Stay at a $50 hotel for $250/night
This place is a joke. The hotel is dated, rooms don't have TV and the wifi is spotty. What they do have are high prices. The restaurant is a joke. $32 for a bowl of bison stew. There is a sucker born every minute. Better to stay at Rubys best western inn at the Bryce canyon entrance. Half the price and nicer rooms.

Great Location for Hiking and Views
Strict Covid protocols inside buildings at the Park. Woman at check-in was very knowledgeable about hiking in the Canyon and saved us from a steep elevation gain by changing our direction. Room was clean and typical of a hotel room in any national park, very basic. Easy stroll to any viewpoints or hiking trails from our room. Nobody should expect great WIFI in any national park as that would defeat the purpose of being there. The couple of times we wanted it, we fired up the JetPak for good access. Restaurant was take out only. Ate dinner twice. Pork chops were excellent. Bison stew had great flavor, but it the chunks of meat and potatoes were too big which made it awkward to pull them out of the stew to cut them up. Caesar salad was fresh. Trout was done as advertised with good flavor. Pork tenderloin was excellent, sweet potato mash was good, but looked a mess becuase of take out packaging. Overall, if you need great WIFI, stay elsewhere. If you hike or want to see the canyons, stay here and walk to where you need to go.

Nice And Close!
You know, few people actually stay in the Lodge. There are only four rooms. I was a bit surprised at how few rooms there were. Our experience from start to finish was great. Joni at the front desk provided a great check-in. There are a number of cabins (some pretty big neat old log cabins). But they weren’t available yet. There are two separate lodging units that are far newer than the lodge. We were in the Sunset Lodge. The room was quite nice. Big. With an outside seating area (though too cool and windy to enjoy). The room is equipped with fun furniture. Refined rustic. All the furniture is edged with oak with the bark on. The tops of tables, and the dresser are milled oak. We usually don’t like rough log furniture. But they’ve done a nice job. The room has a king bed, two end tables, a credenza with drawers, a mini-refrigerator, a microwave and coffee maker. There’s a nice table and chairs. And in the corner a comfortable stuffed chair. One of the nicer rooms we’ve stayed in.

Connectivity stinks with lots of excuses
We were grateful
To be able to get lodging in Bryce Canyon for our recent stay. We stayed in the Sunset House for the convenience of viewing the park and it’s beautiful
Surroundings.,However, the gratitude ends there. We had a room which was “rustic, but clean and well Located. While we are completely vaccinated and 2 week post vax quarantined we appreciated the COVID restrictions in place. My big. Complaint was the complete lack of connectivity in the rooms. The excuse from the concessionaire is remoteness and the age of the property. Businesses in the little town SA have managed to provide decent internet access. This company is making big bucks on their contract w/the federal government and I believe they should be investing in connectivity because in the Lodge where they are oh so happy to take your money they don’t have connectivity issues. In this day and age, we use our electronics for everything. I had to go into town to a coffee shop to download a book to read in the evening. I will continue to recommend staying in the park, but shame on the concessionaire for lack of consideration for the needs of its guests, expensive, mediocre dinner first night caused us to seek wonderful
Experiences elsewhere, especially Stone Fire Grille in Tropic, an easy drive from
Bryce. Make reservations for sure.,

Located right in the park, really nice staff, delicious food!
The title says it all. Nothing but compliments here. Very friendly and helpful staff. The canyon and trail access is right behind the hotel. Perfect location. The chef is amazing. The filets and swordfish are incredibly delish
