Garfield County hotels

Overnight stop between Bryce Canyon and Arches National Parks

by Judith

We spent an afternoon touring beautiful Bryce Canyon and then drove the short distance to Stone Canyon Inn in Tropic for an overnight stay. We hadn't eaten much during the day, as many places are closed for the season in the beginning of November, so we planned to eat at or near the Inn. We discovered the hotel restaurant was closed, and it was suggested that we drive back to Bryce Canyon to find one or two restaurants that might still be open, but fortunately we discovered that Clark's Rustler's Restaurant was open on Main Street. We had a very nice hot dinner there with very good service. The lodge was located on a gravel road a little off the main road, so it helped to have a Jeep. We were pleased with how nice the accommodations are. The cabin we stayed in was clean, with a nice sitting room and a lovely bedroom with a very comfortable king size bed. The bathroom had all we needed, and there was a nice wall heater in there to make it toasty after showering. In the morning, we returned to Clark's for some hot breakfast sandwiches and coffee for on the road. My only advice is, if you are travelling in November, buy your food and gas wherever there is an opportunity, as many places are closed for the season. We liked the accommodations at Stone Canyon Inn very much and would recommend it to all.
