It was another wonderful place in USA to visit. The park has been well thought out with beautifully designated trails and look out areas to view the massive ‘HooDoos’ and stone cliffs. The park offers shuttles that run throughout the day. My husband and I took the 31/2 hour tour given each morning or afternoon. This included a guided tour given by… Read more
It was another wonderful place in USA to visit. The park has been well thought out with beautifully designated trails and look out areas to view the massive ‘HooDoos’ and stone cliffs. The park offers shuttles that run throughout the day. My husband and I took the 31/2 hour tour given each morning or afternoon. This included a guided tour given by a knowledgeable shuttle driver. Sign up at Visitor’s center before entering the park. We also had dinner in the lodge one evening. The dining room is perfect for a lovely meal after a day of hiking. Our meals were delicious and quite filling for hungry visitors. Beet salad and the pork chop were my favorites! Do not be discouraged by the commercialism outside the park, it’s the beauty that’s inside the park that will have awesome memories of your visit!😊 Read less

We were in one of the annex buildings, and our rooms (two, for a traveling party of four) were very nice, if not exceptional. The balcony gave the opportunity to sit in the open air and while the canyon was out of sight, the woods leading up to it were pretty, and peaceful.

When problems occur that seem one off, I typically ignore them in reviews of hotels. When the problems seem systemic, then I want to provide help to other travelers to avoid problems I've encountered. When I arrived at The Lodge, the clerk had no record of my reservation which had been paid in advance. The clerk told me that this was the fault of the 3rd party booking company and there was NOTHING he could do to assist. It was like: "Here's your hat. What's your hurry." This is a terrible was to begin a trip that began with twelve-hours door to door travel. Luckily for me, The Lodge had an available room so I was able to pay for a second room out of pocket but enough about that. Also, the 3rd party booking company refunded my money but enough about that. What is important here is what I learned and what I surmise. (See the very bottom for a quick review of this passable hotel in an amazingly good location.) For starters, I had NO IDEA that I was booking through a 3rd party agency. I followed a link from the Bryce Canyon National Park website to the Forever Resorts website. My best guess is that Forever Resorts places advertisements on their website. I have no idea how or why but I ended up on a website for a Swiss room finder. I thought I was doing the thing you need to do. Tip 1: Reserve by phone. Tip 2: If booking online, be very wary on where you click. While I was working with the staff at the front desk, they shared several horror stories of other travelers arriving with fully paid bookings but were absent from the Lodge's reservation system. My favorite occurred before my very eyes. A traveler arrived with a paper receipt showing a two-day reservation. The Lodge's system said only one day. The clerk, of course, blamed the 3rd party booker and explained to the frazzled travelers that they could stay for only one night. There were other stories the clerks shared with me. My conclusion is that the problem could not be fully explained by incompetent booking agencies. There may well be something wrong with The Lodge's back end. Whatever the case, Tip 3: Confirm your booking by calling The Lodge directly. You should probably also call again before you begin your travel to verify that the reservation remains in place. The attitude that the customer is wrong and the computer is right really irks me. I'd say to avoid this place but I cannot. The location, minutes by foot away from the rim of Bryce Canyon, is too good to pass up. We stayed in a motel room, which was large and well appointed. We dined in the restaurant which is okay and not too overpriced. You'll have a nice time here if you can navigate the reservation system. Read less

I booked over a year ago to make sure we got into the lodge. Well worth it. To just walk a few yards and be at the rim of canyon was spectacular. Better yet, very spotty cell service and no TVs. It was heaven.

I have mixed feelings about the cabin in which we stayed. I loved the fact that we weren’t very far from the views of the amphitheater. However, it’s a bit much to pay $238 for a cabin that lacks A/C and comfortable beds. When you share a Western cabin bed with your spouse, you feel their every move. I was only able to sleep for about 4 hours… Read more
I have mixed feelings about the cabin in which we stayed. I loved the fact that we weren’t very far from the views of the amphitheater. However, it’s a bit much to pay $238 for a cabin that lacks A/C and comfortable beds. When you share a Western cabin bed with your spouse, you feel their every move. I was only able to sleep for about 4 hours due to the beds and temperature control problems. But if these issues don’t bother you, then you’ll also be happy that there are microwaves and small refrigerators and gas fireplaces in the Western cabins. I think if I were to return to the area, I’d probably stay elsewhere due to cost and comfort. Read less
