North Campground Bryce: not the best but what you have

We were trying to make the best of the campground. It wasn't the greatest but we had three nights to spend there so why not try and enjoy it for what it was. Unfortunately on our last night we were forced into our tent early due to an impending storm and huge drop in temperature. We were leaving the next day so were trying to get a good night's sleep but there was a, incredibly noisy family having what must have been a last night in Bryce party. To make matters worse, they kept walking right through our camping spot to use the nearby restroom and kept up a load banter while doing it! What was really odd to us is that they were German-speaking so instead of the typical loud American stereotype to fall back on, we were left realizing that every nationality has it's good and bad eggs.

The campground at Bryce National Park isn't amongst the best in the National Park system but that doesn't seem to hurt its popularity. Since most people spend only one night in what is comparatively speaking a small park, one can usually get a spot if you arrive relatively early as someone is likely to be leaving. The spots are not well-spaced and there seems to be precious little shade. It's a good thing it's at a high elevation and cooler than surrounding Utah parks. Restrooms are okay but not nearly as nice as say The Grand Canyon's. The North Campground does have direct walking access to the Rim Trail so it is convenient. Prices were a typical $15 per night so not a bargain considering the lack of atmosphere and space provided. Showers are available for $2 at the nearby general store.

reason to camp? To get on the trail early.

Ruby's: Hobson's choice?

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.

Mariana Inn: Many inexpensive hotels in Panguitch

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.

Bryce Country Cabins: Cute, Cozy Cabins

Of all of the 6 hotels we stayed at on our Utah trip, Bryce Country Cabins was my hands down favorite. The cabins were warm and comfortable and absolutely adorable. The beds were wonderfully soft, perfect after a long day of hiking and exploring. We were also quite fond of the owners cats who would come and greet us every time we returned "home".
We loved relaxing on the porch. (they would keep us company there as well)

A fridge, microwave and coffeepot are provided if you would like to have breakfast at the cabin as we did. You can get groceries over at Ruby's.
We did not get to use them, but there were picnic areas just outside the cabins.

A hairdryer is also provided.

Bryce Pioneer Village: CAbins are the In Thing to Stay Here

The cottage served the purpose of having full kitchen facilities and a TV. They also have a continental breakfast, medicore as it is, for pancakes and juice and cereals. The place is about 30-40 years old, but has been upgraded for some amenities. They do take tour buses, so make sure you got a place-and quite one.

The cottage I got was equipped with a full kitchen, a living room and bedroom. The cottages can connect so you could have two "suites" together for more sleeping quarters. The accomodations meet my specs. It was a good location in the little town of Tropic. That is about 10 miles from Bryce park entrance. Besides Ruby's Inn, right by the park-which I think is overrated and overpriced-there are a couple of other places closer to the park entrance. A lot of places in the area are "cabin" looking for the theme of being in the out country.
The price of $65 a nite plus tax is the better deal around this area. There are maybe 6-7 cottages, dual sides, and a string of rooms for another 20 places.

Stone Canyon Inn: A Great B&B in Tropic

I stayed here in 2003 and in 2005. This a very modern B&B run by a family. They have added cabins and I rented one of those for my last stay. This is a very convient location for Bryce or some areas of the Grand Staircase.

This has become very poplular place, make reservations well in advance.

This nestled up against Bryce. You're about a mile off RT 12 and it is a beautiful spot to sit on the deck during the Sunset.

Rubys Inn: In the beginning...

Reuben Syrett, better known as Ruby founded this hotel, motel, campground or rather pitched a tent in the canyons and started bringing tourists into this area in 1919, and now Rubys Inn is really the only place to stay in Bryce Canyon, altho there are other lodges dotted around.
This is more like a holiday resort with a huge ranchlike reception, enormous dining rooms and individual lodges of two floors housing approx 20 good sized double rooms. Each lodge has its own parking...we were lucky to be on the ground floor and parked outside our window!
As Bryce Canyon is very isolated, Rubys Inn caters for everyone. A large gift shop and grocery store for the campers, a burger cafe, buffet breakfast or dinner, and an a la carte dinner area too.
Tour desks line the reception and the shuttle bus stops outside every 10 minutes.

Rooms were excellent. Big and airy, clean and comfortable with coffee making facilities, and of course its just on the edge of the canyons so views are plentiful.

Ruby's Inn: Ruby has a Monopoly

I did not stay here, mainly because of the price and the arm twisting Ruby does to get you to stay here. Mr. Ruby kept buying ground until he got a full blow retail complex to serve the tourists.

They have many gift shops, gas, motel, convenience store, all in same location right by Bryce entrance. To boot you can stay in an Indian looking tent-wigwam.

Ruby's Inn: Ruby's Inn- It's Right There

We usually just day trip to Bryce. During other trips we've stayed at a B&B in Tropic. For this trip I decided to stay in Bryce to enjoy the Sunset and relax a bit. Ruby's surprised me by being nice clean and comfortable. I think it's a little pricey but that's by SW Utah standards. In truth the convenience
more than made up for the cost.

The food is an issue here. I did not try the main restaurant because I'm not big on buffet. We ate in the diner and it was just adequate. To my mind it doesn't cost that much more to serve good food. Neither time we ate there was it very good, a dinner and breakfast. No excuse to serve a luke warm chicken sandwich.

Location, location, location!

North Campground: Camping Within the Park

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.

Bryce View Lodge: Cheap Accomodations outside Bryce Canyon

We chose this place because of its location right outside the park and since it was inexpensive. Unfortunately, outside of these 2 qualities this facility really wasn't very nice. We were there in April and it was still a bit cold and it was also raining very heavily. The rooms were very drafty, the door lock was broken, the bedding were dirty, and the folks at the front desk were less than hospitable.

The prices are very inexpensive in comparison to other locations around the park and within a few miles. This price also allows for access to some amenities across the street like swimming pool and hot tub.

Bryce View Lodge: Great Central Location for the National Park

We had a one night stay here in June 2010.

The hotel is in Bryce Canyon village and is just across the road from Ruby's General Store.

It's more of a motel rather than a hotel, so don't expect too many facilities. However, the price was right and the location suited us down the ground, as it was a short drive to Bryce Canyon National Park.

We had a room only, no breakfast included. You can get all the supplies you need at Ruby's General Store.

Harold's Place & Restaurant: Nice place, good sleep, good food!

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)
