Panguitch is located only 25 miles west of Bryce Canyon NP and here you will find many hotels and restaurants for your stay near the park. There is also a grocery store here.
We stayed at the Mariana Inn, the rooms were basic but clean and comfortable with two double beds and tv. Cost of the room was only $40 if you called ahead and made a reservation.
this place is really nice - its at tropic - which is near bryce canyon - the B&B is beehind a big motel called bullberry inn or something like that
the breakfast is really nice as well
they have a farm with all kind of animals and hot tub
I liked a lot staying at Harold's Place. The cabins where so clean and comfortable.
All non-smoking, but with an ash tray out of the cabin.
The food was very good. I had dinner and breakfast there.
The owner was so kind and friendly, and i understood her :) (i'm not a good english speaker)
There are many different choices around Bryce Canyon. The lodge inside the park would be most convenient, but it gets booked up way ahead of time. There's also a campground. Or, you can do what we did, which is stay at a hotel in a small town nearby. Ruby's Inn is the closest hotel to the park (not counting the park's own lodge), and during high season you can take a shuttle from the hotel to the park. Check out their website, below.
The National Park Service's website for Bryce Canyon has great info on all of these options: http://www.nps.gov/brca/index.htm
indoor swimming pool, air-conditioned rooms, restaurant, some suites with jacuzzis for after that long, strenuous hike
Harold's Place is just east of the intersection of Hwy 89 and Hwy 12. It's a family-run business. Very friendly.....great rooms for only $55 per night. They're cabins.....but, very modern with bathrooms and TVs, but no phones. The whole place is clean and well-run....nice and comfortable.
The restaurant is great, too. For more info: http://smallbiz.ksl.com/speak-8371i.php
Address is 3066 Hwy 12, Panguitch, UT 84759; phone: (435)676-2350
Family-run business - Kristy (daughter) handles the office. She is very helpful to travellers....knows the area very well.
Bryce Canyon's backcountry is a primitive area and managed according to regulations that protect its wilderness values. Backcountry camping is allowed on a limited basis and only at designated campsites. A $ 5.00 backcountry permit is required. Permits are issued at the visitor center from 8:00 am until 2 hours before sunset.
There are two campgrounds in Bryce Canyon National Park, North and Sunset Campgrounds.
North Campgrounds (Open Year Round) is located East of Park Headquarters. It is at an elevation of 8,000 feet. There are 55 tent sites and 55 RV sites with no hookups. There are picnic tables, drinking water, toilets and showers.
Sunset Campgrounds (Closed in Winter) is located two miles South of Park Headquarters. It is at an elevation of 8,000 feet. Sunset Campground has 101 sites available on a first-come, first-served basis; Located opposite Sunset Point approximately 1.5 miles south of the Bryce Canyon Visitor Center. Sunset Campground is closest to the best hiking trails which begin and end at Sunset Point.
I've stayed at both campgrounds and they're equally great!
Reservations can be made 240 days in advance for May 15 - September 30. NOTE: an extra booking fee of $9 is charged per reservation (i.e., a reservation for 2 nights stay would cost $10 + $10 + $9 = $29). Campsites not reserved will be awarded on a first come, first served, nightly bais only.
This is the closest hotel to Bryce Canyon National Park without staying at Bryce Canyon Lodge. It is only 5 miles from the heart of Bryce Canyon National Park. The complex has a lake, general store, full service restaurant, and a diner (reality a fast food restaurant). This is a great place to spend a couple of days. They even had the internet there so you can look up great tips from VT. The room here was very nice as well.
There is an outdoor pool and an indoor pool with jacuzzi
There are two campgrounds inside the park: North Campground, open year round, and Sunset campground, open May through October. Ruby's Inn, just outside the park, also has a campground and RV hookup.
This is a popular place just outside the entrance to Bryce Canyon NP. The Inn is run by the descendants of the family that first owned it and I believe it is on the National Registry of Historic Places.
Ruby's Inn is a small complex with a restaurant, general store, meeting rooms and an indoor pool. The rooms are standard Best Western accommodations, but suites and interior rooms are available as well.
The rates are cheaper than the Bryce Canyon Lodge. Unlike the lodge, which closes in the winter, the property is open throughout the year. During winter months- November through March, you can get a room here for about $40 a night.. Rates are higher in the summer months, but Ruby's Inn remains a cheaper alternative to the Bryce Canyon Lodge. It is less than a mile to the entrance of Bryce Canyon and you could literally walk to the park from Ruby's Inn. The Bryce Canyon shuttle, which runs during the summer months, makes a stop here as well.
I stayed here for two nights in November, 2004. The room was small, but clean and comfortable and everything worked just fine. A great deal considering the location and the price. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, although the restaurant was overpriced and lacking in quality and the servers appeared to have a case of the winter blues. But this place would be my top choice for a hotel near Bryce Canyon.
The inn has a restaurant, tour desk, one hour film development, laundry facilities and a store which sells souveniers and supplies. Also, there's a heated indoor pool, interior rooms and suites for families traveling with children.
You will find two campgrounds, located in close to the Visitor Center. Both have restrooms with flush toilets, and drinking water. If you wish to take a shower or do laundry this is possible in the summer months at the nearby general store. Both campgrounds are located in a ponderosa pine forest. Neither campground has hook-ups, but a fee-for-use sanitary dump station is available seasonally near North Campground. Since the North Campground, which is located opposite the Bryce Canyon Visitor Center is the only one that is open all year, this is where we stayed. It has 107 sites in four loops. This is the campground that is closest the general store. Two loops are reserved for RV use and two other loops are for tent campers.
it is the closest accommodation to the bryce canyon national park.
we only used it to sleep and that was good.
the breakfast was also good.
If you don't bring your own tent, and you intend staying overnight in the area of Bryce Canyon, Ruby's is almost your only choice! It is both a motel and RV campground, and provides everything you need, though its nothing special.
Very nice, small motel.
Cheap and nicely located when you travel from Zion NP to Bryce Canyon NP. It's about an hour drive from Zion and very near to Bryce Canyon.
Staying inside the park has the opportunity to make some extra walks, but the prices are here also a lot higher then just outside the Bryce Canyon N.P. Along the road are some motels and hotels that offer perfect lodging and further away are some large ranges that also have staying-possibilities. In all cases it is better to make reservations as Bryce Canyon N.P. is in all seasons a very popular destination.
