A wonderful stay in this very convenient inn. The room was large and confortable, the breakfast was delicious (strongly recommend the pancakes !), and so close to Bryce Canyon. Recommend it !

... we saw Saturn, the moon and a globular cluster(cool!) They pointed out the Big Dipper, the Little Dipper, the North Star (which isn't too bright) the Southern Cross, and Scorpio. We had to leave early since we hadn't had dinner and looking up was making me dizzy. We were saying that in NY-on Long Island we don't see many stars. One New Yorker said "I figured out a way to see the night sky in NY." When I asked how he said he moved from Brooklyn to Buffalo! Got to bed late.
