Owned by the National Park Service, the Lodge at Bryce Canyon provides rustic cabins and hotel-style accommodations inside Bryce Canyon National Park. The next most convenient option is to stay in one of the park's gateway communities.

Various other lodging options are available along Route 12, and you'll find a few more on Route 89 west of the park.
