“Great place to stay when visiting Zion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We spent 3 nights here in early September. It was our first trip to the region and the scenery is fantastic. The location of this Inn makes it the perfect place to stay when visiting Zion Nat'l Park because you can easily walk to the visitor center. The grounds are beautiful and we had a nice large room with a beautiful deck. Only suggestions for improvement to make it an excellent rating:
bath towels weren't very high quality
the lighting in the bathroom was blinding (like those hot lights used to keep food warm!)
plastic cups were tacky
A/C wasn't really adequate for size of room
Overall these are minimal complaints that are offset by the positive features.

We stayed here with family for 5 day trip to Zion National Park. Cliffrose has wonderful facilities, a lovely setting, is adjacent to the park (a 5 minute walk to the buses that service the park (cars are not allowed in many of the more popular parts of the park), and is in the lovely little town of Springdale. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with kitchen, looked over the Virgin River and cliffs on the other side. The room was quiet and all amenities worked. I would recommend this as a great spot for families and couples looking to spend some time in Zion.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Zion NP. Our riverside cabin was fantastic, lots of space, a terrace overlooking the gardens and virgin river with magnificent sandstone cliffs as a backdrop and humming birds feeding.

Rooms are clean, modern, well appointed and comfortable and the staff freindly, you could not reasonably ask for more.

The entrance to Zion NP is a five minute walk and the free Zion Shuttle service has a stop right outside.

We have been staying at the Cliffrose for over 20 years. They continue to make it a great place to enjoy your trip to Zion National Park. We have never been disappointed. They have recently made several additional improvements, making it better. The garden setting makes it a great place to enjoy the beauty of the area.

Room Tip: For larger groups look into the River View Suites.

Wonderful place to stay right on the edge of Zion national park. Don't think twice about staying here. Wonderful views with hummingbird feeders on your balcony. Clean and clear rooms. Lovely pool and 24hr jacuzzi. Best hotel we stayed at on our two week trip to the region.

Room Tip: Riverside view second floor - or first floor if you want to stroke the cats!

We stayed here two nights while visiting Zion and hiking the Narrows, and this is a beautiful place to stay. At first impression it strikes you as a typical motel when you pull into the front parking lot, but don't let that fool you. We booked a 2-queen riverside room and requested the second floor, which is what we got. The room was updated and plenty spacious, with a sizable balcony overlooking the back lawn and the Virgin River. The beds were very comfortable, and there is a small pullout as well.
The location is fantastic - just a few minutes walk along the path takes you to the entrance to the park where you can catch the shuttles. There is one lodge between the Cliffrose and the park entrance. But what really sets the Cliffrose apart, though, is the grounds and the landscaping. There are gorgeous flowers and plants everywhere, with plenty of shade and little paths/walkways through the property. They clearly pay a lot of attention to detail - you could see it in the way the gardeners tended to their work.
The pool and jacuzzi area are extremely nice as well. The section of the Virgin River right behind the lodge is great for tubing - the kids will love it. The store right next to the park entrance sells tubes in various sizes and at reasonable prices, so you don't need to worry about bringing them.
The rates are a bit high, which is the only factor that keeps my value rating from being a five. On the other hand, that seemed to be the case at most of the places in Springdale because it's a small town. So overall, this is a great place to stay. Gorgeous property with gorgeous views.

Room Tip: Riverside rooms directly face the Virgin River and are on the side facing away from the main road. A...

Don't think twice about it -- this is where you should stay. Excellent location, service, grounds, pool, hot tub, stream and view, rooms, hummingbirds ....oh and did I say LOCATION? We are not a family that goes to luxury resorts expecting to be pampered...this doesn't have what I would call an uncomfortable/'elitist' feel. (Although I'd say the cotton sheets qualify as over the top.) It is a welcoming, beautiful lodge that is WALKING distance from one of the most spectacular places in the U.S. It is also next to a great breakfast/lunch place (with gluten free pizza and cookies! and great coffee) and right by the shuttle to 'town', which you could really walk to but is nice when it is hot.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra to reserve a room next to the river, with a full view of the red mountains, on...
