I don't recommend staying at the lodge. Sitting on the patio, it's a great setting, but not much more. The rooms are Ok but there was no hot water; we were told that's just a drawback to the location of our room and nothing could be done. So two days of lukewarm/cold showers. No refrigerator in the room and no ice in ice machine and soft drink… Read more

The rooms are Ok but there was no hot water; we were told that's just a drawback to the location of our room and nothing could be done. So two days of lukewarm/cold showers. No refrigerator in the room and no ice in ice machine and soft drink vending machines were half empty. Food available from Cafe for takeout was mediocre; any fast food restaurant is better. No shuttle available to the sites so we had to get up at 3a to wait in a line of cars which included if was not dominated by cars that came in that morning from outside the park. Best to stay outside of the park where hotel selection is plentiful as well as dining options. Read less

Personnel not accommodating. I felt just like they wanted to cash the money for the staying and were ready for you to leave ASAP to get money from the next customer. Check in after 4 pm, check out at 11 am but cleaning crew starts to knock on the door at 8 and even walked in while sleeping! There are many better places to choose from right before… Read more
Personnel not accommodating. I felt just like they wanted to cash the money for the staying and were ready for you to leave ASAP to get money from the next customer. Check in after 4 pm, check out at 11 am but cleaning crew starts to knock on the door at 8 and even walked in while sleeping! There are many better places to choose from right before or after the park. Everything is pretty close there anyhow. Internet also does not work. There is full WiFi strength with no internet and no phone signal. Phone calls are $3 each with house phone. We were stranded with a problem with our rental car and asked management for help either with a late check out (while waiting for a new vehicle until 2 pm) paying whatever needed or asked for an extra night, but we were denied. They wouldn’t have space to keep our luggage safe either in 103F weather. We were basically sitting out waiting from 11 am until 2 pm in heat as the restaurant or public indoor places were shut due to Covid. They could have been more accommodating or nicer considering the situation. The room was clean and nice for a mountain lodge, but outdated for the price If $260. You basically pay for a parking spot and a pass for the park. You get priority for the scenic route rather than having to be on a first come first serve basis. I was told over the phone that we could not make a reservation directly with them and I had to go online, but that is valid only for same day staying. (Wrong info) Same price online. Read less

I would highly recommend staying at this Lodge especially while the shuttles are not running in Zion due to COVID. The lodge is nestled between the Zion Canyon walls and we had an excellent view of the canyon from our patio. Many great hiking trails start or you can get to directly from the lodge.

I was very excited to stay here as it was the first time I would ever stay inside a national park. I splurged on the room since it was three times the price of my other hotel which was just outside the park in Springdale. I wish I had just spent both nights at the other hotel. It was cool walking around and seeing the wild animals on the front… Read more
I was very excited to stay here as it was the first time I would ever stay inside a national park. I splurged on the room since it was three times the price of my other hotel which was just outside the park in Springdale. I wish I had just spent both nights at the other hotel. It was cool walking around and seeing the wild animals on the front lawn but that was pretty much the only good part of the hotel. It was very dark inside and had an awful smell in the hallways. The air conditioning did not work and it was so hot in the room. We were sweating all night. I would not recommend this hotel. Stay in Springdale where hotels are plentiful and much cheaper.

5 star location, 1 star everything else Ok, I understand about Covid 19. But if you’re going to open and charge full price, offer something in return. The king bed was worn out, as was the air conditioning. The food service (takeout only) was terrible and a very limited menu. Come on Xanterra, just because you have an excuse, don’t short… Read more
5 star location, 1 star everything else Ok, I understand about Covid 19. But if you’re going to open and charge full price, offer something in return. The king bed was worn out, as was the air conditioning. The food service (takeout only) was terrible and a very limited menu. Come on Xanterra, just because you have an excuse, don’t short change your customers by offering an understaffed, second rate experience! This was easily fixable, but you took advantage of the situation and did the minimum at standard pricing! Read less
