Ruby’s Inn offers activities and convenience.
Visit Utah's National Parks
Psst. We have a couple secrets to share. If you're looking to beat the crowds in Bryce, stay at Ruby's Inn, the closest lodging to the park. It's been open for 102 years but its rooms were completely refurbished in the past year. Choose from three hotels, a campground or a tipi.
Plus, if you stay here in the off-season, you avoid the crowds and can take advantage of off-season room rates.
"If you're flexible with your dates, you can have a quality national park experience for a lot less money," says Lance Syrett, general manager of Ruby’s Inn, noting your rate could drop from $250 peak rate to an off-season $90.
Make your basecamp at Ruby's Inn to be convenient to Bryce Canyon, Zion and Grand Canyon national parks.
Founded by rancher Ruby Syrett in 1916, this longtime landmark is still family-owned and is the only one that offers a free shuttle service to Bryce Canyon National Park viewpoints.

Tours and Rentals
If you want to take a break from sightseeing, rent a bike and go mountain biking or take the bike shuttle to the park to ride on the paved roads. Or go horseback riding, taking some of the same trails Butch Cassidy rode as an outlaw more than a century ago.
If you want to gain some altitude, get an aerial view of the stunning landscapes around you by taking a helicopter ride or airplane scenic flight to a variety of destinations. You can also take a guided or self-guided ATV tour in the Bryce Canyon City area. Learn more about these activities on our Utah website.
