In the past I've stayed at Rubys Inn, but due to availability issues this year, I took a chance on Bryce Canyon Pines. There is a good chance I'll be back.
First off, this is a slightly dated motel; you're not going to have a massage/spa session or have a 5 star dining option or 40 billion thread count fine pillows with chocolates placed on them at night. The layout of the rooms can be slightly offbeat, but overall I found this motel to be very clean, very pleasant, and the two ladies I ran into at the front desk were quite friendly. Location wise, it's about a 5-6 minute drive to where Rubys is, so I feel it can be a very viable alternative if you would like to stay away from the crowds and madness common to the "closer" locations while still being close to the park. I can't report on the dining; I ate elsewhere, but the gas station/store a 3/4 mile down the road is friendly, although honestly the selection in the store is a bit "thin"; if you need supplies I'd still strongly suggest you stock up at the big store at Rubys even if you stay here. Overall I can easily recommend this place; it has a more quiet, calm nature to it than the "big places" near the park while not being that much further away. Certainly I'd stay here over staying in Tropic although the prices will be a bit higher. A nice place that balances the aspects of location and crowds nicely, and thus is recommended as an alternative.
