This inn is really about 12 large, comfortable motel rooms built above the only grocery store/gas station in the small town of Cannonville, UT, near Bryce NP. If you are expecting a chain motel experience, then you will be disappointed. But if you'd like a large clean room in a very peaceful town, then you might like this inn. The rooms were large, comfortable and clean, but there were no clocks ( we turned our cell phones on to check the time) and no luggage racks on which to put our suitcases. Speaking of cell phones, there is no service here -- you have to go 4 miles to Tropic for cell phone service. The "breakfast" offered is simply coffee and toast with packets of jam in the little grocery store on the first floor. The store does stock a few other items but it is mostly for the convenience of the town -- sort of like a 7-11 little place. The town is very quiet -- the town dogs sleep in the middle of the streets, and the town kids ride up to the store on their horses! Beautiful stars when the sun goes down; beautiful colors at sunrise and sunset!
A few other things to mention: the nearest restaurants are 4 miles away in Tropic and both of them are fine -- a pizza place and Clarks, a family restaurant. This is Mormon country so the store is not open on Sunday and if you show up on Sunday or after hours, you'll have to use the red phone outside to call the owners to check you in. Also, the motel is 3 story and the staircase are outside, leading to inside corridors.
We had a fine time and would stay again, or maybe try someplace in Tropic. It is WAY more peaceful than the mass of people staying just outside Bryce!
