Ruby's Inn is the closest hotel to Bryce Canyon National Park. It has everything from a RV park, campground, grocery store, gift shop and restaurant. The shuttle of the park picks up right in front of the hotel. There is also a gras station and decent ice cream shop across the street. Let's be honest, most people will be up early and outdoors all day. We hiked for hours both days and were barely in the room. I really liked that we had a first floor room at the back of the lodge where we had direct access to our car.
Things I didn't like:
1) it was noisy in the rooms!!! We could hear people walking above us which wasn't that annoying but shows how old the place is. We had inconsiderate neighbors who let their kids run around and bang on walls. They let the door completely slam all day and night even at 11 PM. We even had to call the front desk, but what can you do when people only think about themselves and not other guests.
2) Dirty!!! The sheets had black stains and the carpet felt nasty. I always wore socks to walk on itOur room was never cleaned during our 2 night stay. We went for a hike from from 7 AM to 1 PM and when we returned our room hadn't been cleaned.
3) Lack of Social Distancing. i get it - it is Utah not CA, but I was shocked at being seated right next to another table in the restaurant. Some employees wore masks, some didn't. Many guests did not wear masks. They have a small fast food/pizza place that was full if people. The indoor pool was also packed and prob a cesspool of germs.
Next time, I'd stay further away from Bryce Canyon NP in a quieter, less expensive and chaotic location. less
