Bryce Canyon National Park Hotels

Here’s a list of Bryce Canyon hotels in the park and in the nearby towns.

The Lodge at Bryce Canyon

This is the only hotel-type accommodation found inside the boundaries for Bryce Canyon. There are lodge rooms, studio rooms, guest suites, and cabins. Staying at the Lodge will be a rustic experience because there are no TV’s, air conditioning, or Wi-Fi. If you’re looking for a hotel with all the amenities, then this isn’t the lodging option for you!

Best Western Plus Ruby’s Inn

Located 1 mile from the park this popular hotel fills up fast so book well in advance. Rooms include TV’s, private bathrooms, AC, and free WiFi. Pets are allowed on request, charges may apply. Other amenities include a fitness center, indoor pool open all year, jacuzzi, convenience store and restaurant. Free continental breakfast is included.

Best Western Plus Bryce Canyon Grand

If you’re looking for a luxury hotel option, the Best Western Grand is pretty much it. It’s also only 1 mile from the park. Amenities include a fitness center, indoor pool open all year, jacuzzi, convenience store and restaurant. Free continental breakfast is included.

Bryce Country Cabins

Log cabins aren’t hotels, but we recommend them as a consideration. They are known for their comfortable beds and spectacular views. Located in Tropic about 15-minutes from Bryce Canyon, the rustic cabins come standard with air-conditioning, outdoor furniture, a TV with cable channels, a microwave, a refrigerator (some have a full kitchen or kitchenette), a private bathroom with a bath or shower and free WiFi.

Zion Lodge

This is the only lodging available inside Zion. When the Zion National Park shuttle is in service, Zion Lodge guests can drive their own vehicle into the canyon which is so nice!

It’s located three miles north along the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. It has motel rooms, cabins, and suites as well as a gift shop and post office. However, rooms do fill up quickly so reservations are highly recommended.

The town of Springdale, Utah borders the park. You can park at any of the hotels in town for free and take the Springdale shuttles for free.
