We have stayed at Ruby's Inn before, not because it's nice, but because it's convenient. When we tried to book Ruby's this time they were full, so I started looking around. To be honest, if you haven't been to the Bryce area, there aren't that many nice places to stay up there. I was concerned, and started looking around Trip Advisor. We found The Red Brick Inn, and what a gem we discovered. When you check in Peggy the hostess makes you feel right at home, gives you the tour, shows you where the cookies and coffee are, explains the DVD system, and introduces you to the other guests. After check-in if you need help, she'll help you, if you want to be left alone, she'll respect that. The breakfasts were amazing everyday. We were travelling with teenagers, and our picky eater did not share my enthusiasm for the breakfasts. Peggy picked up on that, and made him bacon and pancakes, because she seems to understand teenagers. While you're enjoying your breakfast, Peggy will sit with you and discuss your plan for the day. No matter where you're going, she'll have excellent tips on restaurants, places to stop etc. She is a top notch hostess, with tremendous attention to detail. One day we were headed to a float trip in the area. I was uncomfortable getting there, because the float company's directions were sketchy at best. Peggy knew exactly where the place was, and gave us spot on directions. On the way there she told us where Butch Cassidy's old hideout was, and exactly how to get there. On the way home she knew we would be hungry, so she suggested two excellent restaurants in the area, and gave us the directions to get to them. When we returned we were a mess from the float trip. Peggy greeted us at the door, and volunteered to do our laundry. The next day, our filthy clothes magically appeared in our room after being laundered and neatly folded. Peggy went way above and beyond our expectations, and we look forward to returning sometime soon.
