My wife and I had a wonderful two nights at this lodge. We ate there as well and we enjoyed talking to the wait staff because they live all over the country and come for the summer. We figure March was much less crowded and we can only guess how much more crowded it may get in the summer but go, and stay in the lodge if you can afford it.

The lodge is in canyon and near the shuttle . Parking is plentiful. We stayed in the cabins which were great. Very quiet and secluded but nothing fancy we had two sinks and one shower which worked well. The internet is non existent and you will have to walk to the lobby for cell phone or data coverage and even there not great. No Tv in the… Read more

Maid service was great and the front desk folks were great. Read less

Be aware that what you gain in quaintness you lose in soundproof and amenities. The Internet is sporadic and slow, the bathroom is sparse in countertop. The heater in the bathroom didn’t work. Lighting is low. But the front porch of each room is lovely. Wild turkeys walked the grass in front of the lodge. Being in the park at night is also… Read more

And the park is the real meaning of the word Awesome. Read less

Of course the location is great, but Xanterra, which is the company that manages these historic properties, doesn't do a good job. I have now stayed at 4 of there locations (Grand Canyon El Tovar, Bryce, and Yellowstone Snow Lodge being the others), and I can tell you this is by design from what I can see-they do not have to improve because they… Read more
Of course the location is great, but Xanterra, which is the company that manages these historic properties, doesn't do a good job. I have now stayed at 4 of there locations (Grand Canyon El Tovar, Bryce, and Yellowstone Snow Lodge being the others), and I can tell you this is by design from what I can see-they do not have to improve because they have no competition, having essentially a monopoly within the park. Of those that I have stayed in, Zion was the worst. Let me start with the room. I had a cute cabin with a fireplace. It had a queen bed that was not comfortable. The floor was dirty, the bath came without the shower gel, and the room attendant left us without coffee one morning (which they did send out to us). You will not have WiFi, even in the lobby. Now, in a cheap hotel, all of that except the cleanliness could be excused. But these properties aren't cheap. My suggestion would be to stay in town at one of the many far superior products available outside the gate. If you are a hotel guest, you aren't allowed to travel freely in the park anyway-like everyone else, you must use the shuttle bus, not your private car, to access much of the park, negating some of the value of staying in the park. Maybe in the case of the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone it's worth it to stay at one of these poorly managed properties because you save a lot of drive time into the heart of the park. But Zion (and neighboring Bryce) are NOT large, and you only save at most 15 minutes staying inside the gate vs a much better hotel for less money outside. Read less

We were on our way home to Iowa and called on the chance they would have a room for a one night stay and they did! We had a cabin. The room was very spacious. Two double beds, a desk and chair, and a gas fireplace which was a perfect touch to an already perfect cabin. The bathroom has a shower/tub and toilet in a room. Then the sink was in a… Read more
We were on our way home to Iowa and called on the chance they would have a room for a one night stay and they did! We had a cabin. The room was very spacious. Two double beds, a desk and chair, and a gas fireplace which was a perfect touch to an already perfect cabin. The bathroom has a shower/tub and toilet in a room. Then the sink was in a separate area across a small hallway. Also had a microwave and refrigerator. The cabin was updated and absolutely prefect. Our rate included breakfast. It was a buffet and very nicely done. A Natinal Park property is an honor to stay in! I have never ever been disappointed! The setting was peaceful and stunningly beautiful! The stars at night were a spectacle of glitter and twinkling! Spent the next day exploring the park....the day there did not satisfy us only made us be sure to return, Read less
