Where to Stay by Bryce Canyon National Park
More than 2 million people visit Bryce Canyon National Park each year, making it the second-most popular park in Utah (after Zion). It’s worth spending at least two days here, as Bryce is a bit more remote & harder to get to than Zion ~ & close to another gorgeous spot: Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. So if you’ll be in the area for a few days, you need to know “Where to Stay by Bryce Canyon.” This topic is particularly relevant for me as I’m planning a trip with friends here this fall, so let’s get a great overview of the best hotels in the area….from budget to rustic-luxury!
If you still haven’t decided which Utah National Parks to visit ~ read this article to get a good feel for each one…

Overview of Hotels by Bryce Canyon
To check rates for any property below, simply click on the name of the hotel & it will let you choose dates & check pricing. My favorite hotel options are starred.
- The Lodge at Bryce Canyon ~ The ONLY Lodging Located Inside the National Park: Set in a 1920’s log-cabin building, you need to book here WAY in advance, due to its prime location in the park. But keep in mind if you stay here: there are NO TV’s & NO AC, so it’s definitely rustic. On-site food & buffet gets mixed reviews, so if you want more variety: stay in town.
- **Best Western Plus Ruby’s Inn ($110+) ~ Family-Favorite with Large Indoor Pool Just 6 Minutes from Park: We stayed here when I was a kid, & I still remember the big pool & fun atmosphere. For my money, this is a cuter option than the Lodge at Bryce: rooms are more modern (if a but outdated) with TV’s, food is pretty good in their cowboy-style restaurant ~ & there’s a General Store & gift shop to stock up at. Popular with families & tourists!
- **Best Western Plus Grand Hotel ($202+) ~ Similar to Ruby’s Inn….But Better Rooms & Less Crowded: You’ve got a higher price tag here than Ruby’s Inn, a similar drive to the park, outdoor pool & hot tub, & spacious rooms that are a little nicer than those at Ruby’s (many with sittting areas). Their breakfast buffet is excellent, & because it’s less touristy: this is a great choice for adults or those looking for a quieter stay.
- Bryce View Lodge ($84+) ~ Motel-Style BUDGET Hotel with Indoor Pool & Decent Breakfast: Connected with Ruby’s Inn, rooms here are a little sad. If it was me, I’d pay the extra $20 for a better room at Ruby’s ~ but okay if you’re on a serious budget.
- Bryce Canyon Pines ($133+) ~ Better BUDGET Option with GREAT Restaurant & Cute Cottages: Rooms here are cuter & have more character than at Bryce View Lodge ~ & their restaurant is a stand-out: serving top-notch BLT’s, a Rodeo Burger, French Dip, & Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. You’ll be ready for any Bryce Canyon hike after a meal here! And make sure to leave room for some Peach Pie…
- **Stone Canyon Inn ($250+) ~ Stay in *Treehouses* at One of Bryce’s ONLY True Luxury Hotels: To stay in a more lux property, you’ll need to look further afield than Bryce Canyon City: to Tropic, where you’ll find rustic-chic Stone Canyon Inn. Still just 20 minutes from Bryce Canyon’s Visitor Center, they’ve got well-appointed cabins, treehouses, & a beautiful outdoor dining area & fine restaurant. Book WELL in advance here.
