We stayed 2 nights in this hotel (in a 2 double beds room) in mid january 2013. The hotel has got a triangle shape with a little swimming pool and a spa pool area in the center of the triangle. The swimming pool is closed in winter but you can use the spa pool in the cold of the winter.
Our room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The hotel has got a good quality price balance. A good breakfast is included in the price. Your are not allowed to cook in the rooms. That's why the staff at the front desk suggest you to dine out at Rubys Inn Restaurant. This restaurant is located in a superb hotel with a Far West architecture inside and outside. The restaurant is good and pleasant. The Rubys inn has got the most beautiful heritage shop I have seen during my south west USA tour. You can spend one hour and more to look for gifts (jewells, statues, necklesses, bracelets, books, mineral stones, ...) You can even buy outdoor clothes or gear and food. In winter, tourist who come from best western can use the Rubys Inn indoor swimming pool for free (for Rubys Inn is also a best western hotel). It was a great moment for my family and I because the evening of our arrival, we were alone in this very large swimming pool. We used the hot spa pool and just after we went outdoor in the cold under the falling snow flakes. And we did it again and again. It was a real pleasure.
But the very best of this Hotel is its location, only 2.5 km from the park entrance. This park is a wonder and the Hoodoos are a grandness of mother nature.
