I wish there was a rating between "average" and "very good," because the appropriate rating based on my personal experience is "good." We had to go to Las Vegas for a quick trip and figured we might as well check out Zion. I realized quickly that a trip to Zion takes some advance planning. I booked everything about a week... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2016

A couple friends had their wedding at the Ponderosa Ranch Resort, so ~20 of my friends rented out a house here for the weekend. The house was really nice and had everything we needed. The breakfast at the main resort was good, and the two pools were a lot of fun. I'd definitely recommend this place if you're looking for... More

This resort is about 6 miles from the East Gate of Zion National Park, 4 q/2 of those miles are uphill to get to resort. They have quite a range of accommodations. We stayed in a 3 bedroom private house. The amenities include swimming pools, zip line, horse back riding, atv's and other Hingis. The food in Ricks for dinner... More

We were impressed with the menu, but the food was average. Hubby had a huge pork chop and I had a steak---Not hand trimmed. But worse was the Service! Terrible!! She said she forgot, but we were her only table!?

This is a great option for "glamping". We really wanted to go camping as a family, but (flying from Mexico) weren't able to travel with all of our camping equipment, so I was thrilled to find a glamping option close to Zion. The tents were great, and our kids had a wonderful time. The food was good and all the... More

It is not always you plan a trip, and everything you needed and we're hoping for were there on arrival, but this place delivers! And just when you thought everything was perfect, they pull out some more. this place is where you want to plan your trip around! We did and will always remember. Thanks again!

So this place is great! Swimming pool, free showers, affordable restaurant, and great location. We enjoyed our campsite and liked the place a lot. However, when we arrived this almost was not the case. We paid for a large tent site and were put into a place called "Tent City." This place was not on the resort map and also... More

Visited last month with friends. Cannot wait to come back with my family. They have everything and are affordable. Clean family friendly and they have a lot to offer. We went last minute and although the website said they were booked. A friend called and they say come on over.

This is the second time we have rented these western cabins. We enjoy these cabins even though they are bare bones. It might be nice if they removed one of the three beds in a couple of cabins and replace it with a small table. Also the breakfast was good.

We stayed in a condo for 1 night and moved to a cart for 1 night. Both experiences were unique - though i prefer the condo over the cart! We arrived late afternoon on the first day, and checked in the condo - which came across as quite impressive. Each condo has a common room, and bunk bed comfortable for... More
