We were so skeptical of all the great reviews of this little motel but couldn't pass it by simply because it had so many. The room was basic but just perfect for our stay. It was very clean and it had a small fridge and a hot pot, with coffee (instant), tea and oatmeal provided. The end tables were tray... More

I cant seem to understand how this motel doesnt top the list on CS. It is spotlessly clean, furniture in the rooms look brand new, sheets and towels are fresh, (free) wifi signal is strong, and to top it all the owner is quite friendly. We were granted an early check-in so that we would not miss the world cup... More

We found this motel using an internet search as the larger hotels advertised for Bryce Canyon were full the night we were in the area, we are very pleased we chose it from previous positive reviews. It is a small and friendly family run motel; we had a clean and comfortable room at the back overlooking the ‘garden’. Although the... More

Good value hotel - clean and spacious at a very good price. About a 10 minute drive to Bryce canyon in the small town of tropic. Friendly staff, eveything was clean and well organised, would defiently recommend.

This is a very small motel with around 8 rooms. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet - simple but perfectly adequate. There are two restaurants a short walk from the motel and Bryce Canyon is only a short drive away. Note - the latest check in time is earlier than many motels as there is just a small office... More

The Stepping Stone Motel was an excellent choice! The room was very clean and quiet. The shower was wonderful, just what we needed to wash away the red dust of Bryce Canyon. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We were extremely pleased with our room at Bybee's Steppingstone. After staying for two nights in a less-than-desirable motel at the Grand Canyon (for which we paid a fortune), this place was refreshing. It was one of the cleanest rooms we have ever stayed in. We had a room on the back, and it was quiet as a mouse. We... More

Tropic is the next town to Bryce Canyon City (way closer than some of the other places you may see as "nearby".) This motel has everything you would need - clean, comfortable bed, enough light to read by, simple charm, refrigerator etc. There is both instant coffee and instant oatmeal provided (& a restaurant across the street if you want...

We ended up here as there was no room in the inn across the road. So glad, it was excellent. It isn't 5 star luxury, but what it does do it does very well. This includes a comfy bed, extremely clean room and bathroom, porridge for breakfast and a kettle. We're from the UK and miss having kettles in our... More

It's only about 8 miles away from Bryce Canyon, so quite handily placed. The town of Tropic is extremely quiet, and there isn't much open past 8:30pm. The room had everything I needed. The accessible bathroom was brand new, and very comfortable with great water pressure that didn't lead to a room flood like most powerful showers tend to do.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Steppingstone Motel Is a small family operated motel with very clean and comfortable rooms and a relaxed atmosphere. Each room is personalized and different from anything you will find in the area. We are located in on Scenic Byway 12 In Tropic Utah and is the Steppingstone to the Grand Staircace-Escalante National Monument. The Visitor's Center is only 5 miles south of the motel. The beautiful Mossy Cave hiking trail is 3 miles from town and is certainly worth the time to investigate. Take a look around and enjoy the splendor. AAA approved/ recommended by Lets Go. ... more   less
