For our second visit to Zion, we decided to stay at a cabin inside the park and are so glad we did. It's so nice to be able to drive part way down the scenic drive and be in the park early and late without dealing with shuttles. Our cabin had one queen bed, which was a bit snug, but that is what I booked, so no complaints. I do wish we lucked out… Read more
For our second visit to Zion, we decided to stay at a cabin inside the park and are so glad we did. It's so nice to be able to drive part way down the scenic drive and be in the park early and late without dealing with shuttles. Our cabin had one queen bed, which was a bit snug, but that is what I booked, so no complaints. I do wish we lucked out with a better view from our porch, but it did have a nice bench to sit on. In the future, I might try a lodge room as they seemed to have much larger balconies than the cabins did porches. There is a full bathroom and then also a second room with a second sink, which is nice when getting ready with two people. As others have mentioned, no TV and basically no WiFi. We were not able to make phone calls from our cabin and did drive to the visitor center to check in at home, which was not a big deal. The perk is definitely the location. Both nights, we walked over to the green lawn and had a drink on one of the benches there while watching the deer graze on the grass. It's also walking distance to the main lodge building with a dining room and a grab and go type place plus a gift shop. You can also walk across the street to hike Emerald Pools or walk a half mile down on the Grotto Trail to reach Angels Landing, Kayenta, etc. The lodge rooms do have TV, so if that's important, I'd book one of those instead of a cabin. The only thing I wish Zion Lodge had on-site was laundry. You have to go into Springdale to do laundry. Read less

We enjoyed our recent stay at Zion National Park Lodge. Our room was clean and big enough to accomodate our family of three. WiFi was very slow (which was most frustrating to our teenager). The location is amazing - we could walk to the Emerald and Grotto trails, and easily catch the shuttle to other trails within the park. There were reasonable… Read more
We enjoyed our recent stay at Zion National Park Lodge. Our room was clean and big enough to accomodate our family of three. WiFi was very slow (which was most frustrating to our teenager). The location is amazing - we could walk to the Emerald and Grotto trails, and easily catch the shuttle to other trails within the park. There were reasonable options for everyone at dinnertime, and the staff ably managed the current ordering process (i.e., no sit down service - order up front, and have your meal taken out, or delivered to your table.) Definitely recommend staying here when visiting Zion. Read less

Lucky enough to get a last minute reservation. Staying at the lodge is worth the money simply because Zion had become so crowded that it isn't very enjoyable to park way out and take a series of shuttle buses into the park. The lodge is close to some great trailheads and quiet, surrounded by incredible natural beauty. Slow WiFi, but that's not why… Read more

The lodge is close to some great trailheads and quiet, surrounded by incredible natural beauty. Slow WiFi, but that's not why you're here. Cabin was rustic, but clean and comfortable. Lodge has two dining options and a gift store. Check is at 11am, but you can use the special parking pass to start the whole day and explore the park. Read less

We stayed in a cabin for 4 nights, and wow, was it worth it! We booked literally a year in advance, prices are cheaper than most of the hotels out in town and you are in a key location right in the park. The cabin was clean, comfy, and air conditioned. We loved it! (for those complaining about wifi- it's a national park!)

If you want to hike in Zion, there are big advantages to staying here. You can only travel within Zion by shuttle, but if you are staying at the Lodge, you are already into the park and can circumvent a LOT of the shuttling. The lodge is perfectly comfortable, not fancy in any way, but fine. If your goal is to hike the most popular trails in… Read more
If you want to hike in Zion, there are big advantages to staying here. You can only travel within Zion by shuttle, but if you are staying at the Lodge, you are already into the park and can circumvent a LOT of the shuttling. The lodge is perfectly comfortable, not fancy in any way, but fine. If your goal is to hike the most popular trails in Zion, you want to stay here to get an early start. Keep trying the reservation site; eventually I got our nights. If you only want to see Zion by shuttle, then staying outside the park should be fine. Read less
