“Cozy and historic in a great location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

Bryce Canyon Lodge is definitely the place to stay if you are travelling to Bryce Canyon National Park. My room was 100 yards from the edge of the canyon so we could hike the canyon or walk the edge anytime we wanted. At night you are also just a few steps away from the best star gazing and clearest night sky I have ever seen....and I am from Montana! We looked at Jupiter and it's moons and could easily see all of the other constellations. Download GoogleSky or another star gazing app on your phone to help you out! The food at Bryce Canyon Lodge's dining room was great and the room itself was very comfortable and clean. I stayed there two nights while on my Austin-Lehman Adventures Bryce/Zion trip.

Stayed here as part of a two week walking trip to the canyons in mid April. The lodge accommodation is fine, generously sized room adequately equipped, plenty warm enough, and because we had one at the back of the building the balcony looked over the landscape as opposed to the car park. Check in was busy (and always seemed to be), staff were helpful in a 'well trained' way but did not have the time to chat as we had found in other locations.

Being on site makes it a lot more convenient to get to trailheads early, and to visit the (incorrectly named) sunrise and sunset points. The Canyon itself is magnificent, although because it was early in the year a couple of the trails we wanted to walk were closed. As with all of the locations on our trip an early start gave you the best walking - few people about, plenty of wildlife etc.

A word of warning - book the restaurant as early as possible! The restaurant gets full quickly and even with a booking you may have to wait. Food is good with generous portions if a little expensive.

Room Tip: For the lodge accommodation try and get one that does not overlook a carpark.

We enjoyed the cabins in Bryce Canyon Lodge. The gas fireplaces helped take the chill off and they were very cozy and clean. Would have liked to have gotten the connector for our party of two but the two cabins we did get were next to each other. It was an easy walk to the canyon rim. We did go in the dark to catch the night sky and were suprised in the morning to note how close the benches we sat on were to the rim with no barrier (be careful). You do need a flashlight if you are walking in the dark. If we have the occasion to visit again, I would definitely choose this accommodation again.

We did not regret staying here several nights, though it had various problems. Being right in the park for night time walks and the restaurant made up for the annoyances. Check-in was frustrating, starting at 4 pm, a room full of people hanging about the tiny lobby, and rooms not all available at that time. Our Sunrise room, motel-like, had a broken lock, so we had to return and get a different room. We did not mind absence of a TV (a new arrival turned around and complained the clerk had not mentioned such), nor the basic rustic appearance. It was clean and comfortable, and the sole house cleaner was friendly and helpful. We found the meals surprisingly moderate in price and of good quality, with fully professional service. This was our version of camping--comfort and warmth without the extras in a phenomenal outdoor setting. Imagine being there with snow too.

Room Tip: The cabins are charming but when we were there the residents were told to put their water on drip be...

It's hard to separate our feelings about Bryce Canyon and the lodge, because the canyon is one of the most spectacular sights I think it's possible to see on the face of the earth - and the lodge sits in a great spot, close to the main 'amphitheater' and just seems to... belong.

So what does it offer? We stayed in one of the 2-storey 'motel' blocks and it was warm, inviting and clean. The room wasn't as warm as the main building but after we read about the lodge's green credentials we purposely kept the heating low - our choice. Having said that, the door to the lovely, rustic balcony could insulate better - we made that comment on our feedback form. This is a spot for outdoorsy types and there is no TV - and you'll only pick up a couple of radio stations. Take a book if you need entertainment.

The lounge at the main lodge is very inviting but you need to be lucky to get near the large blazing open fire - worth it though. There is also an open fire in the large dining room. We were advised on arrival that 6.30 PM - 7.30 PM is the busiest time for dinner, so we avoided that hour and had no problem either night we were there.

I can't agree with some comments about the food in the dining room. I had marinated baby back ribs with truffled mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables for my second dinner. That and the astonishing huevos rancheros I had for breakfast the following morning were the two best meals of our 10-day trip. The server at breakfast seemed genuinely concerned that I put no hot sauce on my eggs - I tried it and he was right to encourage me. A great dish become perfect!

What I can agree with is the gripe that people in the dining room 'entertain' themselves with phones, i-pads and the like. We sat at a table on two nights near the same group of muppets who listened to/watched baseball on smartphones and an i-pad whilst eating. I'd have thought one system per table of four was enough but not for these morons! World series? If it matters so much, stay home! The fact that the server was asking the score seemed to place my wife and I in the minority and validate the behaviour so we stayed quiet - which I now regret.

Reception staff were fantastic and efficient. Staff at the general store on the site were similarly helpful. The products stocked were good, especially in view of the fact that the property was a week or so away from closing for the season. The benefit for us was that there were times that we had the park almost to ourselves. Ahh - bliss.

The gift shop has an amazing stock and I swear I could spend half a day (and half my salary) in there. Peep round the door to the chapel too, where they hold non-denominational services. Very calming - how lovely it must be to attend a service there if the snow is just beginning to fall...

I'm rambling - so I'll sum up by saying that this is a great base for exploring a breath-taking destination. Neither accommodation prices nor food prices are a rip-off and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. My wife and I agree that we would return in a heartbeat if we find we're missing Bryce Canyon too much - which I think is certain to happen.

Room Tip: I advise a 2nd-floor room in the motel blocks. Not sure if they're quieter but why take the cha...

The staff were friendly and helpful and the main lodge building seemed rustically charming when we arrived. Later on though, waiting 45 minutes for a table in the restaurant, most of the charm had worn off. Dozens of residents in enforced company fiddled with laptops, yakked into phones, flipped idly through coffee table books or simply stared distractedly into the rafters. Was the wait worth it? No. The worst meal we had on our 15 night trip. Badly cooked, slapped on the plate and barely warm. The restaurant has all the charm of an all-night petrol station. And it was draughty. Our log cabin in the woods was OK though it could have done with a major clean-up and a bit of a refurb. Mice in the woodwork during the night provided some natural sound effects in keeping with the bucolic setting. Bryce Park is amazing. The sights are fantastic. The lodge is a great base for enjoying the scenery. Two tips: ask for an upgraded cabin or room (if they have any) and take your own dinner.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade on checking in. Ask if mice are a known problem in your room.

Stayed here one night in mid-July. Assigned to a ground-level room in the motel-style Sunrise Building. Turns out it was a handicapped-accessible room. We had made our reservation three months prior; think this assignment should have been run by us to see if it would be acceptable. Shower was just a portion of the bathroom; curtain did not go all the way to the floor, so water got out onto the floor. Otherwise, the room was satisfactory and SO convenient to the rim!

Be aware that you might have some night-time guests -- we awoke to discover evidence that some of our snacks had been enjoyed by some unexpected visitors (mice).

Based on other reviews, we hiked the Navajo (moderate) to Queens Garden (easy) Combo Loop. We started on the Navajo Trail at Sunset Point, then switched over to the Queens Garden Trail for our return. The loop was around three miles and took a little over two hours.

We were somewhat disappointed with the offerings at the General Store, located about a half mile from the Lodge. For guests staying in rooms in which there was no micro or frig and no cooking allowed, the food offerings were scant the two times we stopped in. We chose to have a breakfast in the Lodge's dining room and were very satisfied; however, this facility's dining room does not have the atmosphere of the lodge at Grand Canyon, North Rim.

There is a very nice gift shop located within the Lodge, as well as a post office.
