We stayed in the Lodge in Zion National Park and we are so glad we did. You are right in the middle of the Park. There is a shuttle stop at the lodge. We did not have to wait outside the park for a shuttle to get it. They do not allow you to drive your car into the park unless you are staying at the lodge. They are very strict now with COVID as to… Read more
We stayed in the Lodge in Zion National Park and we are so glad we did. You are right in the middle of the Park. There is a shuttle stop at the lodge. We did not have to wait outside the park for a shuttle to get it. They do not allow you to drive your car into the park unless you are staying at the lodge. They are very strict now with COVID as to how many can be in the park right now at least riding the shuttle.. They only sell a specific number of shuttle tickets per day. The lodge was very nice. Clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again. The convenience was well worth it. Read less

After reading some of the reviews, my expectations were low but I found the room in the watchman building clean, comfortable and nicely designed. The deck faced the cliffs and was a peaceful place to sit. You can easily hike to the grotto and emerald pools right from the hotel.

After reading some of the reviews, my expectations were low but I found the room in the watchman building clean, comfortable and nicely designed. The deck faced the cliffs and was a peaceful place to sit. You can easily hike to the grotto and emerald pools right from the hotel. The shuttle bus stops right outside and you have to take it (or rent bikes) to get north of the lodge. The restaurant is take out cafeteria food - nothing fancy - but not bad and convenient. Overall, I thought it was wonderful to stay within the park. Read less

Stunning location in the heart of the park. Nice cabin. Very clean. Staff was nice. Once staff member, in error, told us we could not grill with a Coleman gas grill with shutoff valve. A lodge manager and ranger later confirmed this was a mistake but nothing was done to compensate us for $200 of steak we had to throw out.

Cabin was very dirty and we didn’t feel safe here (Covid). Toilet looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in weeks and there was an accumulation of gross brown grime in the corners of the bathroom. Also, right now, most reputable Hotels, are leaving a 24 hour period in between guests, but this place isn’t. People would check out in the morning… Read more
Cabin was very dirty and we didn’t feel safe here (Covid). Toilet looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in weeks and there was an accumulation of gross brown grime in the corners of the bathroom. Also, right now, most reputable Hotels, are leaving a 24 hour period in between guests, but this place isn’t. People would check out in the morning housekeeping would spend about 30 minutes in the room and then by afternoon more guests had checked into the same room. The floor is wood and creeks loudly when you walk on it, also there were dust bunnies in all 4 corners. It seems as if all the cabins have adjoining rooms and the walls are so thin you can hear whole conversations. Like I said in the title, the only reason to stay here is that it is just a short walk to the shuttle pick up and there are a couple of trails directly across from the lodge. Just as an FYI, if you get a shuttle pass and you can only get it for the afternoon, it doesn’t matter, because everyone that stays at the lodge can board the shuttle at any time. Our shuttle pass was for 12 noon, but we were able to catch a 10 AM shuttle. Read less

I was fortunate enough to spend 2 nights at the lodge in a 2 queen bed room, in September.

I was fortunate enough to spend 2 nights at the lodge in a 2 queen bed room, in September. I wanted to stay at the lodge to be better able to see the park at a relaxed pace, and have a place to return to during the day. I was very pleased to find the room was much more spacious then most mid priced hotel chains, and did come with a small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker,(even though some of the reviews, and hotel info said that was not part of the amenities). With the required, ticketed shuttle service as the only way to get to many of the hikes in the park, and no in/out privileges, if you stayed in Springdale, staying at the lodge was great. I got up early and was able to hike part of the narrows, then come back and do the emerald pools after a rest, for example. Of an evening it was great sitting on the rooms porch and watch the shadows on the mountains, as the sun went down, and the deers gracing on the lawn. I did run into Springdale late in the afternoon to pick up a few things, but that was only a 15 min trip, and got to see the magnificent view down the scenic drive. So I would really recommend spending the extra $$$ to enjoy the park if you can get a room for a couple of nights. But remember you still have to get a shuttle ticket to get to the narrows, unless you want to hike the 4 miles. See view from room of the parking lot, if you look close. Read less
