My family stayed here this past weekend to attend a wedding. Since I am physically disabled and have significant mobility restrictions and issues, we had requested a disabled access room. At other facilities in the past, these rooms have included low, easy to climb onto beds and bathrooms with bars and walk-in showers with built-in benches and lowered shower heads.... More

This hotel was one of the cleanest and most comfortable we have been in since our vacation started. The room is huge and has complete amenities. We have no complaints and wish there were more like this one.

Service was great, restaurant was a little pricey for the size of serving. Wish there was more places to eat at, there was only 2. It was very convenient location for what we wanted to visit. The air conditioner was very loud but cooled the room. The grounds of the hotel was very well kept and the room was clean.

Neat Hotel with great staff. Great location between Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. Easy access to Grand Canyon. If you are going to visit southwest Utah, this is a great location with the intersection of two major roads.

Comfortable, clean, quiet, good staff. I had one issue with my reservation but the staff member fixed it quickly. I will definitely stay here again. Everything worked and the pool area was well kept. I'm not sure what else I need to write, but apparently I need to write two hundred characters or I can't submit this.

What a great place to stay if you're visiting zion national park! The rooms were extremely clean, moderately sized , and had a patio out back with chairs for lingering at night. The pool and hot tub are outdoors where you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The only drawback was no free breakfasts, but the restaurant on site is amazing... More

We booked into here because this was the only place that we could get near Zion on Labor Day weekend. What a lucky find! The rooms are huge, immaculate, and architecturally inspired. We had a room with a patio and a view of the golf course. We didn't play but this place has its own charming little golf course with... More

Very nice hotel, we stayed here twice on our 8 day trip. Clean, good comfortable rooms great staff. Will stay here again next time we go thru. Very handy for our route and the pie in the café is beyond belief. Terrific and the staff members are very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

Thunderbird is a great value situated between two wonderful National Parks. Born to service highway traffic WAY back in the day, this 'comfort' stop is a great place to pull over and rest for a few days with nice rooms, friendly staff, a golf course (didn't play), and restaurant. Very 'Southwest' inspired. its a bit off the main I-15 corridor,... More
