I ended up eating dinner here twice after sampling the competition down the road. The service was fast, friendly, and attentive, and the food was basic but prepared well. I had the salmon special the first time and the sirloin steak the second. Both were cooked as ordered and tasty. The salad bar didn't have too many condiments but the lettuce was crisp. I thought the onion soup was quite good. I was also satisfied with the warm brownie with ice cream dessert. The window seats have nice views of the distant mountains and surrounding plains. Checkout is done at the register so you can leave anytime you want and don't have to wait for your credit card to be taken and returned. BTW prices were close to half of those at the Bryce Canyon Lodge.

We were on a road trip to Bryce Canyon, didn't have a hotel reservation, and were quickly running out of options. Every place we tried was full. We happened across this motel and figured it was worth a try vs sleeping in our car. The room was very clean and comfortable. The price was great and the staff were very friendly. The same people have a restaurant at the same location that had good food for reasonable prices. Other than some highway traffic noise in the morning, the place was pretty quiet. While it may not be as fancy as some of the other hotels by the park and may not have some of the other amenities (no pool, hot tub, gym, etc) , it was a great place to sleep while we were there.
For being close to Bryce Canyon this is a welcome rest from high national park rates. Room is smaller with no table, two decent comfortable beds & NICE tile bathroom that actually looks out of place with walls in bedroom; but if you are not a snob; this is clean value for location. Family run place for many years with restraunt & 'large" grocery on premisies. Restraunt is the gem of this place...great prime rib. We got 2 room dinner/breakfast pkgs for $119 for two people. Kids got their own room for the night ;) While room walls looked dated; service, meals, & grocery right there for stocking coolers with drinks for day in park made this the place for my return visit in future
Going to Bryce Canyon on a budget? Foster's Motel on Hwy 12 is a good choice. The rooms are clean and have everything you need but they're a little small. No pool, but with everything to do at the Canyon we didn't feel we needed one. The restaurant is just only okay but they have a general store and bakery we utilized day and night. Excellent fresh breads, banana bread, fruit, sandwiches, fried chicken, coffee, etc, all really necessary for hiking Bryce. Not far from entrance to Bryce. Saw no questionable-type clients or beer bottles etc. The nice maintenance man knows a lot about horse and trail rides.
We stayed at three places while visiting Utah national parks, and this was the best. It was also the lowest priced one. The people were very nice and accomodating. Our unit was very roomy. We had a squeaky bed, and the man tried very hard to fix it. It was better, but when he couldn't get it fully fixed, he offered to give us a partial credit. There's no ice machine, but when we needed ice, we got a very large supply. Decent restaurant right there. Nice accomodating people.
We stayed here on or just after memorial day weekend. Everywhere in the south west of the USA seemed to be booked out. We made a visit to Bryce canyon just after we checked in for a sunset, and again in the morning before we checked out. It was 10 or so minutes down the road. It was clean, neat, quiet and a good price and close enough to the park that we were in the area for. Breakfast wasn't included but it was pretty good and very cheap.
Fosters was the only place that came across our radar. It was not far from the National Park, had a diner type atmosphere, looks like it used to be a Denny's. The view out the window was beautiful, and a hummingbird hovered nearby. Joke books on each table kept us entertained. The dinner was good, my husband really enjoyed his French Dip, but the Fosters Berry Pie with ice cream was delicious and not to be skipped.
It was very reasonable and the food was good at the restaurant. My friend and I were traveling across the country and stayed in many places. This was one of our favorites. It is four miles from Bryce Canyon. The place was clean and warm. It is not glamorous. The staff are friendly and fair. If there is an issue they fix it, if not they refund you. I wouldn't hesitate to book there again.
The trout was really good.. This place is no better or worse than anything else we've tried in the area. I think when we come back we'll stick with things like burgers and sandwiches. We saw a French-Dip sandwich and it looked so good! The salad bar was a bit slim, but at least they had good lettuce and not just iceberg.
Good omen. Saw a herd of pronghorn antelope on the drive over. Kind of set the tone for things to come. Had a cowboy steak, probably the freshest beef I have had in a decade. Threw down the berry pie. Listened to country music overhead. Drove back to thousand stars. Yep, it was that good. More like magic.
