ruby's is the only franchise hotel within 30 or 40 miles from the Park.

    Unfortunately, this place has a captive audience and there is no where else to choose from that meets most travelers standards. The rooms were poor, the TV didn't work well, and we had to wait in line for ever to eat. The prices at the gift shop were astronomical.I would not recommend this place other than you don't really have a choice.

    Oasis in the (almost) middle of nowhere...

    from

    Ruby's Inn pretty much has everything a family (or otherwise) would need for a vacation at Bryce Canyon. Conveniently located just outside the park entrance, Ruby's Inn is an oasis -- comfortable, standard Best Western-style rooms and amenities; a variety of dining options; reasonable gas prices (considering); a general store; and laundry facilities. And, after a long day's drive there's even a car wash to get the bug guts off the car -- and, believe me, out there in the wilderness the living bugs like to swarm the bug carcasses when your car is parked, so it's nice to get off as much as possible.

    Additionally, the staff is friendly and they were accomodating when we arrived earlier than anticipated and made a room available a day early.

    My Favorite National Park

    from

    Ruby's Inn was right next to the park entrance. Our room was adequate, and clean. The Inn had a general store, restaurant, and lots of other ammenities. We were there off season so the rates were good. Bryce is beautiful. Ruby's had lots of info on tours, but we just drove through on our own.

    This little hotel has everything

    from

    I once heard a comedian say that Stucky's is a place where you can get a picture of yourself with Santa, get a pap smear, and a pecan log. The same can be said of Ruby's Inn. It is a self-contained vacation package for the low budget traveler. There are few hotels near Bryce which makes it even better. Inside the hotel are: a restaurant with an excellent buffet of western comfort foods, a hot tub and pool, a grocery store, native american art, outdoor outfitter supplies, a post office, a liquor store, photo developing, and a hair stylist. All this for $40/night off season. The staff are really friendly. Several of the older folks working in the restaurant like to practice their foreign language. On the off season everything in the hotel closes at 8:30 so keep that in mind. I might add that the first week of April is a great time to visit the park. The daytime temperatures are good for hiking with light jackets and you can have solitude in the park relatively easily since it is less crowded than the other parks on the grand loop, Grand Canyon and Zion National Park, and Bryce is a lot more interesting things to see since there is more diversity of conifers there than at either of the other two.

    Very Nice

    from

    The rooms are not real large but very clean and well appointed. The pool is huge and my kids loved it. We also liked the restaurant, it had a great buffet. This is the one main lodge of choice in the Bryce Canyon area and a lot of tour groups stay there. Beware of large crowds at times.
