Clean, comfortable, quiet, with some extra touches we really liked, such as oatmeal, microwave, and a heat lamp. This hotel takes care of its guests as though you are a guest in someone's home -very impressive!

This hotel is a gem. The rooms are simple and very, very clean. The price is a steal in this area. We had a king room on the back side (with a patio). The hotel has some nice touches, such as a firepit outside and a rag for cleaning mud off of your shoes. Other amenities include an ice machine...

Tropic is a short scenic drive outside of Bryce, it was preferable over the touristy area of the chain hotels. Bybees was very clean and well kept. The room was surprisingly large. The best part was the hot , hot shower with great water pressure. The mattress was hard and needs to be replaced is my only complaint. Our room...

This was a wonderful place to stay. The rooms (we had two) were clean, roomy and supplied with absolutely everything we might need. Breakfast was not provided but we had a tea kettle, a microwave and a fridge and a couple of breakfast items that we could make ourselves. The bed was comfortable and it was very quiet.

Stayed in October. Very convenient location by the Bryce canyon. Simple but very nice room with all amenities even including the energy bars. Clean and attractive but inexpensive. Breakfast isn't included. Highly recommended.

From the outside, this looks like "just another" little family motel, albeit one that is particularly well presented. However, once inside the room was huge, very well equipped for a stay of several days, and with numerous thoughtful touches such as cleaning cloths for boots, that you simply don't see in many places. Great VFM, we only stayed for one...

We booked this motel based on Tripadvisor reviews. Online photos are accurate, and I don't understand the raves. It's an adequate place for a short stay. Our room, a roadside queen, was clean and impressively quiet. Tropic is a tiny town that shuts down early, so there is virtually no noise from the street during the night. Although the motel...

We have visited Bryce Canyon National Park on three previous occasions and have stayed at the Lodge. Accommodations were not available for our time frame. Bryce City right outside of the park enterance is full of tour buses and crowds so we looked farther afield. We picked Bybee's in Tropic, about 10 miles down the road, and were very happy....

Very clean and quiet. Simple but nice. We wanted to stay at the entrance of Bryce but there was no vacancy.Instead we found a little gem. The short drive to Tropic was scenic and beautiful. We will definitely go back when we go to Bryce!
