Below we’ll list hotel options for staying at Bryce Canyon, Zion and the towns located between the two parks.
Bryce Canyon National Park Hotels
Here’s a list of Bryce Canyon hotels in the park and in the nearby towns.
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!
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.
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.
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.
