Hotel has a original history as a homestead. Fun decor and great restaurant. Very peaceful stay along a green golf course, Hotel was just what we needed after a day long visit to the Grand Canyon North Rim. Clean and well kept.

Our stay was awesome! We arrived late and the restaurant was still open and the food was very good! The room we stayed in was right off the golf course. It was spotless and the bed was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We like the hotel, stayed here for the third time already and were not disappointed. The location is great, in a beautiful setting, between Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. The North Rim of Grand Canyon is also not too far away. The buildings are in typical American Motel style, the rooms large and clean, with wooden furniture. Prices are... More

You are a man that has stayed enough to know what you are talking about! Thank you so much! A quick note for the guy with the coffee pot problem in a past post. It seems that a lot of people are struggling to figure out how to work the new fancy Keurig Coffee Makers. Just call the desk and... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the clean room and friendly staff. The resturant was an added bonus as we had been working out of a cooler on this road trip. Good food, and happy service made all the difference as we pulled in late to stay the night. We all commented that we would stay here again if/when we come... More

Here our staff is like family in this family owned and ran hotel. In such a small community we keep the same employees just about forever, then we hire their children and then their grandchildren. I am glad you enjoyed the pool. It was just remodeled this summer. That your group would stay again is the nicest compliment we could... More

We loved everything about this hotel except the in-room coffee maker would not work. We would stay here anytime we are in the area. Rooms were large and clean. The restaurant was a great place for food. The wait staff were very friendly and took good care of us. We cant say enough good things about this wonderful hotel and... More

We just got brand new keurig coffee makers in all the rooms. I sure hope we did not miss your room, or that one of those expensive units would have broke already. Next time let the desk know and they would have either brought you hot already made coffee or got you a new coffee maker. Thank you again for... More

We were worried pulling into the parking lot after staying at the Best Western Squire Inn. We had a great time at the Squire and Tuscayan is such a quaint (albeit touristy) village...So when we pulled into the parking lot of the Thunderbird, our hearts sank. Where are we?... Thankfully our worst fears were disspelled once we met the staff,... More

This hotel was very pleasant. The rooms were nice with sliding glass doors leading to a patio overlooking the golf course or the pool area. The pool was nice - went for an excellent swim under a full moon. The hotel and restaurant seemed a bit expensive but the location was great. It was a wonderful drive into Zion National... More

I hope you do get to return and play some golf. It's a great little golf course and it has quite an interesting history behind it. Thank you for your review. The restaurant has other management, and there is a place of TA to review it there. More
