“Outstanding lodging in Zion National Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I guess the title should actually read the "only" lodging in Zion National Park, but that doesn't detract from the ideal location and wonderful accommodations offered by this lodge. The lodge is located on the main canyon road in the park which is accessible only by shuttle in the summer time (rest assured, those with lodge reservations are given a pass to drive the road back to the lodge only during this time), and offers astounding views of the local wildlife and canyon itself. Quite simply, the location cannot be beat, and the price is comparable to that of many other hotels where we've stayed.

Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 teenage daughters) fit comfortably in one of the hotel rooms with a roll away bed. There was enough room to accommodate us, although the lodging was a bit snug with the luggage factored in. While it wasn't cavernous, the room did allow us to rest comfortably without being on top of one another. Overall, the rooms and linens were clean. The covered porch was a nice touch and allowed us to sit outside in the evening and enjoy the views. Our building (and I think it's common to every building) had a common area for lounging or playing games. Perhaps my one main gripe was actually the location of our room in the building which was directly across from the housekeeping laundry facilities and was quite loud in the morning once the staff started up the machinery. Because we were in Zion to explore, this was not a major issue since our family was up early each day anyway. But, something to consider if like to sleep past 8am.

Wi-fi usage is limited to two devices per room at a time. A little issue that only slightly disappointed a few device-strapped kids, but we were all able to work around it (wi-fi usage in the main lodge is not similarly capped). Again, not a major issue for us, but something to be aware of.

Staff we encountered during our stay were very courteous and helpful. When we requested a rollaway bed at check-in, it was brought to our room almost immediately. Requests for extra towels and lines were also responded to immediately. Check-in was quick and friendly.

The main lodge included a gift shop and a restaurant that served breakfast, lunch and dinner, and also included a quick service cafe with more limited hours. For dinner, the restaurant requires advance reservations, but the lounge does not. Since we arrived a bit later in the evening, our family just opted for the lounge service. The dinner (consisting of several burgers and beverages, including two beers) was a bit pricey ($80 with tip), but not outside the realm of comparable options. The food and service were both very good.

Book early (we booked about 9 months in advance) to ensure availability as this lodge seems to fill-up very quickly.

All in all, a fantastic choice when exploring Zion. Location, value and comfort are really very good. We would definitely stay here again.

My daughter and her friend joined me on a hiking trip in Zion National Park, and we chose to stay at the only in-park hotel, the Zion Lodge. What a magnificent choice! The rooms were comfortable and our first-floor room had a porch on which we could sit and just stare at the incredible vistas of sandstone and gypsum cliffs. The lodge's Red Rock restaurant served excellent meals, and even in mid-summer, wasn't overly busy. And the service staff were very helpful, and gave great advice on hiking routes to take, the shuttle bus schedules, and weather outlooks. Everything is well-maintained, and you can't beat the easy access to all of the hiking trails.

Room Tip: Get a first floor room, and if you want close access to the main lodge, ask for a room in a building...

Book as far in advance as possible to secure a room at the Lodge; it's well worth it. Location is ideal. The food and service are very good. Despite being inside the park and in Utah, they have a good wine list and a generous pour for a cocktail. Really this was the best part of our trip. But be prepared its a bit rustic.

We loved spending the weekend in one of the lodges small historic cabins. Everything from the carved headboards to the working fireplace just added to the feeling of a cabin in the woods. From our window we even saw deer strolling by and 1 fox. Each cabin had a porch to sit on too and was great for relaxing in the evenings. The cabins are not fancy but very well maintained and are more like period pieces. Even in the heat of summer the air conditioning and ceiling fan kept us cool. The lodge itself was within easy walking distance and had a nice but standard breakfast buffet. Dinner was quite tasty. Even with the small double beds I would still highly recommend these cute cabins in fact I think we need to come back without my daughter for a couples weekend.

Room Tip: Cabins come in quads or doubles. For less noise request on that is a double. Also these cabins have...

In May, no crowds! Best time for kids. Cool temps. Hotel was clean, and convenient location. My 10 and 12 yr old could do evening walks after dinner. Food at restaurant ok for kids but just ok for adults, not spectacular..

Stayed while visiting Zion. Can't beat location, your basically in the park since the entrance is a five minute slow walk. Room was huge, separate bedroom, sitting area and full kitchen. Staff spent 45 minutes giving us info/tips on check in. Also had a nice balcony with mountain views to drink some wine after hiking in the park. Would recommend to friends!

We stayed in a cabin. It was clean, spacious, and nicely decorated (according to the literature it had been remodeled in 2010 to recapture the original charm). It was a little dark but the front porch was bright with amazing views. Do spend time on the front lawn. It is beautifully maintained. During the day you can people watch and in the evening the deer take over! The location is ideal as you can come back during the day before heading out on your next hike... I was very glad to have an air conditioner but it was loud and did wake me up. For us, the lodge was the perfect way to enjoy Zion.
