Quaint location, decent stay
Tropic, Utah lies12-15 minutes below Bryce Canyon National Park, nestled in the bottom of the valley. Which makes the area about 10 degrees warmer than up at the park. Bryce Pioneer Village has the happy location of running alongside a stream, complete with a large bridge, huge shady trees, and a tasty restaurant. It's picture perfect, and I wish I had taken pictures to post, since I feel the website does a horrible job of providing accurate photographs.
My family of 6 reserved the queen deluxe room: 3 queen beds, one bath, an extra sink and table area. The kids loved it and we had a comfortable stay. The bathroom is tiny with no air vent or bathtub. The cabins could certainly use some updating inside, yet I liked the old look on the outside. A great value for the stay, I would reserve a second time.
Don't bother with the included continental breakfast, unless all you want is self-serve waffles, yoplait yogurt and canned peaches. No protein or compelx carbs was offered, which started my hiking trip completely winded after the first 50 yards and had to break out the jerky way earlier than intended.

Best available that we could find on short notice in September. Rooms were very small and noisy but it was better than sleeping outside. The restaurant on site was pretty good but service was very slow.
Its kind of weird go next door above the gas station to eat the continental breakfast.

This location is close to Bryce Canyon. The room is small but clean. We stay only one night and have no problem. They also have a good breakfast. Only one negative thing was for us that there is no place to hang our clothes.

A pleasant stay here but a few tweaks would be desired
The location was close to Bryce Canyon and it was no problem getting to the National park early to tour. Our room was small and clean and the first day when we checked in we were able to use the hot tub and had clean towels provided. The second day it was closed without explanation and there were no clean towels available at the swimming pool. It was like 2 different experiences. There is a new facility affiliated with the hotel next door where a continental breakfast is served. They give you a 5 dollar voucher to use there, but we did not enjoy our first time there so chose to go to a restaurant for breakfast the second day. The area is small and coffee was not available for guests so people were clamoring in line waiting for the second batch. With some work I am sure this could be improved, but for now it is a bare bones breakfast operation.
We enjoyed the restaurant for dinner the second evening and felt the food was very good. They also had a solo musician performing that made the evening even more pleasant.
For the cost of a tourist area, we found value in our stay and would consider staying again.
If you’re interested in frills then you may need to keep looking.

Do not stay in cabin #28!!!
Where do I begin? First, they double booked our cabin (which I had booked 6 months prior). They "upgraded" us to another one (#28) which included a kitchenette. Old coffee grounds were still in coffee pot and everything else was just old and nasty looking. The bathroom was tiny and there was NO electrical outlet in the bathroom (c'mon.....how is one supposed to blow dry hair??.......in the kitchenette like I had to??). There was a dirty, used washcloth in the bathroom and the towels are absolutely horrible (tiny and rough). The TV did not work. No luggage rack. I was extremely skeptical about sleeping in this place but we had no choice.
On a positive note, the restaurant on the property (Showdowns) was good (food and service) and had a nice guitar player/singer performing. The breakfast was also not bad. They may have recently made changes to the breakfast because previous reviewers noted that it was offered in the small lobby. Now it is next door (upstairs at the gas station, which looked pretty new). It was actually spacious and a pretty decent selection. No complaints, except the only fruit selection was canned peaches.
I can only hope that the other cabins and rooms were better than ours. So, if they try to "upgrade" you to #28.......DON'T DO IT!
