Not realizing October is peak travel season in Southern Utah, I had few options available when I booked accommodations in August. This B&B got good reviews and was one of the few with availability. It is in a good location as you can access a trail leading (a long ways) into Bryce Canyon at the end of the road where the inn is located. Our welcome was most inviting with warm landscaping & a most personal stray cat appropriately named "Bryce." Unfortunately, things went south when greeted by Matt, the onsite manager. He tossed us our receipt (the room was prepaid in full), gave us a room key, led us to our room, then grumbled about being from Arizona and how anxious he was to return because of a dislike for Tropic. No mention was made about breakfast the next morning nor did he offer to help with bags, though the rooms are on the second floor accessed by stairs. In all fairness, it seems that Matt was temporarily assisting the owners who were dealing with health concerns, but his negativity spilled readily into the atmosphere of the inn and his helper. Our room, Under-the-Rim, was quite lovely and spacious with a sitting area that afforded a beautiful view of the mountains at sunset. The cowboy decor just adds to the charm of the area. The bathtub was not clean, but overall the room was nice and otherwise clean. Breakfast was quite yummy and was served family style at two large tables. This provides a great opportunity to meet the other guests. Tropic is a quaint town with limited options for dining, but its appeal is the proximity to Bryce Canyon, which is heaven on earth. The fact that there are limited options for B&Bs near the canyon permits higher prices than what would be commanded in other areas. Though pricey, we would consider this option again if the regular proprietors were back in charge.
