The good stuff first: Ruby's is at the prime location for anyone visiting Bryce Canyon. There is a bus stop right in front of the hotel for the free shuttle to the park. Very convenient.
Now, the other stuff: Ruby's Inn is a huge place, with many different wings added over the years. So it is understandable that some rooms will be newer or nicer than others. When we made our reservation, we were unfamiliar with Ruby's, and did not request a specific location or type of room. So when we arrived in the early afternoon, and were told that "our room" was not available yet, it seemed odd that there would be no room immediately available, out of all those rooms. At any rate, they checked us in and told us to return later to get the keys for "our room." After touring Bryce for a couple of hours, we returned, picked up the keys, and proceeded to the room, which was right next door to Ruby's Diner. To say it was a disappointment would be an understatement. I am guessing that this particular row of motel-type rooms is one of the older sections of Ruby's. The room was dank and charmless. There were issues with the plumbing and with the fluorescent lighting. I cannot comment on what any of the other rooms are like; I assume that on average they are better than ours was. I am sure that -- even with the near monopoly that this family has in the area -- there must be nicer places to stay for about the same price, though maybe just a trifle less conveniently located. If I return to Bryce, I will definitely look elsewhere for lodging.
