Watching the sun rise over Bryce Canyon is an unforgettable experience, and here you will be just 2 minutes’ walk from Sunrise Point, where everyone gathers at dawn; also, 2 minutes’ walk to the Queen’s Garden trail, the Navajo Loop, the Rim Trail, and a shuttle bus to everywhere else. I want to emphasize, though, that location is not the only great thing here. We stayed in the “Sunset Unit” in a modern motel room in handsome earth colors, with a porch, microwave, refrigerator, and other conveniences. Peaceful setting in a forest, away from traffic. The main lodge, adjacent to the Sunset Unit is a grand old hotel (with restaurant) and the staff is helpful and friendly. A nice “camper store” 5 minutes’ walk away.

Perfect Location - easy access to attractions

The very best thing about the Lodge is its location. In addition to daily activities, we enjoyed being able to walk to Sunrise Point and Sunset Point at the appropriate times. That is not nearly as easy to do if you are staying outside of the park. We were not in the main lodge but one of the two nearby two-story hotel-like structures. The room was rustic and very comfortable with a balcony looking into the woods. One thing to be aware of - you are definitely off the grid here - no TV, and the wi-fi is really spotty and poor. The front desk said it was a coverage issue, but I think it was really a capacity issue - it worked well in the middle of the night when no one was on it, but was always bouncing connections during the day and evening. From our room, we were able to walk to the General Store, to dinner at the main lodge, and also to the evening ranger talks at the main lodge. On one night, the talk was on astronomy, and they even set up several large telescopes at Sunset point to be able to look at the starts. The dinner menu had about 8 entrees but was absolutely fine. We had entree salads and the trout. Was it 5-star? Maybe not, but definitely good enough and super convenient. Loved, loved, loved the location and Bryce overall. Many options for day hikes.

The Location gets a Five. The Cleanliness gets a Two.

We stayed in one of the cabins for three nights and absolutely loved the cabin! Very cozy and amazing to be right next to the rim of Bryce Canyon. We put the fire on at night and enjoyed the quiet evenings with the star filled sky. As others have mentioned there is really no internet service, except in the lobby which is spotty. I can live without internet and TV when I am on vacation, so that factor was actually a plus for me! However, for me cleanliness and comfort is the most important factor when choosing accommodations. The cabin was not very clean. The towels almost seemed like someone had used them, or they were not laundered properly? The sheets too. One day they did not even come in to "clean" the room and when we contacted the concierge they almost made it seem like it was our fault because we had a Do Not Disturb sign on in the morning while we showered. Placing a Do Not Disturb sign on your door at night until you shower and leave in the morning should be no different than any hotel that I have ever stayed at. I have never had an issue with my room "not" being cleaned. On the day that they did not show up to clean our room we had thrown our towels on the floor, so we finally agreed to have someone just bring us some towels and empty our trash. Since they really did not "clean" the rooms this was not a big sacrifice, just an inconvenience and slightly annoying due to the way it was handled. These towels did not look like the dirty ones we had gotten before, but they were covered with lint. So we had fuzz all over us after our showers. Not a light fuzz. Chunks of fuzz. Fuzz snow everywhere. The cabin overall was very dusty. I had something roll under the bed, only to see that there were huge dust balls as if it had not been vacuumed under the beds for months? With all that said, I do recommend staying here, just for the experience of the location. I am hopeful that with enough feedback about the cleanliness of the rooms/cabins that management and housekeeping will understand the importance of providing clean accommodations for their guests; along with good customer service. I understand this is a tourist destination and maybe there is not a concern about repeat customers. However, as a Las Vegan, I would definitely want to stay at the cabins again if improvements were made. It is a short trip for us to visit Bryce Canyon. We will wait to stay at the lodge when TA reviews confirm that linens have improved, along with the cleanliness of the rooms. I hope to be back some day!!

Wonderful wintertime experience

The Sunset Unit that's open during the winter is a great place to stay. You're right there in the park and a few minutes walk from the rim. The rooms are very nice, the staff was super friendly and the price is very reasonable. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed to getaway in the snowy winter wonderland that Bryce becomes.

Spend the extra and stay somewhere else.

This hotel was very sad. Rooms were plain and in need of a good cleaning. Linens were thin and the sheets didn’t fit the bed and wouldn’t stay on. Found ourselves waking up at night sleeping on the bare mattress. We stayed four nights and two of those days the room wasn’t cleaned. We had to call the front desk and ask for clean towels. Spend the extra $$ and stay somewhere else.
