    Well, very limited accommodation around here. Room is okay'ish. Am in block away from reception..end entrance door has never shut in ages so security poor. Halls and room recently painted but furnishings rather tired. Air conditioning unit is from the 60s and pumping up hot air when set to max cold. Carpets clean in the middle of room but along the edges lots of dust and bits of food. Needs somebody to give a bit of attention to detail here. It is a missed opportunity.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Americas Best Value Inn & Suites-Bryce Valley Tropic



    We stayed one night at Bryce Valley Inn in July 2005. The hotel was OK and the room were very clean and reasonably priced. It is located 20 minutes drive from the Bryce canyon entrance. Beautiful scenary. We would come back here.

    Creepy vibe


    This place is an okay choice if you want a moderately priced place to stay close to Bryce Canyon. However, the staff is terribly unprofessional (a girl who continued to talk on the phone to her boyfriend while she was supposed to be helping me), the place is kind of sketchy (our door would not close or lock), and it's located in front of a trailer park. The restaurant serves decent food but we had trouble getting any service since they seemed overwhelmed by the bus tour that had stopped there. The value for what you get is not all that great, in my opinion, but I suppose you could do worse.

    Basic but cute!


    Unless you are staying in the Park itself, there is really nothing great by way of accommodations anywhere nearby. You are going to have to settle for "good enough." The town of Tropic is really not much of a town. Just a bunch of cheap motels along the roadside, with three "restaurants" to choose from. But this place is really quite decent. The cabins don't look like much from the outside - look like something that got towed there on a trailer. But inside, they are all knotty pine, with a nice log framed bed, very clean and comfortable, with a lot more charm than you might expect. Considering we only slept there, and spent all the rest of the time hiking in Bryce, it was just fine. Keep in mind you are a 15 minute drive from the park.

    Good jumping-off point


    A basic but pleasant hotel with good service; prepare to be up with the hordes at the crack of dawn, though, because the walls are paper-thin.

    Satisfactory accommodation


    This hotel is rather basic, but there are no problems with this place. The "town" of Tropic has rather basic amenities, 1 store, 1 restaurant, 1 gas station open out of season, so don't expect much and maybe go prepared. A short drive (15 minutes) to Bryce canyon, and there all issues are forgotten though.

    Friendly and clean


    Very Good. Having just previously looked at the Bryce Pioneer Lodge and realising that I would prefer to sleep in my garden shed we turned up at the Bryce Valley Inn.

    The young lady in reception was very friendly and for just $10 more than the Pioneer village you had vastly superior accommodation here, equally as good as any of the national chains of Motels and certainly cleaner than some of them.

    Within easy reach of Bryce Canyon National Park and breakfast in the next door Hungry Coyote Restaurant is a must with the very friendly happy staff.

    Just okay


    The accommodations were slightly below average. While our room was clean and quiet, there was no TV remote control, no long distance calls allowed from the room (without the purchase of a phone card from the front desk, which did not work once we purchased it), no hair dryer and the water took a long time to warm up. The rooms are VERY basic, but the staff was pleasant. Yolanda did not charge us for the first night when our flight was delayed when landing in Vegas and we couldn't make the long drive that night. The Hungry Coyote restaurant was okay, nothing special, but the waitress Denise was very friendly and helpful! I don't think I would stay at Bryce Valley Inn again - I might try Ruby's next time.

    Suited our needs


    We stayed two nights at Bryce Valley Inn in May 2004. Tropic is every inch a country/cowboy town. The hotel was OK and the rooms were very reasonably priced. It is situated in Tropic which is about 10 minutes from the bus terminal to catch into the park or 20 minutes from the park gates. Dinner at Doug's Place next door is a must. The meal we had was delicious with plenty of extras included in the price and excellent service.



    This motel is nestled in the quiet hills of Bryce Valley. It is conveniently located on the scenic byway. There is a neat backdoors hike within walking distance. The staff was more than friendly. I would reccomend it to anyone.

    An oasis


    Bryce Canyon is out in the middle of nowhere in the southern Utah canyon country. The Bryce Valley Inn is located in Tropic, a village of 460 people. As I traveled through Zion National Park to get here from Las Vegas, you notice that there are not too many places that look very accomodating. The Valley Inn has enough rooms to give it the critical mass needed to be a full time job for the owner and staff. The room was clean and motel was very quiet. Drive out a few miles to lose the last street light and you can see the Milky Way on a clear night. There are 2 restaurants within walking distance, general store, bank, gas station, gift shop, etc. Close to local recreation (ATV, horse back and airplane rides within 10 miles). Beautiful scenery. I would come back here.

    Like it or not, we're heading home. Okay, the first stage of it but heading back to Las Vegas we are. Moab was fun but after a while you'd either want to stay and do some of the cheaper things like hiking or find a job to pay for all the more expensive adventures you can do.

    Our second day in the Bryce Canyon area started as sunny as the last one ended. We have a quick breakfast (included in the room rate) at Clarke's Restaurant. Afterward we headed straight back to Bryce Canyon, a) to avoid the masses and b) to get on the trail before it was getting too hot.

    We parked at Sunset Point and decided to walk the …

    Today, we headed further on our journey through the great Colorado plateau. Our destination for today was the beautiful Bryce Canyon. Getting up wasn't quite easy: The mule ride had shown its impact on our muscles... But we didn't plan on doing any hikes on this day, so we only had to survive the car ride.

    The route was relatively …

    At the end of the first Canyon Carol & Graham decided to call it a day and headed back to the car whilst Paulie and I went onto the second.

    The second had more water flow (wet feet again!) but was much lower in height and more winding. We could have done all 4 but were aware that the time was getting on and we had a ...

    I am so blessed to spend the summer in such a unique and beautiful place. I had a project day yesterday to prepare the talks I will be giving. I love so much about this park I am having trouble focusing on one area or topic to talk about. There are lots of resources for study but the easiest way for me to learn is with my boots on the ground hiking around. Becca. a longtime volunteer who is leaving Saturday for ...
