No hassle way to fully enjoy the trails and wonders of Zion Park is to stay in the middle of it! The Lodge is wonderful, with excellent service, large rooms, and a relaxed atmosphere.

No hassle way to fully enjoy the trails and wonders of Zion Park is to stay in the middle of it! The Lodge is wonderful, with excellent service, large rooms, and a relaxed atmosphere. The true joy of very limited mobile phone service and random, very weak wifi inside the hotel, only add to the relaxation. Our room was better than we hoped. It was large, with ample storage, comfortable beds, and plenty of hot water for showers after hiking in the heat. The shuttle service stops in front of the Lodge, so it is easy to get a ride to any part of the Park you wish. Some of the hiking paths start next to or very close to the Lodge. You are in the Center, so in a few minutes you can start your hiking and enjoy the views. I recommend at least five days in Zion to really appreciate its wonder. Read less

Zion Park is an amazing place and Zion Lodge is perfectly located in the middle of it. Reception check-in was very efficient and polite. On-site shop is very well stocked.

Zion Park is an amazing place and Zion Lodge is perfectly located in the middle of it. Reception check-in was very efficient and polite. On-site shop is very well stocked. We had a room overlooking the green at the front of the hotel, which was very pretty. Once the tourists have started to thin out at the end of the day the local deer appear and stroll around eating the grass. One night we counted 12 deer on the grass outside our room. We had a balcony / terrace with a couple of arm chairs which was nice for relaxing at the end of the day. Room was spacious, bed was ok. Good recycling facilities in the room. We ate in the restaurant twice. Food was excellent, service excellent and very reasonably priced. I would recommend booking in advance because you can never tell if there's going to be a coach party all turn up at the same time.The only criticism I would have would be that it is missing a swimming pool. I would recommend stopping at this hotel if your budget stretched to it but would say that the free bus service for the park is so good that it would not be a problem to stop in Springdlae and get the bus into the park every day. That way you might also get a pool with your hotel! Read less

Unfortunately my wife was diagnosed with acute bronchitis in Las Vegas, which meant we left late afternoon for Zion National Park and arrived at around 21:30 hours. Fortunately, the Lodge is open 24 hours so there would be somebody there when we arrived. Unfortunately for us, we did not understand the instructions given by Matthew at the Lodge, so we ended up going around the campsite, then asking one of shuttle buses how to get to the Lodge (not helpful), then stopping at one of the hotels outside the Park to ask directions but they had never been to the Lodge so it was difficult. Finally, somebody said to keep to the left of the road until we got to the valley floor after crossing a bridge. This we did and saw to our left a large building with one light on. Could this be the lodge? Well why not find out and so we ventured forth parked the car and saw that the dim light was a flickering television screen. I tapped on the window and then found a door open but the next one was locked. Timidly, I said hello a couple of times but there was reply. Returning to the car and feeling that we would be sleeping in the car I suddenly saw a flashing light coming from the building. The flash light finally arrived close to me, blinding me because it was directed at my eyes. The person who was shining this bright light into my eyes turned out to be Park Ranger, who must have been a bit apprehensive as this person walking around their compound at around 22:30 hours. He announced in no uncertain terms that he was an armed Park Ranger with the power to arrest me etc. etc. I did think that this was a bit over top but then it is probably not usual to find somebody walking around at 22:30 hours so his reaction was understandable. Once he had ascertained that I was not a threat and just a dumb lost Englishman he managed to tell me how to get to the Lodge. On our arrival 30 minutes later, we met by the affable Matthew, who then handed me over to the clerk at Reception. We then had to walk quite a way with our luggage to the room but after quite an exhausting day with my wife's acute bronchitis etc. we were glad to be have arrived at a safe haven. The rooms is adequate, with everything that you need and it even had a small terrace. The Lodge itself is a striking building with plenty of seats and with a good gift shop, with many native American artefacts for sale of good quality. The breakfast was average but dinner was very good, even though the service was slow. We reserved a table for dinner but from what we could see it was not absolutely necessary. Still, just to be on the safe side I would reserve rather than having to travel into the adjoining town and look for a restaurant. Enjoyed our stay enormously. Read less

This is a beautiful lodge with a nice green area in the front. Since parking is extremely limited in the park, this location is very convenient to catch the park shuttles.

This is a beautiful lodge with a nice green area in the front. Since parking is extremely limited in the park, this location is very convenient to catch the park shuttles. Deer are continually in the area. It is also nicely situated in front of the Emerald Pool hiking trail. Our family really enjoyed the hike. There is a nice gift shop and lunch counter on site. You won’t have cell service or WiFi here due to the location in the canyon. Our AC was broken unfortunately. It was late when we got to the lodge and we didn’t want to wait for service before putting the kids to bed so we had a pretty hot night. Also the shower gel in the shower ran out. Because all bottles of soap are refillable and bolted to the wall I couldn’t just get some more soap. I had to shower with shampoo. Though we enjoyed the area, I would probably stay at the Best Western in town if I had it to do again. Read less

If you can get reservations at Zion Lodge, I recommend it. We stayed in a lodge room (they also have cabins/ cottages). It was like a motel room. We had a balcony with 2 rocking chairs and a beautiful view of the rock walls. The room was small but clean and comfortable. Microwave, fridge, coffeemaker in the room. You can walk out your door… Read more

We had a balcony with 2 rocking chairs and a beautiful view of the rock walls. The room was small but clean and comfortable. Microwave, fridge, coffeemaker in the room. You can walk out your door and it's just steps to the lodge dining room, gift shop, fast food cafe, and shuttle bus. You can start hiking early in the day because well you're already at the park! We had breakfast and dinner in the dining room. Excellent and the views as you eat outside on the deck are fabulous! You can eat indoors too of course. When you're exhausted from your hike it's nice to head straight to your room to refresh. Read less
