“Too expensive for what it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Trip Advisor previous reports look good'ish but we were dissapointed at the price for mediocre accommodation. Yes the rooms are large and they have two large beds but every time somebody shuts the main door to the corridor the whole place shakes. The only food served is at breakfast where you can get toast and coffee. The breakfast room??? is inside a store selling everything whilst the till also covers people buying gas and and not a pleasant place to eat. This could be improved. We did understand they had been very busy and if this is the case then they should re invest in the place, In our view look elsewhere and pay a little more.

Room Tip: Dont stay on the ground floor

We stayed here for a night in October as part of a tour round National Parks. Although a little distance away from Bryce Canyon it served as a good enough base. The accommodation is basic but functional - a big room, two ok beds, TV. There's a communal microwave in the corridor if you need it. The welcome we received was friendly and warm. We left early the next morning to catch the sunrise from Bryce Point so didn't get to sample the breakfast.

I wouldn't have been keen to stay here for very long, but for a one-night stop off it was fine. It was also by far the cheapest room we stayed in across our stay, and we felt it was good value.

Grand Staircase Inn was our sixth hotel when we was driving around the coast west and we stayed a night, on eleventh of september of 2012 and our room was nº 102

We made this reservation on Grand Staircase Inn on their official website and we paid for the room 88 $ with complimentary breakfast (coffee, milk and some toasts), we had free internet in our room and the parking facilities was ok

Grand Staircase Inn is about 20 milles Bryce Canyon and it´s in the middle of nowhere, but I think that is the reason because it´s special place and it has a good atmosphere.

We arrived at eight o´clock in the evening and the check-in was quickly and we didn´t have any problems because one friendly woman was waiting for us, and she was very very friendly. I don´t know the name but thank you for your attencion and smiles all the time.

This hotel has a grocery and you can buy some foods and drinks (no beers because they don´t sell it over there) if you want to buy some beers you must go to campground five minutes away or in the next town.

Our room Nº 102 was very big, the furnitures was good, and the carpet looked very clean and , the room had one king bed, frigde, and tv (but not lcd tv). The room had air conditioning as well and it works properly.

The bathroom is big and we had enough amenities and fresh towels, the bathroom had a shower and the shower worked properly, also this bathroom is ready for disability people.


Finally, When I made this reservation the Grand Staircase Inn sent me this e-mail:

"The staff at Grand Staircase Inn is excited to have you come and stay with us. We are confident your stay will be a memorable one"

And it is true, They got it 100%. I recomend this hotel and this place because it was amazing place and great hotel

PS: If you need some gasoline for your car you can refill your car over there because there are two pumps close to the hotel.

Very friendly people run this hotel. It is a bit of a drive from Bryce but on interesting roads. Breakfast of toast and coffee are part of the deal. Don't miss highway UT12, a sensational drive. I was impressed by the heating & cooling system running off a series of underground pipes.

We are a bit biased as the owners were just incredibly nice.

We stayed an overnight in a 'lovers' room' and it was just great. We were travelling from the Canyonlands NP towards Bryce Canyon and this was our stopover for the night. We got there pretty late (8:30pm) and there is literally nothing nearby as in restaurants or bars. The owners quickly offered to make us a fantastic pepperoni pizza that literally saved our lives as we were travelling the whole day without proper food.

The room was quite ok, with a jacuzzi that we did not use at the end. Bed was comfy, internet was quick enough, and the stars are just blazing on the clear sky.

We got nice recommendations from the owners and would definitely return if we are in the area once again!

100 miles from Capitol Reef on Magnificent U 12, at the corner of Kodachrome and Bryce, and Red Canyon. 4 Large Fluffy Towels, 2 King Beds amazing engineering in cooling and heating out here in the middle of one big beautiful away from it all place. Hiking. This is trailhead into base of Peek-a-Boo in Bryce, Mossy Cave, Willis Creek, and 35 miles up U12, Hole in the Rock Road. This is not a last resort stop. This is a spend several days and return often place. If you want a Holiday Inn, stay on the Interstates.

Room Tip: Most rooms are upstairs. One down.

The pictures on the hotel web site are real but misleading. See the photos on this site. The room we stayed in was large but devoid of anything modern or stylish. To be fair ,the bathroom had been remodeled and the room was clean, but everything else was substandard. The furniture looked like rejected items from Goodwill. An old faux suede recliner, a small chest of drawers and some odd looking steel frame love seat looking contraption that looked like it was new in the 50's sitting in front of a headboard bolted to the wall (for a bed that used to be there). The "closet" consists of a steel bar under the wooden TV shelf that supports a vintage 18" tube type TV. The view out the single window is of a dumpster and large Sinclair sign ( the motel is also a gas station). Entry is via an industrial looking outdoor stair well surrounded by bags of rock salt, ladders, buckets, and other items. The entry door on the second floor has two large holes bored into it for a door handle and lock, but instead a panic bar is bolted over top of the holes. In the large hallway outside the rooms is a table with a small microwave oven next to a basket of rags. Surprisingly, I did see an old lady in her house coat out in the hallway heating up something. Very strange. Someone mentioned creepy. I'd say this fits. There are few places to stay in this area outside Bryce and this assures steady business for pretty much any motel. No competition means little incentive to fix up and clean up. This place is at the end of the road in more ways than one. It is OK if you can find nothing else, but manage your expectations or you will be disappointed when you see it.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.
