My husband and I arrived here after a 120 mile detour because Zion was closed due to dangerous weather conditions. Maureen greeted us with open arms and couldn't have done more to cheer us up after we had not been able to visit Bryce Canyon also! Could not fault anything about this place. I did think it very odd to... More

My husband and I stayed overnight at the Desert Thistle on a recent trip to Zion. Maureen and her husband Werner were warm and welcoming hosts. They have created an absolutely beautiful environment, and really want you to enjoy it. Maureen's pictures do not do justice to the beautiful décor throughout her showcase home---but check out the pictures posted by... More

The house amazing and the rooms are very comfortable. The owners of the hotel immediately made us feel like family. It's a short drive to the national park and all the shops and restaurants in Springdale. Breakfast is provided in the form of a voucher for Wildcat Willies or Oscars both in Springdale, it's a system that worked well.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary last March. The price is unbeatable, especially for the quality service. The house is wonderfully decorated and also kept very tidy. The hosts are friendly and hospitable. They were even nice enough to upgrade our room. I cannot recommend this place enough!

My girlfriend and I stayed here as we were passing through the area. The hosts are extremely gracious and go the extra mile to make you feel as if you are at home and comfortable. The house and the bedroom we stayed in are decorated extravagantly and tastefully. I highly recommend staying at the Desert Thistle.

We had the pleasure of staying two nights with Maureen and Warner. They anticipated every need and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Our room was tastefully decorated,and the lofted luxury of the pillow top mattress was extremely comfortable (especially after we spent the day hiking the Narrows). We didn't take advantage of the outdoor pool... More

We were thrilled when we arrived to find the Desert Thistle even better than we expected. Zion was our primary destination and our lodging was secondary but the pool, jacuzzi, luxiourious bed and beautiful room became a highlight. The park and free shuttle service were only a few minutes away and the owners had great recommendations for restaurants. I would... More

My wife, Joan, and I stayed with Maureen and Warner in June 2014 during our visit to Utah from the UK. When we first arrived and Maureen and Warner greeted us and showed us round their lovely house we couldn't stop smiling. It is lovely, relaxing and the perfect base for exploring Zion National Park. Maureen and Warner are both... More

This was the most lovely place we ever had in the USA. Maureen and Warmer were so kind in every way you can think of. For me, i am Dutch, it is a little hard to express my gratitude and warm feelings we experienced during our stay with them. We did have some problems finding another B&B or hotel because... More
