This hotel is pricey. But, you are paying for location. It is nice to be able to drive your car into the park and not have to take an additional bus ride or pay extra for parking. That being said, you still have to ride the buses to get around inside the park. Because of this Zion was not my favorite. There were so many people and a lot of… Read more
This hotel is pricey. But, you are paying for location. It is nice to be able to drive your car into the park and not have to take an additional bus ride or pay extra for parking. That being said, you still have to ride the buses to get around inside the park. Because of this Zion was not my favorite. There were so many people and a lot of trails are closed...I digress... this is about the hotel. It was clean but a little dated. There was a coffee maker and fridge. It was nice to sit outside the front of the lodge in the rocking chairs after the throngs of people left for the day. It was also nice to get up early and be on the trail to Angel's landing before everyone else got there. If you are going to Zion, I recommend staying in the Lodge. Even with the high price, it makes the visit less of a hassle. Read less

We were able to get into the lodge for one night at the last minute. Should plan WAY in advance if you want to stay. We were in a wonderfully historic rustic cabin, but very comfortable extras (gas fireplace, Kuerig machine). Right where the bus through the canyon stops for visitors. Adequate restaurant on site. No need to travel in and out of… Read more
We were able to get into the lodge for one night at the last minute. Should plan WAY in advance if you want to stay. We were in a wonderfully historic rustic cabin, but very comfortable extras (gas fireplace, Kuerig machine). Right where the bus through the canyon stops for visitors. Adequate restaurant on site. No need to travel in and out of park. In fact the ONLY way you can park beyond where the buses into the canyon start. Just a breathtaking location. This is the place to stay if you want to really FEEL like you have visited the park! Read less

We stayed in a suite with a king-sized bed, and the room was well maintained and lovely. The view from our balcony was great. We paid $280 a night for two nights, and I am sure there are better values in Springdale, but the convenience and connection to the park one feels when staying here made it worth it for us.

We stayed in a suite with a king-sized bed, and the room was well maintained and lovely. The view from our balcony was great. We paid $280 a night for two nights, and I am sure there are better values in Springdale, but the convenience and connection to the park one feels when staying here made it worth it for us. The room was clean and well-appointed. The wi-fi was basically nonexistent, but the lodge lobby has a computer if needed. Zion Lodge’s great location in the valley was the perfect jumping off point for hiking adventures during our too-short stay. We did not receive a parking permit by mail after making our internet booking, but the ranger at the entrance helped us out with this. It is intentionally kept very dark on the grounds between the rooms and the lobby/restaurant/gift shop area, and so I recommend bringing a small flashlight in your bag. Read less

We stayed 2 nights in Cabin 524. The room was 12’x15’ and had a coffeemaker, hair dryer, refrigerator, 2 chairs, a desk w/chair and an A/C + heater unit. There was a gas fireplace, but they only operate during winter. The bathroom had a tub, toilet & sink, but across the hall there was another sink with lots of counter space. All the amenities… Read more

All the amenities are in wall dispensers so bring bar soap if you don’t like to use a gel. The one problem was the bed. We were supposed to get a queen size. Some one’s ruler must be broken because it was a double. I could’ve/should’ve complained, but it was late and we were tired so we lived with it. Read less

I reserved a room at this LODGE as I was hoping that it would meet my expectations of being able to quickly enter and walk about the Canyon... NOT. The lodge room was musty and had a strong smell of the thousands of tourists that have stayed there since it's inception. During my visit there, evidently the countries of India, Germany, and Japan must have been on their yearly vacation outings. Germans in particular seem to think that it is their right to do whatever they desire in their travels abroad as i observed them routinely defacing trees,stonework,etc in the park. Mattresses in the room were poorly made,smelled of body odor, and were impossible to sleep on and undoubtedly thousands have tried. There is a lack of refurbishment at this establishment that is astounding for an Aramark operation controlled(?) by the federal government, Regardless, the furbishments of the lodge are poor and for $200+ a night you don't expect to camp out. The lodge provides a sticker for you to enter the park in a private vehicle . You still have to take the buses to get to the last few miles into the canyon from the lodge, a last few miles that so happen to have the best vistas in the entire canyon...accidental ...don't think so. All in all ,a very unpleasant situation there in Zion and one that I am not likely to subject myself to ever again. The canyon itself is ordinary. I have been there two times before and was hoping that things had improved. Disappointed they hadn't. Read less
