Location is great
We stayed one night in a cabin with two queen beds in July 2021. The best part of staying at Bryce Lodge is obviously the location. Our cabin was about a five min walk from the rim trail and the amazing amphitheater of hoodoos. It was perfect for popping up there for sunrise/sunset. It was also incredibly quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed sitting on our small porch and just listening to the stillness.
The room was pretty good. There is no AC but even staying in July, it was not hot at all. It did reach the 80s during the day, but the room was surprisingly cool especially with the fan and windows open. We actually didn't even open the windows or turn on the fan overnight. The bathroom was a pretty good size and across from the bathroom was a second room that was a sort of closet/second sink room. It was nice to have a sink to use while your partner took a shower.
Two things that detracted from my review: One was that there was no way (that we could figure out) to turn the light on the ceiling fan off without turning the whole fan off. When we turned off the light, it would come back on a second later and did that over and over again until we finally just turned off the whole fan.
Secondly, there were dead mice left in our room in the mouse traps. I am not upset that there are mice in the cabin. This happens in the woods. But this is something that should be caught during the room cleaning phase and the full traps should be removed. When we noticed and called, we told them we had two traps that were full. They only took one. So when we came back and saw the other was still there, we called again and it took well over an hour to get someone out to take care of it.

If Not For the Location……
Not much to say here. Great location… lodge probably hasn’t been updated in decades . Cabins are poorly appointed, no real place to eat on the premises, no wireless service in rooms. Rooms are dark , dingy and not as clean as you’d like it. If your around for more than a few days stay elsewhere . If you only have a day or two I guess it’s ok. My advice …. Spend ten million , close down for a year , reopen with a bang and increase the prices …. You will get it all back…

A convenient base for exploring Bryce
We really enjoyed our stay at the Lodge at Bryce Canyon. You can't beat the location - a quick walk and you're at the rim of the canyon. It's breathtaking. The front desk staff - especially Donna - were extremely helpful in orienting us to the park and recommending stops along the scenic drive. The dining hall staff were patient and efficient, and the food was fresh and delicious, especially at dinnertime.
We loved sitting on our our little porch after a day of exploring.
Our room was big enough to accomodate our family of three. Be aware that there is no AC or television, and WiFi isn't great. You can get a fan to help with the heat.

Stay here if you can, the location is fantastic for Bryce.
The lodge rooms are nothing to brag about, but they are more than adequate. This is all about location. You will be 100 yards from the main rim trail if you stay here, vs. a car ride away if you stay in the town. It's hard to get a reservation here, but keep trying. People do cancel, especially a few days ahead. There is no AC (breeze at night was fine, and this was during the West Coast heat wave), and there is no TV. But access to the park is worth any inconvenience on amenities, if you plan to hike. You can get on the trails super early and beat the crowds competing for parking spaces.

Location, Location, Location
The room was great! There was a little porch from our room so we could sit outside. The temps went down at night so it wasn't hot. We could get the shuttle from the main lodge. It was quiet. Best part, it was only a few hundred yards from the rim of the amphitheater. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There were still some closures because of Covid.
