Nice little motel close to Bryce Canyon National Park. Restaurants close by. Located right at Highway 12. We had a great good night's sleep! Room is small but quiet and everything you need is there. Price is good compared to other motels.

We were passing through on our way to Escalante and stayed here overnight. The motel is modest but the rooms are thoughtfully set up - lots of power points, free oatmeal and granola bars, good shower water pressure and immaculately clean. No complaints for the price.

So Tropic isn't a large town by any means - there's a couple places to eat and shop (literally, just a couple) - but we were on a drive from Zion to Moab and we stopped at Bryce Canyon NP during the day. This was the most reasonable place to rest, and I'm glad we did. There's not a ton of rooms, maybe 10, and we had room 7. It had tasteful decor (from the pictures on here, some look a little campy), a TV with Netflix in multiple languages, PLENTY OF TOWELS - I think 4 bath towels, 4 wash cloths, and 4 hand towels, shampoo/conditioner/shower gel minis and a dispenser in the shower, coffee maker and coffee, trail mix bars, mini fridge, and microwave. The little USB reading light was a nice touch and there were USB/power outlet banks on both sides of the bed. Landscaping was pristine. We walked across the street to have dinner at the pizza place and you also have a laundromat and gas station (with a very large store) across the street. Clear instructions, and I'm guessing it was the owner that I checked in with, which was very nice. \ So Tropic wouldn't be a place where I'd plan a vacation, but if you need somewhere to stay around Bryce Canyon or on your road trip, this place hit the spot!

The room was clean and quiet and had been updated within the past few years. It was a little weird not having any staff onsite after ~7PM. If you’re looking for an affordable place close to Bruce, it’s not a bad option.

Bybee's is a nice little mom-and-pop kind of place in the tiny town of Tropic, Utah, between Bryce Canyon National Park (10 miles away) and Kodachrome Basin State Park (13 miles). Nothing fancy, but quiet and more than adequate for a stay of a night or two. Breakfast is included (coffee and instant oatmeal) - not gourmet fare, but enough to get you out the door for a day's exploring in this beautiful area. There are a few restaurants in the area if you need more. Checking in takes a little advance planning, as there's not someone in the office full time.
