Its massive sandstone walls, some as high as 3,800 feet, offer an opportunity for serenity and reflection for all who visit—and Zion Lodge offers the only in-park lodging inside this hiker’s paradise. Enjoy a selection of comfortable and spacious accommodations, a year-round restaurant serving local favorites and a wide variety of ways to keep you entertained during your stay in Zion National Park.

You stay here for the easy access to Zion. Outside of that our room was not clean…just take a peek behind any dresser or night stand and you will see exactly what I mean. If you need to check work emails, or be in contact with people back home, you should consider staying in Springdale instead because the Internet strength is terrible. We had to take the shuttle or drive to Springdale for Internet access. Before they close out your bill, ask to review it. Our bill had extra charges on it. When I asked the senior staff person about them, she was extremely rude and said she couldn’t do anything about it now because she closed out the room, and I’d have to call the manager. I called the manager, and still have not received the refund we are owed. Finally, the more senior staff at the front desk are in desperate need of hospitality training. Again, you stay here for easy access to Zion, but if any level of hospitality or even average Internet access is needed, stay in Springdale.

As with all national park lodges, you are really paying for location. However, there are some things that Zion Lodge is doing very well and some things they are doing very poorly. The lodge is in a very beautiful and convenient location. Even when it’s busy during the day, you can find quiet spaces and plenty of breathing room. In the evening, after the shuttles stop running, it’s peaceful and rejuvenating. We loved going out to the front of the lodge every night to watch the deer eat on the grass and look for other animals that might come by (we saw a ringtail one night!). My husband and I stayed in a western cabin with two beds. The room was very comfortable and well-appointed, and it was also very dirty. This is a universal truth among national park lodges, it seems, and is just expected at this point - but Zion was a even a level below that. It really appeared that housekeeping only changed the linens and made the beds, but everything else was pretty skanky. We are not clean freaks, but this would make anyone cringe a bit. The food at Zion is pretty enjoyable, and we loved the outdoor deck off the restaurant. The breakfast buffet was super delicious and we definitely looked forward to it every morning. Lunch and dinner were fine, perhaps a bit uninspired, but they tasted good and the prices were right. Our stay was pretty great until the last day, when it all went so wrong that it’s almost hard to believe. First, we realized that there were undisclosed charges on our bill. The woman checking us out was beyond rude - really, if you don’t like your job, another might be suitable. She told us in a nasty way that she couldn’t do anything about it because she already closed out the stay, and she told us to call back later in the day when her manager was there. (Spoiler alert: We did that. That was 5 days ago and after being told twice that we’d be refunded, we still haven’t been. The senior staff member we spoke to last said that the manager had a list of refunds to process. We are unsurprised.) But worst of all was when our rental car broke down when we were trying to leave. I will spare you the many, many gory details, but make this mental note - if you break down, you are on your own. Staff told us that the tow truck driver wasn’t allowed to use the gate code because he wasn’t a guest - but they had no other suggestions for how we get our car out of the park. They also wouldn’t let an Uber driver come through the gate because they weren’t a guest - which didn’t ultimately matter because there are no Lyft or Uber drivers in the area, not even in Springdale. They also shrugged their shoulders when we asked how we could get out of the park with all of our luggage - they simply suggested that we take the shuttle like everyone else. From there, what happened was not their concern, which we were all but told. This tainted what was otherwise a lovely stay, and it’s hard to recommend the lodge for this reason. However, people will still stay and I don’t expect that this review will change things. Just make sure you have a really great car!

We stayed in a spacious lodge king suite and my older daughter and partner were in the queen suite in the Sentinel building. We loved the well appointed rooms and fridge but especially the balcony and chairs overlooking the lawn and deer. The access to the shuttle is awesome. Horseback riding and Hiking trails right out the front door. Very short drive to Springdale. Highly recommend the Bit and Spur for dinner. In early June we didn’t fight too many crowds and found the service at the restaurant and front desk to be good. Like most hotels, daily housekeeping is non-existent. The property’s very unreliable internet service might be an issue for some. There is a free house phone at the front desk which helped us out greatly with some issues at home and activity planning. The biggest area for improvement was that the hallway trash/recycling built up over 4 days and was unsightly. This didn’t diminish our overall very positive experience at this peaceful historic landmark hotel. Highly recommend!

In our view, staying in the Park at the Lodge is the ONLY way to go! Like others, views are amazing and the access to the trails, simple and very short shuttle rides. Felt sorry for folks who shuttled in all the way in from Springdale. Packed buses in and packed going out and long trip. We stayed in the large Lodge building and were quite pleased. Clean and comfortable. Patio furniture could of used a dusting though. Bed was comfortable and got a good nights sleep. This park is no exception from all other National Parks this year, short staffing!!! If you keep this in mind and keep some patients, you will have a great time. Agree with most others, food is just an "ok". You will have to wait in line, but won't go hungry. Eating outside of the Park is much better. We were very pleased that we choose May to visit rather than the summer! Still LOTS of people. Good luck in trying to get a reservation, but will be worth it if successful! Oh, only one real negative; check-out lady needs to put on a smile or find a new job. Only one in any National Park we've been in whom seemed not to like her job nor be helpful or appreciative to those whom visit.

MICE INFESTATION. If I could give this place zero stars, I would. My family and I stayed here last week and were so excited as it was our first vacation in over two years. We checked in on May 16, and around 2 AM on May 17, I was awaken by mice inside our lodge! There were 5 mice running back and forth between our cabin and the one adjacent to ours. Even worse, they were bringing in dead mice into our cabin and leaving them under one of the beds. We immediately alerted the front desk and checked out by around 3 AM. The front desk claimed this never happened before, but if you scroll down to other reviews left by others, you'll see a common theme of mice and bed bugs inside the cabins. The lodge refused to move us to another room, and we stayed in the lobby until it was light outside and we left, cutting our two night stay down to about half a night.

Best location, views and price since you stay inside the park. You have free parking there and we saw about 15 deer that are frequent visitors at the lodge at night. We saw a bunch of deer and some turkey. Our kids loved it. The restaurant is great, convenient and great prices. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner they over our 3 day visit to Zion. It was great to walk out to the emerald pool 3 trails. Definitely worth it to keep trying to reserve online a hotel, since there were cancellations that finally fit for at least one night for it fam of five.

Location is everything when it comes to National Parks and Zion Lodge is no exception. Smack dab in the middle of Zion National Park, it’s super convenient, especially since you get parking at the lodge. You need a code to enter the road to the lodge and you get a permit to display, so it’s not easy for people who aren’t staying there to take up spots. It’s not the cleanest place I’ve ever stayed in but I tried to look past it because of its location. The reception staff couldn’t be nicer. As far as the restaurant went, we had breakfast one morning and it was fine. Another morning, we got biscuit and egg sandwiches to go. Unfortunately, staffing is a problem, so don’t expect the quickest service.

Location. Location. Location. Being right at shuttle stop number 5 in the middle of the most scenic area of Zion NP is an exceptional bonus. Room was comfortable; surprisingly good lighting. There is a place for a mini fridge but no fridge there. There is an ice machine so you can keep things cold in a cooler. Bed was comfortable. Lovely pictures of the park apparently by resident artists on the walls. The Watchman Lodge has a nice common area with sofa, tables, fireplace and microwave. Is is fantastic being IN the park to start activities EARLY before the hordes descend!!

Stayed here for our last night in Zion. Wanted to do a split stay so we could experience Zion once all the daytrippers left. Unfortunately, it rained really hard the day we checked in so our grand plans of hiking Emerald Pools that afternoon were delayed. Due to the rain, the Lodge was overflowing with people who were in the park and seeking shelter - including visitors from large tour busses. We got there around 2pm and the front desk said our room was ready. This was great as we were able to get take out from the Red Rock Grill and bring it back to the room and escape the crowds. The room was clean and basic. Very similar to our room at Bryce Canon with the Zion Lodge having a chair instead of a small table. There was no refrigerator (but we knew this going in so no issues). We just filled our cooler up with ice. There was coffee, iron, hair dryer, soap, shampoo/conditioner, etc. There was also a tv, which I didn't expect and which we actually used because of the rain. We called for additional towels and they were brought to the room within minutes. All employees and staff we encounters were kind and helpful. Since it rained for most of the night, we went to bed and got up early to hike Emerald Pools before check out. We took the Grotto, Kayenta, Emerald Pool counter clockwise path. It was so peaceful to be hiking in the park before the crowds arrive. We then went back to the Loge and cleaned up before check out. We got everything we wanted out of our experience at the lodge and would stay here again.

We spent 3 nights at the lodge, and we were very happy with how clean, quaint, and comfortable it was. The view from our balcony was amazing, and the convenience of being in the park was so worth it. We had a fridge, microwave, and coffee pot---all we needed. The gift shop and grill were a short walk away, which made it very easy. There are hiking trails right near the lodge, and you are able to drive your car to the visitor center or take the shuttle to access trails near there. I think the $230ish a night is a bargain for the location and the beauty.
