The hotel has been refurbished with fairly new furniture and new bathroom fixtures. But be warned - there is no free breakfast like most Best Western facilities have. And the restaurant associated with the hotel is over priced and did not serve decaf coffee. The rooms have a musty smell. Some of the in-room Keurig coffee makers do not work... More

I was out this way for a trip to Zion, Best Friends Animal Society, and the Grand Canyon. The lodge is very convenient to Best Friends and about 2 hours from the GC. Getting to Zion is a bit of a hike as it's not far distance wise, but you have to drive all the way through the windy, twisty,... More

Our family of 7 stayed at the Thunderbird Lodge 7/27 & 7/28/15 for our visit to Zion National Park. It was an excellent choice and very reasonable. The staff was very courteous and informative about the area. The rooms were very nice and clean. The restaurant onsite has a very good breakfast menu. Highly recommend the Lodge.

Nice hotel near the Zion, Bryce and north rim Grand Canyon. Very friendly staff. Exellent room. Restaurant was good (reconmend the spare ribs). At the windows they have sugarliquidjars for humming birds, nice to watch.

After viewing the narrows and Zion's National Park. This was a great end to the day. Very clean 10+ and the western décor was an added touch to the visit to the west. The food in the restaurant was well prepared and was followed with great ho-made pie. Golf course well maintained. Clean pool area and grounds. If you are... More

Excellent hotel. Everything was very clean. Bed was super comfortable. All furnishings were either new or close to it. Great place to stay, would stay again without a doubt! Easy to get to, well lit and always felt safe.
