“Very Ordinary”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

The room was small, cluttered (a fold-up bed was in the corner) and had no charm whatsoever. Yes, the basics were there: microwave, fridge, electric kettle, shower etc BUT we just didn' t feel comfortable in this space. The heater was tiny and just about managed to heat the room adequately. We would not stay here again and cannot recommend this motel.

This is a small motel in a small town not far from Bryce Canyon NP. There are restaurants in walking distance. The motel was exceptionally clean and bright. The beds were great The room seemed like it had been updated recently. We had a room in the back that was very quiet. Big screen flat TV with DISH. Microwave and small refrig.
Everything you could ask for. The room was a bit small but totally acceptable. The quality of the room, outside of size, was superior to many of the much higher priced hotels I have stayed at. I would take this any day over the bigger hotels that are just a little bit closer to Bryce. And the price is at least half or a third what you will pay at the bigger hotels in the area. I highly recommend this motel if you don't care about all the fluff of the bigger hotels.

We needed a reasonably priced motel close to hiking in Bryce Canyon. Bybee's was perfect, room #6 on the back corner. One on the cleaner motels I have ever stayed. If we return to this area again we will try to stay here.

We stayed here as a couple in our late 20's for 2 nights while visiting Bryce Canyon. The motel was in a excellent location only 12 mile from Bryce Canyon park entrance, it was in a small town with a couple of restaurants, a shop and fuel station right on the doorstep. There was a rodeo show and western dinner show near the canyon entrance if you wanted a night out. The rooms were a good average size, immaculately clean and very comfortable, had a king size bed, fridge, microwave, seating area, AC, fan, TV and free wifi which had very good Internet connection. There was also an ice machine just outside the room. The motel grounds were very nice and well presented and couldn't fault it for the price. The only bad thing I could say was the AC was very loud, but we just used the fan instead. I would defiantly stay here again, and would recommend to anyone visiting Bryce Canyon.

One of the more reasonable motels in the area and convenient location to go further East to Arches National Park the next morning so decided to give it a try from the reviews. Glad we did. A comfortable room with simple furnishings with amenities like refrigerator and microwave. The ice machine (hotel size) is outside. The quilts were a nice touch. It is a small place so do respect his email notice to call ahead if you're going to be late.

Room Tip: Some rooms in back next to a small garden. Several restaurants across the street.

It was very clean, very reasonably priced based on the fact it was well located, near Bryce canyon and the person at the reception was very helpful. The room is not huge but has anything you need and it seemed it had been updated recently. The internet worked well, the street it's on is not noisy so we had a good night sleep which was nice after a day in Bryce Canyon.
