Blog Post - June 3-5, 2022

The Best Western Plus Ruby's Inn is located 2.7 miles away from Bryce Canyon National Park.

Because it is so close it makes it a really convenient place to stay when visiting Bryce Canyon.

We could go hiking in the morning, come back to the hotel, eat, swim, take a nap, and then go back for more hiking. 

This is what the front of the hotel looks like:

We pulled up into the arrivals covered area and went inside to get checked in. 

This is what the check-in area looks like:

After checking in, they gave us a map showing all the buildings and drew a yellow line to the building we would be staying in.

We were assigned a room in the Deer Lodge.

Our room was 7275, which was located on the 2nd floor. There was no elevator, just steps.

As you enter the room, you can see that we had 2 king size beds. The beds were really comfortable.

We also had a desk, a tv, a microwave, a mini-fridge, and a closet to hang our clothes. Inside the closet was an ironing board, iron, and a hair dryer.

The bathroom has a public area with a sink and large mirror. The private part of the bathroom has a sink, toilet, and a bathtub with a shower.

This is the view looking towards the door. You can see that the a/c is a wall unit, but it did a good job at keeping our room nice and cool.

When we checked in, the front desk gave us vouchers for breakfast for each morning that we were going to be there.

We went over to the main building where the restaurant is located and we were seated using our vouchers. The breakfast was really good and we left a few dollars for a tip for our server.

There is also a General Store attached to the main building. This was great for buying snacks, donuts, and gifts.

There is also an indoor pool at the back of the main building. The pool area has a pool and spa. There are plenty of towels there, so you don't need to bring your own. The pool is open from 7am to 10pm.

Overall, we loved staying here, but what made it even better was that it is only 2.7 miles to Bryce Canyon National Park. This made it really easy for us to go in and out of the park with a place to rest and recoup. The yellow dot on the map is the entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park.

We had a great time and would definitely stay at Ruby's Inn again.
