I can understand why some reviewers had their doubts about this resort, but we didn’t experience any real problems.
Ok, maybe the furniture needs updating and the tv remote needs a battery, but I didn’t feel as if I was in any mortal danger. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the guy at the check in desk was helpful and friendly. We had a room with a view of the small airport and the surrounding countryside. The hotel is on the main road, which wasn’t exactly busy – in fact, we didn’t see much traffic at all. Maybe it doesn't have some of life's comforts, but you need to adopt a tolerant point of view.
The restaurant is the resort’s strong point. We had breakfast and dinner in here twice, and the food was excellent at a good rate. The staff were really friendly, informative and chatty.
The hotel is an easy drive away from the canyon entrance. The best idea is to park near the bus pick up in the city, and use the shuttle bus service. It’s far easier using the bus to get around the park than using your own car – and if you get chance, go on the three hour shuttle deeper into the park, you see a lot more.
To be honest, my wife and I are experienced travellers, and we’ve had worse experiences in the last 20 years at some hotels in the USA that are supposedly rated higher then the Bryce Canyon Resort. In previous replies to posts, the owner has clearly explained the hotel’s strategy – so don’t expect five star treatment.
